BABY BOOMER REVERIE: 1964 I had a black girlfriend at the University of Southern California. Black-white couples were rare in those early boomer college days. Almost anywhere we went, people starred at us, even on campus. Most weren’t hostile, just surprised and curious. We got used to it. I begged Sonya to take me toRead the Rest…

Posted on August 14th, 2010 in 1970s,1980s,Celebrities,Crime,Movies,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

“I know it when I see it.” Supreme Court Justice Stewart’s definition of “obscenity.” What could be more exciting and scandalous? A gorgeous (36D-25-36), wildly enthusiastic, underage XXX star? Of course, no one knew (ha! ha!) I was 15 when I started. You might say I put the “baby” in baby boomer X-movies. I was livingRead the Rest…

Posted on June 7th, 2010 in 1960s,1970s,Black History & Personalities,Crime,New Left,Politics by Terry Hamburg

People will forever remember me for my famous line: “Violence is as American as apple pie.” I must declare, it’s a baby boomer new left classic, but I did a lot more than spout catchy ditties. New left. Old left. I just wanted to empower those who had been left behind. As the head ofRead the Rest…

GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN

BABY BOOMER REVERIE: 1960 IT WAS GREEK TO ME Pledging in the early 1960s was hell for baby boomers. The final stretch of the fraternity pledge semester is still called “Hell Week.” For boomer girls, it was more like heck. I  got an inside earful from a Phi Sig I dated.

Nothing happened to me. As I said in an interview: “I can’t afford to die, it would ruin my image.” I was born in 1914 when “boomer” meant someone who made loud noises. I was a muscle man and fitness guru before anyone thought it was “cool.” All these baby boomer upstarts—Jane Fonda, Arnold Schwarzenegger,Read the Rest…

The 1970s antiques and collectibles renaissance was fueled by young boomer consumers. Boomers were also the principle sellers.

BABY BOOMER REVERIE: 1963 FIESTA! It was the pledge class party of the year. Our theme—South of the Border, a popular choice in the early and pre-boomer college scene.

    What’s good for the boomer goose is good for the boomer gander. The sexual revolution of the 1960s isn’t over. Nor is women’s liberation. Meet the cougar. Are we having an epidemic of female boomer chronophilia? The male boomer version is regarded as a natural part of life. If a man can haveRead the Rest…
