art is what you can get away with

did any of you see the movie "factory girl"? i wanted to see it. never did though.


i've always liked andy warhol. a lot of people don't care for pop art (or for him). but beyond his art, i like andy warhol. he was intelligent, he was secure, he is opinionated, he was everything he wanted to be--he was happy.
i wish i could have such a positive influence on the world around me.

"What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it." (from the philosophy of andy warhol, 1975)

I too like Andy Warhol. I worked at an Art Gallery that showed prints that he did of endangered species. It was a great exhibit.
