He’s back! The world famous Albert Magoolie is back in town. He claims that all of his years with Pink Floyd have somehow managed to rub off on him, so has set about building himself an outside Music Room. We must say it looks quite spiffing but lord only knows what is going to go on in there!

You may have read elsewhere on this site about the lucky guy who bought Rick Wright’s Kurzweil K2000 Synthesizer. He goes by the name of Chris, and he has been creating some wonderful Floyd sounding songs. Directly above you can listen to a song that Chris has dedicated to Guy Pratt. We think this is well worth a listen!
On The House! We reckon this tribute is unique! Ralph Erthel from Northern New South Wales Australia has taken his dedication to Pink Floyd to new heights. Work is still underway, but after a long hard slog Ralph’s paint job on his house is almost complete. Professional mural painter Guy Crossley helped out on the Animals side of the house. Hard to spot on the photos but the little pics inside the bricks on The Wall side – they’re all Floyd album covers.
There’s a great story behind this Roger Waters signed pic that was sent in by Matt Whittenham. We will let Matt tell it in his own words. Read More (You may have to scroll up or down THIS page in order to read)

David Gilmour’s association with the band Unicorn has not been particularly well documented over the years. Some publicity was given to the relationship late in 2009 when two rare David Gilmour produced albums by Unicorn ‘Blue Pine Trees’ and ‘Too Many Crooks’ were released on CD, but the story of David’s early involvement with them was little known, UNTIL NOW
In Toscana, Italy you can find this great Pink Floyd themed bar where you can enjoy a drink and listen to Pink Floyd. The bar’s owner Riccardo “Roger” Verani is thinking about creating food dedicated to Pink Floyd, so if you happen to be in the Bibbona area in the Province of Livorno call in and say hi to Riccardo and tell him A Fleeting Glimpse sent you.

The above pictures were taken in 1987 at the Montral Forum in Montreal, Quebec.

Jim had spread rolls of film amongst his buddies and shot off another roll, sadly only these few came out.
The above images are actually paintings. With thanks to the artist Asim Rai

Oink Oink! How cool is this??? Michael Teige has sent us some scans of a little item his wife picked up in an antique shop in Snohomish Washington. The oinker has been named Tin Lizzy due to the tin wings she is sporting. Set against an appropriate background, this little piggy would be a welcome addition to any Floyd collection.
This giant sized poster was sent to us by firstname.lastname@example.org It was made for the US release of Sony’s remastered Pink Floyd albums for their 30th anniversary. Storm Thorgerson said Sony used the chair art, despite that the band preferred the “windows” art that was later used for ‘Echoes’.
These blow up chairs were also part of the promotion for Echoes. Thanks Mark Brown

Here’s something you don’t see every day. The sheet of stamps on the left above come from the Republic of Tuva and were issued in 1999. Those on the right come from Kyrgyzstan. These are not official stamps. A private company pays the respective Governments a fee to obtain the rights to print them. In other words, if you put these on a letter, it wouldn’t get delivered. (Tuva stamps kindly contributed by Brent Ingalls)
The above pictures were sent in by Travis Smith. Travis is always on the look out to purchase any vintage Pink Floyd posters, please contact him if you can help.

The Will Taber Ticket Tangle
Press cuttings for David’s self titled album and Rick’s ‘Wet Dream’ DOWNLOAD
I missed a Roger Waters concert in London in 2002 due to an illness. About a year or two later Jeff Beck played in Portsmouth (my home town). I managed to meet him back stage and got him to sign my Amused To Death album cover. I actually spoke to him about the recording as well. anyway about six months after that I wrote to Roger's Manager and took a gamble sending the signed amused to death album and the unused ticket from in the flesh tour 2002. A few months later I got it all sent back signed, plus a photo signed to me as well. It came through the door when I was going through a really bad time and it just put the biggest smile on my face. Its really nice for someone that huge and big in rock and roll to take the time to do something like that.
