Alien

The local community college Humanities Department is having another month-long film series. Back in April it had a science fiction theme, and I spoke when they showed "Fahrenheit 451". This month the theme is horror.

Since they were showing "Alien" on Oct. 22, I volunteered again to make some petinent comments. The attendance was much lower than expected, but we've been having this Texas monsoon weather and a lot of students probably didn't want to go out.

The series ends with a showing next Thursday of "Bubba Ho-tep" and Joe Lansdale is coming to town. This outta be good. The college is taking us both out for lunch Thursday, and I plan to write up a story for ther entertainmemt page of next Sunday's paper.
