old is the new old

there was a photo of the punk band bad religion in the paper today.  the pic was captioned something along the lines of 'old is the new young'.  see, the huuuuuuuge music fest COACHELLA held for two weekends in april booked bands like ac/dc and steely dan.  your grandparents music.  from another century even!  well, fresh fucking hell.  i say old is the new old.  always has been.  even if i don't cotton much to the artificial delineations made between generations.  baby boomers, gen-x and millenials have many things in common.  such as rock&roll, such as we are all human beings who want very similar things, such as the need to be happy and live good lives.  so i say fucking rock out to ac/dc down in the desert, young folks.  because you shall be old too, and very soon.  i say embrace your age, whatever you are on the spectrum.  for we shall all die.  someday.  soon.  age is not just a number.  it is an achievement.  a great gift.  rock out at whatever your age.  because you can't rock out when you are dead.  you might only wish you could.

Hey, Bo

Lets go to Coachella next year. We can stay in Indio and check out the Salton Sea, Bombay Beach and Slab City while were there.
