I have that book! And generally like the author, but my first reaction to the cover was: ‘That’s so 80”. The cover almost prevented me from buying the book truth be told.
Welcome Back My Friends, To The Show That Literally Never Ends.
This picture was apparently taken during an earlier set than the one from Carnelians. His shirt is still intact.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Shirt?
Well, this picture explains why his shirt was wrecked in the last one. Never sing while standing too close to lasers.
All I see is a Spacemanilow.
@Rodney C. Johnson: I like the author too. My only beef is with the cover.
@Smith: “Spacemanilow.” Heh.
Spacemanilow? As a huge Barry Manilow fan I don’t see that at all. Obviously that’s suppose to be Neil Diamond. It’s even up there in the title.
I believe the working title to this book was Neil Diamond: 2137
The Sixth Doctor starts his floor show.
I thought he was a Las Vegas sword-swallower.
@Jami: Come on! That shirt is pure Copacabana!
Allow me to be the first to point out, then, that the FRICKIN’ LASER BEAMS HAVE SIZZLED OFF HIS FIFTH LEFT FINGER!
It’s heartening to know that even people in far futures and alternate universes still have to put up with crappy music.
“AAANND III-III… WWILLL AAALWAYS LLLOVE YOU-UU-UU-UUU…”
@Smith – Nah. That shirt is pure 70s Neil Diamond. Pants and belt too. Plus the hair looks a lot like his hair on Greatest Hits V 2.
Hey, I like Neil too, not as much as Barry, but I do enjoy his music. Especially Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show. But that cover is SO Neil.
@Jami: I guess it just shows that cheesy pop, like mathematics, is universal.
Is that supposed to be a belt? Or has he inadvertently picked up a series of symbiotic space leeches that grant him sparkly powers?
I vote for the latter.
Appropriating this for “Look at all the fucks I give” memes.
Is this a disco version of “Rock Star”?
