I’m sure at one point in time, hippies once stood for something. But none of that really matters now because the new wave of faux-hippies has completely trampled out any past achievements and set the whole movement back at least four-hundred years.

Your modern day hippie is a white, middle-to-upper-middle class 20-year old college student. He (or she) will drive a hybrid or some other “green” car that they own because their yippie parents bought it for them.

He will live in your local coffee/tea café and go on and on about western or eastern philosophy, depending on his personal bent, until blood shoots out of your ears. When he runs out of pretentious, grandiose questions to pose, he will proceed to make Noam Chomsky look like Rush Limbaugh with his political rhetoric.

He will probably hang out with homeless people to earn “street cred,” not realizing that these same people want nothing more than this hippie to have a seizure from too much LSD so they can make off with a wallet full of cash.

Words such as “word,” “chill,” and “dank” will be used. These three words will most likely even be used in the same sentence to describe Phish to someone. He will treat the police like shit because the police are “the man” and more importantly, “the man who stole my drugs.”

What a shame that all of these free spirits will one day be shackled down with corporate jobs, wearing tailored suits, (and Jerry Garcia ties) telling their uninterested kids how awesome they once were.
Hippies: "We should do as Buddha taught and shed our worldly possessions."

Normal Guy: "Okay. Get rid of your North Face jackets."

Hippies: "..."

A great singer/songwriter who later converted to Islam. Our ignorant administration then assumed if he was Islamic he had to be a terrorist. He's now banned from the U.S. but still making music.
"did you hear that cat stevens is a terrorist?"

An amazing alternative rock band that recently got back together and is currently in the studio working on a new album!
After listening to "Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness," I had reached the conclusion that The Smashing Pumpkins are one of the best rock bands in history.

A beautiful bore, people stereotype Vermont as being all hippies but it is truly a mix of all social classes. In Burlington, you will see hippies, but you will also see a fair share of bros and Orvis catalog douche bags who just got done kayaking. Winooski has the white guys who wish they were black (see wigger), complete with baggy t-shirts, fake gold necklaces, and dirt staches. Then, in the backwoods of Vermont, you'll encounter hicks who manage to blend Canadian accents with Redneck drawl, yet slurring their speech like a rapper. Oh also, there are normal people who hate these other idiots more than people who live on the outside looking in.

A film school in Chicago, Columbia COLLEGE is a much different beast than Columbia UNIVERSITY. People who don't make the distinction run the risk of expectations falling flat when the difference comes to be known.

While not a prestigious college, Columbia College is still the largest art/film school in the country and is synonymous with such names as Kanye West, Andy Dick, and Pat Sajack.

The attendance in past years has skyrocketed with GPAs ranging from 1.0-4.0, which can at times be discouraging. Just know that if you're an intellectual attending the school, you aren't alone and you will notice that the idiots mostly drop off after freshman year. Those who are serious generally succeed.
Guy 1: "I can't believe how stupid these kids are in my class at Columbia College."

Guy 2: "Yeah... but you have to admit, it's a nice view of Lake Michigan."
