Best Trip in the Worst Place

The beauty of a candy shop self made shroom chocolate trip going extraterrestial

I started writing about the “Extraterrestial Candy Shop – Mushroom Chocolate Trip”, that I took with my Friendz down at the Lowest Place on Earth, in front of the Dead Sea – Trip in a Parking Lot – in a lame excuse for a Tourist Attractions unfit for Trippin.
I know it’s not related to the extraterrestial art of burning man in any way. BUT – Not every thing in this blog is about ART and Burning Man.
Personally, I consider each “Trip” I take, as a private little burningman by itself – a journey to your own craze – a road trip to either “Hell and Back” or to “Heaven and Beyond”.

The Trip I’m about to start describing (or at least try), could easily be described as “The Best Trip ever, in the Worst Place possible”. Tripping on Magic Mushrooms in the middle of a packed full Israeli nature reserve parking lot – an hour and a half before it is being closed and evacuated, is not something I’d recommend or try again. It was stupid and we paid the prise.

It all started when we took the “Dose” after entering the reserve, and before starting the walk though (that is a popular day trip) in David’s River Creak near Ein-Gedi… Actually it all started a week and a half before, as “Ranger WoW” landed from San Francisco to attend my wedding…

Burningman Documentary Trailer

Freaky Philosophical Theory in a Burningman Video Art Documentary

Check out this cool trailer of Udi Oel’s “Burningman Documentary Movie” – – –
It’s a promo to an indy documentary film, about 3 Israelis going to get burned in burning man festival (directed by: Udi Oel / edited by: Itay Goldstein).
This Burning Man movie shows the ART in General, Aesthetics and Philosophy of Burningman – – –

Udi is an Israeli film artist, who wonders “what the hell is this crazy thing?” – He went on a journey to find out the answer – a Road Trip from Los Angeles California to the Black Rock Desert of Nevada U.S.A, accompanied by a friend – and then they filmed around Burningman for a week – interviewing fabulous people and shooting some unusual ART Pieces – some of which are magnificent works of Environmental Eco Art and Fire Art. The fact that he got to interview Larry Harvey is a privilege (a real treat), but I also loved watching the rest of them Crazy Burners (their ART and Nudity – it’s a Fun Event) and all the Psychedelic Performances.

I met Udi some years ego, as I was trying to bring to life my own 30 h’ of burningman videos – I obviously needed the help, in turning the footage into a film (never happened) – Eventually, we both struggled with almost the same issues – Unlike me he kept on struggling -and- I hope we could all see his finished documentary soon.

Join the Freak Network Tourist Attractions Trip – and enjoy…

Hi Y’all -and- Welcome…

The Plucked Rat welcomes y’all to his Trippin Burning Man Blog

Hi Y’all – I’m a Trippin’ Burner – I’m a Sucker for them both (and though I’m a QA engineer, deep inside, I’m still the Artist I always dreamed of becoming). So, this is my first post (Lovely, Bovely Jovely)… In my “TripN’Burn” blog, I want to write about Road Tripping in the West Coast (in general), and about Trippin’ from San Francisco, California – all the way to Black Rock desert, Nevada – Home of the Burningman (in particular) — but, not only this — I will also be giving my best shot at Video, Contemporary Art, Performance and New Media Critique.

To begin – I would have to give the credit to Burning Man, one of the places this passion of mine started at -and- definitely the best place I ever went trippin’ on.
At burningman 2000 I took over 30 hours of video footage and I’ve been dieing to share some of them with the world – So welcome to my blog and… whatever…
