I was in the Methodology short class yesterday and my lecturers Dr.Chan ask me about my hair.. Here is the conversation that i remember (it might not be the same but i did make it like that time) ;
Dr: What happen to you..You never shave??
Me: No la..I just wanna become something like…(i was thinking what the name of one culture)
Me: Ya Hippies..but just for a moment only..
(Conversation stop here as people settled down and class is starting.)
Anyway, why i put the intro there was actually i want to talk a bit about hippies and also myself. Am I a hippies now?
A brief introduction about hippies you can get it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippie..And here some text that i interested.
The Hippie subculture was originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the early 1960s and spread around the world. The word hippie derives from hipster, and was initially used to describe beatniks who had moved into San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. These people inherited the countercultural values of the Beat Generation, created their own communities, listened to psychedelic rock, embraced the sexual revolution, and used drugs such as cannabis and LSD to explore alternative states of consciousness.
Originated from US now it was well known all over the world. Nice move old hags (the founder are old now or…I’m bad, I’m really bad).
Anyway I was wondering Am I a Hippies? I got long Hair now (which I quite like it) and i just don’t feel like shaving my moustache and beard. This make me feel more like not me. Talk about my hair grow long and unshave moustache and beard is it something related to hippies? I still like to hear POP song and i really like “4 minutes” song by madonna and Justin Timberlake plus I’m far away from drugs.
What do you think? Does having a long hair with moustache and beard is a hippies? Maybe i don’t really understand the meaning of hippies but well it was a culture and I’m pulling myself out of it. Reading the brief introduction on hippies from Wikipedia makes me changed my mind..
So I gonna cut my hair soon. I’m not interested to become a Hippies. I remember there is a southpark movies titles “die Hippie die”. It was quite interesting where cartman become the anti-hippie. You must watch this only then you know what hippie really do in the world. Even there is some unlogic part but it was a nice series. You can watch it online here http://www.southparkzone.com/episodes/902/Die-Hippie-Die.html.
Enough about this hippie stuff.. Just wanna say I like my hair..Feel bad cutting it..
