This is a continuation of San Fran 60s. It’s more San Francisco in the Sixties, more about the birth of the hippies. Experience it all for yourself in this collection of interlinked... More > autobiographical short stories. These stories too are darker, edgier, and more intimate than anything on the subject before, also with murder, drugs, God, and sex, and with the same main character closer to Raskolnikov than Wavy Gravy. One of the murders officially ends the Summer of Love. Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison make appearances. LSD and free love, Haight-Ashbury and the Hell’s Angels, the Hip and the Straight, it’s all here. These stories too range in tone from comic to harrowing to lyrical. Some are experimental. All are interconnected, but each is self-contained so they can be read in any order. And it’s absolutely authentic because it’s based on the journals and experiences of Mark Jacobs at the nexus of the Sixties in San Francisco. He presents himself, friends, and acquaintances as prime specimens.< Less

It was the conservative fifties, and then something happened. Ed Sullivan had to dump the opera stars and Chinese acrobats and give them Elvis. Straight-laced teens became rowdy rebels. What caused... More > the change? Rock-'n'-roll and the men who brought it into homes and cars. In The Pied Pipers of Rock 'n' Roll, Wes Smith examines the phenomenon of the AM deejays who captivated a generation and helped define the counterculture that has forever changed the landscape of American youth.

Their loyal listeners would lie in darkened bedrooms for hours each night, transported from rural isolation, urban frustration, adolescent awkwardness to a place spun from the heady power of music and mesmerizing deejay lingo.< Less

It’s not difficult to imagine the universe is conspiring against you. In fact, it’s difficult to imagine it’s not. And sometimes it seems as if the whole shebang is out to get you....

And, though usually ephemeral, all is right with the universe. That was how I regarded my life in the suburbs, the paradise of my youth, which took place against a backdrop of the Beatles, Saturday morning cartoons, comic books, the space race, and flower power. What a perfect time to be adolescent and impressionable; what a perfect place to call home. And it was all the culmination of millennia of geology.< Less
