Marmalade skies

News of the death of Albert Hofmann, inventor of LSD, reaches us just as a giant inflatable pig is reported missing above the California desert. Coincidence? I think not.

Turn on, tune in, drop dead.

What happened to the flying pigs that Pink Floyd used before? Have they all floated off into another solar system?

Didn't The Muppets have Pigs In Space?

They were all on something, especially that Animal.

Talking of drugs, I was amazed to see your Radiohead book mentioned here Tim.

And Timothy Leary was spotted wandering naked through Golden Gate Park (I made that up).

Betty: They disappeared into the Wandsworth Quadrangle (the black hole that exists between the chimneys of Battersea Power Station).

Actually, Geoff, I thought Animal was the one doing cold turkey...

Murph: D'OH!!! Now I've got to think up a new subhead...

No, Dick, Leary will always be spotted wandering naked through Golden Gate Park.

I would have some acid to commerorate this, but I don't have any. Maybe some mouldy bread will do instead?

I'm glad Roger got his pig back.

Tim Footman said...

Yes, Billy, I'm glad too. I pictured him going back home on the top deck of the 38 bus, his pig under his arm, saying "Now, don't do that again!"

Then I remembered the 38 doesn't have a top deck any more, which is sad.
