Apollo 11

A bit of fun to honor the achievements of Apollo 11, which landed mankind on the moon 40 years ago today: This mash-up of Stanley Kubrick and the Police is the handiwork of Doc Wertham, a Facebook friend of mine. …

Viaje a la Luna

And the genius of Georges Méliès and his 1902 dreamy masterpiece “Un Viaje a la Luna,” “A Trip to the Moon…”
