Dogs doing lists #2: Memories of Altamont
- Dogs extracting a knife from a concert victim’s lung, eliciting a tinny, resigned sigh of “I can’t get no satisfaction” as it deflates.
- Dogs donning a rubber LBJ mask before disrobing to frolic in the mud, explaining, “Without censorship, things can get terribly confused in the public mind.”
- Dogs observing to their comrade after Pete Townsend bludgeons Abbie Hoffman off the stage, “Violence is the purest form of expression.”
- Dogs pausing to scrape an eyeball from their steel-toe boot as “Midnight Rambler” crescendos.
- Dogs stuffing an addled, shivering Keith Richards into a bloated hippie corpse, muttering, “This may smell bad, kid, but it’ll keep you warm.”
- Dogs lumbering indifferently across the stage, their footfalls clomping over the silent crowd, carrying a door emblazoned with the word “PIG” written in Sharon Tate’s blood.
- Dogs kissing Bellatrix Lestrange full on the mouth before jointly casting Avada Kedavra on a whimpering Wavy Gravy.
- Dogs narrating a documentary on the 60s, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world,” and pausing to reflexively froth at the mouth as the camera pans over a nude Bond girl emerging from the ocean.
- Dogs looking skyward as the Grateful Dead flee for their lives and Richard Nixon’s face floats overhead, blocking the sun and shuddering its jowls.
- Dogs driving a VW bus into a crowd of Merry Pranksters and screaming out the back, “It’s the 80s!”
