Help me identify the names of these three movies.

Please help me find the names of three vaguely recalled movies from my past: a teen flick from the 80s, a dubbed (possibly Italian) horror film from the 70s, and a scifi adventure from the 60s (maybe)? [more inside]

What was this scifi comic from the 80s?

I was amazed how quickly I got a similar question I answered last week, so here goes another one, as I delve the origins of my subconscious... I am looking for a comic in book form/graphic novel that would have been around in (probably) 1982. It was a similar style to the Heavy Metal comics I guess. It featured a computer called Rose and a huge weird kind of evil organ (as in the kind you get in a church!). That's about it. If anyone gets this I will be suitably impressed... thanks MeFites.

name this sci-fi short story from the 80s

Trying to remember a sci-fi short story - I used to read Nebula Award collections when I was a kid and this one was in one years collection, but I am pretty sure it did not win. I've been trying to figure out what it was for years now. I'll tell you what I remember from it inside here... [more inside]
