Before Peter Jackson began his Hobbit films, he had one dirty puppet film in him called Meet the Feebles. I've been waiting for something which could measure up to that sort of sleaziness again. And my weird desires have been answered by the royal family of puppets, the Hensons.

Tripping out. It can be so many things. Going somewhere you've never been. Going back to a place you always wanted to see again.
No trip is quite like the last one. Some locations may not seem to change, but you've changed so everything old is new again & versa visa. Traveling is the quickest road to some sort of enlightenment. If you can afford international adventures on your or someone else's dime, go do it. Domestic trips are good. You must know someone who will let you crash at their place.
And then there are the times when we need to go internal for a bit of drugged out fun and/or personal reflection. That's where I'm at these days. Broke with a case of wanderlust. So I'm going to watch Peter Fonda tripping balls in 60's Los Angeles. For now, it will due.
Be you Mod or be you Rocker, it is hard to dislike this film and harder still not to break out your Who albums a day or two later. Quadrophenia straddles the realm between being bound for a time capsule while also managing to tell the timeless tale of youth, rebellion & breaking free from the cold comfort of conformity.
I am still recovering from my summer hangover of toxic films (if you feel like getting in a terrible mood, go watch Kick-Ass 2) with a soothing tonic of documentaries.
The Source Family is just one of those films. It restores your hope in searching for the meaning in life while belonging to a super stylish Southern California cult. You too will want to find your own personal guru (or maybe just try to eat a little better and get some meditation into your day).
