second and last trip to] the
Weekend Club. Gillian, Mike and I went.
Friday night seems to have passed uneventfully.
Gillian went back to see Alex on Saturday morning (I forget
how she got back). That night we had no drugs to speak of.
That was until a guy there from the army, with a broken wrist,
started to give out mescaline from a plastic bag (this guy
was a friend of Art, who was also there this night. Art (from
1980-81) and I were talking in 1981 and discovered this).
Mike got some first, then asked the guy for some for me. People
were doing it in milk, or snorting it (as we did). Captain
Strange was there (his name was Pat, with long blond hair,
a beard and sunglasses. He would walk around the lounge and
stand beside people until they gave him a toke. A bit sad).
He did more mesc then I'd ever seen anyone do (before or since).
Behaviour got strange. We checked out this backroom and it
was warped. In fact the whole house bent this way and that.
The livingroom had a large sag in the middle ceiling (this
had nothing to do with the drugs). Mike really got stoned.
He would stand,and stand and stand. "Sit down Mike".
Some of us went for a voyage across the road. There was a
house, then it went down a small way to a stream. It was bridged
by a large log, or something like that. I decided not to cross
into the woods. Sitting down in the snow I watched a bizarre
Lights came on, dogs barked. From the house, on a balcony,
came the voice of a woman "Go back, go back, cross at
your own peril!" I did go back, the others did too, eventually.
We sat in the backroom where we sat most of the time and relaxed.
A guy played guitar, we told stories. We discovered strange
Mike and I had bunk beds upstairs. We tried to crash, listening
to Beverly on CHOM and buzzing in our heads. Then Captain
Strange came in and sat there for about half an hour making
strange noises. Finally he left (and for some reason Van Morrison
reminds me of this room, I think we listened to CHOM at this
got free tickets to]
Babe Ruth at the Garden of Stars at Man and his World. We
had to get to Atwater. [Rob and I
got to Lachine hitchhiking but got no further and time was
running out. so] we walked from 24th ave in Lachine
[though Lachine, up to Upper Lachine road, along Sherbrooke]
to Atwater, then the metro to Expo. [At
least Ralph was there. The show was bad. It was being filmed
for TV (and never shown...or was it?). During the introduction,
a guy in the audience kept yelling "Fuck you!"]
