Review 1609

It started with:

“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
Revelation 6:12-17″
…I knew it was going to be a trip. And oh what a trip Sixth Seal is.

What a crazy read Sixth Seal is. The writers complete candor makes for a engrossing yet disturbing read. The blog consists of entries from hbpoh and veritas (a.k.a. Mr. Foaf) and the content from both is VERY different. All of veritas’ entries reveal his strong drug experimentation, of which he gives great detail. He talks about various drugs in his ‘trip reports’. They are very disconcerting but it does make for great reading. It was like reading ‘trainspotting’. Unbelievable stuff!

Hbpoh is a more typical blogger. With entries about: restaurants, wrestling, trips, vacations, depression, Monash University Clayton Campus, Melbourne, school , SexPo, bills, urinal photos, tennis anyone?, Explosive Diarrhea, Magnum Ice Cream bars and of course his girlfriend. I really enjoyed his writing. He documents his events well with photos, some are rewarding, some disgusting, some artsy…photos say so much. A
Funny entry was entitled “Proof that candy bananas are evil”. Want to know why? Read the blog. 😛

My favourite quote:

“Unix is the only thing I know of that can reduce a grown man to tears. Manly tears, that is…”

The author also experiments with substances:

“I was in the mood for some weed so I decided to sample some Australian hydroponically grown cannabis sativa to determine the THC concentrations present in a typical gram bag. All for the furtherment of science of course. I’m selfless that way. *preens*”

Veritas on Heroin:

“its the feeling of picnics and reading books and eating cheese cake and nice weather and mom taking care of you when you’re sick and i’ve got it! its the feeling of being a kid, where there are no real problems, only little ones, and you don’t need to do anything, you just hang around and feel comfortable and they’re parents there to take care of you. damn, thats what it feels like. return to childhood. its the feeling of waking up on a saturday morning to the smell of french toast and you just lie around in bed waiting for your mom to call you down to eat breakfast and you’ve had a great nites sleep and the only thing you want to do is read a good book, a safe book where there are no great problems and everything turns out to be okay in the end. jesus, you just don’t get this feeling anymore after you grow up. no wonder people get addicted to this shit. it’s really comfortable”

This blog is an experience. Never before have I felt such a deep impact from reading a blog. If a blog is meant to share an experience then Sixth Seal delivers.
