Speaking of Warhol


There's a great piece by Jonathan Jones in The Guardian objecting to how Andy Warhol is usually depicted in movies, i.e., either as a vampiric manipulator of vulnerable acolytes or a circus freak.

Speaking as a Warhol fanatic, I stand behind Jones when he writes that he'd "rather gaze at the Empire State building for eight hours than see another biopic or documentary that claims to recreate the strange and mysterious world of his New York studio." Warhol may have been just too strange for this world, but this world is better for having had him around for a while.

Right on, Tom! Spare me the great white wigs (but especially on Bowie)!

hey have a game on the Sunday after Thanksgiving so we will host the whole crew at our place in Cornwall, Moxie Hill Farm. We have a great party barn and a shuffleboard table that I can convert in to a long harvest table. đại lý cá cược bóng đá trên mạng
