Hack #4


This week in class Dr.Putnam spoke about hippies and the movement they started. Towards the end of class he presented a video that portrayed a kind of space hippie in a Star Trek Episode. This reminded me of an episode of Futurama named Bendin’ in the wind, where the character Fry and gang take an old Volkswagen that was stereotypical of hippies of the time, to travel all across the country. Along the way their clothes became stained in a kind of tie dye that hippies were known to wear. While the episode did not deal with the hippie movement itself, the way the characters presented themselves in their tie dye and Volkswagen, and the concert at the end was an homage to the life of hippies themselves.
