Found on Craigslist: One Room in a Quirky House of Placenta Crafters in Phoenix

Categories: Found Art

​If you're on the market for a room in a historic hippie house in downtown Phoenix, light up a celebratory stick of incense.

The place of your dreams awaits on Craigslist -- or, more specifically, in neighborhood of Seventh and McKinley streets. And brother (or sister), this house is way loose. 

The room for rent in this 1923 gem has a small closet, a window, and three roommates who are self-described as a "birth & postpartum doula and placenta crafter," a "paradigm shifter," and a lover of "British culture, playing guitar, and reading biographies of heroin addicted 80s rockers" -- all for the low price of $350 per month. 

And while the three are all "open," "420 friendly," and make their own toothpaste, they do have a few, very specific rules. As a future member of the commune, you must:

1. "Love to cuddle (we are very affectionate and touchy feely in general)." 

2. "Like and would help with the gardens and the chickens." 

3. "Must not use chemicals (no traditional shampoos, hair products, toothpastes, etc.)" 

4. Be "conscious and aware" ... save during 420 activities, we assume. 

5. "Not [be] freaked out by nudity. None of us are and it's quite common for us to walk around naked, change out in the open, leave the bathroom door open while we're showering, etc." 

Groovy?

 Im about 100% sure the people at this hippie crash pad dont look like the old real hippie guy in the photo. how misleading can you get? you should have a picture of wally cleaver on there instead being as im sure thats what the guys who live there look like. the girls probaby look like  a cross between lady gaga or pink or something like that. or your average everyday office yuppie chick who answers office phones for her job.

I can't tell if the comments are sarcastic or not.  I want to ask what has them so bothered, but I think they may be baiting me.

The guys that live  here probably all have short hair and are clean cut and like American idol music and drink to much beer in Scottsdale sports bars. and the women say awesome all the time and have fake nails fake tits and get their hair done down at the hair salon and they also love American idol and drink to much wine in Scottsdale wine bars. its another boring drab wonder white bread personality society looking for itself. and you have to work and have a job to live here. everybody knows real hippies never work a square job. work is evil man!

I bet if an old real true hippie over 50 or 60 years old wanted to live here they would discriminate against his or her old age. I bet they like renters their own age. typical stuck up snotty yuppie city snobs. in the old days youngsters loved the old hippies and wanted to learn from them. but not now days. the peace love tolerance under standing and learning old age wisdom from the elders are a thing of the past with today's youth.

These punks are a bunch of plastic city yuppies playing pretend dress up hippie. what a joke.  they got more rules hang ups ego trips than most squares and straights do. real hippies dont believe in tv or electricty or running water. real hippies  use wells for water out house to take a crap and gas laterns for light fire wood for cooking on woodstoves and for heating the pad.

These are wanna be hippies mostly under 35 years old. real hippies the ones that are still alive at the youngest are all over 50 years old now. the old ones are in their 70s now.  these guys are kids of the real hippies and are living on a fantasy dream that has come and gone in its time to never return ever to mankind ever. the 1960s were a small place and time in human world time and it will never be like that again. it was a  short fast special moment in time. and that was that. we rode the wave like surfers for a few years then the wave gave out and washed up on the beach  with the hippie surfer and the wave and the hippie days the wave ride was gone never to return again. you had to be there to know what I mean. you cant recreated that time no matter how hard you try.

Hopefully they share the women sexually to like the good old days. if not they are not real hippies. I smell a poser as wearing patchouli oil home made tye dye  t shirts and listening the grateful dead was not even mentioned. most real hippies live near 4th ave in Tucson and Bisbee and Jerome AZ not yuppie Phoenix. the rest live in or near eugene oregon, northern california up state new york, colorado and hawaii. DIG?

Looking at the link, they have SEVERAL very specific rules. Which, if you have nearly everything in common with them, shouldn't be a problem.

  The love in  in Frisco California in 1965 in golden gate park polo fields was the real thing. plenty of free acid mescaline grateful dead tunes patchouli oil and outdoor sex on Indian blankets. thats how it was done back then. todays love in would make you fall asleep do to boredom and no talent bands.

 Will the fake 2012 hippie chicks be balling the dudes there like back in the 1960s hippie days?

 The Rock Blues Bands Furthur or the Allman Brothers Band would be a better choice. you should have been at the Daytona Beach Florida bandshell at the daytona beach boardwalk on the beach in 1970. that was a real party or peidmont park in hotlanta georgia 1971. or the atlanta 3 day pop fest 1971 in byron georgia outside of macon georgia. that was back when it was still real. today? forget about it.

 Dont forget the hippies living in the old original  communes in and near Taos New Mexico since  around 1964.

 Real hippies pretty much live in da woods away from society not the city. same thing as in the commune scene in the 1969 movie easy rider.

 Real hippies didnt believe in rules as they were true nonconformist. rules are for conformist thats how you know these are fake wannabee hippies 2012 not 1965 hippies like ken kesey and his merry pranksters or wavy gravy and the hog farm commune. I was one of hog farm commune members at woodstock ny in 1969 running the freak out tent for acid heads who were flipping out. we never were like these guys. we were free form outlaws of the hippie gypsy road life. read about my 1960s hogfarm days by  typeing in Tom Law to google.

 City punks like this dont like to get their hands dirty with real work like on milking a goat or any farm animals at all. chopping firewood is out of the question to. they probably dont even know hot to used a maul a peavy or a chainsaw or stack a cord of wood correctly or know how to prime the well pump or clean an out house. pretty much they are uslesss to society in the city or on a hippie country farm commune lifestyle. kids today are soft weak and dumb as shit. take away their computer cell phone facebook and their mind meds to keep the half sane and they will kill themselves from depression and loneliness.
