Allen Ginsberg's epic poem Howl animated by Mark Mentzer.

Irwin Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) was an American poet and cherished Member of the San Francisco Renaissance. He would later be associated with the Beat Generation in a broader sense; His poetics did center around attacking what he saw as the destructive forces of materialism and conformity in the United States at the time.

    Sometimes I think I should have been born in the "angelheaded hipster" days - Born on the cusp (1975) is for the birds LOL. I can certainly appreciate the sex, drugs & rock-n-roll - perhaps throw in a handful of other things as well - no clap of course though...unless applause by fellow inebriates, loving to spread the rainbow wide open for those not so 'everyday faire', as to be embrasive of all society... Hmmm - MsJ a hippy at heart? A flowerchild in 2012?! Hmmm. Okay - off I go for a hit of LSD LOL

    This is an easier bite to chew.
    Sex, drugs and rock n roll. Sex, of course, being the best part if you didn't get 'the clap', syph or some other std back then.
    Drugs. My God, what the hell did we do to our children? What kind of example did we show them? Yes, thank God, many of the next generation figured out some of our errors but still managed to make more of their own.
    I wonder how many of those who protested would have bothered if they could see how much of a difference they didn't make. The wheels of democracy still move slowly, The Man still is in charge though now some of who rebelled are now to charge.
    I looking forward to the second part of Howl. I'll be able to remember what I've read and to appreciate it all the more.
    Thanks, Sis for taking the time to find and post this.
