so used to the lp version of you're gonna miss me i almost forgot what the single sounded like...and i've never heard this single. i expect they cut off some vital lyrics at some point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:31pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, it's about four minutes shorter than the album version
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

If you have any hallucinogens handy, ingest them now.

I already did

Late to the party again - shit! Elevators, Yeah! First time I went to San Francisco when I was 11 years old they were all over the AM radio along with Revolver which had just come out. IA Forever!

Larry! You got the goods, man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:48pm Funky16Corners:

This record in particular. DEEPLY psychedelic.

Oh man! This one's way out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, and it gets even way-out-ier!

We're not going to go insane, are we?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:52pm Funky16Corners:

There's a distinct possibility!

Hey rw!

F16corners- Did red crayola go insane?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:55pm Funky16Corners:

No, they turned into a weird art rock band and kept putting out records for decades.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 10:56pm Funky16Corners:

As recently as 2016! www.discogs.com...
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:57pm Jeff Ash:

Your stream has been interrupted again. We're not getting The Golden Dawn. Some rando sax solo thing.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 10:57pm Franco Twinkie:

My mom was ironing and I was sitting on the floor watching t.v. and The Elevators came on. I thought they were beatniks 'cause they were wearing shades and I thought Tommy Hall was playing bongos (not a jug) I don't think I had heard the word "Hippy" yet.
Avatar    Wed. 5/30/18 10:58pm geezerette:

I've slipped into the stream, hearing jazz... oh THERE you are.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:00pm Jeff Ash:

Yep, good now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:03pm Funky16Corners:

That was weird. It looks good now
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:05pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - It must have been something to witness the Elevators happening in real time
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:05pm Funky16Corners:

BTW - the recording I post tomorrow should be seamless, if you missed anything during the tech snafu
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:08pm rw:

I think Mayo Thompson (Red Crayola) teaches at Art Center in Pasadena.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:08pm Funky16Corners:

That rings a bell
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:09pm rw:

Insane can be a subjective adjective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:10pm chresti:

No shit?!! We know a couple
people that teach there
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:11pm rw:

I also like God Bless the Red Crayola and All Who Sail With It.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:11pm Franco Twinkie:

Well its not like I saw them live, but on KFWB they would play The Supremes, then The Elevators, then Napoleon the 14th, then Frank Sinatra, then Love. It twisted my young head off. that's why I love WFMU!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

WFMU is a good place to get your head twisted off, and back on again
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:12pm chresti:

I meant insane like the point of no return via hallucinagens
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:13pm Franco Twinkie:

Amen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:13pm Funky16Corners:

Applied with care, they should allow return, but not everyone was (or is) "careful"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:13pm chresti:

in the 60s-70s
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Michael Pollen is leading the charge!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:16pm Funky16Corners:

His name wasn't familiar. I just looked him up. Might have to pick up his book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:17pm chresti:

I would only micro dose on the few occasions lsd was served
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:17pm Franco Twinkie:

He just read in a church down the street from our old place. SRO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:18pm chresti:

Did you go Franco?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:19pm Funky16Corners:

I haven't indulged in decades, but the ideas still fascinate me. I loved reading Terence McKenna and Leary's 'Politics of Ecstacy'
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:20pm Franco Twinkie:

No, I had practice. It was last Thursday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:21pm chresti:

I hear micro dosing is showing promise for depression
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

That was one of the original experimental uses
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:22pm Franco Twinkie:

I did see Terence Mckenna opening for Dr. Albert Hoffman at the Scottish Rites Temple.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:22pm Funky16Corners:

That's a pretty heavy double bill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:23pm Funky16Corners:

I used to read a lot of Rupert Sheldrake back when I was into McKenna
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:23pm chresti:

at a heavy venue
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:23pm Funky16Corners:

Somehow I don't think that's what the Masons had in mind!
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:24pm Franco Twinkie:

I bought Hoffman's book at the event: LSD- My Problem Child.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:24pm Funky16Corners:

I still have a copy somewhere
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

Wasn't the story that he accidentally dosed himself and discovered it while riding his bicycle home?
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:28pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes, He was trying to find a cure for head aches, Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:28pm chresti:

Ergot
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:30pm rw:

Must have been quite a ride.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:31pm Funky16Corners:

I can think of a few things I'd want to be doing while tripping, and riding a bicycle is not one of them
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:32pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti and I were at a party in Topanga Canyon and this guy shows up with a crumpled paper bag full of blotter, I put some in my pocket and forgot about it. However, some friends of ours did take it...I'll let her tell you what happened.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:32pm chresti:

not only did his headache go away, he was awake for a couple days
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

I thought you were going to say you forgot about it, and then put your sweaty hand in your pocket and took an unexpected trip
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:33pm rw:

I ran out in front of a car once. Wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done. Bicycle ride doesn't sound too bad to me though depending on traffic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:34pm chresti:

driving is risky
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

One night my brothers and I tripped in my apartment by the beach. We decided to go out for a walk, and were convinced that a van was following us. We were terrified until we realized that he was looking for a parking space.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

Good times!
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:34pm Franco Twinkie:

RW, I drove Angeles Crest while blazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:37pm chresti:

Frranco,All I remember is later, one of the fliers was having a bummer over a certain TV actor...Bob Cummings?
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Love That Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:39pm chresti:

It definitely was a Bob
  Wed. 5/30/18 11:39pm rw:

Oh man. We're heading into scary territory here... I need to get some work done so I'll have to refrain from story-time!

Larry, I'm bummed that I've only been able to catch bits and pieces of tonight's show. All sounding great. Thank you for another compelling and enjoyable radio program!
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Larry, walked by The Matrix recently - It's a fancy pants bar now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:40pm chresti:

From the golden age of Bobs on TV

In and out tonight as well, catch up in the archives. Glad I got back for Townes, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:42pm chresti:

I must take leave as well, before I run into Dodger traffic.

When MGM "cleaned house" in the '60's you could get the entire catalog at The Thrifty Drug Store - Mothers, Velvets, Animals, Ultimate Spinach -$1.98 each!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

Oy, don't make me think about it, though I was 8 in 1970, and my head wouldn't have handled any of that music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

I hear stories like that about rare soul being picked up for pennies back in the day.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Well, I was eight when The Beatles were on Ed Sullivan. I was confused about all the ruckus, but I came around PDQ.
Avatar Wed. 5/30/18 11:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Larry, you have over compensated for what you think you might have missed. You're only eight once. No crime in been too young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/30/18 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

True that.
