Ken, I feel like it's important to know that when you play the original animated "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" followed by the Star Wars Christmas Special on mute it syncs up in a meaningful way with your episode from December 16, 2015. Did you intend it that way?

Thanks, Stuart Rose. Even though my father's nickname is Rolling (because he used to listen to the Rolling Stones when he met my mom) he ended up indoctrinating me into Yes, Gentle Giant, King Crimson (the wrong rock prog bands), and Pink Floyd (thank goodness) from a very early age.

In the anti-drug rallies we had all the time in grade school in the early 80's, they gave us these pamplets, like comics, with a grid that told you the real name of the drug, the street names of the drug, what effects it had, and a cartoon character embodying the drug effects.

From that moment on, I was looking forward to psychedelics.

For a more mature version of hippie dream propaganda, see Iain M. Banks' 'Culture' novels—"Consider Phlebas" was first, but "Excessions" is better-written and also spends more time in The Culture. (No involuntary work. Massively extended life and health. Free love. No gods. A second 'puberty' grows consciously-controllable drug glands in your brain. Free energy.)

Talking about psychedelics I have a great documentary suggestion for Ken et al. It is a film called Pharmacopeia. Have you seen it, Ken? It has something for everyone. People that like drug addicts/dealers/chemists, people that like Apartheid nazi experiments, people that like psyched fish, etc.

Yes, it started as James at 15. And when he lost his virginity on TV in 1977 it was very very controversial, due to the use of the reverse cowgirl on NBC in primetime.
