Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

1973 (btw, is it just me, or do I look like Bobby Brady in this pic?????):

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Post-70's remembrance:

In 1982, I wanted to look like Kenny Rogers when I got older. It never happened, btw..

Thank goodness b/c he is a mess since he got that plastic surgery!

Why oh why do people feel they need to alter their faces like that. It used to be just facelifts, but now it's just way too invasive and altering.

My dad (RIP) looked a lot like Kenny. So much so that people would stop him in the streets when Kenny Rogers was in town for a concert.

Marco said...

I also have to add... This was pre-plastic surgery Kenny Rogers phase. Late 70's early 80's :)

The Gambler, Lucille. Your parents play these songs and they grow on you.

Loved the movie six pack too.

Soo boss man! Like, wow! I am sooo happy to have found your site. Here's a few things of awesome late 60's early 70's culture I thought I'd like to share:

YouTube Danger Island segment Bannana Splits Show:

My first "man-crush" was on Jan Michael-Vincent, blond cutie on Danger Island segemnt, I was only 9 or so, approx 1970. But, he helped me solve a crucial question about myself I wasn't sure of.

What a great time it was to be a kid, we sing and dance for ever and a day! hard for kids to do these days.

Thanks for the great fun site!

Marco: Did it get old with your dad after the novelty wore off?

Noe: Weren't we all.

Evans: Glad you found me. Welcome aboard ;^)

Kenny really went around the bend with all the "work" he had, now I bet you are looking a lot more like Paul Newman in his prime, right?

joe said...

Actually I don't look like anybody..

Just adding to the chorus here, Joe. You definitely need to clarify that you mean the pre-plastic surgery version of Kenny Rogers!

Poor old Burt Reynolds is another man who should have said "No, thanks!" to plastic surgery. Very sad.

You do too look like "someone". You look like Joe from that 70's-child blog! :)

"You look like Joe from that 70's-child blog!"
Do you really think so??? I must admit there is a strong resemblance.. ;^)

@Joe..
Kenny only came to town once or twice so it wasn't that prevalent. He did get a kick out of it when it did happen.

Personlly, when I was in my early 20's I had people asking for my autograph. They thought I was some hockey player but till this day I have know clue who it was. It was quite surreal when it happened

joe said...

I'd have told people I was Kenny and gave the autographs. I'm just that way.
