100th Post and Bears in Space!

Like what High Schoolers say when they hit their long awaited graduations, "we did it!" But in all honesty, like said High Schoolers, we didn't do much. We just rambled on these internets thrice a day about shit we love...though I do feel a certain sense of pride hitting 100 posts. And we have a number of vibrant new contributors, I can't wait to see the numbers at the one anniversary and what the future has in store for your Penned Madness Heroes...

Speaking of future, check this shit out...

That, my dear right-clickers is what scientists call a Tardigrade or as Professor Layman puts it, a "Water Bear." These bears, like their land cousins of normal size earth, are godless creatures. Though they aren't the number one threat to our country, they spit into the eye of any big guy in the sky by being nigh indestructible... read more!

From http://www.dailymail.co.uk:
"They are the toughest animals on the planet - and now scientists have discovered that they can even survive in space...Some experts have compared their shape with jelly babies or moles but tardigrades they should not be judged by their 'cute' appearance. They are virtually indestructible - they will not die even if they are boiled, frozen, squeezed under pressure or desiccated... In fact, they can be completely dried out for years - and then spring back to life as if nothing had happened.
Now researchers have revealed that tardigrades - which usually measure no more than a millimetre in length and live in moss - have withstood the airless extremes of space. A year ago, 3,000 of them were dried out and fired into space to see if they could handle the cosmic rays, a near vacuum and freezing cold. Amazingly, after ten days, some of them did. They became the first animals to survive exposure in space without protection."

How fuckin' cool is that? This creature could be something we use to (and mind you this is a long term plan) start life on other planets. Couple of these bad chickens shot out into space could help us propagate life on other worlds...in like 4 billion years.

Well to accompany these timeless creatures, I have included some remixes of tracks that, like the Water Bear, will never die and even after lying dormant for so long...have risen anew.

These next three tracks are straight blog robs from Palms Out, but man oh man, are they good. Seriously this past Remix Sunday (127) has been like my favorite ever.








The Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever (Mojo Jones Remix)








Frank Sinatra - New York New York (Chew Fu Fix)








Manfred Mann - Blinded By The Light (DJ Donna Summer Boot)

And this one, I found on Dilated Choonz...
after I saw they linked us about the "Shove it" remix by Boy 8-Bit.







Creedence Clearwater Revival- “Fortunate Son” (Bird Peterson Remix)

Thanks for sticking around guys...

I'm just impressed you were able to post 'Blinded by the Light' without someone coming in and making a snarky 'wrapped up like a douche' joke -well I guess until now. Sorry for ruining it for you.

I'll only want a water bear if I can put a leash on it and name it Winston. A top had is optional, but preferred.

Love the Beatles remix.
