The Jaded Review’s Guide to Hippie Watching in North America
Life here on the Left Coast necessitates an understanding of the hippie culture that prevails in the forests, beaches and deserts, otherwise you might find yourself in the midst of a circle of chanting humans, confused, naked and on drugs.
Created by Phidelity who lives in the West Coast hippie hinterlands of Oregon, The Jaded Review’s Guide to Hippie Watching in North America can help you to spot hippies in the wild and learn to identify the multiple breeds, preferred environments and unusual behavior.
Although hippies are rarely dangerous, their peculiar habits and worldviews can be a shock to those who were not raised on the mantra: “What’s yours is mine, and what’s mine is……well I don’t really HAVE anything right now but I’ll be sure to hook you up hella when I do.”

- What to do when you are hugged by a hippie
- When encountering a ‘Feather Hat,’ is it better to offer him a compliment on his handmade clothing or sculpted facial hair? Or will attention of any type work?
