Jeffrey Lewis must be one of the funniest anti-folk singers I came across. Not only this song is funny, I think his rules of LSD are great. The psychedelic experience is a great enlightning experience, but it can also be a frightening one if set and setting is not kept. now let’s discover the meaning of life.

Some Japanese grooves visualized by Teppei Maki. I’m seeing some influences from Vince Collins in the DJ Kentaro vid, but of course the original influences are universal.
They tell us that fractals are all around us in nature, but I didn’t know birds could do that. I don’t even know if this counts as some sort of fractal, most probably not, but it certainly looks like one of those old Microsoft Windows screen savers from the 90’s. Only one thousand times more amazing, because it’s all real, and it’s all birds! Quite spectacular!
Yellow Magic Orchestra had a great sense for the psychedelic dimension in the electronic dreams of the late 70’s and early 80’s. And the clip for the track computer games has it all: early computer games, electronically generated images, Kraftwerk and traditional symbols in one mind-blowing trip (to the left).
Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) is an international theatrical collective of anti-authoritarian activists, dressed as soldier-clowns. I sometimes see them in demonstrations in Israel an Palestine, and feel that their protest is the strongest, most effective, non-violent and unstoppable of any other group of protesters on the streets. Even when they get arrested or suffer from police brutality, the images they produce are hilarious, and are a great demonstration of the stupidity of the state and it’s forces. They are psychedelic in their creativity and humor, the direct fluffy assault on people’s conciseness in attempt to broaden and open it.
“Because rebels transform everything – the way they live, create, love, eat, laugh, play, learn, trade, listen, think and most of all the way they rebel.”
Kiss the Police!
“In a world of my own all the flowers would have very extra-special powers/They would sit and talk with me for hours”. Alice only needed to go down a particular rabbit hole and drink that magic potion and she got to the place she wanted.
