Mushroom Movie Review

Finally got to see the movie “Know Your Mushrooms!” starring Larry Evans and Gary Lincoff.  Written, Produced &  Directed by: Ron Mann

Larry Evans is the fearless leader of the Western Montana Mycological Association and maintains the Fungal Jungal website. (link on home page). Larry has taught me a lot of what I know about mushrooms, and is my mushroom guru.

Gary Lincoff has written several books, and the one I am most familiar with is the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms
by Gary A. Lincoff, Gary H. Lincoff, Carol Nehring. This was my first mushroom ID book and is a great resource.

The story starts with Larry at the Teluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado. This is a long running get together and there is plenty of characters to entertain and inform.

There is educational portions and comedy thrown in along the way. Complete with question and answer sessions. The scenery and graphics are top notch

I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Mushrooms!

Mushroom Music

A true mycophile like myself listens to mushroom music.

Larry Evans has done it again! Music about mushrooms that is mycologically correct and fun to listen to.

Fungal BoogieI have purchased Fungal Boogie and found it interesting and I learn something new each time I listen to it

The cd covers songs about Boletes, Morels and others. There is a song about the Fly Agaric that is funny and thought provoking.The songs describe different identification tips, and the Latin names are taxonomically correct.


The newest cd out is the Fungal Boogieman.

Fungal Boogieman


I have not purchased this one yet, but will be soon. In listening to the sample tracks, it sounds like another fun one to have and listen to. The setup and context seems similar to the last one.

The link on the homepage will get you to the Fungal Jungal, with some samples of the cds as well as the lyrics to the songs. 10% of the purchase price goes to the WMMA, a worthy cause indeed!The WMMA and Larry maintain the Fungal Jungal website that is loaded with mushroom information and links.


So get yourself some mushroom music and learn more about mycology while you are at it!
