Christine Rosamond and I grew up in Oakland. Our Godfather was a Oakland cop who duked it out with the Hell’s Angels at their headquarters. Ken Kesey, and the poet Michael McClure, hung with the Angels. I met both men. Michael was a good friend of Jim Morrison. All these people, are dead, or will be soon. I have no problem with Lara getting on a hog and throwing the bird to whomever she wants. I think she’s BAD. She is my vehicle out of my prison assholes put Christine and I in! These Dark Ones are too chicken shit to write a poem, or, be an actor. Lara’s got guts! She’s my Winged Muse!
The top pic is of Garth Benton in a movie, and beneath him is Rick Partlow in The Gambler. Both actors were married to Christine. I don’t need anyone’s stamp of approval. Victoria Bond is not only a champion equestrian, who likes to cop a feel, now an then, she likes to go riding with her biker gang ‘Dante’s Infernos’ when they go to ‘The Devil Be Damned Poetry Slam, Down at the Dock of the Bay’.
Fuck you all! If you can’t write a poem, you can’t hang with Victoria’s London gang. I was at the first Human Be-in with Nancy. What the fuck are we waiting for – Trump to shut his god damn mouth!
Like a boat mid-air
The liners boiled their pastures:
The liners of flesh,
The Arctic steamers
Brains the size of a teacup
Mouths the size of a door
The sleek wolves
Mowers and reapers of sea kine.
THE GIANT TADPOLES
(Meat their algae)
Like sheep or children.
Shot from the sea’s bore.
Turned and twisted
Flung blood and sperm.
Gnashed at their tails and brothers
Cursed Christ of mammals,
Snapped at the sun,
Ran for the Sea’s floor.
No angels dance those bridges.
OH GUN! OH BOW!
There are no churches in the waves,
No passages or crossings
From the beasts’ wet shore.
Similarly themed gatherings had occurred earlier in Golden Gate Park and the Panhandle. Bill Graham had operated the Fillmore Auditorium for more than a year by early 1967, hosting ticketed events with many of the Be-In participants, including the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, the Sons of Champlin and poets Allen Ginsberg and Michael McClure.
But the Be-In had all that for free, drawing the biggest, most eclectic counterculture crowd to date. The Hells Angels were invited by Ginsberg and the organizers to act as “guardian angels,” providing security and keeping the music equipment safe.

For the first time, the flower children (the term hippie was not yet in wide usage) had created something too big for the square world to ignore.
“Afterwards, I knew that there was an actual day, Jan. 14, 1967, on which I was initiated into this new society, this new religion, as surely as if I had been initiated into the Ghost Dance Religion of the American Indians,” wrote Helen Swick Perry in her 1970 nonfiction account, “The Human Be-In.” “Retrospectively, I feel quite certain that the Be-In also marked the beginning of nationwide attention.”
Inspired by people and stories, this week we have a new one to add to the Spotted Style archives! We spotted Lara Roozemond between the pages of the fashion magazines Elle and Glamour. No surprise that she grabbed our attention with her beauty and outstanding look. The Dutch model is 19 years old, born and living in Amsterdam and she is one of the faces of Touche Models. Lara jumped into the fashion world at the age of 16 when she was scouted at her home town and it did not take long until her first fashion trip to Paris followed!
