Lying in my plastic bed
thinkin how things were so cool to me
My baby likes to shoot pool
I like lying naked in my bedroom
Tying on the dinosaur tonight
it used to be so cool
Now I've got the needle
and I can shake but I can't breathe
Take it away and I want more and more

One day I'm gonna lose the war.

I think you are talking about the Rainbow Gathering. It's like a big gathering of people who practice alternative lifestyles who get together and pray for the world. They apparently get together in February in FL every year.

<a href="http://www.hippiechristian. org/gathering.html" target="_blank">http ://www.hippiechristian. org/gathering.html</a>

That's a website to explain it.
You can find all you need in your mind, if you take the time.

you're probably talking about the rainbow family of light. a group of nomadic people ... started sometime back in the sixties, i think. if you're interested, try to get to a rainbow gathering (there are dozens every year, all over the country). they're great fun, and you meet a whole lot of really interesting people.
If you don't like my fire, then don't come around. 'Cuz I'm gonna burn one down.

Sounds like a bunch of long haired freaks to me!
No I'm only kidding if I could I'd turn into one right now and wander all over Canada and Peru.
Oh yes that would be good.

I went to one maybe 8 years ago. It was awesome. 100000 hippies and other forms of fringe humanity in the woods. Lots of weed, shrooms, drum circles, good food, sex, a very chill atmosphere.

its really hard to explain gatherings, you really have to experience them....

first of all there are many, many 'gatherings' (or boogies) all over the country...personally ive been to ones in arizona, and some in georgia...from what i know the biggest boogies happen on or around the 4th of july...

basically boogies happen in forrests w/ lots of land and there are stages setup randomly throughout the entire forrest...start anywhere in the forrest, walk in any direction and you will walk into an amazing live show and small crowd huddled together....when you wake up, no matter what time it is, youll hear the drums of a live performance in the distance....nomad hippies (hippies that live going from boogie to boogie) start showing up with tents 2 weeks before the boogie, and artists (belly dancers, fire brethers etc ect) and musicians start playing about a week before the boogie, and go till a week after the boogies...then...ont o the next boogie...

at boogies, money is technically not allowed (when you enter they will accept donations for the porta-poties)...everything for trade...although in the last few years ive seen a few of the younger crowd just ignore that alcohol)/performances all free and it goes on for about 2 weeks....the people are all nice...they really live lives of peace love and freedom...and if youre looking to find drugs, its like the 'tucson gem and mineral show' for drugs...ive found exotic drugs i didnt think i would ever smoke people out and theyd throw rolls and acid and shrooms at me for free....

basically the people who started the 'gatherings' are all former hippies/diggers etc, who eventually went on, became professionals, made money and they all got together and bought land all over the country, in the middle of nowhere, and they turned them into resorts sometimes with rental properties on one side, but always with acres and acres and acres + trees and forrest...

these people are influential people, doctors, lawyers and on and on...and the police know what goes on and they cant do shit about it...its something to do with them not being able to get a search warrent because they need to be specific and theres no way in hell theyd find who their looking for fact the first time i went to the boogie my friends car broke down 10 miles from the boogie, and a cop picked us up and brought us to the edge of the property and said, 'out you get, im not allowed to go any further' joke

when you get to the boogie there are guards with a list...invite only...simply, if youre not on the list you cant go...youre either on the list, or you need to literally be brought by someone else who is a good friend of theirs....theres fences and really too much land to sneak on without going to an insane amount of trouble....

i was brought to my first boogie by my old dealer who had been going to the boogie since he was born (his entire family are boogie goers)....we setup our tent in between other tents and went to the the performances i would send out fully packed bowl out into the audience, and it comes back thing you know everyone is pulling out their weed sacks and just packing my bowls the whole night, then someone packs some hash, opium everyting...i really cant say enough about the performances, the music is diverse and the artists and musicians are of the highest caliber...all of them pretty much unheard of....

at the boogie, time doesnt exist...days really just blend into each other...everyone always says 'ill see you in 5 minutes'...even if theyre never gonna see you again theyll still say see you in five...they also say the boogie hasnt started yet it starts in 5 minutes...

old timer: so howd you like the boogie
me: oh i looooove the boogie
old timer: you do know the boogie hasnt started yet?
me: really??....when does it start??
old timer: starts in 5 minutes

id be trippping so id be like whoah dude...
i have never been straight given drugs on this magnitude before...if you are are a boogie virgin caught awake after 5am you automtically become one of the trash first time i helped cook and do dishes (while tripping on DOB) with another boogie virgin (on acid)....the pile of dishes were literally 5 ft high....good times...some photos of the 'blue ridge boogie' (25th aniversary)


main stage

another stage

'peaches and friends'

i got lost in the forest and ran into this

wow, great post baily! That actually makes me want to check that out sometime . Although being invite only it's gonna be hard to get a hold of somebody who knows connections about this place.
And so, Arthur, we learned that gambling is bad and yet in a certain sense, isn't life itself a gamble? You can never be sure of anything. Like who would have thought that dolphins could go bad and that fish were magnetic? Not me, no sir, not me.

I met some of those folks in the woods in norcal. Good folks, gifters but good conversation.

It has zero political or cultural value. It is reactionary in the worse sense: a gnarled wailing of a million broken losers joined in the comradery of hate and petty personal grievance.
