The Harrad Experiment

um, do you know about this movie? I don't know where to start. The Harrad Experiment , okay... here goes, it's a crazy movie from 1973 about some sort of sex college where paired with a 'roommate' of the opposite sex and are expected to explore your sexuality together, but also just like go to normal classes and stuff. First of all the unfortunately the version I saw is some lame edited version available from Netflix which has a lot of the nudity and scandal removed, but I think I still got the gist of it. Basically this movie stars Don Johnson and Tippi Hendren. Now if you're like me, and I'm guessing you are, you read Pamela Des Barres classic groupie memoir I'm With The Band* in your youth and you therefore know that after Pam sexed all kinds of insane rock stars like say, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Page and Mick Jagger she went on to have a serious committed relationship with Don Johnson. Now if you're like me, and once again I'm guessing you are, your teenage brain probably thought "That douche from Miami Vice! Why Pam? Why?!?!". Now I think these stills from The Harrad Experiement will help you to understand that Don Johnson was insanely smoking hot. Now back up, did you notice that I mentioned that this movie also stars Tippi Hendren, as in Melanie Griffith's mother. Apparently Melanie was an uncredited extra on the film and this is when she met Johnson who then proceeded to leave Pam for Melanie when she was *cough* fourteen years old. Yes that part of the book brook my heart too!

oh hey dude, that was my book. i think pam borrowed it and somehow it ended up in your car. it's now back at home, safe on my bookshelf.

p.s. don johnson was a total fox in the 70s but by the 80s he was a supreme douche. remember when he did that song 'Heartbeat' ??? worst ever. and ew, pedophile?

i don't think i knew that tippi hedren is melanie griffith's mother. melanie is named after melanie daniels, tippi's character in the birds. (maybe i in a roundabout way got my name from her too?)

also check out this tippi factoid:

In a Los Angeles Times article, Ms. Hedren was described as being a pivotal figure in the modern development of Vietnamese owned nail salons in the US. She was apparently drawn to the plight of Vietnamese refugees from the Vietnam War and, in 1975, helped 20 Vietnamese immigrants by having her manicurist teach them the skills of the trade. This single event in history has been cited as the genesis of the modern proliferation of Vietnamese owned nail salons in the US.[20]

ok third comment: i was wrong. tippi's character in the birds was named after her then 5-year old daughter melanie.

ok i'm going to stop with the comments now because i'm beginning to look tippi-crazy.
