old syd

today, i discovered syd barrett. i mean, really discovered him. the first time i heard him, i was a freshman in college (murph, you were there -- remember john barrett and syd barrett??) and i laughed at the guy who made me listen to him. (i had never been wasted - maybe that had something to do with it?) but today, i listened to stuff from the madcap laughs. it is so unravelled and raw - how did i miss this all these years? it isn't slick. it is so much FUN. people take music too seriously. i guess this reminds me that music is fun, it's psychotic, it's dark and silly all at once.

lord, i would love to find syd barrett and talk with him now. i wonder if he knows who he is.
