So, Vice magazine has this article about how tripping is on the rise. They say somethinh about an impending "summer of love" 2004. Hallucinogens on the rise. Again. I heard that some big "acid family" just got out of the clink and are hard at work. Locally, mushrooms have been around. Salvia is in the mail. Big things are afoot without a doubt.
Technology is involved too.
The 2004 presidential election.
The collapse of the entertainment industry.
The crappy economy. Belive me, I'm pretty positive, but things are scetchy out there. Makes me glad I don't have any investments to worry about. If I did have extra cash to invest, it would be gold. Lots of gold.
I read Lao Tzu last week. I need to get my hands on a copy of "Story of the eye"
or "Story Of The Eye"
. God, even more pornographic than Henery Miller's "Under The Roofs of Paris". It has something more to it however.
I'm listening to Clem Snide
's "Soft Spot" album. They really feel my mood. Melencholy and happy. DReamy, lazy, depressed.
Back to this "Summer of Love 2004". I've been predicting a similar surge in culture since 2001. It's starting to focus and localize. Spread your memes now!
I'm a toatal snob. I've been temping at the Saks 5th Avenue outlet at Woodbury Commons and don't really talk to anyone. I'll do the whole "this job sucks...I'm looking for a job" with the other temps, but that's it. I just can't relate.
Or don't want to.
A combination of the above job, the weather and the painfully slow evolution of my life has made me fucking depressed lately. I think about suicide. Not seriously
, or that seriously anyway. The world just seems like alot of nonsense these days. I want to cheat, and hit the reset button. Unfortunately, I've come to find out how certain things work...and it doesn't work like that.
I try to see all the goodness hidden within.
It's hard sometimes.
I've been practicing seeing auras again. Primarily by using my perifreial vision and watching myself in the mirror. It's been pretty easy. Colors are appearing beyond the electric-sky blue haze that is closest to the body. I can sense auras around other people, but it takes some concentration to see. I may have seen meridian points too. Centering your vision on the 3rd eye chakra helps.
Saks provided us with dinner tonight because everyone is working late to do inventory. Fried chicken from Wal-Mart, with macaroni salad. That was nice, especially since I was fucking starving. My budget doesn't quite fit in the whole food pyramid. Poor slaves. I forget how lucky I am to be able to have skills to offer, and that working at some bullshit outlet is not my fate.
