In our continuing investigation into MKULTRA, today I interview Szou Paulekas, who was one of Vito’s Freaks on the Laurel Canyon scene and became his wife at age 18. Today she’s takes us on an inside view of her life with Vito.
“Szou was a forerunner of thrift-store fashion, and there were always plenty of falling-apart velvet dresses and forties teddies available for a pittance. Whatever she got tired of wearing, she put a price tag on. She also concocted her own creations out of doilies and tags, which cost a bit more but were the ultimate in antique chic.”Vito was convicted of armed robbery in 1938, but was released in 1942 and joined the US Merchant Marines. Around 1946, he moved to Los Angeles where, by the early 1960s, he had set up home on Beverly Boulevard.

Vito and Szou are some of the founding pioneers of what became modern art and the 1960s counterculture revolution.
