A Prayer For Commuters – Updated With Fresh Road-Rage!

From my Twitter, my little prayer (even though I don’t pray, unless I’m tripping) for me and anyone else risking their lives daily just to get to and from work inside a motor vehicle. Feel free to incorporate it into your pre-take-off routines.  May it protect you from death and catastrophic injury… Wick Burner UPDATE! Yesterday, in real life, I was saved from death or catastrophic injury by a higher being, or something. An attempt was made to run me off the road at ~110km/h by an impatient methamphetamine user with anger-management issues, bad fashion-sense, debatable personal hygiene standards, an absence … Continue reading A Prayer For Commuters – Updated With Fresh Road-Rage!

I could rattle off pages of the ills I speak … Continue reading Answer The Damn Question!

Trippin’ In Paradise

On this day in 1970, Jimi Hendrix died, at the age of 27. Trailblazer, inventor, interpreter, communicator, human beacon. An example of how to live. An example of how not to die. One of my favourite anecdotes about Jimi is that he would place 2 or 3 LSD blotters on his forehead under his headband and play his gigs in a state of ‘escalating tripping’ as his sweat transported the good acid into his dermis and beyond.  I don’t know if that’s actually true, but it’s a damn fine tale. And so castles made of sand, melt into the sea, … Continue reading Trippin’ In Paradise
