Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Hahahaa! Just thought of this. My buddy's lad was about 14 and I asked, when he said sommat stunnedasmearse, "Who you jivin with that cosmic debris?" He was a puppy in full headtwist. I asked him if he know who Frank Zappa was, knowing the answer. I played some for him. He freaked out. I let him access my LPs after I showed him how they should be handled. Anytime my buddy visited me after that, the lad would immediately ask if he could play some records. Warmed my heart. Not too often a kid gets access to THAT many works of art. Imagine a kid (some 15 years ago) listening to Mario Lanza... Torme... Pavarotti... Makem... Roger Miller... The Cars... Zappa... Deep Purple... Alice Cooper... Jethro Tull... Patty Wynette... about 3000 to choose from. Now, kids get fed Beeber or whatever the hell his name is. Sigh.
