Who Are We This Time Amerika Online

A title comes to our minds. "Avant-Pop Among the Ruins". For, after all, we are now in Taormina, Sicily, and as we walk through the 3rd Century Greek Theater here which, as Let's Go reminds us, Goethe thought commanded one of the most beautiful views in the world (he was right!), we are reminded of the movie we saw last night in the town center, Andy Warhol's CHELSEA GIRLS, a flick that we'll admit got us to thinking how absolutely boring our life was, or can be if we don't watch who we hang out with, and how the double screen projection of Nico, Ondine, International Velvet and even Andy himself reminded us of just how much the media, in this age of ravenous narrative reproduction, produces our generative values for us.
