My favorite Warhol ... 1951/52 bent window 356 pre-A coupes.  I call 'em "my M&Ms"

His electric chair painting is very powerful. Seriously. It's a very interesting work.

Who wouldn't hang an Electric Chair (1971) in their dining room?

Or put it on an album cover in 1975??

Like him or not, you have to admit that Warhol has had a large influence on pop culture over the past few decades..

The only people that think Warhol's work started and ended with the soup can are people who wouldn't care about his other works anyway.

That said, I've mostly been struck by a sense of indifference toward the vast majority of his art, but his later films, the more "traditional" ones, were just plain farking stupid and I'm unclear why he even did them.

/ and since I've already wasted my time watching Frankenstein anyway, I'm going to go ahead and take the NSFW warning seriously on the assumption that some portion of it appears on the page.

Conclusive evidentiary proofs of Possession if I ever saw any ... did anyone think to use a hemlock stake when they put him in the ground ..?

Hate to be "that guy", but that photo is by Mick Rock.

Great record, though!

He also gets little credit for taking his art work and making this whole business around it. It's really amazing
how he used commercial items (including people), made art about them, and then made the art a commercial item of it's own. It really is a shame that he died before his time. Imagine the amazing things he would
have done with a computer!

He was very white.

Blood for Dracula and Flesh for Frankenstein were actually very interesting takes on both stories.

Udo Kier and Joe Dellasandro made a very interesting pair of actors.  It's strictly midnight movie fare, but in that context they are good fun.  Helps if you are a bit inebriated.
