Syd Barrett's First Trip (1966) offers a fascinating glimpse into the early psychedelic world of Roger "Syd" Barrett (Pink Floyd's genius founder). It's a short, silent film (11 minutes) so feel free to play whatever Barrett masterpieces you wish. Dominoes (on repeat) is my personal favorite. Enjoy!

"It's an idea, someday...in my tears, my dreams...don't you want to see her proof? Life that comes of no harm...you and I, you and I and dominoes...the day goes by..."

-- from Dominoes by Syd Barrett
