About me

me_and_new_castleI’m Edwin. Welcome to the site of the Savage Hippie blog and podcast.  Accept NO imitations… or just not the shitty ones.  I stole the name “Savage Hippie” from the Melvins song “The Savage Hippy“, and I’ve been hosting this podcast with Ann Sterzinger and David Cole since the middle of 2016.  They are two lovely people who are way more important and interesting than I am and really only do the podcast as a way to relieve the stress of their day to day lives by belittling me.  I take the abuse because I HAVE NOTHING ELSE IN LIFE!!!  If you want to know more about them, don’t be a lazy ass, and click on their links.

Originally I had a really long explanation of who I am and what I stand for, but people don’t read that stuff anyway, so I’ll try to keep it short and simple.  I used to just write about movies, music, arts and entertainment, but I moved my scope over into social and political views because why the heck not?  We’re living in interesting times, everyone’s got an opinion and politics is only downstream from pop culture.  Or is it upstream?  I dunno, whatever.  It seems that the United States – and much of the Western world – has never been more divided, and it’s up to people like me to continue to push that divide to the point of collapse.

Juuuuust kidding… there’s a lot of stupidity in this world, and I use this here website of mine to contribute to this stupidity.  You’re welcome.

Feel free to leave a comment with all your thoughts, no matter how offensive.  Ain’t no thoughtcrime around these parts!  And, if you actually want to reprint one of my posts in your blog, want to write something for this blog or want me to write something new for your blog, hit me up!  I’m too new to demand money for my services; just credit and exposure are good enough.

One thought on “About me

  1. Hi,
     
    I came across your beauty blog savagehippie.wordpress.com and

    really love your posts – honest, personal, and SUPER useful

    makeup tips that I know many women love too!
     
    I lead all PR efforts for The Salon Outlet, a new online

    retailer for salon and makeup tools and equipment. The Salon

    Outlet offers products to help you, the beauty specialist,

    makeup artist, hair stylist, salon or spa owner, with those

    professional touches at a very affordable price tag – so you

    can spend your hard earned money on the products that matter

    most. We give you the practical, you do the pretty.
     
    For our big launch, we are partnering with the hottest beauty

    and makeup bloggers, so I’m reaching out to you to see if we

    could work together. Here are different ideas we have:

    1) Sponsored Blog Post. We’d like to sponsor a blog post for

    you, in exchange for $20. I’ll send you an article with photos

    – which of course you can personalize as you like.

    2) Product Review. We’d like to send you a product, and in

    exchange, ask you to write up a review, with a link back to

    TheSalonOutlet.com. Can also be done in video form if you

    prefer.

    3) Product Giveaway. You can host a contest for your blog

    readers and we’ll send your winner a product. Our makeup brush

    sets would be great for this.

    Check out the flyer for more details here:

    4) Video Tutorial using our Products. If you are planning to do

    makeup tutorials in the near future, use our makeup tools and

    mention The Salon Outlet in the tutorial.
     
    We’ve got limited spots as we have several bloggers interested

    already, but after I saw your tres chic blog I wanted to see if

    you’d like to take advantage of this opportunity. Check us out

    at http://www.thesalonoutlet.com. We’re making final decisions by

    4/27, if you can, please do respond before then. Looking

    forward to hearing from you!
