YOUTH WITHOUT COCKINESS IS NO YOUTH AT ALL


LOST IN TRANSLATION

Me suis toujours demandé pourquoi le célèbre «fifteen minutes of fame» se traduisait en français par »quinze minutes de gloire..»

ANDY WARHOL & STEVE JOBS

Warhol took Sean's spot in front of the computer, and Jobs showed him how to maneuver the mouse. Warhol didn't get it; he lifted and waved the mouse as if it were a conductor's baton. Jobs gently explained that th mouse worked when it was pushed along a surface. Warhol kept lifting it until Jobs placed his hand on Warhol's and guided it along the floor. Finally Warhol began drawing, staring at the «pencil» as it drew on the screen

BEACH BODY

“When you're young and good-looking and you've got a great body, you like to go to the beach and show it all off. And it's easy to make fun of everybody there who isn't so good-looking or in such great shape".

Lorsque Ionesco disait que ce n'était pas ce qu'il y avait à l'intérieur de la vie, l'amour, l'amitié, etc qui était absurde mais bien l'idée même de la vie en soi, tout avait été dit...Il faillait déja en ce qui a trait à la réfléxion sur l'absurde passer à autre chose...

MAKING IT

«If a person isn't generally considered beautiful, they can still be a success if they have a few jokes in their pockets. And a lot of pockets».

Le mondialement connu magazine Vogue aurait décidé de purement et simplement bannir la bimbo de ses pages. Pas seulement de sa couverture non, de l’intégralité du magazine. Plus aucune allusion à Kim Kardashian ne serait autorisée. D’après le magazine américain Hollywood Life, ce qui aurait passablement énervé Anna Wintour, c’est que Kim Kardashian ne respecte pas la règle du « pas de selfie » lors du Met Gala 2015.

«ATHLETES ARE GOING TO BE THE NEW MEDIA STARS»


«I LIKE MONEY ON THE WALL»

Une cascade de centaines de millions de dollars… Les prix hors du commun fusent depuis 2011 dans le marché de l'art.

Illustrations : en 2011 « Les Joueurs de cartes », un tableau de Paul Cézanne, aurait été vendu en transaction privée pour 250 millions de dollars. En novembre 2013, aux enchères, un triptyque de Francis Bacon est parti pour 142 millions de dollars. En février 2015, on parlait d'un Gauguin qui aurait été cédé pour 300 millions de dollars. Enfin, il n'a pas échappé à grand monde qu'en mai dernier, un Picasso de 1955 a été adjugé pour le prix record absolu aux enchères de 179 millions de dollars. Le phénomène va en s'accélérant : les consommateurs de l'art moderne et contemporain font une course à l'oeuvre qui réunira le plus de superlatifs possibles : la plus importante, la plus grande, de la meilleure période par le plus grand artiste… Mais les mots ont une valeur relative».

MARK Wahlberg is not a fan of Justin Bieber’s package.
The Ted 2 star revealed to E! that he had to have a word with pop brat Justin Bieber after the singer sent him a semi-nude selfie shortly after appearing in a Calvin Klein campaign.
“[Bieber] sent me a note saying he was doing [the Calvin Klein ad] and I was like, ‘Oh, cool,’” said Wahlberg.
“And then he sent me a picture and I was like, ‘Dude don’t send me a picture of you in your underwear. That’s crossing the line. I don’t need to see a picture of you in your underwear.’

PHILOSOPHIE FOR THE 21st CENTURY: LE TABOU DES DÉBATS SUR LA RELIGION

Dans le judaïsme, chaque juif est responsable de chaque juif. Être juif n'est pas seulement une identité religieuse. C'est une identité religieuse ET ethnique. Pour les musulmans la Oumma (nation islamique)  fait en sorte que chaque musulman doit être solidaire de chaque autre musulman. Agression contre les palestiniens? Les musulmans du monde entier manifestent, de Paris à Jakarta en passant par Londres. Rien de tel dans le Christianisme, lequel par conséquent s'est effondré partout en Occident sans solidarité aucune avec les chrétiens du Moyen Orient. Comprenne qui pourra...

HOLLYWOOD FAME

«One fascinating thing about Hollywood is that it's filled with these petite, fragile beauties in their seventies and eighties that you see at all the premieres and things. You can tell they were once really beautiful because they still have that glamour aura around them, and they still hold themselves together really well. But you can't figure out who they are, or what roles they had or how they live today».

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


IAN SCHRAGER


Even in Schrager’s earliest properties, art was always a focal point—starting with the 105 black-and-white flower photographs he commissioned Robert Mapplethorpe to do for the rooms at Morgans Hotel back in 1984. For the Palladium, the nightclub he opened in 1985, he commissioned Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Kenny Scharf to create pop-art installations for the dance floor and enlisted Francesco Clemente to paint frescoes on the domed ceilings. For the Paramount Hotel in 1990, he transposed details from Vermeer paintings onto oversized headboards in the guest rooms. But it was his Gramercy Park Hotel in 2006 that radically re-envisioned the concept of a hotel, with an art collection so serious that it rivaled those of many of Chelsea’s blue-chip galleries: “I wanted to bring art that was once relegated to museums and private collections into public spaces where everyone could enjoy it,” Schrager explains. So, with the help of Julian Schnabel, he covered the lobby with massive abstract canvases by Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, and Damien Hirst (many on loan from collectors like the Mugrabi family and Peter Brant) to create a space that made guests feel as if they were staying in a modern-day version of Peggy Guggenheim’s art-filled Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on Venice’s Grand Canal.

«ART IS A RELIGIOUS QUEST» -CAMILLE PAGLIA

«Warhol aimait s'entourer de nombreux objets d'art religieux. Il collectionnait les crucifix anciens
et possédait notamment deux belles croix, l'une incrustée de nacre, ornait sa salle de bain de la troisième Factory et l'autre fabriquée avec des pièces de 20 centimes venait de Bolivie. Outre un exemplaire du Coran et plusieurs éditions de la Bible, sa bibliothèque comportait de nombreux ouvrages sur toutes sortes de sujets touchant à la spiritualité et à la religion. À la fin de sa vie, un livre pieux et un crucifix étaient posés en permanence sur sa table de nuit et on sait qu'il portait souvent sur lui un chapelet».

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: ENNUI

Le philosophe Cioran écrivait un jour que quiconque n'avait pas connu un bordel à cinq heures
du matin ne pouvait pas imaginer vers quel ennui se dirigeait notre monde. De nos jours il faudrait plutôt écrire que quiconque n'a jamais feuilleté un de ces glossy magazines de mode de luxe actuel ne peut pas comprendre à quel point un simple magazine peut distiller de l'ennui....

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: LE TEMPS

La pire façon de vous illusionner sur le temps qui passe, c'est de penser à votre âge: seulement un chiffre dit-on.  La meilleure façon de ne pas avoir cette illusion c'est de penser à l'année de votre naissance qui elle, en reculant sans cesse dans l'histoire, éclaire alors beaucoup mieux.

WHY WARHOL WAS IN LOVE WITH HIS TAPE RECORDER

Do you love your cellphone? Your laptop? And--be honest now--did you ever expect to have an emotional relationship with a gadget?Sherry Turkle figured you would. Turkle, a psychoanalytically-trained sociologist and psychologist who teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has spent decades studying technology's effect on relationships and one's sense of self. Her favorite mantra: We think with objects we love. We love objects we think with.
