Peter Bergman of the 60s Avant garde comedy troupe The Firesign Theatre has died. These guys helped nurture the imagination of many a chronic daydreamer (and let’s face it, many a chronic stoner too). I started listening to them in 1970-71 when my sister brought home one of their record albums, How Can You Be In Two Places At Once When You’re Not Anywhere At All. She was preparing a theatre monologue, but I got hold of the album and it Blew My Mind (man). They were still touring the west coast and put out a CD of new material as recently as 2001. They were an integral part of my formative years.

So sad.
