Pretty affected by this Alice In Chains book which I finally finished...especially its detailed descriptions of Layne Staley's slow and painful demise into less than nothing before dying alone, surrounded by syringes. Sigh. So much pain has been caused by humans' immature inability to handle substances, and furthermore -- our creation of molecular monsters like heroin, which nature could've never cooked up all by herself. Nature has limits and rules--- humans often don't. We've tinkered with things until molecular monsters have filled the world. I hope the 90s was the last of that this earth will ever see, I hope we're only heading for higher consciousness from now on. <3
P.S Hauntingly, here is the last song Layne Staley ever recorded. Glimpses of his old self can still be heard in the guttural delivery of these vocals. Despite his tooth loss.
