    Good Morning, Everyone!

    Wouldn’t that be something?

    I for one am glad for this.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(83) 11/7/2013 Thursday

    Unfortunately one of the forage teams was not too far away from Sheema and her Hairshirts. They have no idea what is happening. Soon they will in the hardest way possible.

    Wootietoot in the mean time has sensed through all of her children’s sense organs that something has changed. Even though they sleep under the earth or are working in the dark places they are all linked in some way, a kind of group mind. She is their queen. As a group they have a wider field of sensing beyond their bodies and individual tiny minds. Now that she has direct connexion to them she can feel it too and direct it in ways the xooloos could never have used it.

    At the escarpment Wizer senses something from the Other…intelligence, it is telling him that a mind field has reached out to where they are. He doesn’t know what a “mind field is.” But he knows it means danger!

    The book and the movie are so different.

    Anyone else remember that mini series from the 70s, Frankenstein: The true Story?
    It had Jane Seymour in it. Years later she talked about it in an interview. Her real name is Joyce Frankenburg. She said her grandfather changed the family name to Frankenburg from Frankenstein because he got tired of all the teasing.

    So we’re still stretching this thing out? Shouldn’t Oop read the book first so he will have some point of reference to “see how the book was brought to life as a movie”?

    Woops, I hope the Benders don’t read this and get any ideas. Anyone up for several more weeks of Oop reading the book, discussing it with Doc, then having them go to the movie version and discuss it also? lol

    On second thought, we better go back to 1931. Much more interesting.

    He should show Oop “Young Frankenstein” with Gene Wilder.

    In the first frame, it looks like Oop is about to eat the book.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Give me a break. Alley has been to the 20th and 21st centuries many times over the years. I’m sure he has heard of Frankenstein, for goodness sake!

    @BRI-NO-MITE!!

    I had a classmate in college whose surname was Frankenstein. She was as proud of her name and family heritage as anybody. Of course in college, the students are a whole lot more mature than in Junior High School, when I’m sure she got hazed a lot.

    Good morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley
    Oop. Doc is being a little overly generous in naming
    Frankenstein one of the most important literary books in
    history. In the birth and influence of science fiction and
    horror writings yes but most lists don’t even have Frankenstein on them. In a listing of top 19th century
    literary books, Huckleberry Finn, Emma, Moby Dick,
    Madame Bovary, and Great Expectatations are there
    but no Frankenstein. As a story it has endured, little read,
    but with themes, as with Dracula, of great influence.

    No one considers the subtitle : The New Prometheus. Few probably even knows what it means — except as a prequel to Aliens!
