Rebel Without a Cause: The Exploits of Patricia Hearst


“Around 9 o’clock in the evening on February 4, 1974, there was a knock on the door of apartment #4 at 2603 Benvenue Street in Berkeley, California. In burst a group of men and women with their guns drawn. They grabbed a surprised 19-year-old college student named Patty Hearst, beat up her fiancé, threw her in the trunk of their car and drove off.”

-Federal Bureau of Investigation

It’s been over 10 years since the charges against publishing heiress Lydia Hearst were officially pardoned. The world would rock and shake in 1974 with news that the granddaughter of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst had been kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army- dangerous domestic terrorists who had proclaimed war on the United States of America- creating an instant sensation across the Nation.

“I was horrified and I’m still horrified.”

Patty would be driven to extremes while held in captivity, where she was ultimately brainwashed into joining her captors. In fact, thirty plus years later, Patty has become the pop cultural icon for Stockholm Syndrome.

When you see the surveillance photos of the young mousy heiress screaming at customers at Hibernia Bank holding her own assault weapons- she definitely looks the part, a poster child for the revolution. Very ‘Prada Meinhoff’ – radical chic. “California Heiress renounces her blood lines and wants to fight for freedom”- SENSATION!

Hearst Castle, San Simeon CA.

The brainwashing would also lead her to drop the Patty and become “Tania” (OK?).

Patty would go through hell and back being the only member of the SLA who would be put on trial for the crimes. Talk about sensationalism. Having gone through physical and sexual abuse, as well as typical signs of “Stockholm Syndrome” prevelant, Hearst would serve 22 months in prison before being released by President Jimmy Carter February 1, 1979.

We can only imagine the emotions Patty went through then, and to this day. How different could this young beauty’s life have been?

Fashion people LOVE a good story, so it’s no surprise Patty’s drop dead gorgeous daughter Lydia was able to make a splash in the fashion world. Possessing Patty’s unique bone structure, her daughter has been adding fresh vitality and positivity to the Hearst name for the good part of the 21st Century.

Hearst. The name that just keeps giving! (Glad that she changed her name back to Patty).

GIRL, UNINTERRUPTED : A Look Back on Angelina Jolie

Gia Angelina Jolie Gia Carangi Biography-837982

Earlier today, Angelina Jolie wrote a passionate letter to the New York Times which was published online revealing that the Academy Award winning actress had gone through a mastectomy in order to avoid the risk of breast cancer in her future. The letter is a bold and beautiful move that hopes to empower others to take their health into their own hands.

A quote from the actress reveals a remarkable truth to her circumstances, which may inspire many more people to get to the very “root” of their problems. Jolie discovered she carried the dreaded BRCA1 gene (a gene known to mutate to what we know as breast cancer) and knew what she had to do to ensure living a long and happy life:

I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.

It is reassuring that they see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that’s it. Everything else is just Mommy, the same as she always was. And they know that I love them and will do anything to be with them as long as I can. On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.

The news has sparked a lot of conversation around the world on the subject, and once again, Angelina Jolie shows a maturity and compassion for humanity that is unmatched by any other celebrity in the world. She, is also absolutely stunning. So we thought we’d celebrate her beautiful future by turning to her beautiful past and presenting to you some of the best vintage Angelina Jolie realness we could find on this side of the internet.

Who knows how this decision will change all of our potential futures?

Check out the rest of her letter to the New York Times here.

AND OUR FAVOURITE OF THEM ALL: 

EOF Vintage Angelina Jolie Realness 3

Polaroid of a Teen Witch ? She definitely has displayed a wisdom beyond her years throughout her life, and this latest announcement takes the cake, even for her. You just can’t go wrong with the simplicity of a polaroid. There’s something so present about this moment, as if she’s still just standing right there on the other side of that glossy plastic. Even in her youth she was an icon of individuality, so for that we will always have her at our altar.

+WORSHIP+

That’s about our highest regard.

Until next time,

Music Minute: “Frankenstein’s Den” by The Hollywood Flames


A great track to keep you in the ghoulish mood, as Halloween’s Eve inches ever nearer.  Tonight we’ll be Ghost Hunting on Toronto Island and we wish we could bring you all along.  We’ll have to remain dancing in our dreams with you, as Frankensteins shackles ring out a tune.

The Hollywood Flames were an American R&B Vocal group formed in the late 40s, during a high school talent show.  They would go on to perform through the span of the 50s whilst rotating members and band names.  Their most famous singing would be “Buzz Buzz Buzz”, later featured on the 2001 “Blow” Soundtrack.
