Blotter Barn

I am so there…what a great museum trip would be…figuratively or literally…

Blotter Barn.

I met the proprieter, incidentally, in a long gone age…

Enjoyed the heck outa the Hip Forums.  Definitely will spend a bunch more time THERE if I can squeeze some out of a day.  A fellow named PB Smith posted this entertaining, even if somewhat disturbing, list there a few years back…I reran it with a few small grammatical changes and added some responses.   (Italicised commentary from me follows each list item.)

1 Don’t even bother trying to explain to the nice police officer why you were driving into oncoming traffic. With your lights off. And no, holding a flashlight out the window does not count as headlights. (Why would headlights even matter once you’re in “driving to the opposite direction the street is flowing its traffic towards” territory? More importantly, what the fuck are you doing in a car behind its wheel while on a road in the first place if you have a head full of LSD? My hard, absolute rule is ‘do not drive on drugs’ – ESPECIALLY psychedelics, even if you have somehow managed to develop an adeptness for keeping the ‘hallucinarea’ away from the car and road in spatial reality, and out of the temporal zone representing the time it takes to drive where you’re going.  Besides the obvious fact that not everyone can do this as well as they might think, there is ALSO FAR too much NORMAL SHIT involving cars, cops and things going wrong with them that can screw up your trip at best and kill you and/or other persons at worst — with a whole spectrum of prison flavoured badness inbetween.  Use your head and plan your trip so that driving motor vehicles is not involved, or you will be a poor example to persons who distrust drugs and all persons who use them. Driving on hallucinogens is STUPID, no matter how good a driver OR  a tripper you are.  Got it? I chose to never even get a license or ever own a car, as a responsibility ethic.)

2 Don’t try to pick that zit on your face. It probably isn’t real. (And if it IS real, you’ll turn it into a major staph magnet.  Ugh.  It’ll look like a hallucination from hell when you are not on anything, and plus be dangerous to your health since most staph is antibiotic resistant now.)

3. Don’t go to the store to buy some of the new drink, Swill, that you just saw advertised on Saturday Night Live. (Never heard of it.  I would stick to drinks you are familiar with.  The last trip I ever got to take with a partner was over a decade ago; we were both reading the Dune books by Frank Herbert, and decided to make a fluid representing melange to drink after we dosed…made from cinnamon mixed with coffee and powdered chocolate.  This was because the Spice was supposed to taste cinnamonish.  This coffee might have been good at another time, but in a tiny espresso sized cup.  We drank a HUGE glass of it and got all barfy.  Thankfully we didn’t lose our blots before they had us lost in them. )   ///…maudlin nostalgia pseudo-flashback for about 15 seconds…///

4. Don’t try to light your farts–especially if you have a really hairy ass. (Oh come on, don’t do this, no matter how hairy the ass and/or how hairy the acid. It’s puerile.)

5. Don’t try to make a “lemon chocolate milkshake” by mixing lemon juice, milk, and chocolate ice cream in a blender. Lemon juice makes milk curdle. (Didn’t know that.  File under “nothing I’d think to try no matter what I was on” – but it’s interesting.)

6. Don’t forget to put the lid on the blender when you try to make a lemon chocolate milkshake. (Or if you are making popcorn, remember that without the lid, you have Mount Vesuvius in your kitchen, and while the eruption will be fun to see, the popcorn won’t be edibly clean, and you’ll have to sweep it up the next morning after.  There are better paths to acidic volcanic events… speaking of which comes the next item…)

7. Don’t keep laughing while having sex with someone who isn’t on acid. (I could write for years about sex on acid because I am better at it than anyone in the entire world – this is no joke – and it was my absolute favourite thing to do in life, ever. It still would be if I had acid, and someone to have sex with. Time does what Time does, tho’… I’m an old lady now, so I need not elabourate on what THAT means sexwise…and since acid’s only available if you’re in Europe or Russia now,  I dun’ think I’ll ever get to ‘Do My Thing’ again. But I did it enough in my youth for seven lives…and the memories did not get old nor can the DEA take them away…so I still get LOADS of joy on a daily basis from each and every sex trip I took…and there were lots! But it is a communication breakdown waiting to happen if you try to do it with someone who ain’t There if you are There yourself!!!unless you are REALLY close to your partner and s/he REALLY ‘gets’ the acid-sex experience, but just doesn’t happen to be doing it at the same time you are.  Otherwise, either both do it, or go solo – deep out/down/up/into the Xenodimensional Realms…but don’t masturbate.  Just lie flat and don’t move, then sway back and forth slowly for a while and then I guarantee, if you trust in the Powers That Be, both in You and in the Drug, you WILL make love to the Gods, angels, demons, fairies, aliens, fantastic perfect lords, princesses, or other Beautiful Uber-personas – or your own Self.  Sometimes all at once…)

8. Don’t try filling a glass water bottle with butane, and then blowing into it when it doesn’t look like it is lit. The blue flame can be almost invisible. Eyebrows grow back slowly. (This is the sort of activity made for glue sniffers.  You are better than that….right?  Skip it.)

9. Don’t think you can jump over your friend’s Ford Pinto, even if he is only going 20 mph. It’s LSD, not Superman Juice. (See #1.)

10. Don’t try to make homemade fireworks by pouring 1 1/2 pounds of black gunpowder into a coffee can and lighting it on the 4th of July. Sure, it makes an awesome tower of flame that is higher than a two storey house, but the police show up soon afterwards. (This seems like something that a meth-lab monkey cooking speed in a moving vehicle, in the back of a van, would do. Not an ‘enlightenable’ tripper who can see/feel/hear their own mind learning how to do a thing while it is being learned…for one of a zillion examples.  What tripper would need to make explosions in a coffee can? Answer: one who is not on LSD, obviously.)

Now, I know less than nothing about sports, but it would appear that former San Diego Padres pitcher Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter on a weekend when he’d had quite a few more than no ‘hits’ himself – but rather than the steroids that baseball players usually opt for if they are interested in chemical additives, he was in the midst of a quite powerful and protracted LSD trip.

I can’t imagine being able to do this myself…but then again, I suck at sports. For a pro ball player, it’s probably a lot more doable. (Animated by New York artists No Mas.)

This dude probably should have taken anything but alcohol, apparently.

I saw a question asked at Plinky, a blogger’s springboard service, which asked: “What’s the best theme park you’ve ever been to?”, which reminded me of this. I answered “LSD”.

When it then asked me to qualify my answer, I wrote the following:

If you’ve ever been to “Park Psychedelic” yourself, you won’t even need me to qualify this answer.  You already have your “E” ticket on this one.  (Or your “L” ticket, more like…)

Of course, there are  lots of people come to Park Psychedelic and go straight to the equivalent of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, or the original Willy Wonka Chocolate Riverbooat, and decide – naturally – they will never come back.

It’s not all scary like that, though, and the parts that are scary tend to be a lot less so if you manage to keep hold of the thought that it’s all just an amusement park ride. It’s an altered state. You will come back from it. It’s an irreal adventure produced by your mind at the behest of a drug.

I am not posting this to be excessively irreverent about an experience that ought not to be thought of as just another party drug adventure. It’s because this is information that might actually help someone quell a bad trip before it lands them in the hospital. The hospital is one place you don’t ever want to be in on acid.

The mantra:

“It’s only a bad dream. It’s only a movie. It’s just a bad amusement park ride. It’s only a drug.”

It would be hard to read this and still try to deny LSD has positive potential.

Whatever you think of Macintoshes, or Apple Computer as it exists nowadays, it’s a fact that the first Macs are pretty much what brought computers, graphical user interfaces and people into contact with one another. Windows and Linux then followed suit. So the computer you are likely reading this on was initially invented by someone who not only has tripped on acid, but calls that experience one of the few really important things to ever happen to him.

I have to wonder if Steve Jobs ever had any contact with Timothy Leary, who shifted his focus from LSD to computers at least in the public eye after he got out of prison in the 1970s.
