I’m thinking that if we all put our heads together, maybe we can convince the aliens to finally reveal themselves. It’s worth a try, anyway. I’m starting to doubt that we’re going to make it on our own.

Playlist after the jump.

Playlist:

Starfleet to Scout Ship Jimi Hendrix & Chas Chandler
From an alternate version of “Third Stone from the Sun.” Jimi sounds extraordinarily stoned, even by his lofty standards.

This Time Tomorrow The Kinks
File under “songs that Wes Anderson taught me.”

The Vanishing Spies Frank Black
From the historic year of 1994. Frank was en fuego that year.

E.T.I. (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) Blue Öyster Cult
It’s hard to remember, sometimes, that the BÖC are more than a punchline about cowbells. But it’s true.

May I Land My Kinky Machine? Jimi Hendrix & Chas Chandler
When he asks so politely, how could you say no?

The Terran Invasion of Alpha Centauri Year 2794 DJ Spooky
Apparently there’s a Barry White sample in there somewhere.

Tom Baker is still my favorite Doctor.
