“Stoned Hippie Ponders His Support for Occupy Wall Street”

There used to be a time when a person who worked full time, even at what was called a ‘Minimum Wage Job’, could live a life with dignity.

Just Sayin'...

You could afford not just the necessities of life…food, shelter, and clothing…(personally, I still think clothing is an option)…but you know, after the basics, they could still afford to invest some small amount of income in bettering themselves, or at least, enjoying themselves. You could afford to take a course, to go to a movie, you could save a few paychecks and buy a new bike, you could afford a bag of decent weed once in a while.

It’s not like that anymore.

People are living in their cars, or under bridges, and waking up and using the gas station washroom before they go to their ‘go-nowhere’ job at some greasy burger franchise. I’m excited about people taking it to the streets, with the spark of activism rekindled in such a diverse cross section of people. It feels great to sing along to Dylan’s ‘The Times They Are a Changing‘ again and really feel it, ya know?

Here’s a link to a video I made of the Occupy Vancouver event: Dance, Dance, Revolution!

-Once inside the Psychedelosizer, you’ll find a control bar at the bottom center of the screen. Click on the controls to move left, right, up, and all around the far-out and funky space.

-Once the Flashback Accelerator is launched, you will find a collection of thumbnail images, each framed with a different color.

Hippie Trip Ready for Launch!


Hey Hippie Trippin’ Brothers and Sisters! Welcome to ‘Tales From The Trip’! A blog about the way-out journeys of a psychedelic wanderer.

The Hippie Trip Mobile Peace Caravan!

For the past 18 months I have been busy creating the World’s first interactive hippie bus…and well, she’s ready and waitin’ for you to Tune In, Turn On and Go Greener! 

The Hippie Trip is a mobile ‘Hippie Pad’ tricked out to put some groove in your moves. Use the onboard controls to navigate the space and feel the good vibes as you ‘trip’ thru its Psychedelic 3D Environment! Designed to blow your mind, and inspired by those Brothers and Sisters who ‘Did Their Own Thing’ – the ‘Psyche-Delo-Sizer’ is a fully functioning Flashback Accelerator guaranteed to turn you on to Peace, Love, and Eternal Grooviness! Click on any image in the ‘Interactive 3D Trailer’ to discover the music, books, films, and even archival footage of the Counter-Culture! It’s a real gone trip, and I think you’ll dig it, so go ahead, do yourself a solid, and visit thehippietrip.com today!

I would like to send out a Far-out, Groovy, and Right On to all those folks who have been sending me such kind words on the launch of thehippietrip.com. Without your kind words, I probably would’ve fallen over in exhaustion after posting the site. It’s been a labour of peace and love, and along the way I have met a tremendous array of beautiful and loving people, and learned a plethora of ‘groovy and right-on’ new skills. For everything, I feel both blessed and grateful. 

Of course I would like my first post to include a list of the people who helped make this project happen:

J. Rowe, Eric Lundgren, Kelse Jacobsen, Janicka Grayson, C. Sutcliff, Heg Bulgwart, and Martin Hopkins.

Peace, light, and eternal grooviness to all!

Easy
