Hula Dancing and other Risky Behavior

So I was listening to a music in the Live Music Archives section of a local surf band, Mermen http://www.archive.org/details/mermen2009-07-31.m300.flac16. I was really liking “Big Day At The Bay”.

Which got me to thinking about surfing. A search got me to “This is your life Duke Kahanamoku (1957)”, http://www.archive.org/details/this_is_your_life_duke_kahanamoku. Kowabunga! The Hula dance! Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller)! Five Olympic games and world records! Rescue hero!

Which put me in the mind of skateboarding in the 60′s whereupon I happened across this gem: “Skateboard Sense” by Sid Davis, http://www.archive.org/details/skateboard_sense. The skating is kind of laughable but I was mostly looking at the cars and bellbottoms. Bug! Vega! Duster!

So I searched Sid Davis which took me to “Keep Off The Grass” http://www.archive.org/details/keep_off_the_grass. The three panel presentation of drugs¬† at about 11 minutes in is identical to the one that was used in my school in that same era. Ah, the nostalgia! Ah the flashback!¬† - Jeff Kaplan
