  1. 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.
  3. 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!
  5. 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.

    DOSED screening in Sydney

    Saw this in Melb last night - well worth watching, though not without some ethical complexity.

    Adelaide Ethno Meet 2nd Sunday of each month

    Not that I’m in Adelaide (or likely to be any time soon), but I’d totally go to this.

    Campervan conversion ideas?

    Hey @Humbolt, thanks for that. I’m not looking for anything too modern - old enough so I can do most of the work on it myself, but not so old that reliability goes down and running/repair costs go up. Definitely no pop-tops either. Mostly want to use it for camping, rent it out as a camper when we’re not using it, not much else. Would get a kombi for the right price, but I’ve not seen many for sale. I’m tempted by something like a Mitsubishi Delica, but also know that if I rent it out to ppl, they will inevitably get it bogged because it’s 4wd.

    Campervan conversion ideas?

    I was thinking of buying a campervan, or just a van and doing the conversion myself. Figured we’d get a bit of use out of it and then rent it out to help cover costs through camplify, camptoo or similar. Any ideas on what I should look for - best models etc., or where to get info on conversions? Has anyone had any experience renting out their van through any of these companies? I’ve got my eye out for something not too old, and with not too many kms on it, but thanks as far as I’ve gotten in terms of narrowing it down.

    27th? I must have read the replies too quickly as I thought it was this weekend (or I do actually need glasses, something I’ve suspected for some time). Might actually be able to make it then.
