I used to have an Elton John flourescent poster in my closet when I was a kid. Just sayin.

Remember Elton John played the Pinball Wizard in Tommy? Guess Who had the black-light poster of him as the Pinball Wizard in his closet when he was a kid? Pass the bong please. (photo © Ian Cox)

Rumor has is that there will be a line of Faile bongs out in time for Christmas. (photo © Ian Cox)

Naturally, the show opening was catered. This woman in a colorful cat-suit was offering flourescent Doritos and dip. (photo © Ian Cox)
