Original Compositions

Stuff I've written. Some of it's good (I hope), most of it's probably dreck. Oh well. You'll have to sort it out yourself once I get more posted :-)

There's definitely a surplus of space-themed material, and some very high-density nerdonium. But... there's just only so many ways to write "boy-being meets girl-being underneath a beautiful silvery moon". So let's do one about the moon for a change :-)

Lonely Photographer

A song about Voyager I, and specifically about the famous Pale Blue Dot photograph it took at Carl Sagan's request before shutting down its cameras. It is presently still in contact, but it's a LONG way from home.

Thanks (or apologies, if he doesn't like it) to Sam Hughes's short story Lonely Photographer for inspiration (and the title), and to XKCD for causing space-nerds to start swapping the sentimental links that led me there.

Prometheus Unbound

By Bill Roper, from the immortal Minus Ten and Counting. You probably can't find a copy of that (it's long out of print), but it has been posted to Youtube. There is also a fabulous version by Julia Ecklar on To Touch the Stars that is still easily available. And this one, of course.

Farewell, Mr. Armstrong. May your legend be remembered as long as Apollo's.
