    Sub prints wanted, eventually

    Just thought I’d get in early to say that I might be after some sub prints for microscopy once they are available as the weather cools. Ideally, I could acquire them myself, but can’t count on that with the way things are going where I am - hence the contingency. Can pay cash (assuming I’m not broke in the future, lol) or trade seeds (will have to double-check: I’m sure I have some MG and at least one trich cross I did a few years back, plus random other cacti and acacias).

    Meet up: Melbourne

    The Melbourne calendar has lots of opportunities for meet ups between now & June. The psychedelic society is doing stuff for Bicycle Day on April 19 and are running a mushroom day at Belgrave on May 23. EGA has Garden States at Springvale on May 9.

    Giant pumpkin contest!!

    Haven’t seen those, but the trombochino seedlings I got from there are good for a laugh if you let their fruit get big - kind of like a metre long butternut squash (but not as tasty which is why it’s better to eat them when they’re little).
  4. FB and it’s lack of ability (or desire) to catch people is not helpful. I help mod a group there and if it’s not some naive but desperate person asking for psychedelics it’s some random claiming to sell them. Even independently of that, I don’t think FB brings out the best in people. As for the influx, psychedelics are a big, big thing. Like the ‘next big thing’, bigger than cannabis stocks, complete with breathless articles in Forbes about making money from pharmaceutical psychedelics There was an article in the Motley Fool about making 1000% ROI, I shit you not. It’s not quite at the level of peak crypto hype, but you can see it coming. And that’s just the corporate money side. Lots of folks have heard about shrooms being good for depression etc. That, and I reckon a lot of people are as bored as shit and just want to experience something that feels like it means something. Combine that with a life of pretend instant (or is it Insta) gratification, and people can get pretty impatient. Like @waterboy 2.0 says, be firm, tell people how it is around here and smash that mf’ing report button if you have to.

    I’m sure we can arrange that (and maybe even something in the interim).

    Bummer you can't make it Amz, hope everything is OK. I'm in the rotunda now, amazing that it's empty today.

    What time were we thinking? The usual?
  9. An icy ghost hand around my heart curl’d a pit of gravity in my stomach that cold sadness I have no true name for My quantified desires lubricate the slick silicon nictating membrane of the eye that watches me and knows all (but understands naught of my inner life) When the whole world’s your grave someone’s always walking over it (chasing Pokémon) Will they sing the new day in for us now? Still, on a few days and even more nights I can feel the old blood humming in me Memories or fantasies? Matters not. Either way, it shines in me ‘til I’m blind: Bear-sarked skin-changer raging against death Predator of night. Sword of the morning! And I recall my actual youth when I took the Orca as my totem and the sea-wolf kept me safe from teeth and deep (Remember; the ghost-dance is rebellion) Against good sense, and even existence I rebel. And in rebelling, I see: I am my pain, my joy. I AM my fear I see the icy hand is mine! And I reach into my chest and tear out my traitorous weak and cowardly heart And I dash it on the ground, stamping hard Life goes on, for a while, until next time Life: a moment. An instant: infinite

    That might work better than Sunday the 26th - I think I might be at the Rainbow Serpent thing in town that day.
  11. I've come across this group via Facebook - Thank You Plant Medicine. They are looking to coordinate a campaign of people talking publicly about their use of psychedelics and other psychoactive plants & fungi. From their website: https://thankyouplantmedicine.com/ Now, I know talking publicly about taking this stuff isn't for everyone. Nor is being on social media. Combine the two, and I imagine that's a bit much for a lot of people. But if you're in a position to contribute to this, I think it would be a good thing. Raising awareness and breaking stereotypes is a good thing. For what it's worth, I'm considering what I'd say openly, and am probably going to overthink it. They've got a fair list of organisations partnering with them too: Chacruna.net, ICEERS, Third Wave, and a stack of psychedelic societies - including the Australian one. What they seem to be missing is much engagement from the cannabis communities. Given the issues we have with medicinal cannabis access in Australia, I would have thought this was obvious common ground, but I'm not sure what they've done to reach out. I honestly don't know if this campaign will really go anywhere, or if they'll even reach their targets. But I appreciate that they are having a go.

    Fuck yes!
  13. I was just thinking that in Australia at least, a lot of the original story has it backwards, or doesn’t show the whole picture. When I was growing up, I was the kid who lived on the farm. When I was first in high school (year 7-8 I think) I was convinced I was poor compared to the kids who lived in suburbia. Even the housing commission kids had more designer clothes than I did. It wasn’t until I was older that I realised a working farm that we owned outright was worth more money than a house in the burbs and a bunch of consumer crap. That’s not to take away from @Micromegas‘s analysis (I think there’s something to that but will need to go and have a think before addressing it directly), just that such parables leave out the reality of wealth in some urban/rural divides.

    5 sub prints for $20 forum donation

    Not sure if the prints are still available (will pm you @spooge), but this place as given me a lot over the years, so I think a modest donation is the least I can do either way. Edit: have been trying to edit this for ages to reflect that I just realised the prints are gone, but that I don’t care.

    DOSED screening in Sydney

    @Pseudo Mexican start a new thread with your thoughts on the film. I don’t need to agree with you (not that we even know if we disagree yet) to want to hear what you have to say.
