Coming Attractions: The High Concept

Pretty soon I'll be able to explain the fictional link between this exciting image and former vice president Richard B. Cheney. Say what? No, really, I'm being serious here. Okay, pop quiz, hotshot; when exactly are you going to explain this cryptic link? Well, if all goes according to plan maybe a week from now? Wow. Can't believe it's almost been nearly three years since the germ of this idea took root. The ups and downs, the twists and turns, the all ins and folds. Of course nothing that's worth it is ever easy, eh? Onward.
