In honor of today's LSD anniversary, a sale on The Family Acid: California

On April 19, 1943, Swiss chemist Albert Hoffman ingested 240 micrograms of lysergic acid diethylamide, a curious compound he had synthesized for possible use as a respiratory and circulatory stimulant. An hour later, Hoffman wrote one sentence in his journal: "Beginning dizziness, feeling of anxiety, visual distortions, symptoms of paralysis, desire to laugh." As he rode his bicycle home, the effects intensified. Eventually though, the fear gave way to wonder. "Little by little I could begin ...

Weirdly, It’s A Great Time To Pitch A TV Show

Of course, streaming services are dominating at the moment for whenever the industry can start shooting again. “The market is active enough that even companies with stacked-up development slates, like HBO Max, are shopping, said one Hollywood literary agent. ‘They have FOMO, so they’re still taking Zoom pitches from writers.'” – Slate

A String Quartet Is Crushed By The Virus

The Tesla Quartet, founded in 2008, was doing OK, even well, at last. “The four players, aged 34 to 38, have long relied on relatives, friends and concert presenters for temporary housing, while stashing their few possessions in a storage locker. Only during the past year did their advance bookings give them the confidence and means to rent their own apartments in New York.” Then … well, you know what happened. – The New York Times

I’m so overwhelmed; you just have so much emotion at the end of each day, so I’...

Garth Greenwell Thinks More Writers Should Write About Sex

Greenwell, the author of What Belongs to You and Cleanness, compares his new book to Schubert’s Winterreise and says, “It’s not that I think writing sex explicitly is in and of itself interesting, but that what interested me was the combination of sex with the kind of sentence I’m attracted to – a sentence with a history that comes through Proust and James and Woolf and Baldwin.” – The Guardian (UK)

The Apocalypse Tapestry May Be Perfect For Our Current Lives

The tapestry, which depicts in 100 medieval panels the Book of Revelations, is a vivid glimpse into how people lived through plague and war. And: “It is remarkable that the tapestry still exists, given that during the French Revolution it was looted, cut into pieces and used as floor mats and blankets for horses.” – The Guardian (UK)
