Before the Hippies ruined the 1960s!

I like to imagine this is Joan Holloway's "Divorce the Damned Doctor" party! It's actually a home movie of some hepcats and kittens twisting the year away. I wish I could just crawl right into this clip and live here forever! It also features Joe Dodo and the Groovers doing one of my all-time favorite songs-- "GROOVY" (of course)!!

Brava Mavis Brava !!

I forgot that song -- love it.

I never knew how much I resented the British invasion until now.

Oh, but I quite fancy the Brits! No, it's the filthy, let-it-all-hang-out, space-jam gyrating, tie-dye donning, patchouli-drenched hippies that really get my knickers in a twist!

Ah, drunks in front of the Xmastree ... it actually makes me sort of feel, well, a bit of the Holiday spirit.

Wow what a swinging movie!

Just goes to show how desperately the Americans needed us to invade in the 60s: we needed to save you from this! ;)

Just kidding, of course. :)

Damn, I hate hippies. Everything went to hell after Kennedy was shot: fashion, hair, music, movies.

Well, OK, there were some nice civil rights advances . . . and I do like my iPod and YouTube and my DVDs . . . but why do we all have to LOOK so squalid?
