It's been told to me that during the rare events of lunar eclipse, Green Sunfish are known to put down their arms (Death Ray) and hold hands while singing songs of distant planets and other universes. Then, eventually, they end up singing "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall."

All though this night does in fact have ceremonial significance to the GSA, the ceremony specifics are a closely guarded secret. I can tell you however that the use of attitude adjusting liquids and Pink Floyd's surrealistic music plays a prominent role in the ceremony.

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.


Why is it that song just seems to speak to me???

I'll be sure and include you in all future Pink Floyd discusssions.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Ah yes, I was once an unwilling attendee at one of these ceremonies. As the anticipation built to a frenzied level, the whole thing was called off due to the GSA not being able to get the 8-Track player to work (this was in 2006).

LOL. \:\)

While RES are out terrorizing the planet, GS are dealing with a jammed 8-Track player.

You're sure you didn't mean:

Overhead the albatross
hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves
in labyrinths of coral caves

The echo of the distant tide
comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green
it's submarine.......

The pondmeisters Floyd

The event finally stops when both the GSF and RES in their utter ignorance realize that each and everyone of them is just - "Another Brick in the Wall".

Part I

Daddy's flown across the ocean
Leaving just a memory
Snapshot in the family album
Daddy what else did you leave for me?
Daddy, what'd'ja leave behind for me?!?
All in all it was just a brick in the wall.
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.

Part II

We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

Floyd breathes hard, I hear a zip

I was shamed

I sense others in the room
Opie, Aunt Bea, I presume
They take turns, and cut me up
I die smothered in Andy's Clutch

I was shamed

Dwelling near the Dark Side of the Moon (some call it border land) I am ready to celebrate by embracing the Beer Fridge and having my first Corona since January 4th (day of the bone sawing)!

Is this a great solar system, or what?

Eclipse
(Waters) 2:04

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

This thread got me thinking about some of the concerts that I went to in my youth.

Best of the bunch? Had to be....

June 19, 1977

San Diego Sports Arena

A 19 year old JHAP in one of the first few rows....

JHAP, I was eight years old when you saw the lights at the Zep show in '77.

Just FYI if you didn't know, there's a live Led Zep release called "How the West Was Won." It is crushing. If you don't have it you're missing out. It's been out for a few years now. The live version of Immigrant Song is unreal. Three disc set.

I always wondered why the heck Joe Frank got to use his whole name, but somehow only rated a second in the name order.

It's kind like Theo, Bruce Condello and Cecil.
