Rescued Boomer Comment

We received this link in a comment and decided to rescue it out of the comment queue and put it here.

Shot this video about a month ago but I really think it ties into the pregnant Paris discussion nicely! :-)

Guest Boomer Comment

The following was posted as a comment here, but we decided it was worth it's own placeholder, so here it is in all its glory:

From Tina

I'm fighting it kicking and screaming! I'm not going to get old. I'm not going to freak out about how many times we made Barbie DO IT with GI Joe....hey, GI Joe was little, but Manly.

You Boomers have a hella website, which was made possible by fellow SeattleBoomers: Gates and Allen; not by anyone from Tennessee or Arkansas or wherever it is that MarxistBoomerPresidents come from to steal credit from GeekBoomers.

Culinary Student Seeking Boomer Help

We found the following plea on the Baby Boomer Board and decided to move it here to give it a little better exposure.

Please add your comments using the link at the end of the article.

"I am in search of information from people who spent time at coffeehouses during the late 60's and early 70's. I am currently a culinary student and intend to recreate the coffeehouse of that era in the future. Due to my age I am unable to create an authentic coffeehouse without help of the Baby Boomer generation. Any tips, ideas, thoughts etc. to spare would be groovy!

The first thing you're going to need is tables. "back then" there was an ample supply of big, wooden cable reels. Thanks to one enterprising company, these reels no longer lay around empty fields.

Reel Solutions now recycles them to the cable manufacturers, but I'm sure you could get a few for your coffeehouse.

Don't forget copious quantities of cigarette and pipe smoke mingled with that of our favourite weed. Then you want a few chess sets laying around, a small stage in one corner just big enough for a stool, mike, pig amp and two acoustic backup players. Bad lighting is a must. Depending on themood you're going for Black Light is a definite option.

My all-time favorite had sawdust on the floor. At least, I think it was sawdust--I never actually got down and looked. Also, posters--- advertising local groups, mini-festivals, and upcoming events, protests, macrame workshops, etc. I'm sure we drank and ate something, but I have no idea what.

We drank Mad Dog 20/20 and ate SPAM on crackers

I used to go to the OffCenter Coffee House in Honolulu near the University of Hawaii. It was run by a lutheran minister connected to the UH. He was Hawaii and very COOL. We all hung out and played and listened to guitar folk music. Mostly open mike. Most everyone was in soem state of intoxication, lots of cigarette smoke, and I think they served food, but we usually got the munchies and ended up at a local bakery eating doughnuts. Good luck.

Wow! I remember a place called the Phase II in Atlantic City NJ. The whole place was painted flat black, then flourescent paint deco with flowers and misc cool stuff everywhere. Black lights lit the whole place. Freaky!

There was a big stage and a band called "Grandma" played. Two pieces. Drums and a stereo Bass. Half the Bass went to a huge amp and the other half to an organ speaker. Had a poster of Grandma rolling her weed on the speaker.

Man! What a good time to be alive!

Regarding your cafe, think dark, and burn some rope (hemp) or incense. LOTS of Jasmin or Patoulli would do it for me. (If you find a 4 foot bong made out of plumbing fittings, call me)

76,542,735 Boomers - 1

We received an e-mail yesterday that informed us (between explitives) that the writer, born in 1961, did not want to be counted as a Baby Boomer.

We sprang into action and informed the US Census of his wishes. We are now happy to report that the correct number of Baby Boomers currently stands at 76,542,734.

We also informed the AARP and they are delaying his membership application an additional four years.

Finally, as an official Gen-Xer, we're sending the writer three free English grammer lessons and a bottle of whine.

Subject: Searching for Birthmother

From: Darlene Purtle: darlene-at-dialnet-dot-net

My niece's name is Jennifer Cummins Konye. She was born on 10/01/73 at St. John's hospital in Springfield, Missouri. Her mother was supposedly a medical technician, she was approximately 35 years old in 1973 and suffered from epilepsy, diabetes and mild arthritis. She had 3 older children at the time, ages 10, 12, and 14.

My sister saw on the adoption papers when they signed them the name Nancy Davidson.

Anything you can do to help would be appreciated.
