Kinfauns was George Harrison and Pattie Boyd's house in Surrey, England from 1964 to 1970. George and Pattie painted the outside house themselves in 1967 and when their friends would come over they'd add to the paintings. One day, Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull arrived at the house while George and Pattie were out and left a message painted on the house: “Mick and Marianne were here and we love you.” They moved out in 1970 to Friar Park.

It’s fine to live on the outskirts of town, but artists must reflect what we all are. b>I feel that artists are that: they’re reflections of society… mirrors”

It’s a long way to the finish, when you’ve never been before.
I was nervous but I did it, now I’m going back for more. [x]
I’m pretty sure this is a t-shirt from the Monkees concert era which I attended, alongside a Weird Al concert.
