Just read it--good article. Neo-gothic sums it up, though unlike the writer, I wasn't "frustrated" by the characters in In Arcadia Ego dying at the end. There's that inevitability for so many characters in MM, but in this case, made the story that much more poignant. Thin White Line was a Morgan and Wong episode, and I usually liked theirs the most, but I just don't remember it, but it HAS been 25 years, right?🤔
I remember In Arcadia Ego as a favorite. It was done thoughtfully and artfully. The Thin White Line I'll have to refresh my recollection about. Do look forward to reading the article. Thanks for posting, Old Man.
But not many writers think about design of newspaper. I saw old fashioned newspapers in shell in the store which buyers did not want to buy. So sometimes better to use newspaper template here for making your work more attractive to other people. Layout can also convey meaning in much the same way colour, imagery and typography can.
Snow Files of the Week: "Origins / Base Camp", from "The X-Files", episode "Firewalker" (1994).
Scientist Dr. Pierce monitors the transmission of the research robot "Firewalker", which is supposed to document volcanic activities in Mount Avalon. During the transmission, Dr. Pierce discovers the corpse of the research director Erickson in the images. And a shadow that appears to be moving there, which, due to the high temperatures, would be fatal to any living being, before the robot's camera is destroyed. Mulder and Scully are put on the case, and Mulder soon discovers that the scientists have apparently found an organism in the depths of Mount Avalon.
Mark weaves the title theme into the track "Origins", while "Base Camp" is a spherical piece of music reminiscent of the 80s. Both tracks come from the fourth set by La-La Land Records, which is limited to 2,000 copies.
