He could have posted on this subforum for real, but didn't do it.

It's a long time to hang in the sky.
It's a long way to post on the Wiki Review,
That's my sweet internet lullaby-iay..

See the subtitle for metadiscussion:

The Big Picture, the Crow's Nest, the 40,000-ft. View: Topics about the concepts, philosophy, and social psychology behind Wikipedia and Web 2.0. (Forum led by Jon Awbrey.)

Lar was actually nearly up there, but I think he just saw clouds. Very bland. He's looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down and still somehow, it's clouds' illusions he recalls. He really don't know clouds at alls. mellow.gif

You'll find that it's stranger than known if you have seen Leo Kottke cover it.

There's a version by the Ventures, but it's too ghastly to link to.

If it's weirdness you're after, look no further. In this video, there is no singing, you just get the instrumental jam at the end of the song. But the real attraction is that at 00:42 Joan Baez comes running out on the stage and begins to do the Funky Chicken, as well as many other denizens of the Funky Aviary.
