I'm in your loft, checking out your ghostbusters.

It's high noon in Woolwich, London, and four dedicated psychonauts are preparing themselves for a nice lunch... of LSD. We're each taking 2 100 microgram hits at 1pm, and we've got ourselves holed up in my trip fortress in the loft of a converted Napoleonic munitions factory, with the phones unplugged and only this forum as our window to reality. The cast for today:

Goons:

Major Failure Male, 5'9", 14.5 stone, spirit guide: Al Swearengen


Resonance Male, 5'9", 11 stone, spirit guide: Doctor Zoidberg


Street_Hotdog Male, 6'6", 15.5 stone, spirit guide: Geodude


Non-Goon:

codename stoatzart Female, 5'8" , 9.5 stone, spirit guide: Deinocheirus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deinocheirus)

All four of us have done shrooms together twice and weed countless times, while resonance, hotdog and myself have a longer history of doing shrooms together. We spent last night smoking bowls and listening to various things, and we're just finishing rigging the place up for tripping before we drop the tabs and start watching David Attenborough's Planet Earth.

Street hotdog is hanging up a colossal image of ganesh in front of one of our big windows, Resonance is mooching around drinking juice and sorting the kitchen out, and Stoatzart is taking a shower.

Wish us luck guys; the three of us goons will be posting our thoughts and reflections throughout the next twelve hours or so, so join us at 1pm GMT for the crunch.

Just another preliminary post here. Last night was quite a wild one. I drank two huge bottles of Nigerian lager, and being the lightweight that I am, woke up with a bit of sore head. I've got a bit of a sniffle too, but since I've seen that episode of House where Hugh Laurie drops LSD to cure a migraine I figure I'll be just fine.

Major Failure has a mild case of the runs, so you may be wise to anticipate a pants-making GBS threads extravaganza.

We've also got a Wii in the house. Plasma Pong is going to blow my mind, although I realise that playing games may be the last thing I want to do when we're knee deep in the mire.

We're a close-knit group, so it should be good times. We were snapping at each other this morning over absolutely nothing, but I put that down to the pre-trip jitters.

Soundgarden's on the jukebox right now. Things aren't looking so good... I'm looking California and feeling Minnesota. I'm British. Is Minnesota really that bad a place?

Something is definitely up, guys. I've got some tingly arms and a strange stomach, and I started seeing watercolour flashes of colour in the medium-lit bathroom across white surfaces. Something is definitely up.

The others are starting to feel it too. Weighty arms. Classic cue that we all felt on shrooms.

Looking forward to seeing a beautiful sunset.

Anxiety departing, excitement washing in.

Resonance:

Full-body tingles kicking in. Think we're all pretty much on the same page right now.

Just had to turn Planet Earth off because it started seeming a bit too violent.

Strapping ourselves in for what could be a bumpy ride. Tripping in the daylight is quite a novelty. Don't think I'd want to try playing the Wii right now.

The bathroom tiles were looking very strange a moment ago. Started seeing streaks of light shooting across the squares. Bodily functions felt weird too.

Listening to Porcupine Tree 'Trains'. Clichéd? Absolutely.

Euphoria kicking in. Watching the raging River Thames out of the window. Incredibly intense. The music is ripping me apart right now.

Seems like a more peaceful, gradual comeup than shrooms. Enjoying it very much. Think my peripheral vision is starting to get a little cheeky...

after a brief consultation with our spirit guides (staring at low-quality images on a dirty laptop screen) we decided that we're all on our own from here. geodude has turned his back on me. that said, just the sensation of typing is gloooorious right now.

major failure - "if you think you're not hosed, try eating a bloody GRAPE!" (throwing grapes in all directions)

upon eating this grape, i can conclude that i AM hosed.

yeah, I think I'm definitely sideways now.

The music wire just came out of our laptop and it was like not being able to breathe for a minute - we all flapped until we had the pipe plugged back in!

This is remarkably odd, I have that quintessentially psychedelic feeling of being very "deeply within" something, as if there were a lot of thoughts looming around my immediate sphere of perception, queuing for my attention and clustering to observe my field of vision at the same time.

While I have been typing this post I would definitely say I had "come up",just shy of eighty five minutes into this adventure.

Resonance has just commented that he, too, has the "under the sea" feeling.

Yeah, definitely on acid now. That's rather wonderful.

we just came back indoors after a short trip to the outside world. just when i think i'm getting used to the stage i'm at, some joker comes running up behind me and shoves 3dglasses over my eyes. enjoying some cherries atm. mental images of attending a cocktail party in this state. i think i just drank the concept of flowers.

great sense of urgency.

Resonance: Incredibly disorientated now. Not even sure if I'm tripping or not. It's like I've forgotten the difference between altered states and normal ones. Very odd. Listening to Prince 'Jam of the Year', of all things. Music is loving me up with its complexity.

Stoatzart's getting some visuals now. All still very cerebral for me. Two hours? Not sure now.

Trip's got a very primal tone to it. Really can not place where my mind is.

major failure here. The adverts at the bottom of the screen are making me want to join goon squad, and I've no loving clue what that even is. Sounds a good idea though, doesn't it?

Prince is surprisingly good acid music, although I never would have suggested it myself.

thought: the word "suggested" would look a lot better as "suggceted"

something with a c anyway

where was I?

I have a real urge to play some dwarf fortress. I've got a horrible feeling I'd do quite well at it as well. I keep getting the strange sensation I coud live an ordinary life like this, but then I just piss myself laughing because I am tripping balls.

Haha, prince! what an idiot. style, indeed.

actually, this is quite important. I really ought to say my piece, although this is all getting a bit spider jerusalem. In my head, that is. Not on the page. I think that's at the root of the problem I'm trying to describe... there's a very slim thread in between perception and art, and it's only made of words. And words are remarkably fragile things.

major failure here again. I seem to be having a somewhat extended period at the keyboard here, so I'll make this my last. Over to someone else now, although I'm happy with how succinct that was.

The Ganesh wall hanging is proving to be a big hit. The other three are rocking out over there right now.

poo poo. Street hotdog just put some 3D glasses on me. That's different. Good to have trip companions, that's for sure.

Failure just said "Being on LSD from moment-to-moment is like shuffling a pack of cards, and every now and then you get the 'acid card,' but you're not sure when you have it. Or something like that.

As soon as I can get a handle on this trip I keep feeling like it dumps me back in to a different level.
