The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius (Almost)



Because of the precession of the equinoxes, the vernal equinox moves through all the constellations of the Zodiac over the 26,000 year precession period. Presently the vernal equinox is in the constellation Pisces and is slowly approaching Aquarius.
This is the origin of the "Age of Aquarius" celebrated in the musical Hair: a period when according to astrological mysticism and related hokum there will be unusual harmony and understanding in the world. We could certainly use a dose of harmony and understanding in this old world; unfortunately, it is unlikely to come because of something as irrelevant as the position of the vernal equinox with respect to the constellations of the Zodiac.

(from the play/movie Hair...)

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!

Astrology (and most of the New Age blather) was never one of my favorite things about the hippies.

Anybody ever see Rainbow Bridge, which eventually featured the Jimi Hendrix Experience playing in a Hawaiian volcano crater or something? Man, there was some execrable hippy-dippy (or drugged-out) "dialogue" coming from the hippies, including Jimi, throughout that movie.

I remember it Peter ... got it on VHS somewheres around here. Jimi's
rap rambled on quite a bit. Here is a loose paraphrase that for some reason
has always been stuck in my mind:
"Imagine the Earth is a waterhole.... and all the peoples of the Earth
are the wildebeests that come to drink at the waterhole......"
Then he finally hit the stage playing a Flying V ... awesome intro he
does to "Hear My Train A'Coming"

Boob
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boob can refer to:

* A woman's breast
* A fool or idiot
* Booby, part of the family Sulidae, a group of seabirds closely related to gannets

The phrase boob tube has two meanings:

* In Australian, British, South African, and Canadian English, a boob tube is a type of woman's top
* In American and Canadian slang, a boob tube is a television set; normally negative or humorous, this usage comes from the words boob (a foolish person) and tube (from the television's cathode ray tube)

Feb 9,2007 Meat Hooks

hands. Used prior to the hippie era, but expanded during the 60's and 70's. Refers to either hands as hooks made of meat or hands as hooks that grab things like meat. I believe it is most likely the former.

Feb 10/11, 2007.. Quant, Mary (1934-)

British fashion designer responsible for the mod look, the minismirt, hot pants and body stockings. She opened her clothing boutique, Bazaar, in London in 1955. In response to the rebelious tastes of youth culture, she began designing modern, new styles influenced by pop art and op art. Soon, her shop was the place to buy clothing for all the mods and rock and roll stars.

1971 - 1972

I was a freshman in highschool and got sent home for wearing hot pants & platform shoes.
I knew that I would get in trouble for wearing it, but I was always wanting to buck the system.
If first thing in the morning my name wasn't called over the PA to report to the principal's office, it would be amazing. To this day when I run into people from school, that's the first thing they say, "Your name was called everyday" I believe I hold the record

After moving back to Des Moines from Chicago I took a job as a cocktail waitress in a place called the Purple Jester and our 'costume' involved fishnets, hot pants, and some little vest thing. The lounge was tied to a hotel so there were plenty of transient business men passing through and it was pretty demeaning attempting to deal with some of these guy (see prior word of day 'meat hooks'). Alls I know is that someone ended up wearing a drink neatly divided between their face and lap and those hot pants got tossed after that (but I was allowed to keep my job) .
