I’m a rather outspoken fan of both Bonobo and Cyriak so when I found out that Ninja Tune recently facilitated a collaboration between the two I was pretty fuckin’ pumped…so much so, in fact, that I didn’t watch the attached til this morning. The end of last week had been pretty busy and the last thing I wanted to do was have the initial screening take place on a small-ass screen with some tinny earbuds delivering the audio. Cyriak’s visuals are gonna be kick-ass no matter what ( Exhibit A ) but this music video is especially nice because both his work and Bonobo’s sound are all about a steady layering-on. Each artist starts with small, simple and discrete atoms – a stripped-down drum part or short, simple video loop – and starts piling them on top of one another until the whole far-exceeds the sum of its parts.
The planets in the heavens move in exquisite orbital patterns, dancing to the Music of the Cosmos. There is more mathematical and geometric harmony than we realize. The idea for this article is from a book Larry Pesavento shared with me. The book, ' A Little Book of Coincidence ' by John Martineau, illustrates the orbital patterns and several of their geometrical relationships. .

Gotcha! But the rest of these optical illusions are on the level. What are illusions? Illusions trick us into perceiving something differently than it actually exists, so what we see does not correspond to physical reality. Hence, the word illusion comes from the Latin verb illudere meaning, "to mock."
Literary Review: ‘Psychedelic Psychiatry – LSD from Campus to Clinic’ by Erika Dyck « Psychedelic Press UKOriginally published in 2008 ‘Psychedelic Psychiatry – LSD from Clinic to Campus’ by the historian Erika Dyck is an excellent, scholarly study into an important slice of LSD history. Mainly concerned with psychiatric LSD research in Canada, the text unpicks with some excellent research, some of the most interesting and important episodes in LSD’s short history, and goes a long way to re-establishing the hallucinogen, in its earliest form, as part of the medical discourse. The central figure in Dyck’s history of psychiatric LSD research is Dr. Humphry Osmond (1917-2004). Osmond moved from London, England to Weyburn, Canada in October 1951.
I'm going to "steal" from another blog here, which I generally avoid doing, in order to draw attention to it and what it has to say. Dr. Michael Saso has posted a synopsis version of the ten steps in shamatha and vipassana practice according to Zhi Yi, the famous ancestor (what my lineage of practice calls the "patriarchs") of Tendai Buddhism. I found this an excellent enough summary that I wanted to repeat it here and draw attention to Dr. Saso's quite enjoyable and informative, if occasional, blog posts.
Recreational substances are a part of the human experience. Part of the reason humanity decided to chill out and start farming was because they discovered beer, and wanted to make as much beer as possible. Some scientists believe our livers are designed to take some damage from alcohol and other chemicals in order for us to be more social animals. Thus, we’re genetically predisposed, heck, designed to get utterly baked and watch Cinemax all day.
Why It Sucks: How to kill a multi-billion dollar superhero franchise? Camp, rubber nipples, and enough homoeroticism to sink a frat house full of bodybuilders. Also, bat-skates.
I wrote a while back about SlopeViews . It’s a video technology that allows you to pan in any direction not only while the video is paused but even while the video is playing. It really gives you an excellent feel for what it’s like to be there.
