Fuck Reality

“It is a widely accepted fact that cannabis (…and other great hallucinogens) have been linked numerous times to allowing people everywhere; from writers, to artists, and even amongst the most advent doodlers as being a smooth gateway to better and more insightful pieces of art. So take your brush of choice and blow some minds… this is Stoner Art.”

Watch this image for 45 seconds and then avert your eyes to surrounding objects to see an effect. It is amazing how the perception of reality aided by something so subjective such as eye sight can seem complete and absolute, when, in all reality, our comprehension of reality is augmented daily by illusion and mere ignorance of object. After taking a mind-altering substance such as peyote, lsd, or mushrooms many proclaim that they are accepting of a more diverse selection of activities than prior to the experience. Simply, things are not as we see them, and we must always take a skeptical point of view to combat the lingering presence of underlying ulterior motive.

Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane

“Hippies and flower children of the 60’s would always describe one sick beat of any nature as being “Groovy” or “Far out”. We feel the same way. It doesn’t matter if it’s guitar, bass, violin, piano, ukulele, anything! This is the beats that intoxicate our brains, blow our minds, and really send us …well… Far out man.”

Grace Slick is an American icon who enchanted us with her voice during her years as a lead singer of Jefferson Airplane and later Starship. Her voice is extremely powerful and epitomizes psychedelic rock for me. Grace holds the prestigious rank #20 on VH1’s 100 greatest women of rock and roll. I found this interview with her to be particularly interesting because of her attempt to lace Nixon’s tea with LSD. It’s too bad that she was thwarted by White House security, as Nixon on acid would have definitely been a sight to see.

In case you somehow haven’t heard of Jefferson airplane, here’s one of their most famous songs, white rabbit. A song which Grace reported to have written in an hours time. Another song that you probably have heard at least once is “Somebody to Love,” an equally catchy tune. Grace also held the record for the oldest female vocalist on a Billboard hot 100 chart topping single, with the song “We Built This City.” The song ranked #1 in 1985, right after Grace’s 46th birthday.

Placebo – Meds

“Half-baked is probably one if not the greatest Stoner movies of all time and we believe this category is best summed up by the great, talented, and verbose Jon Stewart.
Enhancement Smoker (Jon Stewart): “Did you ever see Scent of a Woman?”
Scarface: “Yup.”
Enhancement Smoker: “You ever seen Scent of a Woman… on weed? That’s the way to see it. It’s just wacked.”
That is what this is, high movies or shows. Not necessarily ratings or anything like that, but movies or shows… well … high.”

Placebo is a band that some of you might be familiar with, they had a single a while back called “Every You Every Me” that was pretty popular. This particular video, “Meds”, is one that delves into the psychotropic world of LSD. The part with the microphone always geeks me out a little bit, but overall the song is catchy and trippy. Two things that I can definitely continue to watch.
