I don't know where I've been. Actually, that's not fair or true. I know exactly where I've been--I've been with my kids listening to Raffi and then as they got older graduating to Jerry Garcia and David Grisman, Simon and Garfunkle and other music that my husband and I like and that the kids would also like. My son particularly likes The Monkees... It's not hip or current music, but it's got a beat.
Somehow, I missed P B and J. As in, Peter, Bjorn and John. This song, Young Folks, is already several years old, but I just heard it for the first time the other day and I like it.
Originally, We Don't Buy It was about my family's life experiment of not buying new things for a year in 2008. We mostly did it and learned a lot about our relationship to things. Now, this blog is more about the ideas we don't buy. Oh, so many awful ideas and pressures out there. We're rejecting a lot of them--ideas that keep people boxed in, and stuck. We're going our own way. We still don't buy it.
There's a plate of 12 cookies sitting on a table. The rich take 11 cookies leaving only 1 cookie left on the plate. They then turn to the Tea Party and say, "Those unions are trying to take your cookie."
