Here's What Going To E3 On Shrooms Is Like

Kids, don't try this at home — unless you have an undying urge to lose your mind at the world's largest video game convention.

Stoned gamers, whatever you do don’t tell my mother I fasted 12 hours before shooting this Super High Score episode and consumed an entire 1/8th of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms, otherwise known as magic mushrooms. Actually don’t tell any of my parents I went to the world’s largest video game convention under the influence of a heavy psychedelic. It’s just too much to handle. Another thing that’s too much to handle — eating an 1/8th of mushrooms at E3.

Looking back at this episode in all of its post-production glory, it’s extraordinary that I didn’t stop in the middle of the Los Angeles Convention Center and scream “HELP ME, I’M CONFUSED!”

Instead, I internalized all of my psychotic bouts and attempted to use the English language and basic human actions to convey what I experienced — and it’s all neatly tucked inside this episode of the Super High Score you’re about to watch.
