In party of the greatest athletic accomplishment by a guy on a psychedelic journey, No Mas as well as artist James Blagden happily present the animated story of Dock Ellis' famous LSD no-hitter. In the previous couple of years we have actually heard all way too much about efficiency enhancing drugs from greenies to tetrahydrogestrinone, and not enough concerning efficiency preventing medicines. If our analysis of the records of professional athletes like Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, as well as Barry Bonds has to be revised downwards with an asterisk, we submit that Dock Ellis record deserves a gigantic exclamation point. Of the 263 no-hitters ever included the Large Leagues, we could only think the number of were assisted by steroids, but we can say without doubt that only one was ever thrown on acid.

Unfortunately, the great Dock Ellis passed away last December at 63. A year before, radio manufacturers Donnell Alexander as well as Neille Ilel, had actually taped an interview with Ellis in which the previous Pirate right hander provided a moment by minute account of June 12, 1970, the day he no-hit the San Diego Padres. Alexander and also Ilels initial 4 min piece appeared March 29, 2008 on NPRs Weekend America. When we came across that piece this past June, Blagden and Isenberg were inspired to develop a brief animated movie around the original audio.

No Mas Presents: Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden

In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas and artist James Blagden proudly present the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter. In the past few years we've heard all too much about performance enhancing drugs from greenies to tetrahydrogestrinone, and not enough about performance inhibiting drugs. If our evaluation of the records of athletes like Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, and Barry Bonds needs to be revised downwards with an asterisk, we submit that that Dock Ellis record deserves a giant exclamation point. Of the 263 no-hitters ever thrown in the Big Leagues, we can only guess how many were aided by steroids, but we can say without question that only one was ever thrown on acid.

Sadly, the great Dock Ellis died last December at 63. A year before, radio producers Donnell Alexander and Neille Ilel, had recorded an interview with Ellis in which the former Pirate right hander gave a moment by moment account of June 12, 1970, the day he no-hit the San Diego Padres. Alexander and Ilels original four minute piece appeared March 29, 2008 on NPRs Weekend America. When we stumbled across that piece this past June, Blagden and Isenberg were inspired to create a short animated film around the original audio.
