They Live by ScOttRa They Live by ScOttRa
The Well Dressed Alien As portrayed by John F. Goff in John Carpenter's CLASSIC 1988 film "They Live."

I've been a huge fan of John Carpenter since I was a wee monster lad, in fact he was the first filmmaker I followed, while other kids where off singing the praises of Spielberg, I was sitting with my jaw hanging open watching "The Thing." And although he has admittedly had a dry streak for a while now, I still hold out, knowing that he will one day pull out the stops and create another amazing/terrifying film... I know it the same way I know that Stephen King and Prince aren't washed up yet.

John Carpenter, wrote the screenplay to "They Live" under the pseudonym "Frank Armitage". The movie is based on the short story "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson. Which can be read here.

Now, where did I leave all my bublegum?

An interesting piece of trivia:
Near the end of the film, several guards can be seen using odd scanner devices. These are actually PKE Meter props from the film Ghostbusters unaltered.

<OBEY>As always, this and all of my portraits are available for a measly $25.00 <BUY>from the store.</BUY> <CONSUME>Order yours today! <CONSUME></OBEY>

If these aliens existed, we wouldn't even know about it. I mean, for all we know, they could be disguised as anybody. Hopefully not everybody.

Looks like Jimmy Carter after his third term.

Hey bro, the story can also be read in my magazine. A talented illustrator named A.P. Fuchs handled the illustration duties for this one. Between the two of us we brought the story into the new decade. I still can't believe Ray Faraday Nelson gave me permission to publish it.
