Meet the summer roommate of the mysterious man with the hairy chest and big belly that says, "BAAAAA!" This is Big "D" Duane Vigue. This picture was taken several days after the mysterious man's hairy chest and big belly started taunting Duane, telling him to become a shepherd so he could spend weeks at a time alone with his sheep, far away from other people who might gawk.
Here is another shot of Duane. Unbeknownst to him, he was recently abducted by aliens. Since we lived across the hall from each other during the summer, it just so happened that I was abducted, too! I fell asleep that night cradling my camera, waiting for my Japanese roommate, Satoru, to perform a photogenic action of some sort. The aliens came in, whisked Duane and me away, and I snapped this picture of Duane after his examination in the holding room of the spacecraft. You can see from the drowsy glaze over his eyes that it was clearly about 4:00 am, or maybe the aliens popped his eyes out of their sockets, used them to play marbles, and replaced them. The eerie green light was most disconcerting. I was shocked to find this picture when I went to pick up my developed pictures, and it is the existence of this photograph alone that I was able to remember our abduction experience!
