What other interests do you have outside AC besides work and typical day to day stuff?

Me? Not much else besides blasting on local, national and world news- hence more time spent here. I also like music of different styles and watching old tv reruns.

Your turn.

I seem to be the only single mom on here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my time raising my 7 yr old daughter. (I.E. helping with homework, teaching manners, supervising chores, hygiene, eating choices, play dates, trips to the park, etc. LOL!) I don't have a lot of free time, but my creative outlet is writing and my hobbies are reading and watching movies. I loved Prometheus and when I got wind of Alien: Covenant I was over the moon! Lately all my (very limited) spare time has been spent obsessing over the latest news about it, and reading (and occasionally posting) on this forum. It's been a fun ride and I can't wait to see the movie! Got a babysitter lined up and everything! :D

strella777 You can always put your writing on this forum if desired. It is a pretty receptive and supportive audience!

While waiting for the release of Alien: Covenant, I'm watching movies, tv shows, reading, listening and discovering music.

I rewatched the Alien movies, and back to Prometheus now, I found the extended scenes (very late, I know...). Saw the Behind the scenes documentary for Alien, very interesting information that I had no idea about before. I also want to read the movie novelizations, but think I'll wait until after AC.

I also like drawing, but I haven't done that lately.

Oh, and I'm 'infecting' my facebook and/or twitter pages with Alien news :D 

Since there's a lot of talk about instruments, what kind of music do you listen to/play? 

@Blackwinter-witch, congrats on your news!:) Are your works Alien related/inspired? (I feel it's a silly question from my part, haha) Was it long ago when you posted the excerpts? I'd like to have a look if it's ok.

Hello! IRaptus and I have been guitar gear talking via PM. Personally, I like a range of music from John Denver, Kingston Trio, Spinal Tap, All Mighy Wind Bands, Cash, DEVO, Dead Kennedys, to Exodus, Slayer and the defunct Skeletonbreath trio. For playing, it is all about old school metal/thrash. Blues is always great too!


ModeratorPraetorianApr-30-2017 7:01 PM

Yeah I have a Rock/Blues background. I play mostly things like Led Zeppelin, Clutch, Gary Moore, Janis Joplin, Alice Cooper, Rolling Stones, Rose Tattoo, AC/DC, Fooies, Beatles etc.  some heavier stuff like Pantera, Iron Maiden, Disturbed (not sound of Silence era - their old stuff!)  


MemberTrilobiteApr-30-2017 7:06 PM

I left out Sabbath, Zep, Moore. AC/DC, Beatles, Maiden, Old Cooper, Priest, Accept- I thought those would be assumed/given lol!

TY!! :D
As to your query, it's not a silly question, NP :)
I have ALIEN-driven works, in the realms of fanfiction which are works of love obviously, but I also have my own Original Realms as well, which are steadily being developed and maturing quite well.
One of those does echo ALIEN, but is not set in the ALIENverse.

Here's the link to the Topic/Thread where you can find my Excerpts:

And a Topic of mind where one can find some potentially helpful advice and tricks regarding writing.

When not at work (still checking this web site though), I work out, read (I just finished "Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep"), I collect Alien books, comics (Dark Horse of course), figures, browse this website etc.

Today I have been dedicated to post on as many topics as possible until I pass out from drinking too many beers. 

It's Shaw!

Thank you, Blackwinter! :) I feel it's going to be a great read.

I have to say, I'm familiar with only a few of the artists that were mentioned, I'll give them a listen. I'm mostly into alternative music, but I do enjoy the likes of Van Morrison, Eva Cassidy, Pink Floyd, and others.

And if all the music on the planet would have some saxophone in there, it would be perfect:D

What about tv shows, what do you watch? Or what genres?
