A Shocking Expose

Old ZC character Pasquale wrote:

I first met you in Berkeley or Oakland with Alan Watts. This was at someone's house, they had a little stream into a pond on the side of the house. Alan just walked inside to prepare for a lecture and you went behind some bushes and pissed in the stream while your buddy recorded the sounds of the stream and your pissing. Later, he included that sounds at the beginning of a recorded lecture of Alan Watts. I can't remember if that was 1970 or 1967. I met Alan at his houseboat in 1967, I can't remember which year, but this is true. Absolutely, true.
