Animiert: John Lennons erster Acid Trip

Beim Rolling Stone haben sie sich mal Teile eines Interviews genommen, das John Lennon bezüglich seines ersten LSD-Trips gegeben hat und haben diese animieren lassen. Ich habe mir das sehr viel lebendiger vorgestellt, aber ich habe halt auch keine Ahnung – von Animation.

It was spring 1965. Lennon and his wife, Cynthia, and Harrison and his wife, Pattie Boyd, were attending a dinner at the London home of dentist John Riley and his girlfriend, Cyndy Bury. Before the foursome left, Riley asked them to stay for coffee, then urged them to finish their cups. Shortly after, he told Lennon he had placed sugar cubes containing LSD in the coffee. Lennon was furious. “How dare you fucking do this to us?” He knew something about the drug: It was a powerful hallucinogen – termed a psychedelic – and it caused changes in thoughts, emotions and visions that frightened some observers. Psychologist Timothy Leary had famously been fired from Harvard University in 1963 for conducting experimental therapeutic sessions with the substance.
