I am a big Andy Warhol-head; one of the great days of my life was spent going to the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and then going to a showing of I Shot Andy Warhol at a cool movie theater whose name I now forget.

Thanks, madamj!

I'm a big VU-head, so I love seeing these images!

Here's a bizarre story.

(also, a few photographs from Laura Rubin, who was a friend of Candy Darling, and this great group photo from Gerard Malanga. More from him here.)

Who was it who said that Warhol was "the first to shout 'theatre' at a crowded fire"? I always thought that summed up the Factory and its hangers-on well.

The Museum was great fun -- they were having a workshop the Sunday I went, and I did some of those funky color-blocked self-portraits. I love a museum where they teach you technique.
