One of my favorite things to do in the period of recuperation from a psychedelic experience is to watch a good nature film. While much of the stuff we usually watch is hardly bearable in the sensitive state of mind following these types of voyages, nature films are almost always harmoniously attuned with psychedelic afterglow. This short video clip from the 2009 BBC show Life shows one-year’s growth of the nature in a forest, in less than a minute’s time. It’s extraordinary not only as a technical feat but also as a paean to nature. The full show (51 minutes) is also highly recommended, especially for the types of situations described above.
The 90s were haunted by the sample from Max Romeo’s Chase the Devil thanks to The Prodigy’s Out of Space single. One of the classics.
If you went tripping back in the 1940s, the finale for three caballeros would probably have been the most psychedelic video around…
