Lazy Sunday

I also bought A clockwork orange, a book on micheal X, Patti Boyd and a book on feminism in Australia.
so far I've read into Micheal X and man it's such a dead read, I recommend it greatly - especially if you're into British cultural history.
I've also been playing this Billy Cotton record on repeat that I found at a garbage store. It's great quality and I have recently been obsessed with twisting to Billy Cotton and the Beatles 'Meet the Beatles' record - early, buddy holly stuff.

I love these shots - the hair, the make up, the rock n roll bikini!

On Saturday in Sydney the colour parade is happening! Organised by a friend of mine, the colour parade is 'A gathering of kook and beauty, colour (and neutral tones) absurdity + fearless expressions of joy' If you're in the area, come along! It'll be a riot! (not a literal riot.. we don't want any trouble ya hooligans!) Facebook: Colour Parade!

It's my life and it's my wife

This past year I have been completely fascinated with herion addiction. I think my fascination stems from the idea of destroying ones-self from the inside out, and how much addiction can control a person's life. In episode 12 season 4 of Mad Men, the show touches on the prominence of heroin addicts in sixties New York. In the 60s, coming from a decade of prozac-nation, heroin as well as LSD were still quite 'new' mainstream drugs. People were only starting to become aware of the effects of heroin addiction. However it was extremely prominent in New York at the time. Reading this analysis of the Mad Men episode, I became aware of this LIFE article highlighting the life of two heroin junkies in New York in the sixties.

I would give my left tit to old copies of LIFE magazines
