The Mind-Benders: LSD and the Hallucinogens (1970)

The Mind – Benders: Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and the Hallucinogens, ca. 1970. This film explores the history of hallucinogenic drugs, and specifically the effects and therapeutic uses of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Combining graphics that suggest a hallucinogenic experience, snippets of interviews with users (who explain their reasons for taking the drug) and doctors, and taped sessions of research with volunteers, the film delves into the destructive as well as possible positive uses of the drug. – Archive.com

Grunge Revival

  • “You can feel the angst and hear the sounds of grunge music as soon as you put on the Men’s Grunge Guy Costume. The 90s were the era of Generation X – teens who distrust corporate America, politicians and reject rules. The Grunge Guy costume replicates the wardrobe of 90s youth. It includes a black skully cap with an attached blonde wig; a long sleeved shirt with an attached flannel shirt. The shirt says, “Grunge Lives.” Wear this costume with torn jeans and black boots or work boots.”
  • “March to the beat of your own drum! This great costume includes a black and red striped shirt, a black beanie style hat, and a blonde wig. Guaranteed to have the party goers flashing’ back to the 90s this Halloween! 3-Piece set. Hand wash. Polyester….”
  • Ozzy Hates God Hates Fags
  • “The rumors are true! We’ve married two of life’s most tastiest foods… Bacon & Chocolate. We start with hickory smoked bacon and it’s cooked in the oven until golden & crispy then we smother it in our special blend of chocolate, to give you a taste sensation like nothing else you’ve ever had before.”
  • “Within a complex web of ideologies, most of today’s armed radicals are linked by self-described Patriot beliefs, which emphasize resistance to tyranny by force of arms and reject the idea that elections can fix what ails the country. Among the most common convictions is that the Second Amendment — the right to keep and bear arms — is the Constitution’s cornerstone, because only a well-armed populace can enforce its rights. Any form of gun regulation, therefore, is a sure sign of intent to crush other freedoms. The federal government is often said in militia circles to have made wholesale seizures of power, at times by subterfuge. A leading grievance holds that the 16th Amendment, which authorizes the federal income tax, was ratified through fraud.”
  • Owen took no prisoners in the 42-page fake thesis, and used graphs and criteria from “athletic ability” to “size” to rank her partners. “Points were given for extremely amusing actions, great personalities, quotes, sexts, good senses of humor, or simply dirty talk, and were removed if no noises of enjoyment or talk of any kind was present,” Owen wrote. “In other words, how entertained I was.”
  • “The 16-year-old performer earns more per gig than established acts like Sheryl Crow ($146,500), Weezer ($150,000), and Bret Michaels ($64,000). Bieber, though, does not command as much as Rascal Flatts ($702,500), Kiss ($500,000), or Keith Urban ($487,500). A review of dozens of concert contracts shows that Bieber outearns all of his young contemporaries, banking twice as much as Drake ($155,000), three times that of Disney star Selena Gomez ($100,000), and four times as mush as “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks ($75,000).”
  • “In the same era, American hospitals began circumcising infants as a pre-emptive strike against future self-abuse. The procedure was no more prompted by hygiene than graham crackers or corn flakes were invented to relieve constipated geezers. Such bland high-fiber foods, Sylvester Graham and John Harvey Kellogg theorized, would dampen a boy’s lustful enthusiasms. Dr. Kellogg, a respected sex educator who had a sexless marriage and a fetish for enemas, advocated the circumcision of incorrigible adolescent masturbators, without anesthetic, for its “salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment.” Alternatively, a boy’s penis could be stitched into his foreskin with silver sutures; for girls, Kellogg suggested a touch of carbolic acid to the clitoris. Cheerio.”
  • At the height of the Cold War, the CIA launched a highly classified, top secret research program that exposed Americans to biological agents, hallucinogenic drugs and psychological techniques aimed at mastering the art of mind control. Entire cities in America were contaminated with bacteria, exposing millions to germ warfare. NGC’s CIA Secret Experiments examines what happened, shedding light on its research to better understand the extent and full reach of its disturbing experiments.
  • For 70 years the Parisian apartment had been left uninhabited, under lock and key, the rent faithfully paid but no hint of what was inside.
  • No more nooses will swing from the rafters at an Old West museum where a tourist almost accidentally hanged himself.
  • Over the past four years roughly a million immigrants have been incarcerated in dangerous detention facilities in our taxpayer-financed private prison system. A growing number of news reports and investigations confirm that for many of the people funneled into this system, it is a living nightmare. Children were abused, women were raped, and men died from lack of basic medical attention. These facilities are run by two Wall Street-backed companies that actively promote the criminalization and incarceration of immigrants in the United States -the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the GEO Group.
  • I make a living buying and selling used books. I browse the racks of thrift stores and library book sales using an electronic bar-code scanner. I push the button, a red laser hops about, and an LCD screen lights up with the resale values. It feels like being God in his own tiny recreational casino; my judgments are sure and simple, and I always win because I have foreknowledge of all bad bets. The software I use tells me the going price, on Amazon Marketplace, of the title I just scanned, along with the all-important sales rank, so I know the book’s prospects immediately. I turn a profit every time.
  • “It’s really not plant food and the packages are clearly marked not for human consumption,” North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Chief Toxicologist Dr. Ruth Winecker said. “They are either taking it as a tablet orally or it comes as a powder and they’re snorting it.” Related Content Story: 911 caller spotted bodies night before Story: Bodies found on fire escape The common street names for the Mephedrone include drone, meow-meow, bubbles, and bounce.
  • Perpetual war is in the military and Pentagon’s blood — and they’re ready to face down the commander-in-chief to make it continue.
  • “Findings suggest that pubic hair styles are diverse and that it is more common than not for women to have at least some pubic hair on their genitals. In addition, total pubic hair removal was associated with younger age, being partnered (rather than single or married), having looked closely at one’s own genitals in the previous month, cunnilingus in the past month, and more positive genital self-image and sexual function.”
  • “In the same way you can never go backward to a slower computer, you can never go backward to a lessened state of connectedness”
  • “Other Christian leaders have said practicing yoga is incompatible with the teachings of Jesus. Pat Robertson has called the chanting and other spiritual components that go along with yoga “really spooky.” California megachurch pastor John MacArthur called yoga a “false religion.” Muslim clerics have banned Muslims from practicing yoga in Egypt, Malaysia and Indonesia, citing similar concerns.”

Like A Virgin

    • A study conducted by Dr. Stuart Brody, at the University of West Scotland found a relationship between the fluidity with which a woman walks and her ability to have vaginal orgasms. They discovered that women with a more fluid stride were reported to experience orgasms more readily than women with locked and rigid pelvises.
    • The Pentagon’s blue-sky research arm wants to trick out troops’ brains, from the areas that regulate alertness and cognition to pain treatment and psychiatric well-being. And the scientists want to do it all from the outside in — with a gadget installed inside the troops’ helmets. “Remote Control of Brain Activity Using Ultrasound,” the Defense Department’s Armed with Science blog promises. It’s the latest out-there project in the military’s growing arsenal of brain-based research. In recent months alone, the Pentagon’s funded projects to optimize troop’s minds, prevent injuries and even preemptively assess cognitive ability and vulnerability to traumatic stress. Now, Darpa’s funding one lab that’s trying to do it all — from boosting troop smarts to preventing traumatic brain injuries.
    • Thanks Baller.
    • Former CIA agents have confirmed for the first time that the agency tortured prisoners at a “black site” detention center in north-eastern Poland at the height of the war on terror. According to the Associated Press, a former CIA agent identified only as “Albert” tortured the terror suspect Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri multiple times with an electric drill at the converted Stare Kiejkuty military base near Szymany in the Masuria region of Poland.
    • Google’s agreement with Verizon to speed certain Internet content to users opens the door to the complete sterilization of the world wide web as a force for political change. Under Google’s takeover plan, the Internet will closely resemble cable TV, independent voices will be silenced and the entire Internet will be bought up by transnational media giants.
    • Ever thought it’d be cool to take some hallucinogenic drugs and check out a movie—say, sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey? This guy thought it’d be cool. And his trip—and resultant freakout—was recorded by five different audience members.
    • Dis ad sho nuff racist.
    • Park officials in China have found a way to stop people from hogging their benches for too long – by fitting steel spikes on a coin-operated timer.
    • This carpenter ant (Camponotus leonardi) is caught in the throes of a fungus-induced death grip. It has clamped itself to a leaf 25 centimetres above a forest floor in Thailand, and died. The reason is growing out of the back of its head. The reddish-brown stalk is made by a fungus called Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, which has invaded the ant’s body and manipulated its behaviour. The exposed position is ideal for releasing spores. It turns out this parasitic mind-control is at least 48 million years old. David Hughes of Harvard University and colleagues discovered fossilised leaves of this age in Messel, Germany that bore characteristic “death grip” scars, suggesting that ants once clamped themselves onto them.
    • While it’s women who are seeking the surgery, it’s conservative men, and their desire to marry virgins, that’s driving the trend. In China, it costs as “little as 5,000 renminbi, or about $737, for a 20- to 30-minute procedure,” the Post reports. In the simplest form of the procedure, a surgeon uses “catgut sutures to approximate hymen remnants (with or without incorporation of a gelatin capsule containing a blood-like substance which bursts on intercourse),” according to the British Medical Journal.

      Manmade Vaginas

      • Goodbye rats with wings!
      • A Mexican drug gang is hiring pretty young women to carry out killings to surprise its enemies, a suspected member of the vicious La Linea gang said in a video. Around 30 women aged between 18 and 30 years have learned in recent months to carry out killings accompanied by hitmen, and most have killed people, suspect Rogelio Amaya said during a interrogation by federal police. The video of the interrogation was made public on Tuesday.
      • LSD and ketamine, two powerful hallucinogens, are also potential cures for depression, OCD, and anxiety. Two studies published this week, in Science and Nature, confirm that hallucinogenic drugs stimulate healthy brain activity, even promoting the growth of neurons.
      • A Massachusetts photographer has been arrested after allegedly trying to retrieve more than $1 million worth of marijuana from a shipping facility. Tommy Colbert, 52, of Brockton, Mass., one of the area’s top wedding photographers, is a suspect in connection with the big pot bust in Abington, where about 700 pounds of cannabis was seized on Monday. A relative of the photographer stunned court officials on Tuesday when she walked into the clerk’s office at Brockton District Court and paid Colbert’s bail with $40,000 cash
      • To describe the experience of putting my life in the hands of the San Fransisco Traffic God’s while the sky melds together in an amalgous orgasm of blue and magenta and while cars leave such profoundly solid tracers behind them that I can’t tell whether they’re limousines or not is, essentially, impossible. The experience is just fucking ludicrous. I’ve been bombing hills at 35 miles an hour before only to have taxi cars open their doors in front of me with only ten feet to brake. I’ve been within inches of been piledrived by several ton cars in direct oncoming traffic.
      • Thanks Vince Wilt
      • The ads requested “a real aggressive man with no concern for women” to humiliate, physically and sexually abuse them, and pimp them out to their friends. The first four he placed around the country seemed to find no response. But he finally found a taker in Casper, Wyoming. His former girlfriend saw the Craigslist post — it included her photo — and asked the website to take it down. But that was after Ty Oliver McDowell had already responded. He began trading email with Stipe, assuming he was talking to the woman. Stipe encouraged McDowell to go to her house and rape the woman. A few days later, McDowell attacked the woman from behind as she was entering her home. He wrestled her to the floor and punched her in the face, tied her up and blindfolded her, then raped her with both his penis and a knife sharpener.
      • Police say that 31-year-old Luis Mijangos was quite proficient with computers. He just used his powers for evil instead of good. They say he targeted at least 44 girls and 186 women, mostly in Southern California, who used peer-to-peer file sharing networks… He would send out files disguised as popular songs, but they’d actually contain secret computer code. This allowed him to infect his victims’ computers, and the malware was passed along to friends and family via instant messages. This gave him control of their computers, and he used them to gather intimate photos and videos. He was also able to grab their personal information and remotely turn on webcams to catch them in compromising positions. By hacking email accounts, we would further pretend to be the victims’ boyfriends and ask them to make him porn videos.
