meme of “We’ve GOT to get OFF this PLANET” by Captain Kirk.
Bit of Bowies “The Next Day” song “Dancing Out In Space.”
Cutting through the water, hand upon the ghost
to the city of solid iron to the kingdom of the most
send your friend away now, let him sail back home tonight
something like danding
something like a drowning dancing outer space
no one here can see you, dancing face to face
no one here can beat you, dancing in outer space
silent as mist and silhouette
girl you move like water you have stars upon your head
you’ve got my name and number you got to take …
