Just out of curiosity. What was up with you when you wrote this? And whatever happened to "HIPPIEHAVEN"?

Subject: HIPPIE3 : R.I.P.


-- i've been thinking for some time now that 'hippie3' had finished his work
here & it was time to move on...

i love helping you friends but i have a life to live off-line...

i've tried to wean my self off this damn ng addiction but seem drawn like a
fly to honey...

and i've drawn far too much attention to myself for far too long.

so i'm retiring 'hippie3':

i've changed all the passwords, closed the email, and am mere moments away
from deleting this user altogether and closing my ISP account.

times are changing my friends, there's a cold wind blowing.
cover your asses, friends.

peace & love
hip

p.s. the 'haven is still up but is in password hell: it will not be updated.

Check out HIPPIEHAVEN http://www.geocities...ach/Marina/7382

hell, i don't really remember
proly a bout of paranoia
lol
the 'haven was up many years
but geocities finally took it down
a year ago or so...
it was my first website
built entirely on webtv no less
had links to many sites of interest,
fairly large as sites go,
got alot of hits, too.

i have many dogs & cats,
love animals of all kind,
the fuzzier
the better

Have you spoken to or heard from Ryche Hawk since the "bad old days"?

I know you and "MAD" Max seem to have patched things up. LOL! He seems to be on Mike'O like a fly on shit when he posts his, "I hate Hippie3 rants" on ADM.

It seems you are very well respected there now, even "old" enemys see Mike as a lunitic.

certainly,
ryche now supplies a $10 off next order coupon
for all my customers at www.mycrotopia.com
we learned, gradually, to respect each other
and understand that we were not real enemies.
this same process has occured over and over
in my career here,
at least with those
who were open to reason.
we clashed at first,
as strong-willed intelligent people
are wont to do,
but then we moved past that
to better things.

yeah, me too.
back then i still had a basement full of weed
and an attic full of shrooms
so i was pretty easily upset.
i remember about three different episodes when i got so paranoid that i pulled a 'roo',
so to speak.
but i have no sense of shame in that,
better safe than sorry eh ?
at least folks can see
that i'm for real,
with the same worries that they have.
i peek out the windows late at night,
looking to see if johnny law is sneaking up on me.
i'll admit it.
and snitches like gerald hanafin
make my ulcer burn and bleed.
glad i'm retired now.
but i wish i had some shrooms...

btw,
i actually DID finally manage to beat my addiction to ADM/usenet
haven't posted there in years,
you might in fact have even
found my actual retirement post quoted above,
not entirely sure but that's around the time
that i quit posting on usenet so may be.
i moved onto more private message boards like this one instead.

Who needs shrooms when you got Ayahuasca? :-)

I find this thread a bit creepy now. It feels like you think you are going to kick the bucket any second and want to set the record straight before you go, like your last will and testament. I hope I'm wrong.

"i remember about three different episodes when i got so paranoid that i pulled a 'roo', "

LOL! My biggest worry is someone stealing "roo" and posting here and elsewhere. When I am unable to keep up with the board, I delete my account.

I know about having a housefull of "evidence". In reality I only started realy posing on the net after I had "cleaned my house" so to speak. I know what it is to be sitting on a time bomb. I do not know how I survived the old days...

Paranoia can be a good thing. So far I am alive and well. Being this deep into the underground, even in the relm of information, can make one paranoid.

For me at least, my paranoia stems from what I am in reality verses here. I have always kept a tight lid on my exploits. I have always kept this life a huge secret. I think this "conflict" is quite common here. Far be it for me to confess my "sins", but if people only knew what I did in my spare time and how long I have done it. LOL! I have seen a few people poke their heads above ground and get them chopped off.. I am very much content with knowing I have seen and experianced things very few people get the chance to see. It is certainly less risky to give people the key, rather than unlock and open the door for them.

There was a time when very few people know how to grow the shroom. It was high science. There is no reason to grow large amounts of them. There is no market for them. Now people can do this in secret. They just have a few boxes in the closet. I have seen some very amazing stats on just how many people grow shrooms in this country. I do not remember the exact number but it was in the millions. I have spoken to many groups of people, from a "respectable" position, and I have come to the conclusion that this stst is correct.

This is why MANY people look up to you Hippie. There was a time not so long ago when one realy had to be in the know to trip. Now they just grow their own. From my experiance these people represent a braod spectrum of society. Truck drives, factory workers, writers, artists, IT's, doctors etc.

Hippie, do you ever just sit back and realize that you have had a large role in starting a movement? LOL! Ott, the preverbial psychonaut, has brought up this site and you by name. I have seen links to this site all over the underground. I have heard this site mentioned at lectures on shamanism.

Many people thank you for your hard work. You seem to have the impression that people still see you the way they did on ADM. This is not the case. In reality you have actualy helped the community gain some much needed respectability. Mycotopia has most certainly grown into a haunt for mature trippers.

"Who needs shrooms when you got Ayahuasca?"

Very true. For me at least I have found my entheogen. LOL! I still like the insanity of a good shroom trip a few times a year... 10 grams and me running around the woods at 3 am, naked. Pure paradise! Posted Image

a valid concern,
had it done to myself once
back at drooldonkey.org
crazy old ben dover/karl brooks
did me great damage by
posting under my nym
a couple weeks
before i caught him and exposed his treachery.
wise to be cautious.

pretty damn cool eh ?
yeah, i take pride in what i've done,
it's really my life's work.
wanna know what really
trips me out ?
seeing some webpage in russia or israel or sweden
where the only word i recognize
is 'hippie3'.
my invitro tek reverberated
around the world,
fundamentally changing the equation
for many to enable them to get some shrooms
of their own.
i do feel humbled to think that
little ol' me
has actually changed the world a little,
hopefully for the better.

<!-/quote-!><hr size=0></blockquote> Humbling as I expect it would be... Not everyone can say that they've had an affect on thousands or more people all the way around the world. Life's work or no, it's a very high achievement to have made. I only hope I too can make as big a difference in some aspect of life by the time the end comes... You should be grateful and proud that you've not only achieved this but have seen its affects while you're still here to enjoy it. Congratulations, for what’s its worth.

I disagree. we all have these effects on thousands everyday... Consciousness is contagious.

The difference (and very humbling part) is that hippie can actually SEE That difference being made with a precipitation of acknowledgement back to the source.

But I see the point of that (and this) to empower others to help us all realize WE ARE MAKING THAT DIFFERENCE RIGHT NOW. The flip side is that is true of all our actions, good AND bad. stay conscious! stay positive! stay here and now! BE the difference!

First of all, just let me say that mycotopia has really opened my eyes to what a "perfect" web board can really be. I have frequented automotive web boards (and some other hobbies), for years, and I have NEVER found one like this. If anything, you mostly find aggression, disorganization, and negative undertones. Mycotopia is a plethora of information on topics that are very controversial, yet the members are in it for the community more than the content of the site. That right there is rare.

my question How many hours would you estimate that you spend on mycotopia a week?


I have never seen someone so responsive to what seems like EVERY thread on this site.
