The Trippiest Movies Ever Made

Trippy sheeitI’m a sucker for movie scenes that are uncomfortably trippy. The kind where you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that whoever wrote them was either very, very high on drugs or batshit crazy.

I like them because there is so much safe material out there that I start craving something, anything, that pushes the boundaries.

What you’re about to see is three and a half minutes of exactly that. Scenes that could be straight out of a dream / nightmare / drug induced hallucination of brain-melting proportions. So fire up the bong and let’s get to it shall we?

The Ivo Vegter Solution to Our Country’s drug problem

I was fresh out of varsity when I met Ivo Vegter in the infamous courtyard that was at the centre of ITWeb’s old offices in Rivonia and though I was at least 5 or 6 beers in, I remember it well.

Ivo was engaged in a passionate debate with someone (I forget who, but you can bet your ass they were probably losing) about how environmentalists are full of shit and I was listening with rapt attention.

See, Ivo is a fascinating person. He has an intellect that is so staggering that is it a truly epic experience listening to the man argue a point. Plus he has a powerful command of the English language and a vocabulary that is so brobdingnagian he is probably one of the few people who knows what that word even means.
