189/365 – Swisher Sweets Nostalgia
Image by danbruell
I saw this wrapper on the sidewalk and it quickly reminded me of some of my early smokey days from the 70′s. I came of age in the 70′s and for some reason back then it was legal for minors to purchase cigars but not cigarettes. Me and my buddies would typically acquire a five-pak of Swisher Sweets and hang out in the park smoking and getting a fine ol time. FWIW – I have not smoked these or other tobacco goods given that about 1978. Breathe deep !

Prophetic Conspirators: Psychedelic Water 27>
The mess accumulates and energy swells as adventurous travelers strut toward the promise of a genuinely psychedelic knowledge – an indelible climax to the weekend’s hedonistic foreplay. By midday throngs already amass in the painted streets and shaded byways of the far out little village of Nimbin. Saturday’s brilliantine noonday heat transforms the vibrant subtropical splendour of the verdant landscape into a viridian radiance of enervating humidity. The autumnal atmosphere verges back into the sweaty green steambath situations frequent in the course of the final handful of years’ runaway greenhouse summers.
But untrammeled vigour still imbues the eagerly expectant assembly of freaks, straights, tourists and wannabe contenders with unabated intensity as they mingle and jostle for the year’s finest buds, heads, colas and other much less combustible comestibles. A demi-multitude straggles into town along gravel tracks and bitumen arteries, undeterred by the heat of climate catastrophe or police state shenanigans.
The locals are completely outnumbered. Garbage bins overflow along the crowd-filled footpaths as thousands of camera wielding, quickly food chomping visitors from despoiled lands of drear normality throng and mix, deal and fix, see and be observed beneath banners of the rainbow tribes and the all-seeing eyes of robotic surveillance cams. Spectrum-spanning painted faces stud the baseball capped crowd in chaotic arcs of rainbow colours, a properly laundered shimmering sea of shiny black-and-blue-clad suburbanites.
Why don’t you speak of what you’ve noticed? The shaman muses as he rises from his seat to leave the Oasis. Is it just egotistic concerns more than credibility – or a matter of not speaking of things which do not want to be known?
Numerous of the guests exist beneath a perennial stupor of paranoia in ‘normal’ workaday lives – fearing loss of station or job, marriage or children, afraid of peer or parental disapproval and all the other snares and grasping adhesions of the noxious social glue that holds the hive in which they’re enmeshed with each other – even, specifically, while walking and gawking down the major and nearly only street of World Hippie Central. The alternative-minded but socially camouflaged throng doesn’t however realise that they represent most of the world’s men and women – non-conformists at heart, who all reside under the self-imposed harness of unnecessary fears, weighed down by the pointless guilt so keenly felt by true innocents deprived of normal human requirements, and made to really feel inferior when they seek to satisfy their needs.
All yearn for release from the straightjacket asylum of a barely post-feudal civilisation run by lunatic manage freaks.
The ages-old witch and shaman ride inside us all, suppressed or oppressed or free as a bird and all of us are hankering following a flavour that leads to the taste of other dimensions, fresher views – zestier, a lot more riveting impressions of the sumptuous reality through which we otherwise drift like limbo-bound wraiths and automatons.
Most Mardi Grass revelers couldn’t give a damn about hypocritical, unjust laws and surely know they’re not damaged or damned, but blessed to be out and about in one of the brightest, freest instances and places in all the vast murky realms of human history.
Everyone’s here to celebration and knowledge unseen sights and untried delights hippies, yuppie ‘aspirationals’, dreadlocked Rastas and dreaded ferals, priests, politicians, students, Television crews and reporters and backpacking travellers from all round the globe, shopkeepers, soldiers, massive and little old guys and girls, checkout chicks, attorneys, bureaucrats, proud parents carrying brightly bedecked newborn babes, emigrant Greek fishermen, Indian software writers and contact centre voices, emo Goths – and any person else not interested in being an active element of the subtly feudal friendly fascist police surveillance state of impersonal corporate Massive Brother clones and militant industrialists – and all are looking for the selfsame source of the philosophers, stoned. A broad cross-section is represented, as they say, and just about everyone’s smiling.
Fleecy clouds begin coalescing in the wide open sky’s much more distant margins, blowing apart in this late Interglacial Age’s inexorably increasing winds. The Rainbow Region is multiply blessed with rich soil and Sun, sea breezes and rain, luxuriantly lush and deliriously green even at the end of a historic nationwide mother of all droughts, and for the first time the annual parade will be free of charge of the double-edged benison of rain.
A good year for curing the mull, if you appear on the vibrant side… Could be a great vintage… The shamanic prince’s thoughts flit hither and yon while he makes a sine wave beeline for the wonderful Strangler Fig. The Tree of Life beckons, arching across the market place ground’s outdoor stage as he strides via streams of fossicking punters hovering round myriad stalls and jewellery-strewn blankets. The future’s so vibrant we’ll have to put on shades…
He reaches the Chai Tent and gratefully slides into a mismatched litter of comfy cushions on the hempen expanse of canvas flooring. Every single and every single Mardi Grass, the space beneath the marketplace site’s grand old fig is reserved for the Chai Tent, correct beside the covered stage. The chai’s usually good – if you wait for it to properly brew – gingery and purifying for the partied-out and jaded throng recovering from the pleasant excesses of Friday night.
Following taking a breath Ram’yana rises to inspect a tasty array of homemade natural cakes even though John ladles some brew into a varied menagerie of ceramic cups. Muzza and John are standard fixtures at most alternative events, their friendly bearded familiar faces ever beaming behind fluttering prayer flags and political messages. They aid their most recent batch of eager helpers mix chai, coffee, teas and munchies beneath the generously shady green canopies of tree and marquee.
These days only half the food vendors in the ‘alternative’ township spend any consideration to actual human or environmental health, beyond ubiquitous legal specifications of sanitation, hygiene and the like. Most of what they sell to paying shoppers is toxic crap, just like the stuff most human folk will eat before, in the course of or immediately after reading these words.
But in Nimbin the other half are still wonderfully fastidious and most nearby generate is fairly organic. It is been decades because aerial spraying of Agent Orange was frequent in these parts – in a saleable type with a slightly various brand name, of program, sprayed directly into the waterways and everywhere else when the hippies first arrived one particular a lot more lasting legacy of war’s fine record of ongoing ‘technological advancement’.
In Vietnam the peasants had no thought what was taking place to them, but in Oz and other ‘advanced’ nations they sprayed tetragenic toxic herbicides on their own cropland, water, animals and farming households and newcomer hippies alike. Still do. Even in the ‘developed world’, the peasants are also ignorant or naive to realise that poison is poison is poison, and that all the products of Large Pharma and Huge Oil and Large Brother are noxious, toxic, persistent carcinogens and/or other agents of insidious slow death. Speed kills. So does strychnine, arsenic, Agent Orange, Roundup and irradiated food. So do preservatives, colourings, bleaches, flavours, microwave radiation and most of the other shit floating around in human bloodstreams in the early Third Millennium.
And men and women wonder why they feel stoned all the time, why so many promising lives finish so swiftly.
It’s worth remembering, even if it is unbelievable to most – three quarters of everything you consume, drink, breathe, touch, paint on your self or put on is toxic, carcinogenic and debilitating. In a world where you rely on other people rather of nature, all the crap you acquire is produced for creating income, not for your health. As any individual toxic compound combines with all the other stuff in a ‘modern’ human physique in ever far more chaotic synergy, it’s no surprise almost absolutely everyone in the modern day globe is walking wounded, half asleep, barely right here – function-playing the parts of automata in an industrial nightmare instead of becoming here now. Not to mention residing ridiculously short, painful lives, in continuous fear of the puzzling rebellion of the unknown, unstudied territories of their own bodies and minds.
The only way out is in, to produce an inner place of peace unaffected by the turmoil, the inner sanctuary from which all imagination and creativity and immunity spring – and OUT, moving far away from the worst crap, stuff and nonsense of feudal capitalism, to at least attempt a diverse life in the final remnants of a healthier planet. To bring every single ‘lost’ dream all the way back from the final seed-supply heartlands that still survive, and develop new lives that preserve those heartlands sacred and inviolate. To grow a healthy world with a entire glowing soul. That’s the dream that most pursue or seek or view full on the busy streets of Nimbin.
Right here in the Rainbow Region a generation of brave beings has largely succeeded in their try to alter the planet inside their horizon. The Nimbin Mardi Grass is barely a tenth of a greater green iceberg lurking just out of sight of The Grey Man and his equally hideous hidebound mate, the all-consuming Shopping Bitch. Option notions have evolved into a hidden however subtly influential nation nestled within the recovering rainforest canopy. Its denizens have no need to have to officially secede from the larger notional paradigm of Oz – nothing secedes like achievement.
The Prince of Centraxis makes it possible for a multitude of voices wash more than him by way of the amplified reggae horn section while Celtic harpists operate the crowd from the psychedelic stage “We all have the Buddha and the Troll within”, a bearded man in saffron is saying to a group of escaped students beneath the hemp tarpaulin. “Which do you favor to give rein, and permit to reign by means of you?”

“Nah – her mum. Right here – attempt some o’ this…”
“You know they had to let Rusty off all the charges?”
“Why? Since he was picked up by that flying saucer?”

Dan Fogelberg (1951 – 2007)
Image by guano
Dan Fogelberg, local boy here (central Illinois) passes away on Beethoven’s birthday. I used to sing Dan’s songs “Face the Fire” and "There’s a Place in the World for a Gambler" when I was learning guitar. “Face the Fire” was his anti-nuclear anthem, after the Three Mile Island accident.
In 1980 I saw Dan up close, playing for 150,000 anti-nuke activists on the capital lawn in Washington DC. He had changed the chorus of “Gambler” into a solar power thing. Everyone was singing along “Let it shine, oh let it shine” with our arms swaying in the air. He kept repeating the chorus and we wereall singing along so that Jimmy Carter could hear us in the White House.
The WHOLE CROWD was swaying back and forth with our arms in the air, and the place was packed like sardines. At the end of the song, people had moved forward towards the stage and we discovered were so tightly together that we couldn’t get our arms back down. We were laughing, couldn’t find a place to bring down one elbow at a time. It was cosmic. Thank you for that moment, Dan! You were a soldier in the environmental army. The Earth will miss ya.
Prostate cancer got Dan at age 56. Prostate is the number one cancer for American men, ahead of colon cancer and lung cancer. It got Zappa in 1993 at age 52, and I started eating healthy salads in his honor. Stan Musial is hanging on with prostate cancer at age 87. They say when younger men get prostate cancer, it is much more virulent.
I heard that the body naturally makes a chemical that protects against prostate cancer, and about 10% of men have a deficiency in that chemical, which puts them at greater risk. This chemical is also found in the cruciferous vegetables; broccoli, radish, and cauliflower. For 14 years now I have been eating what I call a “Zappa Salad” with plenty of radish and cauliflower. I used to add raw broccoli, but I now prefer broccoli steamed with cheese, rather than in my salads.
Here’s the wikipedia bio on Dan…
Daniel "Dan" Grayling Fogelberg (August 13, 1951 – December 16, 2007) was an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, whose music was inspired by sources as diverse as folk, pop, classical, jazz, and bluegrass music.
Dan Fogelberg, the youngest of Lawrence and Margaret (Young) Fogelberg’s three sons, was born in Peoria, Illinois. His father was a high school band director who spent most of his career at Peoria Woodruff High School and Pekin High School, and his mother was a pianist. (His father would later be the inspiration for the song "Leader of the Band".) Using a Mel Bay course book, Dan taught himself to play a Hawaiian slide guitar his grandfather gave to him; he also learned to play the piano. He started his music career at age 14 when he joined his first band, The Clan, which paid homage to The Beatles. His second band was another cover combo, The Coachmen, which, in 1967, released two singles on Ledger Records: "Maybe Time Will Let Me Forget" and "Don’t Want To Lose Her."
After graduating from Woodruff High School in 1969, he studied theater arts and painting at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and began performing as a solo acoustic player in area coffeehouses. There, he was discovered in 1971 by Irving Azoff. Fogelberg and Azoff, who started his music-management career promoting another Illinois act, REO Speedwagon, moved to California to seek their fortunes. Fogelberg became a session musician who played with pop-folk artists like Van Morrison. In 1972, he released his debut album Home Free to lukewarm response. His second effort was much more successful: the 1974 Joe Walsh-produced album Souvenirs and its hit song "Part of the Plan" made him a major star.
Following Souvenirs, Fogelberg released a string of gold and platinum albums Captured Angel in 1975; his masterpiece Nether Lands in 1977 and found commercial success with songs like "The Power of Gold," "The Language of Love," and "Lonely in Love". His 1978 Twin Sons of Different Mothers was the first of two collaborations with jazz flutist Tim Weisberg. 1979′s Phoenix was his most successful with "Longer" which became a wedding standard. The Innocent Age, released in October 1981, reached the peak of critical and popular acclaim. The double album "song cycle" included three of his biggest hits: "Leader of the Band," "Hard To Say," and "Same Old Lang Syne," based on a real-life accidental meeting with a former girlfriend. in 1984 he rocked again with Windows And Walls
In 1985, Fogelberg released High Country Snows. Recorded in Nashville, it showcased his (and some of the industry’s best) talent in the bluegrass genre. Vince Gill, Jerry Douglas, David Grisman, Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen were among those who contributed to the record. in 1987, a return to rock with Exiles then a tribute to Earth preservation with 1990′s Wild Places and 1991′s live Greetings From The West
River of Souls, released in 1993, was Fogelberg’s last studio album for Sony Records. In 1997, Portrait encompassed his career with four discs, each highlighting a different facet of his music: "Ballads," "Rock and Roll," "Tales and Travels" (which displayed his talents as a narrative songwriter) and "Hits." In 1999, he fulfilled a career-long dream of creating a Christmas album called "First Christmas Morning" and, in 2003, Full Circle showcased a return to the folk-influenced, 1970s soft rock-style of music for which he and other singer-songwriters from his era had gained popular recognition.
A very personal songwriter, Fogelberg also used his music to address social issues, among them peace and Native American concerns. He was particularly outspoken about his commitment to the environment and to finding alternatives to nuclear power. To that end, Fogelberg performed at a number of the Musicians United for Safe Energy "No Nukes" concerts in 1979 and 1980.
His live concerts won acclaim across the nation over the years. Fogelberg said that one of his proudest moments came in 1979 when he played at New York’s Carnegie Hall for an audience that included his mother and father. Most summers, Fogelberg would perform with a full band or in a solo acoustic setting; the differing formats allowed the artist to show the breadth and depth of his talent as a singer, guitarist, pianist and bandleader. In 2002, fans showed their appreciation by choosing Fogelberg to be one of the first 10 inductees into the Performers Hall of Fame at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.
In May 2004, Dan Fogelberg was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He underwent hormonal therapy and achieved a partial remission, which did not eliminate his cancer, but reduced it and stopped its spread. On August 13, 2005, his 54th birthday, Fogelberg announced the success of his cancer treatments and he thanked fans for their support, but said that he had no immediate plans to return to making music, but was keeping his options open, and enjoying spending time with his wife, musician Jean Fogelberg.
Fogelberg, who, since 1982, lived on Mountain Bird Ranch, 610 acres near Pagosa Springs, Colorado, put the lavishly appointed property up for sale at an asking price of US million.
He lost his battle against cancer on December 16, 2007 at his home in Maine with his wife, Jean, by his side.
* On the September 25, 2006, episode of the NBC show Late Night with Conan O’Brien, O’Brien concluded his discussion of the controversy over Pope Benedict’s public use of a statement by a 14th century Byzantine emperor, and singer Cat Stevens’ reaction to the remarks, with the punchline: "So far, no word yet from Dan Fogelberg. [light laughter, then a pause] He was a singer back in the ’70s."
* Two of his songs have been used in feature films: "There’s a Place in the World for a Gambler" (originally on Souvenirs) can be heard in the 1978 movie FM; and "Times Like These" was used in the 1980 movie Urban Cowboy, a year before it appeared on The Innocent Age.
* In a Bloom County comic strip, the character Lola Granola confesses to having a tattoo of Dan Fogelberg’s face.
* In BASEketball the future owner of "The Beers" refers to Joe Cooper and his generation as fans of Dan Fogelberg.
* Comedian Denis Leary, on his CD "No Cure for Cancer" mentions Dan Fogelberg by saying "Heavy metal bands are on trial because kids commit suicide… Judas Priest on trial because ‘my kid bought the record, and he listened to the lyrics and na na na na na na. Well that’s great! That sets a legal precedent! Does that mean I can sue Dan Fogelberg for making me into a pussy in the mid ’70s? Is that possible? Huh? Huh? Your honor, between him and James Taylor, I didn’t get a blowjob until I was 27 years old!"

An abandoned building with faded letters — all that remains of this old head shop originially named "Definitely Different". They sold all kinds of pseudo-legal and strange items, from dildos to "belt buckles" (they had been really brass knuckles) to "water pipes" to surrealist art and blacklight posters. They also had dishes and china and some uninteresting stuff that was inexplicably present as properly. I purchased brass knuckles right here ahead of, and thankfully never ever had to use them. I lost them in the snow while sledding drunk in our apartment’s backyard with Carolyn.
The store at some point got in difficulty with the Christiansburg authoirties, and was shut down. But that did not cease their persistance. They opened a new shop, called Billy Bob’s Tobacco & Much more, on the left side of the precise identical constructing.

D.E.A. Bans Chemicals Used in ‘Bath Salts’
By ELIZABETH A. HARRIS
The Drug Enforcement Administration took emergency action on Friday to ban three synthetic stimulants used to make products that are marketed at head shops and on the Web as “bath salts,” but are actually used as recreational drugs that mimic the effects of cocaine, LSD and methamphetamine.
The emergency measure places these substances — mephedrone, methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) and methylone — under the D.E.A.’s most restrictive category for at least a year, while they study whether they should be permanently banned. This classification is reserved for substances with high potential for abuse and no accepted use under medical supervision.

Puerto Nuevo-style lobster has been a phenomenon since 1956, when several women in the tiny fishing village south of Rosarito started dropping fresh lobsters into pots of bubbling oil and serving them to a few outsiders.
Last year, the still-small-but-now-bustling Puerto Nuevo served more than 672,000 deep-fried California rock lobsters.
Dozens of restaurants in Rosarito and the surrounding area served more. More than 250 tons of the bottom-crawling crustaceans are pulled from Baja California waters each year just to feed the frenzy of lobster-loving tourists. Hundreds of additional tons are shipped in from elsewhere between mid-February and mid-September, when harvesting Baja California lobster is illegal.
Today, Puerto Nuevo boasts more than 35 side-by-side restaurants that all sell the same thing — fried lobster, beans, rice, flour tortillas, chips and salsa. To the uninitiated, confusion reigns. We’ll tell you which spots are the best, but first, a few insider tips:
Fresh vs. frozen: Most of the larger, more popular restaurants are owned or controlled by two families. This gives them the volume and ability to import live lobster from Baja California Sur and from as far away as Cancun during the months when local lobster is out of season. Smaller mom-and-pop operations are often forced to serve frozen lobster during this period. All of the restaurants we recommend serve fresh lobster year-round.
Choosing a lobster: The most tender legal lobster is the medium size, weighing from 1 to 1* pounds. Restaurant owners will admit that anything over this is tough. While very small lobsters, often called "slippers," are delicious and extremely tender, they are illegal to catch, sell or serve at any time of year.
Price: The larger, long-standing restaurants run very close in price for basic lobster dinners: about to for a full meal with a medium lobster; for a large lobster; for the extra-large "burro," which can weigh up to four pounds. The smaller restaurants have less overhead, less staff, offer fewer choices and thus can compete hard in price. But, ask the right questions before committing. If a sign outside shows " SHRIMP – ALL YOU CAN EAT," ask if that means all the shrimp you can eat or all the side dishes. If a restaurant offers five lobster tails, ask to see the size.
Just say no: Usually, you’ll be shown a tray with three different lobster sizes to choose from. The enormous "burro," grande or extra-large may look tempting, but don’t order it. According to Puerto Nuevo chefs, lobsters this large are tough and best suited for Lobster salad.
Spice it up: Ask for spicy molcajete sauce rather than the bland tomato salsa.
Side dishes: Salsa, chips, tortillas, rice and beans are all in the all-you-can-eatcategory. Don’t be afraid to ask for more of any of these, especially fresh, hot tortillas. Nobody eats flour tortillas in a restaurant once they’ve gotten cold. Before you go
Credit Cards: Not all Puerto Nuevo restaurants take credit cards. Best to bring cash or ask before you order.
Reservations: Most Puerto Nuevo restaurants do not take reservations directly, but the Rosarito Convention and Visitors Bureau (011-52-661-612-0396) is happy to make calls on your behalf.
Hours: Most restaurants are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays, winter and summer, and until 10 p.m on Friday and Saturday. A few restaurants stay open until 11:30 p.m. on summer weekends.
Getting there: Puerto Nuevo is a clearly marked village on the Old Road, 10 minutes south of downtown Rosarito. Take the Rosarito-Ensenada toll road to the Puerto Nuevo turnoff at kilometer 49. Turn left onto the Old Road and continue south a short distance to the village, which will be on your right. It is exactly 10 miles from Rosarito’s southern toll gate.
Pride of Puerto Nuevo: the best spots
The most popular restaurants in Puerto Nuevo are La Casa de Langosta, Puerto Nuevo I and II, La Escondida and Ortega’s Manuel’s. Sandra’s also is a favorite with locals, and Ortega’s Patio and the Lobster House rate a visit as well. All are winners when it comes to a great lobster dinner and are all competitively priced. Here are other considerations to help narrow your choices:
Best Menu: La Casa de Langosta. With everything from lobster burritos to lobster omelets for breakfast, this broad menu also includes steamed lobster with wine, lobster thermidor and several creative combo plates like the Seafood Combination, which features calamari, fish and lobster. You’ll also find oysters Rockefeller, along with Seven Seas soup.
Best Food: Puerto Nuevo II. Chef Enrique Murillo loves to cook, and his appetizers are as good as his lobster. Depending on the availability of fresh ingredients, they include smoked marlin with capers and chile chipotle, steamed baby clams in butter and parsley sauce, awesome octopus loaded with garlic and butter and perhaps the best mussels on the Gold Coast.
Best Atmosphere: Ortega’s Patio. The upper deck of this smaller restaurant is the\ prettiest, most charming place in Puerto Nuevo, with billowing blankets strung for shade and bougainvillea blooming all around. A nice slice of sea view and good people-watching on the main street below add to the casual atmosphere.
Best View: The Lobster House. It’s the only major restaurant on the dirt street closest to the ocean, and the upper deck here has the only unobstructed, 180-degree ocean view in the village. On a warm, sunny day, this is a splendid place to be. On windy, cool days opt for the first-floor dining room.
Best Value: The Lobster House. With almost the same menu as La Casa de Langosta (and the same ownership), this restaurant usually charges .50 to less per meal for the same size portions. The Lobster House is relatively new and has been building business with competitive pricing.
Best Wine List: La Casa de Langosta and The Lobster House. You’ll find a full selection of Baja’s top wines, including L.A. Cetto, Santo Tomas and Casa Domecq at both places. Good choices with lobster are Santo Tomas’ Blanco Seco, Cetto’s Fume Blanc and any of the Baja wineries’ Chardonnays.
Best Wait Staff: Puerto Nuevo II.
Most Kid-Friendly: Ortega’s Patio and Puerto Nuevo II.
Getting around: Puerto Nuevo is only three blocks deep. Puerto Nuevo I and II, La Casa de Langosta and La Escondida are all on the left, in that order, as you enter and head toward the sea. Ortega’s Patio and Ortega’s Manuel’s are both on the right, closest to the ocean. Sandra’s is on the second side street to the left, around the corner from Puerto Nuevo II. The Lobster House is the last restaurant to the left, on the dirt road fronting the ocean.
