January 2016

Leading from

Friday 29th January 2016
1) Added segment from High-Rise Q&A with Ben Wheatley to Alien vs Shivers and altered the title to Alien vs Shivers vs High-Rise because the question comes to surface about  Shivers  possibly being inspired by JG Ballard's fiction leading up to High-Rise. Possibly the question is only interesting because it's Ben Wheatley who made the High-Rise movie, whether he is right or wrong, while throwing water on the fire by adding a quote from David Cronenberg: Interview with Seth Gr├╝nberg on the matter of when he started reading Ballard's work.

Tuesday, January 19th 2016
1) Made separate page for Alien: Six Million Dollar Man Inspires Ash the robot that was previously a part of Unleashing human disguised androids and this has created a bit of an odd problem because now there are two pages about the same thing, one detailing how ideas for the Ash seemed to have been drawing from the second Six Million Dollar Man story featuring a robot (see Alien: The Development of Ash via The Six Million Dollar Man). Eventually the two will be merged together.

Wednesday January 6th 2016
1) Created an index page for the movie Xtro. Nothing much there apart from a link to the makers of Attack of the Block chatting away erroneously about that film, which isn't surprising since one had only seen photos and the other had only seen bits of the movie, and that bit of chat was tied in with slightly erroneous chat about Alien too. Had they been drinking at the pub before hand?
