Some things are simply bound together in existential union: peanut butter and jelly; movies and popcorn; Tango and Cash; Kid 'n Play. Often, these pairings are so seamless and sublime that we struggle to imagine one without the other. Of all the combinations in the special effects and rock 'n' roll pantheon, there is but one couple that is forever bound, and therefore will always exist in arenas, observatories and theaters across the globe: Pink Floyd and lasers. Tripping out mushroom-poppers and acid-droppers without fail for 23 years, Paramount's LaserSpectacular Featuring the Music of Pink Floyd is the ultimate achievement in the field of rock-themed laser shows. In fact, I defy you to name just one other such show. At a mere $30, LaserSpectacular is easily more affordable than the dimebag you bought from "Fast" Eddie when you saw Floyd at Vanderbilt in '94. By the way, he goes by "Mentally Instable" Eddie now, and that dimebag you bought was oregano.
