Some don’t believe in them at all. Others are waiting for them to come “save us” from catastrophe. But I wonder, if Ets do in fact exist, what they might actually be feeling and experiencing. Ets, The Return is a short animated series about an alliance of anxiety ridden extra-terrestrial beings from another universe who suddenly find themselves assigned to Earth.

This is a rough demo of the opening to a multi-media solo show I’m pre-producing. As a kid I used to pretend and dream about being “not from here”. I’m sure it had something to do with living “near-enough” to Roswell and seeing movies like Escape To Witch Mountain and Star Wars. That was all fine and good in pretend-time as a kid, but as adult life started to creep in, I began to experience “feeling” alien more and more….like I didn’t fit in anywhere. That wasn’t the plan! Sure, I felt that way when I found myself in Spokane, or the first year after moving to LA…but its been really stressed lately by having three “walking while black” incidents in a row, punctuated by a significant UFO sighting twelve hours before the third. I write about it at http://jimisroom.com/blog/?p=104 Is the universe telling me to get on with this solo show? Here is a preview of the opening of my solo show called Lost doy…or How I Happened Upon the Pretty Blue Planet and Why I Decided to Stay. I’ve been working on the theme for awhile…experimenting with playing with the fiction that I came here with a twin brother from another place to observe this planet from a safe distance, but after hitting a rift, we got separated, and I ended up temporarily having to take human form in the deserts of New Mexico. My goal? Learn how to be “human” and “blend in” until I can find my twin and go back home. Of course, by the time I’ve learned how to be a good human, and by the time I started to move from place to place and school to school with a military family, I begin to forget why I came here in the first place. Lost doy is the story of forgetting and then remembering again just as our planet completes a major turning point. It will be multi-media, have some music, and will feature comedic monologues and stand-up. I hope to make people laugh, and maybe help remember.
A song about finding your inner and outer guides.
Jimi is at "basic training" and forgot to THINK before he spoke...!
The first version of this was a silent one that I found myself compelled to do after we invaded Iraq in 2003. I had very mixed feelings about the invasion. I wanted very much to believe that humanity is basically good and well-meaning...and that sometimes we just needed to be reminded of our gift of love...reminded of our own divinity to literally create heaven on earth. I wrote the music years ago and layed vocals over long after...somehow it seemed to fit the images for me... I hope you like the vid.
