Wizard of Floyd

INDCent Bill found a clip on YouTube illustrating the famous synchronicity between the Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz.

I particularly love how the spinning Leslie in "The Great Gig in the Sky" mirrors the spinning tornado in Oz.

I guess this is as good a place as any to note the recent passing of Floyd founder Syd Barrett, who gave Pink Floyd their name and whose LSD-and-fame-fueled descent into insanity colored all of the band's subsequent output.

Yeah, yeah (Who says a double positive doesn't make a negative?). The PF tune goes with almost anything. Such as, the movie I was watching in the lower right corner of my monitor while I evaluated this "experiment" (The Cave, if you must know).

I think one of the major failings of the internet is the lack of an appropriate emoticon - using ASCII characters - for the underwhelmed twit who has seen and heard it all before. That's me. That's the reaction I had (If you can call it a reaction).

Sound pretty similar to me.
