Wish my world were this trippy.

I'm re-posting this from Jacob Marshall's blog. As founder of the multisensory aesthetic experience theory on which his band, Mae, is based, he's done a lot of research into my most favorite of mental conditions: synaesthesia. If you know me you've heard me talk about it, but in case you haven't, a brief synopsis: your world is comprised of the trippiest shit known to man. When you experience something with one sense, it triggers a response from another sense, such as perceiving colors and shapes when listening to music. It's actually very common (1 in 23 people have it), but not to the degree you'll see in this video.

all i can say is that those Japanese are weird. That's not even what synesthesia is like because they're trying to explain what is going on in someone's mind--that's not what is actually happening. the object doesn't turn into something else. probably the closest would be the boy sniffing the records and saying the color names...even thought that's still pretty trippy.

...and of course you know all that. you're more synesthetic than i am. i'm just saying that all they were really trying to do was make a trippy video making it seem like if you were synesthetic your whole world is messed up...which is not true. most people don't even think they're weird.

anyway, i love you. can't wait to see you one last time before i go home. C:
