I don’t know why they made this record label.There was no real record*. I don’t know why they did a lot of the things they did in 1965. But this happened, and here it is.
*(I’m actually really disappointed that there was no record. It would have pleased me to know that somewhere out there existed an LP with John on guitar and the pair of them singing an ode to the Molly Brown. It would almost certainly have been terrible and excellent.)
Oh my god…I bet this was just cusses and laughing and farting
“Hey Gus, you want some of this sandwich?”
“Dammit John, we’re recording and - where the hell did you get that, you son of a bitch?”
“Heh heh heh heh heh”
“Goddamnit rookie, there’s crumbs everywhere! What’s that face you’re makin—oh, god, no —”
*TTHHHBBBBBBPPPPPTTT* “Heh heh heh heh heh”
“Dear Gus…Thank You for the Advice on the Underwear” is a beautiful ballad.
Since [landing after Apollo 12], I have not complained about the weather one single time. I’m glad there is weather. I’ve not complained about traffic. I’m glad there’s people around.
One of the things that I did when I got home, I went down to shopping centers, and I’d just go around there, get an ice cream cone or somethin’, and just watch the people go by, and think: “Boy, we’re lucky to be here. Why do people complain about the earth? We are living in the Garden of Eden.”
We’ve been passing around Chris Hadfield’s video for a few days now. I’ve watched it again and was still just as moved by it. I haven’t been this sad about a crew coming home from ISS for a long time. Hadfield has been the best ambassador the space program has had in years. He was perfect up there and wrote himself into the pantheon of astronaut legends with grace, wit and a charm that enthralled both adults and kids.
This laminated, two sided, card was issued to Freeman on 2 April 1964, a mere four months after he was selected in the Third Group of NASA astronaut candidates. The Sheriff has signed the front of the card in blue ink and Freeman has signed the reverse in black ink… ALSO included is his chromed Deputy Sheriff’s badge (note his name on the bottom).
I love this. Also, I’m sure that the astronauts were all made “honorary Texas Deputy Sheriffs,” and I’d love to see other examples of the ID and badge.
Also: “Complexion: Ruddy”? Why is this on a government document?
Maybe because it’s hard to tell from a black-and-white photograph? You’re right, it does sound strange.
