Really dug Hair album.  Takes life as it comes and that means sex only with love and she hasn't found love yet.  Doesn't need speed, acid or anything because she's naturally high.  "I really talk fast and speed would only make me talk faster."  Respects herself, her body, her mind.  "I do for it what I want it to do for me."

I   Sagittarius
Digs guitar, painting, freaking, and skiing.  Thinks God is good, religion is bad, life is good, pot is good, speed is bad, sex is good, hippies are good, civil rights rae good, politics are nowhere, art is good, love id good, Viet Nam is bad, nudity is good, the flag is a good flower, astrology helps.

Out of folk clubs with some Stanislavsky type group therapy improvisational theatre.  Lots of TV lately with the Smothers Brothers.  An album that says "Jennifer - I Can Remember Everything."  Lots and lots of childhood years full of Alice In Wonderland,  The Wizard of Oz, and Bernadette of Lourdes.  "When I saw Hair in New York all I could think was that it was like what happens when I get together with my friends - only with an audience looking on."  As for hobbies, "I hobby most with the sun and ocean."

III   Aries
After New York public schools and a year of the University of Oregon, she's been busy un-learning everything she's been taught before it's too late.  Sang with the Renaissance Chorus in New York.  Thinks Hair is scroungy.  Has a dream that one day everybody will have a flash and start tearing down skyscrapers, smashing TVs and making their nests in the trees, allowing the streets to corrode, empty.

VI   Libra
God help us, is from Arkansas.  Did a stint as Miss Arkansas a year or two ago.  Thinks "hippie" is a stupid word.  Thinks obscenity is an unhealthy concept and astrology is uncanny and fun.  As for nudity, "I must admit it's a minor problem for me, but these inhibitions are unhealthy and a result of all that Arkansas crap."

II   Scorpio
from Los Angeles, with a lot of experience in rock and roll groups, with sculpture and floral design as his hobbies.  Gene thinks HAIR is very strong musically and satirically poignant.

IX   Aquarius
A minister's son, and most recently with the Clara Ward Singers.  He's not prepared to discuss death because he's never spoken to anyone who died.

IX   Gemini

A graduate Zoologist from N.Y.U. with summer stock and two films already behind him.  Hobbies include stairstepping, playing Zorro and writing.  "I believe in good, and what I believe is good."

I   Capricorn
Hobbies are body feeling and boxing.  Thinks life is an up, death is the ultimate trip, religion is irrelevant.  God is pissed off, speed is for jets, alcohol for rednecks and sex is for everybody's children.  Thinks civil rights must be earned by being born.

VI   Aquarius

IV   Leo
From Philadelphia, with a young lifetime of experience in community theater in Tampa, Florida.  His hobbies - "all kinds of cheap thrills."  He thinks there's nothing obscene about and animal's skin, but that "war" is the most obscene word he knows.  A little tired of astrology and the question "What sign are you?"
