The Hippies Are Coming! The Hippies Are Coming!

Outside LandsThis weekend is Outside Lands which I happened to notice that when you look back on pictures and film of the Summer of Love in Golden Gate Park there isn’t much difference.

There are a few other things you’ll see that you didn’t have in the 60’s like, corporate sponsors and better food. Less Wild Giraffe Banana Wine and more micro brews. Less granola, more artisan food. If the Hippie Movement were today it would probably look a lot like Outside Lands. Seriously, look at the picture. That’s from Outside Lands, not the Summer of Love.

I’m not sure if they realize it, but Outside Lands is just a modern day version of the Summer of Love, just compacted into a single weekend along with lots more people compacted into a single space. If you look at the people of Outside Lands you’ll see the following:

  1. People wearing tie dye
  2. Lots of pot
  3. People dressing not in tie dye, but just as equally outrageous
  4. Lots of pot
  5. Scantily clad & nekkid people
  6. Lots of pot
  7. The Grateful Dead Dance [you’ll know it when you see it]
  8. Lots of pot
  9. Flowers in their hair
  10. Lots of pot
  11. Mud

I wonder if Sir Paul McCartney will be having a bit of a flashback when he performs at Outside Lands this weekend. It definitely be a groovy time for all who are there to experience the happening. For those few who aren’t going to do be advised that it is going to be crowded and getting to the other side of the park is going to be difficult. If you have time you might want to find some of the close by convenience stores to help you stock up for the weekend. It’s nice to have a good supply of munchables and drinks to hold you out through the day and keep you from spending top dollar too often at the concert.

Luckily Muni will have more buses [which may or may not help] and there is rumor of free cab rides to and from the concert. If you’ve got a smart phone you might want to download the Sidecar or Lyft app. Something tells me that cabs will be in short supply, but to safe you some money if you use Sidecar and haven’t used it before download the app and use the promo code essentiallyeric to get $10 credit to help you out on your trip.

Me? I can walk out my door and hear the entire concert without paying a dime, but I’ll most likely be driving around helping people get to and from the show. Have fun, be good and don’t take the brown acid.

Pot Smoking Rednecks that want to see Michaela Alioto-Pier naked

I know, I know. You’re scratching your head over that one. What could this  article be about. What does this have to do with San Francisco aside from mentioning a former Supervisor.

It’s about my stats program. I love my stats program. It tells me a lot about the people that read my blog.

Most of them come from sfgate.com where I regularly comment. It tells me that the majority of my readers are from the San Francisco Bay Area which makes sense and that most of them are PC users, though the iPhone has the largest amount of mobile users.

The best part is that it tells me what search words they’ve used to find me. First on the list:

Marijuana

Second on the list:

Redneck

Third on the list:

Michaela Alioto-Pier+naked

Ya’ll are a real high brow crowd now aren’t you? I’ve written many things, but I’ve never been called a writer. I’ve sung many songs, but I’ve never been called a singer. I write one article on Marijuana as the New Commodity and I start attracting all the pot smoking redneck’s who want to see Michaela Alioto-Pier nekkid. Well I guess you can’t always get the real truth out of statistics. After all even Mark Twain even said there are three types of lies: Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics. I even noticed someone found my site by using the search terms HOT+SISTER+SEX. OK, that one kind of creeped me out and I don’t even have a sister, but I’m just saying.

So even if that isn’t the majority of my readers I decided to dedicate today’s story to you with the picture I’ve included. I hope you enjoy it. Ya’ll come back now, y’here!
