You know Wavy Gravy: Before he was an ice-cream flavor, the ultimate 60s icon founded America’s longest-running hippie commune, pulled all kinds of wacky political pranks like trying to elect a pig for president, and was the Grateful Dead’s “official clown.” He also MCed the original Woodstock Festival and manned the freak-out tent there. Considering that he talked down so many bad trippers at arguably the worst trip of all time, we figured he’d have some good advice on what to do when you get “the Fear” (we were also hoping he’d use a bunch of cornball drug terms like “trip sitting” and “bogart,” but he kept those to a minimum). Vice: So, Wavy, what do you do when someone’s really freaking out?
