Day 1a: What is a man made moon

I first heard the term ‘man made moon’' in an archival news broadcast from1957.  The authoritative voice of the news cast cracked when referring to the first artificial Satellite to orbit the earth. Launched by the Russians, Americans were terrified of  the communist eye in the sky, the first  “man made moon”. The term stuck in my head, and when it came time to name my band, the choice was obvious. It's fun to say, and is for the most part meaningless, yet seems to be interpreted in unique and unusual ways. Is that not what life is about --for the most part meaningless, yet interpreted in dazzlingly unique and unusual ways. In conclusion, ‘dazzlingly’ is a beautiful word that I don't use often enough. I intend to rectify this.

End of transmission
