SUCCESS!!! – 2014 Annual Pledge Drive

Thanks to more than 200 fellow saloners, we have exceeded our 2014 goal. Press On!

Posted in Salon Funding.


  1. Lorenzo, thanks for what you do. I am new to the community. I am interested in the thumb drive of the Mckenna compilation out takes. How can I get one?

    thanks again,
    Ludwig W.

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: I’m still trying to find the mailing addresses for the last few to be shipped. After the last one is shipped I’ll be posting the McKenna sound bites on this site for downloading. However, I don’t plan on making any more thumb drives after that . . . at least for a while. It was a LOT more time consuming that I’d planned on.]

  2. Great job on the pledge drive. I’m so glad that this community is willing to support this project, because the work is amazing.

    Also, you should drop me a note, because I didn’t give you my address for the thumb drive when I sent my donation (I also sent you an email about it).


    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: Over the next month, each of the donors will get a personal email or letter from me confirming shipping and how they want their name shown (or if they do) on our 2014 sponsors’ page.]

  3. Lorenzo, I JUST heard of this fundraiser, apparently not in time to donate. Congrats on meeting your goal, I’ll give early next March!

  4. This was a very busy month for me I have wanted to donate for awhile. Good to see it is already solid for this current year. I hope that you will keep the donate button up till you reach your goal of 400 podcast. I really want one of those thumb drives. Thanks everyone. Awesome community.

  5. Congratulations on meeting your community powered funding goal. You are fulfilling a grandfather role in this beautiful tribe and deserve to be supported well into the extended Now! Thank you so much my elder for this river of words that connects us to the dreamworlds.

  6. Donated! With the disappearance of a jet with 229 people a worldwide mystery and the worsening planet-wide Fukushima nuke disaster, can we officially announce the start of the Eschaton party??

  7. Hello Lorenzo, wishing you all the best and am happy to help with the fundraising drive. I will mention it in the Salons Facebook Group as well. Wishing you all the best my friend! ~E

  8. Probably donations should be kept in cryptocurrency. Just in case if it’s going to raise in value like tenfolds again.

    I wish the psy salon can utilize torrent tracker for podcasts distribution. This would dramatically reduce the expenses associated with the network traffic.

    But most importantly this way plenty of useful datamining can be done. What episodes are the most downloaded or seeded, etc.

    I’m sure there are many great treasures hidden but sometimes it isn’t easy to find them. Maybe some reintroduction once in a while?

  9. I donate now for first time too. I wonder just how much cost is it per month? how much data are you moving here. l-o-l.

    How bout look for a sponsor to host the files on? Or go for a blogtalkradio type-site. I dont know.

    Regards from Norway. Take care all. 🙂

  10. I love the Salon! Each episode feels like a journey to an astral-plane virtual-reality chat-room. I deeply value your insights and observations, as well as the stimulating material that you gather and broadcast. Keep the fires burning; the Tribe gathers!

  11. Hello Lorenzo,
    this is my first time donating. Thank you so much for what you do. You have opened the world to me and I feel grateful that you’ve made available your work for all of us to congregate around like a fire in the cold darkness. Been listening for years and hope there are still more years to go. Never stop my friend.

  12. Isn’t this a re-run of an older salon? There are so many obscure McKenna talks on soundphotosynthesis. I wish someone would share them here.

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: I would if I could, but they are all copyrighted, and I haven’t been given permission to play them.]

  13. Hey lorenzo, is it possible to get the thumdrive shipped to germany, or is it us-only? How much would that be? I’ll donate anyway. Best wishes, jan

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: Sure, I intend to ship the thumb drives to whatever address a donor provides. At the end of March I will send an email to all of the donors who will be receiving thumb drives and ask where they want them sent. But I am happy to mail them outside of the U.S. also.]
