Secrets, Los Angeles


Everywhere there were drying racks full of meat. The air was clear and beautiful with a living light that was everywhere. All around the circle, feeding on the green, green grass, were fat and happy horses; and animals of all kinds were scattered all over the green hills. (Black Elk, 1932)


Drug misuse is not a disease, it is a decision, like the decision to step out in front of a moving car. You would call that not a disease but an error of judgment.
(Philip K. Dick)


"Woe to you, my Princess, when I come...you shall see who is the stronger, a gentle little girl who doesn't eat enough or a big wild man who has cocaine in his body." (Sigmund Freud to Martha Bernays, 2 June 1884)


Kabbalah cult member Lindsay Lohan, 21, had sex in the public bathroom of the Cirque Lodge drug rehab facility in Utah, with married musician Tony Allen, 39, of the band Dead Stays Alive. His wife, Stephanie Allen, a British multi-million pound heiress, and mother of his 8 month old twins, has filed for divorce. Between you and fellow Kabbalah member Paris Hilton, I don’t know who is worse with the home wrecking. The cult did a great mind job on you lot.

crack wars

"Crack Wars. In an altogether uncanny manner, the polemics surrounding drugs historically became a War only when crack emerged. At this moment, drugs acquired the character of political question. Routinely associated with subversion, drugs, by means of crack, were escalated to the threat of revolution and a technological articulation of racial difference. Security was upped; civil liberties went down. Crack lost its specificity as merely one drug among others. As synecdoche of all drugs, crack illuminates an internal dimension of polemos – opening the apocalyptic horizon of the politics of drugs."

The Drug Series: Ketamine


"where does addiction begin?"

"Edward Glover showed that anything could serve as a drug, and moreover Lacan was very explicit when he excluded drug addicts from the psychoanalytic scene, perhaps wrongly, given Freud's impressive though officially discarded texts on cocaine. But Glover showed that anything could serve as a drug, including, we could add, work, the "workaholic" syndrome, or athletic training, or piano practice, and anything that involves repetition, need, lack. I don't mean that a new characteristic of drugs as drugs is emerging - on the contrary, drugs respond to an internal appeal that is probably already present in all of us. One of my questions is: why are we equipped with receptors, as if built for drugs? In other words, we are all potentially subject to addiction, constructed as we are according to addictive qualities of attachment and need. What I find interesting are not only the abyssal nuances of desires, urges, or destructive jouissance, but also those of the seductiveness of technology and the often crushing ethos of work."
