Bust, and Echo in the Harvest Canon
This is the demographic picture in America:
million kids produced in 19 years and 29% of the current population.
The anti-Vietnam hippies who brought in a cultural revolution.
TV as the main media. I'm in this group. The tail-end. Bill
Clinton was the first boomer US president.
million kids produced in 12 years. 16% of the current population.
Hippie kids and those weaned on cable TV and computer games.
Summer is in this group. The tail end. Generation x is pretty
screwed up emotionally.
million kids produced in 21 years. 30% of the current population.
The first real digital brats. Some still in diapers and many
internet savvy. Many also hippie kids, but with even more distance
from the 60's. This is the first group that is net-work savvy
and knows more about digital technology than their parents.
Ilythia is at the front of this group.
Farts: 25% of the remaining population. Many are senior citizens
and a tiny minority of this minority run the USA. PERIOD. These
dinosaurs have lost touch with their morals and their souls.
They are the empire builders and empire keepers. When I say
old farts I do not mean to denigrate the majority of our senior
citizens who have much experience to pass ontto the youngsters.
But it's just a slang term to hit the old elites in America
with. Anybody who is US president has to deal with them regardless
of when they were born.
of Gems spans the boom-bust-echo divide and was written for
this huge group. But seniors are always welcome! The post-WW1
era brought confusion and acceleration. Hemingway Fitzgerald
attacked the age from exile. The post-WW2 age brought more of
the same. Salinger and Kerouac mirrored this age of anxiety.
The post-Cold War era is MY TURF and I'm doing MYTHING. It's
just more confusion and acceleration. I'm just struggling to
be a mirror. But unlike Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Salinger, and
Kerouac. I've got the web and I'm talking to all my translators
NOW all over the world.
all in LA, city of the angels and of celluloid dreams.
