By R.U. Sirius, Timothy Leary, posted on August 28, 2012

Timothy Leary ranted to Lord Nose and myself for High Frontiers at his Hollywood home in 1987.  In “honor” of the Republican Convention in Tampa Florida, I now present the part where he goes off on Ronald Reagan and the War On Drugs, which the Reagan’s really started (you could say they escalated it, since […]

By R.U. Sirius, posted on August 10, 2012

Half a lifetime ago, I flew from JFK to the Oakland airport with the intention of starting the “Neopsychedelic Wave” — by starting a magazine, a rock band and a political organization of some undetermined nature.  Now that the world is a gassy utopia full of happy starchildren sucking peace -and-love lollipops on space colonies […]
