Warhol's Candid Camera

Michael Musto... Warhol's Candid Camera - Drugs, Speedos, horrifying hair (we're looking at you, Dianne Brill)! Andy's famous friends are caught with their guards down in a new collection of his snapshots (Radar Magazine, 09/21/06). "...In 1968, a girl who looked like Lili Taylor shot Andy Warhol at close range in the lobby of his Factory. Miraculously, he survived, wig slightly askew. Almost 20 years later, his worst fear was more fully realized when he succumbed to tragically mundane complications of gallbladder surgery. But even that event could only be called death in the most literal, physical sense, what with his work and his overwhelming impact on pop culture - not to mention the legions of people who to this day pleadingly screech, 'I knew Andy Warhol!'"

In 1968, a girl who looked like Lili Taylor shot Andy Warhol at close range in the lobby of his Factory. Miraculously, he survived, wig slightly askew. Almost 20 years later, his worst fear was more fully realized when he succumbed to tragically mundane complications of gallbladder surgery. But even that event could only be called death in the most literal, physical sense, what with his work and his overwhelming impact on pop culture—not to mention the legions of people who to this day pleadingly screech, "I knew Andy Warhol!"

Now he's more alive than he's been in years, thanks to Ric Burns's four-hour Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film airing on PBS ("Wow," the artist would have deadpanned), and Warhol's World (Hauser & Wirth/Steidl), a tubby little book featuring snapshots of his countless acquaintances, all taken by the alleged social-phobe himself. I'm in there, in various states of overdress and undress—the best proof I've seen of my own existence. (The only previous evidence was my brief appearances on pages 753 and 792 of the Warhol Diaries.) And what grand (Guignol) company to be in! When Andy lifted his camera and gently clicked, face set in a bemused smile, he nabbed bonafide candids—Stallone in a thong, Spielberg relaxing, Lagerfeld thinking. Using his uncanny power over people, the unkillable Warhol landed shots both purposely banal and wildly trenchant, and all are worth more than 15 minutes.

INTERNATIONAL CRISIS GROUP - NEW REPORT

Towards a Comprehensive Settlement of the Arab-Israeli Conflict

 

New York, 22 September 2006: The International Crisis Group today launched a new global advocacy initiative designed to generate new political momentum for a comprehensive settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Major funding support for the initiative — to cost around $400,000 in its first year — was announced at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York.

“After the chaos of the last few months, there is a new sense of urgency about finding a comprehensive, just and sustainable peace”, said Crisis Group President Gareth Evans. “There is also broad international understanding of what is needed to ultimately resolve the conflict. But the spark has to be somehow lit, and a serious new process started”.
