“Throughout the recording of the album, Young and his fellow musicians consumed a homemade concoction dubbed “Honey Slides”, a goop of sauteed marijuana and honey that “felt like heroin”. This may account for the mellow mood of the album[.]”
A friend of mine in college made these balls of marijuana butter rolled in like oats and granola and something else, maybe peanut butter or honey? and she called them goo balls, and people would end up at our apartment all silly on goo balls and we’d go out on the balcony and look over Cayuga Lake at the leaves changing, or walk all the way up the hill to her apartment and sit in their “backyard” which was really like a patch of grass, and anyway it is Neil Young weather and I feel like for the first 2 years of college every boy I had a crush on was a huge Neil Young fan and I was just trying to keep up.
I also just love this photo.
Some get strong, some get strange.

At the risk of having an opinion in public, that thing everyone is talking about sucks.

One of the few things I can remember my father telling me about his time in Vietnam came after a long meal at a Lebanese restaurant in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. During dinner we’d been talking about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the former of which was raging less than 600 miles from us, and he took the long way back to his house so we could finish the conversation. We pulled into his driveway and, still not satisfied, my father turned off the car and we just sat there, in the dark and the midnight heat.
"One of the worst parts about my life," he said after a few moments, "is that you will never know the man I was before I went to that war. You’ll only ever know the guy that came back, and that breaks my heart more than anything else."
It seemed like more of an apology than a statement, and I stayed up all night thinking about it, in the darkness and the heat, thousands of other people’s fathers killing and dying a few hundred miles away.
