There is no dark side of the moon really; as a matter of fact it's all dark.
Pink Floyd might disagree; and so might Nick Drake, who wrote and sang "Pink Moon". :wink:
Thing is Scorp, I don't think Pink Floyd would disagree! The last words heard on Side 2 of the iconic album are from Gerry O' Driscoll, who was the doorman at the studio where the album was recorded, stating the fact!

Not really fussed what Nick Drake might think!! :lol:

Love it or hate it, but Marmite is basically a waste product of the beer brewing process!
a Marmite is a large French cooking pot

The statement does not make sense although it is often quoted as indeed is the more logical statement. The problem comes with Gerry O' Driscoll's heavy but lilting accent where the word "in" can also be heard as "of."

I don't think Gerry is with us anymore, so there is no definitive answer unfortunately. One day he might tell us at "The Great Gig in the Sky!"

Part of the sound engineering equipment for Pink Floyd's original 'The Wall' gigs at Earls Court had to be reclaimed from The Enid, who had been leasing it from Brittania Row, a production company Floyd had bought in 1975.

A group of frog tadpoles are called an army. Toad tadpoles are called a knot.

I had a double fart this morning - only the wife complained - not a lot of people know that. Gawd we need the season to start!
Their is a Norwegian Women’s football team in a town called Fart.
They are called Fart Women. Ask Kappadeano. It’s true.
Fart is normally translated as "speed" or "moton".
