Magic Trip’s Kinetic Type
Magic Trip is documentary that used the 16 mm color footage shot by Kesey and the Merry Pranksters
during their 1964 cross-country bus trip in the “Furthur” bus. You
know, THE hippie-dippy bus! And while this documentary is remastered
to perfection and totally worth watching for the whole story… there’s
a particular scene that I am captivated by! Ken Kesey’s voice on tape
while participating in an early LSD study brought to life with new
visuals & kinetic type!
The hand drawn type drags you deeper as Kesey’s voice becomes more and
more weary. They tell his crazy acid stories like you’re there, in
fact, after a while you feel like you’re on drugs too! Fun!
Magic Trip is currently on Netflix instant, but you should watch this scene now!
