free drugs

I've found myself with a host of trippy images, songs, and harmless activities that simulate drugs and hallucinogens and have decided to compile them in the following list. Who needs real drugs when you have the internet?

John Lodge "Natural Avenue," Steve Frankfurt

For a hallucinatory cinematic experience, I recommend watching Enter the Void - the movie equivalent of drugs. It's visually psychedelic, extremely cerebral, and simultaneously the slowest and most fast paced movie you will ever watch.

For a musical trip, isten to Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion with a set of fantastic, visceral headphones - like the really big ones you probably wouldn't wear in public. The songs are fluid, hallucinatory, dream-like, and best of all, the album cover is an awesome optical illusion that mimics what one might visualize on LSD. I see what you did there, Animal Collective.

If you don't think the Inception app is awesome, that means you haven't tried it yet. Download the Inception app on your iPhone, or if you don't have one find someone who does and force them to let you use it. Bring headphones. It launches you into a variety of different "dreams" in which sounds from your surrounding environment are altered in the app and played back to you in real time through your headphones so you feel like you're dreaming or hallucinating. My favorite is the "Sunshine" dream, which you can activate if you use the app during the daytime. Playing with a bag of chips will never feel more gratifying.
