Now that we’ve hit our fifties, the likelihood of having a hangout besides home, is pretty close to zilch. The nice part of being a BlogHER or bloghim (duh) is that you can pretty much say what is buzzing in your brain. Whether people read your blog is irrelevant. Or just hashtag #revelence and you may snag a few stragglers.
I thought I’d write about some cool things to watch, in case you miss it, since I don’t follow MUST WATCH tv reviews or media outlets. I’m pretty much not dominated as to what to endorse, or express what I think would appeal to those in our age group just getting into our 50s born in the timeframe @1960-65 ::
You may wanna watch this: it is almost like a cloud over our heads :: we know we’ve seen it at the surface :: through the psychedelic colors of the 70s :: we had our heads above water, born of the first few years of the NUCLEAR BOMB threat. As babies, we were too young to be able to decipher or understand the fear in the adults around us :: bomb shelters, elongating skirt lengths, Andy Warhol, the first sniff of hip hop under the guise of FUNK.
Our older siblings or older wore suffocating our own expressions. Think of the cartoon ZIGGY dominating our perception of the world. Those born in @1960-65 are hitting well into their 50s … are trying to deal with that. The fun and gregarious ZIGGY being stifled. That’s us.
You can watch the sophisticated TV show called: “Vinyl” :: it is like experiencing that era as it happened while having our own take on it circling in a psychedelic cloud overhead. Some liked the music while we lay dormant, waiting for the next music explosion.
The 70/80s were pretty complex times. Our influences were barely coming to grips, and we were reaching forward for the next BIG THING :: disco!
