  1. What Israel?………


  2. This really is a superlative set…it ties together so many aspects of Dick’s life, while still retaining the mystery. Love the Terry Gilliam bit. And is that Greg Proops doing the “California” part?

    To quote Gaff: “You’ve done a man’s job, sir.”


  3. Thank you, Brian!
    I really appreciate the feedback and the kind words. It was a fun piece to work on. I plan on doing others like it in the future.
