There goes my chance...

...to ever own an original Warhol work. Oh well.

A propos of nothing, whenever I think of Andy Warhol, I tend to think of Ruben and Ed with Crispin Glover giggling over a spray-painted sign reading "Andy Warhol Sucks A Big One". That and the whole "At least I'm not a fraud failure!" bit right after it.

Never heard of Ruben and Ed, but I distinctly remember Crispin Glover playing Andy Warhol in a movie once... The Doors, I think.

Bowie has played Warhol in a movie, too, but I don't recall which one (haven't seen it).

Speaking of Bowie, when I was in NYC I once ate in a restaurant and Bowie walked in with some super-model and ate at the table next to me. I was like, what could I even say to him? And who wants an autograph? I'm Canadian, anyway. I just left him alone. I figured it was the only thing I had that might have been of value to him.

Rubin & Ed is one of my favorite movies ever. Crispin Glover and Howard Hesseman go into the desert to find the perfect place to bury a cat. A cat that could formerly eat a whole watermelon.

Also, in a situation like that with Bowie (or someone else hugely cool/famous), it might be interesting to go up to him and go "Pardon me, but are you David Bowie?" and if he says "yes", go "Oh, cool." and walk away.

When I worked at Coca-Cola I worked in the USA building and there was an original Andy Warhol in the hallway behind the desk of this girl I thought was cute and would always try to talk to. Don't remember her name. Guess I didn't get very far with that bird... :D

As for Bowie... I'd rather not take a chance on creating a memory where I maybe spoiled an evening or he said something stupid. Like with Tim Robbins. I once lit his cigar and tried (awkwardly I think) to strike up a conversation and all it did was remind me that I'm not a celebrity (though I don't really need to be one-- as Bill Murray says of "fame and riches"-- 'Try riches, you'll like it better). Wasn't a fun memory...

And then, by the way, Tim Robbins started stalking me! I kept seeing him places over the next six months-- getting out of a taxi with his son going into ESPN Zone in Times Square, at a hockey game, twice at the rink he'd play at with Denis Leary, and once more at some opening... I kept thinking, OK! You don't feel like talking to all 9.5M "normal" people, but stop appearing everywhere! :D
