Dopesmoker



I can recall believing once, in my innocent youth, that I wasn't interested in bands that were all about drugs, vocalizing that opinion, and receiving hearty laughter in reponse. I suppose it says something that no dope at all is required for me to listen to this over and over: I have my own natural dopiness.

Here's a Wikipedia article about the trials and travails of getting record companies to release hour-long songs. Also memorizing hour-long songs. I hear the dope is good for that.

Here are some possibly-accurate lyrics.

Angels we have heard while high?

Don't forget the frankinsensimilla.

I can't say I got much out of the song. Perhaps I need to get drunk.

Although it weirds me out that I find this show consistently fascinating even when I'm stone-cold sober...and it's CLEARLY made for a stoned audience.
Marijuana.

Oh, and I seem to recall my goody two-shoes little ass saying similar things when I was young and getting a similar response.

I never cared for THC- makes me feel uncharacteristically paranoid.

Substance McGravitas said...

Me too. I don't like it at all.

BBBB and SM can send all theirs to me, then.

Damn, zombies are QUICK. I haven't done it in ages but recall liking it bunches. It made everything either hilarious or delicious, depending on the item in question.

I dunno, these bales make handy footrests.

After I started taking prescribed psychotropic medication, the reefer either wouldn't do anything, or would make me anxious.

Stopped the prescription junk several yrs. ago, but the reefer still doesn't happen for me. And the tinnitus from the anti-depressant is apparently permanent too.

I'd send mine to zrm, but I smoked it all! (Probably Bastard's & McGravitas's as well, c. 1967-2007.)

It made everything either hilarious or delicious.
If it doesn't make you laugh, eat it.

Hey, this one's longer, & the band name & title are both stupid/dopey references.

Oh, preview is a pop-up again, after I went w/ embedded. What a pain.

Substance McGravitas said...

Hmm, gotta listen to that.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

it's no Metal Machine Music.

Still have the last 20 mins. of GBR to "dig." Better than Sleep, I dare say.

Me dear departed Maither gave it a few tries but used never to abide the cannabis as it invariably gave her a brutal headache.

I was a chronic wake-&-bake afficianado for ages, but for the last several orbits I have it much less often & enjoy it MOAR THAN EVAR. As with daily boozing, I just find it gets dumbing-downish & dull.

Not to mention that ever since that mysterious old man revealed the innermost secrets of human reality to me, I've discovered that the consolation of learning how to be accepted among the First-Devoured when the stars align has its own special deeply intoxicating comfort.

IA! CTHULHU FHTAGN!
