Hey folks, Teague here. Let me tell you about how cool we are. For one, Apollo 13 is one of our favorite movies, us here heathens and skeptics – and we’re not above spending two hours talking about how insane it is that we landed on the moon, so be prepared for that going into this episode.
Hell, we’re not above throwing a party in celebration of the anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon voyage, dressing up like mission control, and getting drunk on Tang Jello shots. I built a seven-foot tall Saturn V, underlit it with flashlights and let sublimating carbon dioxide (er, dry ice) pour down the sides.
Just for a party.
We’re apparently not even above making a god damned parody of Apollo 13, and becoming a part of Gene Kranz’s personal Thanksgiving tradition.
The MOON, people. This is what it does to us. The crew this week is sparse, in favor of having 100% space fags on the panel – just professional soothsayer Trey Stokes, prolific Apollo fanboy and Embry-Riddle alumnus Brian Finifter, and yours truly. We’re wee, but we love the shit out of space – and of this movie. Stop reading, and start downloading this commentary for Apollo 13.
