Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
Overhead view of the prisoner commons area, a space 10x8 meters with a high ceiling. Sort of a bare-bones lounge, one corner has a videoscreen with several prisoners watching from benches; in another corner, a ping-pong table inside a plexiglass-type casing; the third, a row of exer-cycles; the fourth, a few tables for playing card games. Nicole and her new friend are walking through the center of the space. Three guards are in evidence.
Buford: Most of us spend t'e time between breakfast and dinner here in t'e commons area.
Two-shot of Nicole and the Buford, Nicole looks around. In the background we see other prisoners walking past, eyeing Buford but saying nothing. Buford is pointing at something out of the frame.
Nicole: Most of us?
Buford: I like t'e library -- it's right t'rough t'at door.
Another two-shot of Nicole and Buford.
Buford: But we can't carry on a confersation in t'ere. For t'at, we choose between t'e card tables and t'e exer-cycles.
Nicole: Um, let's try the card tables.
Nicole and Buford are seated at an otherwise unoccupied card table. But they sit with their backs to the table and look out across the commons area.
Nicole: Say -- nobody ever told me your name.
Buford: Nobody efer told me yours, eit'er.
Nicole laughs, the two shake hands as if greeting one another for the first time.
Nicole: That's right! I'm Nicole Oresme.
Buford: Buford Beltran
Nicole looks at Buford thoughtfully. Buford is suddenly sullen.
Nicole: A Spanish surname -- are you from Hygiea?
Buford: Yeah, Hygiea. Originally.
Nicole places a hand consolingly on Buford's arm.
Nicole: I'm sorry if that's a touchy subject.
Buford: S'okay. It's just t'at it's been almost 4 t-years since I'fe seen home. I miss it.
Nicole and Buford:
Nicole: I guess -- I've only been away from home three months and it seems like a lifetime now.
Buford: Luna will do t'at to you.
