New articles: Constellations and pop music


This is mostly about the Ethiopian princess in Greek mythology, although there is some passing reference to the name in astronomical significance and the sci-fi series. I'm thinking that most people who type in "Andromeda" in the search box will looking for the show, only to find a bunch of crap about Greek mythology and one piddly paragraph insulting it.

I alluded to the fact that I actually do hope I can name my future daughter 'Andromeda'. However, I figure the only way that is possible is to marry an even bigger astronomy geek than myself, or maybe a black chick.


This isn't so much a parody as an annoying homage. My favorite reference is the one to Groundhog Day. The day I wrote most of this and moved it to mainspace, Groundhog Day came on tv that night, so I added the animated gif.
