Marc Bullard made this mashup of Speilberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)and various redneck sound effects. Somehow, this version seems to be a much more realistic common ground between us and any intelligent life forms who would be dumb enough to travel to the Mojave desert to play a keytar with Richard Dreyfuss. Yep, it’s just stupid aliens who want to do that. And me.
When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
