The 2088 Intergalactic Research Team
Featuring not one but three All-Galaxy Beard Cultivators and no less than two All-State Tight Rope Jai Alai Champions (The playing of Jai Alai upon tight ropes of course), the Intergalactic Madbury Club explores the Earth without second thought to danger, risk, or bodily harm. Equipped in specially engineered Puma equipment they boldly step where no man has before stepped in Chazebralope-print sneakers. Meet the cast of characters.
Phillip T. Annand
Chief Exploratory Officer // Director of Near-Death Experiences
Some say he was born in the woods and raised with Kodiak bear cubs. Others say he’s a glorified Boy Scout with particularly long limbs. Evidently, Chief Exploratory Officer Phillip T. Annand’s background is as mysterious as the journeys he embarks on. A scar on his left arm, in the shape of a cowbell, is said to reveal his true origins when prodded with tweezers drenched in rubbing alcohol. But that could also just be infection as a result of eating squirrels for the past two weeks.
Ancient Sound Frequency Engineer // Director of “Nah, I Ain’t Going In That” Committee
Ellington Hammond, officially, is responsible for ensuring the optimal sound frequency and translation of ancient growls, moans, and cries. Though he’s most often found playing the voice of reason when missions go awry. No sir – you won’t catch him diving into questionably instable volcanic pits. But don’t mistake his sense for softness. Rumor has it that he once punched a manatee, off the coast of Djibouti, so hard that it swam backwards for the rest of its adult life. But shhh.
Vice President of Cross-Galactic Infiltration // Fingernail Model
First impressions may leave you to believe that Matthew is a shy, well-behaved young man. His track record of foreign prison stints would attest to the contrary. Once a rogue spy for the Zickwadian Republic, Matthew, or Matty as he’s called for the sake of security, turned over a new leaf upon joining the ranks of Madbury. His slithery sleuthing skills are now used for rescue missions rather than mineral heists. And we’re all better off for it – except the Zickwadian rebels.
President of Visual Sensory Communications // Mr. Still Got That Jumper From 18 Ft. Out
You can’t win them all, except when you do. That saying has absolutely nothing to do with the life and times of Bryan Stevenson but it sure sounds cool. Anyways. The Club has changed some. But Bryan has changed the Club. A passing interest in doodling evolved into a full-fledged career in map-making, allowing him to chart territories of the world widely undiscovered and thus unknown to the greater public. His findings are legendary. But his story is untold. Just the way he intends it – for now.
Head of Ancient Linguistics Research Committee // Master of His Domain
Marcus Arman doesn’t remember his birthday. But he can recite the alphabet in sixty-four dialects, all of which date back to or before the standing of the Ottoman Empire. A chronic case of amnesia may make daily tasks quite difficult, but he’s not paid to know how to operate a vehicle or remember his eye color. He’s paid to ease communication between the past and present – something he does with the efficiency of three woodpeckers in a lumber-yard.
Prehistoric Visual Documentarian // VP of Salsa Roja Perfection Subcommittee
Ask Mama Picone what Vinny does best and she’ll say he’s a helluva Pictionary player. Ask her what he does nearly as good and she’ll say take photos with that “light-box machine thingy.” And you know what they say: Mama knows best. Vinny’s knack for picture taking has steadily grown throughout the course of his twenty-five years. His process is methodical, at times, taking months on end to develop exposures that focus on framing more than the mythical subject he’s commissioned to capture. You may call him crazy – we call him brother.
Executive Producer & Time-Travel Arrangement Coordinator // Den Mother
This is not Hyun’s first intergalactic rodeo. Prior to aligning forces with the Club, he led sieges on the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth moons in Saturn’s gravitational pull. These days, he spends much more time organizing instead of colonizing. As the elder statesmen in a gang of lollygaggers, Hyun is now tasked with making sure missions stay the course while managing to avoid, figuratively, pulling his hair out.
