BLURB

SCREECH! You are startled by the sudden squeal of a braking car. Nothing is visible from the beaming headlights. Squinting hard to get a better view, you are suddenly yanked out of your concentration by a loud HONK. A friendly voice rings out - “Hey man, hop in. We’re having a party!” BOOM BOOM BOOM goes the base. “Our Lumbo’s got everything and anything you could possibly imagine. You won’t regret it.” You hesitate, considering whether to take up the shadowed driver's offer, when the voice again resonates over the engine’s RRRR RRRR RRRR - “Just come in! Plenty of room for you! Everything’s cool and easy in here, man.” He sounds a bit sharper, just that tad bit more... desperate? Why? What's going on? WOOF WOOF! A disembodied chorus of women and men (…and dogs?) ring out. Something inexplicable pulls you in, and against your better judgment, you yell out “I’m coming!” As you step into this other dimension, you let the ride take you away to whatever adventure you are destined for tonight. VROOM VROOM! [Alexia Kalteis]
