Name:Pink Floyd (Floyd Pinkerton)
Birthdate:Sep 6
Location:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Our story is about Pink, a rock & roll performer, who sits locked in a hotel room, somewhere in Los Angeles. Too many shows, too much dope, too much applause; a burned out case. On the TV, an all too familiar war flickers on the screen. We shuffle time and place, reality and lightmare as we venture into Pink's painful memories, each one a "brick" in the wall he has gradually built around his feelings. Slowly he withdraws from the real works and slips further into his nightmare as he imagines himself as unfeeling demagogue, for whom all is left is the demonstration of power over his unthinking audience, the culmination of the odious excess of his own world and the world around him. His internal self trial follows, as the witnesses of his past life, the very people who have contributed to the building of the wall, come forward and testify against him.
- Alan Parker
so you thought you might like to go to the show? to feel the warm thrill of confusion, that space cadet glow? tell me is something eluding you sunshine? is this not what you expected to see? if you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes you'll just have to claw your way through this disguise
