Not enough scary clowns in your life this Halloween? Check out this collection of creepy clown portraits.
Tin foil fans reached a mouth-foaming crescendo after a well-known UFOlogist died under mysterious circumstances during an investigation into "black magic" practiced by "elites." He was appearing as a speaker at a convention in Poland when they found his body, sitting on a couch in his hotel room, supposedly with "black liquid" coming from his mouth. Just days before, he had told his mother that he was in trouble, and she should investigate if anything happened to him. Shades of X-Files ...
A chunk of metal was discovered in Romania in the 1970s that turned out to be 90% aluminum. Romanian officials claimed it was 25,000 years old. The story only just broke for the rest of the world, and now some internet folk are saying it's proof we were visited by aliens.
Did I freak you out too much today? I'm sorry, dear reader. Consider getting an emotional support duck to help you get through this time of apprehension.

Drag queens and aluminum

You have two choices for entertainment.
Spring is springing and summer is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate than a Psycho Beach Party with The Dolls? Our fair city's premier drag troupe will send up old-school beach movies and Hitchcock thrillers in their latest romp. The madness begins March 18 and continues through March 27 at the Albuquerque Little Theatre. Shows begin at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sundays. Call 242-4750 for reservations or go online at albuquerquelittletheatre.org. Tickets are $15.
Apparently, aluminum is useful for more than just wrapping around my head to keep interstellar beings from stealing my thoughts. The goons of the Aluminum Show will be playing with metal and entertaining you at Popejoy Hall on Friday and Saturday. Show times are 8 p.m. each night, with an additional 3 p.m. matinee on Saturday. Come see the aluminum snake and fly across the stage. Tickets range from $22 to $35 and are available at unmtickets.com.
