i) Updated Alien 3 Cocoons with news that the story about David Fincher's "Thinking Shell" as told to Cinefex was a fib


April 1st 2021
 
i) Added: Further rewrote: Alien: The end of the line and back to the distant past. Whenever I look at the essay, i keep finding that the words are mixed up or meaningless as if a digital whirlwind is forever mixing everything up. This problem has gone on for years and may well continue. 

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: Alien Life Cycle Hieroglyphs according to Christopher Robinson as published in L'art et la science dans Alien

March 24th 2021
 
i) Updated Alien: Ridley's creative turnaround With the release of the longer version of the interview featured in the Ivor Powell documentary recently (https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/ivor-powell-associate-producer-of-alien-and-blade-runner/id1522552119?i=1000514095372) this means I can update the article Ridley's Creative Turnaroud with the name of the actual station where Ivor carried out the near legendary act of picking up the copy of the Metal Hurlant.
I'm obviously excited to think that Ridley saw the magazine that Ivor bought as they sat on the train, and then perhaps said "Let's have a look at that" before he picked it up. That's part of the story of the making of Alien .
