Neo-Hippie

love laugh flower

I know, I know, first; what is a neo-Hippie? With my readings through time, I have not come upon a complete and legitimate
definition for a neo-Hippie, however, through the collective thoughts that I have stumbled upon, one would say a neo Hippie

Neo-Hippies call themselves hippies or modern hippies. They are kind hearted like the hippies of years past. They are called neo-hippies because their views are different in a few ways from the first hippies. They are against stereotypes and are their own people. They are usually not the ones to adhere to norms or a group think philosophy
hippies were. they have some common goals like peace and freedom. they are called neo for adding new beliefs like mindfulness and vegetarianism. Not all believe in all aspects of these ideologies but some do. They definitely believe in dressing their own way away from the norm. They are okay with gays, bi’s, lesbians, transsexual, and non-sexauls but that doesn’t make them one. Neo-hippie’s and hippies are so deep and vary between people you can’t really define them completely. Oh and FYI if you thought it, NOT ALL do drugs and don’t take showers.

Sooo onto My Top 6 Neo-Hippie Films

1. Marley
is the life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Bob Marley’s universal appeal, impact on music history and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled.

 

2.  The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011)
From 1967 to 1975, Swedish journalists documented the Black Power movement in America. This previously unseen footage show the people and culture that brought the movement to life and inspired change.

3. Frida

Hayek plays the Mexican surrealist painter Frida Kahlo, whose tempestuous life with her unfaithful husband,
muralist Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina), drives the story of Frida.

 

4.  Block Party (2005)

A mix of Dave Chappelle’s sketch comedy and musical interludes, the film follows Chappelle during the summer of 2004, up until September 18, 2004, when he threw a block party.

5.  Eve’s Bayou (1997)The story is set in 1962 Louisiana. The big Batiste family is headed by charming doctor Louis. Though he is married to beautiful Roz, he has a weakness for attractive women patients, which leads to the telling of a great story.

Lies start to roll…

6.Love Jones (1997)

A young black poet in Chicago who starts dating  a beautiful and talented photographer. While trying to figure out if they’ve got a “love thing”

As a terrible storm batter the beautiful island from which I was born, Jamaica the land of wood and water, memories of my early childhood awaken.  . I loved my travels to my friends house….that could only begin after I had bathed and tidle myself, my way of saying tidy ..(for those now scratching your heads). I would leave my grandmother’s house, walking down a woodsy path, praying that there were no wild dogs in sight. The walk wasn’t very long at all but felt like an eternity. I was getting close when I came to the bottom of the hill. Walking up the hill, mi smell di curry weh de pon di stove.  I knew that I was in for a good time. Every time that I went to my childhood friends home, there was always food cooking, music playing, and people coming round from all parts of the neighborhood. Before nights end, there would always be stories by the fire….my favorite; ANANCY. I loved it……He was very clever ? and always had me laughing. I have come across ANANCY stories on the web and would like to share one with you. Enjoy!!
Not sure if this is a real picture of ANANCY….but thought this little guy was cute.
