Oneness with Zain - LSD Microdosing  

My course of microdosing spanned over the course of 30 days. I dosed on three-day intervals, microdosing one day and having two days off before my next dose. The dosage ranged from 6 to 12 drops of a 15mL vial that contained one dissolved tab of LSD. At work I was increasingly motivated to plough through menial tasks, children’s poor behaviour and general shittiness didn’t bring me down. I was finally content at work.

Wake in Fright: The mystery of our mythic outback self

There’s a paradox driving mateship. “Have a drink, mate” – a gesture of openness, an invitation to enter sanctioned male spaces, to participate in heavily coded male behaviour. But simultaneously, as the “first commandment” of a culture of “aggressive hospitality” and “virile togetherness,” as described in the Preface to the film’s script

Getting to know artist: Violette Kirton

My work for Yeah Nah Yeah will look at a modern pilgrimage, something that will take the audience on a journey.

Andy & Appleby get 3D

I guess the concept of art or creativity in general is what drives me. I have always been amazed by what people come up with their minds, and how it evolves. And a lot of times, the art becomes greater than the artist behind it.

TOP END SOUNDS, DOWN UNDER

The beautiful hiss of an opening beer rings out as we sit on the back verandah of Chris Blancato’s home studio in Kellyville. The verandah which used to overlook five acres of serene Australian bushland now has a cul-de-sac about 5 metres away.

SYDNEY - A CHANGING CITY.

We are living in a time where systems of power are becoming increasingly resistant from moving in a rational direction, and becoming irrevocably committed to their ignorant and outdated ideologies.

Getting to Know Artist: Kate Dunn

Your art looks like scenes that has come straight from a children’s picture book - are there any shows or books from your childhood which inspire you?

I wouldn’t say consciously but I loved monsters and spooky things from a very young age. I loved the Deltora Quest series by Emily Rodda, and one time the illustrator from it came to my primary school and showed us how he did the art and I remember thinking it was really cool. I also really loved cartoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Ren and Stimpy, where the animation was bright and over the top but really weird and unsettling at the same time.

Sippin' on some Bin Juice

Bin Juice can blow your mind in the most chill way possible. They're instrumental jams are tasteful and they've got hooks that are smooth like butter. We got to have a chat to the boys to find out more about their latest record Watermellon.
