Bring it on back [10 Oct 2006|11:54am]

I must say, I'm tired. I'm tired of going to school and of going to work and of all the bullshit that keeps piling up on this beautiful blue-green ball of ours. Everyone is fucking it up, and I'm tired of it. I take comfort in knowing that it's all illusory, but that comfort is short-lived when I remember that so many people believe the illusion to be real, just because it goes by the title Reality.

I was talking about school and work with my mother the other day, and she asked what I would do if I could do anything in the world. I couldn't say what I would do, but I told her what I knew I didn't want to do, and that was anything along the lines of getting a job and a 30-year loan on a house. It's just silly. Why would I bust ass to get a good job so that I can make a lot of money so that I can pay for my shelter and food and entertainment and happiness when I can get all of those things for free?

I'm going to move up to Humboldt County in the spring, regardless of whether or not I have a housing situation lined up. Austin and I will just camp. Hell, I'd probably rather camp than get a house. I need to earn some money to buy some land, though, because I want to build my own home. Ideally, it would be a large plot of land and many people would build their own homes there and we would for our own community, off the grid and living off the land. Food can be grown and killed, pot can be grown, beer can be brewed, clothes can be made of hemp or pelts, weapons and tools can be fashioned, homes built, a community would prosper.

That's truly what I want to do, so I need to do it. I can't do something else. I belong in the mountains, not in the suburbs or the cities. And to the mountains I shall go.

Man, I'm glad there wasn't any "patio time" after work tonight. Right as I was leaving town after work, a CHP pulls me over. I get all nervous and shit cause my pipe is in the glove box, but it's in it's hidden spot. Anyway, the guy tells me my license plate light was out, and that I pulled away from a green light too fast. Which, you know, is stupid. I saw him pull two people over already that night too. He must've been bored. Oh well. I smoked some hash before work, so that was nice.

So I've pretty much decided that I'm going to Alaska. I don't have a plan or any resources (cash), but I'm going in the sense that if I don't, then my life will be a failure. How hard could it be to move to Alaska, though? All I need is some cash. I'll just build my house out of the wood from the Viking ship Austin and I are going to build and sail there. I can see it now. Longhouse made from the Viking ship. Each of us will have our own cabins, preferably in the trees, Ewok villiage style. We'll have our pot garden, naturally. Some plants will be for bud, some for hash, and some for cannabutter. I'll use the hemp to make bags and shit. I plan on taking a whole tribe of people up there and starting our own little village. Or at least neighborhood. Or a commune. Hell yeah, a commune would be rad.

arts and crafts, anyone? [12 Feb 2006|05:47pm]

I've heard that "arts and crafts" type things are common hobbies among us hippie folk. At any rate, I know that most hippies I know, including myself, tend to make a lot of things themselves.

So I'm just wondering what you guys like to do as hobbies.

Some of my personal favorite things to do:
-cooking / baking
-tye dying
-friendship bracelet making (I use embroidery floss, not hemp)

How about you? Maybe we should organize a Darn Hippies swap week!?

I fell in love with the girl who sits in front of me in my logic class today, but I'm pretty sure it's only because she smells pretty and has a hemp shoulder bag. What can I say, hemp turns me on ;) Darn hippies...

In other news, I can't sleep. I'll go to bed around 10, fall asleep around 12, wake up pretty much every hour, and not be able to really go back to sleep after 4. Heh, I know smoking a bowl before bed would pretty much solve this problem.

hitchhiking [18 Jan 2006|05:16pm]

I've always found hitchhiking a very appealing thing for a hobby. One of these summers I plan to hitchhike across America.

Anyway I just found a neat website about hitchhiking and I thought I'd share it.

So... hippie type films.
It'd be interesting to compile a list of them all. Are there a lot of them?

Of the top of my head the only ones I can think of are:
-Dazed and Confused
-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
-Half Baked
-Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Additions? I know there are a couple more at LEAST!

Interview with Chuck Dukowski (of Black Flag) [04 Jan 2006|03:40pm]

INTERVIEWER: "You follow domestic events and politics, and the world abroad. How has America transformed in the last decades and what can be done to make things better? What does the re-election of George W. Bush in 2004 signify to you?"

CHUCK:"I'm glad you asked about politics. Since I'm a bass player, I know everything about it. We are on the cusp of change. When I hear that American soldiers in Iraq are listening to punk rock while they kill people, I know that "punk" has lost its original meaning, or at least anything I meant. We were reacting to the bullshit that the watered-down hippie thing had become, to the exclusionist coke-filled clubs and record industry. We were disgusted with the whole Jackson Browne / James Taylor acoustic simpering. Hippie had stopped being Jerry Rubin flipping off Congress. It had lost what was threatening, what was challenging. So we did something different, something that somehow got named "punk rock."

For a time I wondered, when is the new revolution coming? Certainly punk has come to shit, but when I thought about it, I realized what a bullshit scam the revolution is. The revolution becomes a style, something that gets co-opted by pigs to get your dollar. The naming of a movement is so polluting. The freshness and purity of a creative product becomes burdened with some name and all the other stuff that rushes under that name's banner. I used to think political revolution was a good idea. Then I realized political revolution is the same as artistic revolution! They want your dollar and your blood.

Look what happens in a revolution: someone has the idea that there shouldn't be such a big divide between the rich and the poor. Probably that person isn't even the one who starts the overthrow, they're just conceptualizing. But someone power-hungry starts some shit, and the next thing all these poor people, all these human beings, who just want a decent life, are dying in a bloody revolution and they end up with Mao or Stalin or George Washington! 'Cause that revolution was a scam, too. The American Revolution didn't benefit the regular colonists. It benefited the rich colonists who wanted more wealth and power and slaves than the English were going to let them have. The book The People's History of The United States really explains this cogently.

But we need a change, a major, major change. The answer lies with every one of us. We have to be about peace. All this violence is wrong. We need to understand on a really deep level that everything we do is political. Our clothes are political. They tell everyone around us what we stand for. How we spend is political. It affects so many lives. How we feel is political. All this alienation is no accident.

Our government works hard to keep us apart, to breed hate, to pit the bottom against the middle while the tiny tippy top rapes the world. Our country has a school system that teaches mindless obedience and pits parents against their children. It doesn't have to be this way! We need to do every little thing we can to undermine the power of the government. Make fun of the government! It's a vital act of patriotism. Co-opt their power! Take the power back, bit by bit, till when the king says jump, everyone sits!"

Are ya dizzy when you're stoned? [01 Jan 2006|01:32pm]

You know, one of the greatest things on earth is when you take your stash to a party and you have some the next morning. Honestly, we smoked a copious amount of marijuana last night. I'm surprised that I've got two big nugs left. Well, not so much shocked, seeing as how I was the one with the ganj so I controlled when and how much would be smoked, but more glad; relieved. Hope you guys all had kickass New Years Eves.

somebody had to ask sooner or later [24 Dec 2005|11:25pm]

So, even though our community is still new and not too many people are in it yet, I'm just wondering what kind of things you like/dislike in these communities and if there's anything you'd like to have in a community for hippies, what would it be? Please let me know, and thanks everyone for joining this is going to be fun stuff!

Keep a-rollin' and tumblin' all night longCollapse )

So many fantastic colors appear in a wonderland [20 Dec 2005|09:06pm]

Hi everyone. My name is Zac (if the username didn't give that one away). I guess you could say I'm a hippie inasmuch as I would rather smoke pot, listen to Led Zeppelin records and play my guitar all day than get a "job" or be a "productive member of society." But seriously, I'm currently attending college where I'm majoring in history. (Can you say hippie history teacher?) I think that's about it.

HowdyCollapse )

from The Teachings of Don Juan [20 Dec 2005|12:33am]

"Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that any path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. This question is one that only a very old man asks...: Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same: they lead nowhere, they are paths going through the bush, or into the bush... Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead to nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you."
