Exclusionary Hipsters Part Two. In this episode we explore how the "in crowd" looks to keep it an exclusive club. Maybe they're afraid we're gonna steal their hemp. Maybe they're afraid we're going to tell "Larry Law Officer" what they're up to. Mostly the young crowd, who should be full of joie de vivre and maybe some escargot. People who are so cool, they can no longer act with the innocence and joy of a child. Wow, I hope I too can achieve the lofty goal of being a stiff stick. Wrong. Nix. Error. In the modern day I belive this qualifies as a "fail". I meet a lot of hipsters with dreads and tie dyes and funky perfume around Asheville. Some are kind gentle folk, some just need to belong. Belong all you want, but rememeber to welcome one, welcome all. Was this not in the instruction manual ? Right next to Dr Leary's chapter on "set and setting" ? Seems the long hair thing should be an open club with no requirement for membership. Look out for your fellow man, put them at ease, inquire as to their welfare, give em a hand, and remember to laugh, live and love without being a soppy piece of pasta. Heavens to Betsy kids, don’t think enlightenment is for a chosen few. It aint. Its an equal opportunity bag, baby. Have a look here at my friend Ken Babbs, one of The Merry Pranksters. Not one to take himself too seriously. Don’t let Kens playful innocence and questionable trombone playing fool you. He was a Captain in The Marine Corps and flew helicopters in Vietnam. He also attended Stanford. Best of my knowledge he did not atend Julliard to study trombone.
