|Sep-21-18|| ||zanzibar: <<HMM> is that Pam Dawber, from Mork and Mindy? >|
Nope, it's Grace Slick!
|Sep-21-18|| ||HeMateMe: Well, it happens. People are always confusing Mindy with the San Francisco acid Queen.|
|Sep-21-18|| ||HeMateMe: hello from Lithuania!
Where was she when my high school team needed a trainer, dammit?
|Sep-22-18|| ||saffuna: <Nope, it's Grace Slick! >|
"When the truth is found to be lies..."
" We'll keep playing as soon as you give us our lead singer back. "
|Sep-22-18|| ||HeMateMe: I'll never forget a Marty Balin quote, from the time when the Jeff Airplane weren't getting along so well:|
"I wouldn't let Grace Slick give me a b___ job."
|Sep-22-18|| ||perfidious: Paul Kantner felt differently about that, I am sure.|
As did I, though she is a mite long in the tooth now.
|Sep-22-18|| ||HeMateMe: All the men in the Airplane and Starship had trouble with Slick because she had a serious drinking problem that wasn't really made public.|
Paul Kantner: "Grace is just a drunken fool." At a show in West Germany during the middle of a song GS stopped the regular song lyrics and started yelling "Hitler killed the Jews!", things like that. It was an outdoor festival and people just got up and started leaving, in droves.
I think it finally ended in the early 80s when there was some sort of violent encounter outside her house. the Police were called and they found her standing on the porch with a shotgun. It was around that time she got cleaned up.
Glad she made it through the 60s and 70s in one piece, cuz not everyone else did.
|Sep-22-18|| ||saffuna: <the Police were called and they found her standing on the porch with a shotgun. >|
Lucky that Sting was nearby.
|Sep-22-18|| ||saffuna: <All the men in the Airplane and Starship had trouble with Slick because she had a serious drinking problem that wasn't really made public.>|
That was certainly get reputation. Also profligate with money.
I saw Jefferson Airplane maybe eight times and she was all there and sang great every time.
|Sep-22-18|| ||HeMateMe: maybe it was worse in their private lives? A lot of great performers always showed up to play but were loaded on drugs or alcohol. Eric Clapton was drunk or on heroin for 10 years but somehow made it through every scheduled show. Same with Janis Joplin. Ron Wood of the Stones was drunk for 20 years.|
One comment by Slick I remember kind of sums it up. She said one morning she woke up in a car, behind the wheel, in a ditch. Said she didn't know how she got in the car, where or when, or even where she was in the moment. It was at that point she decided to get clean.
|Sep-22-18|| ||saffuna: <maybe it was worse in their private lives?>|
I assume that's how it was.
|Sep-23-18|| ||zanzibar: < "I can't drink anymore because I'm so bad at it," she admitted during her Chronicle interview. "If I had continued I'd be dead by now. There isn't any other drug that can turn you into an ass in just three hours. I love it. It's fabulous. But I just can't do it.">|
"He did a body roll on me ... it was a pretty good move"

Another doll who was handy with a firearm almost killed a record producer who was stiffing her ("Where's my money"):
"[...] asked if the attempted killing made [her] feel better to which she replied: “Oh yes. Sorry I didn’t get him.”"
(Any guesses who (before looking)?)
Some women you just don't mess around with.
|Sep-23-18|| ||HeMateMe: I thought that was Nina Simone when I saw the photo but figured a shooter would be one of those crazy rap or hip hop people, like lisa Lopes, the one who burned down a mansion in Atlanta that belonged to an NFL football player.|
Like you said, some people don't play...
guitarist Nancy Wilson of heart in front of a statue of Hannah Dustin
Dustin was kidnapped by Indians, who also killed her child. She killed (and scalped) ten of them while they slept, and escaped, as the story goes. Supposedly this is the first statue of a women erected in the USA.
back in the day, the hair days, the Wilson sisters with Stevie Nicks
I really like Heart. they didn't turn into drug addicts or boozers like so many people who get a little money in their pockets. Nicks admits in her auto bio she was on heavy benzos for 8 years, prescribed to her for back pain. She did nothing for 8 years.
|Sep-30-18|| ||zanzibar: Here's an Indian/Columbian combo in the making:|
|Oct-02-18|| ||zanzibar: Evolution leads to strange adaptions, like this example of protective coloration:|
|Oct-06-18|| ||zanzibar: Olympiad attitudes - girls bite back...
|Oct-06-18|| ||Retireborn: Who is that? Not Susan Polgar, the blonde.|
|Oct-06-18|| ||zanzibar: Not sure <RB>, it's off the Batumi twitter feed.|
But if you blow up the photo enough, you'll see she gives out her hotline phone #!
|Oct-06-18|| ||Retireborn: Thanks. Reminds me of Sheridan Smith, an actress I have admired.|
|Oct-09-18|| ||zanzibar: Nobody's identified "Sheridan" yet?!
(Just where is <Nobody> when ya need him (her?)?!)
|Oct-09-18|| ||Retireborn: She's well-known in the UK.|
|Oct-09-18|| ||zanzibar: Well, maybe the Sheridan named Smith is well known in the UK, but what about the <freaking incredible> "Sheridan"?|
I think it's <Laura Unuk>, the 2017 FIDE World Youth U18 champion, from Slovenia:
Ah the wonders of the internet (even if I'm wrong).
|Oct-09-18|| ||zanzibar: I also really like this photo from the Olympiad:|
But it needs a good caption!
|Oct-10-18|| ||HeMateMe: <But it needs a good caption!>|
"Boy, those gift bags for the FIDE convention delegates were really slim pickings...cheapskates!"
cute gale, the U18 Slovenian
Here's another Sheridan, uber MILF Nicole:
|Oct-19-18|| ||zanzibar: Tied of all that winning?
Dad's getting tired of all that losing!
