Song: “The Rip” by Portishead

Song Link: Josdigital

Video: HERE.

If Lewis Carroll was still alive today I think he would fall out of his antique rocking chair…and down the rabbit hole. This song feels almost storybook, a fantasy of literature…pulsing and rythmic yet totally spaced out. 

Turn the lights off…lay down and do whatever it is you do to get to that point where you stop thinking about all the relentless monotony of the everyday and just listen…(smoke?)… lay down…close your eyes….or keep your eyes open…whatever feels right at the time….and just ride that wave ~ ~ ~ 

The video for this song is the second tier of the full experience…see above paragraph, and repeat….but I would recommend keeping your eyes open for this part of the experiment.

Enjoy :)
