The Past Isn’t What It Used To Be

Cidu Bill on Nov 3rd 2016

November 3, 2016: For whomever might be interested, this article is sort of a follow-up to the discussion we had here six years ago.

And I found out a few minutes ago that Robert Weber, the artist who drew the cartoon below, died the day after the article was published.

Coincidence, presumably.

summertime1.pngJuly 8, 2010: I was going to post this under the Geezers tag, since I’m not sure many people reaching adulthood today would quickly identify this as a reference to Porgy and Bess. But then I realized that Porgy and Bess was well before my time as well, yet I don’t think it odd that I understood it and I’d expect most people my age to recognize it as well.

The difference, I think, is that when I was growing up, entertainment was more communal: Instead of every family member scattering about for their separate entertainments — computers, DVD players, cell phones, whatever — there was a television set. Usually one in the house and if you lived in the right city, and the Reception Gods were being kind, you might be able to tune in all of seven different stations. So you watched what your parents watched, and probably your neighbors were watching the same thing. You were exposed to Bonanza because your father liked it, and to old movies because your grandparents liked them, and just about everybody growing up had the same cultural reference points (just  walk over to a crowd of people my age and say “A horse is a horse” and see if anybody doesn’t respond).

Anyway, for your listening enjoyment…
