Sixties Laugh-In: The Firesign Theatre

Gene Santoro, Nation, The, 21 January 1999

"THEY'VE COME TO steal my dreams," whimpers a female voice. A series of male voices drifts past: "Get up, lady." "It's the trade of the century." "There's monster money in every sweaty mattress when you trade in your used dreams at Unconscious Village." "But those dreams have been with me since the beginning," she asserts weakly. The response: "Don't be stuck with leftover dreams in the terrible days to come."
