I love these!  More baseball players should have handlebar mustaches and it’d be great to see some female players!

It’s summer so I’ll definitely be spending some time in LA. I don’t particularly care for sunglasses, but I will definitely have a few pairs of these to take with me.

Rebellious youth, loud jazz, sex, drugs, and cigarettes! Let’s jive Daddy-O! Opening credits from Edmond T Gréville’s 1960 British film “Beat Girl”. Gillian Hills is SMOKING in this clip!

Beat poet William Pryor had some amazing photos of him and his friends running around Europe in the 1960’s. They are definitely very cool.
