Lynn Samuels dies and I am forced to eat a Psychedelic Mushroom
The year was 2011 and it was Christmas Time
In the movie Performance the character eats a Psychedelic Mushroom which is not psilocybin mushroom, but a Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria var. muscaria).
I had no way to get psilocybin mushrooms, but I found some Fly Agaric Mushrooms. I did not know what to do with them. I dried them out and I was afraid to take them. I was in Palm Springs when Lynn Samuels. I had a rental car and it had Sirius Radio. So on Christmas Eve I listed to Lynn. They had moved her to 7am local time, but from 10am to 1pm New York Time on Saturday and Sunday. I listened to the Christmas Eve show in which she did her usually Christmas Songs as far as I recall. She was Jewish, but she loved to have Christmas Carols and she would sing along and sometimes get callers to sing with her. With eager anticipation, I awaited her live Christmas Day Show. I was in the car driving to Joshua Tree National Park. The drive was long and boring, so I was horrified to find that instead of her live Christmas Day Show they played a rerun of her Christmas Eve Show. I had no idea she was dead. They came to her house, because she was supposed to call in her show, but she was dead so they said nothing. The next weekend, I waited for her show again, and instead they had Alex Bennett doing a Tribute show because she was dead. I was back home and in a suicidal gesture I eat the Fly Agaric Mushroom. It was all dried up and losing quality. It tasted like chicken. It did not have a bad taste, but at once I got a terrible head ache. I had to lie down. I fell into a deep dreamless sleep. When I woke up I was ok, but I did not have any kind of Psychedelic Experience and Lynn was still dead. She died from smoking, and not exercising of a major heart attack in her sleep. She was 69.
Later I had several dreams about her. I dreamed, she was no dead, but merely faked her death. She moved to San Francisco and started to do her show right in the same downtown Studio that Alex Bennett used to do his show from. I had been to see Alex’s show once in the 80s.
I arrived late at Lynn’s show which she did live daily before a studio audience.
She was doing her show, but it was only the last hour of a four hour show. Lynn told me, I was too late and show (like her life) was almost over and would not give me any help for it. She gave me a record (an LP) of her show to thank me for stopping by and thanked me for my interest in her show. She had so many fans, she did not need me at all. As for the record upon taking it home I thought would be her show, but it was something else. It was the replacement show they hired to replace her because she was dead. I was back in my old childhood room, but it was bigger. I had stereo, and it was a good one, but other types of computers had not been invented. I put on the record and heard the show. It was a group of mixed men and women talking quietly and politely to each other without any debate. They all had soft FM sort of voices. If you remember what an FM DJ sounded like, they speak so as not to jar you from the groove of the music. They did not play any music other then All You Need Is Love by the Beatles. They played this towards the end of the show, and I had two records of their shows. I put on the second one, and also heard the All you need is Love song again. I wrote down the dream as soon as I woke up, which is why I remember it is great detail.
