Show Notes for “Nostromo 2: Electric Alien Boogaloo”

For every show, the writer and director (or currently, the writer-director) provides notes to the cast on real or fictional world backstory, how to pronounce things, and frequently some of the references made in dialogue. This was the same for our latest live production, Nostromo 2: Electric Alien Boogaloo.

I love to sprinkle my work with sci-fi and other references, often based on my research for that particular script. Since this was both a comedy and being performed for a sci-fi convention audience, I felt free to put in as many references as I could. In fact, while it’s not in our broadcast/podcast recording, I did warn the audience not to try and take a drink of an adult beverage every time they heard a sci-fi reference lest they die of alcohol poisoning.

-Bjorn Munson, writer/director

Show Notes

(Title) Nostromo is the name of the cargo ship in Alien which is in turn named for a Joseph Conrad novel where the main character succumbs to greed and dies because of it.

(Title) Electric Alien Boogaloo comes from “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo” a rushed sequel to the 80s breakdancing film “Breakin'”

Basically, it’s a send up of every space opera story you know where a crew investigates a derelict spacecraft and mayhem ensues.

In addition to creating some brand new sound gear for live sound effects, we got to work with our first “special guest voice” as space opera veteran Gigi Edgley was a guest of the convention and graciously agreed to step up to the mic.
