Don’t forget Q -bert from the Western Slope of Colorado.
She even married a child predator.
Weren’t the gold coins chocolate last year, or maybe a previous year?
The six-color rainbow is not rare.
Storm Thorgerson was a graphic designer, who co-founded the design firm Hipgnosis. They created many, many iconic album covers.
Storm’s most famous album cover incorporated the six color rainbow refracting through a prism for Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side Of The Moon(DSOTM).
The six color rainbow is now used for the LGBT Pride flag, which Georgia Dunn has incorporated in previous strips.
DSOTM came out in 1973. I went through at least three copies of that album, helping to make it the longest charting Billboard album in history.
The LGBT Rainbow Pride Flag has a history beginning around 1978, but it was a few years later the creator settled on six colors after using several varieties including the seven Newtonian rainbow colors, supposedly having nothing to do with Pink Floyd, Storm Thorgerson, or the Dark Side Of The Moon, which was the biggest album of the 1970s.
It even has nothing to do with Greenpeace’s boat which was blown up for protesting nuclear testing.
Wikipedia conveniently leaves out the name of the boat driver who delivered the terrorists, but he is from a very important political family.
The boat Rainbow Warrior was named in 1977, and also has nothing to do with DSOTM except there seems to be a cultural touchstone with Rainbows and fighting for peace.
Venus is a Deadhead?
In later years The Dead paired Scarlet Begonias with Fire On The Mountain.
I still can’t make the Rumi connection. There are several good choices.
Scarlet Begonias ~ Grateful Dead
As I was walkin’ ’round Grosvenor SquareNot a chill to the Winter but a nip to the airFrom the other direction, she was calling my eyeIt could be an illusion, but I might as well try, might as well try
She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoesAnd I knew, without askin’, she was into the bluesShe wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls
I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls
In the thick of the evening, when the dealing got rough
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff
As I picked up my matches and was closing the door
I had one of those flashes I’d been there before, been there before
Well, I ain’t always right, but I’ve never been wrong
Seldom turns out the way it does in a song
Once in a while, you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right
Well, there ain’t nothing wrong with the way she moves
Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues
And there’s nothing wrong with the look that’s in her eyes
Had to learn the hard way to let her pass by, let her pass by
Wind in the willow’s playin’ “Tea For Two”
The sky was yellow, and the sun was blue
Strangers stoppin’ strangers just to shake their hand
Everybody’s playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band

Oliver’s very first TED talk!
My bed purrs.
And KC has figured out the remote to turn on the elevator for a ride, and how to turn on the massage function for purrs.
I would just like to remind the people that David Bowie had a clown persona. Granted, it was a Pierrot.
It was from Scary Monsters (and super creeps) best remembered from the original video for Ashes To Ashes.
They dug up the roses,
And put them in a rose museum.
And charged the people,
A dollar and a half to see them.
Don’t it always seem to go,
That you don’t know what you got ‘til it’s gone.
They paved Paradise
And put up a parking lot.
Credit toJoni Mitchell, sort of
There’s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say “cuckoo”
Regretfully they tell us Cuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel us Cuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye…Cuckoo!. . . to you
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I’d like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye — Goodbye!
I’m glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
