So how was yesterday?
No, I thought not.
Well, to help you feel even more depressed about your life, here’s an interview with an astronaut … not just any astronaut, but the charismatic bugger who decided to record Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ aboard the international space station.
I have to admit, I have a bit of a man-crush on Chris Hadfield – the astronaut in question.
Apart from single-handedly proving not all Canadians are beige [though Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford, is also doing a good job at that], he is intelligent, charming and yet down to earth.
I’ll be posting a few things about him in the next few weeks, but I’d like to start off with this – an interview he gave to Classic Rock Magazine [yes, I buy it, deal with it] which is a gentle introduction into his wonderfulness, especially when he explains how he came to record the Bowie hit in the first place.
Try not to feel too sad after you’ve read it … when you look up and realise you are sitting in a beige cubicle, inside a faceless office where you make ads no one watches for a living.
I think I could have a second career as a councillor, what do you reckon?
