Jefferson Airplane ♪ White Rabbit
Dearly beloved logicians, amateur and pro among us,
We've been slaving in newsgroup all day and night over dry academic subjects. I thought we could now have some amusement on logic at this moment!
Yesterday, while literally slaving in Second Life, i discovered a song from the 1960s that is based on the book Alice In Wonderland. The song is called White Rabbit, by Jefferson Airplane.
I SO love it.
Of all books i've red in my life, may it be formal logic treatise, may it be non-fiction as encyclopedia Britannica, may it be technical manuals such as GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual, may it be fictitious such as The Tragedy Of Titus Andronicus, may it be artistic of Emily Dickinson's Poems, may it be comics Batman, may it be porn like the Story of O or Penthouse Mag , may it be, may it be, but that if i'm pressed to pick one book as my all-time favorite, that would be - Alice In Wonderland [see Alice in Wonderland, and Through the Looking-Glass] .
[began unconsciously starting to write on (possibly few thousands words) my reasons … but STOP!]
Ok, i don't mean to ramble, but what i wanted to say in this post, was that i sooo love the song. And, i spent about 1 hour to write some commentaries on the lyrics. Without further ado, here it is.
White Rabbit song (1967) sung and wrote by Grace Slick (born 1939).
SURREALISTIC PILLOW, Jefferson Airplane. Buy at amazon
Jefferson Airplane, White Rabbit One pill makes you larger And one pill makes you small And the ones that mother gives you Don't do anything at all Go ask Alice When she's ten feet tall And if you go chasing rabbits And you know you're going to fall Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar Has given you the call Recall Alice When she was just small When men on the chessboard Get up and tell you where to go And you've just had some kind of mushroom And your mind is moving slow Go ask Alice I think she'll know When logic and proportion Have fallen sloppy dead And the White Knight is talking backwards And the Red Queen's “off with her head!” Remember what the dormouse said: “FEED YOUR HEAD”
