Mastodon – Dry Bone Valley

Maybe a bit on the satanic side.

Arise Chapter 01 – Instructions

30 Jan

One of the most psychedelic and ingenious videos in the history of the internet (Even though it was created before the web,  for video tapes). Ivan Stang, founder of the Church of the SubGenius directed this wildly ingenious video clip.

It is interesting to note, that many of the effects of the video tape, according to the speaker are similar if not identical to those of psychedelic substances. However, the tone itself is much more commanding and sinister than that usually associated with psychedelics.

The video looks like some kind of parody on mind control and hallucinations, but what I find to be the most hilarious is the name “Church of the SubGenius”, created intentionally in order to become semantically ossified and for people to start using it and say that they are “part of Church of the SubGenius”  without thinking about what the actual meaning is of the name is…

And here is another one…

Theater of the Mind – Duff Hendrickson

28 Jan

Duff Hendrickson started making psychedelic films in the 1970s and has been active ever since. “The Theater of the Mind” is a highly surreal, highly psychedelic into the innerspace on the human mind, where Hendrickson finds very bizzare phenomena.

A Trip To The Moon

27 Jan

Georges Méliès’ 1901 classic Le Voyage dans la Lune is a psychedelic adventure. Even more so with color and set to AIR’s new song Sonic Armada.

Some may say mathematics is the language of nature, I tend to believe that mathematics is the language of our human mind.

Did you ever feel like psychedelics help you tap in to the operating system of your mind? why do we all suddenly recognize the patterns of clouds as fractals? where do all these spirals come from? and what do all these numbers mean?

Ah… and glittery glue!!

R.E.M Music videos

23 Jan

It was some surprise for me to find out that the music videos to  two of R.E.M’s most well-known singles from the 90’s have a somewhat psychedelic style to them.

Both of them have hallucinatory qualities to them, but I especially like how the beautiful video for “Losing My Religion” has the feeling that it takes place inside someone’s mind. The things that the imagery does to the watcher’s imagination… I guess that’s the sort of thing that Terrence McKenna said about it that “There is a transcendental dimension beyond language…”.

I would also recommend to watch them without the sound, especially the first one. The images can speak for themselves.

“Ambling Alp” by Yeasayer

22 Jan

This clip to Yeasayer’s “Ambling Alp” reminds me strongly of the work of Alejandro Jodorowsky.
