Things That Don't Make Sense

All of these images come from the 1964 Western New Mexico University yearbook, but I bet if you’re a Boomer from Anywhere, USA, you can relate.

This is what technology was.

And Physical Science was boring as ever.

Not only were there cigarettes, but cigarette girls who pimped them.

People typed on typewriters, and the carriage return made a sound.

They played pinball.

They helped each other balance their checkbooks over coffee.

Not really.

They resorted to violence to resolve domestic issues.

And they relaxed, listening to The Animals sing “House of the Rising Sun.”

I love Eula’s mischievous smile.

The bare-chested, bead-donning Pied Piper here was captioned as a member of the Yippies. I confess I know nothing of Yippies (only the later Yuppies), but wikipedia says:

The Youth International Party, whose members were commonly called Yippies, was a radically youth-oriented and countercultural revolutionary offshoot of the free speech and anti-war movements of the 1960s, founded on December 31, 1967. They employed theatrical gestures, such as advancing a pig (“Pigasus the Immortal”) as a candidate for President in 1968, to mock the social status quo.

Pigasus the Immortal? I don’t get it.

It is so not on.




What You Talkin’ ‘Bout, Easter Bunny? April 13, 2015


Check out these basket-toting cuties during an Easter egg hunt, and the boy’s priceless expression. That suspicious gaze brought to mind shades of Arnold Jackson from Diff’rent Strokes–except in much more fashion forward overalls.
