It Goes WHOOOSH When It Starts...
Get Back To 8-bit // 1400-1500 19.11.09
news balls: you gotta shoot 'em in the head!
Coming to you live at the time and on perpetual loop for the remainder of humanity's existence, this is GET BACK TO 8-BIT. And now the news links for the space-tastic episode of 19/11/09.
When the government, any government for that matter, is open to the idea of intergalactic communication but still won't let Black people vote, you've got problems. In all probability, Earth would have tried to make Mars our bitch. I think if at the time there might have been a Thomas Jefferson of Martian slaves all he would have been interested in is where upon their hard carapace and multi-tongued bodies could he stick his junk into:
"Yeah, sure we found water on the Moon." says pimp-supreme NASA scientist, then "Now who wants a martini?":
Show Pluto some love and reclaim it as one of our solar system's planets, even if it is smaller than Saturn's moon Titan, about the same size as its own moon Charon and is made mostly of ice. It's the principal, dammit!
I bet at that altitude the reception is awesome. But if you drop the remote you're kinda boned:
SPECIAL MAXI BONUS!
Please join us at the alterna-fest, Rockaburley, this coming Friday the 27th of November at the Classic Grand. I can't guarantee the girls will look like the ones in Jabba's palace, but I can guarantee they won't look like Jabba. It is sufficiently in line with enough retro goodness to warrant a Get Back To 8-bit mentie, so stop on by for bearded lady cake goodness:

get ready for blast off, full-helmeteers!
Transmitting from an outer limb of the Milky Way Galaxy, Get Back To 8-bit is starting two weeks of issues concerning space and time. Join myself and Mr Jo as we discuss Martian communication and the governments that warned us about it, sending chairs into space for the sake of television sales, blowing up the Moon for Mr Frosty fodder and deciding the ultimate fate of Pluto 332 light minutes away from it. In addition, there'll be theme-specific music and all sorts of Glasgow happenings on the deeply alternative style. It's all going down tomorrow on subcity.org at 14:00. Download later if you miss it!

i love future-hitler and future-hitler loves me!
For the attention of all you gentle sods, Get Back To 8-bit, broadcast on the 19th November will start two weeks of songs concerning space and time. Unlike other fictional characters prominent in our media, I choose not to abuse such powers in the open forum for my own gratification. I gratify myself in private. Please join me and my guest chat-monger for the week, or download later on in the day, you strange person.
