I changed my mind. This is no longer my slice of the American Dream pie. It is now just a place for me to bitch.

Don't Do Acid!

I'm sure you've all heard of Brian Wilson of the Beach boys and how he went all nuts after his latent mental illness and his drug use combined to turn him into a nut bar. Well, this here is Syd Barrett, founding member of Pink Floyd, he was also a brilliant rock musician, and he went even crazier! He went on to turn into a fat bald dude who really liked pork chops. I don't know if he's dead or not, my brother probably knows. Anyhoo, the point here is that if you're going to take up a drug habit choose heroin, look at Iggy Pop, that dude is cut-- all thanks to heroin. And heroin never leads to any negative consequences, I defy you to name me one rock musician who suffered any ill effects from heroin, see, you can't. So let's all ride the horse.

Syd is still living in Cambridge. He is, from what I hear, going blind. Overall, he is better than he was in the 1970s when he went batshit crazy.

Also, check out the recent David Gilmour DVD where he covers Syd's song Terrapin.

Franky Lyman, Jim Morrison, Billie Holiday, and many more than my lazy-ass cares to research! But I am still willing to dope it up if anyone wants to!

P.S. Today is Chuck Norris's 66th birthday.
