That's Sergio Mendes and the sign he's throwing is just that...sign language. If you don't know or can't find out let me know, just consider this:

Yeah, they were called "Hippies."

Nah, they're more of a nuisance than a cult.

Don 't be fooled by the appearance of the mild mannered janitor. It's just an alter ego.

These are not the hippies you're looking for:



Look at Harry. He's got wood. These are the set carpenters demanding the director pay them double time for working on a Sunday. One of them is being less than complimentary about the producers.

Haha! Yes, the one in the middle has that stern expression while demanding double-time with his right hand and threatening something very awful with his left.

Harrison's first paying carpentry job - Building a recording studio in Sergio Mendes' backyard.

Thanks for the Sergio Mendes clue, Rocket. As I mentioned before, it's a Buddhist mudra (hand gesture). Specifically the mudra, Jnana. The "o" is a circle representing the Wheel of Law and it's used in meditation, yoga, etc. Here's a quote from da global intranetses:

"The Jnana mudra (Sanskrit: jñanamudrÄ), or "gesture of knowledge" is done by touching the tips of the thumb and the index together, forming a circle, and the hand is held with the palm inward toward the heart."

The Buddha, himself, using it:

The one in the middle with the stern expression was, at that time, actually Harrison's employer.

Okay, back in the real world, if we must.

Quote:
With a summer stock-theater job on his resume and a new wife by his side (Harrison Ford married his college sweetheart, Mary Marquardt, however they later divorced), Harrison Ford left for Los Angeles with the hopes of pursuing an acting career.

Once in L.A., Harrison Ford received bit parts in television series such as The Virginian and Ironside, but this was not keeping him busy nor was it paying the bills. He took a job as a carpenter with the task of building a recording studio for Brazilian composer Sergio Mendes.

Producers and directors told Harrison Ford that he did not have what it took to be an actor, but he did have a knack for carpentry and taught himself about it with the help of a library book he borrowed.

Barbara Walters Interview
3/24/1997
ABC Special Report

(excerpt)
BARBARA WALTERS: Did you know anything about being a carpenter?

HARRISON FORD: No. No, I bought a house in the Hollywood Hills, and I started to fix it up. So I got some books on carpentry, and I started buying a few tools. I realized I wasn't going to be able to pay somebody else to do this work. I was going to have to do it myself.

Pretty soon, I had too much invested in tools to go out and buy any materials. So I went and got a job as a carpenter. I looked -- you know, I had the costume. I had the tools.

BARBARA WALTERS: You had the jeans?

HARRISON FORD: I had the book from the Encino Public Library. And when Sergio Mendes walked me around his backyard and showed me where he wanted the recording studio built and asked me questions about it, I gave him the answers that I imagined would be suitable, and I got the job.

So my first job was a $100,000 recording studio for Sergio Mendes in his backyard in Encino.

I am quite jealous of actors or people in general with the wealth to afford to smoke and let it be known. Their professions don't frown upon it. It's the regular folk who suffer from pot's negative image. It won't be legalized anytime soon because its not important, like finally getting same sex marriages legalized or funding education etc.

I like pot a lot over alcohol for common sense reasons. Alcohol destroys you and I don't drink anymore. Still it's not a necessity so I go without.

PS. Amsterdam is a really beautiful great city.

Of that, I have no doubt since it's spelled, "Ceasar", and not 'Ceaser'. (This is probably the same reason why you repeatedly spell "Exaclibur" as 'Excaliber'.) Back to school, muppet!

Back on topic: So...who else has seen Harrison in the pyschedelic, "Zabriskie Point"? (Blink and you'll miss him!)

That was poorly written. What I mean is this: given the choice of being stoned every night OR drinking yourself to sleep your body would thank you for smoking. Alcohol is a poison, it can kill you in large quantities or over time. You can't smoke yourself dead, especially if you vaporize it. Of course your bound to have a lousy group of friends and you will become a lazy bum if you smoke everyday.

Anyway, I would've liked to join Belloq and share the hookah ...and speaking of that bar there are some green leaves in the background that look suspicious

Bad things can happen when you get stoned.

Sometimes it even makes for commercial promotion. I mean, when I heard Miley did saliva, I went out and had my friend spit in my mouth. Personally, I don't get it, but Miley did it, so it's KOOWEL, right? ZOMG.

There was this one time at band camp that I did a lot of sax. Wouldn't recommend it though, as it really screws you.

Smiley was passing out. I couldn't determine whether it was from the weed or the alcohol.

Alcohol, like some other drugs, is safe in moderation. It all depends, as William S. Burroughs wrote, whether you sell yourself to it, rather than it selling itself to you.

Generally I stick to coffee.

I found it here:

http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2010/03/...dea-for-indy-5

The text on the page goes like this:

Quote:
03.03.10

ALERT THE PRAIRIE DOGS, LUCAS HAS AN IDEA FOR INDY 5

Harrison Ford recently spoke with the BBC about Indiana Jones 5 *queef*, saying “Steven [Spielberg] and George [Lucas] and I are sort of agreed on a germ of an idea and we’re seeing what comes of it.” Well jeez, I hope it’s a good one. Last time George Lucas said he had an idea, the neighborhood cats went missing.

Harrison Ford, 67, says despite coming up with an idea for the movie, people won’t see the finished product for some time. “The process works like this,” he said. “We come to some basic agreement and then George goes away for a long time and works on it. Then Steven and I get it in some form, some embryonic form. Then if we like it we start working with George on it and at some point down the line it’s ready and we do it.”

“Embryonic form,” you say? Yeah, I think I can imagine how this goes down:

LUCAS: CAN THERE BE PRAIRIE DOGS?

SPIELBERG: Yes, George, of course. Big, fuzzy ones, in every color. Great job. Here, go play with this bouncy ball.

LUCAS: YAY!

That was a whole year ago, and they're saying the same thing now. Either they're stoned, or it's groundhog day.

As for the source of the source, I don't know. Maybe those are George's speedos.
