If Mastodon are kings of the sludge-rock world, then their past co-headliners Clutch are the jokers. Since their start in 1991, Clutch have amassed a global reputation as the platonic ideal of stoner rock, with frontman Neil Fallon regarded as one of rock’s most talented auteurs. Like Baroness and Lo-Pan, they’re not afraid to roll up their sleeves and crank out a filthy blues jam (1998’s The Elephant Riders more than gives the Black Keys a run for their money), but the band does so with a cartoonish flippancy that their peers lack, which in turn injects the genre with a much-needed sense of humor. “I have a great luxury that I'm a professional liar—that's what a storyteller is,” Fallon said in the album's press release, going on to add, "It's the one socially acceptable way to completely deceive people, and that's what they want.” Liars tell the best tales, for sure – and when they're packing guitars, all the better.

Last October, I tried making a love potion with a friend of mine, who, quite frankly, perfectly fit the bill that the psychic described. By November, our relationship had changed and wasn't as platonic as I originally thought it was. While it inevitably didn't work out and we just went back to being friends, I could never stop thinking about what the soothsayer had predicted. So, this year I decided to have my tarot cards read once again in hopes that it might change my perspective on dating and relationships.


The clairvoyants on psychicchatphone.com are carefully chosen for their expertise. The website also allows callers to have full control over their spending. You can only pay for a psychic reading if you have a major credit card. In the 1980s, the 1-900 number was popular for many psychic companies because it would bill the psychic reading to the person's phone bill. Today, most psychic companies do not use 1-900 number billing because customers would often complain that they received unexpected charges on their accounts. Today, most companies are using credit card systems to allow the client to only charge what they want to pay for. If the customers only want to spend $5.00, then they will only be charged that amount of money for the call.

The Reading: I sat down with Vanessa on a couch at The Plaza. She pulled out a deck of dog-eared tarot cards and began shuffling. She then prompted me to ask her a series of questions, such as “Who is my soulmate?” and “Should I move to Los Angeles?” and let the cards guide her response. I tried to keep a poker face so as not to give away any information. Vanessa’s demeanor is approachable and pleasant but she assured me that she doesn’t shy away from harsh truths. For instance, she had to tell one client that her husband was cheating on her. Luckily, she said that I’m psychically “protected,” and my reading was overall positive.


Love, Romance, Soulmate and Partner Tarot card reading predicts your future by reading the cards. This is different from prophesies using calculations of date, time and year of birth. Each prediction or card selection may not indicate the same result. The accuracy depends on your intention and concentration at the time of selection. Thus, it is very important to concentrate hard to achieve the most significant outcome.
