Monty Python reinvented.

Here's my take on the situation:

Apologies to Monty Python and NASA... but it's waaaay past time that the Galaxy Song had a makeover. Here's my offering.

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,



That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.



The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see



Are moving at a million miles a day



In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.



Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.



It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.


We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,



And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

Damn HTML! Try again now, stars, it should be working...

Anyway, where was I? Ah, yes.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz



As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.



So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,



AND PRAY THAT THERE'S INTELLIGENT LIFE SOMEWHERE OUT IN SPACE,




BECAUSE THERE'S BUGGER ALL DOWN HERE ON EARTH.

I don't know if I understand this little project, but The Galaxy Song is one of my favorite Python moments.

It's a very simple concept I'm afraid to say - nothing very artistic or inspired. I thought it would be fun to illustrate the songs with appropriate pics, as I'm currently bored and sleepless.

It's cool. There was something very similar in B&C regarding Radiohead songs.

I like your taste in Python, though.

Yes, much better than The Fragile.

Though none of the songs rival The Galaxy Song, which sally has created this wonderful thread about

LOL! Useless people, not appreciating my beautiful Python space thread!

Well, don't then. Simple.

You're just like my cantankerous fiance, who was equally unimpressed.

I enjoyed it anyway. Stuff all y'all!
Now go away.
