You know for months now I have mulled, "What is the take, which I can sincerely espouse and defend, that would most enrage this forum"

And after a long search, it came to me last night:

MGMT is a good band and their lyrics are sharp and this goes all the way back to their first album

This microdose journey was inspired by Linebaugh's wife who microdoses daily as part of her AGILE PowerTM stack, specifically geared to channeling maximum aura influence for corporate mergers & acquisitions in Silicon Valley
 
I feel much more empathetic, I think I’m already quite sensitive and empathetic but my judgment of others is quite harsh at times but when I microdose I feel mostly the ahhh that’s another wee sensitive souls struggling through it all
 
Sometimes it enhances the imagination and articulatory powers to the point of absurdism and I feel I have to slow down like fuck me bro chill you’ll blow their minds. For all the chat about ego dissolution at a high dose, a low one can really make me fall in love with myself
 
Luke brushed it off because he’s got this sad lager boy attachment to hedonism and obliteration all or nothing etc - but then he tried it and told me he’d never felt better and never felt this way about a man before

First MGMT album is pretty decent modern indie pop. Stopped listening after that.

all mgmt ranges from crap to boring outside of a few songs off congratulations. Gus likes the first album because, by the bands own admission, its the result of shrewd analytics and market manipulation.
No one is unaffected by Time To Pretend, don't lie. It's like Abba or Enya or Running Up The Hill. And the lyrics are great
 
There’s an energising effect, an anti depressant, I feel that other ways of being are possible and tangible, I doubt myself lesss, there’s a sense of urgency , it’s easier to focus and yet I can get distracted and absorbed in something I didn’t intend to, there’s enhanced acuity visually and conceptually, I feel more decisive

Well, I actually relate to this, but it's because my physical body feels so besieged

I re-read the first book in Stroud's Bartimaeus trilogy the other day, b/c found it in a thrift shop in Chicago, and the djinn are always talking about how hard it is on them to be in/inhabit a physical body. I feel that at its strongest/most fully on psychs. They've always given me body load or at least made me really acutely aware of body. I get fantasies of being a blue orb of light floating into space...

My mind tells me this is all nonsense, embodied cognition bla bla bla, but the fantasy remains

Sometimes I feel like this is healthy a healthy indulgence because it's a relatively rare state. Just indulge in it for a day etc.
