Am I the only one who gets the urge to run dancing through the woods when I watch this MGMT Electric Feel video? Tell me I’m not alone! Ahh, memories of growing up in the Pacific Northwest.
On a similar note, I listened to a bit on Npr’s Fresh Air a few days ago, an interview with author Tim Page, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s at the age of 45. He speaks about his experience with drugs:
And so I think, probably, my anxiety level was not going to be helped by these…very much internalizing drugs. I thought that taking LSD would be like swallowing a movie, and I’d just be watching it on a screen, and I’d see some nice things and some frightening things.
But what happens, of course, is that your whole brain is so screwed up, and you’re so lost by it that all that it did for me was just made me want to scream and run and escape from all this terror that was in my system, which I think is there, pretty much, to begin with, but certainly those kind of drugs make it much, much worse.
