all i know is, my buddy, Zap Rooter, has a video from 2007, and you can just make out THREE HIPPIES on the sandy knoll, just prior to the infamous Paul "I'm just Larry's Patsy" Addis incident.

PRoblem with the Nordic pagan hippies is u cant tell them from the Nordic pagan black metal fans.

only way to note difference is to check their ipod for Wolves at the throne room, amon amarth, etc and so forth

one would think you could tell by the difference in alcohol consumption. this is a common belief, but false

depending on water or air temps, personages in attendance, type of mission, and, willing, (if not unclothed), opponents.

"colours" can vary from
pale vienna sausage, to
pink but disinterested serpent,
to " diamond cutting blue veined and angry purple jack hammer"

Mmm. Cute hippy dude.

The subject heading is a bit misleading. Is it the hippies, who are on the increase, who are calling for some creative thinking? Nothing new there. Seems more likely than rednecks at WalMart calling for creative thinking.

Sorry. Have we discussed whether it is the hair? Or do you have to not bathe, too?

You have to be certain that the universe loves you and will cater to your every whim. The hair and smell are bonus irritants.

Playa hippies and hippies are not necessarily the same thing. One of the first things I recall was the use of the word "hippy". It seemed it was a bad thing with not so bad elements underneath. Like, the longer you're on the playa seems to mitigate the hippy in all of us.

As I've said in this forum before, technically, I was a Yippie!. Youth International Party. Probably couldn't join now...

Well, I do have to give it up to Hoffman for lasting as long as he did. Bipolar is no picnic.
