Lyrics
It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
Sunshine she's here, you can take a break
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don't care baby by the way

Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don't hold it back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I'll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don't waste your time
Here's why

(Chorus)

Bring me down, can't nothing
Bring me down, my level's too high
Bring me down, can't nothing
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)
Bring me down, can't nothing
Bring me down, my level's too high
Bring me down, can't nothing
Bring me down, I said

(Chorus)


Thanks for watching!

I really hope you're able to make it next year. There's nothing quite like watching vids with friends at VVC.

Thanks so much about the vid. :)

This vid gave me so many wonderful science and space feels. As I expect you might know. :) I just loved everything about it. Thank you so much for making it.

I'm not sure if you saw, but back in February or so I tweeted that someone should make a Cosmos vid for VVC. A con-goer replied and said Destina probably would. :) So when I decided to make this, I was a bit afraid it would be compared to yours, if you made one too.

It's amazing to see that you liked it!

Yay!! I love this so much. Big smiles the whole way through. Awesome job!

Thanks so much, SE! Also, I wanted to mention that Club Vivid went *nuts* when your Evil Dead vid came on this year. Really wish you could have seen it.

I think it was said by someone else that science is NDT's fandom and he's joyful about sharing it with us. That can be said about scientists everywhere, I believe.

Thanks so much for the kind words.

Ooh, I hope you like the series! I was really surprised by how emotional it got. There was so much to pack into the vid. Really glad it worked for you!

This vid made me SO happy Saturday night, even as I was beginning to suffer from a massive migraine. Thank you so much for making it! <3
bradcpubradcpu on August 14th, 2014 01:06 am (UTC)
Oh, sorry to hear about your migraine! That's a terrible time to get one. It's lovely that you were able to enjoy this anyway. Thanks!

So much love, dude. We are happy because smart is sexy and science is beautiful and amazing!
bradcpubradcpu on August 14th, 2014 01:07 am (UTC)
*HUGS* Someday I'll have to watch in the overflow room with you. It sounds like that was the place to be this year.

I love this vid so much. I love the way you blended animation and GCI and live-action; I love the specific parts of the animated storylines you opted to highlight; I love Neil DeGrasse Tyson's giant geeky enthusiasm for science, the way it's so obviously his fandom, and he gets to share it with all of us, and that makes me gleeful; I just love this vid, full stop.


ETA: okay, I just wrote all of this in a comment on destina's journal and figured maybe I should say it here too. :-) This was one of the vids I really connected with this weekend. I am a gigantic geek, and I have loved the new Cosmos, for all kinds of reasons -- his sense of wonder at the vastness of space feels actually very theological to me (even though I know he wouldn't use that term), and I love the show's frequent focus on women and people of color, and basically I just adore the show, and the vid highlighted everything I love about the show while also managing to feel like it was also saying something to me about fandom, how my experience of fandom sweeps me away sometimes and whisks me into the vastness of amazing outer space. The "room without a roof" is because we go flying together, you know?

WOW! Thanks so much, Kass!

It's wonderful, first of all, to hear these things from someone who actually watched the series - I haven't run across many people who did. And beyond that, you *get it* so well, and put it so beautifully. I'm more than happy to get swept away into a room without a roof with you and the rest of the con each year.

Also, I just wanted to say how much I admired your beautiful Carlos/Cecil vid, in so many ways. But I guess that's a subject for another post.

This vid is pure geeky joy, and I cannot thank you enough for making it for VVC Premieres show. This was, without a doubt THE BEST way to end the show. SO MUCH JOY!!!

*hugs*
bradcpubradcpu on August 14th, 2014 01:12 am (UTC)
Ha! Thank you so much, Zen! I was really worried that the song would be a bit too gleeful for the show. Guess I shouldn't have worried!

eee! oh, I loved the room without a roof and that little "bing!" Sagan gave with his fingers and your wonderful choices all throughout. This filled me with such happy science and space feelings and the pain of striving -- so worth it. Thank you for this.
bradcpubradcpu on August 14th, 2014 01:13 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for the lovely comment. There was so much poignancy in the series it was really difficult to pick specific themes. But what came across most strongly to me was the joy that comes in sharing these things.

*bittersweet space tears*

I'll shed them right beside you.

I can't wait to show this to my kids when they wake up! This vid is making me so happy this morning.
bradcpubradcpu on August 14th, 2014 01:14 am (UTC)
That's wonderful. :) I hope they like it. My 10 year old did.
footreedreedfootreedreed on August 12th, 2014 12:03 pm (UTC)
On a pretty tough day this was exactly what I needed to see. Space! Science! And so many wonderful things!

Thank you.
bradcpubradcpu on August 14th, 2014 01:15 am (UTC)
I'm really glad you were able to find some joy in it. Thank you so much for telling me.

Happiness is the truth
Oh fun! This was definitely a happy-making show for so many :)

Re: Happiness is the truth
It was for me! I'm glad you enjoyed the vid.
