1969

You can say what you like about British Invasion and Haight-Ashbury, but these two were the quintessence of hippiness. Only in retrospect can we see how vacuous that really was.



I saw this movie when it came out, and the draw for me was that Sebastian was going to be in it. I must have brought a date, but cannot for the life of me remember who she was. Too busy being sensitive to notice anything as unimportant as other people, I guess.

The Celebration was in 1969. The movie came out in 1971. I think.

I lived in the Haight in the "Summer of Love". I was a social worker for the SF Welfare Department about then too.

But I was always a bit separate from the real Hippies by music. I was into Mozart then. Still am.
