YouTube - Hum * Stars On August 2, 2009 I went up to Manchester, New Hampshire with my brother Scott and his wife Leslie to see the Las Angeles group "Tool" perform at the Verizon Center. We stopped in Portsmouth, New Hampshire to walk around and have some lunch down by the Piscataqua river. One of the songs we heard on the car radio was this song "Stars" by the band "Hum" (click the YouTube link to hear this song.) In this song there is a memorable line "She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she's out back counting stars."

Well, she missed the Mars train. I read today that the wife of the new Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, "Miyuki" claimed that she was abducted by aliens twenty years ago while asleep as her soul travelled to Venus aboard a triangle shaped ship. "Miyuki" said that the planet Venus is quite green and very beautiful. I wonder what kind of plants can withstand the temperatures on Venus which are reportedly around 800 degrees. Maybe Venus has green molten rocks.

At least "Miyuki" didn't miss her spaceship like the girl in the "Stars" song who missed her train to Mars. It pays to be on time if you're going to travel to other planets.
