You know you're getting old when there are anniversary's for things you love in art and culture. For example, 2013  is the 40th anniversary of the album 'Dark Side of the Moon' by Pink Floyd. Chris Williams wrote an article for Stop the Presses titled 'Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side’: 40 Years Later, 40 Mind-Blowing Facts About The Mad Classic.'  In that article, I learned that the band spend just three minutes deciding on the album cover.

The album cover (by Hipgnosis and George Hardiehas) has inspired many variations, some astronomical and some not. On the left is one  I purchased from toonpool; it is no longer for sale there.

This is not a humor book but is humorous and uses a comic format. The subtitle is 'Exposing the myths of science denial'. The first chapter is 'The Moon Hoax.'

One false rumor was that Stanley Kubrick was hired to film a fake moon landing.

A 1997 movie 'Wag the Dog' has a similar theme. "Just days before a presidential election, a Washington, D.C. spin doctor (De Niro), distracts the electorate from a sex scandal by hiring a Hollywood film producer (Hoffman) to construct a fake war with Albania."
Quote from Wikipedia

I have seen this movie and enjoyed it.
