Transcript of The Sixties

1967 The Summer of Love
One of the most famous periods of the 60's, this year was characterized by a massive movement into San Fran and an increase in the hippie counterculture. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Doors Album
Monterey International Pop Festival
The Human Be-In Golden Gate Park
Scott Mackenzie's "If you're going to San Francisco..." By: Hannah Cho, Juliana Tu, Whitney Zhou, Brianne Yeskey, Elizabeth Sun The 1960s Music Music was a very big part of the youth culture.
It was characterized mainly by:
British Invasion
San Francisco Sound
Rock & Roll--Surf rock, psychedelic rock, punk rock

The importance of music is emphasized by the advent of new technologies:
Transistor radios
Record Players Movies The decade is known for being prominent in historical drama, psychological horror, and comedy, as well as the sub-genres of spy film, sword and sandal, and spaghetti westerns. Comics! In the 1960s, we entered the "Silver Age of Comic Books". Due to the 50's conservatism and young audience, comics had to adhere to the Comics Code and keep everything clean and PG. Things tended to be child-oriented, silly, and with black-and-white morality. Strange usage of "SCIENCE!" was common TV Shows TV was marked by a departure from the blandness of the 50's programs. Programs became more diverse and had more depth. Art & Design Many artistic impulses gained ground in the 60s.

You Grew Up in the 60's That cat went ape over the beach bunny. He was totally diggin' her, though he knew he had no chance. He was just a bag-food-for-the-brain type of dude after all. He began gutt waddin' at McDonald's to relieve some stress. There were so many ankle biters there having a gas! They were bogarting the entire jungle gym. He probably just looked like some Big Tuna to them. At least he wasn't the lonely Chrome Dome in the corner. Still, he felt he was eatin' grapes off the wallpaper over the girl at the beach. He tried not to have a cow--as he had a huge chalk talk to attend tomorrow--so he payed for his happy meal with funny money, told himself "tough toenails", and rode daddy's car home.
