Bagism redux

A PS to my post on Bagism, Dragism, etc.

Here’s John on the David Frost show in 1969, explaining Bagism in his own words:

John : What’s Bagism? It’s like…a tag for what we all do, we’re all in a bag ya know, and we realised that we came from two bags – I was in this pop bag going round and round in my little clique, and she was in her little avant-garde clique going round and round, and you’re in your little tele clique and they’re in their…ya know? And we all sort of come out and look at each other every now and then, but we don’t communicate. And we all intellectualize about how there is no barrier between art, music, poetry… but we’re still all – I’m a rock and roller, he’s a poet… So we just came up with the word so you would ask us what bagism is, and we’d say WE’RE ALL IN A BAG BABY!

Frost: Well now, you’ve got in a bag, you’ve got in a sack..

John : Well we got out of one bag and into the next, you just keep moving from bag to bag.

  1. Oh, next weekend is the Bozeman chapter of the Tea Party’s Madison River Float and BBQ. Should I reserve you an inner-tube from Big-O-Tire or are we going to ‘nuggle this year? I picked up a set of trunks for you at the good will in case “the airline lost them” like last time. Just because FWP dosen’t have a sign forbidding nudity, that doesn’t mean you should go au naturale. The wife didn’t approve of the “redneck yacht club” we made last float trip with all those young ladies…
