An Okla-Awesome Adventure

It all started with the sound of a thunderstorm. My friend Tessa told me that Oklahoma has the best thunderstorms, and that they are really neat to see this time of year. So she wanted to know if I wanted to go on a road trip to see them with her. I was very interested.

I then thought that it might be a great location to do a music video for my flat-mate Brett. Brett was also very interested. So I picked one of his songs, wrote a secret idea for a video, and away we went. What fun right?

We took off Monday morning and drove two days straight…well, my license is expired, so I slept for two days straight….muahh haha ha ca doo da doo..I pee in your shoe. Well I did drive for an hour but almost got in a major accident so I was relieved from that duty for the rest of the trip.

1WOMAN IN CAR
This lady was our road trip competition but during a rest stop I stuck some exlax into her coffee and we took the lead. JK!…I don’t have a comment for this foto.

2BRETT SMOKING2
Weed was smoked often on the journey amongst other things.

3ICE CREAM SHOP
This ice cream place reminded me of an episode of Pete and Pete. Ice cream makes me regurgitate…yucky.

4DIANI IN CAR
This is the fourth installment of our trusty brigade…Diana…she’s french and wanted to see America too.

5underarch2
After a long haul of grave yard shiftyness lead by B-Nels, we arrived in St. Louis, Missouri. I had no idea there was a epic arch there.

6UNDER ARCH
Jump for joy my boy.

7GRASS HOPPER
I found a grass hopper that two construction workers were gonna smash. They didn’t though.

8GRASS HOPPER 2
We got close and personal.

9GRASS HOPPERE
I learned a lot from our conversation.

10BUGS
I found other bugs…dead bugs…don’t cry, these are the ugly unlucky kind.

11DOD AND BRANDEN
Tessa, Branden and Frank the doggy.

15CAR AHEAD
Sooo Free. We searched for a corn field that we needed for the music video.

16brettbridge
We found some cool locations but still no corn field. They are hard to come by in Oklahoma I guess.

17levitiating
Brett used his magic powers and levitated high enough till he could see a corn field.

18SMASHING GUITAR
Wala!…We found one. We brought this fake guitar to smash for the video. I’m not spoiling anymore.

21laying in hay
After the filming Brett took a break. We filmed 2 days straight with no sleep so we could get the nice lighting in the nice location during a nice storm. It was my first time taking aderol…it really got me focused and kept me awake. Don’t worry, I won’t become an addict…but I bet it’s sooo easy to become one.

22on haystack2
Brett played a few more songs into the sun set before heading back to base camp.

24HOMELAND
Before heading home we stopped in at Homeland grocery store and loaded up the car so we didn’t have to make so many stops for food on the way back. We all over-shopped, but we got the car back to the rental place in the nick of time. Thanks to all those that helped us on this trip.

PS: The music video is at the lab but will be premiered here in two weeks…Be on the look out.

Heres a video that will tide you over till then:

Shrooming in Tuxedo

1_theshrrom_SMALL

A friend of ours came upon 300 dollars worth of shrooms. Neither Brett or I had ever done shrooms before, so Brett planed a trip to a place where we could get some psychedelic psychotherapy. Everyone knows that nature is the best place to do shrooms, so Brett looked up a few natural spots near by and came across a town called Tuxedo. Next thing we knew, we were on a train to Tuxedo to find nature, with 300 dollars worth of illegal nature.

2_gettingthere_small
We left early and took a train north bound.

3_trainreflection_small
The front of the train was eerie.

4_smokingthesmoke_small

We arrived in Tuxedo eager to find the lake. Some said it would take 2 miles to get there, some said less. They were all wrong.

5_smokwinwoods_small
We searched through the woods for hours. I think our first reason for being lost was that we decided not to follow the trail early on. When we found this valley, the groups Iphone helped us figure out how far we had till the lake. It had been 2 hours of hiking and we were less than half way.

7_onhighway_SMALL
We finally found this highway, and followed it for a while. We were on a high way to a high day.

8_beingfree_small
Brett packs in earth tone making him appear ever so free.

9_trinabywater_SMALL
WE FOUND THE LAKE! FUCK YEAH!

shroom_sandwhich_small2
We all turned our favorite child hood snack into a sandwich full of Psilocybin. Peanut butter, jelly and magic. (Psilocybin: a hallucinogenic organic compound of the tryptamine family, found in magic mushrooms.)

12_litestick_SMALL
While Brett and I were tripping I burned these sticks and it was the most amazing thing ever. I recommend doing shrooms and burning things. It’s awesome.

13_nextmorning_small
We woke up the next morning to pouring rain. Some had a tent, some didn’t. I guess it takes more than being the trip planner to get a roof over your head.

14_therlake_small
While shrooming the night before Brett broke a trees arm somewhere in the woods and brought it back to the camp site. Then someone dared him to throw it in the water.

The trip back felt pretty cracked out. It’s always nice to come back to society, even if it has so many strange rules.
