hey 60's people...remember these guys?
I used to read, and re-read, Gilbert Shelton's comix. Bet loads of older DU'ers did too...

1. Yep dope will get you through
times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope.
I've got a pretty complete collection, alas, they're all reprints, the first editions led awfully hard lives.

2. What exactly is a sixties person?
I was alive the sixties but don't consider myself a sixties person.

Please clarify how one defines themselves as a sixties person.

Thanks!

7. A sixties person
is a person who came to awareness during the sixties, may have smoked a little dope, done a little Vietnam protesting, likes sixties music and more. Basically you have to be one to know one.

24. I was married with 5 kids in nappies and I still don't get the
sixties thing----with the exception of Viet Nam and Civil Rights it was just a bunch of college kids acting out,which all college kids do from every generation.Most of the kids that skipped class and demonstrated could have cared less about the important issues of the time.

The sixties is a myth by folks who were young in the sixties,no more,no less.The folks who said "never trust anyone over thirty" are approaching 60.

26. With 5 kids
you couldn't have gotten out too much. :( THAT is a LOT of SERIOUS WORK! :hug: There was a sense of empowerment, a challenge to think outside of the box. But ALL history is myth, eh? :evilgrin:

11. I'm reminded of R. Crumb everyday
There is a woman at work who looks like she just stepped out of one of his comics. Kinda weird.

21. I used to read them when I was about 11
Older sister would bring home comix, and I'd sneak them to read. I loved the FFFB, especially that damn cat.

25. No. The "Keep on Truckin' " guy was R. Crumb.
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 09:35 PM by charlyvi
He also did Janis Joplin's Big Brother and the Holding Company album art. Ah, sweet memories!
