"All my life I just wanted to be a beatnik"

“All my life I just wanted to be a beatnik. Meet all the heavies, get stoned, get laid, have a good time. That’s all I ever wanted. Except I knew I had a good voice and I could always get a couple of beers off of it. All of a sudden someone threw me in this rock ‘n’ roll band. They threw these musicians at me, man, and the sound was coming from behind. The bass was charging me. And I decided then and there that that was it. I never wanted to do anything else. It was better than it had been with any man, you know. Maybe that’s the trouble.”
Janis Joplin

"i was full of jack london and jack kerouac"

"I sometimes think I'm so boring. I'll read an article about how Bob Dylan manipulated his image, put on these false personas, pretended he was like Woody Guthrie, and I think, what's the obligation in an interview to play into some mystique? But if you do, I think you end up dead."
"Acting was something that came very easily to me. It fell in my lap.
But the people I admired the most were not really movie stars. I was full of Jack London and Jack Kerouac."

Twice during his 20s he took a two-year leave of absence, once to go to NYU and study English (he dropped out when a part came up), and then to write a novel. In each case he says he was testing himself to see if acting was just a phase, and in each case he returned to it with modified expectations.

"I want to meet her"

Jeff encountered an even more intriguing personality during rehearsals at St. Ann's on April 24th. Trolling around backstage, he caught sight of a delicate-looking woman with pearly skin, an impish smile, and straight, shoulder-length black hair cut in Caesar-like bangs, who was setting up a buffet for the musicians. "I want to meet her," he said to Feldman, making a beeline for her.
Rebecca Moore looked over and saw an exceedingly thin kid, his face hidden by a waterfall of hair, making a miniature mountain of a sandwich and singing "If I Had a Hammer" with dirty lyrics. She had no idea what to make of him, but he certainly seemed, well, unusual.

Some times are good, some times are bad It's all a part of life -george harrison

Moment of inner freedom
when the mind is opened & the
infinite universe revealed
& the soul is left to wander
dazed & confus’d searching
here & there for teachers & friends.
jim morrison
"You need to resign yourself to the awkwardness of life. Only if you find peace within yourself will you find true connection with others." before sunrise

“Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.” Deepak Chopra

“I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.” Ana├»s Nin

“Getting away from it all,” many people want that, and of course ultimately the only way to get away from it all is to go within, now.” Eckhart Tolle

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.
A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself. d.h. lawrence

“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.” Dalai Lama

When I was young, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I’m older—see it face to face
And now I’m older—gotta get up clean the place

wardrobe & litas

after bleaching my hair, i've had to spend lots of money each month to keep being a blonde.. that means i'm over due for some shopping. most of the clothes i have managed to buy are black because of work. black, dress or skirt, and heels. i'm pretty sure i own more black outfits than a funeral director. i want color! it's time for a wardrobe cleanse and investing in some nice pieces. i'm still longing for a really nice pair of bellbottoms. and drapey dresses. with lots of patterns and different textures.
i think my next purchase will finally be ........LITAs!! i'm so behind but finally i will own them.
i thought about getting a more classic kind, but in the end i know these cosmic ones best match my personality. i can't wait to walk around in them. i wish i lived in a bigger city where it was a little more socially excepted to be unique haha. i think ill get a lot of looks with these~

if anyone has ideas of how i should wear them... please help me~!
