I must admit, when I saw earlier today that today was Alien day, I assumed it was something relating to our friends from Outer Space, who according to Eric at least, include me in their numbers. Yes, I only wish! I knew there was a UFO fair somewhere near Stacie, in New York State sometime soon, but thats 3 weeks tomorrow, seemingly.
No, this one relates to the film of the same name, which was first released to the public 40 years ago today. How many sequels have we have since then? Way too many I’m sure, as Hollywood seems to lack for original ideas, lets face it.
Actually, no, I’ve never seen any of the films? Modern horror has never been a big thing for me, as I cant see the pleasure in being scared to death. I know, I went and saw ‘It’ but my disclaimer is that I had no idea what the film was about at the time I agreed to go and see it. I survived, but put it this way, I wont be rushing to see the sequel!
But yes, I knew, even before my brain went AWOL that I was getting old. When you find out that the original Alien film is now 40 years old, it doesnt make me feel any younger!
Yes, I’ll stick to trying to make contact with those aliens with flying saucers, and spaceships, who are probably likely to do nothing more horrible than anal probing (eek!), or brainwashing (which I’d enjoy too much), sorry. Talking of which, if anyone has a place on a spaceship/flying saucer, heading to Pine Bush, New York in 3 weeks time, let me know. Alien suit coming off again is purely optional! 😉
OK, video time. One of those lesser known, but very apt David Bowie tracks from long ago.
