Eugene, Oregon- where hippies run rampant, and the Dead still reign supreme. This city has got to be the most hippie filled place I have ever encountered. For those of you not familiar with this lifestyle, let me point out a few traits of a hippie. - Prefers to ride the bike over using any petrol (it hurts the environment, man) - Never washes or cuts hair, resulting in "dreads". - Eats organic foods almost exculsively. - Smokes herb wherever they please- (cops really don't care up here) - Drink the CHEAPEST beer that they can't afford (PBR, Natty Ice.. etc) - During a jam, asks if you can play any "dead". - Still supports either no one, or John Kerry. - Roll their own ciggies. I am from the LA area of California, and to be quite frank; I feel like Eugene is a different country on a different planet. Thoughts?
