Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

Video of the Day: I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)

This morning I woke up and checked Twitter as is my wont. A link to this song was right near the top. I hope you enjoy this delightful performance by the multi-talented Commander Chris Hadfield as much I did. The Wexford Gleeks and Barenaked Ladies are awesome, too. It sounds a bit glib, but the song really did bring a tear t'me eye.

Growing up, inspired by Star Trek and other shows, my best friend and I dreamed of becoming astronauts on the space shuttle and touching the sky. Cmdr Hadfield and his crew-mates really have. He also posts amazing photographs of terrestrial regions taken from the cupola of the ISS. If you're not following him on Twitter, you're definitely missing out.


  1. Unless of course you are following him on Google+, and then it would be Twitter users that are missing out. Watching a live hangout with him.

    1. So . . . yeah. I looked on his G+ "About" page and his son is updating his G+ from Cmdr Hadfield's Twitter feed. So his twitter followers are not missing as much you think. The G+ Hangout was sponsored by NASA, not Hadfield. It was very cool though. :)

  2. Pretty awesome! Oh, and I think your astronaut comment is interesting because I grew up wanting to design and build space ships. Almost made it a reality, but c'est la vie:)
