You know, Carmichael, there was a Colgate toothpaste commercial like that. An amazing fact about it is that although it showed an enormous variety of scenery, much of it looking bucolic, it was shot entirely in New York City, because NYC is so big & scenery-diverse, it can stand for the whole country or world.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/21/17 6:22pm Listener John from NJ:

Around 1973/74 Up With People inspired a political rebellion at Goshen College, a Mennonite school in Indiana. Goshen did not permit dancing . . . and some students weren't pleased. My wife was there and reported that when Up With People was scheduled to perform at the school, a lot of students got together and demanded the right to dance at the UWP show . . . Their protest was fruitless . . .

"Freedom isn't free" is a slogan a lot of libertarian organiz'ns use. Of course often it's in the context of getting you to donate. I don't know if that's what Up With People had in mind by it, though.

A lot of '20s stuff in the' 60s as well, many similarities: prosperity, social change, popular illegal drugs, mass culture very important. The Depression quashed a lot of the '20s stuff; making the middle classes perpetually afraid did for much of the' 60s. (I think it was T.R.W,. who answered 'What caused the Damn Sixties?' with 'People stopped being afraid of poverty and acted as if they might have rights.'. )

"Winchester Cathedral", "Enery the Heighth", Tiny Tim's &oelig;uvre, "Some Like It Hot", (some of the '60s began in the late' 50s),Weimar nostalgia,

Rock & roll can't die because there'll always be something CALLED that. It's immortal in the same way as The Phantom, The Ghost Who Walks.

No more rock n roll for me. From now on, it's wholesome all the way. Where's my blazer??

can't deny the mainstreaming of camp in the 70s, kids. & camp loved vaudeville.

Less certain, but I've seen the claim that M.A. was tight with the Gehlen Apparat, the C.I.A.'s supposedly pet supposedly-ex—Nazis…who were riddled with Soviet assets, but great at getting S.S. types to Argentina, Portugal, Paraguay, and Irak. (This is the stuff about which Dave Emery is fairly sound.)

Blaze a few before you commit to the blazer.

My thesis: the early/mid-'60s were so weird the drugs were a valiant attempt to adapt.
