Space Monkey

Another excerpt from the Andy Warhol Diaries.  Monday, May 29, 1978 We walked over to have lunch at One Fifth, and on the way we saw Patti Smith in a bowler hat buying food for her cat. I invited her thinking she’d say no, but she said, “Great.” When we walked in, there was […]

Ten Years After

Another excerpt from the Andy Warhol Diaries.  Friday, June 2, 1978 Robert Kennedy, Jr. was on TV for the tenth anniversary of when his father was shot, so it’s ten years since I was shot, too–he was the day after me.

Andy Take a Little Snooze

Just a note to say that I’m currently juggling five different projects (all of which I will let you know about as they come to fruition, of course), so posting here will be less frequent for the next month or so; my apologies. A quick pair of excerpts from The Andy Warhol Diaries: Thursday, February […]

Andy Warhol, Movie Critic

Another excerpt from the Andy Warhol Diaries. The other person in “we” is Bianca Jagger: Tuesday, January 3, 1978 We cabbed up to 86th Street ($2.75) and we finally hit Saturday Night Fever at the right time and were able to get in. Well, the movie was just great. That bridge thing was the best […]

Son of Sam I Am

Another excerpt from the Andy Warhol Diaries: Saturday, July 16, 1977 Son of Sam is still out on the loose, and that’s an old-style crime–notes to the police, an M.O., killer on the loose, all that. People seem sort of happy to see a pattern. Son of Sam is nostalgia, almost.

White Lines

Another excerpt from the Andy Warhol Diaries. They must have been watching a videotape: Monday, August 22, 1977 When we got there, everyone was already watching the Wimbledon match between Bjorn Borg and Vitas Gerulaitis. Those last two weren’t there yet, they were having dinner together. The match went on for three hours, and somewhere […]

By the time it opened on Broadway, Shine It On had been renamed The Act. Barbara Feldon was best known for playing Agent 99 on Get Smart. Sunday, July […]

Drinking the Kool-Aid

From The Andy Warhol Diaries, a seasonal selection: Thursday, November 23, 1978 I watched the Thanksgiving Day parade on TV. I guess New York really is booming–when you think that every member of every marching band has to stay in a hotel room overnight. I glued myself together and went down to work (cab $3.50) […]
