Terry Southern Memorial Photos Flowers Edit Share Birth: May 1, 1924 Alvarado Johnson County Texas, USA Death: Oct. 29, 1995 New York New York County (Manhattan) New York, USA American Author, Essayist, Screenwriter. Noted for his distinctive satirical style, he was part of the Paris postwar literary movement in the 1950s and a companion to Beat writers in Greenwich Village. He was also at the center of Swinging London in the sixties and helped to change the style and substance of American films in the 1970s. In the 1980s he wrote for Saturday Night Live and lectured on screenwriting at several universities in New York. Southern's dark and often absurdist style of broad yet biting satire helped to define the sensibilities of several generations of writers, readers, directors and film goers. He is credited by journalist Tom Wolfe as having invented New Journalism with the publication of "Twirling at Ole Miss" in Esquire in 1962, and his gift for writing memorable film dialogue was evident in Dr. Strangel . ...
Part II: "From the Suburbs to Swinging London: An Artist's Journey" One day, sitting in the coffee bar with Linda, Mum heard song on the juke box called “Daydream Believer.” “Linda told me it was from a TV show called The Monkees, and that they were idolised around the world—they were about as big as The Beatles,” she says. “I always missed the show because it was on Saturdays, and I was teaching dancing to pay for my own dance lessons.” “But that’s what my headmaster thought I was—a Daydream Believer—and listening to that song at that moment with my best friend and a cup of coffee in hand, I realised what a good thing that I was,” she says. Months later, Mum was lying on her bed, flipping through her older sister’s teen magazine. She saw a story about a young man from England who was in The Monkees, and he was describing his life in Hollywood. “I remember in particular being very impressed, but somewhat confused, by the circular bed he said that he had. It seemed incredibly os ...

Guitar Player, February 1997 Sunshine Supermen - Britain's Psychedelic Guitar Wizards By James Rotundi It was the era of dolly girls and miniskirts, freak-outs and flowered blouses, spontaneous "happenings" and all-night raves, and "Swinging London" was at the heart of it. While kids in San Francisco were grooving to Moby Grape and the Grateful Dead's lysergic deconstruction of jugband blues and Okie folk, clogging up to Haight -Ashbury and adjusting their sights to the new cosmic consciousness through LSD, British kids were busy reassembling R&B, rock, pop and folk culture into something that would totally eclipse their previous slavish imitation of American forms. Though U.S. groups like Love, the Beach Boys, and Velvet Underground and the Byrds sent the first whiffs of the new musical contraband across the water, young English bands in '65 and '66 liberated and empowered by the success of the Beatles, the Kinks and the Who, took the new music's open-endedness as an opportunity to finally act, sing and ...

'Burning Down the House', a portrait by David LaChapelle of the late Alexander McQueen and his 'muse' Isabella Blow has been acquired by the National Portrait Gallery. The double portrait of McQueen and Blow was originally published in the March 1997 'Swinging London' edition of Vanity Fair. Shot at Hedingham Castle in Essex on 1 December 1996, the photograph shows McQueen in the foreground brandishing a flaming torch, accompanied by a playful Blow, with the castle dramatically burning in the background. Both were dressed in McQueen, with Blow also sporting a Philip Treacy hat, and the article named them 'The Provocateurs'. At the time of the shoot McQueen was just 27 years old and had recently debuted his first couture collection for the House of Givenchy. Blow, 38 at the time of the shoot, was considered McQueen's muse. www.davidlachapelle.com
HISTORY OF THE MINISKIRT Mary Quant ran a popular clothes shop in Kings Road, Chelsea, London, called Bazaar, from which she sold her own designs. In the late 1950s she began experimenting with shorter skirts, culminating in the creation of the miniskirt in 1965—one of the defining fashions of the decade.[2][3]Quant named the miniskirt after her favourite make of car, the Mini.[4] Owing to Quant's position in the heart of fashionable "Swinging London", the miniskirt was able to spread beyond a simple street fashion into a major international trend. The style came into prominence when Jean Shrimpton wore a short white shift dress, made by Colin Rolfe, on 30 October 1965 at Derby Day, first day of the annual Melbourne Cup Carnival in Australia, where it caused a sensation. THE SIN OF BATH-SHEBA 2 Samuel 11:2 We hear a great deal about the sin of David, but seldom does anyone mention the sin of Bath-sheba. And it is true enough that David's sin was very great and Bath-sheba's very small. David's sin was de ...
Quentin College was a place that I had taken a fancy to when I was studying for my doctorate at University and was very pleased when I received a letter asking me to attend an inter-view. I was one of twenty there that day and I progressed into the next interview of ten and finally for a third visit of just three of us for a position in such a prestigious college. I was the last to be interviewed and I went into the Dean's office to find two other people sitting there along with the Dean himself who had been present at my two previous visits. He was sitting behind his large desk and flanked by a man on his right and a woman on his left. I knew of them through my studies and the newspapers but waited until I was formally introduced to them before speaking. `Sit down Dr Smith,' Dean Ainsworth said, indicating the chair placed before the desk. `I am pleased to see that you made it to the last three and through your work, I'm sure you know Mrs Cynthia Carrington who is attached to the Department of Education ...
I  Back in our college rooms, it was nice to be alone once again with my husband Kit but I did miss the girlish laugh and humour of Edward and the fun of us dressing up as maidens. But the holiday was behind us and we had lots to do in preparing for the new school year as well as the cleaning out of the pool. This was a matter of dragging out what new under-growth had started to sprout at the bottom. We couldn't empty it but did the best we could as well as letting fresh water run through as though it was part of the normal river before closing up the wooden sluice gates. The tents were erected again in different spots and Kit and I had two weeks of us sleeping in our tent and having lovely sex together after our day's labours. There was one thing that occurred during this time that both pleased and displeased me. My book on the Political History of France had just been published, which pleased me to receive my free copies. What displeased me was the delayed time of this happening for it meant that many ...
I got to Penton Hall at about three thirty in the afternoon and hadn't known that Kit lived in such a fine place. Well did live, for he seemed to spend more time at the college than anywhere else, but it was his real home. The Hall itself was Georgian but built in a rather modest fashion of only two floors and none of the columns at the front that some had added in Regency times. It was about half a mile from the road and it didn't have big stone pillars to mark the entrance but more of just a gap between low walls with only a small sign to give the place its name. We crossed a cattle grid there so they obviously had some wild life in the grounds and I learned that where this was, were some sensors that alerted the Hall that a vehicle was approaching for as we came to a halt outside the main door, Kit was already there to greet me. We shook hands though I think he would have liked to kiss me but with the taxi driver and now a manservant being there, I knew he would wait till I was shown into my room befor ...

Lyre Heritage News 236 “The Concertina” My Aunt Kathleen Keohan, aged 3, (later Mrs. M O’Hara, who later played the organ in the Friary Church for years) Photo Keohan Dungarvan When I was a little girl I can remember my father Tom Keohan playing the little instrument held in the above photo by his youngest sister in our home. He was quite a good performer and used to swing the instrument in a circular movement as he rendered popular songs of the day. In later years I wondered what became of this instrument. A few years ago I got a notion to buy a concertina as the tone produced by it was so sweet and somehow melancholy when slow airs were played on it. The music sessions in the Lyre Heritage centre had several visitors who played one and I envied their prowess. In Dublin one week I went to Walton’s Music store and purchased what was described to me as a good starter instrument and highly recommended by Comhaltas musicians. To tell the truth the limited memory of my fathers concertina and the reali ...

DATING TIPS: "Don't dish it out if you can't take it." Originally this quote referred to food. In other words, don't give food to others that you are unwilling to eat. People who do not adequately consider the consequences of their decisions and behaviors always pay a far greater price than they are able to measure. Even more sadly, what is done cannot be undone. Where we will never escape difficulty in life, we constantly invest in either good or bad. We get what we give.

I found an item that may link The Meers Sisters to Georges Seraut's painting The Circus. from How things work The Circus by Georges Seurat "In his last large-scale painting, the 1890-1891 work The Circus, Georges Seurat selected a subject that had long been popular among the Impressionists: the lively public entertainment at the Cirque Fernando." RidersFrom the N. Y. Dramatic News, 1891. Reprinted in Circus Scrap Book, No. 10 (Apr), 1931 "What lady riders do clean "jumps up?"? Emma Bell, the Meers Sisters (Rose and Lillie), Rosita La Plata and several others in Europe. - What are the particular specialties of the different riders.

This trick is done by me, and I was the first, and, as far as I know, the only one that ever did it. - What is the greatest number of somersaults done in string?

Chopper deal: CBI gets documents from Italy Press Trust of India | 24-Feb 18:02 PM New Delhi: Moving forward in its probe into alleged kickbacks in the VVIP helicopter deal, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has procured some documents from Italian authorities in Milan that may help it investigating whether any Indian had received bribes to swing the deal in favour of AgustaWestland. Highly-placed sources in the probe agency said on Sunday that one of the members of the CBI team who returned Sunday morning from Milan had got some of the documents from the Italian prosecutor regarding the controversial Rs 3,600 crore deal, which would now be examined in the next couple of days. The sources said a Preliminary Enquiry (PE) would be initiated in the next couple of days after examining the documents received from the Italian authorities. It has been alleged that kickbacks to the tune of Rs 362 crore were allegedly paid to help secure the deal in favour of the Anglo-Italian firm. While declining to reve ...

I hightailed it out of Bangkok as soon as physically possible. By 7.30am the day after arriving in Thailand I was on a bus headed for the boarder. Cue the usual boarder visa scams of countries so familiar with tourism that they know they can squeeze money out of us pretty much at will. I already knew that paying in Bhat and the lazy ease of having it all taken care of for me whilst I sat in the back garden of a side of the road restaurant in the shade drinking a coke and eating noodles was going to cost me almost double what it normally would if I was going to pay in dollars and do all the queuing at the actual border myself. I would have taken the more arduous road to being allowed into Cambodia, but I missed the currency exchanged by 5 minutes in Bangkok (see previous entry). And I wasn’t aware you could change money at the border. But oh well. It’s only money and I was a mere few hours from seeing my little sister who I hadn’t seen in months! Until I was a couple of hours from Siem Reap I think i ...

I remember the first time I met Joseph Benjamin. He had requested for a publicist to handle his thriving brand, and a friend gave him my bb pin. We chatted for a few weeks because he was in London at the time. When he returned we had a meeting at Protea Hotel in Ikeja GRA. Except from the life tips I received from my dear brother as a growing woman for many years, that meeting with Joseph Benjamin was the most instructive and awe-inspiring conversation I’ve ever had. Last year Joseph Benjamin won all the high-status awards from BON to Afro Hollywood Awards, even the stylish and coveted FAB Awards. So when we sat down for six hours at Protea and he told me: “I used to be a conductor in this Lagos; I was a security guard; I sold ladies’ shoes in Balogun market, and was also a waiter at a restaurant…” Everything I learnt as a child all came back to me- If you dream, and you work hard at it – never giving up, and you believe, you will succeed! Happy Sunday!

A new 'swinging' scene is developing in London with these 'new British Invasion' artists,models,actors with their partys etc.
A US publication called Ugly Things has commissioned me to write a series of brief articles concerning aspects of my musical (if that is the word) life. Below is the first of these:- The Group That Dare Not Speak Its Name: Alan Clayson recounts a rock odyssey through a 1960s that was far from Swinging Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven' - William Wordsworth The distance from Swinging London to Fleet, the glum Hampshire country town where I grew up, was measurable in years rather than miles. As late as 1969, when my hair just about touched the collar - with ears still visible- my Dad was still wondering why I wanted to look like 'a ruddy poet'. Six years earlier, two pairs of hostile eyes had studied my rapt attention during The Beatles' debut on ITV’s Sunday Night At The London Palladium. 'This isn't good music, Alan,' declared Mum from her armchair, 'Don’t get too interested in it'. That was enough for Ace and the Crescents to come into existence a few months later ...
From Led Zep official forums: Programming alert: Later tonight or early Monday morning, depending on where you live, Turner Classic Movies is airing Antonioni's "BLOW-UP", uncut, unedited, and in the proper frame ratio...and unlike so many other movie channels that used to be commercial-free, with no commercial interruptions. Filmed in 1965-66 at the height of Swinging 60s London and starring David Hemmings and a trio of Swinging London birds: Vanessa Redgrave, Jane Birkin and Sarah Miles. This is the film that features the Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck era Yardbirds playing "Stroll On" in a club and Beck going bonkers. Yes, you may have seen this clip on YouTube or somewhere else, but to really see it properly, you should watch it in its proper context within the movie. Plus, you also get the bonus of the infamous tennis scene. "Blow-Up" was highly influential, anticipating many of the later paranoia-cinema of the 70s such as "The Conversation" and "Three Days of the Condor"...you can even see some influence on ...
REVIEW © SMG Newspapers, 2001. Reproduced with permission. The heady ferment of Sixties culture: the sharp-suited world of cockney hustlers, the intoxicating buzz of Swinging London in its heyday - fashion, theatre, film and above all the great pop music, pulsing through Soho clubs, Chelsea coffee bars, Carnaby Street boutiques and decadent country-house weekends. In his Diary of a Teddy Boy: A Memoir of the Long Sixties, Mim Scala the Pied Piper leads us on a kaleidoscopic dance down the years, from ice-cream salesman in the East End of London, to gambler, agent, record-producer and hippie traveller. Wherever the action was, Mim Scala was there. Riding high on a roller-coaster of flickering fame and fortune, Mim entertains Diana Dors, hosts gaming parties with Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud, evades the wrath of the Kray Twins, bumps into Bill Burroughs in Morocco, hires Dennis Hopper, cajoles Jean-Luc Godard into filming the Rolling Stones, turns down the musical Hair on the say-so of Salvador Dali, sig ...

Big Jim Sullivan Popular studio session guitarist Big Jim Sullivan, 71, an acclaimed session guitarist who played on dozens of rock 'n' roll and pop hits in the 1960s and '70s, died Tuesday at his home in West Sussex, England, said his wife, Norma. He suffered from heart disease and diabetes. Sullivan learned guitar as a teenager and turned professional when he was 16. He played with many of the biggest names in British pop at the height of the "Swinging London" era. Along with Jimmy Page, who would later star in Led Zeppelin, Sullivan was one of the most in-demand session guitarists of his era. His website lists sessions with Tom Jones, Marianne Faithfull, David Bowie, Gerry and the Pacemakers and many others. He claimed to have played on more than 1,000 singles that entered the British charts. Sullivan, known for his mastery of a wide variety of styles, also toured with Tom Jones' band from 1969 to '74, playing in Las Vegas casino hotels and on television shows. Los Angeles Times

I particularly like this clip because 1) "Song of a Baker" is an awesome mod anthem; 2) it is possibly the worst live synch with a recording I've ever seen (illicit pharmaceuticals may have had a hand in it); and 3) it is Swinging London's answer to Where's Waldo: see if you can spot in the audience Charlie Watts & Brian Jones (Rolling Stones), Keith Moon, Peter Townsend & John Entwhistle (the Who); Jeff Beck (Yardbirds, etc.):
Well before he became the darling of Swinging London (viz 'Blow Up'), David Bailey was a serious journalist-photographer.
