Yeah (sing the song, brother);
Now if-a six (uh, huh) turned out to be nine,
Oh, I don't mind, I don't mind (uh; well, all right);
If all the hippies cut off all their hair,
Oh, I don't care, oh, I don't care.

Dig:
'Cause I've got my own world to live through and (uh, huh)
And I ain't gonna copy you.

White-collar conservative flashin' down the street,
Pointin' their plastic finger at me, ha!
They're hopin' soon my kind will drop and die, but (uh)
I'm gonna wave my freak flag high,
High!
Oww!

Mysterious Billboard

As billboards go, it's a real stopper—a huge closeup photo of a pimply faced, wild-haired hippie, mounted on a ghastly yellow background and bearing the message, in red and black letters: BEAUTIFY AMERICA, GET A HAIRCUT. The poster has lately appeared on roadsides across the nation, generating no end of speculation about who or what is behind the campaign.

Some citizens of Atlanta, which boasts 80 of the billboards, worry that right-wingers were involved. In Miami, the posters are thought to be the handiwork of an eccentric millionaire; in Lancaster, Ohio, they are signed by the Lancaster Mothers' Association. Alas, though many mothers feel desperate enough to start such a campaign, a Lancaster Mothers' Association does not exist.

The real source is Miami's Donnelly Advertising Co., the giant outdoor ad agency. Donnelly failed to sell the idea to Gillette, but when the agency included a slide of the billboard as comic relief in its sales pitch at last summer's outdoor advertising convention in St. Louis, the boys instantly recognized it as just the thing to stimulate what they like to call "billboard awareness." Donnelly to date has sold 1,500 of the 24-panel posters to billboard owners in all 50 states at $8.50 each.

A Marine battalion commander at Camp Pendleton, Calif., has posted wall-size copies in his unit's barracks "as an inspiration to our troops," and residents of Shreveport, La., are thinking of having bumper stickers made up along similar lines. As for Donnelly, it is planning to start pasting them on its own billboards this week, and the agency's John Donnelly Jr. knows exactly where he wants the first one to go: Harvard Square.

Ayla - thanks for finding that billboard. I can remember the beautify america schtick used in vain attempt to demean hippies (like any of us cared...this just proved a point about the false ideals being spouted by the establishment).

She asks me why
I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night
Hair that's a fright
I'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
Don't know
It's not for lack of break
Like the Grateful Dead
Darling

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short

Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself

They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Brilliantined
Biblical hair

My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I thought Hitch was a match maker

I used to hitchhike all over the place when I was younger. You dont see many any more. I have picked up a few along the way. Never if my family is in the car. I hate to think that way but this world is not what use to be.

Will Smith right?

I never hitchhiked, but I have given some rides.

Jan 18,2007....Hitch

"Hey man, can I hitch a ride down the road with you?"

I was a big hitchhiker between 1969 to 1973.
Turned 16 in 73 and got my own car then.

on another note:



Looks like a bunch of bullet holes in the sign

I'll admit - used to 'hitch' all the time back in the late 60's/early70's during periods when I didn't have a car for one reason or another. Also, picked up my share of hitch hikers. Was lucky to never have anything bad happen (although I did have an incident once when I realized the driver whose car I had entered was a sicko and I jumped out of the car as soon as possible - last hitch for me). I would not want my kids doing this today, though - just seems like there are so many MORE wierdos and dangerous people walking around today.

Deb, I hitched occasionally in the mid- to late '70s, basically up and down one particular interstate. I sometimes hitched elsewhere out of town, but never in town, since you can cover half the community by walking just an hour.

I was going to say, though, that there were plenty of weirdos out there back then! I was invited to do unsavory things, but I was never threatened or hindered from being dropped off when I wanted out.

One guy on the interstate, though--almost as soon as I got in the car, he started raving on and on about all the trouble he was in with the army (Fort Bragg, I think it was) and about his going AWOL yesterday and driving all day from Georgia and speeding (on speed). Then it got worse, as the reason he was heading northwest was to kill his wife and her lover in Iowa. He was going to catch them and shoot them both.

"You don't believe me?!" he yelled as I was just sitting there, pretty silently taking this in. "Well, look at this!" he yelled as he reached under the driver's seat. I thought he was going to pull out a gun or something, but instead his hand came up clutching a traffic citation and some other papers showing all the trouble he had gotten in at his army base the past week. (To his credit, later he did reach under there and pull me out a warm can of beer.)

We smoked, and I kinda talked him down a little bit, mostly by talking about the daughter they shared and how a girl needs a mommy and how she needs her daddy to be around. But then we got stopped by the state police for speeding (mph). My driver nervously said to me he couldn't give them his I.D., which I understood, and quick--I should give my driver's license to him (before the days of photo drivers' licenses).

You might think this would be a good opportunity for me to get out of the car and even report him to the police. I had all this pot with me, though, and I didn't want the police to have any reason to look for it, any trouble with the driver. So, I slipped him my license before the cop got to his window, and "I" got the speeding ticket. I think the driver gave me about $20 cash, which didn't cover half the ticket.

Well, this had gotten him all freaked out again, and once we got going again, he vented by going off about his cheating wife some more. So, I had to talk him down some more. Besides the 20-minute stop for the ticket, I was in that car with him for about 2 hours--intense! An AWOL speed freak with murderous intentions!

By the time we parted, he agreed he wasn't going to kill them, but he was going to "mess them up real bad" and teach them a lesson. I was checking the papers for stories out of Iowa for a few days but didn't see anything.

Jan 19,2007....Helter-Skelter

a very old term of unknown origin mreaning disorganized or without a plan. Used in the lyrics of a Beatle song that came to the attention of Charles Manson, an ex-con and dictatorial leader of a small comune in Southern California. When Manson's followers, on his orders killed actress Sharon Tate and fout others in a house in the Hollywood Hills, the words helter-skelter were found written on the refrigerator in a victim's blood.


Boy, I rememebr those days, the insanity around this whole mess. A few of us got completely engrossed in two books, The Family and Helter Skelter by Vincent Bouglosi, the later being his experience as the prosecutor of the Family. Cap that with a trip cross country the following summer to some of those Southern California areas and we were sufficiently spooked out by the whole thing.

Helter-Skelter is a name of an amusement park slide in England. That is where Paul McCartney came up with that song. I wonder if they still have these over there. I will have to ask Colin.

When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and turn
and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again
Yeah, yeah, yeah


As for Manson he is on sick man. I remember reading the book. It really grossed me out but was fascinated at the same time!

We sure do Rob ...



After whizzing down the slide around the outside of the tower you arive at the bottom somewhat dizzy and disoriented, hence the other meaning of the term.

Clinging on to hessian mats and spiralling down fairground slides. These slides began appearing at British fairs around the turn of the 20th century



As for Manson & his Helter Skelter connection .... sick
