Explaining alternative history to the sandal-clad intelligentsia of Olde Cape Cod- http://www.capecodtoday.com/blogs/index.php/Sonntag
"This is a typical DIMENSIONS Magazine illustration from 13 years ago, right before DIM began its inevitable morph into a purely online entity. Narrated by the guy next door, the fiction follows the delightfully everything-you-know-is-wrong worldview of this personal-ad, pinup-pix, and romance-fiction periodical for plus-size women and their admirers... the conventionally-beautiful roommate doesn't 'get it' that the dude is obsessed not with her but with the supersize whipped-cream-eating heroine. Note the 'Stop The Insanity' t-shirt. This plus the OUTLAW BIKER job which I landed at the same period took me deep into the nooks, crannies and elbow dimples of the 'outsider' working-class American psyche... fine folks..."

I just love this little tunnel of unreality where everyone's mincing around in their underwear on the front porch, Ned.

A few questions:

What does "Game Boy" refer to?

What's the guy got in his hands?

Question Linguini for the Sadeian

The story describes the guy making a periscope by inserting a mirror into a milk carton... the 20th-century equivalent of 'lurking'. GameBoy was, I dunno, a platform for playing vidgames or the company that made it? I wanted something to balance Stop The Insanity, which was Susan Powter's infomercial empire...

Awesome pic, Ned!

Although when I see the skinny woman's shirt, there's only one thing I can think of. Long after "Stop the Insanity" has gone down to that special circle of hell reserved for short-lived fad diets, Space Ghost lives on...

ETA: And yeah, Game Boy was Nintendo's first-generation handheld system. Black & white, the size of a trade paperback, and impossible to see if the light level in the room wasn't just right... but I always enjoyed it .

Same reason as why the painter's airbrush is dripping.
