Brandon Rogers Learned His True Purpose While on Shrooms – Tales From the Trip

Brandon Rogers Learned His True Purpose While on Shrooms – Tales From the Trip


I’m having these kids from 12
years old to teenagers coming up to me and wanting pictures with me
and I’m tripping balls. Hi, I’m Brandon Rogers
and I’d to talk about the first time
I did mushrooms. I think most people
have not done mushrooms. So I think the protagonist
at the beginning of the story, myself, who hasn’t done them is quite
a relatable character already and if you have done mushrooms,
well he’s relatable still. So let’s proceed. I was 28 and I was
very depressed one day. One of my actor friends gave me
a bag of mushrooms. Old woman. You never expect old people
to have a bag of mushrooms. I have a friend of mine. We’ll call him Logan
because that’s his name. He was a shaman for me
in this experience. Any drug, you name it,
he’s put it in his body, snorted it or put in his ass. So he said, “All right,
well first of all, you got to do it
in a place you feel safe.” I live in Los Angeles
and for most people, including myself,
it’s a shit place. It’s basically a forest
of concrete and assholes. I told him I feel safe
at my parents’ house and conveniently
they were out of town. So we drove six hours
to Livermore where I’m from. I used the house key, let myself
in and next thing you know, we’re mashing mushrooms
and making tea. We decide to go for a walk. Everyone’s front lawns where
the exact shade of Mountain Dew and the sky
was like someone colored it in with a goddamn highlighter.
I felt my soul. I felt like my true me
and I think all of us question whether we’re good
or bad people. Everyone teeters on this. We all know
there’s no such thing. We’re comparing ourselves
to things that don’t exist. Everything that made me me,
everything that I’ve learned since the day of birth
was cracked to the core, like dropping
a goddamn jaw breaker and in the middle of it was the soul I was born
into this planet as, just me, just me,
uninfluenced by anything and I just looked into the sky
and realized humor is what I was here to do
and where I grew up, there’s a river, a creek bed
where homeless people live and so we went
to the grocery store and I’m not fucking
paying for shit, not that I was too high to. I was just too high to care to.
Money is a construct. I shouldn’t have to give
these papers to that stranger so that that person who’s hungry
can have something to eat. We took all this food and we gave it
to these homeless people. We went down there
and we just gave it to them. It’s a victimless crime,
you know, especially when you’re
on mushrooms. After that we went
to a trampoline park and when I was there,
I forget kids in high school go to these places and I forget
that that’s my audience and so I’m having these kids
from 12 years old to teenagers coming up to me
and wanting pictures with me and I’m tripping balls
and I knew that if their parents knew that I was taking pictures
with their kids, tripping on mushrooms that they
wouldn’t be happy about that and that’s sort of where
the high started to come down. I think that mushrooms,
they’re a wonderful thing that should be celebrated
and conserved. You don’t want to just plow
through it like a college girl. You want to marry it.
Weed is the college girl and if you marry
your college girl, great. But my wife is going
to be mushrooms and I only want to celebrate her
or see her once in a blue moon. Tales from the Trip.

    The weirdest thing about this entire experience is hearing Brandon Rogers say the words “my wife”

    I recently tripped on mushrooms with my good friend I’ve known forever, and wow lemme just say I totally understand the thought process Brandon is talking about. I was watching the sky and the clouds dancing with the music I was listening to. I kept thinking about me and my soul purpose and trajectory I was and had been on my whole life, I realized so much of what I do and say is out of emotion. And I just felt all that was and is made sense.

    My first trip was easily one of the coolest experience of my life, 3 grams in a pitch black room listening to music by myself. Epic

    I like this guy. What he says made for good comedy but sounded slightly scripted in places.
    Which it's ok if it was scripted, but it shouldn't sound as such.

    Does the animator know Brandon is gay? That animation at the end with the character I assume is supposed to be him making out with a girl is weird because he’s gay. Unless it’s supposed to be someone else.

    “We’re comparing ourselves to things that don’t exist” hmmm 🤔 this could actually pertain to reality in so many ways

    Also growing up around Livermore, I know all these places he's talking about and love the fact that this happened there at some point in time. Its like the pope blessing the places he visits.

    Well, Brandon saying his audience is 12-18 year olds is definitely true, I'm 12 and I've been obsessed with this man's content for a year now.

    This is the third video that I am watching with comedy central that has Brandon Rodgers. It was brilliant of them to have him on their channel because he's hilarious.

    I love the animation, and love Brandon Rogers. 12 yr olds should def not be watching his content. I think he may have been joking about that…? lol I'm 34 and he is one of my all time fave Youtubers and comedians. He's brilliant. (This is my 3rd time watching this. I can't believe it was July that it came out. I watched it when it came out, and it feels like a month ago at the longest…lol)
