The so-called Beat Generation was a whole bunch of people, of all different nationalities, who came to the conclusion that society sucked.
– Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones)

The Beat Generation evolved in the 1940’s and 1950’s, headed by a holy trinity of Allen Ginsberg(1926-1997), William S Burroughs(1914-1997) and Jack Kerouac(1922-1969). It gave us literature inspired by the cadences of Be Bop jazz, spontaneous and non conformist, dealing with issues such as sexual liberation, drug use and alternative religious views (such as Zen Buddhism). There was a rejection of the materialistic ideals of cold war USA.
The phrase Beat Generation was coined by Kerouac in 1948, describing the New York scene at that time; the name came up in conversation with the novelist John Clellon Holmes (who in 1952 published an article in the New York Times Magazine titled This is the beat generation).
The movement was massively influential on the counterculture of the following decades. In Friction, 1 (Winter 1982) , Ginsberg published a summary of “the essential effects” of the Beat Generation .
Spiritual liberation, sexual “revolution” or “liberation,” i.e., gay liberation, somewhat catalyzing women’s liberation, black liberation, Gray Panther activism.
Liberation of the world from censorship.
Demystification and/or decriminalization of cannabis and other drugs.
The evolution of rhythm and blues into rock and roll as a high art form, as evidenced by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and other popular musicians influenced in the later fifties and sixties by Beat generation poets’ and writers’ works.
The spread of ecological consciousness, emphasized early on by Gary Snyder and Michael McClure, the notion of a “Fresh Planet.”
Opposition to the military-industrial machine civilization, as emphasized in writings of Burroughs, Huncke, Ginsberg, and Kerouac.
Attention to what Kerouac called (after Spengler) a “second religiousness” developing within an advanced civilization.
Return to an appreciation of idiosyncrasy as against state regimentation.
Respect for land and indigenous peoples and creatures, as proclaimed by Kerouac in his slogan from On the Road: “The Earth is an Indian thing.”

In June 1959 Playboy featured a piece by Kerouac on the origins of The Beat Generation (by now he was 37 and a best selling novelist).

Helena Antonaccio (born March 21, 1949 in Morristown, New Jersey) was Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month for the June 1969 issue.
Here she demonstrates conservation of momentum and energy…
In 1967 English actor Simon Prebble coined the name ‘Newton’s Cradle’ (now used generically) for a version of the device that demonstrates conservation of momentum and energy, manufactured by his company, Scientific Demonstrations Ltd . Harrods of London stocked the model, effectively creating the executive toy market.

Frank Sinatra Has a Cold is a seminal work of New Journalism written by Gay Talese for the April 1966 issue of Esquire magazine. Fans of Sinatra or lovers of good writing can read it here .

Gay Talese

A statement of the obvious: Brazilian music is a big part of life here at Kартошка 167. I’m sure that we all have our own idea of what the greatest recordings are. In October 2007 Rolling Stone Brasil published a list of the top 100 Brazilian LPs- a good reference list to check off your collection against or maybe as a guide as you go through the various blogs devoted to Brazilian music in order to assemble a collection.
I was going to post just a list of the records, but then I got to thinking- wouldn’t it be good to compile a list of links to blog pages where you could download these LPs (one of the blogs on the list actually seems to present the entire top 100- but that was not my object- I wanted this to be as much about the international blog community that is devoted to Brazilian music as about the music itself).
Many links are to blog pages in Portuguese – if you don’t read Portuguese don’t let that put you off- you’ll recognize the titles and artist names. You might get a pleasant surprise if you try and read the text- it’s not a hard language to read.

The ultimate respect of course to the original authors of the various blogs who ripped the music, uploaded it, created the images and shared their views with the world. Also to the artists themselves.
All the links appear to be safe (according to McAfee) and all were working as of 16.04.10.

Moderation!

I make no secret of the fact that, second to Mrs Kartoshka, I consider Mlle. Hardy to be the paradigm of female beauty.
Here she is on the cover of a Brazilian magazine from September 1964:

Check out this site for more of the same… http://www.all-over-the-world.com/FrancoiseHardy/magaz.shtml

And here, from 1968, is Françoise with Comment Te Dire Adieu.
