i spy a little satellite
for the mrs to take her right back to cape canaveral however many years ago today being bored and four and watching an unmanned probe launch. unmanned. and not right up close like on telly with explosions and and all that falling scaffolding stuff and that madly slow lift off that you can't believe will ever get anything anywhere but on some bleechers bloomin miles away safe and sound and dull as hell. i mean if it ain't got spacemen who cares ? (although it does like there might be a cake in there which would be good. space cake. mmmmmmm)
these should all be venus records i know but i got my planets mixed up so saturn'll have to do and it's as good an excuse as i could come up with to play some sun ra.
jonathan richman and the modern lovers - up in the sky sometime
sun ra - saturn
