New Age Purgatory

Here's an extremely old strip. Kids today might be looking at those weird cases in Elder Long's hands and wonder just what they are--not to mention the machine the circular disk fits into. What's more, I doubt missionaries are listening to 20-year old music none of them liked when it was new New-Age. That said, I don't even know what kind of music missionaries might be allowed to listen to in place of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir these days. Please feel free to pepper the comment section of this post with observations on my age and lack of hipness.


  1. At the beginning of my mission we were allowed to read and listen to things that were "uplifting." Halfway through, they changed the rules so that we weren't allowed to consume anything that wasn't published by the church.

    Even "Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley" or anything published by Deseret Book wasn't allowed. New-age music would be soooooo off-limits.

    1. Yeah, my Mission President got progressively more strict with this rule on my mission too. Although, I was able to obtain his okay on a Bing Crosby Christmas album. Now whenever I hear some of Crosby's renditions of some Christmas songs, I can't help but think of Slovenia.
