Didn't think about this until just now, but today would have been a good day for the original Alien score with Stout's artwork as originally intended... now I'm disappointed that didn't happen :?

I bid on a Shaw on eBay and got promptly outbid...which is fine with me because the seller changed the entire thing to a listing for an Eng Alien print. Reported that fudge.

Anyone know if any of these prints at all are going to be at the Alamo screenings? I don't know how'd they'd manage such a thing, but at least like big city ones?

Sounds like they only kept a small allotment of the prints for the pop up shop.

The Alien Day blog post says only crew patches and crew pins will be available at select Drafthouse locations.

It was very interesting. I was watching the stock numbers on the Shaw and at one point it jumped from 3 remaining, up to 12 remaining.

Perhaps they saw how fast it was going and added some more. Or the cart timer refreshed, but I would be shocked if 9 people all abandoned that thing.

I am shocked that multiple people paid 225 for an Alien LP with slime in the middle. Mind. Blown. :pint:

Like every other poster nerd who got swept up in this hype, I took a stab at grabbing a Shaw Facehugger....And like most poster nerds who got swept up in this hype, I whiffed. Congrats to all who scored.

Got out of the vinyl game a while ago (for the most part) and glad I did. But the blog post on Mondo's site about the guy who did each one of these sounds like they'll hold up.
