la fin du siècle
Interesting blog. Arguably, the biggest legacy of Woodstock is its huge impact on the real children of the sixties: Generation Jones (born 1954-1965, between the Boomers and Generation X). This USA TODAY op-ed speaks to the relevance today of the sixties counterculture impact on GenJones: http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/news/20090127/column27_st.art.htmGoogle Generation Jones, and you’ll see it’s gotten a ton of media attention, and many top commentators from many top publications and networks (Washington Post, Time magazine, NBC, Newsweek, ABC, etc.) now specifically use this term. In fact, the Associated Press' annual Trend Report forcast the Rise of Generation Jones as the #1 trend of 2009.Here's a page with a good overview of recent media interest in GenJones:http://generationjones.com/2009latest.html
WOW! I had taken a look at that label (Generation Jones) when I first came across it online, recently... I didn't know what to make of it really. One: I don't like the name, BUT, two: some of the descriptions do "feel" like being seen in the larger context of national culture; maybe even heard for a change. I will post your suggested links! Tell the truth, I have always been shifting my own cultural identifiers around all my adult life, because nothing really ever seemed to fit! Thanks for commenting on this labor of love, called: "One Female Cultural Creative;" counter-culture history told from a GenJones perspective_ who knew?! That's cool!!
