Rode up near 10,000 feet to check out my new light-weight 32 degree 1-pound bad and 1-pound thermarest. Only problem is that we (Gnome, Blair, Josh included) drank some whiskey and wine. So after my (maybeMoreThan) fairshare I FoundMySelf at around 3 in the morning with a uninflated thermarest on rocks and coverd with an unzipped sleeping bag and shivering my ass off… Maybe a sober gear test will be in order next time!
Anyway I really loved laying there cold as shit listing to the wind whip through the trees. I could see/feel/taste the non-linear ‘chaos’ of wind in my mindsEyeBall. Claro! Tranquelo aqui!
Anyway I am going to now go ride allDay and skip that whiteTrashParty at Bensons.
Man I love the new tool CD – 10,000 days. Love their last 3 CDs actually…
Below are supposed quotes of MJK of tool…
I think psychedelics play a major part in what we do, but having said that, I feel that if somebody’s going to experiment with those things they really need to educate themselves about them. People just taking the chemicals and diving in without having any kind of preparation about what they’re about to experience tend to have no frame of reference, so they’re missing everything flying by and all these new perspectives. It’s just a waste. They reach a little bit of spiritual enlightenment, but they end up going, ‘Well, now I need that drug to get back there again.’ The trick is to use the drugs once to get there, and maybe spend the next ten years trying to get back there without the drug.
Genesis 1:1–“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God.” In the original Aramaic text, that word was Yahweh or Jehovah, which means light and love. We’ve twisted it to mean this guy with a beard passing judgement, but it’s not. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was Love and Light; infinite, unconditional, and without judgement. At that point you can pretty much close the book, you know?
Think I will have to go check out MJKs vinyard near Page Springs, AZ and buy some wine.
