Bandcamp Friday – May 2021

Tomorrow is Bandcamp Friday again. That means Bandcamp will not take a commission on the music they sell. Very nice of them.

My entire catalog on Bandcamp will be discounted 15%. The code word for the discount is “spring”. If you thought about getting high definition FLAC files so you can hear the music in all its dimension, tomorrow is the day. :-)

MDMA Reaches Next Step

MDMA Reaches Next Step Toward Approval for Treatment – The New York Times:

In an important step toward medical approval, MDMA, the illegal drug popularly known as Ecstasy or Molly, was shown to bring relief to those suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder when paired with talk therapy.

As far as I know, MDMA only became illegal in the summer of 1986. At least that’s what I was told by my dealer. ;-)

Prior to that time it was also used by a number of prison psychiatrists. I heard it was used in the State Prison near Santa Fe, for example, and I was told it made a difference, as it enabled hardened men to speak about their emotions.
