For the bi-weekly mix tape club (see Gonzo and HaleyJane for other entries in this club). The theme for this round was space. That meant songs with space references in the title, mentions of space int he song, on a general spacy feel. After I put the mix together, I realized that it reminded me of one of those Ray Bradbury short stories about space, so I added an insert explaining the "story" of these songs. I couldn't upload the insert but it was all text. The intro read:

The Gibbous Moon: A Space Opera in Three Acts with Intermissions - In which our hero, a space-age weatherman, leaves the despair of his home planet to discover the atmosphere of space and find love in the outer reaches of intergalactica.
