These may include the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, gurus like Marshall McLuhan, Douglas Adams and Timothy Leary, Nesmith's early and important forays into country-rock, the films of Fellini, his infidelities, his fraught relationship with his mother (who invented Liquid Paper), his paintings and visual art, his lifelong practice of Christian Science, “Celebrity Psychosis,” and his work as a pioneering video producer. Nesmith's “Popclips” concept (and later program) is often credited with inspiring a little cable channel called MTV.
The date 17 62 was given here in three different renditions of Jefferson's Autobiography. I have edited it to 17 72 for the following reasons: The date is inconsistent with "...was considered at our session of the spring of 1773 as demanding attention." Any incident over ten years in the past would have been of little interest, even to the House of Burgesses. Though the vice-admiralty courts were established throughout the colonies shortly after the French and Indian War, I was unable to locate any specific incident concerning a court of inquiry in Rhode Island in 1762. The Gaspee affair, in 1772, did result in a special court of inquiry, charged with the authority that Jefferson describes here.
Dali, in typical self-congratulatory style, said he devoted “ 14 implacable hours a day ” for four months to writing the novel “because if I had not written it another would have done it . . . and badly.” While Dali’s autobiography was fiction masquerading as truth, Hidden Faces was truth masquerading as fiction. In a prophetic scene, a defeated Hitler sits alone in the Eagle’s Nest of Berchtesgaden, surrounded by “ the greatest art treasures in the world ,” listening to Wagner and raving against the Jews and Jesus Christ.
