Every story in the series - and many of the "blackout" vignettes in between - featured a large, brass bed. This is probably an homage to The Bed (1968) by _James Broughton_, an experimental poet and filmmaker whose works were an influence on the Beat poets of the 1950s. "The Bed" is an award-winning 20 minute short that was filmed during the 1967 Summer of Love in San Francisco. It featured several nude men and women cavorting on a large, brass bed in a garden.
