While I don't *hate* the US of A like some people nowadays I guess it's no secret (at least to some of the folks I talk with from time to time) that I'm not really planning ever to *live* there. You see - it's way too big for me and when you're not getting shot at by gangster rappers in one of the cities chances are that, instead, you're just getting lost in some redneck backwaters and about to be captured, tortured, cooked with bbq sauce and then eaten by a family of genetically degenerated radioactive cannibals.
That has got to be true, why else would there be so many documentaries about this topic?
Where was I? Ah, yes - I never want to live there, so usually I'm not envious of those who do so. Except, I have to admit, when there's the chance to see the worst movie in the world by Edward Wood in FUCKING COLOUR (!!!1!). read more »
Pretty cool, huh? The only thing even topping that, in the Tron dept. is that there will actually be a second movie:
When those men, 40 years ago, literally went where no man had gone before, I wasn't quite around, being born in 1971. But I grew up glued to picture books about the Space Race and the moonlanding.
To me, the exploration of space always was "the big adventure", surely later fuelling my geekdom for science fiction to no small degree.
Those guys did one amazing journey and they were watched by the whole world. That day they landed it wasn't just those men or the Americans that went to the moon, it was us humans who, for the first time, walked on another world.
