Reminds me of when I used to drop much LSD back in the 90's.

Glad those days are behind me.

I'm sorry to say that I did.
I'm a fully recovered addict. Meth and everything under the sun.

Blessed to be alive.

There's no better Pastor/Preacher than one who has personally experienced real world redemption. And I mean that sincerely. It puts everything I know about you into focus and makes me respect you even more. [thumb]

My rock bottom was like something out of a psychological horror movie. Like Jacob's Ladder.

I am always willing to share my story with those who ask.
Let's talk about it via Skype sometime. Say when.

I created a book for an art class in college. It was me doing the cup and ball trick photographed in my back yard. I think the idea was that in the outdoors, with no table, and nothing around me, there were no signs of trickery.

So imagine that each line of narrative had a picture. You can imagine how this trick is similar to the above.

Today I'm going to show you the cup and ball trick.

This is the cup.

This is the ball.

I place the ball on my hand.

I cover it with the cup.

I say the magic words...

And when I remove the cup, the ball changes into a 2 litre bottle of Coke!

Wow! I watched a couple more of her videos and there's some serious social commentary on display. Themes of social isolation, obsession with technology, the Illuminati, brainwashing, celebrity culture, consumer culture... I'm intrigued - There could even be some real genius at work here. Just take a look at the number of page views. This performance art character is generating some tremendous advertising dollars, and that's a kind of magic on its own.

   The word "trippy" has been used here a couple of times - as if everyone understands its meaning. I don't. Would somebody define it for me? Still trying to see what I'm missing here.

Hi Harry,

The word "trippy" comes from the drug culture of the 60's and describes the strange/mystical, psychological experiences that are induced by hallucinogenics.

These strange videos are "trippy" in the sense that they almost make you feel like you're high on something.

They were posted here for our amusement since this women claims to be doing a card trick.

I'm just familiar with the term, though i've never done any drugs except for monthly injections for this silly brain tumor. Never even smoked pot. I grew up as a goody goody type. A friend of mine described the film Harold and Maude and "trippy" and i have since then like that word. And somehow i like trippy things. Go figure.

Doesnt someone have an effect called LSD Aces? Roger Smith, maybe?

I think i'm going to develop Trippy Aces

This is the most moving thing I have read in a long time.  You've walked a long hard road my friend, one that most of us - myself included - cannot begin to imagine.  We should all be grateful that you had the strength to survive - so many do not - and to move on to all the good works that you now do.

Hi Harry

It seems to me that society contains a segment for whom "weird" and "clever" are synonymous.  "Weird" and "clever" can work brilliantly together and can produce fantastically funny results (I'm thinking of Monty Python).  But for me, "weird" without "clever" just feels empty ... and that's what I get out of Poppy.  The people behind this may feel like they are being incredibly creative and insightful with ironic commentary about pop culture and celebrity worship and cookie-cutter entertainers ... but to a geezer like me who has heard all this before it's not very remarkable.  I guess it's just not my cup of tea.

You're not a geezer, Mr. Lorayne. I did't understand it either. I realized that my wife and I were "outside the demographic" when commercials no longer made sense. So, something like this is even farther away from my understanding.

         I think that the phrase for me is - OLD geezer! 

        And yes, I see some TV commercials that make no sense to me. I think that with some, trying to be terribly clever only makes the end result stupid. But obviously they don't think so. Just my opinion.
