On Acid is a 100-page field report on psychedelics, drugs and drug culture, compiling research from the Acid Age blog and new interviews with notable contributors to contemporary psychedelic culture: Hamilton Morris, Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe, and Arik Roper.

MAPS is a non-profit research and educational organization that helps scientists design, fund and obtain regulatory approval for studies of the safety and effectiveness of a number of controlled substances. Included in MAPS' efforts are research on MDMA for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, LSD and psilocybin for the treatment of opiate addiction, and alternate delivery systems for marijuana such as vaporizers
and water pipes.

Give acid to someone you love this Christmas. And help support scientifically-controlled research in controlled-substance therapy.

Codine, no liquor
Man life is a bitch, mine is a gold digger
I'm fucked, let's fuck
She said she on her period, I said yuck
I called another bopper, I beat it like a copper
Two big chain, one big chopper bitch

"WHATEVEREST is a documentary about the unlikely inspiration behind a dance tune produced by Todd Terje called "Inspector Norse". "Inspector Norse" is the internet alias of Marius Solem Johansen, a failed musician living in a small town, producing dance videos and drug recipes for YouTube."

"Inspector Norse is a guy on Youtube. He has made hundreds of dance videos. Among all those videos, there was a clip on how to make a drug. A drug he calls the 'Inspector Norse Special.' It was something about legal chemicals, freezing them, all this fancy stuff. I was just so fascinated by this Inspector Norse, so I decided to dedicate my next song to him." - Todd Terje

"When Marianne Faithfull slipped into the coma that almost killed her-- the result of taking 150 Tuinals in a hotel room in Australia-- she had a vision that Brian Jones, just six days in the ground, was beckoning her over a cliff. He leapt; at the last minute she decided to stay. When she opened her eyes in a hospital room six days later, Mick said, 'Marianne, we thought we'd lost you.' In that milky voice that was already starting to curdle, the first thing she said to him was, 'Wild horses couldn't drag me away.'"




"If my main theme throughout my writing is, "Can we consider the universe real, and if so, in what way?" my secondary theme would be, "Are we all humans?"

Here a machine does not imitate a human being, but instead fakes evidence of a human being, a given human being. Fakery is a topic which absolutely fascinates me; I am convinced that anything can be faked, or anyhow evidence pointing to any given thing. Spurious clues can lead us to believe anything they want us to believe.

There is really no theoretical upper limit to this. Once you have mentally opened the door to reception of the notion of fake, you are ready to think yourself into another kind of reality entirely. It's a trip from which you never return. And, I think, a healthy trip... unless you take it too seriously."

–Philip K. Dick

'So I said to one of these guys, a horn player, “Jesus, how do you look so good every day?” And he pulled his coat back and reached into his waistcoat pocket and said, “You take one of these, you smoke one of those.” Best bit of advice. He gave me a little white pill, a white cross, and a joint. This is how we do it: you take one of these and you smoke one of these.'

'Post-acid was the prevailing mood at Redlands on a cold February morning in 1967. Post-acid: everybody arrives back with their feet on the ground, so to speak, and you’ve been with them all day, doing all kinds of nuts things and laughing your head off; you’ve gone for walks on the beach and you’re freezing cold and you’re not wearing any shoes and you’re wondering why you’ve got frostbite.'

'We had become a pirate nation, moving on a huge scale under our own flag, with lawyers, clowns, attendants.'

'Cold turkey in paradise, par for the course.'

'Marlon would not normally have let in any policemen, but they were dressed as waiters.'
