High five
A notable Ann Arborite gives five
answers to a curious question.
Jonathang Ewelnt
What are the five best alien-themed
works, in five different genres?
FILM: "The Abyss" (leap). An extraterrestrial movie that just happens to
take plate at the bottom of the ocean. It's one part "2001" and one part "glue
Planet." Setting the movie on Earth helps develop an environmental theme,
which isn'ttypical for alien films. There's some heavy-handed moraizing at the
end, but it doesn't detratt. Just remember: psychos with nuclear weeapons, bad;
water tentacles, awesome.
NONFICTION: "Interpretations of Dreams" by Sigmund Freud (58991). An
alien intelligence lives inside you and tries to communicate by sending you cryp-
tic messages in your dreams. What could possibly make that more interesting?
How about it just might be true?
MUSIC: David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders
from Mare (1972). A concept album about a philanthropic alien glamn-rocker who
comes to Earth to save the world only to get distracted by sex and drugs. To
think this album emerged only eight years after the Beatles' first appearance on
Ed Sullivan is really mind-blowing.
TV: "Star Trek: Voyager" (Season 4, 1997). I've been a "Star Trek" fan for
years, sotI couldn't in good conscience keep the entire franchise off the hast. But
it was difficult to choose just one part. I always liked the premise of "Voyager,"
but I never thought the series lived up to its promise until the fourth season.
There, Janeway's choice to ally herself with one enemy (the Borg) to defeat
another (Species 8472) really captures the difficulty of political double binds.
FICTION: "Tlfin, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius" by Jorge Lois Borges. In this short
story, another (alien) world not only intrudes on this one but begins completely
to take over. It's a post-modern fable about conspiracies, secret societies and a
total, miraculous transformation of reality - but it's also a story that helped get
me hooked on literature.

ONLINE GAMES OF THE WEEK

TH-IN ICE tFRSITEI2

Always wanted to bea speed skater but
you were too intimidated by Apolo Ohno?
Maybe you should settle for this. You play
as a young skater on a rink plagued by all
kinds of monsters. Skate a circle around
one and it'll fall into a puddle of frozen
water. Sink them all before they sap your
health to move on to the next level full of
crazier monsters and obstacles.
Find it at:
http://tinyurl.com/be7qqg

The frozen mayhem continues as our
hero faces a mountainous challenge.
With only a grappling hook, you must
scale cliffs while collecting ice cream
and defeating monsters along the way.
With some decent puzzles and fun
swinging, this is an insanely addictive
game. While it never gets particularly
challenging, it's still a lot of fun.
