In vain have I searched for SEX CRACKS on YouTube. But there are plenty of other RG clips.

RIP Adam Purple

American eccentric Adam Purple died last week, at the age of 84. The NY Times says he collapsed on the walkway of the Williamsburg Bridge. We've previously noted some of his achievements here on WU. He's most famous as the "original hipster" and a "Guerrilla Gardener" who created a "Garden of Eden" on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

Some of his other life details, from the NY Times obit:

  • He used many aliases throughout his life, including Rev. Les Ego, John Peter Zenger 2nd, and General Zen of the Headquarters Intergalactic of Psychic Police of Uranus.
  • He produced hundreds of copies of a tiny book called “Zentences!” that was meant to encourage meditation.
  • He "renounced the internal combustion engine."
  • "Because of his abhorrence of waste, he salvaged and repurposed everything he could, including empty glass bottles, rusty nails and even buckets of lost tennis balls found on the street."

Flower People





Imagine the courage of that Rev, to actually speak with "members of the cult." He should have gone undercover, with a "hippy wig" makeover, as in the second video.

Hippie Wisdom from Donald Sutherland and Rod McKuen





Mad Men is over. But you can still savor that era with lots of videos such as these two.

Is that the actress's real voice?

Hippies Dig Coloring Books

I wish cartoonist Gill Fox were still alive, so I could ask him what constituted an "Establishment coloring book."

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

"Multi-instrumentalist" was the term for Rahsaan Roland Kirk. But generally the term does not refer to simultaneous playing.
