I’veContinue reading “No-Nut Level: God Mode Activated”

Switching Psychedelics: From Cannabis to Reading

Terrence McKenna remarked that he once quit Cannabis and “..took up reading in the evenings.” I am making this same switch, having realized that the worst effect of Cannabis – beyond its dampening of the dopamine receptors – is that I don’t read when I am high. Not that I haven’t enjoyed reading ‘Don Quixote‘Continue reading “Switching Psychedelics: From Cannabis to Reading”

Artistry: Yung Lean ‘Agony’ Lyrics and Story

Wow. What a song. It reminds me of when I was 23 and I discovered Beirut. The talent is just that real. Realer. I’m older, deeper; I’m a more discerning curator.
