why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the…
Major love and gratitude to David J. Ruck for the opportunity to work with such amazing individuals. This is an astronomical benchmark for the project and an indicator of good things to come!
I initially became involved with IWBAA when they were in the midst of their Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign while in pre-production. I was a featured guest blogger on a simplified blog they had running at the time, and I cross-promoted the film via sagansense to draw attention to the film with exclusive photos of space shuttles/launches and other NASA-related photography by Larry Tanner.
Life intervened and I eventually re-connected with Director/Producer David J. Ruck through Facebook and expressed my passion for his project and my interest and dreams of what I envisioned it to become. We instantly connected, had a long conversation about the current perception of NASA amongst the public, the future of space exploration, dreams, our individual journeys, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, life, and by the end of our discussion, he sent me the film, I was (to no surprise) blown away, and now, I’m even more proud of what the film has become, accompanied with our sound director Sean Spillane’s music and Andrew, our producer, (who’s been the lead for music production on a little show you may know called The Walking Dead).
It’s been a tremendous and humble honor to be aboard this team and have my name associated with a film that’s now on the International Space Station upon the request of the astronaut crew.
We’ve been working with NASA, and continue to collaborate with other notables around the space exploration front in taking this film beyond low earth orbit, back down to Earth, and ultimately, to inspire the current and next generation of explorers to take humanity “onward to the edge.”
Although it may seem a bit indirect, I truly want to thank everyone (all 20,200+ of you) for your support and feedback. I have an embarrassing amount of mail in my inbox that I haven’t been able to respond to because of this project and life in general. I honestly, genuinely, love and appreciate all of you for sticking with me, providing constructive criticism when needed, keeping me honest to myself, and continually reminding me of what it is we’re all trying to do in the science community I’m so grateful to be apart.
More incredible things to come and I promise you all are going to love this film…but for now, I can say we’ve officially launched. I have much more planned in the reshaping and development of astronautfilm on Tumblr, along with other routes we’ll be taking with @AstronautMovie, Facebook, and the film’s website, so stay tuned!

The real world.
This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.
And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.
What a true gift! Australian artist Joel Rea creates cinematic paintings pulsing with the intensity of the wind and ocean waves.
Using brushes as thin as just a few hairs, the Australian artist spends hour upon hour meticulously developing his oil paintings until they are smooth, saturated and insanely detailed scenes of imaginative realities.
