Getting a feel for his “alien” role

tcr! · May 18, 2015 at 5:07 pm

Test footage from Alien was way creepy, even with the xenomorph out of costume

You may remember that the titular xenomorph in Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic Alien was sometimes depicted by a man in a suit. Here’s test footage of 6’10” Nigerian actor Bolaji Badejo practicing his extraterrestrial motions. Even with a mock-up of the xenomorph’s head alone — and Badejo running around in his underwear — these reels remain unsettling.

I love everything about this video. The only thing that would make my life more complete at this point is a summer home on LV-426.

we were talking about “in” jokes and our own personal “theater of the absurd” going on, but this crosses some lines.

You’re absolutely right. No accordion should ever be violated by a man with this kind of mustache.

The French Horn guy in #12 just looks like he’s pleading with somebody off to the side to please let him stop. There’s a backstory there, I just know there is.

Or, as I learned on the internet: If there were two cows in the hole, those two cows would collectively be Edgar. Like the Borg. Because Edgar is the one in the hole.

I suspect it’s a Zen thing.

It’s hard to find these gems in Minecraft but they are out there.

Ryan had set for the lads and led another cow into his house by growing wheat and using it to lead the cow into the hole. After much confusion, Ryan explained and said “Look, you don’t understand, Edgar is the one in the hole.” Ryan’s sentiment implied that Edgar was never a specific cow, but any cow in the hole.

You know what’s weird? The oatmeal-cat? His name actually is Edgar. I think the comment string has collapsed in on itself.

Ants use jaws to catapult themselves out of death traps

The trap-jaw ant has a won notorious reputation in the insect kingdom for its super-strong, spring-loaded mandibles, which it uses to crush prey with ease and defend its nests.

However, a new study, reported in PLOS ONE, has revealed a whole new use for its impressive jaws: flinging itself out of “death traps” set by predators.

Research carried out by Fredrick Larabee and Andrew Suarez, entomologists from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, compounds earlier findings from 2006, which showed that trap-jaw ants could use their lightning-fast mouths for “ballistic jaw propulsion”—in short, opening their jaws to 180 degrees before snapping them shut at 140 miles per hour.

More scientific evidence that mouths are for more than just eating.

Good morning from the turtle, peeps

Good morning from old man turtle

I actually took this yesterday afternoon at Gardenology but it seems fitting for right now.

Turtles always remind me of old men. Might be the wrinkly necks.

Atomic Wedgie King pleads guilty

Man pleads guilty to killing his stepfather with an atomic wedgie

Man pleads guilty to killing his stepfather with an atomic wedgie

A 33-year-old Oklahoma man has been charged with killing his stepfather by giving him an atomic wedgie, that caused the victim to suffocate on his own underwear. He pleaded guilty on Monday to first-degree manslaughter.

Brad Lee Davis was charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Denver St. Clair in a drunken family fight at a residence just east of Oklahoma City, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office said in an arrest affidavit obtained on Wednesday.

Police arrested Davis on Tuesday. The affidavit said he ‘grabbed St. Clair’s underwear and gave him an atomic wedgie. Davis allegedly pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair’s underwear over his head and around his neck.’

No sentencing date mentioned.
