I still see this in slow motion: the girl spun around, her long, long (just better) honey blonde hair swirling around her. She had storm-tossed, sea-green eyes, an aquiline nose, and a smile that could break your heart and fill you with joy all at the same time. She, too, was skinny, perfect, and her breasts were really there, quite a handful too. I was devastated. She was the most beautiful creature I had ever laid eyes on, she had a great story, knew amazing people (…)” - Patti D’Arbanville

We went to recording sessions and over to George Harrison’s house. We went to happening clubs and hung out with Paul McCartney and danced with Ringo and Maureen. I was hanging with the Beatles! We were taking acid with Brian Jones and smokin’ hash with George and Pattie Harrison.

I’ve been exposed to every kind of music there is since I was a baby girl. My great-great-grandmother was a classical violinist, my great-grandfather was a concert pianist; and my grandfather played with all the big bands and wrote boogie-woogie. I miss the sound of a guitar or piano in my house. I miss the music vibe all around. After all, I was right in the middle of the revolution that changed the world.

I fucking hate that weird stereotype around women and especially female characters where people automatically assume that mean and abusive means volatile and that if you’re free spirited and volatile it means that you’re a mean person and manipulative and you don’t like monogamy and you like sleeping around. 

Its some weird ass stereotype among women. I am sure that shit happens but not all the time. I’d say I am a very free spirited, volatile, and difficult woman but I am not abusive. I put everyone else I care about before myself and I hate, hate hurting others. And I am pretty fucking monogamous (not implying that its bad not to be, just say that not all of us aren’t). Not every woman who is like that will automatically all be the same. Its one of the reasons I love Buffy Summers and Veronica Mars. They really take those kinds of stereotypes to task.
