  1. Great playlist today. Amazing how getting stoned produces good music.

  2. John made a good point about the music, I was saying that the sixties and seventies inspired far cooler drug culture tunes that more recent years, he said it's because they took more creative drugs and drug use then was more about mind altering experience and deep thinking (man) whereas these days people take party drugs, like cocaine etc and don't think about higher things, they just go out and dance and the music reflects this.
