Janis Joplin, Royal Albert Hall, April 29 1969, by by Eric Hayes

“God, is that exciting, man! Nobody, nobody ever, anybody ever thought it would be that good! I didn’t. Nobody else did… London was the best… They fuckin’ got up and grooved, and then they listened. That was dynamite. You know, you can tell when they’re really being selfish and they just wanna dance, but they worked, man, and when I’d do a soft song everybody’d shut up! That’s too much, man. That’s really too fuckin’ much.”


Jany Temime (the costume designer of Harry Potter) had just as much pleasure crafting Ron’s drab dress robes for the school function, but did sympathize with him — and Rupert Grint.

“Sometimes I was feeling a little bit ashamed because every teenager wanted to look cool and good and Ron was never looking cool and good. He was always looking ridiculous. But somehow [Rupert] was pulling it off brilliantly!” she gushes to Us. “He is a great actor and he was completely accepting this part and he was completely understanding of the character better than anybody else. So he was helping me a lot. He never felt ashamed to wear any of the costumes, which was very appreciated. He was a lovely, lovely, lovely boy to work with.

She adds: “I always enjoyed dressing Ron because Rupert Grint was great and always made me laugh. He was such a lovely boy to design for.”

Ron, who was used to hand-me-downs and receiving a hand-stitched “R” maroon sweater every Christmas, was the most difficult to alter in the epilogue. In the final “Nineteen Years Later” scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, he wore a button-down shirt and cardigan.

“I tried to keep their character and project it 20 years later. I must say, I think it was successful. I also knew what job they were going to have, so it was quite easy. The one which was hardest was Ron because something is ridiculed when you are 14 it can be ridiculed again,” Temime explains to Us. “I didn’t want to make him like his dad. I wanted to make him as somebody who doesn’t really care about what he’s wearing. He was the hardest of the three 20 years later.” [2017]

Janis Joplin has her Neptune forming a grand trine on the cusp of the eighth house. In attempts to play with oblivion, she died of a heroin overdose. Jim Jones whose Neptune is in the eighth house died consuming cyanide. Andy Warhol has his eighth house ruled by Neptune and died during a routine gallbladder surgery. His autopsy stated he ‘was accidentally overdosed with fluids’ (very Neptunian language) and Warhol’s lawyer, Bruce Clark said, “they pumped him full through here and they never kept track of what came out later. The fluids drowned him.
