Another Denver Nugget for X-mas?

I just listened to the current
'Future Fossils' podcast

where Michael Garfield starts off the podcast saying that he is waiting at the Denver airport for his partner and her parents to show up.
I had written a post about the Denver Nuggets basketball team on Christmas Eve -

But even more strangely I had written a post about the John Denver song 'Take Me Home Country Roads' and the movie 'Logan Lucky'.
Logan Lucky: Mountain Mamma, Take Me "Home" Country Roads?
When I saw the character of Sylvia Harrison in 'Logan Lucky' played by Katherine Waterston the face looked familiar, but I couldn't place where I had seen it before.

Of course, now I know she played Daniels in the 'Alien: Covenant' movie.
I'm not a big Alien fan, but how I forgot this until now when hearing the 'Future Fossil' podcast is beyond me.
Alien: Covenant = "Space Lucifer"
I also forgot that the song John Denver sung 'Take Me Home Country Roads' also played a big part in that movie, too.
Katherine also plays Virginia in 'Queen of Earth' opposite Elisabeth Moss who plays a character named Catherine in that movie.
Katherine's sister is named Elisabeth Waterston and turned 40 this year, which kind of links to everything Chris Knowles at 'The Secret Sun' blog has been writing about this year as far as the name Elizabeth/Elisabeth, the Siren, and years ending in seven and anniversaries taking place this year goes.
They Call It "the Never-Ending Ritual" for a Reason
Sam Waterston in the movie 'Capricorn One' made in 1977
And while on the subject of anniversaries, Katherine's father Sam Waterston was in a movie that I loved, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, 'Capricorn One'.
Ha, as if something like the Capricorn One scenario could ever really happen, right?-)
It was an interesting podcast at the 'Future Fossils' site, but if you can't even see what is hidden around you in the present and learn from the hidden past, then looking to the future isn't going to help you much either, I think.
Maybe a thought to leave for future generations?-)
And if you think 'Alien: Covenant' was crap, then maybe you should watch it again through fresh eyes?
It may not be a classic, but it's no dud either.

  1. "Take me home, country roads" also made an appearance on the latest Kingsman movie. It's what Merlin sings to attract attention after he steps on a landmine and knows that if he takes his foot out, it will blow up, so he sacrifices himself to take the guards out.

    That song sure seems to be getting a lot of movie love lately.
