New Kacey Musgraves video: Oh, What A World

Video: Kacey Musgraves -- “Oh, What A World”

Kacey Musgraves - Oh, What A World // OFFICIAL VISUAL VIDEO

From Golden Hour, out now on MCA Nashville.

It’s good to see the young people are doing acid again. (There was a drought in the early oughts.)

Musgraves talked to Rolling Stone last year about the effect that hallucinogens have had on her: “It made me more compassionate as a daughter, as a granddaughter, as a partner. It put me in my place in the universe, gave me perspective that I think everyone should have. Yes, we’re all special, but we’re also nothing, just a fraction of a grain of sand in the book of time, and make what you have count and make the relationships around you mean something. And care for the Earth because we only have one. Whenever you are affected by hallucinogenics, especially mushrooms, you care for the Earth. When you’re, like, tripping, it just floods out.”

What a world…

New Run the Jewels video: Legend Has It

Video: Run The Jewels -- “Legend Has It”

Run The Jewels - Legend Has It (Official Music Video From RTJ3)

RT&J really is the new PB&J. Tastes great and good for you, too. The song’s not saying much other than how murderous they are (on the mic, of course), but the video’s an unsubtle critique of the rigged justice system. Not breaking much new ground but Killer Mike and El-P make it all seem fresh and exciting. National treasures, I’m telling you.

Albert Hofmann, inventor of LSD, Dead at 102

SunshineJeez, who knew he was still alive? Well, he’s not anymore. It’s safe to say the world would be a much different place without the pioneering work of Dr. Hoffman. We certainly wouldn’t have as much good music, that’s for sure…

He then took LSD hundreds of times, but regarded it as a powerful and potentially dangerous psychotropic drug that demanded respect. More important to him than the pleasures of the psychedelic experience was the drug’s value as a revelatory aid for contemplating and understanding what he saw as humanity’s oneness with nature. That perception, of union, which came to Dr. Hofmann as almost a religious epiphany while still a child, directed much of his personal and professional life.

Check out Hoffman’s book, LSD: My Problem Child: Reflections on Sacred Drugs, Mysticism, and Science.
