Engineers Are Not Space Jockeys?

I love that other people are as troubled as I am about this.

The comments section is the best, as most folks ignore the simple fact that Ridley Scott did, in fact, try to explain that the Space Jockey [non-humanoid-shaped] creature was actually just a humanoid in a [illogically-designed] space suit.  
That said, I still reject it.  
There's just no way.

500 Years Of Satan

In the 16th and 17th century, grisly paintings of the Evil One were intended literally, Barryte says.”They were meant to have a moral effect, which is why artists made him awful looking. Even if you were educated, you would wonder, ‘What if?’ No matter how skeptical one might be today, there was real faith underlying this imagery.”

The Enlightenment began to change that. As our conception of evil shifted, so did our personification of the devil. “He becomes more human, even romanticized, after the popular revolutions of the late 18th century, especially the French Revolution,” Barryte says. In the 19th century, the devil was often depicted as a “shrewd and wily dandy,” a Mephistophelean figure who would trick you out of your soul, not brutally tear it from you. “Fear is no longer his most effective tactic,” Barryte says. “And in the 20th century, he all but disappears except in advertisements.”

No idea why I was such a late-comer to this series.  Bean's favorite.
One of the many many cool things to which she introduced me.

John Carpenter Live

An amazing night last night watching Mr. Carpenter perform songs from his film career and his latest albums.  Absolutely mesmerizing and surreal being in an audience and feeling the music vibrate the seats.  Such a fun concert.

He ended the night with the below track.  Turn it up as loud as it can go without wrecking your speakers...then picture it louder and clearer.  Crazy.
