"The time has come," The Walrus said,
"To speak of other things. Like shoes and ships and ceiling wax, and cabbages and kings! And while the sea is boiling bright, and weather pigs have wings, kaloo kalay we're off today! Like Cabbages and Kings!"

Sorry, but I had to express myself. I love that little song thing.

You mean the one that was written while the members were drunk?

I am the Walrus...
You are the Eggman...
We are the Eggmen...

"I told you about the walrus and me, man,
You know that we're as close as can be, man.
Well here's another clue for you all,
The walrus was Paul."

Such an inspiring album...well, for the Manson Family at least.

So, apart from Ave, no-one has heard this song/thing? WTF? It's only one of the coolest old school songs of all time.

@ Ave: I'm pretty sure that it was made before the movie 'Alice in Wonderland' But yes, that is the song I'm talking about.

DarthAve

I always liked that song from the flowers in the garden better. But my favorite was the rabbit's song.

"I'M LATE! I'M LATE! FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE! NO TIME TO SAY HELLO, GOODBYE, I'M LATE! I'M LATE! I'M LATE!"

I'd recommend you a book, but you are entirely too young. Wait a couple years before you start reading Alan Moore if you ever decide to do.

That was actually just Starship. There is a difference... I'm not sure what it is though. Airplane is the only one I liked ;)

Alice in Wonderland and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass are longer and use a somewhat outdated form of English, but the description and the rhymes sprinkled throughout it are alot of fun I wouldn't say it was darker than the movie though. The movie had more modern english and was slightly more sanitized, but the story was originally intended for children. If you want dark children's novels, read the original Grimm fairy tales (cinderella's sisters cut off parts of their feet so they would fit in the shoes). As for authors on drugs ... Edgar Allan Poe has some brilliant peices, and it's thought that he was on opium when he wrote them.

elTee
12-12-2006, 10:57 AM
Yeah Poe was into Laudanum I think, which was basically a medical mixture of alcohol and opium. It's still legally available on prescription, though I would imagine that it's almost never proscribed for anyone.

As for books written under the influence that I like... well, as far as I know it's impossible to write anything whilst 'on' LSD or any other psychedelic, but almost everything by Ernest Hemingway, and Hunter S. Thompson's 'The Rum Diary' absolutely reek of alcohol. I love those two authors :)

Miss_Mayhem
12-13-2006, 12:06 AM
If you were high though, you wouldn't be 'sane' enough at the moment to type or record yourself. Just settle for Poe.

I've never heard of a single author who has purposefully recorded themselves gibbering away whilst tripping, and then transcribing what they write into a novel. It would totally devalue the author! "Yeah I couldn't write, so I just took a load of LSD and when I woke up the book was right there."

LSD doesn't impair memory functions, and neither does Psilocybin or Mescaline - if someone trips on any of these drugs, they will remember what happened to them when they are sober again. So they wouldn't need to record themselves, if they felt inclined to write about 'the experience.'

What about Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, although that was largely fictionalized.

If you like 'Alice in Wonderland', you'll probably like 'The Call of the Wild' and 'White Fang' too.

Hitting midgets has always been a challenge. I prefer the traditional kicking method, them being much closer to my foot than my fist and all.
