Cosmos: A cosmic journey with Carl Sagan and Jimmy Fungus


Perhaps one of the greatest shows ever in the history of human mass communication media is "Cosmos" starring astronomer Carl Sagan, based on his book of the same name.  This show was so good, watching it was almost like having a spiritual experience...



"We are made of star stuff"...and when I started jimmyfungus.com,..I admit I kinda wanted it to be the kind of experience Carl Sagan envisioned for his own show in this very first episode of Cosmos...kind of a cosmic journey....

...Jimmy Fungus,...online journalist,... a man barely alive...traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. The shadowy flight into the world of a man who does not exist. James Fungus, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the helpless, the powerless... in a world of criminals who operate ABOVE the law. If you have a problem, and no one else can help, and if you can find him.. Jimmy Fungus can be that man. Better than he was before...better, stronger, faster. Next stop, jimmyfungus.com !

Ok, well if that whole schpeel  sounded familiar, it's because I just combined the intros of The Six Million Dollar Man, the Twilight Zone,  Knight Rider, and the A-Team (famous television programs not as good as Cosmos).

Now..take my hand, and join me as we go on this cosmic journey through the blogosphere...

This is Jimmy Fungus signing off for today.

Once again God bless you, and thank you for your support.

  2. Carl was a rarity among academics. Someone who could transmit ideas to people of all classes and backgrounds.

  5. Love the mash-up of intros you used. The remix is unique, and therefore your own. As a champion for others, you've got my support.
