Nedelle my girl, you got some weird HTML code showing up on the bottom of some of your posts. Don't know if you've noticed or if it's been brought to your attention. Stay fab. By the way, I think I'm gonna ask you for a bit of advice. Should I ask it here or Facebook (Do I add you?) or e-mail or whaaaat?
Hey! Good lookin’ out. I swear, finding the perfect tumblr “theme” will be the death of me. I need me a good graphic designer. Totally add me on FB, just cuz! But to ask me a question you can ask anonymously at advicefromparadise.com or email a longer question to email@example.com. Looking fwd to it! Xo

hey I was just listening to the soundcloud versions of Double Horizon/Psychic Returns and noticed they sound different from my version. Was the DL code from the 7" different versions to the soundcloud ones?
I think they’re the same mixes! Are we on the same page now? One little fact though, is that the mixes on the 7” itself are different from the album versions.
Q: Hey Ned,
A girl I have been spending a lot of time with lately told me that she wants to take mushrooms with me. She knows I have experimented with psychedelics and having never tripped on anything (she has just smoked weed) she thinks it is only fair that I let her experience psychedelics with me while I look after her during the trip. Normally I would be okay with this, but I feel like this girl isn’t in the right place in life at the moment to endure the potential pitfalls of a bad trip, which she would most certainly have due to many things I won’t go into. I don’t know how to tell her that without sounding terrible. I still want her in my life, but I don’t want to risk her mental health spiraling out of control on my watch. What is my best course of action here?
A: Hi! Here are some options for you (I’m a Libra and have a hard time committing to just one piece of advice :P)
You can give her just a tiny bit of mushrooms, since most people can handle a little, and then you can see how she reacts and determine whether she could handle more at a later time. Or you can add a sprinkling of molly to the mix! Keep her on the happy side, even if it’s chemically-induced.
Or you can tell her that you’re not ready to do that with her yet. It’s too soon. She’s kind of asking a lot of you, and by the looks of your email it doesn’t even seem like you’re “official.” Last option is to be completely truthful, and tell her that when people are going through a lot in life it’s a recipe for disaster, and you’re just looking out for her best interest. Because you care. Awwwww
Silver Apples- I Have Known Love
Q: Hello AFP,
I just got out of a five year relationship. I feel like a used rug. Neither of us had been happy for a long time so it makes sense that we split up. Everyone tells me to go out and date so I do. Conversations are fun but at the end of the night I’m totally oblivious that so and so was interested in me or that the girl who just introduced herself to me wanted me to continue talking with her. New city full of strange loneliness. What should I do about Valentines Day?
A: I wouldn’t force the dating thing. I believe in the power of a good rebound, don’t get me wrong, but if you’re not feeling it, it can be a depressing experiment, and a waste of time. The thing about your question that confuses me though, is that you’re saying that maybe chicks dig you and you can’t pick up on it. Try operating under the assumption that they ALL like you! Maybe that’ll lead to something good. Or just stop thinking about girls for a second and focus on something else- be productive and proactive in other realms of your life.
Ultimately it is a positive thing that you had this break up, so buck up! Shampoo that rug! I try to avoid quotes, but maybe this is the cheesy, inspiring thing you need to hear right now. “After all, it’s in the deepest dungeons that the most beautiful dreams of freedom are dreamt.” - Friedrich Schiller. Keep dreaming!
(As for Valentine’s Day, frack that Hallmark holiday. Just think of it like it’s any other day.)
“I Love Thousands Every Summer” by Nedelle Torrisi. I’m sorry, but this song is very apropos!
