the counter culture.

alternative hippie culture and how Leary impacted on that.

FRASER CLARK was the founder of the Zippies and alternative rave clubs

emerging paradigm of the rave generation, helping formulate a rave
consciousness based on techno shamanism. Fraser hosted Tim Leary at his
San Francisco alternative rave club Megatripolis and will show how Tim
impacted on the rave generation as well as the hippie generation.

BRIAN BARRETT was a legendary character from the Beat Generation who

2) 12:00-1:00 Synergy Debate: Tim Leary, Saint or Sinner? Did Tim Learys ideas on psychedelics help or

The panellists and audience will examine the ideas of Leary in context
of the reality of psychedelic drug use by the alternative culture from
the 60s until now. The panel will comprise the previous speakers plus
special guest experts on psychedelics and psychedelic usage.

The debate etc will take place in the deep blue arches, which will be hosted by Sangita Sounds.

As I said I'm gonna be there anyway so the fact that a bloody great bunch of HOPpers turning up is gonna be sweeter than a cupful of Canderel (and probably just as good for you)



I'll be going to Whirl-Y-Gig the week before so that'll be two huge party type thingies with a week of South Coast HOPper interaction in between.



Are party hat-tricks mandatory? Or will a bottle of Bubbly do?

He will indeed... It's called 'death'.



Cole, you wanna come to Whirl-Y-Gig then? biggrin



Come on Cole! You're only a year older than me! And I'm not past it yet, still raring to go! (could just be my equivalent of buying a red sports car during my midlife crisis!)



Everyone is coming from all over the country! How often does that happen? Go on... I'll make it worth your while... (Hang on I'm trying to convince him to come!)

feeling less old now - cheers gabe! hug

had a word with the princess and i think she agrees that an early synergy is on the cards - we'll be aiming to leave by midnight.

which means we'll leave by 2:00.
if we're lucky.

people who want to spin are well advised to get there early anyway ubbrollsmile
