last night i had the great pleasure of attending the premier of the above advertised documentary in los angeles. pamela des barres and several of her cohorts- including miss mercy, who i think may've been the best dressed member of the GTOs- were in attendance and i couldn't help but approach pamela after the movie to gush at her a bit, about how much i love her books & writing style (which is so pulsing with energy, sweetness & adoration, you wouldn't believe). the documentary will be on vh1 starting 12/15, i believe, so do try and catch it- read the book too, because it's a much more extended take on all these ladies & their adventures, plus some.
it is really beautiful to see women united by passion, sharing their stories with an enraptured, appreciative audience.

(the modern-day ladies of sf in particular owe some huge debt to these ladies for their now oft-imitated style!)
