moi said...

von LX: I'm so sorry! And I thought our countries were allies! Jefferson Airplane, "White Rabbit."

Karl said...

Good morning Moi,

Now that's music! She sure looks young. Grace and Janis, talk about getting a motor running.

czar said...

One of my all-time favorite clips. Thanks, Moi.

nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!happy Friday.

Karl: Grace was a beautiful gal with a major voice. For that, I'll forgive her the outfit.

Czar: Yes, über cool, even thought it's a hippie fest. I forget how good they were. Before they went Starship. That was mostly unforgivable, as was Slick's solo effort.

Boxer: In my next life, I'll have pipes.

czar said...

The first Slick and Starship albums, which were basically Airplane-Dead studio sessions (along with David Crosby's If Only I Could Remember My Name), I thought were quite good enough to forgive all the sci-fi crap. After that, embarrassment.

If you want to know how good they were, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLRX7bZH41g. Rooftop concert, before the Beatles. Grace is, again, beautiful. And note the bass work.

PS: In the realm of equal opportunity, the czarina was mighty taken with that shot of Jorma Kaukonen at the beginning of "White Rabbit." I don't think Jack Casady, however, ever qualified as a teen idol.

Aunty Belle said...


I'se testy wif' ya Moi.

Looky, ain't thar some tacit rules of engagement fer blogggers?

How come ya git a good jaw goin (@ oct 22) but doan give Aunty no "yoo-hooo". Now I missed the fun (assumin' I could done nuthin', as I wuz off tiltin' at windmills in the land of Nod)

Jes' in case ya's dyin' to know a week later what I woulda said, DITTO KARL.

Mitt ain't mah man,he ain't conservative. BUT, people people, it slows the train to fascism--

we gotta live to fight another day, spend 4 years findin' a decent candidate.

Grace were a purty thang.

moi said...

Czar: There are a few photos in which he looks semi-hot.

Diana: waves

Aunty: Sorry you missed out on the fun, but we still have 11 days to go! I would say that electing Mitt only slows a certain car on the train to fascism. Fascism is neither right nor left. It just IS. As for Grace, yes, she was stunning. And it's one of my favorite names for a woman.

czar said...

Moi: In which Jack Casady looks hot? Before Photoshop?

Unfortunately, "Grace" was also the czarina's first choice for a daughter's name. Not only did we not have daughters, but Grace Land is nothing to do to a child. Explains why our first female animal after childbearing was named Gracie.

moi said...

Czar: Grace LAND! Bwahahahahahaha!
