why d'ya do it?

I haven't seen some of these Marianne Faithfull images before.


 This one is by Robert Mapplethorpe, the photographer of Patti Smith fame.


"but as God said,
crossing his legs,
I see where I have made plenty of poets
but not so very much

cold english blood runs hot

I understand why it's tasteless for Marsha Hunt to sell Mick Jagger's old love letters. I also realize that this post is feeding into hackneyed tabloid reporting.

That being said, I love reading about this kind of stuff. Also, I think this line from one Mick Jagger billet-doux is absolutely beautiful:

"If I sailed with you around the world, all my sails would be unfurled."

If I wrote like that in my personal notes, I don't think I'd mind them going public. And anyway, if Mick didn't want anyone to see the letters, why couldn't he just buy them himself?

In other news, I wished I looked this good in a dress:
