Re: Watching Trek...Higher Than A Kite!

I didn't smoke a joint until I was 26, now those numbers are reversed, so I have to catch up on it for all those times I missed. I first had the opportunity when I was 19 or 20, but I was so paranoid I was convinced the cops would be breaking down the door as soon as I lit up.

Edit: And that first joint was in a Christmas card, after someone I worked with found out the wife and I had never gotten high. We tried it in bed. It worked very well.

A positive drug story who would have thought!

I tried to watch TNG baked but I got very aware that I was watching somethign from the late 80s and early 90s and it seemed like my willing suspension of disbelief went out the window!

For me the only series I can really watch is TOS in that state. Even when it's scary there is still a positive 60s look and feel to it which is so very cheerful you know? It permiates every fiber and is such a product of it's time!

Mirror, Mirror is a blast under the influence.

No really! Even before the remastered, John Winston gets a chance to really sell that agonizer scene in the teaser.

Re: Watching Trek...Higher Than A Kite!

I would think that "The Alternative Factor" would be a trip. Either that or "Return of the Archons."

I'm not sure there is a drug that will improve The Alternative Factor..

Re: Watching Trek...Higher Than A Kite!

Return of the Archons used to work for me that way, but really only with the somnambulist townspeople with Vina's Theme playing. I don't have a copy currently to test it.

Alternative Factor is in the same Fan Collective as Mirror Mirror I believe. I've never noticed it working with that.

Re: Watching Trek...Higher Than A Kite!

Ok guys, I have to ask - how is "The Way to Eden" when you're, uh, under the influence? It can't possibly be any worse than when you're sober, right?

Re: Watching Trek...Higher Than A Kite!

The Way to Eden first aired when I was 18 and sober (preacher's kid). I hated it because of the beat-you-over-the-head morality tale with space hippies. The religious aspect with Eden, Adam, and the apple didn't bother me at all. It was those stupid space hippies and the ""rock songs".

Every freaking show was doing episodes like it at the time. I liked rock and roll, I had my first AM radio at 11 (1962 to save you the arithmetic) and I kept it on the top 40 station. I heard Dion, Bobby Rydell, Bobby Vee, Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Dave Clark Five, all that stuff. But whatever the space hippies were playing wasn't rock music.

Under the influence? When I had all the tapes, that was one I rarely played, so I can't say. I tried to watch Skip, but it's just too painful.

I was basically stoned from 1986 to 2012, so yeah....








What were we talking about again?
