    • 1074 Words
    • 5 Pages

    enjoy these things and the music to this very day. No other music could make you feel the way psychedelic rock can. It’s as if the music just flows right through your body, taking you to places you’ve never been to inside your mind, and expanding your thoughts. Psychedelic rock had a lot of effect during its hay days, as well as LSD, and the different festivals. The first topic I feel is important to brush upon is LSD in the psychedelic rock scene. Many artists as well as fans took LSD to enhance the effects of the music. Take it from me, the music is mind expanding enough as it is. Bands that were popular around this time who experimented with LSD include Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Santana and many more. One of the most popular users of LSD was Jerry Garcia, who was a member of the Grateful Dead. LSD had become adopted by San Francisco Hippies, where often they would get together and have light shows, film projectors and live music to accompany their mind expanding experiences. More importantly, it’s a good idea to actually address the most influential artists in the counterculture, because this is what makes this a personal essay.

I spend most of my free time listening to albums by the artists I will be discussing in this essay. I’m going to first talk about Jimi Hendrix who is one of my personal favorites. Jimi Hendrix was regarded as one of the most…

    That’s fine, everyone has their own opinion. However, most people would listen to the tracks and think, “Wow, they put a lot of work into this album,” or, “This band really understands me as a person.” The album is very unique: Some of the things that we lose are mental or physical, and Bad Blood has songs about both. Take “Flaws.” The music video starts with a policeman writing down a report for a dead man (Dan Smith) on the beach; the dead man being covered in a sack beside him. The dead man…

The living people would prepare a meal and lighting up incense for the hun soul before the hun it came, and then tried to sleep or hide under the quilt to make…

    storytelling via the smaller themes. One of the products of this analysis that I find to be most intriguing is the resurrecting power of stories. O’Brien asserts that stories have the capability of bringing life back to the dead, and are a form of immortality. Revolving around a war, it is no surprise that The Things They Carried contains death multiple times in almost every chapter. However, most of the fatalities are not random casualties of war; they are people that the narrator keeps…
