Pittsburgh post-show - Inspirational Warhol
Pittsburgh post-show - Inspirational Warhol. The Andy Warhol Museum proves to be an inspiration for Wille and Howie B. Willie is voted Top 25 in the Millennium by Wired magazine.

Pittsburgh. Day off.
Howie B. & I headed down to the Andy Warhol museum this morning. I didn't even know it was here, but its fabulous. They've done such a great job on it. Home of Pop - it was totally inspiring. Made me want to posterise the entire show. The silver cloud room is fantastic. Howie & I lay on the floor for ages, watching the balloons float around above us, just tripping out on it all. Quite lovely. Warhol was all over it - quite the guy. It struck me that what we are really doing in our show is applying the principles of Pop Art to video - simplicity, colour, repetition. Andy would be proud. Or he'd sue us. Some great memorabilia in the museum too - including a letter from Mick Jagger about an album cover Warhol was going to do for them. It was sent 30 years ago - amazing to think Jagger's still at it. Howie & I had our pictures taken in Warhol's photo booth and left.

Got an e.mail from Wired magazine today saying they are doing an issue about the "Top 25 minds behind entertainment in the next millennium" and they want to include me as one of them. What a deal!
