Weekend Open Thread: ‘Space Oddity’ Oddity from Space

This is great. You’ve probably seen it by now, but when the alien life forms unearth and decode the Orange Juice Blog archive, we want to make sure that they see it too.

That’s Commander Chris Hadfield of the International Space Station, releasing a music video to mark the day of his return home. Some of the best stuff is near the end, so stay in your seat until the landing.  And, please, don’t try this at home!

This is your Weekend Open Thread. Talk about this, or anything else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of taste and decorum.


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
