I feel truly blessed (in the universalist sense - fortuitous timing) that Bond and Beatles came into my consciousness in 1963, my first teenaged year. I have been obsessed with both ever since. I really believe they both have had a significant effect on more than just pop culture. I tell my kids that the modern era began on November 22, 1963, with the tragedy of that day. Something 'broke' that day and something new replaced it. [I realize how inane that sounds, but I actually believe it!] The turbulent 60s were the result. Truly a 'paradigm shift'.
