Just got a morning invite to do shrooms with one of the women I met from the apps.  Most of my shroom experiences have been a trip to hell and back, but I said yes.  Going over in an hour or so.  Weird times ahead...

lol I wish I had done that instead of spiralling into my horrifying mental vortex of unsettling truths.  But the stars embedded upon the fabric above her bed appeared to pulsate in the most delightful way.  It was still a painful journey, but the madness was more controlled.  It was like a more mature take on the usual internal crisis.  There were dogs to help mitigate the anguish.  Also it was really fun/hilarious for maybe half an hour before the spiral.  Anyway, I survived.  There were some insights to take away from it.   Nothing I wasn't already kind of aware of, but it helped crystalize them a little more, for better or worse.

Also FWP: this salted black porter I bought is fucking awful, and her fridge did a piss poor job of keeping them cool.  I abstained from having any while I was there, because I realized I wanted to be able to drive home after my high wore off.

Anybody else having an issue with youtube + adblock, where the ad gets blocked but the video won't load either? It just jams up, and refreshing won't fix it either. It seems to be happening more and more all the time. I'm using safari. It's driving me nuts... would probably waste less time just watching the ads. But I can't let them win.

I'm having a thing where the ads aren't being blocked anymore and my ad blocking app wants me to pay now. Fuck that. I'm using chrome..

Update… 2.5 days to go. 
This week has been loaded with so many micro-aggressions that I’ve lost count. MIL (Mother In-Law) clearly sees me as competition for some unknown reason and is doing so much passive aggressive stuff, it’s absurd. I’ve basically resorted to complete withdrawal as almost anything I say gets  thrown back in my face because she interprets everything I say or do as a threat to her dominance. I could give you a laundry list but it would basically be me giving you all a textbook TLDR.

Two things I will mention:

1) she is pretty much zero help with the baby unless she can weaponize it in some way to try and prove some kind of point (which is usually something completely benign) so we’re having to do more way more work now that she’s visiting

2) she refuses to take off her shoes in the house because she sees it as me being irrational. We don’t have a housekeeper (she does) and my wife doesn’t clean at all so I’m the one who has to sweep/vacuum/clean the floors. Our house is pretty small and the yard is overrun with burrs, foxtails, black dust from the highway and cat shit from about 8 or 9 strays that use our yard as a litter box… oh yeah, and I also saw her walk in some human shit (long story).That all quickly gets all over the floors and ends up in bed on our feet. Please, if you don’t mind, take off your shoes at the front door. Not the most unreasonable request, is it?? Nope. She wears her dirty shoes in and I feel like a dick to have to keep asking politely but to her it’s me being oppressive or something so she either refuses or gives some performative “oh! Whoops! I’m wearing my shoes indoors! I’m breaking all the rules, I guess!” Or something like that. Then she drips water and drops tomato slices on the floor and marches all over them with her dirty shoes and I have to mop the damn floor. That and there are fuckin burrs and grass all over the damn rug. Then the act of me cleaning is interpreted by her as aggressive. WTF?? Someone please shoot me in the damn face please. 
 

What kind of fucking savage wears shoes in the house? That’d warrant the death penalty round mine. 
 

Obvs tricky with your missus not wanting to upset MiL, but fuck, it’s your (plural) house, so totally not unreasonable to have some ground rules. 
 

Also I’m not letting you just gloss over the human shit story.

This thread is making me wanna do shrumes again.  My one experience was way overdosed for a first time and it made for an incredibly weird time so I didn't look back for a long while.  I really miss how introspective and abstract it was while also keeping me hyperaware and grounded to my body.  It was a little too much for a teenager to handle.

Was it "my horrifying mental vortex of unsettling truths" or the bit about it being a painful journey of madness that reawakened your desire to do them again?

I ended up throwing out a pretty substantial soggy shroom pile at the bottom of my tea cup, because I definitely didn't want more and I didn't want one of the dogs to eat it... or the person I was with, because she was more than fucked up enough already.  I mean that in the most endearing way possible, but yeah... no more substances for that lady, if I can have any influence over it.

I feel so drained today.

One of the main things I remember about shrooms was every time I closed my eyes I would see blood dripping down. This particular illusion was consistent every time I did them (maybe 10 times or so, all when I was 15-20). I was too young to be doing that shit and had some pretty scary times, but the scary times mellowed in the end thanks to good tunes (one of the most intense trips I survived by hiding in my bed in the dark listening to Dubnobasswithmyheadman on repeat). A few other times were very good all around - doing them with the right person helps. I wouldn't do them now tho, too much neurosis lol it would probably tip me completely over the edge :crazy: same goes for acid...

 

Spoiler

 

Ahhh fuck. Seriously this still gives me flashbacks. This song IS mushrooms.

Doing it with the right person is probably key.  The only time I did them and didn't completely lose my shit was with my ex at a cabin with a record player.  The cabin was Van Gogh themed, and I was preoccupied with the idea of going mad, since that's what my other shroom experiences were like.  It occurred to me that Gogh is an anagram of my last name, a thought which could have spelled disaster.  But we went to the beach, and I deliberately blocked all thoughts out of my mind, and just focused on the stars/our immediate surroundings.  Then went back to the cabin and put on some live record featuring Jimi Hendrix.  So I just got absorbed in that, which was fantastic.

That song sounds like Pink Floyd, but with Maynard Keenan doing his lullabye voice over top.

Also, weird post shroom experience today - I was driving behind a car with a bumper sticker that said "we're all mad here", which was written on the wall of the room where I spent the majority of my second ever shroom trip.  It was an interesting coincidence.

since the gym has been closed i've been going to the park at 5AM each morning to use the pull-up bars etc. Now that the curfew has been lifted (three days ago) each time i go there there are drunk people hanging out in the park who've clearly been there all night. really harshing the vibe. the sound of morning birds replaced by faded scruffians making growling noises at each other & giggling incessently. this morning a pack of them were listening to the same song on loop the whole time i was there, chanting "insane in the membrance" with heavy qeb accents (they were not listening to insane in the membrane but some other rap song).

luckily the actual gym opens in a week

three days ago the shelter closed because of covid so me and my hobo homies are getting drunk in the park every day. we go there early, like 5AM, so we don't stress out too many people with our substance abuse. where else would we go? anyways, recently the sounds of morning birds have been replaced by this cryptic looking nerd doing pullups nonstop every day, grunting incessently. we all think he's a little nuts so we chant "insane in the membrane" every time he arrives hoping he just goes elsewhere for the day.

luckily the shelter opens again in a week

The family next door are having a shit garden party with shit music way too loud.  I live in Brixton and it's not even the usual reggae and dancehall which would be fine on a sunny day.  It's shit commercial house music and lcd gangsta rap.  Quite tempted to set up my 300w monitors in the garden and blast them some Alice Coltrane.  Any other suggestions for teaching a black family about their correct musical heritage?

was about to fire up the grill to celebrate memorial day by grilling stuff, and discovered there's a mouse living inside it.

do I:

(a) shoot it

(b) turn the grill on high and blast it with flames

(c) poke at it with a stick until it falls out and the dog can get it

(d) leave it and scrap the whole damn plan

if I were drunk right now, I'd probably go with (b). but since I'm sober, I need to think this through more carefully.

I shook the grill a bit, and it ended up running off. BUT it left a bunch of tiny pink rat babies in there in a big disgusting nest. I used some sticks to put the nest on the ground, and now there are several pink mutant babies squirming around in my backyard. I am not a bad person, but I don't know what else I could have done. the big rat is gone, and so it is up to mother nature now to decide. we get a lot of turkey vultures around here, which will no doubt know what to do.

but FFS, now my grilling plan is ruined because no way in hell am I using that thing now.

The solution, then, is obvious.

Then put them back into the grill and make it a rat shelter since you wont use it anymore or put them somewhere warm and feed them until they're mature enough to walk. Then throw them out or something. If you gonna kill them yiu shpuld slice their heads off really quickly, then crush them with a stone or something (don't do that). You're a good guy. Put them back into the grill and build a new grill from stones and just use the grid or use a pan. You did the wrong thing, chastise yourself

I've popped a note through their door with some suggested listening and a link to one of my black music spotify playlists.  Hopefully they'll take it in the way it's intended.
