164 - I Think She's Watching Spaceballs - Week of 6/12/19

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the groundbreaking sci-fi/horror film Alien, released 40 years ago last month. For a movie that may have only been made to capitalize on the Star Wars phenomenon, it still managed to make its presence felt on its own terms. We talk about its creation, the impressive casting, its impact on us and on the culture, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual scary behavior, as well as our picks of the week.
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
What we're up to this week:
Prepping for the summer D&D game; also found a Tim Wilson comedy special on YouTube and laughed myself sad
Busy week with the dog rescue/shelter work (often very sad work)
Saddened by the passing of Leon Redbone this week, a unique musical talent who will be missed
Reading the homework for next week's interview πŸ™‚

Gee, we started off with some dark stuff from the week, and then jump into a really dark movie. Not intentional, but it sure is coincidental πŸ˜‰
But what a great movie, right? Seriously, if you haven't seen it, we highly recommend it. You might not want to be eating when the crew is, though.
