David sleeping off a long night of boozing somewhere in Siberia in 1973. We drank cheap Riesling and beer (Peeva) with a bunch of soldiers we’d met the night before. They were friendly and inquisitive as to what life was like in the West. We asked them what they did in the army: they said they were in the construction unit. You can just make out the bleak Siberian landscape through the window. - Geoff MacCormack
The results are in, and I want to thank you all so much for helping me out with selecting names for Cinders. It means a lot, and I hope you’re going to be as happy as I am.
There is one character that I’ve taken some creative liberties on, but I love him so so much. Shout out to @roosterteethgirl for her help and support when creating these characters and building their personality. Love you, girl.
If you watch the film The Martian, you’ll see Hollywood explosions and special effects galore, but you’ll also see some serious science.
“The Martian has almost all of its technical details correct,” says Robert Zubrin, the head of The Mars Society, which advocates sending people to explore the planet. Zubrin, who has written nonfiction and fiction books about going to Mars, points out there have been many other accurate books written about missions to Mars. What makes The Martian special he says, is its simple man-versus-nature plot. “It’s about one person, one human mind, one human heart,” he says.
ALRIGHT, NEW PLAN. In order to drown out that complete and utter twat sending shit to people in our tag (and because I’m having a shit day), I propose that this week is Share Your Favorite Old Craig Videos Week! You’re not limited to one, share as many as you’d like! It’s our tag - let’s take it back from assholes and people theorizing about his replacement.
I’LL START. Youtube recommended me this old gem today and I just had to share it. A couple times in 2011, Geoff/Josh pretended to be drunk. I’m pretty sure this was the second time - there used to be other videos of it but I can’t find them. Certain bits are cut out in this one - before Geoff mentions the horse, Secretariat had come out - this clip shows that part!
It’s hilarious and Craig was really tickled by it both times Josh did it. It always makes me laugh.
