Mad Men tries again to show the Hip Sixties

So Mad Men tried… to show what the Sixties were REALLY like.

 
To make up for its foolish error about St. Marks PL by taking characters (and US) to the Electric Circus, which was a sort of dance and groove out joint on St Marks Pl (It had been a Polish hall for celebrations called the Dom and some other things).

They showed a light show that I assume may have been meant to be The Joshua Light Show… but I am not sure. I saw the light show at The Electric Circus once. Never had money to go to things that cost anything.
All around me was the Village, with all the culture and all the energy– I never went to a single Rock concert, however– No Fillmore East. I went twice, that’s wrong. Went to see “The Enlightenment of the Buddha” by Timothy Leary (a light show of another kind) and to hear my beloved Incredible String Band play.
“All the world is but a play,
Be thou the joyful player!”

About quarryhillcreativecenterVT

I am the daughter of the founders of Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT. I've been a writer all my life, and also love to draw in pastel, like my mother. My father taught me to write and many other things (rather as Prospero taught Miranda). I learned many things from my mother too-- not just how to draw, but how to be caring and kind to animals and things that can not protect themeselves. "They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain." That has been her central point of view and is one of Quarry Hill's mottos. We welcome visitors, love children, and have places to rent and sell if anyone wants to come live in the beauty of the Vermont Mountains. ladybellefiske@gmail.com
