Cliff,

If WFMU can send us swags, surely they can send us other type of goods as well. LSD infused stickers, anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/1/16 8:21am Cliff:

Yes, let's turn our favorite Freeform Station of the Nation into a covert drug-distribution network. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG??
  Wed. 6/1/16 8:25am Jack:

Ken, could you play something from Blue Cheer's second album - Outsideinside? Great music, mixed by someone doing Owlsey acid at the time ( and it shows! )
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/1/16 8:28am sphere:

hello folks. if the Dead are not on the menu, why not play "Bomb The Mars Hotel" by 11th Dream Day?
  Wed. 6/1/16 8:28am ɍoɍo (:

Nothing, Cliff, as long as the WFMU operates from the Dark Web -the second best type of web that there is- and starts accepting bitcoins. Inspired in Silk Road we can name the new site 'Ken Road'. No one will suspect.

  Wed. 6/1/16 8:40am ɍoɍo (:

If I am not mistaken the last person Ken's interviewed was a whistling genius. But it was so long time ago, I mean, we are talking about the era when whistling was all the rage.

  Wed. 6/1/16 9:20am Brendan:

Hey Ken, FMU and Porcupine Tree fan here. But alas the twain rarely meet except on Irene's show. They have a number of drug inspired early tunes ... Any of the Voyage 34 tracks ( a 4 side spoken word trance prog psych documentary of a young mans acid trip) would be good fodder.

  Wed. 6/1/16 9:26am Cecile:

But asking for an album side may be a bit much so perhaps their track (L)inton (S)amuel (D)awson.

"Yellow and Black and Rectangular" by Negativland is coming to mind for some reason
  Wed. 6/1/16 9:28am Cecile:

Cliff, awesome! Yeah mine's a little thick. But I sound pretty posh back home.
  Wed. 6/1/16 9:28am Jack:

Y'know, on the Dead's Aoxomoxoa album, there's a song that even the Deadheads' hate: "What's Become of The Baby?" 8:12 minutes of total psychedelic weird effects & bullshit, etc. It really sucks! Play it Ken, please? The Dead reportedly never played it live.

@Cliff: Where are you from?

Very interesting. The most recent and serious scientific study about LSD (published just few weeks ago) describes the processes that occur in the brain when a user experiments the 'I'm one with the world' feeling.

Much respect for Ayahuasca, but not touching it myself. That stuff opens up the sluices on both ends simultaneously :/

ya, they have a gland that produces 5-MEO-DMT, you can like squeeze them to milk it out and then dry it and smoke it, it's supposedly strong as shit

You guys are hitting all the bases...how about Datura? or nutmeg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/1/16 11:31am Cliff:

Actually harmine/harmaline is the main ingredient in traditional Ayahausca preparations, while DMT is considered an admixture

Morning Glory seeds contain lysergic acid, which can produce a mild effect even when not converted to the LSD form. Hippies used to order the seeds by the case from Burpee and the the other big mail-order seed suppliers.

a friend of mine works at the National Archives and he showed me a clip of a regiment that was dosed with LSD and told to march in circles (until they saw an effect of course). All of a sudden, the regiment went from order to chaos in a minute.
