as something of a pink floyd fan through my classic rock infused youth, this triggered heading down a bit of a rabbit hole. accompanied by a listen to “the dark side of the moon”, which i hadnt’ sat down to listen to in years.
the rabbit hole also included this random atlantic article about this little gem, “moonhead” played in the BBC studios for the apollo moon landing. this was upstaged by “space oddity”, which yeah, that’s fair.
we knew this day was coming. i just didn’t really expect for the first cut at this to be so hamfisted. still, this is only going to get better.
interesting to get a linguist’s take on things here. though talking to a someone who’s a programmatic linguist about this stuff kind of seems of like turtles all the way down.
