Beat Kitsch (A Brief Interlude)
Every so often we here at the Allen Ginsberg Project veer a little off track, and, just for the goof (sic), dabble in a little Beatnik sociology. For earlier examples of this indulgence see here, here and here. So we couldn't resist the photo above.
And here's a few more "crazy" photos, while we're at it (culled from the web):
[1959, Venice, California, Contestants for "Miss Beatnik of 1959" Competition]
[Kids' Themed Beatnik Party c. 196o's]
[ "Beatnik Horror" - Stuart Sutcliffe's "pad" (with John Lennon with back to the camera), Gambier Terrace, Liverpool, 1960 - featured in Sunday Mirror exposé]
[Beatnik Jam - can you dig the rhythm? - You know you can!]
