    Yet another one I don’t get :/

    Is Cat asking if Orion-influenced music counts as “world music?” Or is he asking if the colonies on Mars have world music?

    Unrelated to the cartoon: I always type “cat and girl” into Google and click I’m Feeling Lucky to get here (I used to have to type Donation Derby because the homepage wasn’t listed on Google for some reason). However, I find myself always typing Cat and Goril instead. Thought I would throw this out there and see if I was the only one.

    What you gonna do when you feel your lady rollin’
    How you gonna feel when you see your lady strollin’
    On the deck of the starship
    With her head hooked into Andromeda
    C’mon Hijack
    Gotta get back and ahead to the things that matter

    Saturn uses the Katamari theme as it’s world music. Pluto has the Mario underworld theme, while Mars is just the first seven notes of the overworld theme played over and over.

    In light of the extra panel at the end, I’m not sure this is post-colonialist so much as pre-colonialist.

    And what ever happened to Gustav Holst?

    My initial interpretation of world music was similar to ethnic tribal music that is called world music in america because its not western. I wonder what music stylings are appealing in space vaccuums with no sound.

    Sorry, no spaceship we’ve already moved on to the post-science paradigm.

    “This is important–this means something!” When our real spaceships start moving toward Orion’s Belt, I just hope they remember to take enough oxygen and personal lubricant.

    im not real sure what “world music” even is…
    i always associate it with african tribal music. god awful tribal music. i mean that as non-racistly as possible. because all tribal music is terible (IMHO so disagree all you want)

    Listen online to village900 from Victoria BC Canada. Maybe “World Music” will become more clear.

    When I think of world music, I think of middle aged white people with gourds. Ew.

    Look at the constellation Orion. The belt forms the outer edge of a beak, the head and hand form two beady eyes, the sword hilt forms a waddle, and a small group of stars above the head and hand form a crest.

    Orion forms the basis of a new constellation I like to call “Plucky the Space Chicken.”

    May he always watch over us.
