Time Was Different

Either Joel or Mike (forget which) was described at one point as a “shallow post-Boomer.”

Lol. Yep. It was Joel. Because of that riff, I took it for granted for years that he was, chronologically, part of X.

(But I forgive him. :smiley: )

Original posts just need a quick title edit and SCHPLURNT! the images are back.

Where did you find those?

I have access to Newspapers.com myself which I use for research; I tend to search through older papers from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Is that the site you use?

I don’t know where they got those newspaper clips from, but I’ve heard that the building code is under fire.

The…Internet?

It was actually really annoying. IIRC, I found a site that had free archives for Southern California (the San Bernardino Sun and one of the Palm Springs area newspapers) when I was responding to What would you do with a billion dollars and a banker’s salary? and I just used that again.

No new petitions for tax, though. Slow news day.

That’s what happens when people wash their building code with gasoline. When will they learn?

My mom once had a ‘50s party’ where she recreated a lot of the foods from when she was a teenager and one of them was ‘chicken in aspic,’ which is basically chicken soup in Jell-O form. It wasn’t too bad believe it or not.

Actually, it was ‘shallow pose boomer’, which is beatnik slang.
