the auditory hallucinations are a side effect of the LSD. anyone who says they have been to a show dosed beyond belief and not gotten that, is a liar. it sucks. t he worst is when you are really o ver the limit and that seems to last longer...like minutes of a song will sound off then all of a sudden it's fine, everythings cool.
i have had one enormously bad trip, and as long as this might be, it is the short version. it was my first winter home from college my buddy from u of c boulder brought home a vial from a cook in the mountains. i told him to let me have it, he fucking squirted that thing like a water bottle. within 5 minutes things were swirling and in about 20-30 the walls had already completely caved in. i was cool for a long time listening to a recent phil a nd friends show i attended. i was not in the right setting. i was at some random friend of a friends house and he changed the music to some gangster rap. i don't know why but i lost it. i politely asked him to turn it off and put my cd back in. this dude didn't even know what LSD was or that i was on it. he said no and i started to freak out, the gangster stuff was just not right it was so obscene (don't get me wrong i like some old 90's type hip hop stuff but comeon...) i immediately felt like something wasn't right. then i noticed my heart rate, then i noticed all the sweat, i looked up to a bunch of red christmas lights but all i saw was myself unresponsive to a paramedic and the lights ambulance lights.. i immediately started telling my friend things as if i was dying--people for him to tell i loved them, especially my parents (whom i lied to that night about where i was going and what i was doing, i think that latently had an effect too) i began talking about a best friend i lost in a car accident, asking where he was. i thought i was dead. i completely died that night, and experienced a rebirth. this happens with each LSD trip but not to the extent of this night...it's not like it was my first rodeo i had dropped more than enough by that point...my friend began talking to me straight. telling me that i was really fine etc etc. by this point i was demanding he bring me home to my parents house and he kept saying no man you don't want me to do that but i thought he was lying. eventually he puts me in the car we start driving im floating. he turns on the cd player...immediately without pressing a button terrapin station comes on. i IMMEDIATELY snap out of it. i look at him and say "what the fuck just happened".....in reality what happened was i had a major anxiety attack. my mindset wasn't right. i was feeling guilty about lying to my parents so i could go drop acid, and it never left my mind that night. secondly, my setting was about as far from ideal as you can imagine. in a house with someone i barely know who doesn't know a thing about what we're doing...all of this pressed me into a frenzy i couldn't shake. i was frightened. that night taught me a lot about respecting LSD because it's way more powerful than any of us.
one other time i ingested several hits of LSD and 7 grams of mushrooms and i didn't move for an entire show. i didn't feel right from the get go, and eventually i became the earth.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?
