A friend of mine owns a property which is about 40 acres of rainforest at the end of a valley near mullumbimby. It is an amazing place, you drive down this little road which eventually becomes their driveway. Most of the way down the road there are cow paddocks, but at the border to his property you pass over a causeway and on suddenly your in this magical wonderland where the rest of the world just doesn't exist. The entire propert is old-growth rainforest and you just would not know that the rest of the world existed in there.
Anyway, I went out there yesterday to have a couple of beers with him and a few other mates. About 5pm my mate turns to me and says "you know it's been raining for days and its sunny today". Now this may not mean much to you, but to me it means one thing - goldtops.
Goldtops are a type of magic mushroom which grow abundantly around this area from November to March, but they need a good couple of days of rain followed by a nice sunny day for them to pop up. It was perfect conditions. So we all went off hunting through the paddocks up the road for a couple of hours and came back with a huge load. Cooked up a tea and that was that.
It was an awesome night, but my head doesn't feel quite right today. One thing I really love about hallucinogens is that, for me at least, they very rarely produce ill effects the next day, so today I'm feeling pretty good. Nothing like a hangover or anything, but I just feel like my mind has taken too much stimulus and needs to relax. So, I've got a great track for just such a day, I'm sitting here at home listening to the whole album and feeling a nice cool breeze wash over me. I think when I finish this post I might go for a swim.
Anyway, without further ado, I present Leftfield with a track off the 1995 album Leftism called Release the pressure. Very chill. Also, I have some transcendental artwork by Alex Grey for you to enjoy!
Now i'm going for a swim :D
