Back in my Corporate America days I was always shopping for dress shirts and Ties but I always passed on by the JGarcia tie. Just wasn't my style.

March 13,2007 Glossolalia

the speaking in unknown or nonexistent tounges. Words such as this and gnosis are religious and biblical and thus not new to the wworld before the hippie era, but they achieved new and expanded use in the vocabulary of the Western world through the counterculture.

WTF??
Did I miss something in the 60's and 70's (I know I did)?
This is new to me.

I don't think glossolalia and tongues should be mentioned on a family website

March 14,2007 Disneyland

a place of fantasy. Unnatural circumstances. originally a theme park in Southern california. During the Hippie era, it came to mean any thing or place that was unreal or phony.


OK, is the author making this stuff up just to fill this calendar?

I've been top La La land, that place is fun.

I was also at DisneyLand in Southern california in the early 70's with a couple of my druggie friends. Now that was a weird time.

Disneyland USA

Orange County Police Invade

Date: August 6, 1970

On this day in 1970 a group of "hippies" obtained entrance to Disneyland in Anaheim California. They ran rampant over the park, attempting to claim "Tom Sawyer's Island" for themselves. Disneyland, not knowing how to handle this breach of customary etiquette, called in the Orange County Police who arrived in full riot gear. The park was closed and all visitors were asked to depart, leaving Disneyland empty except for the remaining hippies. This was the first time the park was closed early. Earlier Disneyland was infamous for its policy of refusing entry to young men wearing beards, a common practice in California and especially in some cities of Orange County. No rain-check was given to the departing visitors.



Police take Main Street

Wow, the day got away from me today...

March 15, 2007 Castle, the

a large stone castle like house in the Feliz Hills of Los Angeles, alifornia. In 1966, it was a gathering place for members of the beat and hippie movement as well as musical and art luminaries, such as Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Lou reed, Nico, David Crosby, and Robbie Robertson. Owned by John Phillip Law, Tom Law and Jim Simmons, it was the home of future members of the Hog Farm, including photographer Lisa law. Many well-known rock artists' photographs were taken at The Castle.


This is another "news to me" post.

Many of their guests-including Bob Dylan, David Crosby, and Andy Warhol-became celebrities of the counterculture.

Looks good to me .......

It is in the Los Feliz hills of Los Angeles, and was owned by Tom Law who worked for Albert Grossman. Lisa Law's book Flashing on the Sixties relates some of what took place here when the Law's owned it.

"The Castle was found by Jack Simons who was a real estate investor and a good friend of John Law. John and Tom Law invested in the Castle with Jack in 1965. At that time, Tom Law was working as assistant to the director for Mike Nichols during the filming of' Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf'. Lisa Bachelis and Tom had met at a Peter Paul and Mary concert that same year in Berkeley. Lisa was the personal manager to Frank Werber, the manager of the Kingston Trio, and Tom was the road manager for Peter Paul and Mary. Tom and Lisa fell in love and Lisa moved to the castle during the winter of 1965.

The Castle rapidly became the hang out for musicians, poets, actors, political activists, and pranksters. Singer Barry McGuire moved into the suite on the first floor and Actor Severn Darden took up residence in the opium den in the basement. Patrick Close, a close friend of Lenny Bruce lived in the basement as well and Tom and Lisa lived in the tower room which overlooked the 3 acres of jade gardens. Bob Dylan rented one of the suites on the second floor during a stay in 1966 and Albert Grossman visited the castle many times during his stay. Grossman was also the manager of Peter Paul and Mary, thus the connection with Tom Law.

When the Velvet Underground had a gig at the Trip on Sunset strip, Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground stayed at the castle as well. This is where they met Severn Darden and Lou Reed wrote him into a song. Lisa Law shot the first Tim Hardin album cover in the garden and Richard and Mimi Farina sang a duet in the ballroom. Tiny Tim played and sang off the balcony and Allen Ginsberg recited poetry in front of the massive fireplace in the ballroom.

For one year, the Castle was the Mecca for the music scene. Tom and Lisa left to move to Yelapa, Mexico and a few years later the Castle was sold for less than it was purchased for. Since then it has had four owners. Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers had the gardens totally redone and when he was made an offer he could not refuse, he sold it to John Paul Getty Jr. who owns it today. The Castle no longer has the original gold leaf sealing but the ambiance of the majestic dining room and ballroom still has not lost its allure and the walls still resound with the tunes of the the Beatles singing their album 'Rubber Soul' as Tom and Lisa Law danced their wild and free dance... the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers of the new age."

Tweny five soldiers, including officers, were court martialed, but all ere exonerated or found not gulity except Lt. William Calley, who may have been the scapegoat foe the entire miltary system. Calley was paroled in 1975, after serving only 3 1/2 years of a 10 year sentence.

March 17-18, 2006 feminine principle or female force

in esoteric philosophy, the receptive, passive, and the negative aspect of the cosmos. Matter, form, and wisdom are usually considered feminine and are represented by goddesses in the pantheon of multiple god religions.


Happily, I know about the fermale force

Dutch, I got a Dennis Hopper update on this:
quote:
quote:
He's most recently being seen in some lame TV commercial for some money-managing company, where he's saying "your generation" (boomers) isn't going to "retire" in the old sense. The main lamesters are whoever wrote the commercial, but Dennis loses points for being the spokesman.
Valuable "Cool" points at that Peter.
This afternoon I saw one of these commercials I hadn't seen before. The tagline at the end of the commercial is with Dennis standing in a field of sunflowers, saying
"Flower Power was then;
dreams are now."



I think this is the moment he's saying it. He seemed so oily the way he delivered it, plus he's wagging that finger at the camera.

The company is Ameriprise Financial. Here are excerpts from a press release about this ad campaign with Hopper (uh-oh--now I'm calling him "Hopper" instead of "Dennis"):

New Evolution of Ameriprise Financial Advertising Emphasizes that "Dreams Don't Retire"
Broadcast ads feature actor Dennis Hopper and a 1960s-style red chair

MINNEAPOLIS September 7, 2006 Dreams don't retire. That's what Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE: AMP) is telling over 78 million baby boomers in a new advertising campaign that launches this Sunday, Sept. 10, during the first regular season broadcast of NBC Sunday Night Football at 8 p.m. eastern. The broadcast ads will feature a celebrity familiar to the boomer generation, actor Dennis Hopper. . . .

"Last year's groundbreaking campaign launched the Ameriprise Financial brand and focused on what we do to help boomers achieve their retirement dreams," says Jim Cracchiolo, chairman and chief executive officer of Ameriprise Financial. "Now we're telling boomers how we're redefining financial planning. It all begins with understanding our clients' dreams."

The ads are set in a variety of locations--including a beach, salt flats, and field of wildflowers--that convey the serenity many boomers hope to achieve in retirement. Sitting within these tranquil settings on a 1960s-style red chair is Hopper.

. . . Says Kim Sharan, EVP and chief marketing and communications officer of Ameriprise Financial, ". . . There is no better figure to personify our message than legendary actor Dennis Hopper, who embodies the spirit of the generation. With his help we are speaking with boomers, not at them."

In the broadcast ads, Hopper adopts a conversational style. . . .

This is an evolution of the advertising campaign that Ameriprise Financial launched in September 2005 as an independent, publicly-owned company following the spinoff from American Express Company, the sixth largest spinoff in corporate history.
