Chelsea Girls is insane. Quite possibly the ground zero for experimental avant grade cinema and video art. Empire to me is about using time, along with boredom, as a raw material to create a work of art. Sleep? What's more fantastical and impossible to document than one's dream state?..........Only Warhol could have come up with such ideas and presented them in the way he did.

Never Carlina! Not after she sold out our park to De Blasio.
