Happy Birthday America- OH SNAP ALIENS

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind.


Wow okay- Maybe I got a little ahead of myself there. Sometimes I have difficulty differentiating between America’s birthday and that really awesome(ly awful) film where Bill Pullman leads America to victory against a subjugating alien race that chose Brent Spiner for a brief moment as their sweet vanilla mouth piece.

Dr Brackish Okun everyone. Sweet Vanilla mouthpiece.

No matter how many years pass I find myself gravitating back to Roland Emmerich’s first foray into the near annihilation of the world and every year, I find myself completely giddy with almost every aspect of this preposterous film. Whether it is the strange old married couple vibe between Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith, listening to Harvey Firestein yelling about his mother or my first exposure to Mary McDonnell as everything I would eventually ever want to rule humanity in Battlestar Galactica, there is a strangely beautiful synchronicity that I will continue to watch as I chew on watermelon  for years to come.
