Out in the Street They Call It Merther

wnu

merther
West Indian. Denotes the sensations produced by smoking marijuana while listening to dub reggae. The merging and distortion of sense impressions that occurs during cannabinoid trance.

I was going to write something about how my thoughts and your thoughts and the thoughts of every other human are essentially and depressingly the same.  Instead I want to share something that might be mildly unique about my brain.  Reggae music makes me want to become a hobo.  I don’t listen to it much and I certainly don’t fall into any of the common listener demographics for that genre, but if I hear the right piece of dub music played over a sufficiently powerful sound system, I have a strong urge to burn my meager belongings, break off all ties to society, and live in a drainage ditch.  No mind-altering substances required.
