For shame on those who don’t know who Brian Cox is, he’s a brilliant, bright eyed, British particle physicist (and formerly the keyboard player for D:Ream). I’ve always had a love of the universe, the night sky and the stars so imagine my child-like wonder as I watched ‘Wonders of the Universe’, a show where Brian Cox explained dwarf stars, eclipses,time, black holes, supernovas and a load of other astronomical things I either can’t pronounce or still don’t fully understand. He’s the David Attenborough of the astronomical world. I’m sure I could dig up some astonishing facts about Cox if Wikipedia wasn’t blacked out right now (damn you SOPA).
Stargazing LIVE has been showing on BBC over the past two nights and it saddens me to say that it concludes tonight. Just for the record I completely ‘ship’ Brian Cox and Dara O’Brien, they make a beautiful couple. I also think Cox should be made king of the Andromeda galaxy. I may have to start a petition. Tell us Dr.Cox, how many signatures would I need on this petition?
Stargazing LIVE has taught me a lotta things but what will probably stick with me is the rage I feel about living in a city that just loves light pollution. It’s a fact that I’ll never get to see the tiny blob of the Andromeda galaxy, the Milky Way or any other galaxies/constellations that make me sound like I know what I’m talking about.
Therefore, to Brian Cox, I propose a midnight picnic. I can’t sing well enough to upload a video to YouTube where I desperately sing out to Foxy Coxy for a night of stargazing, although I have written many songs, most notably ‘I Love Cox’. I’ll bring the picnic blanket, the basket of cheeses and wines and Bri-Bri can bring the equipment and info. Siriusly romantic.
