The OG's or the kids?
If the former, it would take some next-level craftsmanship to mimic the evident level of grunge, wear, and grizzled decrepitude.

Hell Owsley Stanley mad scientist, philosopher, and purveyor of some of the worlds finest acid to millions , belived humans should exist totally on a diet of meat and dairy. So anyway the vegan / hippie connection in my opinion is specious at best

That's funny because 99% of this stuff you rail about has its roots in the consciousness expansion movement of the 60s . Do you think it's a mere coincidence the computer and the Internet as we know it now were developed 30 mins drive from San Francisco. Agree with it or not it matters a lot more than you seem to realize. Even the idea of of not differentiating people from each other based on some preconceived notion was a basic tenant of this movement ." Do your own thing man " I don't know sounds pretty libertarian to me

Except, Don didn't have a problem with many various different hippie like folks. And that guy didn't go on to do anything important with his life...he went crazy and cut off his nipple...Don was right.

I'm not really sure how this relates to my post you quoted . I was simply commenting that the practice of lumping everyone who fits the description of a hippie type into a group that "don't matter" is to say the least questionable . I can't speak for the rest of the country but should anyone with that attitude have occasion to deal with the movers and shakers of silicone valley they would be well advised to abandon it
