Disclaimer, these are not all hippies, but they all did have long hair in their later years!

I tend to think that Hippies are much like Phish's Trey Anastacio, springing forth from the womb fully formed as hacky-sack playing, djembe thumpin' hippy-dippies, but that obviously is not the case....enjoy!

We begin our journey with a young Tommy Chong, before he was a burn-out...(that's him on the far right, looking suspiciously like Johnny Depp. Oh, by the way, that's NOT a skinny Jack Black in the middle of the picture)

Next we see a young Jerry Garcia...brighted eyed and bushy tailed, fresh as a spring daisy!

Oh Janis Joplin, you could have been the perfect 50's suburban housewife, but NOOOOOHHHHH!!!

Little Jimmy Morrison, folks! (Yeah, he's the nice kid from next door you just paid 50 cents to for mowing your lawn!)

And he brought his friend, Neil Young, (who lives on Elm street, a couple blocks over) to help....

Is that you, Steve "the colonel" cropper? Oh wait, that's you when you were still a brash young Lieutenent!

Steve Tyler, class valedictorian, yearbook commitee, glee club...and no, this dude used to NOT look like a lady...

"Just like a white winged pledge pin" was a song Stevie Nicks wrote while a member of Tau Epsilon sorority. She just slightly modified the lyrics after her first acid hit...

"Oh, that's Gerry Petty's son, Thomas...you know, I sponsored him into the Moose lodge last year"

Willie Nelson, rockabilliest:

Charles Manson, John Birch society, chapter 2135.....

Here's a Pre-Hippie George Carlin all clean and neat ~

Here's Jesus before he went Hippie. His head is glowing perhaps he has a fever?

Sorry but I couldn't find an actual photograph.:wink:

There is actually a group of people right now engaged in a new translation of the bible. Their concern was that the bible was too liberal, and depictions of Jesus as a peace- and- love hippy was competely wrong. So, some fine theologians from Bob Jones university are making their own bible, one with all those pesky references to love and hippyness removed. Yes, it comes with pictures. Gone are the ones with Jesus wearing the white robes and with the long hair, though. Now they modeled him after John Tesh..(or was it john Ashcroft?) Of course, Charlton Heston is Moses (a no brainer) and they got Bruce Willis to model for the part of Paul of tarsus.
They took out the entire sermon on the mount. They felt this was really the most troubling and problematic part of the whole Bible. They did leave the story in about Jesus turning water into grape juice. Yes, grape juice. The consensus was that wine was too "french", and therefore un-american.

As you scroll down and read this link, pay close attention to some of the examples they set forth. At first, I thought it was a joke or hoax, but sadly...it's not! These people are serious about actually taking out parts of the bible that they don't agree with!

So, of course the image of Jesus will be replaced with this:

which in thier opinion, is far better then this:

Jeff(btd)

p.s. your just jealous you don't have any hair.

TM

Jeff, we are waiting for that incriminating 6th grade photo from YOU, my friend!

Dude I didn't get my hair cut till I was 3 years old,
Then the man made me get all clean cut and respectable.
But then in 7th grade I started growing it all out again.
But i have never been a Hippy, and never done any incriminating acts.

I'm a good little boy, just look like a dirtbag.
aka, don't judge a book by its cover.
Mr. go out to your truck for band breaks.

Big Tiki dude, 1987

That must have been when Jeff was doing commercials for Aqua Velva.

Great thread Lucas!!!

Dear Lucas-
I was just wondering if there is a difference between hippies and long hairs? Also, which is cooler in your eyes A) Stoners or B) Hippies ?

Here is a wrench in the machine:

Eden Ahbez has sometimes been referred to as the first hippie.

plus I wouldn't say that Stevie was a Hippie.
maybe in a very Vague way she could come off that way.
but She was into coke, not weed right?

I think we would have to agree on a definition for "long Hair"...because that could cover everyone from General Custer

to the lead singer of the band Poison!

But to answer your first question, in my opinion there is a difference between Hippies and long hairs. I honestly believe one can be a hippy and have short or shortish hair. Now, there will be some identifying attributes to a hippy, though.

  1. "Hackey Sack". Hippies use them, like them (and have larger versions which they call bean-bags).

  2. "Djembe". I know, I keep bringing them up..but a hippy will always have at least one Djembe around the house. (Rarely other types of percussion, though. And even if they do, they won't play them with any sort of rythem). Sometimes you can even see the hippies banging away on their Djembes "en masse", )like down at the huntington pier). But keep in mind, to be a proper Djembe-hippy, you must also have a beautific smile on your face while flailing away at the drum, with eyes cast up to the heavens.

  3. "Bob marley" Rasta T-Shirt. Without it, you cannot possibly call yourself a hippy in good standing.

  4. "trust fund". You cannot have done any real work in your life.

  5. "Hippy smirk". This is what most of the members of the band "phish" have on their faces at all times. And yes, you guessed it: it's because they have "trust funds".

To answer the second part of your question, stoners are clearly cooler. You see, stoners might also be skaters,

and that's always considered cool.

But, growing tofu on a collective in the hills above Berkley, california is not as cool as being a skater. (Even if your Hippy girlfriend is kind of hot, resembling Jessica Biel in a "Good Lord, you are cute but I wish you would take a bath" kind of way....)

He looks even more like Big tiki dude then big tiki dude does! Eden Ahbez is a very tough question. The man is clearly a hippy, but he writes EXOTICA!!! That is so crazy and insane it totally works! "Nature Boy" is a classic. My favorite version is that of Avante Garde trumpeter, Jon Hassell...off the album "fascinoma"

Stevie Nicks...Hippy in the sense that you could totally see her dancing by herself in some mystic forest clearing, grooving with a pict....

But then again, she sings with Tom Petty on "leather and lace", which is NOT a hippy song.

(Hippies can evolve, and are subject to genetic mutations, like anyone else.)

For example, by the 3-4th generation, the offspring of hippies could become, say, Garth Brooks fans. (But this would depend on the amount of solar radiation and if there were a lot of sun spots/solar storms in a given year.)

Clearly, if the same chick who talked about "Morning maniac music" at woodstock could sing "we built this city", then anything is possible! (Grace Slick, not Stevie Nicks)

Hippy work consists of candle-making, sprout-growing and tye-dying. Stoner work consists of glass-blowing (usually pipes and bongs), metal-work (like welding garbage cans into animals) and baking (usually brownies and cookies)!

TM

OMG!

That's pretty damning evidence that JR would probably like to see dissapear!

I actually thought about this slant, of hippy to short-hair, but it's too obvious. As people get older, they start losing hair (yeah, I'm an expert on that subject) so it's not too hard to find hippies who cleaned up later due to male pattern balding....!! (I guess an obvious example would be Neil Peart, drummer for RUSH....)

Yep! That's about the way I see it, too.

I am glad some of you are getting the humorous aspect to this thread! (After all, who doesn't look at a picture of several hippies playing hacky-sack and start laughing!...well, maybe the hippies themselves...they tend to be a rather humor-less lot!)

I'm not going to pull a Brett Favre and talk "too much" on this topic
(learned my lesson from the Mickey Hart thread) but I strongly disagree
that hippies are humorless. I used to spend a lot of time with hippies...
the 60s and 70s version...and they laughed all the time.

Hey, I just turned 60 last Monday, so I knew my share of Hippies. My friends and I were long-hairs. ala Buffalo Springfield etc. Long hair, fringed jackets, jeans and either converse tennis shoes or cowboy boots, take your pick. Growing up in Tucson, cowboy boots were in. As far as Hippies being without humor, not so. We all laughed our way through the 60s. And being close to the border with good, cheap pot, the laughing came pretty easy.

Hippies kind of sucked because they extincted beatniks.

Most beatniks were real. Most hippies were suburban kids dressed stupid and trying desperately to be cool.

TM

Exactly!

Well since this thread has been resurrected...
Here's the band Attila.


The keyboardist went solo and became...

oops, went backwards on this one also.

Good Morning!

Henry Rollins! Never could have been a hippy. He just does'nt have it in him. And remember, according to my theory, being a skater supercedes being a hippy. The two are not mutually compatable. Same as how Buffett and Tiki cancel each other out, as does Mickey Hart and Tiki.

And thank you for bumping this thread! It brought back great memories! (And reminded me of why people like Squid always hated me! Ha ha!)

It's funny how many of the 60s Hippies became Republicans.

I know, right?

The one poster had a point. Beatniks were the real deal...hippies, not so much!

TM

Its impossible to even listen to that unless your stoned, really stoned.
God damn Hippies!

Note to Stoners, you are not more "creative" when your stoned, you just think you are!
Thanks Lucas for damaging my Calm! :cry:

I got that from another thread somewhere out there called: "this is what Phish sounds like to people who don't like Phish".

Personally, I think it is hilarious! (and of course, I hate phish). Well, hate is a strong word. Let's just say I want them dead. Now.

1973-John Simon Ritchie pictured on his way to watch David Bowie perform in London. He’d have been 16 or 17 years old.

Four years later he joined the Sex Pistols.

But KB the 33rd, he was "Glam" then & not a Hippie....

Funny thread! How do we get Lucas to come back, Desecrate all of this threads? Do we want him to come back?

I guess he is not having it... Anyone who gets in trouble for making fun of the Beatles is ok in my book.

“Facial Profiling”
Story in the news recently.
In an incident of what Duck Dynasty star Jase Robertson calls "facial profiling," he was escorted out of a swanky NYC hotel after a staff member assumed he was an undesirable sort. Robertson and the rest of his Louisiana family were in the Big Apple promoting the Season 4 premiere of their hit A&E reality show, which drew nearly 12 million viewers last night, a record-breaking ratings success. But, even with all the cash from their family business and the ratings coup, the Robertsons may not yet be household names -- or faces, which was more than evident during Robertson's encounter with a confused hotel employee. "I asked where the bathroom was and he said, 'Right this way, sir.' He was very nice," Robertson shared on Live With Kelly & Michael. "He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, 'Good luck.'"

He did not become a hippie

It's threads like this that are one reason I am so hated on this forum!

(But, I still think it is funny as all heck!)

Henry Rollins about 1985 in Knoxville. He had the long hair. He read and wrote poetry. And he was trippin balls that night!
