Don't forget the part on your rider that requires enough brown acid to fill a brandy glass or you won't play.

the brown acid was the bad stuff

(though of course that's all bullshit; there's no such thing as lsd that gives everyone a bad trip; the announcements are probably what did it!)

could it have been cut badly and had too much poison in it or something?

hah, i don't remember that one. it must only be in the movie. i've seen it, but only once. i used to listen to the soundtrack constantly for years, though. i can still recite the stage announcements that are on the album ("PLEASE come down off those towers, folks, we don't need the extra weight"), but i don't remember the stuff that's only in the movie.

I think I remember that from a documentary that probably played on VH1 or the History Channel a long time ago about Woodstock or something.  They'd interviewed Wavy about the incident and I remember him quoting himself like that--lower voice, like a tape being played too slow.  I thought it was hilarious.

No. LSD in blotter form is essentially impossible to tamper with. If people were having bad trips en masse, it's because they were expecting to have a bad trip.

Eh, I think it usually goes for like ten-fifteen bucks a hit nowadays, which is fucking lame, considering the shit tends to not be very strong, or at least the stuff that's been around here. I haven't eaten any in a couple years though, so yeah, I dunno.

yeah, in the late 90s when friends of mine did it on the regular it was $5 a hit around here. on the other hand, gas was also $1.25 a gallon, so who knows.

i do know that on average, a hit of acid in the 60s was equal to 4 hits of acid now. i don't know why that's become the case, but it has been since sometime in the late 80s.

At one point somebody told me it's getting harder and harder to find the components to make it these days. Not sure how true that is, though.

It's more there's just not as many people making it. It's not quite the same as growing weed in your closet. Also, the Dead aren't touring as much and Phish broke up, so it's not as easy to move it. Meth et all have become far more lucrative.

Gary's right; most of the major players got busted in the late 90's, and there was virtually no LSD around for a few years because of it. Even now, when you're supposedly being sold LSD, it's more likely an analog or one of the numerous other synthetic psychedelics (such as AMT)

I actually didn't realize there were LSD busts in the late 90s--I thought that shit had gone pretty far underground by then. But I guess the guys who got busted must have been doing it for a while, and there were no new guys working to take their place.

Though it's worth noting that the major movers in the LSD world will still maintain that what they did was never for money. Whether you choose to believe this or not is up to you, but I'm inclined to believe that it was mostly true.

Right. It may have actually been earlier than that, too (can't remember) and it just took that long for the supply to dwindle down. 'Cause seriously, those motherfuckers made a LOT of acid. And the really fucked up thing is that there were only a handful of people in the world doing it, providing heads all across the globe with LSD.

sqr to thread, for real

No so do I. I had a friend who sold mushrooms who genuinely wanted people to enjoy themselves--like he would go so far as to follow up after he sold them to you and see how you liked them. But I imagine LSD manufacture is a pretty expensive operation, and if the demand isn't there it's probably not worth doing it on a large scale.

Well, other hallucinogens are good too. AMT was a totally crazy time. It's just nice to know what you're actually getting.

My sister-in-law, who is a nice person but has the habit of saying the most inappropriate stuff one can possibly say in any given situation ever, was thinking out loud as I was getting back to my current translation five minutes ago:

"Sitting at the computer, translating stuff on the Internet, listening to music.. just about anyone can do that" *quiet laugh*

Two minutes later, noticing my tax return on my desk: "What, you actually pay taxes for this stuff?"

I didn't know whether to put this in the sad thread, or happy, or annoyed, or quotables, so here goes.
Now I really don't feel like working anymore.

Yeah, I didn't say anything. I know better than to think she means harm, or something. I'm just worried of what happens when she says the wrong thing to the wrong person (I mean, it happens fairly often, but most of the time the consequences aren't very serious).

My train is a bit late, but soon I'll be on my way home. I'm both happy and sad to be leaving. I had a great week and a great training, but I do miss my own bed.

I didn't even realize you were in the city until this morning, when I was catching up on a bunch of old threads.  We coulda gotten french fries or something.
