Whole Earth Flashbacks

My cousins out West were a whole lot older and cooler than I was when I was a pre-teen, and they had a copy of the first Whole Earth Catalog.

What a cool thing that was!

Pre-internet, there really wasn’t much like it….a catalog of useful tools.

This video has some bad language….and it reminded me that a lot of the stuff that went on in the 1960’s might not have been very morally modulated or nice (in spite of all the “grooviness”)…but it is an interesting account of a lively time and a good bunch of books called the “Whole Earth Catalogs”.

We need some grooviness now, I suppose.

You can never have enough “groovy”, can you?
