You know that.”The Bee Gees – “Hey fellas, I know a great Polynesian restaurant right up the street.”The Ramones – “I’m Zorak Ramone”Dave Grohl – I’m a little bit frightened of you….and I like the feeling. It’s allll tingly.”Willie Nelson – “Well, fuck him!”Schoolly D & Weird Al Yankovic – “I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.”Space Ghost to Timothy Leary (author of The Psychedelic Experience), “What sort of superpowers do you possess?”Timothy Leary: “….overload your earballs, give you patterns and swirls of colors, and making you feel better and better…”Col.
