    Apologies tendered. I'm not going to spoiler the old Alien stuff, though. If you haven't seen that shit then it's your own fault.

    Well thanks Cogs.
    Spoiler:

    Glad you decided to just blurt all that shit out because I should apparently know it already.

    I watched Alien for the first time in years the other day and one scene surprised me.
    Spoiler:

    Was this scene edited out in other versions or something? Because I don't remember it at all and it creeped me out more than a little.

    Yeah, the Xenomorphs were designed by H.R. Giger. According to legend, Freud once refused to give an opinion on his work because he didn't know where to start.

    But! It wasn't actually Lambert you see there - it's Brett's legs getting molested, edited in with shots of Lambert screaming. Apparently Lambert's actress filmed her death as a heart attack while running away. I think the implied rape was more of an afterthought than anything else - some people (weirdly) even think the naked blood drippy leg was Brett's, severed. :/

    My favorite Giger is probably the sculpture of the Luger loaded with mutant fetus bullets.
    Heh that sounds like a 40k weapon.

    Yeah but it still fucks shit up. It shouldn't be worth any less as a bio-weapon than a slightly more vertical xenomorph. Stick one in a crocodile or something and see what happens.

    Anyway Resurrection blows goats, that's why anything happens in that movie.

    Different Xenomorphs based on hosts always reminds me of the action figure line and how quickly that train of thought can get out of hand.

    Man, and after I added some qualifiers and checked Freud's death date to make sure it wouldn't be misread as an intended historical anecdote, too...

    I don't even own any Giger books, but c'mon. I still consider him one of the most evocative visual artists of the 20th century.

    To me, his art is about the underlying horror of materialism, of being trapped in a physical body whose insides are pitch-black (visible light only penetrates a short distance beyond the skin after all), with hydraulic tubing of various kinds running through it, and full of biological urges and drives. There's not much decay symbolism is his work, which I find interesting; it's more about the dark side of life and growth and fecundity itself. Take this (NSFW-ish) one, that's not too far off from what we'd look like during sex if we didn't have any skin, and all those structures are still there even if we can't see them. To put it another way, you know how skeletons are always scary? Well, you've got one inside of you right now... [/Shyamalan]

    gimme that cock art

    It's more "I'm scared of dat biomechanical cock/intestine art because body horror arglebargle", but sure.

    I should note that although I find Giger's art fascinating, I can't really say I enjoy it in any usual sense, which is why I don't own anything by him. That kind of undercuts my argument to Local H Jay, I guess...
