A documentary showcasing the life and art of Grant Morrison has recently been made free to the public. Talking With Gods is a biographical look at Morrison’s life, influences, magic and art.
Learn a bit of magic and reprogram your reality. Or just watch the movie and read some good comics. Same thing.
This next video is Grant singing a song given to him by the spirit of John Lennon during a chaos magic ritual. Those of you who have read Morrison’s “The Invisibles” will recognize the scene from the very first issue of the series.
If you ever wanted to learn chaos magic then here’s Grant’s seminal Disinformation speech on the basics. Mandatory watching for anyone interested in sculpting at least three dimensions.
Süperfad’s latest short film, directed by Nando Costa, explores the connections between science, mathematics and music. Drawings representing a musical score are released into stylized landscapes that illustrate conditions through which sounds travel. These drawn representations react in different ways when traveling through the desolate landscapes, transforming into impossible musical instruments and altering elements in the environment along the way. The film’s structure is defined by World Gang’s music composition, which features classic instruments altered electronically to create the track. Working in a push and pull relationship, the film’s video and audio abstractions unite in an experience that is both otherworldly and rooted in tradition.

DMT: The Spirit Molecule is a fascinating documentary about dimethyltriptamine (DMT) a chemical endogenously produced by the human pineal gland. The DMT experience is most commonly described with one word: ‘ineffable’.

If you’re interested in filmic visions of DMT there are two incredibly excellent films to check out.
Enter the Void is the story of a young man in Tokyo whose consciousness is ejected from his body when he is suddenly killed. The film takes place entirely from a first person point of view as the disembodied consciousness floats over Tokyo entering different buildings and lives in the course of choosing whether or not to reincarnate. The first 5 minutes of the film has a pretty decent DMT sequence.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s the DMT sequence:
Renegade (aka Blueberry in the U.S.) is another film that very accurately portrays a DMT experience. This one is by far the best visualization and sound design however the inspiration is a melange of ayahuasca and mescaline.
On a similar subject, 5-MeO-DMT, a similar chemical to N,N-DMT, has recently been scheduled by the U.S. government as an illegal substance. Here’s a little discussion on the difference between the two chemicals.
