Gone to Texas - Again

I'm dashing out the door to the airport in a minute
Taking all the paperwork with me that I meant to do over the last month
and Didn't
Like my taxes.

The instant I get there, I promised Joe over at Worldwide Hippies that I'd write something about GE, your friendly, neighborhood weapons manufacturer, and their nuclear reactor in Japan.  I'm learning how to Follow the Money because I'm going to be a reporter for Worldwide Hippies News & Stuff which comes out on Mondays.  Joe, the Hardest working Hippie on the Internet, has been producing these 8 - 10 minute gems all by himself for months.  All the writing, editing, filming (such as it is) animated clips, green screens, backgrounds, chyrons . . . the whole magilla.

It's a Labor of Love, and I volunteered to help.  I'm excited and one of my best buddies from High School, who was an RTF guy back in the day, is going to give me some pointers.  If you're of a certain age, you know just what RTF is.  That may be one of the ways we can tell Old Hippies from Neo-Hippies, although Joe would say that a hippie is a hippie.  Woody, on the other hand, likes those kind of distinctions and he's as big of an Old Hippie as Joe. Maybe we need Hippie Elders.

I don't know.  Next time I'm high and pondering, I'll ponder on that.  G*d knows I don't like being called an Old Hippie, but I suspect I qualify.

Joe also needed a Social Media Captain, so I've taken on that role too.  Find me on Twitter at

I like to think of these developments as a Joint Venture between Menopausal Stoners and Worldwide Hippies which is giving me an opportunity to explore the concept of T&A, or Tits & Activism.  I've wondered about Tits and the Progressive Agenda before over at Black Magpie Theory, and about Tits and The Patriarchy (Stonerdate 08.04.2009).

Time to put all that wondering to good use.

GTT. All right, then.

Carry on.

PENolan said...

Muffy, I imagine he is . . . but it's still great to be here.

@Courtney - Good - that's the idea.
@Libs - I could have sworn I just saw music from you circulating the other night. But I found you and sent a follow request.
I don't really love twitter, but it's good for building a network for The Resistance. Good for quick, alternative news too.
@Gail - I still want to get up to CT soon. Glad the springtime is a week or two behind here. The Azaleas are magnificent
@Jennifer - I hope to!

@Granny - absolutely. I've got your number handy. Still looking at Thursday, but not 100% sure yet. Will call or FB as soon as I know

Any hippie is a good hippie :-)

I look forward to your reporting, and also on life in Texas.

Jaliya said...

You are an angel in so many ways ...
I don't know what an 'RTF guy' is, so I guess I'm a neo-hippie ...

So glad you have new outlets for your amazing voice and writing!

You're in Texas again ... and are you meeting up with Yellowdog Grannie?!!?!??! Oh, my, what a party that'll be ...

Hug each other for me!

xoxo
