Become comfortably numb on some great music (the ONLY safe drug!)

I'm sure we can find many things that we agree on. What's most important is that when we disagreed it was in a respectful manner, and remained a friendly conversation.

To this day...I STILL rank  "Animals"  as being chief among Floyd's work.     There are some songs of theirs I've grown weary of hearing  (thanks a LOT, modern-rock radio...THAAAAAAANNKS!!!!!)...but...when I hear a more obscure track...I never turn it away.

Well, my friend...

At least we can find something to agree on.

Pink Floyd members claim to have never been on any kind of hallucinogens while creating their music. They were the first to create music to coincide with light affects was all. The crowds that were attending their shows were the ones hallucinating on mind damaging drugs. As for the was created by a now well known hippy. Yet think about this for a moment. The hippies were very social people. Yet the internet can be seen as anti-social, and we certainly aren't out enjoying nature whenever we are on a home pc. Ohh btw alcohol in large amounts can cause hallucinations, so I can, and do compare it to all other drugs. None of it is healthy. 

As for enjoying music from the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Jimmy Hendrix, ect. ect. ect. I do enjoy their music very much dispite the fact that they were experiencing the affects of such drugs as LSD, magical mushrooms, and marijuana. That doesn't mean their music is "best experienced" under the influence of such drugs. In fact I find it to be quite the opposite.

My memory of all 3 PF concerts was not at affected in any way, but thanks for the concern.

So, I'm curious about what you have to say about those certain bands who *made* their music while tripping through another dimension?  Surely it can be appreciated on the same level it was created??? 

However, as we probably both agree, alcohol can really mess things up.  Of the 45+ concerts I have attended, I have never have gone to a concert I couldn't remember, and always stayed away from the 'firewater' -- lol.  If anyone ever came too drunk, it ruined the whole thing for the rest of us.

But there's a huge difference between the two, so you cannot fairly compare booze to hallucinogenics -- without which, we wouldn't have that little mouse in your hand, or have discovered the DNA helix, or....  have a good selection of the Pink Floyd music we listen to.

I can and do listen at parties and the radio and all.  I just don't put a disc in the player, that's all.

"shrooms didn't hurt, lol. Only way to go, btw."

I'd have to disagree 150% on that. I saw Pink Floyd twice. I don't remember much of the first one, because I was really drunk at the time. The second was the best concert I'd ever seen! I recall almost every detail, because I was straight. There's NO drug like the adrenaline rush a great concert with great music, from such a great band can provide!!!

Hey Ron sorry to hear that. How do you deal with the radio, they are always played?

We were married 4 yrs. at the time.  My daughter was just getting ready for her first day of school.  
It should have been a much better time, especially for Sis.
Anyway, she wound up marrying the guy, so it's like a little more than a ghost, but I really am past it, just don't care to think about all that anymore than I have to.  
Does that make sense?

[WhiskeyWoman] Saturday, August 16, 2008 2:01:53 PM 

Oh, and...

...there is no dark side of the moon, really, it's all dark...

[WhiskeyWoman] Saturday, August 16, 2008 2:00:57 PM 

I'm sorry, I was drunk at the time...

Hey, Floyd is magic (the second of my fav bands of all time -- guess who's the first!?) -- and no chick has the right to take PF away from you -- just don't give her that power!  Saw PF three times in five days last year ... and "Dark Side" was everything you'd think it should be...  'shrooms didn't hurt, lol.  Only way to go, btw.

So ... "Cheer up", and just be thankful the 'cad' wasn't a JP fan!  Egads...

Ronhart, sorry to hear that man.  I feel ya.  That sucks when someone ruins your music.  Give it some time. 

[EriktheRed9] Monday, August 11, 2008 10:41:07 PM 
  I was caught red handed showing feelings of an almost human nature, this will not do...SO smash me into oblivion like the fucked human i am just out of spite you cold blooded wretch.
[ron h] Sunday, August 10, 2008 9:33:46 AM 
Thanks for the words.  And your right in what you say.  The guy was a good friend of mine 'til then, and we'd had a lot of good times.

It wasn't me Ron, I swear!  You shouldn't stop listening to a band you like b/c your ex had an affair with some guy.  You'll find someone new and who knows?  Maybe she'll like Pink Floyd as much as you do.  Also, you can try thinking about the meaning of the songs or just rock out to them.

My ex had an affair with a guy who LOVED Pink Floyd.  Needless to say, I have since lost any desire to play anything from them (which truly sucks, as they are one of the greatest bands of all time).
