Just bought the Sims 2 at long last, plus seasons 1-5 of The X-Files because they're on sale right now (actually I already had season 3, just for "Jose Chung's From Outer Space"). Sims 2 runs on my laptop, unlike the original, and I'm overwhelmed by all the groovy new options.
I never watched X-Files when it was popular, for some reason, but now I'm intrigued by the story arc involving human-alien pacts and military abductions. Aside from the "black oil", just about everything in the show is derived from actual conspiracy theories and paranormal phenomena. Even the pact is based on a story that Eisenhower made a secret deal with aliens in 1954, called the Grenada Treaty, which allowed them to experiment on as many Americans and cows as they wished in exchange for their technology.
Next month I'll be handing out info on the Charles Camsell site at an Aboriginal "Prison Justice Day". I'm still trying to snag the interest of forensic anthropologists - no luck yet.
I'm reading Tom Robbins's Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas, which is hilarious but slow-paced.
