EXPERIENCE ROCK HISTORY and COUNTER CULTURE ARCHIVES!
“200th Mind & Eye Candy Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll Archive Post in 20 Months”
First off, thanks to all of you Rockers worldwide for your continued attendance!
00individual vows to continue this archival endeavor until his last trip.
There couldn’t be better topics to celebrate than with our favorite 1960’s and 1970’s topics;
Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll.
SEX – oo – Crank It Up!
Here’s a quickie:
1960: the pill is approved for contraceptive use.
1962: It’s an instant hit. After two years, 1.2 million American women are on the pill; after three years, the number almost doubles, to 2.3 million.
1965: five years after the FDA approval, 6.5 million American women are on pill, making it the most popular form of birth control in the U.S.
1966: the beginnings of the Free Love Movement began and by 1967 women declared their independence by not wearing bras in protest to male-designed brassieres. The “bra-less’ look ironically only furthered the raw seductive allure of women, pleasing men in the process.
1968: everyone was having sex, joyously with no fear of pregnancy and most importantly no fear of deadly sexually transmitted diseases.
So for a guy or a girl attracted to each other, there was no real reason not to have sex, and most did, as the days of good girls and bad girls had switched, those who were sexually active were not seen as easy, but as liberated women, and us guys, well, we were there to oblige any free-loving female’s desires.
00individual was coming into his early sexual prime by 1968 at age seventeen, so this was really like a Sexual Disneyland in that everybody seemed to be happy and smiling and most often it was from just getting laid, or high, or both.
It was all about quality, not quantity, so 00individual stayed with a foxy chick until one of us broke it off, usually anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, but there were always sexual opportunities that came up during those times and since everyone was being cool about non-restrictive relationships, sex happened.
Since there were no dangers there was no reason for condoms; that cliche about the condom in the wallet was just for looks, I guess, I never used mine as it was always smooth sailing.
If anyone wasn’t enjoying this it was the “adults”, as they were hiding behind morality to disguise their jealousy of missing out. Although, a few years later the “Swinger” lifestyle and open marriages became a way for the parents to partake in the Sexual Revolution.
00individual doesn’t kiss and tell, but will relate a special night: I used my old bedroom and bathroom that I grew up in as a pit stop from time to time during my days of free-form living. No one was home so I arranged to meet a girl I’d been seeing in my bedroom, I was nineteen, as was she. We had sensational hot sex with savagely tender lustful make-out sessions while grinding away like animals. When we were done she had to leave and right after I showered my estranged long-time girlfriend showed up and we had sensational hot sex with savagely tender lustful make-out sessions while grinding away like animals and as soon as we were done we heard my mother come home, my girlfriend hid in my closet as I told my mother I stopped by to use the shower, my girlfriend got dressed and I helped her climb out the bedroom window.
After another shower and once on the road in my car, I met up with friends at a party in Playa Del Rey where neither of my two previous love babes were. The party got out of control, cops came and I ended up having sex in the back seat of my 1951 Buick with the now grown up cute and sexy sister of a guy I knew and we had sensational hot, yeah, you get it, at that age and under those free-love conditions chicks were into it and sex was hot and fun.
These are rare occasions that merit archiving for the fact that while “good lovin'” takes place daily all over the world, back in the ’60s it was done with no agenda, malice or ulterior motives, it was for the pure pleasure of both parties and many times with love and sometimes with true love and sometimes with LSD which took all of that hot sex to a spiritual level of love and with all that focus on love is why we were called the Love Generation.
DRUGS – oo – Crank It Up!
00individual gives thanks daily for being born into this plane of existence exactly when he was for many, many reasons and the most prominent one was to be at the perfect age to take part in the Drug Culture, the Counter Culture, the Sexual Revolution and the exciting Strange Days all with Historic and Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll as the life soundtrack. It was a thrill to be just one of the chosen to experience that brief point in history for just the right amount of time needed to alter history and society for the positive.
Drugs shouldn’t be a hot topic or a moral / criminal issue, they should be legal, all of them – but when all of the real drug money funds the black ops, the black governments, the black market and the black hole of the elite, society will have to be content with the legalization of weeds that you can grow in your own backyard . . . yeah, I know, really.
A Hippie with definite Bohemian leanings, 00individual remembers days getting high with friends and joking about a world where we could go into a store and buy high-quality Marijuana and Hashish, and we would all smile and then laugh at how ridiculous but how cool it would be, but it was as improbable as an elected Black U.S. President.
Being an artist was kind of a cheat as my imagination gave me a bit of a head start as far as accepting and enjoying the strange imagery, hallucinations and concepts that came with psychedelics, but back then everyone was exploring their creative side, it was in the air, and a “trip” to an alternate state of mind triggered many an artist and non-artist to see things differently, and for those who got even a bit of insight and cosmic fun; they usually came back for more.
Drugs changed our lives forever, it was as if being reborn with deeper feelings of empathy for friends and more importantly, strangers. Our minds expanded to comprehend concepts and thoughts brought about during trips of introspection and crazy wild fun.
Fun with drugs could be amplified or reversed depending on your state of mind and allowance of the drug to take control – all you had to remember as you were screaming down a cosmic hill, terrified, white-knuckled in a phantom vehicle, like a wagon with a jet engine, riding the edge as the sound and speed become unbearable until you can’t steer or hold on any longer and as you’re about to leave the steep road of the last of any known reality and careen off into the dark oblivion of your mind you hear a voice off in the distance become louder and it says, “Come on, Man, we gotta go.” and you see your buddy heading for the front door and you get up and follow him out into the refreshing cool night air – it was just the drug.
On the lighter side, once outside everything glistens, the gathered minuscule moisture on everything becomes opalescent silver and the air that you inhale tastes like the Nectar of the Gods and you can kind of see the volume of air around you and it feels as though it assists you as you take shotgun in your buddy’s car.
The car and you become one as you pull away from the curb and drive down the streets of low-lying beach town fog which transforms into clouds and for a second you hope your buddy has control of his side of the car, one look and you’re assured that he’s in control as you take off high into the clouds and leave the tiny sparkling town lights below – again it was just the drug . . . or was it?
There is a valid theory that just as with the dreams that the populace of this planet have every night that can be as real as any average day or night, that we do, for those moments in time, experience a reality as “real” as the one we “live” every day.
00individual has a theory that any mind-altering experience is a slip through the membrane of realities. Beyond the physical are worlds accessed by the immeasurable power of the brain, a God-like machine overseen by the mind and driven by spirit, that can explore these realms for any number of personal needs, desires or lessons.
Breaching these reality states-of-mind membranes could be as simple as walking through a parted curtain into another reality. This would account for nearly all paranormal, supernatural, metaphysical, extraterrestrial, cryptid or elemental incidents. Maybe on strolls on any street or nature environment we unknowingly slip through for a moment, unaware and into another separate reality and become the “Bigfoot” for those indigenous beings.
Reality is really pretty flimsy, it’s just something everyone agrees on.
For those of us who have experienced other realities we know better, reality is what you make it.
. . . and therefore, every personal experience is real, especially if you live to tell it . . . and that’s just what 00individual is doing.
It’s that rebel spirit that surges through you every time you hear anthemic power chords and driving tribal beats.
It’s not surprising that Rock transcends genres and includes them at the same time; Rock is a spirit; a Spirit that empowers and is an adrenaline shot to the system that can be your back-up in dire times of need and “your only friend until the end”; Rock is solid; Solid is righteous; Rock makes you feel righteous. Amen.
Back in the early-to-mid ’60s Rock ‘n’ Roll and all that it had come to represent was a huge part of the Global Tribe.
It was the main force behind integration with the enthusiastic response of white teens to black R&B – Rock was an unrelenting force and eventually triumphed over the ignorance, prejudice and bigotry of “Race” music.
Rock altered our outlook, our style, our talk, our attitude and our independent viewpoints, feelings and goals. We had our own distinct Youth Culture and made the transition from Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids to Hippie Freaks to Hip Rockers of the Rock Revolution!
Music was the conduit between us all; it was a musical invitation coming from any open door or window, it was the amplified vibe and feelings of how we felt inside – individually and collectively.
Many an hour was spent getting high and listening to albums on state-of-the-art sound systems with friends and friends of friends; it was the original social network with real flesh and blood people that you could talk to, see in person and laugh and enjoy each other’s company.
Rock concerts were integral to our Tribe and we approached each historic concert as a Vision quest with psychedelic sacrament taken to insure maximum enjoyment, spiritual highs and indelible memories of blessed once in a lifetime Rock ‘n’ Roll adventures.
Rock was a drug, a wonderful, hip, cocky, virile, fun, empowering, enabling drug that delivered a jolt to the core of what it means to be human. Rock ‘n’ Roll enlightened and flexed the muscles of a generation and was the catalyst for positive radical change – Power To The People! Right On!
Enjoy the Historic Pinnacle of 1960’s and 1970’s Classic Rock Concerts!
