Posted:Dear Hippies,

There is nothing wrong with taking a bath, eating a chicken or shaving your junk! Seriously, why can't I go to an event without the dirt kidds riding me about my impact on the planet BC I make my hygiene a daily concern?

I sit and hope that an alligator will pop out of the water and attack you from behind the entire time I am smiling and agreeing with your over bearing views about my personal practices and how they damage the environment.

I'm willing to wager that I impact the environment far less than you do!

With Love,

Another Damn Party Kidd smile

Are you kidding? The pixies are what got me lost in the first place! I was wondering around the forest for ages before I came down and found a road.

I am a reformed raver that is now a hippy (I have the dreads and everything now)

and I often look back to my rave days and my fluoro pants and wonder if I was the one enjoying myself, or whether it was just the drugs I was taking, and it makes a big difference to me now. cause it all seems so fake now and that all my experiences were not real (a lot of them weren't)

It kinda makes taking drugs worthless IMHO

oh, and my body is a temple. blah blah blah....
It only accepts offerings of coffee and spicy foods now.


sticks and stones my break my bones, but ski patrol will save me.

I think I will take the more 'enlightened' path and pick another day to rain on someone's 'parade' smile

Posted:@Fugee: *high five* grin

What does some Pop/Mainstream concert like Glastonbury have to do with either scene? I mean like... I don't get it...

Anyways I do have an issue with lacks of cleanliness saying it's for the greater good because while moderating our usage of soap and water is nice and such, being disrespectful to society by being smelly and germ ridden is just insane. Not that this issue doesn't happen to everyone time to time, but seriously when it's done on purpose it's seriously demented in it's own way...

Unless you don't contaminate the non-consenting public we do have a right to hold issues if you invade our space with such. tongue2

It helps us to describe the intangible parts of individuality to people other than ourselves and adds a contextual imagery anecdote while conversing about experiences to those who were not present.

I don't see labels as good or bad, but more so a tool to aid communication.

At the end of a three day event even the smell difference between a hippy and a raver are indistinguishable! The only difference would be how long they have smelt like that for...:P

Posted:lol2 kids need labels - and those only growing old, they need them even harder 'cause they never manage to grow up wink

RC your american eyes miss the details in my numbers: 1,6 not 1.6 was what I was writing... wink and it's not "the total number" but "at one given time" ... demographics of DE vs US now spared.

meditate unseen - bm is epic too meditate

bounce2 it's finally a rainy day in Berlin and it's sooo amazing because the recent heat was quite dreadful on the earth... but I suspect you haven't learned to feel happy from the inside and dance in the rain (uffie - saying it and the sun literally breaks trough the clouds)... Maybe you're not able to feel euphoria in the middle of a forest, never hugged a tree and felt its power, patience and love for the mother. Maybe you still need to generate this euphoria by taking stuff? Wait some time, eventually you'll get there by "sharing" and "giving" heart wink

@ Oz - even if RC's claim is true that you try hard to be like the Us ... having travelled you both... I really hope you manage to keep your own identity hug2

A good party is a good party - and I never took size nor music over people creating the vibe... wink

weavesmiley ah - rebellious adolescent little buggers - I remember you sitting at the circle with BIG eyes eek gazing at the firedancers... now that you got some skills on your own you need to rub on us? Prove you got the balls? From behind your keyboard ??????? lol2 wink here - have another candy, raver - wait, pick your colour juggle crazy nana wink

But I will 'give' you a victory on 1.6 million BC I omitted that I read that to see if I could get away with it.

Is it raining in 'Shanti' town? You may want to stay indoors and cook all day, but if you do that, you may not get a hippie bath. tongue2 Strange, I thought you were in Munich though. But seriously, spare me the rubbish about the forest and euphoria.

FT, we've been 'sharing' ever since I can remember posting.

oops "1.6" - my bad... smile sorry for having caused your confusion and not noticing after. We usually say 1,6 - my bad smile

BM a sham? At least an epic one... and ecologically sustainable wink

more ubblove mate - its the only thing that grows when sharing wink

Rubbish euphoria in the forests? Better than Fluoro trash in the cities - my personal preference.

Nupp - not Munich, it's Berlin all the way (and really I wouldn't mind it raining here even for an entire week straight because I usually have 6 months solid sunshine during "winter")

Is that now "late" or "early" for you? Should be about ~3am no?

Almost 3am. It's an all nighter week for me this week. Tonnes of downtime! Feels like 3am though *yawn*

And these people, in these pictures, are wannabes having fun. They usually become productive drones or hippies about the time they've had one bad trip too many.

They were considered posers before I became a part of the game in the late 90s and honestly ruin the scene's dignity, integrity, and true essence...

However since we're all inclusive I'm polite and let it slide, won't let obnoxious kids with shady motives ruin a good night, music, and dancing for me. It's a waste and counterproductive for everyone when you can just live and let live, not too many candy kids at the parties I attend because they aren't into the music and other parts of the scene that draws me in personally.

You won't see an etard in a dance battle or circle. You won't see a friendlier rivalry than that amongst the househeads and breakers! You also won't see the candy ravers within' the trance tribes either, the congregate in their own corner within the subculture.
