What a difference makeup and hair can make! I wanted to try out a 60's inspired makeup for a very long time now (especially because of the lovely @bttywt who is the queen of the 60's) but I was always a bit afraid. Now I finally did it and I love how it came out, considering it's my first try 🧡
Another thing I always wanted to try is bangs - or well something similar because I don't want to cut my hair 😁 So I grabbed a hair rat and created this hairstyle 🙌🏻
What do you think about this look? 🤔🧡

“Marty Ransohoff has to sell Roman on the idea of even considering me for the film (The Fearless Vampire Killers). He arranged for the two of us to have dinner. Roman never said a word to me—we just sat there and ate and he just looked at me. Then we had a second dinner meeting and the same thing happened. Later he took me to his apartment. He lit some candles then excused himself and left me standing there alone. A short while later he came storming into the room like a madman and he was wearing a Frankenstein mask. I let out a blood-curdling scream and while I was still crying from the scare, he was calling Ransohoff to tell him that the part in the film was mine.”—Sharon Tate, 1967

Ecco il regalo che ho scelto per mio padre per la festa del papà di domani: radersi accuratamente, con pennello, schiuma e rasoio è uno dei suoi piccoli piaceri quotidiani. Mi piace pensare che questa abitudine sia legata a un episodio del passato: nato in Belgio da genitori italiani, alla fine degli anni '60 era rappresentante degli studenti - lui, uno straniero - in un collegio che ospitava 600 ragazzi. Per andare contro alcune regole che non condividevano, tutti i ragazzi degli ultimi anni (lui per primo) si erano fatti crescere la barba: era proibito, ma I ragazzi fecero in modo che fosse sempre ordinata e tagliata di fresco. Una contestazione rispettosa, per attirare l'attenzione sulle loro richieste. È uno dei tanti aneddoti sulla vita della mia famiglia ai tempi dell'emigrazione in Belgio: l'ho sentito raccontare innumerevoli volte, ma non mi stanco mai di ascoltarlo di nuovo. Auguri, papà!
Here is the gift I chose for my father for tomorrow's Father's Day: shaving carefully, using a brush, shaving foam and a razor blade is one of his daily pleasures. I like to think this habit to be linked to an episode from the past: born in Belgium from Italian parents, at the end of the 1960s he was a student representative - he, a foreigner - in a school hosting 600 boys. To go against some rules that they didn't share, all the boys of the last years (including himself, as a leader) had grown a beard. This was forbidden, but they used to take care of it so carefully that it was always well shaved and freshly cut. A respectful challenge, to draw attention to their demands. It is one of the many anecdotes about the life of my family in times of emigration: I have heard it countless times, but I never get tired of listening to it again. All my love, dad! #storiedifamiglia#familystories#rasatura#shaving#fathersday#festadelpapà#belgio#belgium#italiansdoitbetter#italianinelmondo#annisessanta#sixties#fattiraccontare#padreefiglia#fatheranddaughter#bottegaverde#barbershop#barberia

"On the first day of filming 12 Plus 1 (1969) on location in London's Jermyn Street, Sharon Tate came up and introduced herself. She said, quietly, 'I must tell you something before we start working together. I can't act, but I somehow get by without anyone realizing, so don't worry.'
Actually, Sharon turned out to share a distinction with Lena Horne - they were the only two performers I ever knew who were entirely 'natural' before the camera. Everybody else, method actors (and T-T too!) automatically took on a different stance and manner, as soon as the cameras started rolling.
So there were no difficulties with Sharon. We were like a double act. She was nice, intelligent and pretty. I wish I had been able to see the finished film. I've never been able to catch it."- Terry Thomas, from his 1990 autobiography, "Terry Thomas Tells Tales"
These photos were taken on the set of "12 Plus 1" in 1969
The second photo is of Sharon and Terry Thomas during one of their scenes together.
Anthem Of The Sun (1968) was The Grateful Dead's second studio album, or rather, an experiment of mixing studio- and live performances (on top of each other!), as the band had not been very happy with their first release (see my post of August 19, 2018). It was the band's (almost eternal) problem of how to transfer the atmosphere of their live performances to a studio recording. With the help of poet Robert Hunter, soundtechnician Dan Healy and new band members drummer Mickey Hart and keyboardist Tom Constanten, the Dead delivered an album that in 1968 was received as groundbreaking, or, as Jerry Garcia said, '(parts of the album) were far out, even too far out'. Producing Anthem Of The Sun was later included in the British series Classic Albums, with the title Anthem To Beauty (i.e. the production process of Anthem Of The Sun, Aoxomoxoa, Workingman's Dead and American Beauty, the band's studio albums 2-5). Listen to That's It For The Other One (Parts I-IV), which starts as a folkrock song and ends like a John Cage composition, on spotify playlist 'instagram shortcutsinrock'. This track mentions (amongst others) 'Cowboy Neal At The Wheel On A Bus To Never Ever Land', i.e. Neal Cassidy driving Ken Kesey's Acid Test bus (see my post of April 30, 2018) - Cassidy who of course was Dean Moriarty in Jack Kerouac's On The Road (see April 25, 2018) and the Dead was Kesey's house band at the Acid Test events. #thegratefuldead#gratefuldead#anthemofthesun#1968#1960s#60s#sixties#classicrock#rockhistory#musichistory#spotify#folkrock#psychedelicrock#jamrock#roberthunter#danhealy#mickeyhart#tomconstanten#jerrygarcia#classicalbums#thatsitfortheotherone#nealcassidy#kenkesey#jackkerouac#ontheroad#johncage
Rumi said that what you lose comes round to you in another form. Even after two years of absence, she is present: in our conversation, in the landscape of the everyday, in the joy and the sadness, and in the beauty of precious memory. She loved enough in her short lifetime to last far beyond mine. .
Jackpots - Jack in the box. Sublime pop psych from this Swedish group on Sonet. This 1968 LP is their second and features several covers but very much in their own style. They even cover "Shadows and Reflections" and I think The Action would be a good comparison. #psychedelic#sixties#psych#vinyl#sweden

Wallace Collection- Laughing Cavalier, Belgian band based in Britain's first LP. Recorded at Abbey Road. Daydream was the big hit but there's lots of great tracks on this record. Well worth seeking out. #psychedelic#vinyl#psych#sixties#dutch
The La De Das - The Happy Prince. The terms grail or lost classic are employed so often today that it seems pointless to use them. But, in my opinion, this Kiwi bands forgotten 1969 LP deserves to be up there with Odyssey and Ogdens. High praise? Maybe, but despite the pretentious narration between the tracks, the songs are just plain beautiful and the album sticks with you like toffee treacle. It received a muted reception on release and now it and even the later CD version are very hard to find. Try YouTube for a listen. A popsike wonder from down under. 😄😃😊 #vinyl#psychedelic#sixties#psych

The Hollies- Butterfly, Australian World Record Club edition with a different cover. The Hollies are a much underrated band, and a great album. #vinyl#psychedelic#sixties
The Grateful Dead
(Warner Bros. W 1689) Original 1967 US 🇺🇸 Mono
The Grateful Dead is the self titled debut album by Grateful Dead. Released in March 1967.
Review from Endless Trip
When assessing the Grateful Dead’s records, the most important thing is the ability to separate them from their fans. This first album came before the Deadhead phenomenon, so it’s a unique item in their catalogue. Even so, it’s the epitome of the real problem they’d always have, which is that they were a concert-focused band who were never going to have the same kind of effect or appeal on record as they did in person. A great concert is rarely the same thing as a great record. On the plus side, there’s some exciting guitar on the record, and you’ll be surprised that they could put together as good a two minute garage-raver as ‘The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)’. It sure is weird, though, to hear them play a song like the speedy boogie blues / pop-song mix ‘Beat It On Down The Line’, and a lot of the blues-based songs are pretty substandard. The 10-minute closer ‘Viola Lee Blues’, which has a jam worthy of The Butterfield Blues Band or Quicksilver Messenger Service, is the only song they thought was truly representative of them at the time, but almost everything here has a certain Je ne sais quoi that clearly identifies them as the work of no other artist. Considering what they would soon become, it’s even odder to hear their personality come through the mix of garage-rock, folk-rock, quasi-Yardbirds blues rave ups, long guitar freakouts and jug band songs. Given the tentative nature of the recordings, the weak vocals and the short supply of quality songwriting, it’s a mild failure, but not at all an uninteresting one.
