Warriors have an ulterior purpose for their acts which has nothing to do with personal gain. The average man acts only if there is a chance for profit. Warriors act not for profit, but for the spirit.
For the average man, the world is weird because if he’s not bored with it, he’s at odds with it. For a warrior, the world is weird because it is stupendous, awesome, mysterious, unfathomable. A warrior must assume responsibility for being here, in this marvelous world, in this marvelous time.
—Carlos Castenada, The Teachings of Don Juan
Section 43 by Country Joe and the Fish
This video features 60’s footage from Joshua Light Show, who provided the incredible lighting for Country Joe and the Fish, as well as all the other groups that performed at New York’s Fillmore East.
Kiddies, this is how it used to be.
The Fish used to play free concerts in Provo Park in Bezerkeley, across from City Hall. I had my first acid trip at one of them, a sunny Sunday afternoon. I was 16.
Their first album was entitled Electric Music For The Mind And Body. My first album, over thirty years later, was entitled Pop Down The Years (Electronic Music For The Mind and Body). Do you you think they made an impression on me?
I never get tired of Section 43.
