I got my undergrad degree attended the UC at Santa Cruz, a university I can confidently describe as a “hippie school.” Debate was encouraged,¬†classes could at times be bizarre, and the atmosphere smelled of patchouli and burning sage. Others colleges that fall under the hippie school umbrella? Kenyon College in Ohio, Warren Wilson College in North Carolina, Reed College in Oregon, and Hampshire College in Massachusetts. Want to know if your university also qualifies? Put these 14 signs in your pipe and smoke ‘em… Keep reading »

Grandma & Grandpa Woodstock Get Stuck At Airport, Magic Happens

"If you remember Woodstock you probably weren't there."

Up in Ye Olde Woodstock, New York, there’s an old couple who go by Grandma and Grandpa Woodstock. The pair both attended the original Woodstock (unrelated to the Limp Bizkit violence and rape-fest of 1999), but didn’t meet until the Rainbow Gathering a few years ago. The be-dreadlocked and whiskered couple got married at a Gathering in 2009, and return each year to celebrate and, presumably, barter macrame wall hangings for drugs.

The couple took a bus to the Montana Gathering location, but were told they wouldn’t be allowed on a return bus, because of their dog. So they purchased plane tickets for the return trip to Woodstock. The only problem? Ninety-year-old Grandma Woodstock didn’t have an ID. “She forgot where she put it probably about 10 years ago,” explained Grandpa. The pair eventually got on a flight, but not before they became mini-celebs at the Salt Lake City airport. Peace and love, in the air! [Fox 13]

Home Is Where The Artillery Weapons Are

Hey, hipsters aren’t like me and you. Regular housing is just so confining and restrictive. And that’s why some particularly ambitious members of the hipster class have taken to finding alternative means of shelter. Like tanks. Yes, tanks. Could anything be further from the hipster mentality of ambivalent permissiveness, freedom to wear stupid hats and listen to ear-damaging noise records? And yet these Burning Man hippies have re-appropriated a tank as their own peace and love living quarters. Well, what do you think of that? [Details] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Stoner Style

The baja hoodie has long been a wardrobe staple for stoners, surfers and philosophy majors. I was lucky enough to meet a combination surfer/stoner/philosophy major in a creative writing workshop my freshman year of college. He was lauded around campus for his flowing beard, his free verse poetry about going to the zoo and not knowing which side of the bars he was on, and the fact that the only outfit he owned consisted of a baja hoodie and a pair of tattered hemp pants. Even though baja hoodies are widely available at beachside shops for, like, 20 bucks, high-end label Gryphon decided to make its own version and sell it for $400. I don’t know many stoned philosophers with that much extra cash on hand. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Why Frat Boys Are The New Hippies

To those of you too busy reading about the historic uprisings in the Middle East, let me catch you up really quickly on the ongoing turmoil in the faraway country of Charlie Sheen. The millionaire sitcom star has been publicly self-destructing. Years of alleged substance abuse, marital problems and bizarre behaviors have, apparently, climaxed. Over the past week or so, he has seemingly divided like a cell into multiple versions of himself and simultaneously appeared on every live television talk show currently being produced. But like most modern celebrity scandals, the personal immolation we’re witnessing isn’t really about the vaguely human celebrity whose antics and flaws and outrageous moral lapses are beamed from dozens of differently shaped boxes directly to our brains.

We Get 3 Times As Much Action As The Women Of The Free Love Generation

Score (literally) for the women of today. A new study shows that even though our mothers didn’t have to worry about STDs, body hair, or even clothes, that we are getting laid way more than those hippies. A survey of 3,000 women revealed that women between the ages of 18 and 24 had on average 5.65 partners in the last 10 years while those free lovers of the 1960s only had about 1.67. In the 1970s that number jumped to 3.72—blame it on Our Bodies, Ourselves?—and in the 1990s it climbed to just under five. So what’s up with that? Are women getting hornier, or is the sexual revolution just running amok in our genitals? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

American Apparel Tries To Make Tie Dye Happen

Sure, I had a tie dye kit … when I was 11. But American Apparel‘s come up with the idea to sell bottles of dye for $4 so crafty daredevils can artfully stain their own tights, men’s briefs and zip hoodies. Tanks, harem pants, and tube bras which have already been tie dyed are a safer bet if you’re worried about turning your fingers swirly purple, blue and green. Hmm, will hip hippies hop on the love bus? Somehow, I don’t see this one happening as a trend for fall. Maybe a pride of hipsters who all look like they wandered home from a Phish concert will prove me wrong. [American Apparel Tie Dye] Keep reading »

Dirty Hair = Clean Air

Hippies are lovable, hairy, and the reason you can get soy milk at most coffee shops. While the world needs all the help it can get, hippies usually need a bath. But now they finally have science on their side. A study, conducted at the University of Missouri, tested 16 hair samples, eight washed and eight unwashed, over a 24-hour period. Researchers found that the un-shampooed samples were able to absorb seven times as much ground level ozone as the cleaner strands. While ozone exposure is attributed to respiratory problems and a rise in deaths, unwashed hair usually leads to a decrease in sex appeal. So, we’re torn between our lungs and our looks — guess it all depends on if you want your breathing to be just as shallow. [New Scientist]

A Trend From Chile

Apparently, hundreds of teenagers gather in public parks in Chile to take part in orgies, called ponceo, where they anonymously get and give oral sex. (They refer to themselves as “Pokemones.”) Newsweek.com reports that sociologists have labeled the Pokemones an “urban tribe,” a term that has also been applied to hippies, punks, and goths, but this particular movement has nothing to do with political statements. No, they’re just into high-tech gadgets, Japanese anime, and orgies in the park. [Newsweek.com] Keep reading »
