    I can scarcely believe that, nearly 50 years later, people are still so hung up on the 1960's. Imagine if, in the Summer of Love, American youth were all fascinated with ragtime music, vaudeville, gas lamps and heavy woolen bathing costumes. It would have been bizarre, sad and pathetic. And it still is.

  5. I think you mean 'place'.

  6. The Democrats in their youth, plotting to make a "better" America while in the throws of LSD

  7. It was a whole lot more fun live, in living color, at the time that Summer in San Francisco, than it looks here. You really had to be there, I guess.

  8. I had an acid flashback right in the middle of that gallery.

  9. It looks awful!

  10. No, our whole society caught crabs from that decade.

  11. The youth of that time, raised in post-WWII prosperity, turned out to be the most self-impressed generation in American history. Blogger David Burge had it nailed when he listed the difference between the Baby Boomers and a plague of locusts. Locusts don't go around proclaiming that they're the locusts that changed everything!

  12. Tom Wolfe said that these living conditions revived a lot of skin diseases that doctors had never seen before--they were so ancient that they didn't even have scientific names, and went by their medieval names instead.

  13. Can you imagine the nerve of these shag-nasties, presuming to instruct the veterans of Normandy, Okinawa, the Bulge and Iwo Jima, that "War is not good for children and other living things"?

  14. Surprised at the number who are strictly speaking "hipsters," rather than "hippies" -- a distinction we would probably only make with 50 years' perspective.

    I hate to say it cause I sound like my father before me: Most of them look they could use a cup of coffee, a shower and a hot home-cooked meal.

  15. The guy in the man-dress is carrying a mop? Do hippies even know what a mop is used for?

  16. I was just a kid at the time but remember being horrified at the behavior, appearence and yes the smell of these people. What a disgusting bunch. I despised them and I was only 13-14 yrs old.

  17. I'm right from that generation. I disagreed then as I do now that to fix the world you first have to tear it down.

  18. Harvey Krishna! Far Out! What's your sign? Nothing but the best pure Owsley, my man! Those were shots designed to focus on the squalor. It was real, but almost peripheral for most of us in Baghdad-by-the-Bay (or the Paris-of-the-West). A truly amazing and amusing Summer that was, listening to, and hanging with, the Dead and the Airplane, Moby Grape. So many kids, 99% of whom were simply looking for a good time, having hitched from everywhere. It was always a little heart-rending to see the kids from warmer climes with their kapok sleepling bags trying to cope with the fog rolling in through the Sunset and the Richmond and up the Panhandle - seeing rather predatory guys offering the shivering (and slightly bewildered and stoned) young girls a warm bed with a bottle of wine, some dope, and the usual strings.

  19. Today they are all materialistic, litigious liberals.

  20. and those people raised the self absorbed, deserving 30 somethings of today. their kids run around restaurants like it's a commune, they take all kinds of prescription drugs for problems that previous generations handled without complaining, and are ladened with guilt from their over privileged existence.

  21. Each and every one of them is now retired from either a college teaching position or a government agency job.

  22. They're all in the Obama administration, hence, the condition of the country. Progressive loons.

  23. I believe it. Just looking at the photos made me itchy.

  24. I don't have to imagine it. I saw it.

  25. The hippies who were "living for today" back then are now demanding that their children and grandchildren be taxed to pay for their healthcare, their retirement, etc. etc. that they couldn't be bothered to earn for themselves.

  26. In response to 'Good Stuff' - roughly 7 mos. ago ~ I recall hearing n reading about this horrible n yes (very) cruel joke those 'frats' played on her, I hope they're proud of themselves by demeaning someone who had tried to be what 'others wanted her to be.' She, or anyone did NOT deserve to be treated the way she was. I bet these 'frats' are now fat, bald n not getting a 'second look' from the opposite sex now. What cowards they were, then n still to this day. Now had ANY of them 'stepped up' n claimed their actions were wrong n hurtful, then maybe I'd respect them, but so far, not one of them have had the courage to do so. Hope they never have to see the world treat their own kids or grand kids go thru what they put Janis thru...... RIP Sweet Janis. I'm so very sorry certain idiots made your life hell - you NEVER deserved it, I can only now pray you are at peace. 'Pearl', you were n still are loved beyond words......
