Edgar Rice Burroughs had one hell of an imagination - he didn’t just write the Tarzan books (including Tarzan at the Earth’s Core), but he also wrote a series of books about Mars featuring an immortal named John Carter. Rumor has it they’re making a movie about his adventures, and I anticipate it being awesome.
In the books, John Carter is supposed to be from Virginia. You know who else is from Virginia? Pusha T and Malice from Clipse, that’s who.
To top that off, here are some banging Mars-themed tracks to get you going.
* If you really want to stretch the connections here, it makes perfect sense to include a Neon Coyote remix in this Mars-themed post because The Coyote was a major character in Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy. Throw your hands in the sky if you’ve read it!
