“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge’.”

Remembering Larry Hagman …

Oh Yeah!

Many people do not realize that psychedelic drugs saved Larry Hagman. No, it’s true. In the mid-1960s, Hagman suffered a nervous breakdown while filming the TV show I Dream of Jeannie. The crew carted Hagman off to a psychiatrist, who suggested he combat his anxiety with LSD. A few days later, Hagman’s friend Peter Fonda took him to a Crosby, Stills and Nash concert, where he was handed several tabs of acid by folk rocker David Crosby. Hagman claims that he saw his body’s molecular structure during that first trip. And after a few more tabs of LSD and a whole lot of marijuana our boy, Larry, was back on his game. Hagman was an amiable eccentric who enjoyed dressing up as a British policeman or a French legionnaire and leading impromptu parades down the beach. Upon death his wish was to have his body ground up and “spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and make a big marijuana cake. People would eat a little Larry.” Sadly his last request went unfulfilled …

And what does Larry Hagman have to do with music and this blog? Nothing.
