    The spaceship’s going to do a Close Encounters flip over the mountain and hover in front of the face, making a giant, glowing waxed moustache.

    Not pictured: Anything awesome.

    From being an awesome starship to becoming a porch light. Quite the comedown in job titles.

    With apologies to They Might Be Giants:

    “There’s a cover in front of me,
    Phosphorescent posterity
    That sat on rocky heights and kept the planets UFO-free.
    Though I respect that a bit
    The proportions do not quite fit
    Just won’t fit through that glowing door so easily

    Blue guy so serious
    Catatonic or delirious…

    Blue enigma on the mountain in the twilight
    Who watches over me
    Make a little Starlord in your soul.”🎶

    Starlord: Guys? I’ve lost my big sun hat, anyone seenit?

    Us, in unison: BEHIND YOU!!!

    @JJYoyo – I like the way your brain works – GSS

    That isn’t Star Lord.
    Mind you, neither was Chris Pratt’s tiresome depiction of the guy as Richie Cunningham in space in those cruddy films…

    “I am STARLORD, the Great and Powerful. Who are you??”

  8. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’m not seeing any of the “beauty and power” the blurb promises. Anywhere. This is just… daft.

    The shining face above the shining door, considered together, looks like a phosphorescent Pez dispenser.

    @Tat, @JJ, @Emster: GSS!

  9. JJYoyo Says:

    @GSSxN: Phosphorescent Pez — GSS! And worthy of a “once you see it” tag IMO

    The blurb suggests some kind of subgenre: “Crashed Starlord Billionaire Romance.”
