LSD Magazine interviews Mantis

South African artist Mantis has combined skills honed in fine art, a subversive spirit and a pure street attitude to create some of the most thought provoking work of the last few years. Heavyweight issues and moments of social penetration speak out in the language of flawed beauty and provoke…

Owsley Stanley – RSH

When we think of the 1960s certain inherent images and ideas come to mind. The branded version of «the 60’s’ has become so strong in the conscious of contemporary culture as a specific ideology, a specific time and place full of specific ideas, actions and outcomes. The sixties have come…

LSD Magazine interviews Laurent Garnier

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED: Issue Seven – Made in Space May 9th 2011 Ever since Laurent Garnier dropped out of a clear blue, gastronomically tinged sky and surfed synchronicity all the way to the heart of the Hacienda, he has been forging a musical legacy spanning the years, the styles, the movements…

Do Words Control the way we Think

Words do not only control the way we think, they are the way we think.  Thought is nothing more—and nothing less—than the complex interplay of signs and symbols within the human mind.  It is the process that makes order and sense out of the vast constellation of instincts, emotions, and…

LSD Magazine interviews P183

LSD Magazine interviews Laser 3.14

Enjoy this Trip – Mark Moore

There’s the famous saying that if you can remember the Sixties you weren’t really there. After Acid house I have a problem remembering anything let alone Acid house and the Eighties. Through the strawberry flavored smoke machine of my foggy mind I remember a few flashes. It started off quite…

Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious

From the dawn of humanity we have lived in a world of symbolism. Our symbols explain the world around us, our relationships with each other and our relationship to the universe. These symbols, these essences of pure being, are the primordial qualities of the truly real. In Plato’s cave light…

Ego – Ian Milne

I’m fit and healthy, have a roof over my head (rented), I eat everyday (tasty & simple food), have a car (11 years old), work for myself (which is ok) have a mobile phone, a laptop (second hand), somehow I pay my bills and have interesting friends and a loving…
