What are you guys reading at the moment?
    #605177 - 01/14/12 03:38 AM (9 years, 10 months ago)

Well school just started for me here, so along the great number of anthropology texts I'll have to read during semester, I like reading some books for myself...

I just finished Charles Baudelaire's "Les paradis artifitiels" (Artificial Paradises) a book on opium, hashish (dawamesk) & wine, written in the 1800's, really an incredible book, that guy was writing in a really beautiful, poetic, imaginary way. I seriously recommend it to everyone.


Also read the life of Bob Marley in comics (like a comic book?), took me 2 days to read it, that book is full of details quite unkown about Bob, it also explain the political/economical/etc. situation of Jamaica during his lifetime... How his manager robbed them for years (and got his face beaten by Mr. Marley & his friends), all his other girlfriends he had along with his wife(or girlfriend, I don't remember if he ever married her). etc. etc. etc. If you ever manage to find the book, BUY it, quite worth it. There is like 2-3 pages of text, then 3-4 pages comic about the text, each comics are made/drew by a different person, so there are a lot of styles, some are really talented, great drawings!


I just started "Junky" by William S. Burroughs, seems really interesting at the moment!


What about you guys?

I just finished Junky by William S. Burroughs, was really a great book, although I find that the writer lacks of emotions in a way, seems almost like a psychopath... In the book, he has a wife, but only mention her like twice, in the whole book, just saying she helped get an advocate. He write about some horrible things related to opiates, seems to think its no big a deal... For example, he wrote about injecting in a vein of the dick, or in the eye, quite fucked up shit! Anyway, I liked it a lot, learned a lot from that book.

Now starting The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

I'll have to try to find a version of Food of the Gods in french, if it even exists!

Seems really interesting, I wonder if it is similar to the Psychedelics Encylopedia (online)

It exists, but according to amazon it's out of print and the book stores that turn up on google don't seem to have it either, here's more details on the translators, isb, title, etc.

Just found a site claiming there's a copy of the book in a library in Quebec, check it out here.

Really nice man, thanks you very much! I'll try to order it at a bookstore not far from my home.

If I cannot find it, I'll order it online I guess
Thanks you for looking it for me, much appreciated!
:sambergfive:

Edit: It actually happen to be at the library of my University  :loldongs:

Yeah, I really enjoyed it.


Right now I am reading quite a few things.


Shroom by Andy Letcher

this is really great book. A really good "psychedelic" read based on logic without all the new agey stuff.



The Bhagadava Gita

This book is really incredible. Came into my life at the perfect time. :heart::aum:


and quite a few other books, Nietzsche- Beyond Good & Evil as well as Human All Too Human.

I just finished The Metamorphosis by Frank Kafka, it was really incredible, it is about a guy who wake up a morning transformed into a huge insect, he lives with his family so it kinda fuck thangs up!

Now I am wondering if I should start reading The Doors of Perception or Alice in Wonderland....

G. I. Gurdjieff was quite the human being.


I got to meet and dance/talk/eat/meditate/drum/exist with the author of this one. This guy is like a prism for the light of truth, refracting it into a spectrum visible to those willing to look.
