Captain Fripp, can I speak with you a minute, sir? Well… it’s just… Captain, when I signed up to be a psychedelic sailor, I don’t think I expected… you know, this!
I mean, growing up, like any kid I’d sneak down to the docks, and all the boys did it. We’d avoid the sewing and cleaning so we could hear all about the tales of brave Ulysses or maybe, now and then, the Sunshine Superman. But here on The Crimson King… gosh darn it, Captain, all I do is mend the sails and swab the deck! And Captain, that jellyfish residue stings!
Look, I understand that you approach things a little differently on your ship, and I do respect that, really. I’m not trying to mutiny against your very strict code or work ethic. I’m just asking if maybe, instead of sitting in your cabin reading obscure Jesuit philosophy all day, you could just… I don’t know, maybe take a left? Or even a right? Captain, do we really have to stay right behind the jellyfish all the time just because of your stupid system of… why are you going to the cabinet now?
No, no, Captain Fripp, you don’t need to get out the cat o’nine tails. I’ll get back to swabbing. Thank you, thank you sir. Thanks for listening. And for deciding not to whip me like I was Greg Lake. Please don’t tell first mate Belew I was in here.
Wear this shirt: when making a peanut butter sandwich.
Don’t wear this shirt: as a kilt. The MacJellies are very, very, very protective of their tartan colors.
This shirt tells the world: “Do they still make Spelljammer?”
We call this color: Starfish And Bible Black
