The Healing Powers of Dropping A "Psychedelic Pill"
The Small Pill? Or the Big Pill?
(Click photo to enlarge)
The other day, we posted another version of the "Psychedelic Pill" album cover art and asked the question Which dosage do you prefer? The Small Pill? Or the Big Pill?.
And -- maybe as expected -- folks like their psychedelic pills in large doses.
Here are the results from our exclusive TW Shakey Poll: 46% prefer the big "Psychedelic Pill" dosage, 42% prefer the small dosage, and 11% don't care.
Which brings us to our Comment of the Moment:
Change the album's title to WALK LIKE GIANT. That has more meaning than anything.
When i first heard that song, the first simple lyrics, Walk like a giant.....floating like a leaf...but back to wanting to walk like a giant ..... had more impact on me than anything Neil in 10 + years. Perfect. Made sense. Didn't even have to get deeper than that basic idea. Anything more was extra. And doing it with CH made it to another level. After that I said if Neil never records again,he hit the high mark again. I'm satisfied.
2 weeks later after a heavy hike in Hawaii( walking like a giant), I was diagnosed with a bunch of cancer. Boy did those lyrics fit then. From walking like a Giant to Floating like a leaf....but of course I will continue to try and get back to walking like a giant !!! I had major surgery 6 days ago. Been home 3 days. I dont even know how I am typing this.
I listened to walk like a giant every day in the hospital. I have a long way to go but I will walk like a giant if its the last thing I do. Thanks Neil for the great song ! Inspiration beyong all my 42 years of listening to your music. Never stop trying to walk like a gaint. Never baby ! You get it, as you always have. This is the essence of life, even without my complication.
I feel great considering. Mentally strong.
Ready to fight. Long way to go. I even asked the doctor how could i have been so sick and hike like that and then be this weak and sick ?
It was all in my spirit for life i guess.
Walk like a giant as the title with a pic of Neil and the guys hiking in volcano region of Mauii ! That would do it for me. I intend to shortly pre-order the vinyl, cd and blu-ray. It may take me months or years to walk like a giant again, but there is no doubt I will.
Cant wait for the official release.
Thanks Neil and CH for a great one !
Thanks pal. All the best and a speedy recovery back to walking like a giant. And you will my friend. Your spirit is strong and the spirits are with you. Be well.
ps - so tell us, Which dosage do you prefer? The Small Pill? Or the Big Pill?.
