Chapter 6 – Penny Penguin shows the way

Astro Joey and her crew arrive at the lake. They lay out the mistletoe onto the lake and on the count of three, jump onto the misletoe. “Wee” said little green santa helper. “This misletoe moves fast hey?” They all hold tightly onto their leaves and whizz and slide across the frozen lake. When they land on the other side, they are greeted by Penny Penguin. “Hi girls, Ms Mistletoe updated her FB status and said that you may be on your way” “Well actually we are looking for Santa’s magic box so we can help Santa to make the toys and deliver them to all the children” said Astro Joey. “Yeah Santa’s leg is broken and if we do not get to the magic box in time, the toys will not be delivered” said the snowman. “Can you help us find the magic box Penny?” 

Sure” said Penny Penguin. “We need to walk through the Christmas tree forest to get to the top of the ice mountain” Once we reach the top of the mountain we will be able to see across the ice valley.” “Fantastic” said little red Santa helper “are we nearly there?” “I’m not sure” said Penny Penguin.” You see we must call out to the white winds in the valley, to ask them where to go next” “Ok, well we are closer than we were yesterday” said Astro Joey “so let’s go“.

Astro Joey, I must warn you” said Penny Penguin “The Santa Grouches often disguise themselves as Christmas lights on the trees in the forest. If you go too fast, you may disturb them and they will come out from the Christmas trees” “No problems” said Rennie the Reindeer. “I will down load the tracker app and turn up the lights on my red nose to show us the way”

Ok” said Penny Penguin, “but remember the Santa Grouches know how to hack and troll. Come on, I’ll jump on your back Rennie and we can lead the team together.”

THE SOUND OF PLUTO

Little Pluto-Science Reporter

by Little Pluto, Science Reporter, Tuesday 29th May 2012.

It’s been a tough time for us Plutonians since we were demoted to dwarf status. However we are a resilient bunch, although at times we have felt very left out, we still exist and operate as we always have. We are just having to deal with the human’s new awakenings. A lot of the problems arose inside our wider community of the Kuiper-belt where objects bigger than Pluto underscored our shaky status.

We were overthrown by the almighty “Xena”. ( In fact Xena is now known as Enis, after the Greek goddess of discord and strife.) You see Pluto is suffering as a result of the technology revolution. In the old days earthly scientists were unable to see clearly to the outer planets and what was there. Now with their new fan dangle toys they cited “Xena” who is just a little bit bigger than us Plutons. She has more attitude and to be seen by the humans through Hubble, she pranced around in front of the new technical telescopes of the human scientists.

Xena,also known as Enis, Teasing her way to fame

As much as we love the Hubble space telescope its ability to hone in closer on our outer region is interfering with life as we knew it. Outsiders…They just come in and think they have the answers to problems. By the way, a lot of our problems did not exist until earthlings butted in. So now to earthlings we Plutonians are merely known as an asteroid  number dubbed 134340. Mmmmm oh to be a mere number…

We have always existed harmoniously with Xena, we knew she was there. We played together well, until she started showing off through her new human fame. Humans mean well, but they have big egos that can interfere with life as we know it at times.

PLUTO has always had 4 moons

In June 2011 the Hubble set its telescopic eyes on P4, now classified as another moon for us, saying that we now have 4 moons. That’s cool but we have always known we have 4 moons, just because these earthly scientist can now see it, they believe it. There is an old earthly saying, if you did not see the tree fall in the forest did it really happen?

This column is not meant to be a whinge session about new human judgments on our world, the world we Plutonians always knew existed. (I do like earthlings they are funny little creatures:) ) What I really wanted to share with you all, is the cool sounds of Pluto. We have been jamming up here for millenniums creating great sounds waves. We have been rocking out and making molecules vibrate for gillion of years. Although for humans, they could never really hear the wonderment of our sound. Because you see sound needs a medium to travel through to be heard by the human ear.

Sounds of space silence

On Earth, sound travels to your ears by vibrating air molecules. In deep space, the large empty areas between stars and planets, there are no molecules to vibrate. There is no sound there. It’s that cool tranquil quarts rock jazz groove of the sound of silence, but its not really silent to all ears.

So, in order for sound to travel, there has to be something with molecules for it to travel through. That’s how Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays came to discover the Planet Pluto vibe. It was carried through Astro Joeys Blue jet and so her band could hear the Pluto sound.

Take a listen in the video and hear for yourself.    SOUND OF PLUTO

It’s been very cool because Astro Joey and The Cosmic Rays have really encourage me not to let the new human discoveries get me down. So Astro Joey said when you get built up emotions, instead of getting angry just express them in music. So Astro Joey and the Band, invited me to come play with them. It has been awesome and I learnt a lot. So much so, that some of the Electronica Bands around the cosmos have me helping them in the studio. I lay down the sound of Pluto and then the other musicians put down some cool melody’s and grooves. It’s a great thing to try. Give it a go.

So…..Rock on Pluto.

The Games of Heraby Lady Goo Goo Sports Reporter, Monday 28th May 2012

Lady Goo Goo -Sport Reporter

Throughout time many stories have been told of girls’ participation in sport. These stories have entered the cultural heritage of a people. Sometimes those stories have been limiting to the encouragement of girls into sport.

One of the greatest stories of women participating in sport, goes back to the great Ancient Olympics. Women and girls did not participate in these games, although they did have their own festival dedicated to the Goddess, Hera, the wife of Zues who was the head man at the Ancient Games.

Participating in the Heraean Games back in ancient days was a big motivator for me to drive the Galaxic Women’s Sport Foundation. Although it was great to be able to participate, there were some very strange rules back then.

A committee of 16 women from a cities of Elis organised the event. Like the ancient Olympics, the event was conducted every 4 years.

The goddess, Hera

Every year the Heraean Games were held, a peplos or a robe was woven and presented to the great Goddess, Hera and placed in her temple.

Girls competed in 3 age groups in only 3 separate foot races the length of the chariot’s racecourse, but less distance than the men.  It was known as the “Maiden’s Footrace” in honor of the goddess, Hera.  The winners received Olive crowns, just like the  Olympic victors and a share of the cow sacrificed to Hera.

One of the conditions to compete was that the girls who participated were not allowed to be married. If a married woman was found to have competed she was  “barred on penalty of death from the sanctuary of Zues on the days of the athletic competition for boys and men.”  Legend also has it that women and girls were not permitted to watch the men and boys events.

This ban was a key motivator to establish, in another universe outside of Earth, the Inter Galatical Girls Warrior Sports Foundation. I’ll write more on this foundation in future posts:)  I will also be covering the concept of music and sport in future articles

As a background, take a look at these videos:

Editor in Chief – Daily Galaxy

Saturday 26th May 2012 -The Daily Galaxy – By Astro Joey

Rosetta Stella, Planet Girlo’s Media mogul, announced today that she has linked in with Paper.li to create a new music magazine,  Astro Joey and The Cosmic Rays Music

I’m delighted to expand circulation of the band’s news through Paper.li” she said from her Galaxic Headquarters. It will assist in expanding circulation into regional and remote Galaxies, which is important to the band, for the girls do not want isolated communities to be left out of the fun”

Rosetta Stella: Planet Girlon Media Mogul

Ms Rosetta Stella’s Blue Galaxy Network is still to be rolled out to the far outer regions of the universes. Although there are varied cultures and languages across the universe and galaxies, Ms Stella believes that the music publication can break down such barriers, as she considers that “music alone is a universal langauge” A philosophy that is held strong by the band as well.

The current access to the Blue Galaxy network is restricted in the outer regions for some planets, such as near Pluto. Spokeswoman for Pluto, Little Pluto, said that she was “over her four moons about the news, as it has been a difficult time for Pluto since being demoted as a Planet”.

Little Pluto, delighted about the new Music Magazine

“Although Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays can be found throughout the earthly web via facebook, twitter,  reverbNation, Myspace, Google plus, I-broadcast tv, You Tube and Vimeo, our reception can go skewiff” sometimes “The paper.li,  Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays Music will just be fabulous“.she said

Rosetta Stella and her Media Company are a keen player in the world of convergence media and delivering it to isolated communities as well as  main stream communities. The company is currently encouraging partners for the new “Astro Joey & The Cosmic Rays adventure TV/web series. Interested parties can contact at astrojoey@vintrix.com.au

Look out for the launch notice here where you can get a copy of Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays Music Magazine here on this site. For a sneak peek visit http://paper.li/f-1337937638

Tuesday 15th May 2012 -The Daily Galaxy

ImageAs the saying goes “it’s a long way to the top if you want to Rock and Roll”. Rock is what Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays have been doing with their new release “I Am  A Star.”

Squealing fans lined up around the Planet Girlo Stadium to get the pre-release of Astro Joey & The Cosmic Ray’s new single - “I Am  A Star.”

Not since the ancient times of the Granite Beatles, have we seen such scenes and response to a new release.

We wrote it on our last tour when we came across some pretty nasty dudes such as  music promoter, Ratty Rockface,” said Astro Joey.“The music business can be tough and as much as there are great people out there, there are also a lot of sharks, waiting to see you fall.”

Image

Kristy Solarflare, The Royal Stella’s Musical Minstral and keys player in the band was the driver of the song. This single reminds us that it’s OK to be different, have dreams and shoot for the stars. She’s a wise gal and has a great head on her. Very creative and talented.

In my recent interview with her  for i-Rock TV, she explained her inspiration behind the song “Sometimes it takes a bit of inner strength and courage to follow that dream to the top. Along the way, other kids can be jealous, try and knock you down and be mean for being a bright light in that sky. When I saw Ratty Rockface being a bully with people, it made me mad, so I figured I’d just put my feelings about it into a song. Music speaks for itself and always wins out at the end of the day,” she said.

Ratty Rockface was removed and escorted from the venue and Astro Joey & the Cosmic Rays continued to play their Girlo Rock Quartz sound and blew their fans away. Bullies are just not cool.

“I am a star”  is a song that embraces uniqueness and pride in who you are. “I Am  A Star, is the lead song in the developmental cartoon series, “The Adventures of Astro Joey .”

Available now at :CD Baby     iTunes       ReverbNation  (Join the mail list now @ ReverbNation you’ll get a VIP ride and receive a free Astro Joey video music clip when you join:) )
