Something Better

It is absurd to live in a cage.

I love this Marianne Faithfull performance. This and Taj Mahal are my favorites from Rolling Stones Rock 'n' Roll Circus, 1968.

Really? What is it that you love about it?

I have to admit that I've never seen her young -- saw her "not young" at the Ark many years ago (old location) in all her leather mini-skirt raspiness, so this is odd... The wisp of a person in the video doesn't even seem to be an echo of the woman I saw live.

And in this performance,what is with the squashed boobs and the awkward left hand position that never changes? Distracting.

I do like her haircut, though. I think I need that cut.

Hmmm... I seem a bit overcritical today. The world is currently disappointing me.

I love the song!

I think her boobs seem more suspended than squashed. I didn't notice the left hand position, but I think she seems kind of nervous about being the center of attention and I find that kind of endearing. Especially compared to the over showiness of today's "entertainers". Also, she was having sex with Mick Jagger at his pinnacle of hotness, maybe his sperm was even inside her at that very moment. Her clavicles are lovely and defined!

The hair, not crazy about the hair.
