We are all made of stars
Entry 1681 posted in: The Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit
History, as we know it, is the story of royalty and generals and does not contain the memory of the millions who succumbed or who tried to build a normal life.
This also applies to modern popular history. Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett biographies and the so-called Sixties counter-culture studies that have appeared all repeat the memories of a small, nearly incestuous, circle of people who made it, one way or another. You always stumble upon those who have become the royalty and generals of the Underground. Others are less known, the lower rank officers, but still officers.
The rest of this introspective article at the Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit tells the story of Ponji and Pip, who didn't quite make it.
