[Listen] Going off world today with this 1958 classic from Equivel.
This classic 1959 collection of ballads from the age of science looks to be getting a red vinyl re-release in January 2017.
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air….
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
– Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.”
John Gillespie Magee, Jr. – High Flight
Thanks to social media, I expect that “Internet Profile Cleanup Expert” will be a profitable profession going forward, especially for those young enough that have accounts in high school or younger.
