Terence McKenna interviewed on NPR (KQED radio) by Michael Krasny in San Francisco, March 1999. This is one of the final interviews of Terence as his brain tumor was detected only a few weeks later. In the interview Terence talks about many subjects but one of interest was his recent experience with Bruce Damer exploring and building "avatar" virtual worlds.

Psychedelia: 1961 Psilocybin Trip Report from the Timothy Leary Library archives. Written on the back of a Jasper Johns poster (Leo Castelli, gallery), dated July 15, 1961, is a trip report talking about "playing the game of life better" (paraphrased). Sections are redacted with gold paint. There is a coffee stain along the margins. Upon asking Ralph Metzner, he feels this was a report from their Harvard group, perhaps by Johns himself?
