Every first Friday of each month, Saint Louis Science Center has an event called First Fridays – a pop culture / nerdy themed event, typically based (though not always), off of a show, movie, etc. Themed discussions focused on the science involved in the theme, related viewings of episodes or movies, and much more – typically all free – combined with fun, and also themed, food and drink options, make this a great, and educational, evening for the whole family.
This months theme: Stranger Things.
I think you guys know that I love Rocky Horror Picture Show, based on my post in August (or you can watch the video here), so when my alma mater announced the performance of Rocky Horror the first weekend in October, it immediately became priority on my schedule.
Planet C’adaei is in danger.
Five selected to leave and look for a new home. Their destination? Earth, but it might not be the blue paradise they were hoping for… in fact it’s a ruin, whole cities covered in sand and no sign of life other than what humans have left behind.
Olak, Aome, Acrok, Rirke and U’on have to solve the mystery of what happened to humanity and overcome darkness itself in this psychedelic action and drama packed space opera.

I’ve had a love for the Rocky Horror Picture Show for longer than I can recall. There’s something about that movie that brings me joy and makes me think of good times with friends: either watching the movie together, or seeing it performed at our local college and everyone dressing up and having a blast. This movie is special to me.
Four years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Barry Bostwick (aka Brad Majors), and he was an ABSOLUTELY funny and sweet guy.
So imagine my joy, and a bit of surprise, when I learned we were having a local RHPS event, held at Alexander’s at the Factort in Farmington, MO?
I hadn’t heard of this until it was recommended to me a few months ago by a friend. I was promised underwater horror, made by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy – which all sounded completely up my alley.
From June 6th until September, the St. Louis Science Center held an exhibit called “Alien Worlds and Androids” – all about science fiction and science facts. I was pretty excited to go, because come on.. This is a nerdy dream exhibit!
