Great Moments in Culture: Episode #293

One of my all-time favorite Sesame Street sketches is Cookie Moster as Alistair Cookie hosting Monsterpiece Theatre, proudly presenting his take on the most significant English language play of the 20th century - Samuel Beckett's existential tragicomedy, Waiting for Godot. May I present...

"Waiting for Elmo."

They seriously don't make television like this anymore. <3

After ages of it sitting unviewed on my server, I watched An Honest Liar this evening. It was inspirational, moving, and illuminating.

I may have to finally read Sagan's Demon-Haunted World next.

I've watched both in the last 24 hours and I think that Alien and Jaws deserve recognition as co-best horror movies of all time. Other movies may do some aspects of horror better than them but ultimately they're just the two best movies to watch that I would call horror movies and I find it impossible to decide between them.

Just bought a ticket to see Alien (1979) during my next Rochester trip. I've seen it once and don't remember much, but Wiki says it "was ranked by the American Film Institute as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre, and as the thirty-third greatest film of all time by Empire magazine."

One of those movies that'll be great to see on the big screen.

OMG I was crushed to realize that when I randomly looked at the schedule for the local independent theater that I'd missed Alien by a week. Have ****ing fun.

Alien is the pinnacle of close encounter films due to it being literally filmed on a small spaceship filled with air ducts and nooks and crannies. I love the film and I hope you realize how amazing it is.

I wasn't even aware it was a thing. I'll remain dubious until I hear more but I am cautiously intrigued.

But in Googling it I did find that there is a new book/cash grab called "The Fall of Gondolin", which is one of the top 5 subjects in LOTR I have always wanted to be discussed in great depth so I'm actually more stoked for that. Mother****ing Gondolin, the greatest city in all of Middle-Earth's history. I'm hard now.
