Hey there, everyone!

The new Alien movie is in theaters! Oh man! I’m so mad excited.

(I’m also slowly learning that not all people are huge Alien fans? I keep trying to talk to other K folks about this and nobody seems to care except DJ Horse, who graduated, no longer works here, and therefore no longer counts. It’s been sadly eye-opening. Anyway! I’m jazzed.)

In a loose effort to celebrate, we had a tiny themed set near the middle of the show: one song from the original Alien soundtrack, one from Prometheus, and then two others written by Jed Kurzel, who scored the upcoming film. Dread Central recently interviewed Kurzel about his Alien: Covenant work--in it, he talks about blending synthetic and natural sounds and the lessons he learned from scoring The Babadook. It’s kind of neat. Here’s a link.

On a less spooky note, here’s a nice video of Jonsi and Alex (of Riceboy Sleeps) making a raw strawberry pie. It’s the purest thing I’ve ever seen.  

Until next week,
