Shroom the book, Shrooms the movie

Still on the entheogenic theme ...

Andy Letcher, author of Shroom: A Cultural History of the Magic Mushroom, lent his expertise to a horror film in this YouTube video:

I liked his book, so I suppose that publicity for it is a Good Thing.

Actually, Shrooms -- now on DVD appears to fall in the category of exploitation film, in the fine tradition of Reefer Madness.

Jeez, Peg, I learned to spell psilocybin in high school.

Do I date myself?

Make a movie about the eeee-vul Salvia divinorum, and I will get back to you.

oops! I misspelled ayahuasca, too, even with it right in front of me...the shame! I do actually know how to spell them believe it or not.

BTW I met Andy Letcher a few years ago in England, and he is an extremely wonderful human being.
