If I read a page of it, it means often nothing. As time goes by the context of everything being said appears to fragment into nothing. It's almost perhaps as if I'm at times word blind with the computer screen content
So if I divide every paragraph up with coloured subheadings for each individual action and decision being described, it's more navigable and I can get a better idea of what has been written that's often a fusion of three or four different quotes from various interviews. With that, every sentence has to be set a line apart.
However this this form of breaking information up probably might be better for all, because I'm not really convinced that anyone ever has much of a clue about what's being written in these long articles, they don't have the time to skim through the words and if they read too much on the screen, they're likely to become disorientated.
However I've noticed that one popular poster of Alien material and gots lots of enthusiastic thumbs up (about a month later that's almost 300) , I've realised that the person quoted a section from my writeup about the Yellow Nostromo although I wasn't being given credit.
Everyone could understand what was being communicated within those words that accompanied several photographs of the Nostromo spaceship model painted yellow, and what is more I was able to recognise his own words even though it was a snippet of what he had written. So, I thought that was interesting. It was my style of wording here anyway, as if to describe the sequence events as they've been described to happen from fragments of numerous interviews, whether those events were really as described or not.
iii) Added an index page for E.L. Kirchner's "Studio of Painter" (1920)
vii) Added a separate page for Illustration for "Europ Assistance" (published 1981) by Moebius references the “The Painter’s Eye” (1942) by Salvador Dali? which used to be on the page for the Europ Assistance illustration

i) I decided to break the "Alien Covenant: The xenomorph - a stripped-down killing machine" down into a number of different pages and with that added information based on quotes from Cinefex #153 and the Conor O'Sullivan interview for the Reel Feedback podcast. Unfortunately, the story of the process of whatever went on there seems very fragmented still.

i) Added Alien beast by Fraco since people were still confused about the illustration and thought it was by Moebius

i) Had a go at adding more details to Alien production timeline May 1978 and Alien Production Timeline June 1978 such as Giger having an acid trip in June when she arrived. I keep finding things that ought to be there are not and I thought that I had written a chapter on Giger's use of LSD but somehow it has been erased, and one wonders what to make of these inconsistancies. Although I have written all of thise out in the timelines which should really be brief, they might as well become more complicated, in order for me to really work out what I think that I am doing rather than guessing about what these brief references mean
July 4th 2021i) Added: Alien Covenant: Alien Newborn by Colin Shulver
i) Updated Alien: The TV series
June 30th 2021
i) Added: the make of the radio control box seen in the photo at Alien: David Watling's Alien Head
I don't know if we can find out enough because Ridley only gives vague fragments of the development of his ideas for the evolution of the Space Jockey scenario which is infuriating for an Alien fan.
What we have are bare bones and very little to flesh it out with. Posting quotes from Ridley as something conveying meaning isn't good enough, because they don't always mean that much for anyone really wanting to know something.
Is there another direction to go with this? I'd like to go there.

i) Added: A separate page for "HR Giger: The theme of Nut the Sky Goddess involved in Giger choice of grave stone" was made on 3rd March 2021 although the information had been published here as soon as photos showed up of the tomb stone which was shortly after the completion of the grave memorial in 2016
