    Rolling Stones, 19th Nervous Breakdowm. “And your father’s still perfecting ways of making sealing wax. You better stop, look around. Here it comes. Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown.”

    Seem to be a lot of sealing wax references. I think Jefferson Airplane used it as well but I can’t find it.

        First, always great to see you here! And here is some irony, when I first heard the term “Sealing wax” ( circa 1965), Thought it was “Ceiling Wax”

    The time has come,” the Walrus said,
