Lucy In The Sky: Albert Hofmann Passes at 102

BASEL, Switzerland — Albert Hofmann, the father of the mind-altering drug LSD whose medical discovery grew into a notorious "problem child," died Tuesday April 29th, 2008. He was 102.

A Swiss scientist best known for synthesizing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). He stumbled upon this psychedelic discovery while synthesizing lysergic acid derivatives from fungus ergot, or in layman's terms, dude was fucking with them shroomies. While handling a specimen of the recently obtained LSD-25, he accidentally absorbed some of the liquid onto his fingertips and had what is quite possibly the greatest bike voyage the world has ever heard of. Since then A. Hof and his comrades continued to experiment with the cidy substance as well as many other aboriginal inspirations, including but not limited to psilocybin, morning glory, various roots, and salvia divinorum (more on salvia from Big Rico coming soon). He did mention that psychedelics can be very dangerous in the wrong hands, and before being hijacked by the pathetic hippie movement, was actually quite successful during psychoanalytic studies. Fortunately it leaked out though, for this visionary elixir contributed greatly to my youth as well as provided a plethora of layers and realms for my goonies and I to wander through during the witching hour. So many a moon cluttered with crawling spiders, morphed out statues, and colorfully melting Florida forests later, Pimpin' Pens honors A. Hof as a truly intelligent explorer for the greater of humanity and beyond.

Here's a Tribute For Big Al. Aesop Rock's Aptly Titled Banger: "The Greatest Pacman Victory Ever"


Hofmann authored more than 100 scientific articles and wrote a number of books, including "LSD:My Problem Child".
