Here’s an idea for those seeking a total head-exploding mental escape…

Load the full version of Sleeps Dopesmoker in your iPod 9see previous post on this most excellent classic of stoner doom metal from the guys who went on to form High on Fire….)

Go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Walk to the right of the main staircase through the miniscule Byzantine Section while taking out the iPod and placing the buds in your ears. Start the song while in the reproduction of the medieval church. Wait five seconds…then walk through the European Decorative Arts section with the song playing as loud as your ears will tolerate….

Trust me, it works.
