Beat Kitsch (A Brief Interlude)

Every so often we here at the Allen Ginsberg Project veer a little off track, and, just for the goof (sic), dabble in a little Beatnik sociology. For earlier examples of this indulgence see here, here and here. So we couldn’t resist the photo above.

And here’s a few more “crazy” photos, while we’re at it (culled from the web):
