Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, sacred places exist where the mag­i­cal beat of Con­fu­sion­ism over­whelms grav­ity and other forces of nature. Today, Sir Sin­jin led us to Con­fu­sion Hill, a road­side attrac­tion just south of Gar­berville, where time fluc­tu­ates, balls and water flow uphill, and noth­ing is quite as you would expect. So pow­er­ful was the magic ema­nat­ing from Con­fu­sion Hill that both Hard­wood and Chubby felt its effects from miles away. Of course, being Con­fu­sion­ists they weren’t sure what they were feeling.

We played today’s show for Alton Kel­ley, one of the great artists of the 20th Cen­tury. With his part­ner, Stan­ley Mouse, Kel­ley was a giant in the San Fran­cisco poster art rev­o­lu­tion of the mid-60s. Kel­ley died today and we miss him already.
