On the other hand, I love people. It's amazing the amount of diversity on the planet. Every human has differing perspectives, unique beliefs, their life has provided them with an array of experience that is theirs and only theirs. Everyone has a story to tell -- it's just a matter of presenting it in an interesting and informative manner.
Last night a friend sent me a link to an animated clip, Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No. Baseball might be stupid, but Dock's story, which has been animated, is quite fascinating and entertaining as well. This clip is well worth the less-than five minutes of your time it will eat up.
Sadly, the great Dock Ellis died last December at 63. A year before, radio producers Donnell Alexander and Neille Ilel, had recorded an interview with Ellis in which the former Pirate right hander gave a moment by moment account of June 12, 1970, the day he no-hit the San Diego Padres. Alexander and Ilels original four minute piece appeared March 29, 2008 on NPRs Weekend America. When we stumbled across that piece this past June, Blagden and Isenberg were inspired to create a short animated film around the original audio.
