Fascinating. Whipped me into a bit of a time warp.

I saw that headline & instantly heard the melody in my head. That takes me back. (Fifteen years, not fifty.) Thanks for this.

So awesome. Thanks. Ginsberg is the star for me.

I like beatniks, but they really should have brought some food.

Depressingly, I heard an altogether different melody.

Wow, looks like a great article; I'll have to set it aside for later.

By the way, Fire in the East, A Portrait of Robert Frank was really good documentary, imo. I was trying to find it online, but apparently it is hard to come by. The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg is great as well.

Hepcats, sonny. Or beatniks. Get your kneejerk dismissals right.

I can see the whole article too. Among other things Pull My Daisy was Delphine Seyrig’s first movie role.

Ginsberg is the star for me.

Ginsberg had charm. He could have gone Hollywood if he wanted to.

Yeah, I saw him give a reading way back in I dunno, 1982? Ferlinghetti was there too and a bunch of others but the only one I remember is Ginsberg.
