PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: RELIGIONS

I never trust atheists or deeply religious people. But I always trust people with a deep awareness of all the past religions people no longer believe in. They always have the right attitude towards religions.

ON PRO WRESTLING: «IT'S ENTERTAINMENT, IT'S SHOW BUSINESS, IT'S CHIC»


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.

-The philosophy of Andy Warhol

WARHOLIAN QUOTE OF THE DAY

«If you have a success you have it for the wrong reasons. If you become popular it is always because of the worst aspects of your work.»

-Ernest Hemingway

ART CRITIC 101

Keith Haring art was interesting in the 1980's. It's still interesting in 2015.
Francesco Clemente art was not interesting in the 1980's. It's still not interesting today....

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

«Fame might be the best aphrodisiac but I wasn't famous enough to excite anyone except the rare individual. Where I was younger and less celebrated I had more success. Youth boosts the appeal of even quite mediocre fame. In any event it's women who are more susceptible to the lure of power and money. Men like youth and beauty. Straight men might envy or compete with male sucesss but gay men seek out trophy boys».

This is also where Maripol let pals like Keith Haring and Basquiat sleep on her couch.

So there was this old lady at the counter telling me this was the best product ever because it could be used by black, asian, white and latino women. But then some japanese artsy looking girl came and said asian was not an ethnic group but a racial one and asked if they were going to launch a new line for japanese skin, vietnamese skin, chinese skin, korean skin and so on. Then the old lady got mad and left..Oh, I don't understand it. Should I buy a face cream for «white american guy», «white american gay guy», or «white catholic guy»?

LE NOUVEAU TRIANGLE

On dit souvent que les artistes américains ou canadiens sont davantage reconnus en Europe avant de l'être chez eux et vice-versa. Warhol et Haring furent deux bons exemples. Or maintenant que les riches collectionneurs chinois se mettent à acheter les trophée de l'art Occidental la donne sera t-elle appelée à changer quelque peu?

WALKING THE PUG....


«PEOPLE NEED TO BE MADE MORE AWARE OF THE NEED TO WORK AT LEANING HOW TO LIVE BECAUSE LIFE IS SO QUICK AND SOMETIMES IT GOES AWAY TOO QUICKLY»

«Ce n'est pas tant l'oeuvre qui compte, mais la trajectoire de l'esprit au cours de la totalité de la vie. Non pas ce qu'il a fait au cours de celle-ci, mais ce que cela laisse entrevoir et permettra aux autres de faire à une date plus ou moins éloignée».

-Joan Miro.

«Politics is interesting if you are in politics, if not, forget about it».
