Alien Ontography

@betajames and @sophist_monster tweet the finer points of Alien. Those finer points all turn out to be objects, which are crucial to the film and strange within it. What follows is a brief ontography of the film. Of ontography Ian Bogost writes,
The simplest approach to such recording [of objects] is the list, a group of items loosely joined not by logic or power but by the gentle knot of the comma. (38, Alien Phenomenology)
I used Storify to collate the tweets. Enjoy!
