IDIOMS

Dietetic Idiomatic Schematic
"The title is a fancy way of saying “chart of food idioms.” This is the latest comic from John Atkinson at Wrong Hands.
I see a glaring omission right off: Easy As Pie, which is my favorite flavor of pie.
However, if he had actually used a piece of pie, there would be enough idioms to make a complete chart with pie alone.
I supposed that would be a pie chart."

CINEMA

You Are What You Eat
"is a 1968 American counterculture semi-documentary movie that attempts to capture the essence of the 1960s flower power hippie era
and the Haight-Ashbury scene. The film features locally known personalities including well known and somewhat mythical pot dealer Super Spade
and musicians of the day including Tiny Tim, David Crosby and Peter Yarrow etc. and radio disc jockey, Rosko."

(Wikipedia)

You are what you eat - 1:10:31
"'You Are What You Eat' is a strange, psychedelic and convoluted film, as incoherent as its hippy brethren 200 Motels (1971) and Rainbow Bridge (1972).
It belongs with that small collection of movies in which more people own the soundtrack than have actually seen the film. The soundtrack is phenomenal. The bright yellow cover is as eccentric as the vinyl itself that features audio cut-ups, squealing Moog synthesizers, relentless psychedelic improvisations, lounge music, Tiny Tim oddities, and the final appearance of The Hawks before they changed their name to The Band.
The list of those involved with the film is an incredible roster of counter culture heroes and weirdos. Tiny Tim, The Electric Flag, Frank Zappa, Peter Yarrow, Paul Butterfield, Super Spade, David Crosby, Hamsa El Din, Barry McGuire, the radio personality Rosko and several others. And despite the talent involved the film is incredibly difficult to track down in any format other than a blurry, seventh-generation, chopped up version that most likely will get trapped in your VCR.
