The times, they are a-changing.

23 August, 2008

So I’m at work right now watching the excellent documentary The Drug Years on VH1 Classic. It’s the second episode about the 1960s and the flower generation and how all these figures emerged in America to free the masses from the mainstream through music and ultimately drugs. Then what do I see during the commercial break? A Time-Life infomercial advertising a compilation of that very music… hosted by Peter Fonda.

I see one of the poster-boys for the counter-culture has been reduced to a corporate flunkie. Damn, I expect to see David Cassidy or Barry Williams from The Brady Bunch on these ads, not a guy like Fonda. Next thing you know, Johnny Rotten will be advertising a Best of Punk compilation.
