An evening pause: Hat tip Edward Thelen who mentioned that this is “a lost television performance.”

    Edward– appreciate your selections! (They jog my memory. So much great Culture to keep track of!)

    slight tangent, not to detract from the pause…
    – a cursory search at the Archive, yields 7 George Gobel shows.
    I believe these are different shows, than the ones from the Library of Congress collection, and they were user-submitted so the quality is lacking, but very interesting nonetheless.

    (I would shill for the Archive people, big time. They have 10’s of millions of items; books, magazines, audio, video, film, etc. Unfortunately, you can not directly hot-link a player to their collection, but everything is free, available in multiple formats, and zero sign-in required, unless you want to….)

    no “Pill,” until 1960!….

  • I immediately shot the youtube link over to Camille Paglia at Salon

    “Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west’s stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art’s assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth.”
    -Camille Paglia
