("Most of what my neighbors call good, I am profoundly convinced is evil, and if I repent anything, it is my good conduct that I repent."
----Henry David Thoreau)
("There comes a time, when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies on the gears, upon the levers, upon the wheels, upon all the apparatus. And you've got to make it stop."
---'Free Speech Movement' leader Mario Savio, University of California, Berkeley, 1964)
("By lack of understanding they remained sane."
---George Orwell, in his novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four", describing members of the Party.)
(As a brilliant Berkeley attorney once said:
"Life is quite often marginal for those who choose to live with a conscience.")
("Banksy's work embodies everything I like about art."
"He has a gift: an ability to make almost anyone very uncomfortable."
---Artist Shepard Fairey, writing about underground artist Banksy, whose identity remains unconfirmed. Fairey was quoted in TIME magazine, 5.10. 2010. TIME named Banksy as one of "The 100 Most Influential People In The World".)
("...most artists worthy of the name are loners and renegades. They operate without licenses---or Ph.D's---striving to be themselves as only they can, as clearly and intensely as possible. This is very hard work..."
---Roberta Smith, art reviewer, New York Times newspaper, November 12, 2010)
("A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament. Its beauty comes from the fact that the author is what he is. It has nothing to do with the fact that other people want what they want. Indeed, the moment that an artist takes notice of what other people want, and tries to supply the demand, he ceases to be an artist."
---Doris Stricher, contemporary French visual artist and art historian.)
I often think of the famous quote by Dr. Hans Asperger: "For success in science or art, a dash of autism is essential." I have never considered myself to be mentally ill, but a doctor recently diagnosed me as suffering from schizophrenia. I think the doctor is mistaken in her diagnosis, but then again, it is said to be a recognized symptom of severe mental illness that the person who is crazy absolutely does not think that they are crazy...
(Sometimes a diagnosis of schizophrenia can be seen as an accusation. If a psychiatrist strongly disagrees with the political [and/or aesthetic] opinions of someone, it is not impossible that the psychiatrist may attempt to marginalize that person. Since people are rarely if ever considered to be qualified to self-diagnose, a person is not taken seriously if they disagree with an assessment made by a psychiatrist....)
("... those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
---Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzche)
("I have become a 'crazy fool', one of 'them', the ones who have been discarded by this world, whose visions are greeted with mockery, dismissal, or fear. And I am much happier for it."
---Daniel Pinchbeck's conclusion, after experimenting with a variety of mind-active substances and studying shamanic culture, in his book "Breaking Open the Head---A Psychedelic Journey Into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism", published by Broadway Books, a division of Random House, Inc. in 2002.)
("Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity."
--- T.S. Eliot)

("Here's to the crazy ones, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes...the ones who see things differently."
("...scientists at the University of Toronto have discovered that creative people possess little to no 'latent inhibition', the unconscious ability to reject unimportant or irrelevant stimuli. As University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson puts it, 'This means that creative individuals remain in contact with the extra information constantly streaming in from the environment. The normal person classifies an object, and then forgets about it, even though that object is much more complex and interesting than he or she thinks.'"
---from an article in ScienceDaily, Oct.1, 2003, about a study published in the September 2003 issue of The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology])
("A newspaper should have no friends."
("Ain`t singin` for Pepsi
Ain`t singin` for Coke...
Ain`t singin` for Miller
Don`t sing for Bud..."
("I wish to be paid, but I will not be bought."---
(On more than one occasion I had the very great honor of being invited to visit backstage with master pianist Vladimir Horowitz and his wife, Wanda Toscanini Horowitz. After hearing his truly awe-inspiring performance, shaking the hand of such a genius was a profound experience!)
(And the hours I spent at the residence of my friend Tom Constanten (TC), composer and former Grateful Dead keyboard player, listening in psychedelic rapture as he made music, were intensely inspiring...)
("The refusal to rest content, the willingness to risk excess on behalf of one's obsessions, is what distinguishes artists from entertainers, and what makes some artists adventurers on behalf of us all."
("A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds..."
---Ralph Waldo Emerson)
("I don't pretend to understand the universe--it's much bigger than I am."

I have made MANY erotic drawings. I have not made any of them available for (public) viewing here because I very strictly adhere to Flickr's "Community Guidelines".
("In early September 2012, The New Yorker found its Facebook page blocked for violating the site’s nudity and sex standards. Its offense: a cartoon of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Eve’s bared nipples failed Facebook’s decency test."

If you are a RESPONSIBLE ADULT whose publicly viewable photostream complies with Flickr's "Community Guidlines" and you wish to view some of my erotic art, please contact me via Flickrmail or email and I will list you as a "Friend" so that you may access the "Restricted" art in the "Private" set titled "eros". (The set includes a dozen nudes by Peter Hans Loschan, made in 1970 to accompany a collection of erotic poetry that I wrote. The collection remains unpublished.)

A NOTE ABOUT "OUTSIDER ART":
"This is art that can neither be expressively tempered, nor politically corrected, nor marketably slotted by that great vetting, veneering machine called the art industry. So it stays volatile, radioactive, problematically hot. Is this why our mainstream institutions are so reluctant to exhibit it? Because they’re afraid of it, afraid of its unpredictablity, afraid of how its intense singularity will react with, clash with, even infect other art? I don’t have an answer, but it is questions like this that keep my passion - crazy, I know - for contemporary art alight."
(from "The Desire to Draw, Sometimes a Compulsion", by Holland Cotter in The New York Times, September 16, 2005 [a review of "Obsessive Drawing", a show at The American Folk Art Museum])
("...what is at stake is a pattern of seeing, who makes what visible and for whom."
("The growing presence in our midst of chemicals that seem to alter consciousness raises questions of the utmost importance for us as individuals and as social beings. Examples of these questions are: What do these drugs tell us about the relationship between mind and body? Are they legitimate tools [in any sense] for changing the mind in a direction of greater awareness? How can society come to terms with the individual urge to alter consciousness? These questions are important because they bear directly on the nature of consciousness, which is, ultimately, the only problem worthy of total intellectual effort."
--- Dr. Andrew Weil)
("...all you can do is draw incomprehensible weirdnesses..."
---Don, describing tripping on "windowpane" LSD. [from the 1997 book RETRO HELL: Life in the '70s and '80s, from Afros to Zotz. By the editors of "'Ben is Dead" magazine.])
(When used properly, LSD can GREATLY increase intelligence and compassion. It is quite unfortunate that there are so many people who have not experienced [or cannot experience] LSD and thus are suffering from both "Pre-LSD Cognitive Disorder" and "Pre-LSD Perception Disorder"...)
("'In a central chapter of "Tristes Tropiques", Claude Levi-Strauss studies the intricate body painting of the Caduveo Indians of Brazil: 'Their faces, and sometimes even their whole bodies, were covered with a network of asymmetrical arabesques, alternating with delicate geometrical patterns.'"
"In 1969, the anthropologist Gerardo Reichel-Dolmatoff wrote a paper on the Tukano Indians of Colombia and their use of...ayahuasca: 'For the anthropologist it is most intriguing that the Indians maintain that everything we would designate as "art" is inspired and based upon the hallucinatory experience.'"
---Daniel Pinchbeck, in his book "Breaking Open the Head---A Psychedelic Journey Into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism", published by Broadway Books, a division of Random House, Inc. in 2002.)
("A well-kept secret of the mainstream art world is the role that psychedelic drugs have played in shaping and altering the course of art since the 1960s."
"For the most part, mainstream discourse about art goes on as if the psychedelic revolution were just a minor, tangential distraction."
---from an article by Ken Johnson that was published in The New York Times on December 19, 2008)
("...a stream of fantastic images of extraordinary plasticity and vividness and accompanied by an intense kaleidoscopic play of colors."
---Albert Hofmann, describing what he saw during his first LSD experience)
("It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
---Henry David Thoreau)

Here is the front cover of my most recent publication:
I DEDICATE THE PICTURES ON MY FLICKR SITE TO THE MEMORIES OF THE MORE THAN THREE DOZEN OF MY FRIENDS WHO DIED BECAUSE THEY USED DRUGS IRRESPONSIBLY. ALMOST ALL OF THEM WERE VERY GOOD PEOPLE. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THEY DID!!!
THIS DOCUMENT IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO ENCOURAGE THE USE OF ANY DRUG, LEGAL OR ILLEGAL. QUITE THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE!
(DIFFERENT DRUGS USED IN DIFFERENT WAYS IN DIFFERENT DOSES DO DIFFERENT THINGS TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT BODIES AND DIFFERENT MINDS AT DIFFERENT TIMES AND DIFFERENT PLACES!)
Favorite books & authors:
Many! My current online "bibliography" consists of 4,482 digital color scans of the covers of some of the books, etc. that I have attempted to study.
Favorite movies & actors:
I am pretty certain that watching movies (or television) is not a good idea! Unfortunately, to make sense of most of what is being presented on a television or movie screen, people have to suspend the obvious disbelief they should have. Apparently it doesn't take long for most people to permanently forget that they are suspending disbelief and as a consequence actually buy into delusional mainstream propaganda....(Television "programs"...television "programming"...yikes!!!) ACTORS AND ACTRESSES ARE, BY DEFINITION, LIARS. PEOPLE WHO ENJOY BEING LIED TO ARE FOOLS. (INCLUDING ME.) When Picasso accurately noted that "art is the lie that shows us the truth", he was referring to genuine art, not to movies or television. The extent to which disbelief must be suspended in order to comprehend and/or enjoy a movie or a television show is much, much, much greater than the extent to which disbelief must be suspended, if at all, in order to understand and/or enjoy a drawing or a painting. In the painting of a tobacco pipe, "La trahison des images" ("The Treachery of Images") by Belgian surrealist René Magritte, the words "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe") are written beneath the image of the pipe. To contemplate and/or enjoy the meanings of the painting does not require the viewer to assume the depiction is really a pipe even for a moment. (I am not, of course, entirely able to avoid viewing television and movies, but mostly I try to limit myself to reading written reviews so that I can be well-educated about American television and movie "culture". Indeed, how could I resist reading a review titled "CONSPIRACIES ABOUND, BUT DEAR OLD DAD JUST WANTS TO MAKE LSD"?? [The review, by Tim Goodman, writing in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper on September 8, 2008, was of the television series "Fringe" ...])
(Read the script? Yes! View the movie? No!)
("We suffer under a mass national hallucination.
Americans, regardless of income or social position, now live in a culture entirely perceived inside a self-referential media hologram of a nation and world that does not exist.
Our national reality is staged and held together by media, chiefly movie and television images.
We live in a 'theater state'.
In our theater state, we know the world through media productions which are edited and shaped to instruct us on how to look and behave and view the outside world."
---Joe Bageant, in a lecture, 2009)
(Here is a list of some of the movies and TV shows I have viewed:
(Please click on the links below to read six very, very brief items about entertainment:
Favorite musicians & artists:
"...that whole rock and roll musician thing does not interest me in the least. I just wonder, why are they popular?"
---John Baldessari, an artist quoted by Glen Helfand in an article in the San Francisco Bay Guardian published in San Francisco, California on 7.22. 2009
("Last year, the editors of ArtReview magazine named the Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei the most powerful artist in the world."
"Ai's resistence to all forms of control--capitalist and communist--manifests itself in one poignant way. He refuses to listen to music. He...prefers the silent spaces of independent thought."
''I have many musician friends, but I never listen to music.'"
---Art critic and Pulitzer prize winner Mark Stevens, Smithsonian, September 2012.)
If I am sitting in a cafe looking at an art book or a volume of poetry, I am not forcing anyone else to see the art or the poetry. If I am sitting in a cafe and music that I do not like is being played over the sound system, while I am there I am being forced against my will to hear something I do not wish to hear (unless the employees turn off the sound system or change what is being played over it when I request that they do so).
(Here is a list of a few of the MANY musicians I have heard perform live:
Cats, art (especially outsider art, graffiti, and tattoos), poetry (especially small press poetry), thunderstorms, mountains, and many, many, many other things!!!!!
(Here is a list of a very few of some of the things that have influenced me:
I intensely dislike politics. I intensely dislike organized religion. I intensely dislike sports. I intensely dislike video games and computer games. I intensely dislike gambling. I intensely dislike beverages that contain alcohol. I intensely dislike methamphetamine.
(Here are some quotes about sports:
A FINAL NOTE:
If you can remember what one of my drawings looks like or if you can remember a line of my poetry, then I have physically altered the structure of your brain!
("We are our memories."
---Eric R. Kandel, quoted in SCIENCE magazine, 12. 4. 2009)
("Columbia University neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel won a Nobel prize in 2000 for proving that memory---which had been regarded previously as fleeting, insubstantial, and not really a subject that could be investigated with a microscope---has a physical basis, and that each new thought and new memory actually alters your neurons at a molecular level.")
("The dream of artists...is to plant themselves in other people's heads."
