"Practially every one of the Top 40 records being played on every radio station in the United States is a communication to the children: to take a trip.. to cop out.. to groove. The psychedelic jackets on the record albums have their own hidden symbols and messages, as well as the lyrics to all the top rock songs.. and they all sing the same refrain: 'it's fun to take a trip, put acid in your veins...'"

(...or don't put acid in your veins; I just find the quote delightfully dated and superstitious.)

I'm also a big fan of...

Other places you can find me...
