Do you want to know what it feels like to take a new brand of acid? Or what a toxicology test would tell you about the contents of a particular ecstasy tablet? Or what is known about the effects, safety, dosage and other characteristics of almost any legal or illegal psychoactive chemical or plant? Check out Erowid, the oldest, largest and (arguably) most comprehensive, accurate and current database of psychoactive drugs on the Internet. The website, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year, informs about 100,000 readers a day.

Many of these folks are students. Some are dedicated members of the so-called psychonaut community—seekers of altered states of consciousness. But being the go-to site for highly credible information about thousands of illegal drugs, Erowid serves the knowledge needs of a wide range of consumers and professionals alike, including scientists, medical researchers, doctors and, perhaps most important, emergency room technicians and physicians.

A Chaos Magick Film: “visitors (SUPERVISITORS)” (NSFW)

Like Chapel Supremesus on Facebook for updates on future shows/films/etc.

Artist’s Statement:

Initially conceived as merely “cool shit for stoned people to look at while we play live” visitors (SUPERVISITORS) ended up becoming a legit 23 minute Occult film unto itself. It just sort of happened that way. Largely created using a technologically updated version of the cut up technique popularized by Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs back in the day, the movie takes various footage depicting mystical states of consciousness from the 70’s and re-assembles them with a lot of the sigil collage art I’ve been honing in recent years. For those in the know, it has long been theorized that using the cut up technique potentially allows the artist to tap into what’s often referred to as “the third mind” or to see what the art “is really saying” and that’s what’s so odd, transcendent, and baffling about the picture.… Read the rest

Meeting The Latter Day Saints On Acid

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Houston, Texas, 2012Have you ever been lured into a Mormon temple by those nice clean cut young men who accost you on the sidewalk outside the “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”? Bet you didn’t decide to do so while on acid, but that’s just what Troy Farah did, recounting his tale for Vice:

No religion is complete without a little mystery—Catholicism with its Immaculate Conception, Scientology with its OT Levels, Buddhism with its Nirvana. It goes without saying that the Latter-day Saints have their share of enigmatic rituals. Some Christian fundamentalists are quick to point out the esoteric beliefs of the LDS church, including the ideas that Mormons become gods of their own planets when they reach one of three heavens, that Jesus vacationed in the Americas, and that they once sort of had a thing against black people.

The Mormon obsession with building gigantic temples around the globe also raises some eyebrows in non-believers, owing to the secrecy of whatever goes on inside.

Why I Don’t Do Psychedelics Very Often Anymore

daemonicheatherblackrainbowI feel like I should start this off by saying that I’m never going to stop doing psychedelic drugs and to say that I don’t do them very often anymore would sort of ignore the fact that I get high almost every day. In my mind weed’s a bit more of hallucinogen than most people like to acknowledge, it just takes a bit more focus to be used in that capacity and people are lazy. Things like acid and mushrooms come right into your world impose their essence into the very fiber of your world. They’re the only reason I’m writing this weird shit for you today. I took mushrooms when I was 18 and saw a universe of transcendent shape shifting mutant space art that no one will ever be able to explain to me with conventional thought. One of the more mind blowing aspects of randomly experimenting with psilocybin as a teenager had to do with reading people like Carlos Casteneda shortly thereafter.… Read the rest

Vintage: Paul McCartney Drops Some Truth on the Media

A reporter from the BBC tries to push Paul McCartney into a corner about a prior admission that he had used LSD. Mr. Reporter tries the classic "As a public figure..." and "...don't you have a responsibility" lines usually imposed upon celebrities caught doing something that the world's concerned mothers, government censors and religious busy-bodies publicly disapprove of, and a young Paul ain't havin' none of it. Hat tip: Reddit user "HazeoftheGreenSmoke".
