Hippy quote of the day dedicated to Whaaa:
'Old hippies don't die, they just lie low until the laughter stops and their time comes round again.'
My favourite 60's Hippie Activist - Abbie Hoffman
Here is his bio and a great photo taken by Richard Avedon before he started doing fashion models. I mean 'snapping' fashion models. I'm also
including the photo but it might be banned as it contains a naughty word:
(November 30, 1936 - April 12, 1989)
Activist/author of Steal This Book. Countercultural icon of the 1960's known for his rejection and parody of corporate America. Invented the term
"yippies" (Youth International Party). During a major anti-war demonstration, he organized an "Exorcism of the Pentagon," in which over 50,000
people surrounded the Pentagon in an effort to levitate the building with their combined psychic energy. He remained a full-time activist until 1973,
when he was arrested for the sale of coc aine. Facing a mandatory life sentence, Hoffman went underground and disappeared for 6 years - during
which time he had plastic surgery and nervous breakdowns.
Committed suicide the same year George HW Bush assumed office.
