Psychedelics are your ticket. Your mind…the magic theater!

From the classic novel by Hermann Hesse:                                                    While out walking, Steppenwolf comes across an electric sign: “MAGIC THEATER. ENTRANCE NOT FOR EVERYBODY. FOR MADMEN ONLY!” The door to the theater is locked, so Steppenwolf visits an old tavern. While there, he questions his own existence and thinks about Mozart and Handel. On the way home, Steppenwolf visits the old wall again and encounters a man with a sign: “ANARCHIST EVENING ENTERTAINMENT. MAGIC THEATER. ENTRANCE NOT FOR EVERYBODY.” The man gives Steppenwolf a pamphlet entitled, “Treatise on the Steppenwolf. Not for Everybody.”

The entrance to the Magic Theater requires that the participants smoke some special cigarettes, which helps us to understand that it is really something that happens in the mind. 

“Thus we sat peacefully exhaling small puffs and taking little sips at our glasses, while every moment we felt ourselves growing lighter and more serene.”


Did Hesse use mind expanding drugs? The evidence is inconclusive, yet his novels suggest this was the case.

Great Houses of Westeros: House Targaryen (2/2)

“But in recent years, it has occured to me from time to time that it might have made for an interesting twist if instead I had made the dragonlords of Valyria, and therefore the Targaryens black….if I’d had dark-skinned dragonlords invade and conquer and dominate a largely white Westeros… though that choice would have brought its own perils. The Targaryens have not all been heroic, after all… some of them have been monsters, madmen, so…Well, it’s all moot. The idea came to me about twenty years too late.”

Speaking of creatures coming from another planet, you recently collaborated with Alex Turner and Miles Kane of the Last Shadow Puppets…" -

“(She bursts into laugher and claps her hands) They are truly hilarious, two madmen. They do not live far away from me, in Los Angeles. I’ve begun to train two evenings a week in the studio of Miles, in the neighborhood of Los Feliz, to play with no goals with the Last Shadow Puppets. Then we go eat dinner together with their girlfriends in ‘La Poubelle’ What a squad! I can’t count the amount of times I’ve ended up on the ground because I was laughing so hard. They are capable of speaking to one another by singing, with improvised lyrics. For example, one evening, I’ve told Miles about the concert of Joan Baez which I attended. He has never heard about her. Alex made up a song on the spot “Miles doesn’t know who Joan Baez is” (she screams)… None is ever safe of their twisted humor. When I first met them, I did have the impression that I met musicians who only live for the music, whose only thoughts are about music. Singing with them is truly invigorating, there is no need to repeat anything, they always find a continuation.
