«MUSCLES ARE GREAT: EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE THAT THEY CAN SHOW OFF»


Wednesday, October 29, 2014

WHORE!

-Andy loved it when Victor showed up at 54 in a jockstrap or at a Halston party in a Halston dress, in both cases much to Halston's embarrassment. Victor later told me that Andy actually paid him to do these things. He said Andy would slip him some cash and tell him: »Okay, whore, go out there and do something».

-Bob Colacello

YOUNG AND DUMB VERSUS YOUNG AND SMART

It's very easy to see if someone in his 20's is smart or dumb even before you talk to him. The smart ones are narcissistic in a playful and seductive way. The dumb ones are also narcissistic but in a completely self-centered sterile way.

Love without sex is better than sex without stereotypes...

«OHH, ART IS TOO HARD»

«Quel rôle joue la sexualité dans ma vie?
 Dans mes jours et mes nuits?
Dans mes joies et mes peines?

Dans mes relations aux autres?
Dans mes lectures?
Dans le métro?
Dans mes fringues?
Si je le savais j'aurais le sourire de la Joconde
et je perdrais mon âme»

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: ISLAM VS ISLAMISME: LE FAUX DÉBAT

Enfin! Voilà qu'Alain Finkielkraut résume parfaitement une chose en une phrase simple qu'on ne devrait jamais oublier en toute circonstance. Ce qu'on appelle «l'islam radical n'est pas seulement l'islam radical, c'est l'Islam LITTÉRAL.» Comment peut-on encore ne pas comprendre cela?
Une chose propre à TOUTES les religions d'ailleurs. Le fondamentalisme chrétien, c'est une lecture littérale de la Bible. Idem pour le fondamentalisme juif. Si aujourd'hui en Occident les gays peuvent vivre et s'épanouir ouvertement c'est parce que pratiquement plus personne ne fait une lecture littérale du passage de Sodome et Ghomorre et de la statue de sel dans l'ancien Testament. Plus personne ne lit littéralement le passage que la femme doit être soumise à son mari dans la Bible chrétienne. Trajectoire identique pour les juifs avec toutes les variantes possibles.  Oui, les juifs hassiques font une interprétation des textes religieux plus littérale que ne le font les juifs réformistes par exemple. Avec pour résultat que ce sont des juifs hassidiques qui disent que les femmes ne doivent pas s'asseoir dans le bus avec les hommes en Israel. Pas les juifs réformistes. Partout dans le monde les pays qui attirent les immigrants sont sans exceptions des pays de tradition chrétienne ayant pris leur distance de l'interprétation littérale des textes religieux. C'est là un héritage majeur de ces pays ayant mené à leur qualité de vie actuelle. En disant à chaque fois qu'un attentat terroriste islamique n'a rien à voir avec l'islam on affirme implicitement que la lecture littérale des textes du Coran n'est pas un problème. Non seulement c'est faux mais de plus ce n'est pas rendre service à l'immense majorité des musulmans qui eux ne font pas de lecture littérale des textes religieux. Et qui par conséquent sont le modèle à suivre pour que l'immigration des musulmans en Occident soit un succès. Un musulman , un chrétien ou un juif «modéré» c'est avant tout, un musulman, un chrétien ou un juif refusant la lecture littérale des textes religieux comme seule solution à tous les problèmes.

IMAGINARY DIARIES OF A POP ARTIST

Oct 26 2014

Went to the office. Worked on my Xavier Dolan portrait. He's this new kid doing
all those films about women. I guess it's like Women in Revolt but for the new generation. He's got a great Keith Haring tattoo on his arm. He should do a film about him. I wanted him to pose like a vintage James Dean but he said he wanted to look like a young Gerard Malenga. And oh, what is ISIS?
Should I collect it?

«PERSONALLY I LOVED PORNO AND I USED TO BUY LOTS OF IT ALL THE TIME»


WARHOL INC

So I was shot at my place of business: Andy Warhol Enterprises. At that point, in 1968, Andy Warhol Enterprises consisted of a few people who worked for me on a fairly regular basis, a lot of what you might call free-lancers who worked on specific projects, and a lot of "superstars" or "hyperstars" or whatever you can call all the people who are very talented, but whose talents are hard to define and almost impossible to market. That was the "staff" of Andy Warhol Enterprises in those days. An interviewer asked me a lot of questions about how I ran my office and I tried to explain to him that I don't really run it, it runs me. I used a lot of phrases like "bring home the bacon" so he didn't really understand what I was talking about.

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: LES FRANÇAIS

J'aime bien Xavier Dolan disant qu'en France certaines personnes intellectualisent trop ses films en  parlant par exemple d'une référence à Fassbinder, alors que Dolan lui-même avoue n'avoir vu aucun des films du réalisateur allemand.  Au moins le jeu verbal de Dolan en entrevue a le charme d'être axé entièrement sur la séduction. C'est ce qui explique que la France l'aime autant. Ça change du jeu verbal à vide et exaspérant d'un Jeff Koons.

L'ART DE DURER

Si la popularité des oeuvres d'Andy Warhol sur le marché de l'art ne se dément pas il en va de même pour ce qui entoure sa vision des choses. La raison en est bien simple: toute sa vie il n'a jamais perdu de vue les grandes questions essentielles et les seules qui comptent vraiment: l'art, le temps qui passe, la célébrité, l'argent, le sexe, l'amour, la beauté, la mort. Ce sont là assurément les éléments les plus reconnaissables chez les artistes qui ont traversé avec succès l'épreuve du temps et pour Warhol la majorité d'entre eux furent pratiquement des obsessions.

DAVID LACHAPELLE ON MICHAEL JACKSON

«Everyone had a judgment about Michael Jackson, but I think Michael was a messenger and he was here to teach us. He was a really good friend of mine. When he was charged with pedophilia, he still lived his life with such dignity. Even when he was under the most horrible of times, he never lost it, he never freaked out. He just lived it out with dignity, and kindness, and talent.»

GEE, THAT'S ME ALSO!

«I meet them everywhere, people who started graduate school and left it, OK? They’re in publishing, they’re in media, they’re in all kinds of jobs, because they couldn’t stand it. They wanted to study literature and art, but had every obstruction put in their paths. They not only had to read Lacan, Derrida and Foucault, who had nothing to do with literature, but they had to read critics talking about Lacan, Derrida and Foucault, none of whom are philosophically trained, okay?»

WOMAN IN REVOLT

The horrors and atrocities of history have been edited out of primary and secondary education except where they can be blamed on racism, sexism, and imperialism — toxins embedded in oppressive outside structures that must be smashed and remade. But the real problem resides in human nature, which religion as well as great art sees as eternally torn by a war between the forces of darkness and light.
