The author of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." Major influence in psychedelic drug use on the west coast such as Timothy Leary was on the east. He and his band of Merry Pranksters experimented with drugs such as LSD and cannabis beginning in the early sixties, predating much of the later era hype. In I believe 1964, they undertook a cross-country road trip in a psychedelic, day-glo, hand-painted old school bus. All along the way, they "turned on" many people to the mind-expanding effects of LSD. They lived communally at Kesey's cabin in La Honda, and hosted parties called Acid Tests where the house band, an early incarnation of the Grateful Dead, played. Here, they served "Electric Kool-Aid," which was Kool-Aid spiked with acid. in short, Ken Kesey is one of my idols.
Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters are described in detail in Tom Wolfe's novel, "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test."

That Gallahad sure is a lilylicker, he won't even defend his wife after someone spoke ill of her.
A brand of delicious dog food made by Nutro. It is a green package that depicts a lhasa apso on the front, so naturally it is good. The food comes in pellet form, but they also make tasty chops. It was awarded the top pet store dog food. It's the obvious choice for someone looking to buy a nice food for their dog. It's also especially good to feed to dogs named Rocky.
I just finished feeding Nurto's Natural Choice dog food to my dog, Rocky.
An awesome feel good type of music that everyone loves. It makes you want to skank all over the place. It always reminds me of the first Tony Hawk Pro Skater game for N64.
"Police Truck" by the Dead Kennedys is a great ska song.
Bands like Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, and Catch 22 are popular in the ska scene today.
