    Default Pink Floyd and The Wizard of Oz

    Sponsored Links

    I've heard some Floyd fans actually watch The Wizard of Oz with the sound off, while synchronistically playing The Wall album. Hmm. Must have first been done by a stoner.

    I've never done this myself... Even though Floyd is my favorite, not just of the rock genre, but of all music, and though I do like the Wiz, I just don't have the inclination to waist two hours. Just wonderin'... Any bloke here ever done it? :what:


    Anyhow, as I was watching 300 recently, I kept thinking how this film would fit so well with Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Of course, 300 runs about 1hour56min long, whereas Dark Side is only about 43min total. Hmm. Maybe watch the movie while listening to both Dark Side & Wish You Were Here albums?

    For Heaven's sake, think about it!

    P.S. Man, that settles it... I'm a true genius.

    It's not The Wall, it's Dark Side. And yes I've done it.
    I reject your reality and substitute my own.

    Here's a site that actually explains it in detail.

    But what I wanna know is how the Hell can ya watch a 101 min film with a 43 min "soundtrack", namely Dark Side?!? HA! :angry:

    Not much of a genius if you can't follow the simple instructions of some stoner. Read it again. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    And yes I've done it several times. but not since the advent of the VCR. Used to wait for it to come on tv and make a night of it. We'd have a party and someone would bring a second turntable because we did it on Vinyl.
    As I lay there gazing up at the billions of stars above my head in complete awe of creations beauty and vastness the most pressing question on my mind about the meaning of it all was, "Where in the hell is my roof?"

    I did it while tripping and it was amazing. ............... I probably shouldn't have said that.
