Rocket Man

Or perhaps more specifically in my case, Rocket Girl, maybe? Yes, its kink time, friends, one it seems that isnt just mine.

Now I can show my age lol. Back in the 60’s, especially once the Apollo missions were planning for, and then going to the moon, we got TV coverage of everything. Well, alright, maybe not quite non stop coverage of the flight, but you get my drift? But the one thing that took my attention as a child was the Astronaut suit, and helmet, and thinking how much fun it would be to wear one of those. But back then, space flight was a ‘mans thing’ and I doubt designing one for a woman was a thought they never even considered. I dont know if they made replica ones for children, I dont remember seeing any, but suspect they did. But lets face it, they would have been aimed at boys anyway!

No thought of course went into just how heavy the real things must have been to wear though!

What probably appealed to me more, was the cartoon versions, with the girl in the cute, sexy space outfit, and sometimes a helmet, sometimes not. So in that sense,  ‘real life’ TV series like Space 1999 and UFO appealed to me more, female space pilots in cute craft, not great big rockets! But a non scientifically minded Brit was never going to become an astr0naut for real, back then, that was for sure. I believe Captain Scarlett also had female pilots long before they became reality?

I know that ‘if you have the money’ space travel for the public isnt that far off, even if it is only a few orbits of Earth, and nothing more. But no, I havent got the money, and youth has passed me by, so I cant see me being amongst them. Though to be honest, unless they provide spacesuits for you to wear, I probably wouldnt find it that much fun anyway! Cute little solo flight spacecraft, and ray guns still seem a fair way off though lol! Maybe I just never grew too old for dressing up ? 😉

Right, the video, and yes, I’m going to show stage my current favourite unknown artist, Gary Simmons. You might have guessed the song from the title, its that Elton John classic. Why this guy isnt a major star, I just dont know.

  1. Well, there may be chances to dress up yet. For all we know, the height of space travel might be frumpy second-hand clothes and blue boxes, anyway.

  2. Think that just involves a day trip to Cardiff lol! And I’ve heard its a pretty select band that get the chance to travel in that blue box anyway!
    Mind, if it means a meeting with the Cybermen… 😉
