Hot Topic might be weird as shit, but they don't mess around with their band and movie/tv t-shirts
Reminds me, I used to have a vintage Dark Side of the Moon shirt. It was older than I was. I don't know what happened to it
The pathetic thing is, I wasn't even into Pink Floyd yet when I used to go around wearing that shirt. It took me way too long to get into them, because my parents let me watch The Wall with them when I was little and it freaked me out so bad that I didn't want to listen to give the band a chance.



And there are plenty of bands that are way, way, way more overrated than Pink Floyd are. Let's argue about them

Same! Well, my mother was never too keen on letting me watch the movie. It was always my father who'd stick it on and allow me to watch with him. It scared the living daylights out of me (particularly the meat grinder in Another Brick In The Wall!), but in a way that made me curious about them.

Before I discovered the Internet and thanks to The Wall, I thought the band members were scary short-haired Germans. Those were the days when CD sleeves of old albums never had photographs in them, just instructions on how to clean the CD.

I can't believe your parents let you watch The Wall when you were a kid. That's great!
I'm also happy that families are gathering around and listen to Floyd. I can just picture Grandma singing Young Lust: "Oooh, I need a dirty woman! Oooh, I dirty girl!"

I recall being slightly firightened the first time that I listened to The Wall in its entirety; I belive that I was in the nineth grade.
I became a Floyd fan even earlier than that; my father was listening to Dark Side, and he told me that, after hearing the album, I would be a Floyd fan for life. He was quite right.

I watched the Wall when I was thirteen or so and I think what freaked me out the most were those rows of marching hammers,

That movie had some warped animation.

I'd say they're over-rated. Similar to The Grateful Dead.

Mid-tempo rock with self-indulgent & long instrumental sections.

The playing is always uber-perfect/scientific and unspirited.

17 minute songs is a major problem.

Thank God for weed.

That said, I do like alot of their stuff. Even saw Waters live in 2001.

Sorry for the off-topic

But... it is some kind of blasphemy to have 2 post-waters songs as my Floyd favorites??

Learning to fly and High Hopes

And Sorrow is actually pretty decent too...

I was a bad girl once when I was a teen, took some er hallucinogens with some friends, watched The Wall and literally freaked out and could never watch it again
I think it was MADE to watch on drugs.

Which is exactly why I've never seen it - never done hallcinogenic drugs before.

But if I ever do, I definitely want to see it.

Which leaves one wondering which drugs you have done. Maybe next time you go on one of your coke binges, you can watch the Wall, see what you think.

The Wall is far too cerebral of a movie to watch on drugs; you'll miss most of it...it barely makes sense when you're sober.

Now how about some truly retarded movies that would be good/better on drugs:

Kung-Pow: Enter The Fist
Zoolander
Dukes Of Hazzard Movie
Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd
Austin Powers 3: Goldmember
