Thank you, Fabio, for taking time to draw our attention to Dr. Shulgin, a great man.

@DJ Fabio: The choice of Les Yeux Fermes as background to this interview is so right-on, I'm sure Dr.Shulgin himself would have been very pleased to hear it.

[let the record show that these revelations were some 28 years ago and the Rev. is a well-behaved clergyman these days...]
  Thu. 6/5/14 5:28pm P-90:

Cecilie: Respectfully, "bad acid" is kind of a myth. if it's "bad", it's not acid. There aren't good and bad varieties of acid, there's only one flavor. The term "bad acid" was used for something represented as acid but not acid, or acid laced with other drugs or impurities that are "bad."
Avatar Thu. 6/5/14 5:28pm fleep:

Or it could just be a flashback. BBeeeenn tthheerree,, ddoonnee tthhaatt..
Avatar    Thu. 6/5/14 5:31pm Cecile:

well, OK. it was laced with PCP and animal tranquilizers that made him very sick.

But since it's not legal right this second, you are at the mercy of the seller, and that is a risk I don't want to take, in addition to not being really interested in taking acid in the first place.
Avatar Thu. 6/5/14 5:32pm Bosh:

This is so beautiful! Exactly what I needed today!
Avatar Thu. 6/5/14 5:35pm Milson:

we used to call it "blotter paper"... ineffective tweak acid... ...a bad trip on the otherhand... I'll never forget this one dude whose GF was pregnant and having a baby. She kept calling to ask why he was not at the hospital with her. He was freaking out... we, unconsciously, and not knowing if the calls were real ourselves, convinced him that she was trying to mess with him, knowing he was frying balls. It went back and forth like this all night... the next morning, he was a proud papa... He missed the birht of his daughter, but he became a bureaucrat and the rest is in a report due by COB today.

it is very soothing. making me feel less stabby

i hear ya Cecile. i took the drugs a few times (always in best possible settings) and am glad i did, but they turned my uncle (who apparently took too much, or took something "bad" in the 60s) into a permanent 12 year old who's needed to be taken care of by my family ever since. no joke.

There were a few other vocalists between Perry and the new guy.
Avatar Thu. 6/5/14 5:54pm still b/p:

There were some fun, odd trips and big laugh sessions and interesting rushes in those times....but you look back and shake your head at the nonchalance and risks. Buying some trip material from a shivering scruffy stranger on Boston Common, not smart behavior, and not a good product. Buying brown acid at a Dead concert, not a good product -- no bad outcome but who the hell knows what people are selling you. 15 and 16 year olds lining up to buy mescaline, later revealed to be purple microdot, from a 19 year old in a ski dorm, a somewhat troubling scene & recollection.

Yes went on without Jon Anderson under similar circumstances recently.

  Thu. 6/5/14 5:59pm ScottC:

new theory of the Black Plague: Rats could not have been responsible because the disease spread too quickly. The new theory is that malnutrition made the disease spread faster
