ingredients (other than the power of Kabbalah water)
Taurine (1000mg) is a very important amino acid involved in a large number of metabolic processes and can become essential under certain circumstances. Taurine is important in the visual pathways, the brain, nervous system and cardiac function.

Glucuronolactone (100mg) is a naturally-occurring metabolite, a carbohydrate produced by the metabolic system. It helps accelerate and eliminate harmful substances found in the body.

Riboflavin (1.36mg) Vitamin B2 is important to energy metabolism (processing nutrients like protein, fat, carbohydrate to a form of energy that the body can use), normal eyesight and healthy skin. Riboflavin is an essential vitamin.

Niacinamide (20mg) Vitamin B3 is required for cell respiration, helps in the release of energy and metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, proper circulation and healthy skin, functioning of the nervous system.

Pantothenic Acid (5mg) Vitamin B5, a B-complex vitamin, is essential for growth, reproduction, and normal physiological functions. It is involved in more than 100 different metabolic pathways including energy metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, and the synthesis of lipids, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones, porphyrins and hemoglobin.

Pyridoxine (5mg) Vitamin B6 assists the immune system and the growth of new cells. It is also used in the processing and metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, while assisting with controlling your mood. It assists in the balancing of sodium and potassium as well promotes red blood cell production. It is further involved in the nucleic acids RNA as well as DNA. It is further linked to cancer immunity and fights the formation of the toxic chemical homocysteine, which is detrimental to the heart muscle.

Cobalamin (0.0048mg) Vitamin B12's primary functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. B12 is necessary for the rapid synthesis of DNA during cell division. B12 is also important in maintaining the nervous system. Nerves are surrounded by an insulating fatty sheath comprised of a complex protein called myelin. B12 plays a vital role in the metabolism of fatty acids essential for the maintenance of myelin.

Trimethylxanthine (100mg) also known as Caffeine. Medically, it is useful as a cardiac stimulant. Recreationally, it is used to provide a "boost of energy" or a feeling of heightened alertness. It's often used to stay awake longer -- college students and drivers use it to stay awake late into the night.

PHRONESIS

the album
different kinds of lodges
looks interesting...

from their bio:
PHRONESIS would like to express emotions through music. Far beyond political ideas, they speak of self fulfilment, virtues of singularity and cultural wealth. They develop themes such as life, death, love, hate and philosophical attitudes.
The music is electronical ambient, dark, ethnic and tribal, especially with the addition of exotic instruments such as tablas, Tibetan instruments, didjeridoo, etc.


fuck yeah

metafilter notices sativex

The Lesson of Sativex - By approving liquid marijuana, the Canadian government has just certified that virtually everything our own (American) government has been telling us about marijuana is wrong
Four different formulations are currently being investigated, including High THC, THC:CBD (narrow ratio), THC:CBD (broad ratio) and High CBD.

It also had this little bit of creepy: GW is also developing a specialist security technology that will be incorporated in all its drug delivery systems. This technology allows for the recording and remote monitoring of patient usage to prevent any potential abuse of its cannabis-based medicines. Remote monitoring?

with teeth - nin

(a little bird played this for mE) there is no doubt in my mind that this is the most blatantly pro-'chaos current' cd of trent's yet

he's the hierophant (with the nine nails above the head as per frieda's painting)

the songs beside you in time & right where it belongs cinch it for me - I'm geting the dual disk for the surround sound remix (since I dug halo 8DE so much) & already have tickets for the first denver show

& rumor has it klintron might be at that show as well

LEX3N

lexen's site is fully updated, and well worth checking out.


if you've never heard any of their music, there's a video & 3 mp3's here

if you're in denver at this very moment, you could be seeing them live

(The bios aren't up yet...)

updates, articles worth a second look

I just filled out the blog's sidebar with more links (after a long period of ignoring the links)

in addition, these key23 threads all deserve more readers:

The Modern Magician As Shaman


a few thoughts on Kabbalah, Chaos magic and Multivalent Reality


A General Call For Rituals

fiction snippet

"Of course a well-developed They-system is necessary--but it's only half the story. For every They there ought to be a We. In our case there is. Creative paranoia means developing at least as thorough a We-system as a They-system--"
"Wait, wait, first where's the Haig and Haig, e a gracious host, second what is a 'They-system,' I don't pull Chebychev's Theorem on you, do I?"
"I mean what They and Their hired psychiatrists call 'delusional systems.' Needless to say, 'delusionals' are always officially defined. We don't have to worry about questions of real or unreal. They only talk out of expediency. It's the system that matters. How the data arranges themselves inside it. Some are consistent, others fall apart. Your idea that Pointsman sent Gloaming takes a wrong fork. Without any contrary set of delusions--delusions about ourselves, which I'm calling a We-system--the Gloaming idea might have been all right--"
"Delusions about ourselves?"
"Not real ones."
"But officially defined."
"Out of expediency, yes."
"Well, you're playing Their game, then."
"Don't let it bother you. You'll find you can operate quite well. Seeing as how we haven't won yet, it isn't really much of a problem."...

It's a little bewildering--if this is a "We-system," why isn't it at least thoughtful enough to interlock in a reasonable way, like They-systems do?
"That's exactly it," Osbie screams, belly-dancing Porky into a wide, alarming grin, "They're the rational ones. We piss on Their rational arrangements..."
"Hoorah!" cry the others.

Pothead Grandmother Spared Jail

Patricia Tabram from East Lea in the northern tip of England, who said she uses cannabis to alleviate pains in her neck and back, pleaded guilty to possession of the drug with intent to supply.

But Judge David Hodson said he would not make a "martyr" of her when she returned to Newcastle Crown Court for sentencing. Instead, she received a six-month suspended prison sentence.

The white-haired, bespectacled granny was unrepentant, and said she would keep cooking with pot.

"I had it this morning in my scrambled eggs and I'll have it again for lunch. I'm not giving it up," she told Channel 4 news.

Tabram has become a symbol for Britain's legalize marijuana campaign. On her Web Site, www.grandma-eats-cannabis.com, she promises soon to provide free recipes, as well as tea towels and mugs for sale.



(it's probably good for her heart too)

PawSee is a hidden track placed 23 seconds into track 13.

ohGr - SunnyPsyOp


for over a year I've been listening to this album, and I still can't get enough of it. The CD comes with a flash file video of maJiK

my desktop wallpaper is screen shots of the video spliced together so I could read the poem stashed in the video

(guess I'm a fan)

Lyrics from EnDai:

will this ever end?
will together end
once it starts again
will it ever end?

face the resolution
how did we get here?
years and years of cushions
placed upon your ears.


btw - news.google "dead wrong" right now

are we all insane? I mean honestly...via ded space

Debora Hobbs is challenging North Carolina's law against cohabitation. Hobbs was told by her supervisor to either resign her job as a sheriff's department dispatcher or marry her live-in partner. She resigned, and on Monday, the ACLU filed a suit on her behalf that challenges North Carolina's rarely enforced law that prohibits unrelated persons of different genders from living together.

article:
Woman Sues Over N.C. Anti-Cohabitation Law
The legal arm of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina filed the lawsuit Monday on her behalf.

The lawsuit seeks to abolish the nearly 200-year-old -- and rarely enforced -- law that prohibits unmarried, unrelated adults of the opposite sex from living together. North Carolina is one of seven states with such a law.

Convicted offenders face a fine and up to 60 days in jail.
