    Mr. Floyds Darkside of OZ

    This is old news. Im sure the majority of 12ozers have seen this/ heard about this, but i was subject to seeing it in a theatre last night.. and it was fucking great.So heres pretty much the set up for those that dont know/just want to try it out, see it again.

    1. Buy or rent the movie The Wizard of Oz.
    2. Buy a copy of of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.
    3. Put the CD in the player and press pause at the beginning of track 1.
    4. Put the movie in your VCR and begin to play.
    5. Turn off the sound on your television. Turn up the volume on your CD player.
    6. When the MGM lion roars for the third time, unpause the CD.
    7. If the credit "Produced by Mervyl Leroy" appears onscreen at the transition between "Speak to Me" and "Breathe," then you are correctly synched.
    8. Sit back and enjoy!

    Some of the synch's to notice:

    1. When Dorothy runs away from home, the line "No one told you when to run" from the song "Time" is heard.
    2. The tornado scene begins just as "The Great Gig in the Sky" starts playing. The song lasts for the entire duration of the storm.
    3. The female singer begins moaning, her voice rising and falling in time with the mood of the tornado scene.
    4. When "Great Gig" ends, the first side of the album also ends (not valid when using a CD).
    5. "Money" begins as Dorothy opens the door and sees Oz. The black and white part of the film ends at this point and begins in color.
    6. The lyics "Don't give me that do-goody-good bullsh*t" are heard as Glinda the good witch floats down in her bubble.
    7. The dancing ballerinas seem to keep time with the rhythm in "Us and Them."
    8. "Brain Damage" becomes the backdrop for the scarecrow scene where he's singing "If I Only Had a Brain."
    9. The album ends with a heartbeat, as Dorothy presses her ear to the Tin Man's chest to listen for a heart.

    This is beyond entertaining, esp if you happen to be high. Here's a decent site devoted to the subject

    Never heard of this.. sounds interesting though. Anyone know for sure if Pink Floyd did this on purpose? I don't see how it could be unintentional, but I was wondering if he officially admitted to it.

    Hippy -A person who opposes and rejects many of the conventional standards and customs of society, especially one who advocates extreme liberalism in sociopolitical attitudes and lifestyles.

    Damn, you nailed that one.

    Eh whatever, I'm sure most people would overlook that error and assume that I meant the lead singer of the band instead of trying to make themselves look smarter by pointing out other people's careless mistakes.

    *Edit: And before you correct me, maybe you should try using correct punctuation and capitalization techniques. You know, just to make yourself more creditable.

    Is that the episode where Adibisi pricks Nappa with the AIDS virus, or the one where O'Reilly finally admits to having Cyril kill Dr. Nathan's husband?
