Musical Synesthesia - Paintings by Melissa McCracken

Updated: Life

I once learned of a condition called synesthesia (by indulging in a large dose of psychedelics, admittedly).  That term is a psychology label for the experience of "a crossing of the senses."  It happens differently in different people, but the main idea is that you can taste what you see, hear what you feel, see […]

Archangel Metatron told Santana to Collab with Pop Stars?!?

Updated: Life

I don't even know what's going on any more... Carlos Santana, writer of a ton of awesome songs and channeler of spirit entities? wat We all know that Carlos Santana was into some stuff back in the day.  He used to eat copious amount of psychedelics and meditate a lot.  Heck, I do both of […]

Updated: Life

Life is crazy enough itself without trying to wonder about the afterlife.  Is there one or is there not?  The only way to know is to fully shed your mortal coil and then manage to come back.  You could even argue that coming back means you never really passed on. Yes, life is crazy enough. […]
