Yeah that sounds like me, my handwriting is atrocious. It's legible but it just looks disgusting. I'll attach a sample from one of my copies.

Wow, and I've spent YEARS trying to create new MX-80 and P-Funk fans around here! (A failure) 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

You created a new P Funk fan in me! Mind, the only album I've heard is Maggot Brain, but I do like it very much.

Yay! 

I should point out that Funkadelic and Parliament made quite different music, even though they the personnel was the same: Funkadelic had a lot of hard rock and psychedelia in their sound, while Parliament was more funk and dance oriented (and sold more records). As George Clinton put it, the initial rule was no fuzz guitars for Parliament, no horns for Funkadelic, but that guideline was frequently broken (and the respective bands` records became pretty interchangeable by the turn of the 80s.

That's interesting to know - I had noticed that more of the successful/iconic songs (usually with funk in the title) tended to be on the Parliament side of things.

I love how most of Parliament’s songs are about the same thing. “Isn’t this song funky!?”

So I had a dream last night... 

I was flicking through some old photos when I came across a photo I immediately recognised as being @SgtPeppersBulldog (looking not all like what I imagine him to look like in real life) sitting underneath some sort of overturned canoe-like structure, which was made of logs and tied together with rope. Possibly on a tropical island? Anyway, as dreams do, the photo came alive and Peppdog and I had an interesting conversation which went something like:

Holey: How're you going?

Peppdog: You should wake up right now so you can remember this dream.

Holey: You've cut your hair - it's pretty short...

Peppdog: You should wake up right now so you can remember this dream.

Holey: Actually now that I think about it it's been a while since we've seen each other...

Peppdog: You should wake up right now so you can remember this dream.

Holey: Oh alright then...

 

And then I woke up, and remembered the dream...
