ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Here's HR Giger's Alien, deep in thought after a hard day on the set, from a Retronaut set of "Behind the scenes of ‘Alien’ movies."
Behind the scenes of ‘Alien’ movies
“Is” pooped? Or “has” pooped?
If unicorns poop rainbows, do xenomorphs poop reality television?
Perhaps. Reality TV is shit from SOMEWHERE.
So THAT’S where the Kardashians came from!
So I guess Kanye is like Ripley in that respect.
Because Bruce Jenner is like Kane (John Hurt) in that habitat.
It would certainly explain the acidic content.
I was out pooping the dog earlier; I guess it makes sense that aliens need pooping too.

The one you ate ?
I know better than to try and out-poop him.
It never occurred to me before, but none of the movies showed any alien scat…. which would have been useful for tracking the damn things.
Maybe the poop was molecular acid as well, so it just left these holes in the floor.
Dietrich: Looks like some sort of secreted resin.
Hicks: Yeah, but secreted from what?
Looks like he’s texting, actually.
How good does the iPhone touchscreen work with the second set of teeth?
Oh, sweetum wittle Alien just wants a back rub, yes he does, yes he does.
It might be even more awesome to have Alien sitting on a toilet…
Apparently Charlize Theron was so inspired after Prometheus.
Well, you see that tube…?
“She LAUGHED in my face. Oh, god – WHY did I go with flowers and the sonnet and slaughtering her fellow crew members on the first date, WHY ? I’m such an IDIOT !!!”
MAN that would suck to have to wear that on set 12 hours a day! I used to work as a Set Dec and the people in crazy makeup and prosthetics always got my sympathy.
He actually could only wear the suit for 15-20 minutes at a time.
Well, he’s wasting ‘em!
Bolaji Badejo! One of the classic Men in Suits.
The alien’s probably sad and crying. Nobody loves him on the Nostromo (except Ash maybe).
What are you talking about, “except Ash maybe”?
Full-fledged, full-frontal bromance, dude! In their quirky, particular ways.
Someone needs to edit this and the Sad Keanu pic together!
Has anybody here ever considered that the so-called “space jockey” was actually caught off-guard while taking a high-tech dump?
Dunno, maybe à la John Travolta in Pulp Fiction?
So what *is* that stuff coming out of his butt? I’m guessing it’s wires they use to control some kind of special effects stuff in his suit?
Since the full costume features a tail that can coil and uncoil, my guess is that we’re seeing the internal structure of the tail (some kind of cable and/or air hose system), minus the alien skin.
Or maybe it’s a cable that he can hang from in order to jump down from the ceiling and such?
“Those British film crews do like their official tea breaks, I think I’ll make Union of my own….”
Sad alien is sad.
“Men in Suits,” a friend’s upcoming DVD release may shed some light on why so sad: http://wyrdstuff.com/?page_id=1370 The filmmkers made their kickstarter goal and are apparently pressing DVDs right now: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1443196324/men-in-suits-0
I have seen this picture before, but the whole spread is awesome. Thanks.
The Xenomorph. In repose.
Probably thinking about the one that got away.
