Louis Wain’s cats as he progressed into schizophrenia.
Louis Wain could have seriously been a Batman villain. A successful English artist he began to paint exclusively cats after extensively painting his dying wife’s cat. He then made a living on children’s books and illustrations of anthropomorphic cats often parodying everyday life. After about 30 years he began to suffer from schizophrenia, theorized to be precipitated by toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that can be contracted from cats. After he became too paranoid and violent for his sisters to care for, he was institutionalized at the relatively pleasant Napsbury Hospital , with a garden and colony of cats. Over the next 15 years, he continued to paint cats in increasingly psychedelic depictions.
What I find so peculiar is how greatly it resembles DMT visuals…
“You just know. You don’t question it. You don’t think “maybe I love this person” and then some days you just want to hide from them. You see them and your heart drops in your stomach but not in a nervous way or scared way but just a “wow, there you are again” kind of way. And maybe its more like your soul feels the drop instead of your stomach. Whenever someone mentions their name you can’t stop yourself from smiling. When you are in love you say their name like its an intimate song only you know. You look at them and you feel something deeper than you’ve ever felt. You want to kiss and touch every part of their skin and not because you think they’re sexy but because you believe that that body was meant to be wrapped around yours. You wouldn’t mind spending the entire day in bed with them just staring at their face and marching your fingers up their back. You may even think their morning breath is cute. When you’re in love, you forget the way your ex’s eyes looked and sometimes even the sound of their laugh because an even more beautiful one has come to you. You want to kiss them for hours and hours and hours and when you do you don’t feel like that time was wasted, but really the best time you’ve spent in months. The first time this person smiles at you, you know that second that you are going to love this person with every fiber of your being, and you don’t rush it because you know that it will all fall into place when its supposed to. When you’re in love, you don’t scream and yell when there are problems but try your hardest to work through anything that’s hurting. You realize that you are the best version of yourself because that person has come into your life and showed you who you are meant to be on your deepest level. You don’t feel like anything is forced and everything is a perfect flow and movement, even when its a silly accident… When you love someone, you’ll do anything to make them happy. You let them go if they need to go. You let them love someone else if they want to love someone else. Love makes you selfless and raw, which is a beautiful thing to be.

Reblogging again because this is so much harder than it looks
Woulds speaks the truth this is fuckin incredible.
President Obama says recreational users of marijuana in states that have legalized the substance should not be a “top priority” of federal law enforcement officials prosecuting the war on drugs.
“We’ve got bigger fish to fry,” Obama said of pot users in Colorado and Washington during an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Barbara Walters.
“It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it’s legal,” he said, invoking the same approach taken toward users of medicinal marijuana in 18 states where it’s legal.
Obama told Walters he does not – “at this point” – support widespread legalization of marijuana. But he cited shifting public opinion and limited government resources as reasons to find a middle ground on punishing use of the drug.
“This is a tough problem, because Congress has not yet changed the law,” Obama said. “I head up the executive branch; we’re supposed to be carrying out laws. And so what we’re going to need to have is a conversation about, How do you reconcile a federal law that still says marijuana is a federal offense and state laws that say that it’s legal?”
The president said he has asked Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department to examine the legal questions surrounding conflicting state and federal laws on drugs.
“There are a number of issues that have to be considered, among them the impact that drug usage has on young people, [and] we have treaty obligations with nations outside the United States,” Holder said Wednesday of the review underway.
Obama wrote in his 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” that he would smoke pot regularly with his high school buddies who formed a “club of disaffection.” The group was known as the “Choom Gang,” says Obama biographer David Maraniss.
“There are a bunch of things I did that I regret when I was a kid,” Obama told Walters. “My attitude is, substance abuse generally is not good for our kids, not good for our society.
“I want to discourage drug use,” he added.
I’m not surprised by any of this. It is at the end of the day, political speak. But we got some interesting things out of his quotes that I’d like to dissect.
“We’ve got bigger fish to fry,”
It’s funny, because this speaks volumes. He goes on to say they won’t be targeting recreational users, but when he says bigger fish, people might assume he’s talking cartels, meth labs, and all that jazz. What he most likely means, judging by his countless and record-breaking raids against medical marijuana dispensaries, is that they plan on raiding only the growers, processors, and distributors in the states — ie: the big fish that feed the little fish their pot.
Of course it doesn’t make sense to prosecute recreational users, there’s no money in that. When they raid the larger-scale grows, they get to empty out the safe of all it’s cash(because marijuana businesses can’t use banks). When it’s a company, and not an individual, there’s less of a sympathetic story to get covered in the news. It’s a strategic move.
“This is a tough problem, because Congress has not yet changed the law, I head up the executive branch; we’re supposed to be carrying out laws. And so what we’re going to need to have is a conversation about, How do you reconcile a federal law that still says marijuana is a federal offense and state laws that say that it’s legal?”
Ouch. Yet another low blow from Barry. He makes it seem like he’s powerless in this whole situation, when he could easily make an Executive Order to reschedule cannabis on the Controlled Substances Act — well within his power. He apparently doesn’t have the balls to do it.
And not only that, the line “we’re supposed to be carrying out the laws” is quite disturbing. It’s his excuse for all the raids that have been occurring under his rule. ‘We’re the law enforcers, so we just follow what the paper says…*shrug*”. Funny, because if he just ‘carried out the law’, gay marriage wouldn’t be as openly accepted as it is today. He’s gone on record, even issuing an Executive Order, to stop using Justice department resources on prosecuting gay marriage cases. What about bud Barry?
“we have treaty obligations with nations outside the United States,”
Finally, he says mentions an issue that people seem to completely disregard when they cry out “Why can’t Obama just legalize it? Gosh.”. An issue that’s probably the real truth behind this whole situation.
The US has been leading the War on Drugs not only on our land, but on everyone else’s doorstep. We’ve pressured countries all over the world into making the drugs we don’t like illegal, telling them to eradicate any grows and prosecute any users. If the country leading this march suddenly changed it’s tune, all the other countries would get pretty pissed. Actually, they already have.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the US defuses this bomb they laid decades ago with their war, and how the US will handle it’s international image.
“There are a bunch of things I did that I regret when I was a kid,”
Another cop-out. Most articles I’ve read mentioning marijuana legalization have been quoting his biography, for good reason. If someone can smoke weed and snort cocaine and still become president, it can’t be all that destructive can it? But no, Barry has to discount this with his statement. Weed was a regret, even though it was illustrated in his book that he has a great time smoking with his “Choom gang”.
“My attitude is, substance abuse generally is not good for our kids, not good for our society.
Suddenly it’s substance abuse. You can’t just smoke a bowl like someone drinks a beer. You can’t spark up a joint like someone drinks a cup of coffee. You have to be abusing weed, you have to be an addict. What a disappointing perspective. I’d wonder what he’d say if you asked him if there was even a “responsible” way to use pot, as opposed to abuse.
“I want to discourage drug use,”
Coming from the guy that’s allowing prescription drugs to ruin this country. The deaths have doubled in the last decade, but prescription drugs aren’t really drugs…right? If a doctor gives you a drug, it’s medicine. Oh wait, some states do that with weed…
It’s nonsensical. It’s a safety net he’s creating for the conservative population that cry out “think of the children”. If Obama were to suddenly come out and support marijuana, there’d be a backlash of people saying that he might as well support meth heads and cocaine addicts.
Overall, I hope this interview shows the Obama supporters that assumed he might change his tune during his second term, that Obama isn’t going to change shit on his own. The only reason it’s gotten to this point is thanks to all the hard work cannabis activists have been doing in the medically and recreationally legal states. It’s thanks to the pressure that activists have been putting on Obama that he’s forced to come out and make these statements.
Obama isn’t the white knight for weed, he isn’t going to come on his stallion and free the stoners of their bonds of bud perdition. We have to fight for our right to toke.
And stay regular super stoners~
The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth
- Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
- Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
- When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.
- If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.
- Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
- Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.
- Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
- Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
- Do not harm little children.
- Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
- When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.
satan does not approve of the harming of little kids
satan disproves of rape
satan wants you to treat others the way you want to be treated
these sound better than the 10 commandments.
Are you kidding me I think these ARE better than the commandments
That awkward moment when Satan has better morals than most Christians.
