POP!


"What's great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good."
— Andy Warhol

  12. That's a nugget of wisdom right there. On the other hand, I don't think that's a strictly American luxury whatsoever.

  14. I SOOOO want to do a heavy metal cover of Andy Warhol by friggin' David Bowie...

    Not a screamo or death metal, mind you, just replace the acoustic guitar sound (or whatever he used) with an 8-string with more bass.

    Aw screw it, just a chance to cover it properly would be fine by me.
