If you haven't seen Warhol's Screen Tests at SAM yet, take today or tomorrow as the opportunity because there are two talks worth going to in the evenings at 7 and you can see the art first, step out for a drink, then come back.

Talks are scholar Richard Meyer tonight and performance artist Kalup Linzy tomorrow. Meyer's talk will be called A Reason to Get Up in the Morning, which sounds right-good, but if you need to choose, go with the artist. I just met him in a quick presentation he did for the staff at SAM that I snuck into, and I can't wait for his performance.

Here's a YouTube clip from one of Linzy's classics, a reinterpretation (with lipsyncing) of a song that was banned in the 1930s, Lollypop.

I keep wanting to see the Warhol show.

I know I should.

But then I think about how Warhol would say that the filmed art works were better talked about then watched.

So fuck 'em.

The whole song is great--I was bummed the video ended. "Raunchy Business" is a fabulous album collecting a lot of these formerly banned songs.
