Jason slips into a Vortex for THE EXPLOSIVE GENERATION and then some MARY JANE

Thursday Night is Vortex Night. A few martinis, a few beers (a delicious dark hefeweizen on tap), and a couple of movies.

First up, THE EXPLOSIVE GENERATION (1961). Controversy and a student revolt ensue when popular teacher Peter Gifford (The William Shatner) allows his home room class to talk! The scandal!

And if that wasn't enough, we follow that up with Mary Jane (1968). This time Fabian (I'm not old enough to know or care who he was) is the teacher Phil Blake, and the subject is drugs, not sex. Also, he's not quite as popular, and instead the drugged-out students frame him for pot possession, when really he was just trying to find out what the students were doing.
