A Mind-Blowing Weekend

A friend brought over a movie he was sure I'd like this Saturday and he couldn't have been more dead on! I'm a fan of the obscure and strange and a 1976 fantsy musical pornography of Alice in Wonderland couldn't be better suited for me.
It is X-Rated so don't try to watch this if your not a fan of some extreme close ups and 70's bush. If you don't mind that then this is definitely an interesting film!

The second mind blower was the book, Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstader. Originally published in 1979 it's a massive 700+ page work dedicated to exploring the patterns and symbols in the thinking of mathematician Kurt Godel, artist M.C. Escher, and composer Johann Sebastian Bach. My friend left his copy at my place and I only had to read the 20 page preface before I ran to Amazon to order myself a copy. I'll review it in full once finished (probably a while from now!) Has anyone else read/heard of it? I was really surprised I hadn't!
