Some songs from The Mighty Boosh

6 Apr

The Mighty Boosh is an hilarious, surreal, mystical and highly psychedelic  BBC comedy show created by Julian Barrat and Noel Fielding. Besides featuring a talking gorilla, the show’s cast of characters also includes a variety of shamans and drug dealers.

Somewhat surprisingly perhaps, The Mighty Boosh, has not only gained a cult status, but also attracted massive following with over one million people watching the first episode of the show’s third season.

Most of the episodes are available to watch on YouTube, and if you are a fan of psychedelic comedy, you’ve got to watch at least a few episodes. You won’t regret it.

Here is one of the classic episodes from the series, The Legend of Old Gregg:

Weird mating calls of the leopard slug – Life in the Undergrowth – BBC – David Attenborough

25 Feb

I swear the way those leopard slug mate, as slimy as it is, is one of the most romantic, boundary dissolving mating forms I have ever seen. I know, David Attenborough is a bit scary but stick around for that part (starts around 1:50)

Broadcast- Papercuts

22 Jan

I used to love this band so much! long stoned afternoons of a Jerusalem summer listening to Broadcast, but that hadn’t happened for a couple of years now. Sadly, I started looking for their videos only this week, when I heard about the untimely death of Trish Keenan, their lead singer.  The hypnotic object spinning in this video is a dream machine, that 7eit posted about here. So beautiful.

 

 

Tripping with friends

18 Sep

“The camera won’t catch it” I told J. when we went on our last mushroom trip, overlooking the city from a near mountain. he said that whatever the camera can catch will be enough. It’s true, some home videos depicting people in trips can make one almost share their state of conciseness. maybe it’s because of the DIY feel, a slice of life that is less flamboyant but can be more convincing than any computer generated psychedelic visualization. So call some friends, film yourselves from the other side, just add a cheap effect and dreamy sound and spread your experience to millions of youtube viewers!
