the green goddess

An original holograph draft by Aleister Crowley of the poem "La Legende de l'Absinthe" (here called "L'Absinthe") published in The International (New York, October 1917). Crowley pays homage to the "Green Goddess."

Famous Absinthe Robette poster by T. Privat-Livemont, 1896.

impromptu beatnik dance

A bachelor from 1968's Help Wanted Female, having just swallowed a sugar cube of LSD, performs an impromptu beatnik dance for a stripper he hires for three hours at a time, paying her $200. He will later confess to her a series of sexually motivated murders, culminating in a climactic martial arts battle. But for now, enjoy his classic bachelor ensemble: long-stemmed pipe, undersized kimono, and too-tight pants.
