Julia Child’s French Onion Soup – 1963 and 1989

Interesting to compare:
1) Video production methods (1963 was live-to-tape no cuts, B&W; 1989 was Color and cut/edited as part of series)
2) Distribution (1963 was public television broadcast; 1989 was VHS tape and printed booklet)
3) Cooking Demonstration (1963 included much discussion of knife care tips plus pre-prepared pots to show cooking stages and avoid time delays; 1989 followed one prepared pot using time edits to avoid time delays)
4) Julia (magnificent as ever : )

Where would you go to talk to people who are interested in talking to people – beyond anecdotal extremes?

star-trek-beyond-c1Where would you go to talk to people who are interested in talking to people?

I don’t mean work or hobbies or organized institutions such as churches or clubs or networking or dating I mean.. well.. people of a feather who’d like to talk together?

Something beyond anecdotal extremes?

Unity.. exploring.. disputing.. in a respectful way.. “whither humanity?”

This is a concern among the generations way more than the would-be would like to present – it’s thought, feeling, spirit, more. than any age, gender, race, whatever ism you care to specify – imho ; p
