“Happy Little Xenomorph On Jello” copyright 2016 00individual TLL
May 25, 1979 in the U.S. and September in the U.K., Ridley Scott’s movie “ALIEN” closed out the ’70s decade with a horrifying, yet seductively thrilling adventure – not since “The Exorcist” had 00individual experienced a movie as a drug.
Both were actually film-making at its absolute finest wherein physiological and psychological altered-states are experienced – that for their time, and now, were mind-blowing experiences.
A week or two prior to the ALIEN’s U.S. release, 00individual was able to acquire a VIP showing of the 20th Century Fox movie at a small screening theater in the main M.G.M. Culver City studios lot for families of employees – 00individual’s Dad was a Cine-Technician.
ALIEN’s opening scene’s Point Of View walk down a short corridor to the sleep pods immediately draws one into the ship’s close quarters, making one seem to be part of the crew – 00individual knew there was no escape, he was in for a heart-pounding adrenaline-rush ride.
Aware of H.R. Giger’s art, 00individual shunned any advance knowledge of the ALIEN creature’s design so as not to spoil the shared sight of the beast. Back in ’79 it was much easier to keep secrets as there was no internet, only radio, TV, newspapers, and magazines. One could self-censor one’s data intake as media was generally sought out – not like current force-fed overkill – whether self-censored or not.
Today Giger’s style is everywhere and influenced an entire generation of artists, 00individual included – see above and below.
That said, Happy Little Xenomorph On Jello presents these

A VERY SCARY TRUE SOCIAL MEDIA TALE!
Heads Up to all Bloggers, Writers, Journalists, and Anyone who uses the internet to
exercise their right to Freedom of Speech!
BEWARE YOU MAY BE NEXT!
WordPress has a “Publicize” feature that whenever any new entry is posted it automatically posts in any other of your social media portals that you want. 00individual was never into Facebook but since it was free and easy additional “internet presence” he established a FB account and never looked back knowing that whatever was posted on his main wordpress site would post there also.
Ever so often he would check out the FB “clone”, to see what images were chosen for each post and then log out.
A few days ago 00individual checked up and saw that there was a post/entry missing – this was strange as it had never happened before, maybe it had, as weeks could go by before checking in, but this time it was missing for sure.
The October 9th post, “Make the Sixties Great Again!” did not “publicize” in “00individual’s History of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll” Facebook account. However unlikely, 00individual gave an initial benefit-of-doubt to a glitch – until attempts to manually re-post directly into FB completely failed!
In a past post, Face Book chose to feature the only real nude photo out of 00individual’s “Top 23 Sexy Album Covers“, – so it couldn’t be because of the Malibutique Mermaid.
The only reason has to be from the last paragraph. Well, Exxxxcuuuuuuusssse Meeeeeeee! for predicting the extremely obvious! (A little classic ’70s Steve Martin to lighten the mood.)
Hell, no! He can use it as his own science experiment, a place to collect data, to test limits, to work from within, to infiltrate and discover the secret workings of the Illuminati, to become Master of all Space and Time.
Yeah, that’s what he’ll do!
