Cinemaphreak: Another result. – **baby boom** around mid-April 1978.
Heritage_Cherry: There’s a documentary on Netflix called “Hip Hop Evolution.” I highly recommend it for anyone interested in music *at all*, even if you aren’t a big hip hop fan. It’s great.
Anyway, in the first section, they talk about how this black-out contributed to the beginning of hip hop, because the kids trying to MC parties, etc, could never afford any of the good equipment they needed to develop the art form.
But after this black out, (and some less-than-legal acquisition of pro-level studio equipment) the scene started to really take off!
ciabattabing16: A documentary of the day:
It gets real dangerous real quick when there’s no power. This is one reason it’s very important people always have an emergency kit and a few days of food and water at home for storms, blizzards, unexpected blackouts, etc. Stay home, stay safe.
I_Eat_Your_Pets: What happened to the people in the subways at the time the power went out? I’d imagine that 24 hour on a subway in the summer could get dangerous very quickly…then again if the power is out, is there any risk in getting out and walking to the next station?
theartfulcodger: The Great Attractor thought it was a *helluva* joke.
middaymovies: “the get down” did an interesting episode or two about this
Communism_101: This is some r/outrun shit here. Love it
