I'm still here

It's not that I haven't felt like writing....I'm jotting down notes here and there, but haven't felt the urge to click on the "post" button lately.

Whatever. For you Warholians, here's a new article from today's NYT, "The Selling of St. Andy" Amen.

Oh and, Santa, "Among the new books are “Edie Factory Girl” (VH1 Press), a photo chronicle of the artist’s relationship with his socialite muse Edie Sedgwick, and “The Day the Factory Died” (Empire), pictures from Warhol’s memorial service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral by Christophe von Hohenberg, with text on the Warhol circle by Charlie Scheips. There is also “Andy Warhol ‘Giant’ Size” (Phaidon), a coffee-table tribute to the artist, packed scrapbook style with 2,000 images and documents."

While you're praying to the patron saint of Pop, check this out. And where would our saint be without Ms. Polk? God, I love her! She's still so sassy. Me-ow!

Did you watch Moyers last night?

Alas, when I was feeling all was wrong in this town and in the media, Bill Moyers hit one out of the park. What superb television journalism! (I know -- did I just write the words 'superb,' 'television,' and 'journalism' to describe something on the tube in 2006?)
