New York post-show

New York post-show - Willie "pops" down the village with Warhol as companion.

Popism down the Village. Been reading Andy Warhol's "Popism", because it seemed like the perfect time to do it - in New York after a week of mad parties. That 60's NY era with all its 'happenings' all seems so fantastically silly now, but I bet you it was a lot of fun at the time. Warhol's basic premise of Pop was that 'anybody can do anything', of which we would appear to be living proof. Evening movie - "Kolya" the Czech Oscar winner. Wonderful story and beautifully made film. Loved it.
