I had never heard of Generation Jones. Glad to know about it. I think I'm part of Generation Moans, living in an ultimate sexual swamp deep in some Louisiana Bayou.
I'm thinking of that great Jim Jarmusch movie, Down By Law, the one with Tom Waits.
The 1950's were strange times, though. Mark Twain said, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes." Perhaps we're rhyming now.
