Is this one of those ‘new math’ problems? Either way… or no way at all… that is a good picture of Big Johnny, and my godson, William.
Oh… right… we went to that museum in San Francisco… and they had this exhibit…
Sorry that one came out blurry… no flash allowed in the museum… but if you are telling yourself that nobody ever dressed like that, not even in the 60’s… that just proves you missed the 60’s… and also that you have never been to Berkeley… because I have seen people dressed like that just wandering the streets… when the Grateful dead wasn’t even playing anywhere nearby, or even still playing at all… just sayin’. (This is why I love the Bay Area, and in particular, the Berkeley part of it, and why I always say: “Everywhere is the center of the universe, but Berkeley is the center of many universes”).
This was not the best exhibit I have ever been to in a museum. It wasn’t like they had the guitar that John Lennon played, or the sweaty headband worn by Jimi Hendrix. It was mostly a lot of album art and posters for rock shows.
Whoops… I thought that old guy in the tie dye was one of the mannequins… until he moved…
But this was a fun way to spend a few hours, and it will tie in with what me and big Johnny did after Eva and Willie went home. *Try scrolling up and down while you look at the picture above, it will blow your mind)*
Even though I grew up in the Bay Area, very near to Berkeley, in the 60’s and 70’s, I am not an expert on the 60’s. Because I was born in 1960. I was ten when the 60’s ended. That being said, I am a product of the 60’s, and I certainly still listen to a lot of the music that came out of that decade. I also benefited from the sexual revolution… I was at the after-party… known as: the 70’s.
For now, we can just enjoy the pretty colors. We have a few more posts of this stuff to make it through, and then, you get to see how the end of this adventure ties in with this part of the adventure.
I think you will enjoy it. I know I did.
