Flicks: The Love-Ins (1967)


Like WOW, Dad - it's ... so crazy significant, see?

In the late 1960's, manlings eradicated a subspecies of human called "hippies". Hippies were terminated due to their lack of hygiene, poor grammar and an all-around no-goodnik general attitude. These strange creatures erroneously believed that flowers had the power to stop bullets - probably due to being hepped up on goofballs.

The Love-Ins is a quasi-documentary of this patriotic genocide based on the life of Timothy Leary and shot in the heart of the 1960's San Francisco art and music scene. The Love-Ins features Susan Oliver (one of the Green Ladies on Star Trek TOS) and a cross-section of Haight-Ashbury musical groups such as the psychedelisized cover-group The Chocolate Watch Band.

In closing, the Sleaze-A-Saurus heartily congratulates all contemporary scaleless manlings on their ancestors ability to thin their own herd while wishing a fond farewell to no-goodnik hippie types.
