Is TV a good thing?
    #797699 - 08/05/02 12:47 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

After a hiatus of almost 20 years, got to play with the shrooms again last week. Left the TV on, and while it didn't freak me out or anything, I wonder now if it distracted from the trip. A fair number of my thoughts centered around what was on the tube and not what was in my head. Wondering if the rest of you had any insight with this?

the one time i spent watching tv during a trip, i felt afterwards that it was a Complete waste of a good time. i didn't think about anything spectacular, as tv exists so you do not have to use your brain.

My advice : don't waste a shroom trip on TV,there are alot of other things to do that you cant do unless your tripping that would make your trip better. I have heard though that LSD and movies are a great mix,my friend said he watched episode one on LSD and it was the best movie he'd ever seen...only on LSD though,he hates the movie otherwise. If just have to have a TV on,try playing nintendo 64 party games like mario kart,now thats a fuckin awsome thing to play on shrooms.

If things start getting way to intense I like to flip on the tube....

Of course at this point EVERYTHING on the TV starts looking REALLY freakin weird...I like to watch things that take very little concentration and are kinda strange anyway...MAD TV is excellent for tripping...funny as hell and so damn out there.Plus you don't really have to follow whats going on..

.I get pretty frustrated when trying to watch a movie while tripping...It will be like 30 mins later all of a sudden and I'll pop back outta my headspace and have no idea whats's going on. I tried to watch "Memento" for the first time while on my last trip....takl about confusing

... 'nough said. although that is based on my sober opinion, i have actually never watched television whilst tripping. i have been in a movie theatre and once watched a dvd (or part of one anyway). movies can be cool on lower doses, but once you get up there an' trippin', it's more fun to just get lost in the world.

I usually put an animated movie on when I am tripping. The familiar voices but unfamiliar forms (as in Toy Story) make for some interesting 'conversations' with Cliff Clavin from Cheers, Forrest Gump and more.

I have introduced this idea to many friends using such movies as Shrek, Antz, Bugs life and Toy Story I and II.

Good luck
