50 years ago, men first set foot on our moon.
I want to celebrate this moment with R.E.M.s Man On The Moon

I know this song has little to do with the moon landing itself, but rather with Andy Kaufman. Since I saw the movie this year, I became fascinated with his persona and his talent.

I also figured out that Andy died on the very same day,. on which I saw the light of day. We do not just share the anniversaries. but for real the very same day! I always find these coincidences very inspiring.

I love how this turned out. Please enjoy. <3

Also big thanks to (fa:CrockAndRoll) for lending his unique voice to the project. I added so much to it! :3
