Pipe Dreams | Digital Flotsam

Pipe Dreams | Digital Flotsam

Consummate storyteller PW Fenton nostalgically rewinds to the sex, drugs, and rocknroll of his youth in the 1960s. Or, at least the sex and rocknroll…

“Pipe Dreams is the true story of a breakthrough of sorts in my early efforts to get “high” on marijuana. It’s the story of failure and success and failure.

The picture you see above was taken of me at the very time this episode takes place. In fact…. the door you see behind me (yes that’s me) belongs to our friend Peter, mentioned in the show.”

There was some great music in this episode. Roughly in order of first appearance:

“Digital Flotsam Theme” by 3 Blind Mice
“I Wish I Was Stoned” by Stoat
“Rinel Rilke” by Santare
“Boody Call” by Antonin Bastian
“Aguamala” by Carne Cruda
“What! Not Anther Greasy Spoon” by Hank Marr
Movie clip from obscure late 30s movie.
“Sly Bone” by Larry Seyer
“Too Stoned” by The Undercover Hippy
Tiny excerpt from “In C” by Terry Riley
