Hippies, freaks & psychedelic misfits.

Post by reisha » Mon May 20, 2019 10:10 am

Yano who ya are, & if ya dropped in, watch out!
This is a place to fly free w yer freakflags, & while we do our best to cause no harm, the convos can get ruff at times.
Where we use humor, sumtimes raw wisdom, to spout our phoolosophies, political rants, wry observations. Alltho our topics may be heavy, we try to keep our silliness, humor & love in the forfront.

I do this, to honor a significant parta my life experience. To honor many mentors, teachers, healers whove walked w me.

I love hippiefests! Let me count the ways,
I hate hippiefests, let me count the ways....

There are plenty-a soapboxes, to yer climb up to yer high horse, so if ya need a place, to yell, scream, rant, rave, have at it!!!! Be careful, tho, we wont tolerate unkindness. & will do our best to heal it w love.

Funny how Uncle Johns Band WAS one of the theme songs during divorce #1 back in the 80’s.(she was cheating)

What I was actually thinking was a Jerry Jeff Walker song,
“Well it’s goodbye goodbye easy street,
When you say goodbye, it’s goodbye .”

Both of those songs convey a similar feeling to me.

Ok, well... that works too, lol!

So, im thinkin bout all the siights, sounds, smells, & just random wtf!? Experiences of hippiefests. I remeber the 1st time i saw folx haulin portable hot tubs to their campsites. Blew my mind! These folx, upon fillin the tub, proceeded to busy themselves w sum odd activity of futzin w lil toys b4 tosin em in the tub. Then pulled kiddie fishin poles & chairs, a huge cry of dispare comes from their camper - wait! We forgot the sign! This ancient person hobbles out & tapes the sign to the tub.
It reads 'miracle fish - free!'
So, i wander over & ask what this is.
The old guy gets up, hands me a fishin pole, & says 'go fish' as he offers me his chair
He starts this rap bout jesus, & loaves & fishes.
Meanwhile, im tryin to hook this bizzarrly painted barbie doll thats floatin amongst toy cars, plastic stars, blinky balls, & all kinda of 'gumball machine' prizes. I realize there are magnets attached to both my fishin pole, & all the toys. Im now determined to Get That Barbie
This group joins in the old guys rap, talkin bout Doing Love
I finally hook my barbie, & wunna the group grabs it for inspection, says 'oh, wait just a minnit' then wanders to their camper.
She comes back & hands me a beautiful batik & tye dyed tee w a ' logo' of a ' miracle fish' thats made outta the words ' do love'.
The old guy was babs, from the pranksters.
I spent aloota time 'fishing' at that show.
I was just past my 13th bday when this occurred

But, my hippie self kinda hasta dislike phishheads, they're what f'd up The Scene, lol! Lotrats & drainbows, all about
InstantondemandmeMeME, NOW!!!!! Every Last Wunna Em!😉

Hi reisha,

old line: " you had to be there to get the joke "

Sounds like you were really there! Like I said I was the shorthair GI on leave in the corner. Had short hair for a long time, was overseas, and missed a lot of the culture. But my friends were always freaks. They tolerated me and I loved them.

For me it was rural Michigan in 68 and 69, with counterculture influences from nearby Chicago and Detroit.

Be well!

Well, for me, what i hope to develop w this page is to ..... pass on the wisdom of. The culture.

Pls forgive typing, hands are real shaky & viove rec frustrate me.

Thheres alotta dysfunction iin the cultur. (& i suspect yano theres Cult in cultue) in my travels, i discovered that there are many more unhealthy cults than there are happyhippie conmunes. But w in 'Tthe Dead', love was always The Way.

I was. Fortunate to end up in the biggest, most lovingest, most dysFUNctional 'cult' at the time - worked for 'uncle bobo' for 27 yrs. That was my home, wherever i was. I was exposed -ha! Yes, i learned to both expose myself, & hide in that. Prolonged adolecence, for sure! I was gonna say, , tho, that i was exposed to.... (tears of SUCH DEEP GRATITUDE! are flowin here....) so much!!!! Music that i loved, & music that i hated. Genres of music i had no prior concept of. & each subcult, subtribe win the larger umbrllas.
& each tribe, cult has its ownn 'CODE'. - sets of ethics, slang, symbols.

B4 my health went wonky, i was studying to get my socio-psycho!-linguistics degree.
Id long had arm pain, which resulted in the 'slice yer neck cuz yer arm hurts' diet. (Cervical fusion, which resulted in a swallowin disorder)

EEEERRRRK! Forced change of plans, change of life.
Had i known then what i know now ( were sadder code ever uttered?), i woulda just let the mountin med bills go. But, my code, my ethics had tot me to .... pay for services id ligit incurred
Flashback- forward to here, now.

So, once a freakin weirdo alaways one!.....
