What Else do you do on a Rainy Mother's Day?

So my kids got me something for Mother's day that I have wanted for years: namely My very own copy of Dark Side of the Rainbow, which is copies of Pink Floyd's album Dark Side of the Moon and a DVD of The Wizard of Oz. Then you play the album's audio over the Video of the DVD.

We sat down in our family room on Mother's day afternoon and played it and it was really amazing at how many coincidental events there were between the album and the movie. If they were in fact coincidental. I personally have always thought that Roger Waters is a genius when it comes to music, and had forgotten how amazing an album Dark Side was all by itself.

It really was a lot of fun, and I will never be able to watch the movie or hear the album again in exactly the same way. Here is a story from MTV via YouTube you can watch about it. (you don't have to take my word for it.)

I highly encourage you to try it for yourself just for fun.

Magpie! You're a Floydian?! Whodda thunk it?

Like they said in the video, this has been known for many years. Roger is extremely creative - even to a fault - but this is just a cool coincidence.

This Mother's Day present sure beats a new coffeee mug, huh? ;)
