Greetings my beloved hippyfans and fuckers alike!
As promised, I’m relaunching myself online! The new site is 99% completed and we’ve only got a couple of minor tweaks to take care of, but I’m ready for you to have a look!
As hippyfans that have stuck with me over the years, I’d like you to be the first visitors to my brand new site! How fucking lucky are you?
Get ready to bookmark…
Or you could grab one of my many syndication feeds, which are available on the main page. I’ve got many flavours including RSS, so you don’t have to come to the hippy, you can make the hippy come to you!
Of course, every new beginning also means an ending and my blogspot blog is coming to a close with this very entry. Thank you Blogger, for giving me a home for so long, but I’m all grown up now and fleeing your nest!
So what can you expect from my new website?
It’s the same old hippy goodness you’ve come to love and maybe lust after a little bit, but in a shinier, flashier, new wrapper! My new site is slick, professional and worthy of your valuable surfing time.
My entire archive, all 414 original hippy posts are now on the new site too, so you don’t have any need to come back to this one, ever again!
So what are you waiting for! I don’t need to be telling you about it, you can see for yourself….
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you dig my new site as much as I do!
Cheers from the hippy!

I’m sorry I’m always apologising for my recent lack of participation and interest, but weird this phase of the hippy will be coming to a close soon enough.
Because in the not too distant future, I’ll be re-launching this blog in a very big way!
I’ve contracted a team of crack web designers to completely overhaul my site. Expect all the regular hippy goodness you’ve become accustom to, perhaps even addicted to, but in a slicker, shinier package!
Besides the redesign, I’m going to be adding some very special features as well as changing the way I blog. It’s all fucking exciting!
Can you feel it? Can you? CAN YOU? Fuckers!
I’d like to kindly ask all of my loyal hippyfans to please bear with me during this transitional phase. My appearances here will continue to be occasional until the new blog launches, hopefully in the next month or so, but no promises!
While I’m here, I’ll share a couple of newsworthy notes.
The Independent newspaper is reporting that recreational use of nitrous oxide is on the increase here in the UK, and you can read their story RIGHT HERE.
I’ve actually got a mate who goes to clubs and punts balloons full of N20 and is making a decent profit from it.
Back in the 80s, I used to get canisters of it. They were the little ones used in whipped cream makers, which you can still get today. Check out THIS WEBSITE, which is mentioned in the Indy article.
I just might need to order some myself! Though they only take PayPal, so I might reconsider since I don’t have an account.
The other story I want to call your attention to is from SKY NEWS and quite handily I can actually provide you with THIS LINK to the actual tv report.
It seems the UK’s most conservative broadcaster is trying to piss all over my party. Just like they did with my beloved and now dearly departed shrooms!
Well, fuck ‘em! If they take the current herbal highs away, some clever clogs will come up with the next generation! It’s big business here in the UK, something like £10 million per year. That sort of dosh is serious and it’s a market they won’t let go of easily!
And yes, I subscribe to SKY, I adore my SKY+ and I’m not too bothered by their politics! I just like good television and the SKY digital platform is the best one available here in the UK. I apologise for nothing!
Anyway fuckers, thanks for dropping by. As you can see, I am still living that hippy life, so you don’t need to!
And when I re-launch my blog, look out, I won’t be the biggest internet celebrity you’ve never heard of for much longer!

I know I'm supposed to be re-committed to this blog and all that, but my time continues to be limited. I've got too much to do and never enough time to do it!
But I haven't forgotten you all, oh no! I'm still livin' that hippy life so you don't need to!
But here's the really big fucking news....
I'm going to officially relaunch this blog, ideally next month!
I've hired a crack team of webdesigners to work on my new site.
Ok, by team I actually mean my younger brother and I haven't hired him so much as asked him to do it as a favour for me.
But still, I'm going to relaunch. The hippy is going to be a proper, fully functional website, just like your mother used to make!
It's gonna be all kinds of good!
It's going to be the best website in the history of the internet, ever!
Well, maybe not, but it will be chock full of my special brand of drivel!
I promise it that all your northlondonhippy dreams will come true on this one page!
Are you feeling me? Are you? ARE YOU?
It's about time I re-asserted myself here on the world wide thingy-ma-bob!
I've got opinions, dammit and they're worth sharing! I count, I matter, I'm important, if only to myself!
You thought you knew this hippy, well fuckers, you ain't seen nothing yet!
As soon as the new site is flying the hippyflag high I'll post all the details you need to know to dig on your own home computer. Ain't technology grand!
Until the big relaunch, you'll still get the occasional visit here from me, but when that new site is up, look out, I'll be pestering you all as much as you can take it!
So if you're a long time hippyfan or brand new to all things hippy, strap yourself in, it's gonna be the ride of your goddamn life! Fuckers!

I mean me, of course.
Why am I the one true genius of the 21st century?
Simple, because I know that I don’t know everything and I never will. That makes me smarter than your parents; I bet they’re real know-it-alls! They don’t know dick!
Neither do I, but I’m honest about it. So take that, fuckers!
I’m just filling time, in my night, on this blog and in my life. My life remains in a holding pattern, I’m still circling the airport and when I’ll touchdown is anyone’s guess.
Remember I went on and on that 2005 was the year of the hippy? I lied, but I’m coming clean now.
I really thought 2005 was going to be my year. All the signs were there, it was looking good. So where did I go wrong?
If I had the answer to that one, my fine feathered fuckers, I’d be in a position not to repeat my mistakes. We’re all doomed to repeating our mistakes eternally!
But this hippy’s persistent and it takes more than a bad year (decade? lifetime??) to discourage me! That’s why I decided this blog will live on! I’m still formulating a big re-launch though and as soon as I know what form that will take, I’ll let all my hippyfans know!
The podcast idea didn’t really work out, but hey, maybe I should give it another try. Half my problem was I recorded it with a PC's shitty internal microphone, which did my novelty hippy-voice no favours. Perhaps I’ll try again with my better kit.
But will that make a difference? Fuck knows. Maybe I’m just rubbish?
Bullfuckingshit! I’m anything but rubbish! I’m a future god to all!
If only! I should be your god (not that old shit again), because I’d be a great god! I already know what you’re thinking….that hippycock is very suckable!
In your dreams!
I’ve logged in and blogged on with no set agenda. This is just me saying, “hey fuckers, I’m still alive!” Wanna feel my pulse?
I’m still hoping for a breakthrough this year and I’ve got a couple of things planned that might actually take off.
The problem with being a media whore like myself is greed. I’m paid well when I work, I’m paid diddly when I don’t. I need to work less, so I can work more, on the projects that matter to me. Earn less now for a bigger payday at some point in the future!
Isn't that kind of how christianity works? Live the honourable life now for rewards in the afterlife? I hope I don't have to wait until I'm gone to be confirmed as the one true genius of the 21st century. That would suck!
I’m actually, really, truly working on scripts for a tv series. Shhhhhh, don’t tell anyone. I know it’s a winner, but I need to convince someone with some serious cash to fund it. The only way that’s going to happen is if I get the scripts to a point where I can show them to people.
But mark my words, if someone does fund this one, I can promise you, you will hear about it. It will be popular and more importantly, it will make me lots of money. You’ll buy the DVD box set, won’t you?
I’m going to be 43 cunting years old this month. My birthday’s soon and I’m dreading it. Aside from the fact that it’s the last year of my “early forties”, it’s just another reminder of little I’ve actually accomplished with my life.
That’s not totally fair, for if you met me, you’d think I was somewhat happening. Just not enough for me to feel good about myself.
What am I talking about, I never feel good about myself, unless I’m unconscious or something equally fun. You have no concept of the depths of my personal self-loathing. You’d need sonar to hit that particular rock bottom!
What can I say? I’m a dreamer whose dreams refuse to die! Sure, my dreams may have a spluttering cough, but it’s not a death rattle, there’s still plenty of life left in them!
My problems have always been simple. I’ve got a decided lack of fortitude; I rarely stick to anything. And when I do, another of my shortcomings comes into play, namely my giant fear of rejection.
That’s a shitty combo, especially if you want to write books and screenplays and make films! There’s always someone who will work harder and longer for less money!
But like I said, my dreams are alive. Over the years I’ve honed my skills as a dramatist and author. I’m shit hot really, I just need the rest of world to dig what I do and that means putting something out there!
I’ve taken some baby-steps in that direction recently, but nothing significant. That’s going to change very soon; I’m setting my sights high and my phasers on fry. I’m taking no fucking prisoners!
I didn’t expect to come online and give myself a peptalk, but that’s what this is turning into. My bullshit’s so convincing, I’m even buying it myself!
Whether something good happens for me or not this year, I can promise you this: In less than 50 years, I’ll be dust. Somehow, knowing that makes success or failure matter that much less.
I never said I was sane, just like I never promised you a rose garden!
I beg your pardon?

I'm still the hippy you all love and maybe lust after just a little bit! I am still the biggest internet celebrity you've never heard of...and I stopped being shroomtastic nearly 6 months go! So fucking what?
So I'm still here to entertain, amuse and inform, that's fucking what!
I'm no closer to a final decision on the fate of this blog. Well that's not completely true, I think I've abandoned the idea of a podcast. I tried to do a pilot and it was a piece of shit. I'm easily discouraged, hey ho!
The fact is that I've gotta do something to re-ignite my spark. Anyone got any new drugs? That usually works!
I've pretty much been sticking to spliff lately and nothing more. How dull.
Don't worry, I'll figure out what to do next soon enough.
In the meantime, happy fucking new year! I'm back, I'll be posting again. I'm on the lookout for more drugs.
What more could you devoted hippyfans need?
