"This is Hollywood, and Hollywood's Hollywood...but in Ohio, maybe they aren't ready for this. We're trying to spread our philosophy."
Miss Christine's Story: She, too was born in San Pedro of Yugoslav parents. She was a "sickly kid," she says, and
had a "big complex about being skinny." (She is tall and lean, the type of girl who would have been called "beanpole"
by her schoolmates.) "Pop music brought it all together for me socially," she said. "It brought people together,
it gave me friends." She says she is the cold, cruel one in the group, but she's not. She's bright and quite outgoing.
She met Zappa when he returned to LA from New York for a concert, when she was living in Franzoni's commune. "We talk
about groups a lot," she said. "That's because it's glamourous and because we're very young. If you have a fave
rave in a band, it's like having a soldier in the war; you write him letters and you worry about him." When Zappa returned
to LA for good, she became his housekeeper and governess to Moon Unit, Frank's daughter. "Mercy and I sent the Velvet
Underground a dozen roses with our pictures on the back," she said. "You can't be subtle." Miss Christine loves
clothing and makes all her own, which can only be described as junkshop harlequin. The night of our interview she was wearing
a knitted patchwork jump suit in a hundred colors, colored pipe cleaners coiled into her frizzed character; not a bad description.
