A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius.

Thank you for reading.
"Classified as a historic monument in 1911, restored from 1993 to 1995 , the present chapel pinnacles where some of the newly created chimeras are from the film culture of American and Japanese animation.”
"In a 1987 issue of Starlog, Cameron personally addressed Aliens haters who wrote in to the magazine’s letters column. What commenced was a geek fiesta of minutiae quibbling that seems absolutely inconceivable nowadays, given the director’s bilion-dollar cachet and whatnot…”
"Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.
"Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow."
(Conceived and designed by Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof and directed by Luke Scott.
"When, at the end of Alien, Sigourney Weaver says, “This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off,” she’s not telling the whole truth. Because there’s another survivor, curled up with her in the hypersleep capsule. Jones (or Jonesey) the ginger tom.
"Jones serves multiple functions within the Alien storyline: 1) CATGUFFIN, a pretext for characters to go wandering off on their own. 2) CATPANION, an excuse for Ripley to express herself out loud when she’s otherwise alone. 3) CATSHOCK, a cheap shock tactic in which the cat jumps out unexpectedly. 4) CATSCALLION, a wild card; at the end of the film, the cat might yet be harbouring an alien.
"In short, one cannot overestimate the importance of Jones to Alien. This is his story.”
