Back in the ’70s, Sesame Street had a cartoon thing designed to help kids learn to count. It showed a pinball machine with psychedelic pipes and tubes and ramps and such, and the ball went whizzing around to the tune of psychedelic music. It was mesmerising. If that magical cartoon kingdom had a special, emblematic crest, this piece would be it.
