    Have you not heard of this quote: "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind" A couple of TSR users write it under their posts ^^ Also yes, that crazy cat with the red and white hat, iconic.

    Dr Seuss is a great example of the fact that the conditions that resulted in the 1960s 'groovy' psychedelic culture were laid down many years before by Art Deco/Art Nouveau and then the jazz musicians from the 1920s/1930s but authors and wordsmiths from the era too (and the likes of Lewis Carroll/ Frank L Baum before them) all doing separate things, culminating in influencing the Beat generation in the 50s.

    My argument is that 'The 1960s' was really invented about a hundred years before.

    Debate with a friend: he dropped the term 'Dr Seuss' into conversation. I've never heard of it, to which he was surprised. Currently debating whether Dr Seuss is common knowledge.
    I encourage you to go to your nearest bookshop and head straight for the Dr. Seuss section. Right now. What a wonderful man.

    Ahh the thinks you can think :moon:
