    Chow 97:: Hippie Joe

    Chow 97:: Hippie Joe

    ROUND #97

    HIPPIE JOE
    -------------
    Primary Character
    Across the field from Farmer Thickets' Crop Circle farm is the local recycle, run by a friend of Thicket's, Hippie Joe. Nam vet (he was a corpsman), and ex-emergency room doctor in the inner city, Joe lives a quiet life recycling the local recyclables and pontificating upon the world's woes.
    A little more than slightly reactionary, he is now the local peace activist, animal rights activist, aniti-war activist, Global Warming activist, Pro-Choice activist, and, just activist in general. Anal about what goes where in recycling (plastics are *never* mixed with glass, which is also, by the way separated into brown, green, and clear) cardboard goes over behind the dumpster but aluminum can go *in* so long as it's not tinfoil. All recyclables must be washed clean of food products.
    And he's strict vegetarian. Eggs are okay, because they're "cackleberries."
    Long reddish brown hair, tie dye shirt, torn jeans and a Jesus beard with beads, he's Hippie Joe.

    In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday evening my time (GMT - 8 ) yet I'll have a look at the last entries.

    Sounds weird, too. The perfect neighbor for Thicket. One question though. I doubt the deadline in November 11 or did I miss thomething? Might it be Nov 18, or 19?

    I'm sorry 'bout the stupid question, but what's a "tie die shirt"?

    No, you're correct - deadline is the 18th, and the shirt is tie dye - sorry about that. I should know better than to try to pull these things together when I'm dead on my feet.

    *ANY* variation on this type of shirt: http://www.tiedyes.com/teeshirtimage...ie-dye-tee.jpg

    Cheers,

    corpsman seems to be the military term for a medic (military too) or an ambulance man.

    Essentially correct. A Corpsman is a Navy Medic. The USMC uses the Navy's medics because they don't have medics of their own, so it is not uncommon for a Navy medic to see ground combat.

    Hmm. not sure how much concepting there is to be done on this one. The description is pretty tight and stereotypical. Bit like that Farmer one. A more lose brief may have been more inspiring.

    More inspiring, maybe. But I see these topics as a very good exercise in doing something a client might want you to do, which is not essentially the same as you would want to do reading only a brief title.
    I think it's actually a very good exercise that we have to nail down an already described haracter instead of creating our own. (which is also a lot of fun, of course)
