Time Creeps in this Petty Pace...

2010-07-13 23:16:24.980576+00 by petronius 2 comments

When I was in high school back in the 60s, I stumbled on a remarkable publication, the East Village Other, whigh along with the LA Free Press, the SF Oracle, the Berkely Barb etc. opened up my eyes to another, stranger world outside my midwestern environs, where dope, sex and music ruled all. And one personality who was in every issue was Tuli Kupferberg, musician, author, culture hero who has died at age 86. To give you some idea of his mind, I recommend you peruse the last 5 pages of his pamphlet 1001 Ways To Beat The Draft. Way # 1 was "Grope J.Edgar Hoover in the silent halss of Congress." Stay high, Tuli, stay high.

Oh, and I'm currently listening to "...I took nine girls to the prom last week...".

The first ad on that "1001 Ways..." link (which gave me a few chuckles!) was http://wannastartacommune.com that actually looks kinda interesting. I may see if anyone's interested in a barnraising group here...
