Insane-O-Tron is a hilarious trip into the absurd and surreal, with stories about a family-themed TV show gone wrong, inter-species dating, a talking haircut, trick-or-treating with a candy wizard, magical dancing ponies and an earwig’s day trip to the gutter. These stories are insane!
Insane-O-Tron is a collection of six short stories about unexpected characters in crazy situations, with plenty of action, adventure, Sci-Fi, fantasy, friendship, family and romance.
Nick Alverson is an artist of many talents. He's the writer of an awesomely ridiculous book called Insane-O-Tron, he writes screenplays, an absurd blog called Nick's Noodle, he makes funny videos, draws truly terrible pictures and makes halfway decent music from time to time.
Nick originally hails from Reno, NV and now makes his home in Los Angeles, where it never snows and the warm climate keeps his creative juices at just the right viscosity.
Nick really wants to make you laugh. If it's with his absurd writing, crazy videos or funny songs, if you're laughing then Nick has done his job.
Nick is an ordained high priest in the Church of the Latter Day Dude.
Gooch likes to expand his mind. Don't judge him. He's not hurting anyone. It's not his fault, that his main source of food is an intense hallucinogenic.
He was hungry and tired from his day. Gooch filled his belly with large sticky clumps of the grass. He munched on a particularly dank patch with large crystals growing in it. Tracers started coming off of his hooves and all of the sounds around him suddenly took on an underwater echoing sort of feel. His skin felt prickly all over and his retinas expanded into two massive black discs as they allowed in the swirling kaleidoscope of brilliant colors that populated his field of vision. Seconds later, Gooch was “munching the groovy oats bag,” a pony phrase for tripping balls.
