Psychiatric Explorations of the Ever Enlarging Brain, an unofficial knowledge base of all things related to The Flaming Lips. The Brain was created by a group of fans to provide a resource to collect and distribute knowledge to and from the Flaming Lips fan community. If you have any missing information, corrections, or suggestions please contact us here. The Brain thirsts for more of your show reviews, photos, videos, live recordings, and Lips memorabilia. Please send your contributions here, they will be reviewed and fed to the Brain as soon as possible.

Please note that our downloads, particularly video, are huge files to host and make us hit our Direct Download bandwidth limitations extremely fast, so you may be redirected to the 4shared.com download page for the file and required to log in with a free 4shared account (you can also log in with Google, twitter, or Facebook) to download until our bandwidth resets on the 1st of each month.
