An hilarious documentary about animals getting drunk in the African Savannah.
A few weeks ago I published a post about HR Pufnstuf the classic psychedelic children TV show of the 1960s.
In the late 1990s the HBO show “MR . Show with Bob and David” featured a short parody of the show called “The Altered Sates of Drugachusetts”, and even you don’t know the original show (Pufnstuf) this is one of the funniest psychedelic parodies I’ve ever scence.
HR Pufnstuf is a highly psycheelic children show which ran on American television in 1969, created by Sid and Marty Krofft.
Over the years the show has had a cult following on account of claims for drug references in the show. According to Wikipedia ‘”Pufnstuf” has been interpreted as a reference to smoking hand-rolled (H.R.) marijuana (puffin’ stuff).
There is something very psychedelic indeed in “Living Island”, that curious piece of land (or headspace) where everything is alive, and in which Jimmy lands. With lots of magic mixed in, and some pretty crazy humor the show is quite fun to watch, even 45 years after it’s original broadcast. It certainly hasn’t lost its charm. Only downside to it, is that once I started watching it a few weeks ago I can’t get the title song out of my head. Bewarned!
Here is the first episode of the series in which “Jimmy and his magic flute Freddy are lured to Living Island and trapped there by Witchiepoo’s trickery when she makes the Magic Path disappear.”
Vice magazine produces quite a lot of videos on drug themes. One of their remarkable productions is the “on acid!” series, where different people perform different activities while on acid, like performing in an amateur stand up evening, going to interview contestants in the Westminster dog show, or going to watch the monster trucks show. The results are variable, and not always that interesting, but there is a certain charm to the whole thing…
In the episode above, Josh takes drops acid and goes on stage in an open comedy night. The experience proves frightening, disorienting, yet strangely empowering.
This one is the Westminster dog show on acid…
And here is monster trucks on acid
LoopdeLoop is an animation challenge. Each month, animators from around the world create looping animations based on a given topic and upload them to http://www.loopdeloop.org. On the last Tuesday of the month all of the posted loops are compiled and screened to a live audience at Loop in Melbourne, Australia. During the screening a winner is declared, who enters the hall of fame and has their loop featured throughout the following month.
The last challenge spanned two months, Sep/Oct and the theme was “Hallucinations”. Below are the winners and some of the more interesting entries (some are animated gifs.
