Ground Control to Top Space Man!
It’s a little bit of a trip… we re-wrote David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” in XKCD “Up-Goer Five” style using only the 1000 most common words in the English language. The film was sweded in an afternoon (like in “Be Kind Rewind”) and many of you will recognize moments in the video from the Flight of the Conchords excellent “Bowie’s in Space“… which I now need to go watch again.
Bonus Easter Egg: Audio clip of Sally Ride (who has a birthday today) commenting on how her space trip was like a Disneyland E-Ticket.
We went wayyyyy down the rabbit hole on this one!
