The 2013 writing contest essay

My writing contest essay is different this year. I've outgrown childish notions that the important questions that need to be answered can be done by mere garish cartoon personalities. Although they were fun to create, I was always left with the feeling my somewhat irreverent use of humor stopped the quality of my content from truly surfacing. This year we have a simple one act play. It's the emotional keening of a man trapped forever in a mechanical body searching for his soul, truth, and the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. It's a "42" thing. The judges voting dice have now been cast for better or worse. I hope my decidedly eclectic voice doesn't end up with snake eyes.

It's also viewable on my YouTube channel, along with the cartoon essay that wasn't used.
