Hippies suck because they don’t do anything. They bemoan the evils of the world, but instead of solving anything, they just sit on their asses smoking pot and singing songs about “the children.”
Hippies suck because they don’t do anything. They bemoan the evils of the world, but instead of solving anything, they just sit on their asses smoking pot and singing songs. The only problem that smoking pot ever solved was the conundrum of how to make jam bands tolerable, and the the last time a song fixed anything was when John Lennon sung “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” and the Vietnam War came to a screeching halt within minutes. Hippies don’t do shit, and that’s why it’s so refreshing to see someone with good intentions actually do something.
Emily Richmond, a film student in LA, is traveling around the world and with a bunch of hippie motives, like “connecting” people, giving away eyeglasses and school supplies to third world nerds, and promoting renewable energy. Groovy shit aside, the most interesting part of her plan is that she wants to circumnavigate the globe in a boat, the S/V Bobbie, all by herself — 24,000 miles in 24 months and she’s going to blog it. Emily’s still prepping Bobbie for the journey so you haven’t missed anything yet. Watch it all go down BobbieRoundstheWorld.com.
