201108151222

This screenshot from the newspaper that decried Robert Crumb as a "sex pervert" and his art as "smutty" -- prompting the cancellation of his trip to the Graphic Festival in Sydney, Australia -- leaves us wondering when we can expect a similarly outraged, alarmist op-ed from author Jesse Phillips about the smutty, perverted news coverage of The Daily Telegraph.

"Pot and acid grew on lampposts!" he preaches. "Flowers stopped bullets! I pleasured Joni Mitchell with an Abba Zabba!"

I've been to twenty Phish concerts. I know what I'm talking about.

Not all hippies are bad. Some actually did some good, positive things for the world. They fought corruption and racial inequality, challenged conventional thoughts on war. But mostly, they went to music festivals.

"Hulk" director Ang Lee recently smashed some serious peace and love on all the puny humans with "Taking Woodstock," featuring deadpan icon Eugene Levy, quirky comedian Demetri Martin, and Sabretooth in a dress.
