"His hair has the long jesuschrist look. He is wearing the costume clothes. But most of all, he now has a very tolerant and therefore withering attitude toward all those who are still struggling in the old activist political ways . . . while he, with the help of psychedelic chemicals, is exploring the infinite regions of human consciousness. "
Tom Wolfe

"I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown. "

I Remember “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test”…DO YOU?


Acid I’ve done,

Never on the run,

Always did it in the sun,

Always as I recall I did have fun,

Though much to my dismay,

No flashbacks have my way come…


Listening to old acid rock,

Cream and Clapton really did sock,

Maybe flashbacks are not really gonna happen,

But listening to the music and remembering the past,

The wings I did have when I took a hit, certainly did start a’ flappen’…


Yes acid I have done,

More times than a hundred and one,

One time I did so & awakened with Hendrix outlined by the sun,

Another I was in a jungle firing rounds out of a machine gun,

There was this really trippy time too; I think I actually did meet of god his son…


Memories of that time are quite spread out and oh so few,

Lying in the grass at Woodstock in the early morning dew,

You don’t want to know about the kangaroo that gave me a butt tattoo,

I really do feel that my promised flashback is way long overdue,

Maybe in reality, dreams are our flashbacks gone totally askew…

You don’t want to know about the kangaroo that gave me a butt tattoo,

On the contrary, this sounds truly fascinating!!

Okay and I know people that did because it was first introduced during Korea but for myself, I had to take too much stuff to stay alive but did like the music at least most of it. Sometimes though I felt like maybe I should have because of some stuff during that time period. Interesting write though Ed. I see where Newsweek said the story was false.
