"saturday ides of July watched on youtube Prudence
and The Pill., released 23 may 68 ("Lady madonna",
released ides of March 68 musta been burnin' up them Rochester
NY charts). As I remember, this was a '60s movie about "The
Pill"; VERY british with David Niven as a very uptight "no
sex we're british" type of bloke; someone switches the Pill for
Asprin and all of a sudden we singing DMZ's "gaga ga goo
goo....baby boom"! British humour, that's 87 per cent of
my DNA; DO watch it "In the Time of our lives"(Iron
Butterfly man...(release 14 June 68....was "in a gadda da
vida"...watch this movie with the sound down and get stewned,mun
and lissen to Ron Boucher/ Bushy's drum solo man"...

Immortals' on Zuma radio 740 AM toronto canada 430-6 pm -and
the never-ending Gordon Lighfoot saga. Guess he
did a 1986 album (year Willie Loco and Robert E. Bear (RIP) recorded
with Hopelessly Obscure) that didnt sell much though he was "sour
and mean" (I think when drinkin' but at that 1986 point in
life was healthy and happy. side note: love the dj saying 'aboot"
like Dad's half-canadian mother (my seventh cuzzin AND eight cuzzins
