Truckin got my chips cashed in. keep truckin, like the do-dah man
Together, more or less in line, just keep truckin on.

Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on main street.
Chicago, new york, detroit and its all on the same street.
Your typical city involved in a typical daydream
Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings.

Dallas, got a soft machine; houston, too close to new orleans;
New yorks got the ways and means; but just wont let you be, oh no.

Most of the cast that you meet on the streets speak of true love,
Most of the time theyre sittin and cryin at home.
One of these days they know they better get goin
Out of the door and down on the streets all alone.

Truckin, like the do-dah man. once told me youve got to play your hand
Sometimes your cards aint worth a dime, if you dont layem down,

Sometimes the lights all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.

What in the world ever became of sweet jane?
She lost her sparkle, you know she isnt the same
Livin on reds, vitamin c, and cocaine,
All a friend can say is aint it a shame?

Truckin, up to buffalo. been thinkin, you got to mellow slow
Takes time, you pick a place to go, and just keep truckin on.

Sittin and starin out of the hotel window.
Got a tip theyre gonna kick the door in again
Id like to get some sleep before I travel,
But if you got a warrant, I guess youre gonna come in.

Busted, down on bourbon street, set up, like a bowlin pin.
Knocked down, it gets to wearin thin. they just wont let you be, oh no.

Youre sick of hangin around and youd like to travel;
Get tired of travelin and you want to settle down.
I guess they cant revoke your soul for tryin,
Get out of the door and light out and look all around.

Sometimes the lights all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.

Truckin, Im a goin home. whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,
Back home, sit down and patch my bones, and get back truckin on.
Hey now get back truckin home.

Feb 1, 2007..Hair: The American Tribal Love Rock Musical

the definitive play and movie about the Hippie cultue. It opened in NYC at the Biltmore Theater in 1967 and eventually played extensive runs in most major cities in the USA and theroughout the world. Hair is the most successful venue in communicating hippie ideals, but, like so much of the counterculture's commentary, it was too satirical, ironic, and sacriligious for most consevative senseibilities.

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

Had almost forgotten that the Cowsills did a cover of the Hair theme song. Remember the movie - 1st I can recall seeing the actors John Savage, Treat Williams, and Beverly D'Angelo. This movie always makes me think of Age of Aquarius...

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revalation
And the mind's true liberation
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

Feb 2,2007.. Far Out

a statement of approval. It can mean OK, good, wondeful,amazing or out of the ordinary. Same usage as out of sight. Althought sometimes the brunt of humorous hippie characterizations, it is now very much accepted as a common English idiom. The use and misuse of this phrase is an important indication of how cool a person is. A phrase with many uses, it is one of the 125 most prominent words or phrases that evolved out of the hippie era into continued use today.

We used to make fun of the term far out by saying "far-rm out!"

Remember when John Denver was substituting for Johnny Carson as host of The Tonight Show one time, and during the interviews, he'd say, "Far out!" to everything the guests were saying?! It got kinda ludicrous quickly--seriously, it seemed like he said, "Far out!" at least 20 times, but maybe it was more like 10, but the audience was laughing more and more each time he did it, and he didn't know why. It was a little bit of a joke on the show, and about John Denver in general, after that.

Chong was given his first guitar at age 11, and started playing country and western music. He switched to rhythm and blues a few years later, but didn't take his first toke until the age of 17, when a Chinese bass player handed him a joint.

"No one knew what pot was," said Chong in an interview with the Edmonton Sun in May 2003. "I kept that one joint. It lasted me a long time. I'd take a few tokes and put it out. It really changed my life. I quit school right away and decided I wanted to be a blues musician."

When I think about anyone saying "Far Out", Tommy Chong immediately pops into my mind.Cheech and Chong movies crack me uip ... "Nice Dreams '

I'll still say "Far Out" every now and then.

And Yes also said the "Farm Out" version, seems like we were saying "Farm Out"
around 72 or 73, that sound about right?

Feb 3-4, 2007.."You're either part of the problem or part of the solution"


an indictment by (Leroy) Eldridge Cleaver in a speech in San Fransico in 1968. It means that it's wrong to be complacent about social issues and uninvolved in solving social problems.


That is still part of my vocabulary to this day. I don't use it much but it certanily made an impression on me.
Of course sometimes I use it jokng around

Feb 5,2007 Burroughs, William S (Feb 5,1914- Aug 2,1997)

beat poet and outspoken homosexual. One of the major forces in the beatnik movement with Allen Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac. By expressing their distaste and distrust of American hyprocrisy and materialism, they made the hippie era possible. Burroughs is credited by many with introducing psychedelics into our culture, and also with coining the term heavy metal, which he used in The Naked Lunch.

Hi, Ayla! The band Yes?

I don't have a way to peg that term precisely to a year, but it must have been sometime in the first half of the '70s.

John Denver was an odd case, wasn't he, Dutch? His songs were too folky--played with acoustic guitar--and goody-goody, so he wasn't cool like the rockers. "Rocky Mountain High" in particular came in for much scorn from us kids who weren't high on just life.

Then he comes on The Tonight Show with his incessant grinning and "Far out"s, and he seemed like the Establishment's wishful idea of a hippie--sorta clean cut and positive thinking and, most of all, singing gentle music. Not our kind of hippie! John seemed like a phony sellout, with granny glasses and sorta long hair, but really too "straight," as we used to say! And "Far out" was already so worn out.

John was as unrealistic a media representation of the counterculture as those hippie pads on Dragnet.

William S Burroughs ... what a character! Being a fan of Beat literature I have read Junky and parts of Naked Lunch. To me, Burroughs always looked old - even in pictures taken from earlier in his life (don't know if this is because he was older than many of the other Beats he associated with or because of the drugs). He was a definite study in contrasts but to me led a sad life... raised in an upper-class family he became a junky drifter ... he was homosexual but entered a marriage partnership that produced children ... his marriage ended in tragedy when Burrough's attempted to shoot a glass off his wifes head while demonstrating his William Tell act for friends and shot and killed his wife ... his son battled a life-long addiction to alcohol that eventually killed him, something he partially blamed on abuse he suffered at hands of his father's 'friends' while visiting during William S's Tangiers exhile.

Musical interest note - Steely Dan took their name from William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch, which references a dildo by that name.

Here's a segment from Naked Lunch that I think provides a telling self-assessment by Burrough's (note - Lee is Burroughs alias in this book. Was also the alias he used when Junky was originally published).
quote:

Lee's face, his whole person, seemed at first glance completely anonymous. He looked like an FBI man, like anybody. But the absence of trappings, of anything remotely picturesque or baroque, distinguished and delineated Lee, so that seen twice you would not forget him. Sometimes his face looked blurred, then it would come suddenly into focus, etched sharp and naked by the flashbulb of urgency. An electric distinction poured out of him, impregnated his shabby clothes, his steel-rimmed glasses, his dirty gray felt hat. These objects could be recognized anywhere as belonging to Lee.

His face had the look of a superimposed photo, reflecting afractured spirit that could never love man or woman with complete wholeness. Yet he was driven by an intense need to make his love real, to change fact. Usually he selected someone who could not reciprocate, so that he was able-cautiously, like one who tests uncertain ice, though in this case the danger was not that the ice give way but that it might hold his weight-to shift the burden of not loving, of being unable to love, onto the partner.

The objects of his high-tension love felt compelled to declare neutrality, feeling themselves surrounded by a struggle of dark purposes, not in direct danger, only liable to be caught in the line of fire. Lee never came on with a kill-lover-and-self routine. Basically the loved one was always and forever an Outsider, a Bystander, an Audience.

Feb 6,2007```self-realization

finding yourself and being happy with what you find. Self-satisfaction. It has many more spiritual and cosmic descriptions, but this is a basic hippie definition.

self-realization

Look inside yourself, and if you dont see what you want,
Maybe sometimes then you dont,
But leave your mind alone and just get high.

............ KInda sums it up

Self-realization - the fulfillment of your capacities

In yoga, self-realization is knowledge of one's true self. The term "self-realization" is a translation of the Sanskrit expression atman jnana (knowledge of the self or atman). The reason the term "realization" is used instead of "knowledge" is that jnana (one's true knowledge or pure awareness) refers to knowledge based on experience, not mere intellectual knowledge.

Self realization is a goal of all types of Yoga but is reached through different paths and/or may occur on different levels for the various yoga disciplines.

oohhhmmmm

Feb 7,2007 Age of Aquarius

an astrological era of 2,000 years that is expected to start some time around A.D. 2060, though proponents of astrology have argued on dates ranging from 1904 to 2160. ALyrics of a song in the rock opera Hair stated, "This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius" The age is saidto be a time of decline of institutions and religions and the rebirth of enlightenment, self awareness and the brotherhood of man. Thought to herald the start of the New Age, which spawned the development of many hybrid EasterWestern spiritual practices and religions by Hippies.
