I HAVE NO LIFE LA LA LA LA

I was reading about the Hubble Space Telescope last night.

Then Taylor Swift came on shuffle.

And then this happened this afternoon.

I Knew You Were Hubble (sung to Taylor Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble)
Once upon a time in 1990
We sent you into space to show us what we couldn’t see
From here on earth, from here on earth, from here on earth
At first there was a snag: your mirror was misplaced
But with several quick repairs we saw the galaxies you faced
With clarity, with clarity, with clarity

And your first images had us all in awe
When we realized all the beauty that you saw

‘Cause I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Of the vast cosmos, oh
Showed us new vistas with some shutter clicks
Space so diverse, oh
I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Of the vast cosmos, oh
Showed us new vistas with some shutter clicks
Now we’re picturing our universe
Oh, oh, Hubble, Hubble, Hubble
Oh, oh, Hubble, Hubble, Hubble

Nebulae alive with purples, reds, and greens
Our wonder begs for more, and you give us the means
To satisfy these needs, to satisfy these needs, to satisfy these needs
And I guess you’re booked up with professionals’ requests
But some of those demands end up resulting in your best
Photography, photography, photography

Like the time you stared into one part of space
And your resulting Deep Field put us humans in our place, yeah!

I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Of the vast cosmos, oh
Showed us new vistas with some shutter clicks
Space so diverse, oh
I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Of the vast cosmos, oh
Showed us new vistas with some shutter clicks
Now we’re picturing our universe
Oh, oh, Hubble, Hubble, Hubble
Oh, oh, Hubble, Hubble, Hubble

And after 20 years in 2010
You’re still doing your job, and well, by bringing awe to all of man, yeah

I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Of the vast cosmos, oh
Showed us new vistas with some shutter clicks
Space so diverse, oh
I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Of the vast cosmos, oh
Showed us new vistas with some shutter clicks
Now we’re picturing our universe
Oh, oh, Hubble, Hubble, Hubble
Oh, oh, Hubble, Hubble, Hubble

I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Hubble, Hubble, Hubble
I knew you were Hubble when you took pics
Hubble, Hubble, Hubble

Can you blame me, though? I mean seriously. How many things rhyme with “Hubble”?

Blog 1,434: yeah, best New Year’s resolution EVER.

This “new song a day” thing is really probably the best resolution I’ve ever made. Why? Because when you actively seek out a new song everyday, you’re bound to stumble across awesome stuff like this:

When they drop into Viva La Vida at 3:44, I think my heart stopped. The subsequent singing didn’t help.

 

Oh, and here’s something to satisfy everyone’s English geekery:

Yay.

 

Edit: and you know what song sounds freakishly cool played backwards? Cut Copy’s Lights and Music. Just FYI.

 

Today’s song: Rain by Mika (yeah, I had to)
