JANUARY 1969: VIVA THREATENS ANDY WARHOL.

Viva sent Warhol a threatening letter from Paris. She had gone there in November 1968 using a roundtrip ticket that Andy had paid for. In the letter Viva threatened: “If you don’t send me money, I’ll work against you as well as I worked for you.” Warhol was disappointed by her behavior and ignored her. (POP295)

FEBUARY 1969: VIVA THREATENS ANDY AGAIN.

This time Viva sent her request for money by telegram. Warhol ignored her again. Viva ended up going to Los Angeles to star in AGNES VARDA’s movie Lions Love. (POP295)

MARCH 1969: VIVA MARRIES MICHEL AUDER.

While Andy Warhol was in the hospital having a “follow-up operation” the Factory received a telegram from Viva saying she had gotten married. She returned to New York with her husband, a French filmmaker named Michel Auder who she had met in Europe and took to Hollywood.

Upon her return, Viva rang Andy and told him she was writing an autobiographical novel called Superstar for Putnam’s that would be an expose of the underground, also telling him that she was taping their conversation for one of the chapters. (POP295)

MARCH 11, 1969: INGRID SUPERSTAR READS HER POETRY.

Ingrid Superstar read her poetry at St. Mark's Church In-The Bouwerie, with Gerard Malanga also doing a reading of his poems. The showing of a "never before seen Andy Warhol film" was promised at the event. (X1)

1969: CANDY DARLING DOESN'T GET A PART.

Film industry trade papers announced that a movie was going to be made of GORE VIDAL’s Myra Breckinridge. A much publicized search for the role of Myra was launched.

CANDY DARLING was desperate for the part and made numerous calls/letters to the producer and director. She was extremely disappointed when RAQUEL WELCH got the part instead. (UV133)

Candy Darling:

"They decided Raquel Welch would make a more believable transvestite."(BC84)

MAY 1969: ANDY WARHOL FAILS TO GET A HOLLYWOOD DEAL.

Columbia studios flew Andy to L.A. to discuss a screen treatment developed by PAUL MORRISSEY and JOHN HALLOWELL (who was writing a book called The Truth Game consisting of interviews with Hollywood stars).

The studio ended up rejecting the project for “moral reasons.” (POP297) John Hallowell later played the part of John, the gossip columnist in Andy Warhol's HEAT.

SUMMER 1969: HOLLY GETS A LAST NAME.

HOLLY chose WOODLAWN as her last name while watching an episode of I Love Lucy with SILVER GEORGE, PETER and some other friends while high on speed.

In the TV episode, Lucy was riding on the subway with a loving cup stuck on her head. In the background of the subway was the word Woodlawn as Lucy was supposedly riding the 'Woodlawn' train - a train to the Bronx with it's final destination being the Woodlawn Cemetery.

Holly's friend Peter noticed the sign while watching the episode and screamed it out so that Holly would see it. (HW119)

JUNE 25 - AUGUST 5, 1969: ANDY WARHOL OPENS A PORN CINEMA.

Andy Warhol rented the 150 seat Fortune Theater at 62 East Fourth Street (second floor), with Gerard Malanga as manager, and put on a series of hardcore male porn films. (LD325)

According to Victor Bockris, the porn cinema was Paul Morrissey's idea. It was called Andy Warhol's Theater: Boys to Adore Galore. Gerard Malanga was in charge of the operation and the "paperwork was done under his name and company, Poetry on Film." Gerard "managed the theater and ran the music behind the silent reels."

The co-manager was poet Jim Carroll who also took tickets. Joe Dallesandro worked as projectionist for several weeks, replacing his brother who had been committed to Bellevue mental hospital. According to Jim Carroll, Joe Dallesandro was also secretly making a bit of extra money by taking clients into "a small sofa-filled room beside the projection booth" and having sex with them. (LD325)

JUNE 27 , 1969: ANDY WARHOL ATTENDS A FUNERAL.

Andy Warhol took ONDINE and CANDY DARLING to the long line for Judy Garland at Frank Campbell’s Funeral Home on 81st and Madison.

Andy Warhol:

“At the end of July I took Ondine and Candy up to the round-the-block line for Judy Garland at Frank Campbell's Funeral Home on 82st and Madison. I wanted to tape-record them as they were waiting to go past the casket... I had it in my head that this would make a great play - Ondine and Candy in a line stretching across the stage with criers and laughers all over the place, and everybody telling each other what’d brought them there... But being with Ondine that day was really strange; it was like being with a normal person. He hadn’t been coming around the Factory much. He had a steady lover now, he said he was totally off speed, and he was sort of settled down, working as a mailman in Brooklyn... For weeks I couldn’t stop thinking about this new nonpersonality of Ondine’s. Talking to him now was like talking to your Aunt Tillie. Sure, it was good he was off drugs (I supposed), and I was glad for him (I supposed), but he was so boring: there was no getting around that. The brilliance was gone.” (POP288)

(Although Popism places this event at the end of July, Judy Garland's memorial service at Frank Campbell's actually took place on June 27, 1969. 22,000 people filed past her coffin.) (http://www.thirteen.org/pressroom/release.php?get=1125)

JULY 21, 1969: JACKIE CURTIS (ALMOST) MARRIES ERIC EMERSON.

Jackie and Eric planned to stage their "wedding" on the rooftop terrace of an apartment building at 211 E. 11th Street, inviting press and underground stars/artists with a porno producer turned self-ordained priest performing the ceremony.

Jackie Curtis' wedding with Andy Warhol

When Eric didn't show up, Curtis ‘married’ Stanley Sweetheart (who Holly Woodlawn calls 'Stanley Falconspeed' in her autobiography). Stanley was the blonde maitre d’ at Max’s. At the ceremony, HOLLY WOODLAWN, who was a bridesmaid, met JOHN VACARRO, founder of the Playhouse of the Ridiculous and he offered her a role in Jackie’s latest play, 'Heaven Grand in Amber Orbit'. (HW126/MLR)

The fake wedding was covered by the Village Voice in a front-page article 'Twilight of the Tribe' and filmed by the Maysles Brothers. The guests included Larry Ray dancing in a tutu and Melba LaRose who tap danced. Melba was a longtime friend of both Jackie and Candy and had starred in Jackie's first play, 'Glamour, Glory and Gold, the Life and Legend of Nola Noonan, Goddess and Star.' Other guests included Tony Ingrassia, Alice Playten and Ruby Lynn Reiner. (MLR)

According to Victor Bockris, a Jackie Curtis' 'wedding' took place on July 21st at Max's on the opening night of Blue Movie - and the groom was named Stuart Lichtenstein. (LD326)

Jackie staged numerous weddings throughout his life, with the eighth and final one at No. 1 Fifth Avenue in approximately 1978. (MLR)

JULY 21, 1969: ANDY WARHOL'S BLUE MOVIE OPENS.

Blue Movie by Andy WarholBlue Movie opened at the New Andy Warhol Garrick Theater.

Variety magazine had reported in its June 18 issue that it was the "first theatrical feature to actually depict intercourse."

On July 30, Variety reported that the film had recovered three hundred percent of its cost in the first week of exhibition.

The cinema was raided on July 31st and the film seized and cinema staff arrested. On September 18, 1969, a three judge panel in the New York Criminal Court ruled the film obscene and the theatre manager was fined $250.

Warhol published the film in book form through Grove Press, in 1970, with explicit stills from the movie and a complete transcription of the dialogue. (FAW36)

1969: HOLLY WOODLAWN GETS A BOYFRIEND.

Holly met future boyfriend JOHNNY in an apartment she shared with photographer LEE CHILDERS and entertainer WAYNE COUNTY (aka JAYNE COUNTY) - who would later appear in the London production of Warhol's play, 'Pork'.

Some hippie friends of Lee’s stopped by the apartment on their way home from Woodstock. Amongst the party was a fifteen year old boy who Holly noticed sitting on her bed playing his guitar when she returned from a late night at Max’s with friends RITA REDD, ESTELLE and JACKIE CURTIS.

Holly gave Johnny some acid the night after she first noticed him and then ‘swooped in for the kill’. Johnny later accompanied her to the filming of TRASH and ended up playing the role of the young student that Holly injected with drugs (“trust me”). (HW128)

1969: ANDY SAYS BRIGID DOES HIS PAINTINGS.

Warhol told a west coast magazine “something outrageous like"‘I dont even do my own paintings - BRIGID POLK [Berlin] does them for me.’

Joyce Haber repeated his comment in her syndicated newpaper column and the German press started calling the Factory because collectors were “panicking that they might have Polks instead of Warhols.”

Warhol was forced to make a public retraction. (POP249)

AUTUMN 1969: VINCENT FREMONT JOINS THE FACTORY.

Vincent Fremont started working with Andy Warhol in 1969 as a freelance writer, later becoming the studio manager and vice-president of Andy Warhol Enterprises in 1974. In the early eighties he became the executive manager of Andy Warhol's studio. After Warhol's death, Vincent was one of the founding directors of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. and eventually the foundation's exclusive sales agent. In the early seventies, he worked with Ronnie Cutrone on videos and was involved in the development of Warhol's Soap Opera project in 1973 (later re-named Phoney), and also worked on Warhol's Fight (1975). He also produced Andy Warhol's TV and Andy Warhol's Fifteen Minutes. (UW73)

More recently he has produced and directed the documentary on Brigid Berlin's life, Pie in the Sky - The Brigid Berlin Story (2000), along with his wife, Shelly Dunn Fremont.

1969: HOLLY WOODLAWN (ALMOST) STEALS A CAMERA.

During rehearsals for Jackie Curtis' latest play Heaven Grand in Amber Orbit (in which Holly appeared), Holly became closer friends with JACKIE CURTIS and often accompanied her to the Factory when Jackie needed to ask Andy for money.

At the Factory, Holly met an Italian kid named JEFF working as a gofer for Andy. She also ran into him one night at Max’s after he was fired from the Factory. She saw him on the street a few days later and he asked her to go uptown with him to pick up a camera. Once in the shop, Jeff attempted to charge a two-thousand dollar camera to Warhol, telling the shop clerks that Holly was VIVA. When the clerk said he would need to verify the charge to Andy’s account, they both ran out of the shop. (HW130)

SEPTEMBER 1969: HEAVEN GRAND IN AMBER ORBIT OPENS.

JACKIE CURTIS’ play, Heaven Grand in Amber Orbit opened on 43rd Street in a small funeral-home-turned-theatre. HOLLY WOODLAWN played Cuckoo the Bird Girl, featured as Moon Reindeer Girl in the chorus.

During the run of the play, Holly was interviewed by JOHN HEYES for an underground newspaper and said that she was a Warhol superstar. They ran the story with “shmaltzy Art Nouveau photos” taken by LEE CHILDERS. (HW131)

1969: PAUL MORRISEY CASTS HOLLY WOODLAWN IN TRASH.

Paul cast Holly without ever meeting her, having read the article in which she claimed to be a Warhol superstar. Andy told Paul to be careful after the camera incident, but Paul used her anyway. (HWix)

According to an interview that Holly Woodlawn gave to Patrick Smith, Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey noticed Holly in the chorus of 'A Reindeer Girl' - an Off Broadway play written by JACKIE CURTIS at the Theatre of Ridiculous (Charles Ludlum and John Vacario). Holly: "Well, Andy and Paul Morrissey saw the show, and they asked me to be in Trash. So, I was plucked from the chorus to be in my first movie after my first play." (PS523)

A SATURDAY AFTERNOON IN OCTOBER 1969: PAUL MORRISSEY BEGINS SHOOTING TRASH.

to filmography

Morrissey started filming TRASH in the basement of his brownstone on 6th Street between First and Second Avenue on the Lower East Side.

JED JOHNSON was the film’s entire crew, functioning as “gofer, gaffer, grip and editor". (HW134) Paul, who was against drugs, wanted Trash to deglamourize drug taking. (POP297) The original title planned for the film was Drug Trash, but it was decided it was too obvious. (BC35)

Although HOLLY WOODLAWN was only supposed to do one scene, the rushes were so good that Paul asked her back to do more. (HW139) Holly was paid the usual fee for acting in a Warhol film - $25.00 a day. When they finished shooting her footage, Holly celebrated by using her final payment of $25.00 on heroin. (HW146)

(According to Victor Bockris, Trash was shot during the first two weeks of December, 1969 (LD328) - however, this contradicts Joe Dallesandro and Holly Woodlawn who both remember the month as October.)

Hollywood actress, Sissy Spacek, unknown at the time, also appeared in Trash although her scene was later cut:

Sissy Spacek:

"I was in Andy's Trash when I was a teenager... "I didn't mind [that the scene was cut], because I really saw myself as a singer. I went under the name Rainbo. I had this single called John Lennon, You Went Too Far This Time, about John and Yoko [Ono] posing nude on their album cover." (NYD)

Trash also featured the Warhol screen debut of another teenager - 16 year old Jane Forth. (LD)

The first issue of Inter/VIEW, A Monthly Film Journal featured a photograph of VIVA naked on the cover with her (also naked) co-stars JAMES RADO and JEROME RAGNI (of Hair fame) from Lions Love, directed by Agnes Varda - "an intellectual film trying to be commercial" (BC6). Warhol star JACKIE CURTIS wrote a love-life advice column in early issues. (BC98)

NOVEMBER 1969: HOLLYWOODLAWN APPEARS IN COCKSTRONG.

JOHN VACARRO cast HOLLY WOODLAWN in the chorus of his play Cockstrong with music by the Silver Apples.

After two weeks in rehearsal Holly was thrown out of the company, with Vacarro proclaiming, “There are no stars in the Playhouse of the Ridiculous... I will not put up with psychotic drag queens!”

Later at Max’s, JACKIE CURTIS congratulated her, having been thrown out of her own play by Vacarro about a year earlier. (HW152)

LATE 1969: ANDY WARHOL RENTS HIS SUPERSTARS.

Andy Warhol offered to rent out his superstars, saying “This way, they can take the art home, have a party for it, show it to their friends, take Polaroids of it (which I will sign), make tape-recordings. And after the week is over, they’ll still have anecdotes.” JOE DALLESANDRO costs $4,500 per week. (JOE6)

END 1969: VALERIE SOLANAS THREATENS ANDY WARHOL.

Andy Warhol got a letter from VERA CRUISE who’d been sent to Matteawan for car theft and was “seeing a lot of VALERIE [Solanas]” who was in the same prison.

According to Vera, Valerie Solanas talked about ‘getting Andy Warhol’ when she got out of prison. (POP286)

JANUARY 2, 9, 16, 1968: BRIGID BERLIN STRIKES!

Brigid performed her one-woman show at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre called Bridget Polk Strikes! Her Satanic Majesty in Person - a "mixed media event" in which she phoned friends and family from the stage and broadcasted the live telephone conversations to the theatre audience without telling the person on the other line that they were part of the show. (PS)

Brigid Berlin:

"I did this theatre performance at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre. They had a monitor into the audience and I made telephone calls from the stage. Now, all the people that I called up did not know I was in a theatre giving a performance. I lay on the couch and called up Huntington Hartford, asked him for the money for an abortion, that I was deeply into trouble and he said he would give it to me and I said to the audience, would you hold on for a few minutes, I'm just going to race uptown in a cab, pick up the cash, and come back to the theatre and show it to you all - and that's exactly what I did do. Then I called my mother and father and I woke them up..." (BB)

A.D. Coleman reviewed the show and described the set which was "festooned with icicles of dripping transparent cellophane. On the stage is a mattress thrown over two stainless steel boxes. On this bed is a telephone. It is monitored and amplified: at the moment it is also off the hook, so the rafters ring with a busy signal. Beep, beep... (Ibid)

1968. ANDY WARHOL MOVES THE FACTORY.

After returning from filming LONESOME COWBOYS, Andy Warhol moved the Factory from 47th Street (the building was being torn down) to the sixth floor of 33 Union Square West, the eleven story Union Building across Union Square Park from S. Kleins, one and a half blocks from Max’s. It was Paul Morrissey who found the new loft and “Fred [Hughes] pointed out that the Union Building was mentioned in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story May Day, and ... the Communist party still had their offices on the eighth floor. SAUL STEINBERG was renting the top floor. (POP263) During the move to the new premises, the big curved couch was stolen when they left it on the street for a short period of time. (POP264)

Andy Warhol (via Pat Hackett in Popism):

“Everyone could sort of sense that the move downtown was more than just a change of place - for one thing, the Silver Period was definitely over, we were into white now. Also, the new Factory was definitely not a place where the old insanity could go on. Even though the ‘screening room’ had couches and a stereo and a TV and was clearly for lounging around, the big desks up front as you came in off the elevator gave people the hint that there was something going on in the way of business, that it wasn’t all just hanging around anymore. We spent more time than ever at Max’s, since it wsas so close and since Mickey still gave us credit for art. It was like an answering service for us - say we wanted to get in touch with a certain superstar, we’d just leave a message at Max’s for them to call the Factory or else just put out the word in the back room.” (POP265)

The Union Square factory "looked more like an office than an artist's studio... Paul [Morrissey] hired a new full-time employee from Sacramento named Jed Johnson to replace Gerard [Malanga]." (LD290) Gerard Malanga was on "an extended visit to Rome and played no role in the Factory's move". (DB278)

While Gerard was in Italy, he attempted to sell fake Warhol paintings in Rome. (DB291)

APRIL 1968: JOHN CALE AND BETSEY JOHNSON GET MARRIED.

The wedding had been previously postponed because Cale came down with hepatitis and had to spend several weeks in the hospital. (LR157)

Betsey Johnson:

"I must have established some kind of something for myself at Paraphernalia, the press was really great. Ladies Home Journal found out we were getting married and was going to pay for this huge bash. They just wanted to be there and photograph the freaky little rock'n'roll scene wedding ceremony and party even through we did it at City Hall. It was all set up and we had all the wedding invitations printed and they were all set ot go to the mailbox and the day that they were supposed to go in the mail John was turning bright yellow! He went to the hospital and I said, 'Well, dear, when shall I mail these out? I'll wait for you to get your blood test.' He didn't even leave the hospital. He went straight into quarantine with hepatitis and a non-existent liver... Ladies Home Journal was so outraged that they wanted me to go on with the whole wedding, go to City Hall, no John and they they said, 'Well later we'll take a picture of John and strip him in!'" (UT114)

MAY 1968: ANDY WARHOL FILMS SAN DIEGO SURF.

July 28 1968: ANDY WARHOL LEAVES THE HOSPITAL.

The first trip out of his house took him down to Forty-second Street (accompanied by VERA CRUISE (POP294), "where he sees a porno movie and buys the dirtiest magazines he can find.” (UV180) He has all the footage from LONESOME COWBOYS brought over and, working with a projector and splicer, he chops hours of footage down to a standard two - hour running time. (POP284)

JED JOHNSON moved into Andy's townhouse to take care of him. Andy's mother JULIA also lives there. According to Bob Colacello, although Jed and Andy were companions, it is unlikely that they ever had sex (BC74). Andy had his own separate bedroom.

1968: LOU REED AND BILLY NAME HAVE SEX.

Billy Name: "My favorite remembrance of Lou was at the second Factory. Lou came and everything and was getting ready to go and I said, 'Wait a minute, I didn't come.' So I made him sit on my face and he said grudgingly 'Okay,' so I could get off. So it was a playful relationship. But he could turn it off. I would never turn it off... He was a brat. Other than that, the relationship was purely bonding, real friends, love and respectful, really into art and esoteric literature and very young type things." (LR170)

1968: HOLLY WOODLAWN WORKS AS GO-GO DANCER.

Holly got a job as a weekend go-go dancer in a bar in Syracuse. She wore bikini panties with flourescent flowers that she made out of crepe paper, placed strategically around her crotch to hide any bulge, as well as over her nipples. When a black light was turned on, the flowers lit up “like Las Vegas” as she danced to the Bee Gees’ song To Love Somebody. She loved the job - “it beat being a file clerk, that was for sure.” (HW99) At the bar, she met a “cute twenty-two year old”. They had a “passionate romp” ending up in “an assortment of precarious positions” to hide her manhood. The father of the 22 year old owned a donut factory and they needed a Miss Donut to ride in the local Homecoming parade. Holly obliged happily, riding in the parade in the backseat of a Chevy convertible wearing a tiara and a sash that said Miss Donut 1968. In return, she got a year’s supply of free donuts. (HW102)

Holly Woodlawn ended up moving in with some queens she had met at the Sonewall, the gay bar on Christopher Street across from Sheridan Square in the West Village.

They lived in a small, tawdry rooming house on West Tenth Street and Hudson. One of her neighboors in the rooming house was Miss Liz Eden, a notorious transvestite prostitute who had as one of her regular clients, a married straight man named Sonny. In order to get money to pay for a sex change for Miss Eden, he robbed a bank. The story made headlines and was the inspiration for the film, Dog Day Afternoon starring Al Pacino. (HW112)

1968: HOLLY WOODLAWN SHOOTS UP FOR THE FIRST TIME.

SILVER GEORGE and his friend PETER shot Holly up with speed for her first time.

Holly Woodlawn first met Peter at the Stonewall where she went every night. He introduced her to factory regular Silver George who Holly later described as, “a tall darkly handsome gentleman from the South who was the closest thing to Rhett Butler that I’ve ever known...” (HW114)

George dealt in speed and Peter lived off Social Security benefits as a result of being declared legally insane. Holly called her first shot of speed as “the most fabulous thing I’ve ever felt in all my life!” (HW115)

At the Factory party, George introduced Holly to Andy who told her she was “so glamorous” and that she should be in one of his movies. When Andy asked Holly for her last name, she said that she didn't have one (not yet having come up with Woodlawn). (HW117)

JACKIE and CANDY rented a room together at the Hotel Albert on 10th Street and University Place, by which time Jackie, like Candy was in total drag. (POP292)

Andy Warhol:

“Jackie as a full-blown woman wasn’t that hard to take because he played it like a total comedy; it was his in-betweeen stage that had been so creepy. He’d started taking female hormones sometime in ‘68 and by that summer, when Paul was filming him and Candy in Flesh, he was in that weird part man/part woman stage - but still a long, long way from both.” (POP293)

NOV. 1968: BILLY NAME RETREATS TO HIS DARKROOM.

Andy Warhol:

“After Billy finished working on the galleys of a... he went into his darkroom and didn’t come out... In the mornings we would find take-out containers and yogurt cups in the trash, but we never knew whether he went out himself at night to get food or whether some of his friends brought it in to him... but then one day Lou Reed came by and spent three whole hours in the darkroom with Billy. Lou came out regretting that he had given him three Alice Bailey books on witchcraft. Billy had shaved his head completely because he believed the hairs were growing in, not out - and was only eating whole-wheat wafers and rice crackers now - following the white magic book that shows you how to rebuild your cell structure.” (POP290)

People who hung out at the Factory could also hear Billy talking to himself in the dark room in two different voices. (ibid)

NOV. 1968: GROVE PRESS PUBLISHES A: A NOVEL.

Warhol's book, a: a novel, was based on the amphetamine fueled tape recordings of Ondine that Warhol made in 1965. (LD318/DB297)

She was locked away again, with her bail raised to $50,000 and then to $100,000.

JANUARY 1967: THE CHELSEA GIRLS MOVES TO THE YORK CINEMA ON THE EAST SIDE.

Warhol had an distribution deal for the film with the Film-Makers’ Distribution Center (FDC), headed by JONAS MEKAS, SHIRLEY CLARKE, and LUIS BRIGANTE, to split the net profits fifty-fifty. (POP203)

Andy Warhol's The Chelsea Girls

Andy Warhol (via Pat Hackett in Popism):

“The FDC was getting calls from commercial distributors who wanted to handle it [The Chelsea Girls] nationally, but the FDC had already made their own arrangements with the Art Theater Guild, which had art houses all across the country.” (POP203)

“We were thrilled to have the attention of Hollywood - now it was only a matter of time, we felt, before 'somebody out there' would want to finance some of our breakthroughs... I mean, we’d done My Hustler back in ‘65 and now here Hollywood was in ‘67 just getting ready to shoot a movie called Midnight Cowboy about a male hustler in New York City.” (POP204)

ca. 1967: ANDY WARHOL MEETS ANDREA FELDMAN , GERALDINE SMITH AND PATTI D'ARBANVILLE.

All three - Andrea Feldman, Geraldine Smith and Patti D'Arbanville - were friends with each other and regulars at Max’s Kansas City. Andrea would appear in Imitation of Christ, Trash and Heat. Geraldine Smith and Patti D'Arbanville were in Flesh. (Excerpts from an interview with Patti D'Arbanville appear here.)

MARCH 1967: THE VELVET UNDERGOUND RELEASE THEIR FIRST ALBUM.

Andy Warhol was credited as "producer" on The Velvet Underground and Nico album. The album's release had been delayed because a special machine had to be made to manufacture the original cover, designed by Warhol, of a banana that could be peeled. (UT105)

Newspapers and magazines refused to take ads for for the album because of the controversial nature of the songs dealing with drugs and sadomasochism - apart from Grove Press' alternative publication, 'Evergreen Review'. The majority of radio stations refused to play it.

ERIC EMERSON sued MGM for putting his picture on the back cover without a release. MGM withdrew the album for six weeks while they airbrushed Eric's face off the cover.

LOU REED decided not to play again in New York because of the reaction to the album. He did not play New York again until 1970. (LR142-4)

SPRING 1967: CIAO MANHATTAN IS PLANNED.

CHUCK WEIN, GENEVIEVE CHARBIN, GINO PISERCHIO, JOHN PALMER and DAVID WEISMAN met to plan a non-Warhol film starring EDIE SEDGWICK and PAUL AMERICA. The film became Ciao Manhattan. (CNB)

APRIL 1967: THE CHELSEA GIRLS OPENS IN L.A.

Andy Warhol and entourage flew to L.A. for the opening of THE CHELSEA GIRLS at the Cinema Theatre. His entourage included PAUL MORRISSEY, SUSAN BOTTOMLY (INTERNATIONAL VELVET), LESTER PERSKY, JOHN WILCOCK, ULTRA VIOLET (ISABELLE COLLIN DUFRESNE), and ROD LA ROD (Andy's 'boyfriend'). For one radio interview - the Radio Oz` show on KPFK - International Velvet pretended to be Andy. (DB254)

APRIL 7- 8, 1967: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND PLAY THE GYMNASIUM.

The son of the Dom's Polish owner approached Andy Warhol with the idea of a new club in New York called The Gymnasium. The venue, located in the East 70s, was originally a Czechoslovakian health and social club. The gym equipment would be left out for the nightclubbers to use. But without an exclusive lease and a poor location, the club failed. (UT111)

MAY 1967:THE VELVET UNDERGROUND PARTICIPATE IN THE EPI FOR THE LAST TIME.

The Velvet Underground performed in Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable show for the last time at Steve Paul's The Scene nightclub. (UT123)

SPRING 1967: THE CHELSEA GIRLS GOES TO CANNES.

ANDY WARHOL, PAUL MORRISSEY, NICO, GERARD, LESTER PERSKY, RODNEY LA ROD, DAVID CROLAND, INTERNATIONAL VELVET and ERIC EMERSON took THE CHELSEA GIRLS to the Cannes Festival but never got to show it. (POP211/DB254).

According to Victor Bockris, he person in charge of screening the Critics' Choice films, Louis Marquerelle, decided not to show the film. Marquerelle was already nervous about the "dirty language" in another film that year - the English production of James Joyce's Ulysses. (LD269) Paul Morrissey recalls that the Cannes Festival organizers were afraid to show The Chelsea Girls because they feared a scandal over ten seconds of male nudity that the Festival officials had heard was in the film. (GB135)

After Cannes, Warhol and his entourage went to Paris, Rome and London. Taylor Mead, who had left New York in 1964 to live in Europe, saw The Chelsea Girls at the Cinematheque in Paris and it was one of the reasons he decided to return to New York.

When Warhol and his entourage reached London, they privately screened The Chelsea Girls at the home of Warhol's (gay) art dealer, ROBERT FRASER.

Andy’s most vivid memory of London was of “RODNEY LA ROD leaping onto PAUL MCCARTNEY’s lap the second he met him...(POP241) Rodney LaRod was Warhol's boyfriend at the time.

While the others returned to New York, David Croland and Susan Bottomly decided to go back to Paris for awhile and Eric Emerson stayed in London at Robert Fraser's home.

ca. MAY/JUNE 1967. ANDY WARHOL FILMS IMITATION OF CHRIST.

Andy Warhol shot IMITATION OF CHRIST the day after Taylor Mead returned to New York from having lived abroad. (POP)

According to Debra Miller in Billy Name Stills From The Warhol Films, Warhol filmed Imitation of Christ in January 1967 and shot sixteen 32 minute reels. The long version was shown once in November 1967 and then withdrawn from circulation. A month later it appeared as a segment in ****. In late 1969 Warhol and Paul Morrissey condensed it to 105 minutes and re-released it. (BN104)

In addition to Taylor Mead, Imitation of Christ featured Ondine, Brigid Berlin, Andrea Feldman, Nico and a former child actor named PATRICK TILDEN CLOSE who played the boy Elliot Roosevelt in Sunrise at Campobello with Ralph Bellamy and Greer Garson. (POP241) In Sunrise he was credited as Pat Close. (imdb)

Patrick Tilden Close also had an affair with Edie Sedgwick.

Nico:

"After Dino [Valente], Edie was very much in love with Patrick Tilden. He was Bob Dylan's best friend. Bob had been staying at the Castle before the Velvet Underground moved there.

When Edie and Patrick fell in love, I thought it was a very romantic thing. She lived downstairs in Severn Darden's old room, the spookiest room of all. It was haunted. There was a pentangle in the entrance. I heard the shrieks and funny noises... I hear things rather than feel them. Every morning at four, at the same spot, somebody... the ghost... would make this noise like a broomstick pounding on the floor." (EDIE349)

The Castle was in the Hollywood Hills and was often rented by rock bands. Warhol and his entourage had stayed there in May 1966 when the EPI played The Trip in L.A. Edie and Nico also stayed there without the rest of the Warhol crowd in the summer of 1967 - prior to when the Warhol crowd arrived in L.A. again to hype The Chelsea Girls during a run at the Presidio cinema in late August 1967.

MAY 30, 1967: THE CHELSEA GIRLS IS RAIDED IN BOSTON.

It was raided by the Boston vice squad detectives at the Symphony Cinema II, where it had been playing for 2 1/2 weeks. The manager of the cinema was found guilty of four charges of obscenity and fined $500.00 for each charge. Andy was delighted as it meant that he would be able to advertise the film as 'banned in Boston', "traditionally a publicist's dream". (DB254)

1967: LOU REED FIRES ANDY WARHOL AND NICO.

Andy Warhol took NICO to a performance of the Velvet Underground in Boston so she could join them onstage. They arrived late and LOU REED refused to let her go onstage.

Nico: "Everybody wanted to be the star. Of course Lou always was. But the newspapers came to me all the time. That's how I got fired - he couldn't take that anymore. He fired me." (LR145)

Andy arranged a meeting with Lou Reed. According to Reed, he fired Andy at the meeting. Warhol let him out of his contract with no argument, but still expected to be paid his 25% of the royalties from the Velvet Underground music created under his management. Warhol never saw any of the money. (LR146)

JULY 1967: THE FARM BECOMES THE CIRCUS.

The Balloon Farm, which had previously been The Dom, was renamed The Electric Circus. Albert Grossman sold his lease on the Balloon Farm to JERRY BRANDT for "a lot of money" (UT135) Brandt re-named the venue the Electric Circus. The space previously known as "Eric’s Fuck Room" - a small alcove with a couple of mattresses used by Eric Emerson - became the "Meditation Room" - “with carpeted platforms, Astro turf and a health food bar.” (POP215)

LATE JULY 1967: ANDY WARHOL FILMS I, A MAN.

I, A MAN was shot in late July and opened in August at the Hudson Theatre, where MY HUSTLER played. It was a “series of scenes of this guy, Tom [Baker], seeing six different women in one day in New York, having sex with some, talking with some, fighting with some." (POP228) Valerie Solanas, who would later shoot Warhol, played a small speaking role.

According to Ultra Violet, who had a conversation with Solanas at the time of the filming, Valerie said to her, "Love can only exist between two secure, freewheeling, groovy female females. Love is for chicks. Why do you let him exploit you? Why don't you sink a shiv into his chest or ram an ice pick up his ass?" (UV169)

I, A Man was a 100 minute, black and white sound film, featuring Tom Baker, Ivy Nicholson, Ingrid Superstar, , Cynthia May, Betina Coffin, Ultra Violet, Nico and Valerie Solanas. Valerie would later attempt to kill Warhol by shooting him in 1968.

AUGUST 4 1967: ANDY WARHOL MEETS VIVA (AGAIN)

Warhol ran into Viva at a party held by BETSY JOHNSON - who was engaged to JOHN CALE. John Cale and Betsy started living together when they were both staying at the Hotel Chelsea - later moving to Johnson's loft on La Guardia Place - living together for a year before getting married in April 1968. (UT113)

Betsey Johnson:

"... I remember Terry Riley and his peanut butter 'Eat Me Out', being around a lot, and La Monte Young. Nico under the sink! Nico used to come over and live under my big stainless steel sink. And the whole loft was just music. We had a little bed in the corner." (UT115)

Sterling Morrison:

"In the Fall of 1967 I moved in with Martha Dargan and her brother Tom on East 2nd Street. John moved in with Betsey at the Chelsea somewhere around this time, and Lou was here and there, mostly on Perry Street, and later at the loft on Seventh Avenue and 31st Street. Maureen [Tucker] was living on Fifth Avenue and 9th Street." (UT144)

At Johnson's party, Viva cornered Andy and asked if she could be in his next film. At the party she told Andy that she was in love with JOHN CHAMBERLAIN, the sculptor, but that he was in love with ULTRA VIOLET. According to Warhol, she also said that she’d just done a nude scene in a movie Chuck Wein was filming, 'Ciao, Manhattan', (see Edie bio). Viva asked Warhol if he was “planning to do a new movie soon” to which he replied that they would be shooting one the next day and gave her the address of where they were going to shoot. (POP229)

The next day Viva arrived at the location and appeared in THE LOVES OF ONDINE (originally a part of **** but eventually released as a separate feature).

AUGUST 1967: ANDY WARHOL MEETS JOE DALLESANDRO.

Warhol met Joe when Joe wandered by mistake into the apartment in the Village where PAUL MORRISSEY and Andy were shooting a reel for THE LOVES OF ONDINE. They asked him to be in the film. (POP239) Joe was working as a cutter in a bookbindery. (JOE20) He eventually ended up appearing in more Warhol films, although not a keen fan of Andy’s art, saying about it: “It’s worth something to somebody who thinks it’s worth something.” (JOE23)

AUGUST 1967: ANDY MEETS CANDY AND JACKIE.

Jackie later told Warhol how she met Candy in the same area.

AUGUST 1967: GERARD MALANGA LEAVES THE FACTORY.

Gerard Malanga went to Italy to show his own film, In Search Of The Miraculous, at the Bergamo International Film Festival. Gerard's film was about three generations of the Barzini family. (UT137) Malanga had met the model Benedetta Barzini at Robert Rauschenberg's loft on Saturday, February 6, 1966 and had become obsessed by her. (GMW49)

LATE AUG. 1967: THE CHELSEA GIRLS OPENS IN FRISCO.

AUTUMN 1967: HENRY GELDZAHLER BRINGS FRED HUGHES TO THE FACTORY.

Henry Geldzahler and Fred Hughes shared the elevator to the Factory with ONDINE who Henry introduced as "the greatest actor in underground cinema today. " Ondine replied, “I’m so glad you said that, because most people confuse me with being a vulgar pig.”(POP215/LD280)

AUTUMN 1967: ANDY WARHOL TOURS CAMPUSES WITH ROD LA ROD.

Andy Warhol and entourage went on a film/lecture tour of college campuses. ROD LA ROD, Andy’s boyfriend at the time, was with them and was described by a newspaper as “an Alabama man with shoulder-length brown hair. He claims to have two gods, Governor Wallace and Warhol, whom he calls ‘The Great White Father’”. (UV) Warhol's entourage also included Paul Morrissey and Viva who answered questions from the students after showing Warhol's films.

Viva:

"Andy stood on the stage, blushing and silent, while Paul Morrissey, the professor, delivered a totally intellectual anti-intellectual rapid-paced fifteen minute mini-lecture putting down art films, hippies and marijuana, saying things like 'At least heroin doesn't change your personality.' Then I... answered questions - 'The reason we make these movies is because it's fun, especially the dirty parts' - and advised them to drop out of school. Then I would rant about everybody in authority." (LD278)

OCT. 1967: NICO’S FIRST ALBUM IS RELEASED.

Chelsea Girl was Nico's first solo album. Recorded in April/May 1967, it was produced by Tom Wilson and featured Jackson Browne on some of the tracks. Nico had met Browne while performing at the Balloon Farm and they had a brief affair.

In addition to the SCUM Manifesto (Society to Cut Up Men), Valerie Solanas also wrote a play called Up Your Ass. MAURICE GIRODIAS, publisher of Olympia Press (who had to leave France after violating their pornography laws), gave her a six hundred dollar advance on a novel she wanted to write based on SCUM. Grove Press turned down her play, which she also submitted to Andy Warhol. (UV184/185)

1967: ULTRA VIOLET MEETS JACKIE CURTIS.

Jackie took Ultra to Jackie’s grandmother’s bar Slugger Ann on 2nd Avenue where Ultra meets CANDY DARLING (who is working there as a barmaid) for the first time. Candy was wearing a bra and shorts and carried a see-through bag in which a tampax was prominently displayed. (UV128/9)

1967: ALLEN MIDGETTE IMPERSONATES ANDY WARHOL.

Andy got into trouble when he sent ALLEN MIDGETTE out to colleges in Utah and Oregon for public appearances as Andy. The colleges didn't realize it was somebody else until four months later when somebody at one of the colleges compared a photo that appeared in the Voice with one that he’d taken of Allen on the podium. Andy had to go back to the colleges and appear as himself. (POP247-8)

MID-NOVEMBER 1967: CONQUEST OF THE UNIVERSE OPENS.

CHARLES LUDLAM’s play, Conquest of the Universe opened at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre on the Bowery. ULTRA VIOLET played Natolia, a queen from Saturn who spoke Middle English.

(UV124) Other Factory/Max’s regulars in the cast were TAYLOR MEAD, ONDINE, CLAUDE PURVIS, BEVERLY GRANT, MARY WORONOV, LYNN REYNER and FRANKIE FRANCINE. (POP250)

VERA CRUZ became obsessed with Mary and stalked her. When Vera followed her to the 14th Street IRT subway station, Mary attempted to kill her by pushing her onto the tracks when she heard a train coming. Vera escaped death when the train arrived on the other side of the platform - as it was an express train. (MW16)

1967: THE ROLLING STONES RELEASE SATANIC.

The Rolling Stones released the album, Their Satanic Majesties Request. CANDY DARLING had met the Stones in the Hotel Albert, a cheap hotel on 10th Street and Fifth Avenue and, according to Candy, they mentioned her in the song, In the Citadel. (POP251)

END 1967: AMERICA GETS PAID FOR MY HUSTLER.

Andy Warhol:

“Paul would sometimes go over to Union Square in the mornings to strip wood before coming up to 47th Street. One morning when he was down at 33, a young kid delivered a Western Union telegram there, at just about the time Paul was realizing that there were just too many painted wood surfaces for one person to do alone. When he noticed that the messenger was well mannered, he started up a conversation and found out his name was Jed Johnson, that he had just arrived in New York from Sacramento, and that he and his twin brother, Jay, were living right across the park in a fifth-floor walk-up on 17th Street. Paul hired him to help get the place in shape.” (POP264)

1966: ANDY WARHOL FILMS THE VELVET UNDERGROUND.

In addition to the Warhol footage of the Velvet Underground, other filmmakers also filmed the band during this period. Rosalind Stevenson filmed them in their apartment in 1965 and Jonas Mekas/Barbara Rubin filmed the Psychiatrists' Convention on January 8, 1966. They were also filmed at the Balloon Farm (previously the Dom) in October 1966 and Ron Nameth filmed them playing at Poor Richard's in Chicago in June 1966. (UT123)

Victor Bockris:

"January to April 1966 was the golden period for the Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol. After the psychiatrist's convention, Warhol shot a scintillating film of the band rehearsing at the Factory, SYMPHONY OF SOUND, which remains the single best visual record of the Velvet Underground. They also recorded sound tracks for two of Warhol's best movies shot at the beginning of the year, HEDY and MORE MILK YVETTE." (LR108)

According to Stephen Koch, More Milk Yvette was filmed in November of 1965. (SG147) Hedy was shot in February 1966 - inspired by Hedy Lamarr's arrest for shoplifting which appeared in the press on January 29, 1966. (BN68)

Lou Reed on Andy Warhol:

"The thing is that Andy works very hard. One of the things you can learn from being at the Factory is if you want to do whatever you do, then you should work very, very hard. If you don't work very hard all the time, well then nothing will happen. And Andy works as hard as anybody I know... Whenever he'd ask me how many songs I'd written that day, whatever the number was Andy would say, 'you should do more.'" (UT128)

The filming of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO: A SYMPHONY OF SOUND was broken up by the NYC police after complaints about the noise. (UT34)

1966: LOU REED WRITES FEMME FATALE ABOUT EDIE SEDGWICK.

Lou Reed:

"Andy said I should write a song about Edie Sedgwick. I said 'Like what?' and he said, 'Oh, don't you think she's a femme fatale, Lou?' So I wrote 'Femme Fatale' and we gave it to Nico." (LR107)

FEB. 1966: MARY WORONOV APPEARS IN HEDY.

HEDY was Mary's first full length Warhol film. The cast also included MARIO MONTEZ. Mary played the arresting officer in the film.

FEB. 8 - 13, 1966. ANDY WARHOL GETS UPTIGHT.

During the second week of February, Warhol presented a week of mixed media performances at the Film-Makers' Cinematheque which was then using a venue on West 41st Street. The ad for the event that ran in the February 3rd, 1966 issue of the Village Voice announced 'ANDY WARHOL, UP-TIGHT/presents live/The Velvet Underground, Edie Sedgwick, Gerard Malanga/Donald Lyons/Barbara Rubin/Bob Neuwirth/Paul Morrissey/Nico/Daniel Williams/Billy Linich', promising 'Up-tight Rock 'n Roll/Whip Dancers, Film-maker Freaks'. (DB221)

Also on exhibit were some of the photographs that NAT FINKELSTEIN had been taking of Warhol's entourage in the form of large contact sheets - the first documented show of large contact sheets.

The Velvet Underground and Nico performed while VINYL, EMPIRE and EAT were screened in the background, “and BARBARA RUBIN and her crew ran around the audience as usual with movie cameras and bright lights. GERARD was up on stage whipping a long strip of phosphorescent rope in the air. The whole event was called Andy Warhol Up Tight." (POP148) Barbara Rubin had suggested the name. (UT3)

Also included was the premiere of Warhol's film, More Milk, Yvette, (based on Lana Turner), starring Mario Montez.(DB221)

Nico:

"They also played the record of Bob Dylan's song, I'll Keep It With Mine, because I didn't have enough to sing otherwise. I had to stand there and sing along with it. I had to do this every night for a week. It was the most stupid concert I have ever done." (LR109)

Sterling Morrison:

"We most certainly did not want to be compared with Bob Dylan, or associated with him. We did not want to be near Bob Dylan, either physically or through his songs. When Nico kept insisting that we work up I'll Keep It With Mine, for a long time we simply refused. Then we took a long time to learn it (as long as we could take). After that, even though we knew the song, we insisted that we were unable to play it. When we finally did have a go at it on stage, it was performed poorly. We never got any better at it either, for some reason." (UT53)

Warhol also appeared on WNET TV in New York in February and announced he was sponsoring a new band, The Velvet Underground.

ca. JAN/FEB 1966: ANDY WARHOL TAKES OUT AN AD.

Andy Warhol puts an ad in the Village Voice advertising his services. The ad says: ‘I’ll endorse with my name any of the following: clothing, AC-DC, cigarettes, small tapes, sound equipment, ROCK ‘N” ROLL RECORDS, anthing, film, and film equipment, Food, Helium, Whips, MONEY; love and kisses Andy Warhol. EL 5-9941”

Andy Warhol:

”We had so many people hanging around all the time now that I figured in order to feed them all we’d have to get other people to support them - like find a restaurant that wanted us to hang around that would give us free meals.” (POP152)

In 1966 Warhol also appeared in Piero Heliczer's
underground film, Joan of Arc (above)

FEB. 13, 1966: EDIE SEDGWICK APPEARS IN THE NEW YORK TIMES.

Edie Sedgwick appeared in photographs, posing with ANDY WARHOL and CHUCK WEIN in the New York Times magazine. (AF201)

3RD OR 4TH WEEK OF FEB. 1966: EDIE SEDGWICK LEAVES ANDY WARHOL.

Edie Sedgwick left Andy Warhol after a public argument at the Ginger Man restaurant about money and her lack of role in the Velvet Underground. She left Andy to hang around with BOB DYLAN who, according to writer Victor Bockris, had an extreme drug problem with amphetamine.” (L&D244)

Although most accounts place the argument at the Gingerman, Gerard Malanga has written about an argument that took place at "a crowded table at Maxwell Plum (present were Andy, Paul Morrissey, Donald Lyons, Ingrid Superstar, Barbara Rubin, Nico, Chuck Wein, Lou Reed and John Cale)." (GMW117)

According to Malanga, Edie, unwilling to pick up the tab as was her usual habit, confronted Warhol about money for the films she had appeared in. Warhol protested that he wasn't making any money with the films and that she had to be patient. At one point she got up to make a phone-call, then returned to the table shortly thereafter and left the restaurant. (GMW117)

MARCH 3, 1966: KITCHEN, STARRING EDIE SEDGWICK, PREMIERES AT THE FILM-MAKERS' CINEMATHEQUE. (DB217)

MARCH 9, 1966: THE VELVETS GO TO COLLEGE.

Andy Warhol took The VELVET UNDERGROUND to perform at the college film society of Rutgers University and then on March 12th to the University of Michigan Film Festival in Ann Arbor. Warhol's entourage included the counter-culture journalist, John Wilcock, who would later write The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol, by John Wilcock and a Cast of Thousands, consisting of interviews with many of Warhol's superstars.

John Wilcock:

"The eleven member Warhol group (supplemented by accompanying cars) had rented a microbus for the 1,500 mile round-trip to Ann Arbor ($50 per day plus 10 cents per mile) and although it offered some of the comforts of home - including a toilet that, like the one in the 47th Street Factory, didn't work - it proved to be far from the most reliable mode of transportation. The most chaotic moments came on the way back when a stop was made in the parking lot of a pop art monstrosity called the White Hut Superking for everybody to order hamburgers. Even before Nico, blonde locks falling about the shoulders of her black leather jacket, had brought the bus to a halt, a police patrol car came snooping around to see what else it contained." (UT40)

MARCH 1966: BETSEY JOHNSON HAS A PARTY.

Betsey Johnson hired Warhol to stage a party at Paraphernelia, the flagship store of Pilgrim Clothes who had hired Johnson to design the clothes.The Velvet Underground, who had returned to New York after playing Ann Arbor, performed at the party. Nat Finkelstein took photos.

Nat Finkelstein:

"We staged a party in a fishbowl, a store window on Madison Avenue. Crowds gathered... the idea was that everybody who saw the party would buy clothes there. The girls showed the new fashion while they were dancing to the Velvet's music." (NF85)

MARCH 30, 1966: HOLLY WOODLAWN MEETS JACKIE CURTIS.

Candy Darling and Holly Woodlawn went to Candy’s friend Seymour’s house in the West Village to watch Barbara Streisand’s TV special Color Me Barbara on Semour’s color TV. Jackie Curtis was there - “an aspiring actor/playwright who worked as an usher at the Winter Garden Theater, where Streisand was starring in Funny Girl.” (HW76) Curtis wasn't in drag at this point, although Holly and Candy were.

APR. 2 - 27, 1966: ANDY WARHOL'S SECOND SHOW AT CASTELLI.

Andy Warhol's second show at the Leo Castelli gallery included the Cow wallpaper and the floating silver pillows. (L&D503/UW39)

Ronnie Cutrone:

"Andy said he wanted to end his painting career with those silver pillows, to let them fly away from the rooftop, but they didn't really fly away. It was a grand gesture; he was a master of the grand gesture." (UW59)

EASTER SUNDAY, 1966: EDIE SEDGWICK MAKES HER FIRST NON-WARHOL FILM. (EDIE285)

Bob Neuwirth:

"She [Edie Sedgwick] never made a film with Dylan. After Edie left Warhol, I was actually the first one to make a film with her. We made it on Easter Sunday in Eric Dolphy's old loft near the Fulton Fish Market - a Chaplinesque, satirical movie of Edie making breakfast and ending up with her wearing a nine-thousand-dollar leopard-skin coat and walking her huge rhinoceros, that big footstool of hers outfitted with four roller skates, up Fifth Avenue in the Easter Parade, pulling the rhino along behind her on a leash. It was very early in the morning. We'd been shooting since daylight. At one point on Park Avenue she tied her rhino to a fire hydrant, and the police, as a joke, gave it a ticket. I have footage of them giving her a ticket for parking her four-wheeled rhino, or actually her sixteen wheeled rhino." (EDIE285)

APRIL 1966: THE VELVETS PLAY THE DOM.

The Dom had been a Polish dance hall (Polsky Dom Narodny - the word “Dom” being Polish for home) called Stanley’s. The two people who had rented it from the owners did “sculpture with light” but were not ready to use the space until May. So Andy rented it during April to present the Plastic Inevitable. (POP156) Entry was $6 and it was a success, making $18,000 in the first week.

Sterling Morrison:

"But our actual salary from Paul Morrissey, who handled the business side for Andy, was five dollars a day, for cheese or beer at the Blarney Stone. He had a ledger that listed everything, including drug purchases - $5 for heroin. When the accountant saw it, he said 'What the hell is this?':" (LR122)

According to Gerard Malanga and Victor Bockris, all the people contributing to the show were paid the same amount - Lou Reed got the same for playing as Gerard did for dancing or Danny Williams for doing the lights: "On an average night at the Dom they would be paid a hundred dollars apiece". (UT52)

During the first week that the Dom was open, it took in $18,000.00.

While performing at the Dom, Lou Reed's Gretch guitar and record collection was stolen. (LR124)

DANNY WILLIAMS who did the lights/sound for the Exploding Plastic Inevitable would later mysteriously disappear in 1967 "off the coast of Cape Cod leaving his clothes by the side of his car." Although his body was never found, it is presumed to be a suicide. (GMW111)

Sterling Morrison:

"It was at this time that The Velvets started wearing dark glasses on stage, not through trying to be cool but because the light-show could be blinding at times." (UT54)

At the same time that the VELVETS were playing at the Dom, Andy’s film, MY HUSTLER was playing uptown at the Film-Makers’ Co-op and Warhol's silver helium-filled pillows and yellow and pink cow wallpaper was being shown at the Castelli Gallery. (POP162)

The final performance of The Exploding Plastic Inevitable at the Dom took place on April 30, 1966. (UT57)

1966: ANDY WARHOL MEETS RONNIE CUTRONE.

Ronnie Cutrone lived in the Velvet's apartment which was subleased from TOM O'HORGAN who would later direct the musical Hair. Cutrone would eventually work for Andy for ten years as his full-time painting assistant from 1972-82.

1966: ANDY WARHOL DISCOVERS ERIC EMERSON.

Andy Warhol noticed Eric Emerson dancing at the Dom - “...a small, muscular blonde kid made a ballet leap that practically spanned the dance floor". (POP212) Eric Emerson’s mother had sent him to ballet school as a youngster, while his father worked as a construction worker in New Jersey. Both Ronnie Cutrone and Gerard Malanga already knew Eric before Andy Warhol noticed him at the Dom. Eric had got married two years previously to someone he met at a party in Los Angeles. He fell in love instantly and they drove to Las Vegas the same night for a quick wedding.

Eric Emerson:

“I got really attached to my wife, and when she went out free-loving the way I did, I got crazy and went through a heavy gay scene for awhile...” (POP212)

1966: EDIE SEDGWICK FALLS APART.

Edie Sedgwick, “falling apart” and “hooked” on drugs “goes through eighty thousand dollars in six months...” ONDINE became her French maid “serving her drug paraphernalia and a saucer filled with speed” for breakfast. “Desperate for money, Edie steals English antiques and pieces of art from her grandmother’s elegant apartment and sells them to buy drugs.” (UV211) “Dealing drugs, she gets busted, goes to jail briefly, and is put on probation for five years”. (UV212)

1966: ANDY WARHOL PRODUCES THE VELVET UNDERGROUND LP.

Warhol invested some of the Dom money (along with an investment by NORMAN DOLPH, a former Columbia Records sales executive) to produce The Velvet Underground and Nico album. The Cameo-Parkway Studios on Broadway were rented for $2,500 for three nights. Lou Reed did not want Nico on the album and Nico wanted more songs to sing.

John Cale:

"Lou was paranoid and eventually he made everybody paranoid."

Andy Warhol:

"The whole time the album was being made, nobody seemed happy with it."

Lou Reed:

"Andy made a point of trying to make sure that on our first album the language remained intact. He would say, 'Make sure you do the song with the dirty words, don't change the words just because it's a record." (LR129-30)

The album was turned down by every record company in New York.

When Warhol and The Velvet Underground went Los Angeles to perform at the Trip, they met with various record companies to try and flog the album. Ahmet Ertegun rejected it, saying "no drug songs". Elektra rejected it, saying "no violas". (UT68)

Tom Wilson at Columbia (who was a friend of Nico) was interested and told the band to wait until he moved to MGM so that he could release them on the Verve label. They were eventually signed by MGM who also signed The Mothers of Invention at the same time. Tom Wilson suggested they make the album more commercial by adding more Nico songs and releasing one as a single. Lou complies by writing 'Sunday Morning', which Wilson later produced for the banana album. Andy suggested making it a song about paranoia which Lou did with lyrics like 'Watch out, the world's behind you, there's always someone watching you...' (LR135) Lou insisted on singing the song himself on the recording even though Nico sang it at live performances.

Although contracted to receive 25% of the Velvet's earnings, Andy Warhol never received any money from the album sales due to legal complications with the contract which failed to state what royalties the band would receive. (LR135)

MAY 3 - 18, 1966: THE VELVETS PLAY THE TRIP.

Poster for The Trip

Charlie Rothschild booked Warhol and the EXPLODING PLASTIC INEVITABLE (consisting of fourteen Factory regulars) to play at the Trip in Los Angeles. The Mothers of Invention featuring Frank Zappa opened for them and were cheered by the L.A. crowd. The Velvet Underground were greeted with boos. (UT65)

Lou Reed on Frank Zappa:

"He's probably the single most untalented person I've heard in my life. He's a two-bit pretentious academic, and he can't play rock'n'roll, because he's a loser. And that's why he dresses up funny. He's not happy with himself and I think he's right." (UT65)

Among the celebrities attending the opening night were JOHN PHILLIPS of the MAMAS AND THE PAPAS, RYAN O'NEAL, JIM MORRISON (who was a film student at UCLA) and CHER who commented that the Velvet's music would replace nothing, except perhaps suicide. (LR133) The reviews were terrible and on the third night the sheriff’s office shut the club down for disturbing the peace. They stayed in LA as Union rules stated that in order to be paid, they had to remain in Los Angeles, even if they didn't perform. (MW23-4)

Warhol and most of his entourage stayed in the Castle in Los Angeles - "a large imitation-medieval stone structure... where many rock stars put up their entourages at $500 a week." (LD250) Bob Dylan had just stayed there with Edie Sedgwick. Photographer Nat Finkelstein and Velvet road manager Faison both stayed at the Tropicana instead of the Castle. Sterling Morrison joined them there after a week and a half in the Castle. (UT65/7)

While in L.A. The Velvet Underground met Steve Sesnick who would become their manager in 1967. According to Sesnick, it was himself who originally came up with the concept for the Exploding Plastic Inevitable. He also said that it was himself who arranged for The Velvets to perform at the Fillmore on May 26 and 27. However, this contradicted Andy Warhol who, in Popism, said (via Pat Hackett) that Bill Graham kept calling Paul Morrissey to set up the date. (UT69)

Steve Sesnick:

"My room-mate at the time was Tim Hauser who was the founder of the Manhattan Transfer. I told him I had come up with this space idea. All that was an idea of film and dancing and music - space music - and he was working at the time on doing 30s and 40s so we were very diametrically opposed in our personal interests. I mentioned it to Andy at a party at the Factory and he said, 'Oh gee, Steve, that sounds great. Do you think we can do it?' I said, 'Yes,' and we had a series of meetings with Brian Epstein on the telephone through Nat Weiss. Danny Williams was the only one I remember, besides Andy and Edie Sedgwick, who was in on the original meetings for this whole idea. Epstein and Nat Weiss were partners. Nat was his American attorney. I was very friendly with Nat for a number of years, prior to his even getting into music. So having access to him I went to speak with him about this idea and he passed it on to Brian, and Brian went nuts over it. He said it really is fantastic and they did want to get involved. But their idea of what it was and mine and Andy's were just really different." (UT70)

MAY 26, 1966: THE EPI PLAYS SAN FRANCISCO.

EPI Poster

The Exploding Plastic Inevitable arrived in San Francisco to play for two nights at BILL GRAHAM's Fillmore Ball Room with the MOTHERS OF INVENTION and the early JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. The Warhol crowd hated the hippie culture of San Francisco. Bill Graham pulled the plug on the Velvets the second night when the band left the stage after leaning their instruments against the amplifiers creating a "barrage of sonic feedback".

Lou Reed:

"We had vast objections to the whole San Francisco scene. It's just tedious, a lie and untalented. They can't play and they certainly can't write... You know, people like Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead are just the most untalented bores that ever came up. Just look at them physically, I mean, can you take Grace Slick seriously? It's a joke! It's a joke! The kids are being hyped." (UT71)

While in San Francisco, the poet/playwright MICHAEL MCCLURE refused to sign a release for a film that Andy Warhol had made of McClure's controversial play 'The Beard'. (Warhol's film of the play starred Gerard Malanga and Mary Woronov).

to filmography

At a cocktail party that both Andy Warhol and Michael McClure attended in San Francisco, Warhol met someone identified as "RICHARD GREEN" by Victor Bockris. When Warhol returned to New York, Richard and himself entered into an "erotic correspondence" which led to Richard moving in with Warhol in October. "Richard Green" is probably Richard Rheem. Rheem appeared in the film Mrs. Warhol and there are several letters from him to Warhol in the archives of The Warhol museum. (W8/8/07)

After the second night in San Francisco Gerard Malanga was arrested in an all night cafeteria in North Beach for carrying an offensive weapon (his whip) and spent the night in jail. He had gone to the diner with Lou Reed and Nancy Worthington Fish, a friend of Warhol who was performing with The Committee. (UT73)

While In San Francisco, Lou Reed shot up some bad speed causing his joints to seize up and he was incorrectly diagnosed as having a terminal case of lupus.

Upon their return to New York, Lou Reed checked into Beth Israel hospital with a serious case of hepatitis and had a six week course of treatment. Nico left for Ibiza while the rest of the Velvets started rehearsing for an upcoming June booking in Chicago - a one week stint at Poor Richard's. ANGUS MACLISE returned as drummer and MAUREEN TUCKER switched to playing bass.

Gerard Malanga:

"Just before the Chicago gig, Andy, Angus MacLise and I went to visit Lou in the hospital, because Angus was going to play with the group in Chicago. I distinctly remember Lou telling Angus, 'Just remember you're only coming back for two weeks. You're on a temporary basis. I don't want you to get any idea that you're coming back into the group again." (UT74)

JUNE 1966: ANDY AND HENRY DRIFT APART.

Warhol and HENRY GELDZAHLER drifted apart when Henry was made Commissioner for the Venice Biennale and did not tell Andy and also did not use his art in the show (using instead HELEN FRANKENTHALER, ELLSWORTH KELLY, JULES OLITSKI, and ROY LICHTENSTEIN).

Henry Geldzahler:

"I had to get out of there to save myself. It was so unattractive I walked away. There was one tense moment. There was a blackboard in the studio and I wrote: 'Andy Warhol can't paint any more and he can't make movies yet.' That was when he was between the two. But he never forgot that." (L&D256)

JUNE 1966: MAY WILSON MOVES.

Artist MAY WILSON moved first into the Chelsea Hotel, then into a studio apartment next to the hotel at 208 West 23rd Street. VALERIE SOLANAS would store the gun she would later use to shoot Andy Warhol on June 3, 1968 under May's bed in a laundry bag in the studio apartment. (RE/WSW)

JUNE 21 - JULY 3, 1966: THE VELVETS PLAY POOR RICHARD'S.

The performed at Poor Richard's in Chicago without LOU REED who was recuperating from hepatitis at Beth Israel Hospital. Although NICO was advertised to appear, she stayed in Ibiza instead.

Poor Richard's was a club inside an poorly ventilated old church in which the temperature rose to 106 degrees. (UT75)

Angus returned to play drums, Maureen played bass and STERLING MORRISON and JOHN CALE did vocals. INGRID SUPERSTAR replaced MARY WORONOV as Gerard Malanga's dance partner. DANNY WILLIAMS flew in from San Francisco to do the lights. Warhol was supposed to attend to do interviews but sent BRIGID BERLIN in his place. RON NAMETH filmed one of the shows.

The Chicago shows were so successful that the band were held over another week. Originally booked until June 26, they stayed until July 3, 1966. (UT75)

While in Chicago the band was also hired by Playboy to perform at an afternoon fashion show which was written up in their VIP magazine. They also appeared on Studs Terkel's TV show and did some radio shows. (UT76)

It was at the Poor Richard's concerts that SUSAN PILE first met GERARD MALANGA and the rest of the E.P.I. crowd. The following month, on her way to the Newport Folk Festival with a friend from high school, she stopped into the Factory to say hello and Gerard introduced her to Andy.

Malanga needed help pulling together his literary output, beginning with a special issue of Film Culture magazine. Susan contributed an essay and typed/proofed most of the other content.

When Susan moved to New York to study at Barnard College, she ended up working at the Factory (until approximately February of 1968) and transcribed some of the tapes that would be published as 'A: A Novel' by Andy Warhol. She also looked after Nico's son, Ari, when the Velvet Underground played two nights a week at the Gymnasium. (S)

Susan documented her activities at the Factory in weekly letters to her friend and co-conspirator Edward K. Walsh who dated each letter upon its receipt.

Susan Pile [July 26, 1966]:

"Dear Ed,
...Indeed, I did start working for ('lurking about' might be more accurate) Andy and Gerard at the Factory, but nothing has happened - it’s total Catatonia until the filming starts (very late usually - the Factory never opens until 2pm daily). They’re filming tomorrow night, and we get to watch...[color sequences for Chelsea Girls with line-up of Superstars]." (S)

One of Susan's classmates at Barnard was Pat Hackett who would also later work for Warhol. Hackett co-wrote 'Popism' with Warhol and, after his death, edited The Andy Warhol Diaries, published in 1989.

SUMMER 1966: INTERNATIONAL VELVET JOINS THE FACTORY.

SUSAN BOTTOMLY (INTERNATIONAL VELVET) was “the new girl in town.” (POP175) Her father was a district attorney in Boston and her family paid her rent at the Chelsea Hotel and gave her an allowance. (POP175)

Andy Warhol (via Pat Hackett in Popism):

“Gerard stayed with Susan at the Chelsea for the first couple of months she was in town, and all that time he was writing poems to her and about her. Her parents weren’t happy with her new ‘career’ - modeling in New York - and later on, when she was on the cover of Esquire, phototographed in a garbage can (‘Today’s Girl, Finished at 18’), they were really upset... but they went on supporting her, and she went on supporting lots of her friends.” (POP176)

SUMMER 1966: ANDY WARHOL SHOOTS THE CHELSEA GIRLS.

ca. SUMMER/AUTUMN 1966: BOB DYLAN'S MANAGER TAKES OVER THE DOM.

BOB DYLAN's manager AL GROSSMAN and Oliver Coquelin took over the Dom and renamed it the Balloon Farm.

PAUL MORRISSEY arranged for Nico to sing in a small bar underneath the Dom called Stanley's. (LR139) After a few weeks of Nico singing alone to tape recorded guitar solos by Lou Reed, Paul Morrissey hired unknown folk singer TIM BUCKLEY to accompany her, later replacing him with an unknown JACKSON BROWNE who Morrissey discovered sitting at the bar - Jackson Browne having come there to hear Tim Buckley. Browne ended up writing some of the tracks on Nico's first solo album, Chelsea Girl as well as performing on it. (UT86/90) Jackson Browne lived with Nico for awhile on Columbus Avenue at 51st Street. (UT106)

The Velvet Underground played the Balloon Farm (The Dom) in October. SUSAN PILE was there and recorded her impression of the performance in letters to Ed Walsh.

LATE AUGUST 1966: ANDY WARHOL GOES TO LOS ANGELES

Andy Warhol and his entourage (Paul Morrissey, Ultra Violet, Ondine and Billly Name) went to Los Angeles for personal appearances when The Chelsea Girls opens at the Presidio Theater. (POP231)

SEPT. 3 - 4, 1966: THE EPI GOES TO PROVINCETOWN.

The Exploding Plastic Inevitable played the Chrysler Art Museum in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Steve Sesnick, who would later become the manager of The Velvet Underground after they were dropped by Warhol in 1967, arranged the dates. In addition to The Velvet Underground (consisting of Maureen Tucker, John Cale, Lou Reed and Sterling Morrison) and EPI regulars Gerard Malanga, Ronnie Cutrone, Mary Woronov, road manager Faison, Warhol assistant Paul Morrissey and Andy Warhol, the group also now included Susan Bottomly (aka International Velvet), her boyfriend, fashion illustrator David Croland - and Eric Emerson who stayed with Nico in Provincetown.

EPI Poster

The police interrupted one of the performances and untied Eric Emerson from a post (which he was strapped to in preparation for being whipped by Mary Woronov) in order to retrieve some belts and whips that were stolen from a leather store in Provincetown. (UT83)

There was also a problem with the landlord of the house that Warhol's entourage had rented in Provincetown. The toilets in the house had stopped up and Warhol's stars were throwing shit out the window.

And Eric Emerson stole a work of Art from the town's museum "just to see if he could get away with it. Paul Morrissey had to act as a liaison between Eric and the Museum, restoring the painting in order to avoid having charges pressed." (UT84)

Gerard Malanga expressed his displeasure with direction that the EPI show was taking in a letter to Warhol that he wrote in his diary, but never sent. (UT82)

SEPTEMBER 1966: PAINTERS AND POETS DRIFT TO MAX'S.

The Factory crowd started going regularly to “a two-story bar/restaurant on Park Avenue South off Union Square that MICKEY RUSKIN had opened in late ‘65” called Max’s Kansas City. Previously, Mickey had a “place on East 7th Street called Deux Megots that later became the Paradox, and then he’d had the Ninth Circle, a Village bar with a format similar to what Max’s would have, and then an Avenue B bar called the Annex... at Deux Megots, he’d held poetry readings - and now painters and poets were starting to drift into Max’s.” (POP185)

SEPT. 15, 1966: THE CHELSEA GIRLS OPENS AT THE CINEMATHEQUE.

The Film-makers' Cinematheque was on 41st Street at the time, but due to public demand the film was moved to the larger Cinema Rendezvous on West 57th Street.

According to BILLY NAME, Chelsea Girls made $20,000 in one week at the Regency Theater. (UW42)

Billy Name:

"I think Chelsea Girls and Lonesome Cowboys are the classic Warhol films. The previous movies are really art films." (Ibid)

Andy Warhol:

“It was the movie “that made everyone sit up and notice what we were doing in films... It was eight hours of film, but since we were projecting two reels side by side on a split screen, it only took about half that time. Parts of it were in color but it was mostly black and white.” (POP185)

MARY WORONOV’s mother sued Andy for showing the film without a release and settled out of court. (L&D259)

AUTUMN 1966: STERLING AND JOHN CALE MOVE IN TOGETHER.

Sterling Morrison:

"In the Fall of 1966 John and I got a place on East 10th Street just east of First Avenue. Shortly thereafter, Lou [Reed] got his place on East 10th just west of First Avenue, so the three of us were living about 50 yards apart. We would have lived together if we could have found a place large enough. We were hanging around together day and night." (UT97)

SEPT. 1966: DANNY WILLIAMS DROWNS.

DANNY WILLIAMS, who had rejoined the EPI (minus Andy, Nico and Lou) in June for a week of shows in Chicago, drove to the shore, undressed, leaving his clothes "in a neat pile by the car", swam into the sea and drowned to death. (LD257)

OCTOBER 5, 1966: ANDY WARHOL SHOOTS THE FRENCH BOB DYLAN.

French singer Antoine (real name: Pierre Antoine Muracciolo), known as the French Bob Dylan, arrives in New York and is greeted at the airport by Nico holding a bunch of bananas. At the Factory Warhol gives him a poster featuring a peel-off banana and films (in color) Antoine, Nico and Susan Bottomly (International Velvet) sitting under the poster eating bananas. (The footage has become known as Nico/Antoine.) He also shoots Antoine's black and white Screen Test. (AD30)

OCTOBER 1966: EDIE SEDGWICK GETS BURNED.

The candles that EDIE SEDGWICK always had burning in her apartment on East 63rd Street started a fire in the middle of the night and she was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital with burns on her arms, legs and back. (POP188)

OCTOBER 29, 1966. THE EPI GOES TO BOSTON.

The Velvet Underground and Nico performed as part of Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable show at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in Boston Massachusetts. Warhol also exhibited paintings in an adjoining room of the Boston Institute of Contemporary Arts.

Ronnie Cutrone and Rona Page (aka Rona Paige) - the girl who Ondine slapped in The Chelsea Girls - joined Gerard Malanga onstage for the last number. (UT98)

Susan Pile, who was also part of the Warhol entourage, recalled the event in her weekly correspondence to Ed (aka Edward K. Walsh).

HALLOWEEN 1966: JACKIE CURTIS DOES DRAG.

Jackie Curtis dressed in full drag for the first time, with the help of Candy Darling and Holly Woodlawn. (HW297)

NOV. 3 - 7, 1966: THE EPI TOURS THE MIDWEST.

The Exploding Plastic Inevitable show did a short tour of the Midwest, with Paul Morrissey acting as road manager. Some of the venues paid less than $1,000 a night. Nico was now sleeping with John Cale. (LR141) Warhol did not accompany them on this trip. (GMW59-61) From the end of October through mid-December the EPI played various dates in the Midwest, the East Coast and Canada. (UT97)

NOVEMBER 1966:THE DOORS PLAY ONDINE.

The Doors came to New York for the first time and played at the nightclub, Ondine.

Andy Warhol:

“Gerard took one look at JIM MORRISON in leather pants just like his and he flipped. ‘He stole my look!’ he screamed, outraged." (POP189)

Jim Morrison had seen Gerard Malanga performing earlier that year at The Trip in L.A., as part of the Exploding Plastic Inevitable. Morrison was supposed to be the star of Andy Warhol's first "blue" (porn) movie. According to Warhol, Morrison had "agreed to bring a girl over and fuck her in front of the camera but when the time came, he never showed up.” (POP190)

NOVEMBER 20, 1966: ANDY WARHOL GIVES AWAY A BRIDE.

The event was called "The Mod Wedding." The bridal couple, Randi Rossi and Gary Norris won the wedding in a competition on WKNR radio. Films and psychedelic lighting were courtesy of Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable. Music was by the Velvet Underground.

The Mod Wedding newspaper clip

The unusual wedding ceremony included a man smashing a car with a sledgehammer and Warhol applying paint and ketchup to to a woman's paper dress while she was wearing it. Warhol's wedding gift to the couple was an inflatable copy of a Baby Ruth candy bar measuring five feet long. The couple was also invited to the Factory for a screen test. The wedding was part of the Carnaby Street Fun Festival in Detroit which also featured the Yardbirds, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Sam the Sham and Dick Clark. (AWM47)

NOV. 1966: WARHOL IS SUED FOR USING FLOWERS.

PATRICIA CAULFIELD, who took the photograph that Warhol used for his Flower paintings, brought a lawsuit against him. After a "long, costly court case", Warhol eventually agreed to give her several paintings and a percentage of all profits from future reproductions of the painting as prints. (LD260)

1966: SUSAN AND GERARD BREAK UP.

After breaking up with Gerard, Susan Bottomly (International Velvet) started seeing DAVID CROLAND. Andy Warhol had met David Croland “at a party Paraphernalia had for those big earrings he designed.” (POP178) Gerard Malanga started seeing model BENEDETTA BARZINI, the daughter of author LUIGI BARZINI. (POP176)

1966: HOLLY WOODLAWN ALMOST GETS A SEX CHANGE.

Holly went to the Johns Hopkins Medical Centre in Baltimore to get a sex change with money given to her by her (straight) boyfriend, Jack. When she found out that she had to wait a year, she used the money for a shopping spree instead. (HW96)

WINTER 1966: ANDY WARHOL FILMS KISS THE BOOT.

Andy Warhol filmed GERARD MALANGA and MARY WORONOV performing their whip dance at the Factory and called it KISS THE BOOT - after the lyrics of the LOU REED song Venus in Furs. (BN84)

to filmography

DECEMBER 1966: ANDY WARHOL DESIGNS ASPEN.

Each issue of Aspen- the "magazine in a box" - had a different guest editor.The December issue was designed by Andy Warhol and David Dalton and looked like a box of FAB detergent. The issue contained a flip book which. when flipped in one direction, presented Jack Smith's Buzzards Over Broadway and, in the other direction, Andy Warhol's Kiss. (JS147)

2ND WEEK OF DEC. 1966: ANDY WARHOL SPLITS UP WITH "RICHARD GREEN."

The day after Warhol threw "Richard Green" (as referred to in the Bockris biography of Warhol but who was probably Richard Rheem) out of his townhouse, Warhol started seeing Rod La Rod.

Gerard Malanga:

"It appeared to be a physically violent relationship, but Rodney was always very corny about his physical overtures towards Andy. It wasn't like he slugged him, they were always love taps, or Andy pushing him away or trying to block the punches." (LD267-8)

DEC. 1966: ANDY FILMS GINSBERG AND ORLOVSKY.

Warhol filmed the poet Allen Ginsberg and his boyfriend, Peter Orlovsky for their SCREEN TESTS.

Susan Pile [December 1966]:

...Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky arrive at the Factory for their Screentests. I am introduced and they blow me (goodbye kisses) upon their departure, in the midst of another argument between Rene [Ricard] and Gerard with me in the middle. Everyone is at the Factory... Billy Linich insists that everyone leave because of the vice raid, and every one goes - Andy, Rodney, Mary, Gerard, Billy Smith and me--in the limousine.... We proceed to Il Mio at the Delmonico Hotel for a party with the Yardbirds, me very casually school-clothed and looking vile. Il Mio=ultra chic. Gerard is doing dying swans, and I have to dance with him.... (S)

Susan was told that Antononi originally wanted The Velvets for his movie Blow Up, but that the part went to the Yardbirds instead.

Ginsberg had originally met Orlovsky in December 1954 and they became lovers. Warhol had previously filmed them in COUCH.

Allen Ginsberg:

"I was interested in the films, the civil liberties and the beautiful boys he [Warhol] had. But they were unobtainable or in another realm of some sort. I didn't find any serious Angels there to talk to who wanted to know about poetry." (GAB331-2)

DEC. 1966: THE CHELSEA GIRLS PLAYS THE REGENCY.

The film moved further uptown to the Regency on Broadway and 68th after leaving the Cinema Rendevous on West 57th Street.

JAN. 1965: LOU REED BECOMES A WARLOCK.

Lou ran into college friend Sterling Morrison on the D train in the New York subway. They formed a band with John Cale and Angus MacLise, calling themselves the Warlocks (occasionally calling themselves the Falling Spikes). (LR80-97/UT23)

JAN. 1965: ANDY WARHOL FILMS DRINK.

When Warhol ran into Emile de Antonio one afternoon on the street, they went to the Russian Tea Room for a drink. Andy suggested they make a movie together and "De" held up his drink, saying, "Okay Andy, I’ll do something for you that I’m sure nobody’s ever offered to do for you and you can film it: I’ll drink an entire quart of Scotch whiskey in twenty minutes ...” They went to the Factory to film it and "De" eventually passed out in a drunken stupor. Warhol called the seventy minute film DRINK to use as a trilogy with EAT and SLEEP. When Andy showed it at the Factory, De threatened to sue him if he ever showed it publicly. (POP89/90)

1965: JOE DALLESANDRO HITCHHIKES TO L.A.

Joe and his and friend Stanley hitchhiked from Mexico to L.A. At the bus station in Los Angeles, Joe was approached by a man who asked Joe if he would like to do some modeling. During the three months he was in L.A. Joe modeled nude for muscle mail-order skin magazines and also worked at a pizza parlor as a dishwasher. When Joe was arrested for assault after a fight, the court bought him a ticket to New York to return to his father. He ended up getting a “crummy little apartment” on 10th Street and hanging out with the “denizens of Times Square, experimenting with drugs,” and at one point worked at a pizza parlor in Queens. His dream was to own his own pizza parlour. (JOE20)

1965: ONDINE OPENS.

The disco Ondine (no relation to the person) opened on E. 59th Street. GERARD MALANGA picked up MARISA BERENSON there on her first modeling trip to New York and brought her to the Factory for a screen test. EDIE SEDGWICK (with her arm in a cast from her car accident ) went to Ondine often. Warhol described her dance moves - which people called "The Sedgwick" - as "sort of Egyptian, with her head and chin tilting in just the right beautiful way" whereas "everybody else was doing the jerk." (POP99)

1965: MARY WORONOV MEETS GERARD MALANGA.

Mary originally met Gerard through a friend of a friend named MURRAY at Cornell University. Gerard filmed her walking across a bridge and called the film, Mary on Triphammer Bridge. She met him again when her art class visited the Factory on a field trip. He told her that Andy was making SCREEN TESTS and suggested they do one of her. She stayed at the Factory while her classmates went back to Cornell without her. When she returned to Cornell, she started taking the Greyhound bus to New York as often as possible. She eventually left Cornell permanently when Andy invited her on a trip to California with other Factory regulars in 1966. (MW15)

1965: ANDY WARHOL MEETS ULTRA VIOLET.

According to Andy, he met Ultra Violet “when she walked into the Factory in a pink Chanel suit and bought a big Flowers painting that was still wet for five hundred dollars.” (POP211)

Andy Warhol on Ultra Violet (via Pat Hackett in Popism):

“She was past a certain age, but she was still beautiful; she looked a lot like Vivien Leigh... Ultra would do almost anything for publicity. She’d go on talk shows ‘representing the underground,’ and it was hilarious because she was as big a mystery to us as she was to everybody else... She’d tell journalists, ‘I collect art and love’. But what she really collected were press clippings.” (POP211)

1965: ANDY WARHOL GOES INTERNATIONAL.

Warhol had one-man exhibitions in Europe throughout the year, including Paris, Milan, Turin, Essen, Stockholm, Buenos Aires and Toronto. (BC28)

MARCH 1965: ANDY WARHOL FILMS HORSE.

EDIE SEDGWICK appeared in VINYL with an otherwise all male cast, including GERARD MALANGA, JOHN MCDERMOTT and ONDINE. 70 minutes, B&W, general concept by playwright RONALD TAVEL. (UV208) VINYL was Andy’s “interpretation of A Clockwork Orange with Gerard as a juvenile delinquent in leather saying lines like ‘Yeah, I’m a J.D. - so what.’ (POP124) Warhol had paid $3,000 for the rights to the book. (AWM51) VINYL was first shown to the public on June 4th at Jonas Mekas' Cinematheque. (L&D219)

The article "Underground Clothes" appeared in Life magazine with photographs by Howell Conant, featuring some of Andy Warhol's superstars in a fashion spread - including the model Imu who Warhol filmed for a Screen Test and Imu and Son. The fashion editor of LIfe at the time was Sally Kirkland, Sr., the mother of Sally Kirkland whose Screen Test was included in The Thirteen Most Beautiful Women. (AD109)

MARCH 19/20/21, 1965: COUCH EXCERPT IS SHOWN AT ST. MARKS CHURCH.

An excerpt from Couch featuring Gerard Malanga and Piero Heliczer was shown at the church, along with work by George Peters, Bob Cowan, and Alfred Leslie among others.

MARCH 22, 1965: CASTRO OPENS.

Warhol's film, The Life of Juanita Castro premiered at the Film-Makers Cinematheque. (DB217) It was filmed at WALDO BALART’s apartment on West 10th Street. RONALD TAVEL wrote the script, inspired by Waldo who also appeared in the film and whose sister had been married to FIDEL CASTRO. Fidel had divorced her just before he became Premier. (POP111)

SPRING 1965: LESTER PERSKY HAS A PARTY.

Lester gave a party at the Factory for The Fifty Most Beautiful People - a party which lasted until 5:00 pm the following day. JUDY GARLAND arrived from the elevator carried by five boys on their shoulders. DAVID WHITNEY danced by “in the arms of RUDOLPH NUREYEV while TENNESSEE WILLIAMS danced by in the arms of MARIE MENKEN. EDIE spent a lot of time “laughing” with BRIAN JONES. Also at the party were ALLEN GINSBERG, WILLIAM BURROUGHS and MONTGOMERY CLIFT (POP101-3) GERARD MALANGA said that “it was at ‘The Fifty Most Beautiful People’ party that the stars went out and the superstars came in, that there were more people staring at Edie than at Judy.” (POP105)

SPRING 1965: THE DREAM WEAPON IS LAUNCHED.

PIERO HELICZER and ANGUS MACLISE organized a multimedia happening at the old Cinematheque called Launching the Dream Weapon. Lou Reed, John Cale, Angus MacLise and Sterling Morrison performed music behind a movie screen that Piero's films were being projected on. (UT25)

Piero had lived next door to Reed and Cale in their apartment building on Ludlow Street, but had moved to a fifth floor walk-up at 450 Grand. Angus also lived in the same building on Ludlow Street.

Musician Tony Conrad had also lived with John Cale in the apartment building on Ludlow Street:

"A lot of people went through that building on Ludlow Street. Mario Montez... lived downstairs, Angus (MacLise) was living upstairs. John (Cale) and I were there and Piero Heliczer... had the apartment next door." (UT24)

MAY 1965: ANDY WARHOL RETIRES.

ANDY, EDIE, GERARD and CHUCK WEIN flew to Paris for Andy’s Flowers show at ILEANA SONNABEND’s gallery at 37 Quai des Grandes-Augustins, going to nightclubs like Castel’s and Regine’s club - New Jimmy’s. According to Warhol, they had just filmed What’s New Pussycat at Castel’s and “it seemed like the whole town was popping with stars....” (POP112) In Paris Andy announced that he was going to retire from painting in order to spend more time making movies. (POP113)

JOHN ASHBERY reviews the exhibition for the international edition of the New York Herald Tribune (May 17, 1965), referring to Warhol's visit as "the biggest transatlantic fuss since Oscar Wilde brought culture to Buffalo in the nineties." (AD33)

After Paris, Warhol and entourage traveled to London, visiting art dealer ROBERT FRASER, attending a poetry reading by ALLEN GINSBERG and posing for photographs by DAVID BAILEY and MICHAEL COOPER. After London they flew to Madrid, then on to Tangier which Andy thought “smelled everywhere like piss and shit, but naturally everyone thought it was great because of all the drugs.(POP114)

JUNE 19/20, 1965: POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL PREMIERES AT ASTOR PLACE PLAYHOUSE.

POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL premiered at the Film-Makers' Cinematheque on a double bill with VINYL. The venue used by the "cinematheque" was the Astor Place Playhouse.

GERARD MALANGA brought PAUL MORRISSEY to see VINYL. Paul started hanging out at the Factory while they were shooting films - at first just sweeping the floor or looking through slides and photos. He wanted to shoot sound movies himself but didn’t have the money to rent all the sound equipment and was often asking Andy’s sound man, BUDDY WIRTSCHAFTER lots of questions. (POP181)

JUNE 12, 1965: SCREEN TEST #2 OPENS.

SCEEN TEST NO. 2, starring Mario Montez, premiered at the Film-Makers' Cinematheque at the Astor Place Playhouse. (DB217)

JULY 1965: ANDY WARHOL GETS A VIDEO CAMERA.

Norelco loaned a video camera to Andy Warhol for promotional purposes. Andy used it to videotape BILLY NAME giving EDIE SEDGWICK a haircut out on the fire escape of the Factory. (POP119)

Warhol also used the video equipment for OUTER AND INNER SPACE starring Edie Sedgwick. Edie appeared smoking and talking, seated next to a television monitor on which her image also appeared. (Unfortunately the sound on Outer and Inner Space was so distorted that Edie's monologue was mostly unintelligible.)

OCT. 7 - NOV. 21, 1965: THE ICA EXHIBIT.

Andy Warhol had his first American museum exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. The place was mobbed by college students. Warhol's entourage included SAM GREEN, EDIE SEDGWICK, BABY JANE HOLZER, KENNY LANE, ISABEL EBERSTADT, TAYLOR MEAD and GERARD MALANGA. Sam Green (who Candy Darling would later move in with) had actually taken down all the paintings before the opening because he feared that they would be damaged by the expected mob. (EDIE252)

ca. NOVEMBER 1965: BABY JANE HOLZER LEAVES THE FACTORY.

Holzer left the Warhol crowd after filming her last movie, CAMP. She had become disillusioned with the amount of drug taking at the Factory and the people who were hanging out there. After leaving the Factory crowd, she continued to amass wealth by investing in real estate, later opening an ice cream shop in Palm Beach, Florida called Sweet Baby Jane's. (UW47). She also became a successful producer of plays and movies including The Kiss of the Spider Woman. (UV245) She stayed in touch with Warhol throughout the eighties and they would often attend the same social events.

NOV. 22 - 23, 1965: ANDY WARHOL EXPANDS CINEMA.

ANDY WARHOL presented split screen projections and a rock group at Jonas Mekas' Expanded Cinema festival at the Film-Makers' Cinematheque. Other participants in the festival included Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, Nam June Paik, La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela and Jack Smith.

David Bourdon: "The various presentations explored the uses of multiple screens, multiple projectors, hand-held projectors, interrelated screen and live images, moving slide projections, kinetic sculpture, balloon screens, video projections, and many light and sound improvisations." (DB218)

NOV. 1965: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND IS NAMED.

LOU REED's band changed its name to the VELVET UNDERGROUND after the title of a "cheap paperback about suburban sex."

Rock journalist ALFRED G. ARONOWITZ offered to manage The Velvet Underground and they accepted. He arranged for them to open for another group he managed, Myddle Class, on December 11 at the Summit High School in Summit, New Jersey for which they were paid $75.00. This was the first time they used the name The Velvet Underground. They played after a band called 40 Fingers and before The Myddle Class. They opened with 'There She Goes Again', then played 'Venus in Furs' and ended with 'Heroin'. (UT28-29).

Angus quit the group before then, after learning that he would "have to show up at a certain time-and start playing-and then end," at a certain time which he couldn't handle. He was replaced a few days before the gig by MAUREEN (MO) TUCKER, the sister of Lou's Syracuse college friend, Jim Tucker. Jim Tucker had been Sterling Morrison's roommate at Syracuse University in a room at Sadler Hall on the floor beneath Lou Reed's own room. (LR98-9/UT19)

NOV. 22, 1965: HORSE PREMIERES.

HORSE, starring Tosh Carillo, LARRY LATREILLE and GREGORY BATTCOCK premiered at the Film-Makers' Cinematheque. (DB217)

DEC. 10, 1965: HARLOT PREMIERES.

HARLOT, starring MARIO MONTEZ, premiered at the Cafe Au Go Go on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. (DB217)

DEC. 15, 1965: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND PLAY BIZARRE.

The VELVET UNDERGROUND began a two week run at Cafe Bizarre, "a relatively dead club on West 3rd Street just east of Macdougal Street in the heart of Greenwich Village" - where Andy Warhol saw them perform.

The residency was arranged by their new manager Alfred Aronowitz to give The Velvet Underground some experience and "to acquire some chops". In addition to doing some of their own material, The Velvet Underground also played cover versions of songs such as 'Carol' and 'Little Queenie'. The owner of Cafe Bizarre refused to let them use drums ('too loud') so drummer Maureen Tucker played the tambourine instead.(UT29/31)

The band was fired two days after Warhol saw them. They were fed up at having been forced to work on Christmas Day "and wanted to get fired, so when the manager told them that if they played 'The Black Angel's Death Song' one more time they'd be asked to leave, they cranked out their best version ever." (UT31)

Andy Warhol was looking for a band to manage for a nightclub which he had been asked to host by impresario MICHAEL MYERBERG - who had brought Beckett's play Waiting for Godot to the USA in 1956. (LR101) Warhol had previously tried to put together a rock and roll band in 1963 with LA MONTE YOUNG and WALTER DE MARIA. (LR105)

Mary Woronov: "It was like bang! They [Velvet Underground] were with Andy and Andy was with them and they backed him absolutely. They would have walked to the end of the earth for him. And that happened in one day!" (LR113)

Myerberg's interest in the project cooled off after he saw the band performing with Warhol's films at the Cinematheque during the second week of February 1966. (UT36)

DEC. 1965: EDIE SEDGWICK MAKES HER LAST ANDY WARHOL FILM (SORT OF).

Edie Sedgwick's last "official" Andy Warhol film was LUPE. She had become increasingly convinced that everybody in New York was laughing at her because of her Warhol roles. After befriending Bob Dylan she was under the impression that Dylan's manager was going to offer her a contract. (POP123) (According to some references, Warhol also filmed Edie in THE ANDY WARHOL STORY in November 1966 - although the footage for this may have been lost/destroyed).

Andy filmed Lupe in Panna Grady’s apartment in the Dakota on Central Park West and 72nd Street.

Andy Warhol (via Pat Hackett in Popism):

“Panna was a hostess of the sixties who put uptown intellectuals together with Lower East Side types - she seemed to adore the drug-related writers in particular.” (POP)

Lupe was based on Lupe Velez, the “Mexican Spitfire who lived in a Mexican-style palazzo in Hollywood” and decided to commit “the most beautiful” suicide ever, “complete with an altar and burning candles. So she set it all up and then took poison and lay down to wait for this beautiful death to overtake her, but then at the last minute she started to vomit and died with her head wrapped around the toilet bowl.(POP127)

DEC. 6, 1965: MICKEY RUSKIN OPENS MAX'S KANSAS CITY.

Max's Kansas City opened at 213 Park Avenue South, between 17th and 18th Streets off Union Square. (HR/IAP32) The legendary bar/restaurant became a hangout for Andy Warhol and his entourage as well as many of Manhattan's other artists, musicians, actors, authors and drug addicts - finally closing fifteen years later in 1981.

DEC. 31, 1965: WALTER CRONKITE PRESENTS THE VELVETS.

The Making of an Underground Film was broadcast on the Walter Cronkite Show, CBS. Cronkite reported on the making of a Piero Heliczer film about The Velvet Underground named after their song, Venus in Furs. The Velvet Underground performed Heroin in the CBS report which was narrated by Walter Cronkite. Piero Heliczer joined the band on saxophone.

Andy Warhol, The Velvets, Edie Sedgwick (wearing her leopard skin fur coat), Donald Lyons and Gerard Malanga went to see James Brown at the Apollo Theater in Harlem on the same night as the broadcast and then took Edie's limo to Danny Field's apartment to watch it. (UT32)

JANUARY 17, 1964: WARHOL SHOOTS FOOTAGE FOR THE THIRTEEN MOST BEAUTIFUL BOYS

Winthrop Kellogg Edey (Kelly Edey) noted in his diary entry for January 17, 1964, that "This afternoon Andy Warhol made a movie here, a series of portraits of a number of beautiful boys, including Harold Talbot and Denis Deegan and also me." (AD13) Edey came from a wealthy New York family and was known for his collection of clocks which he willed to the Frick museum. Part of his collection is still on public display there. (GBA)

The "13" in the title of The Thirteen Most Beautiful Boys was most likely borrowed from a New York City Police brochure of "The Thirteen Most Wanted" which was also the inspiration for Warhol's mural Thirteen Most Wanted Men at the 1964 World's Fair in Queens. (AD13)

These film portraits were some of the earliest examples of Warhol's Screen Test series. It is interesting to note that they were filmed in Edey's apartment prior to Warhol's move to his silver Factory where most, but not all, of the other Screen Tests were made. Although Gerard Malanga has maintained that the Screen Test series started as a result of him asking Warhol to shoot a headshot of Gerard to use to publicize Malanga's poetry readings, a more likely inspiration for the Screen Tests was the photobooth photography that Warhol started doing in the late spring of 1963. (AD13)

Sometimes Warhol's photobooth photographs would be the basis of a silkscreened portrait. From approximately 1970, when Warhol bought a Polaroid Big Shot camera (AWP157), he would use Polaroid photographs to get an image for his commissioned portraits, but during the sixties he used a photobooth. When Holly Soloman posed for her photobooth pictures in 1966, which were used to create her silkscreen portrait, she recalled that the time spent in the booth was "pretty boring" so she "started to really act in them." (AWP94). The end result was that the photobooth pictures, taken with a still camera, were often more animated than the Screen Tests, taken with a movie camera, where subjects were told to remain as still as possible. In both instances, Warhol removed himself from the process - a type of "automatic" photography/filmmaking reminiscent of the Dada concept of "automatic" writing or painting.

JANUARY 28, 1964: ANDY WARHOL STARTS THE FACTORY. (GMW127)

The first Factory was located on the fifth floor of 231 East 47th Street - across the street from the YMCA and below an antiques place called Connoisseur’s Corner. According to one account given by Gerard Malanga, the first works of art created at the Factory were "a series of food boxes." (POP61/LD188/GMW34)

Gerard Malanga:

"Andy would arrive at the Factory, as it was now called, noon or thereabouts. We would work on and off until about 5:00 or 6:00 pm and then go out to party... The first works created at the Factory were a series of food boxes. Andy was fascinated by the shelves of foodstuffs in supermarkets and the repetitive, machine-like effect they created... He wanted to duplicate the effect but soon discovered that the cardboard surface was not feasible. I located a carpenter in the East Sixties, and Andy hired him out to build plywood boxes that we would then paint and screen, to create the illusion of the real thing... The brand names chosen consisted of two versions of Brillo, Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, and Mott's Apple Sauce. We obtained cardboard-box samples of each of these products wither from a grocery store or, in the case of the Brillo box, directly from the manufacturer. I'd deliver the cardboard box, at this point flattened out, to the silkscreen manufacurer Harry Golden, who made all of Andy's screens... We were able to get at least two sides done in a day. A hundred or more were produced in a period of a month. They were literally three-dimensional photographs of the actual products." (GMW34)

1964: ANDY WARHOL DESCRIBES HIS 1964 WORK SCHEDULE.

Andy Warhol on 1964: “We usually worked till around midnight, and then we’d go down to the Village, to places like the Cafe Figaro, the Hip Bagel, the Kettle of Fish, the Gaslight, the Cafe Bizarre, or the Cino. I’d get home around four in the morning, make a few phone calls, usually talk to HENRY GELDZAHLER for an hour or so, and then when it started to get light I’d take a Seconal, sleep for a couple of hours and be back at the Factory by early afternoon.” (POP73)

1964: BILLY NAME MOVES TO THE FACTORY.

Billy Name and Andy Warhol's relationship changed from "awkward attempts to be lovers to being conspirators in the fine arts" (B). Billy moved into the Factory and created the "silver look" as an "installation for Andy to have a fabulous place to work in." (B)

Billy was inspired to paint the Factory silver by the seven year repainting of the Mid-Hudson-Bridge which was near his family home in Poughkeepsie, New York. The paint used for the bridge was aluminum industrial paint - the same that Billy later used for the Factory. (BN28)

EARLY 1964: ANDY WARHOL FILMS BLOW JOB.

Warhol originally asked CHARLES RYDELL to star in BLOW JOB. In the account given in Popism Charles had been at Andy’s screening of TARZAN earlier in the year in a suite at the Algonquin Hotel. Andy had seen him in the play, Lady in the Dark, with KITTY CARLISLE at the Bucks County Playhouse, and had asked Charles if he would be in a movie. (POP46)

According to Gerard Malanga, the off-screen person giving the blow job was poet WILLARD MAAS who was married to MARIE MENKEN (The Chelsea Girls). (GML) Willard Maas was a professor of English at Wagner College in Staten Island and had secured a fellowship for Gerard Malanga so that he could attend the College beginning in October 1961. (GMW23)

Although some Warhol scholars have written that EDWARD ALBEE, who was a friend of Maas and Menken, based his play, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf on the alcoholic fueled relationship of Menken and Maas, Albee's biographer thought the play was based more on Albee's own alcoholic relationship with his boyfriend, Bill Flanagan.

Bill Flanagan [Edward Albee's lover]:

"With Virginia Woolf all hell broke loose, especially after people began to think that the two characters of Martha and George were really myself and Edward. There was a friend of mine - this boy in Detroit - who had never even met Edward. And he came to New York and he saw the play, and was absolutely horrified with disbelief at the character of Martha because it sounded to him like the way I taked and behaved... The whole question of the central characters really being two men is really not germane. Certainly, nobody has ever demonstrated it from the text. Unless you can demonstrate that indeed this is true, there is no proof... I honestly believe that if the rumor mills had not started churning, everybody would have gone to that play and taken it at face value. The homosexual interpretation only came along later." (PO115-6)

The first public screening of BLOW JOB took place at Ruth Kligman's Washington Square Gallery in March 1964.

APR. 21 - MAY 9, 1964: ANDY HAS HIS FIRST SCULPTURE SHOW.

The exhibition, at Eleanor Ward's Stable Gallery, was titled The Personality of The Artist (GMW148) and included the Brillo boxes, Heinz Tomato Ketchup cases, Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Mott's Apple Sauce. There was a long line of people waiting to get into the gallery which was his last show at the Stable. A few weeks later, Warhol left ELEANOR WARD for LEO CASTELLI. (BC28) The night after the opening, Robert and ETHEL SCULL hosted a part in Warhol's honor at the Factory. (GMW148)

Gerard Malanga:

"On a cold, blistery day in early December, 1963, I found my way to a stepdown storefront at 409 East 70th Street between First & York Avenues. The Havlicek Woodworking Company, Inc... Mr. Havlicek... a burley guy in his midforties... took my order and gave me a smile: 'Several hundred boxes please!' Boxes cut from pine and cut to size, fitted together with tiny wood nails. 17 x 17 x 14 inches, to be exact was one such size, I recall...

A few days after the move to our [Gerard Malanga and Andy Warhol] workspace, January 28th, a truckload of wood boxes arrive, individually wrapped and taped in clear plastic sheeting. And so would begin the arduous task of taping the floor with rolls of brown paper and setting out each box in a gridlike pattern of eight rows lengthwise... Billy Name and I would take turns painting with Liquitex all six sides of each box - which numbered nearly 80 - the Campbell's tomato juice for starters, by turning each box around on its side. We waited until the paint dried. Andy and I repeated this process silkscreening all five sides again down the line. The sixth side - the bottom side - remained blank... Completing the work took nearly six weeks, from early February well into mid-April." (GMW147-8)

SPRING 1964: MOST WANTED MEN AT THE WORLD'S FAIR.

Andy Warhol's Thirteen Most Wanted Men is displayed on the side of the New York State Pavilion at the 1964 Worlds Fair in Flushing Meadow.

The architect who designed the Pavilion was Philip Johnson. He invited various artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, John Chamberlain and Andy Warhol to create art for the exterior of the building. (DB181/4)

However, there were objections to Warhol's work from government officials. On April 16, Philip Johnson told Warhol that he had 24 hours to replace or remove the "most wanted men" mural as the governor thought it might be insulting to his Italian constituents because most of the "wanted men" were Italians. (LD198)

Warhol blamed Robert Moses, the city's planner and president of the 1964-65 World's Fair. Warhol proceeded to silkscreen twenty-five identical portraits "of a ferociously smiling Moses" to use as a substitute for the "most wanted men". Philip Johnson rejected the idea, not wishing to offend the festival's president.

Eventually, the "most wanted men" panels remained in place but were covered with a coat of silver paint. (DB181-4)

Although Warhol's mural is often referred to as the Thirteen Most Wanted Men, he referred to it as the Ten Most Wanted Men in his book, Popism.

Andy Warhol (via Pat Hackett in Popism):

"The World's Fair was out in Flushing Meadow that summer with my mural of the Ten Most Wanted Men on the outside of the building that Philip Johnson designed. Philip gave me the assignment, but because of some political thing I never understood, the officials had it whitewashed out. A bunch of us went out to Flushing Meadow to have a look at it, but by the time we got there you could only see the images faintly coming through the paint they'd just put over them.

In one way I was glad the mural was gone: now I wouldn't have to feel responsible if one of the criminals ever got turned in to t he FBI because someone had recognized him from my pictures... But since I had the Ten Most Wanted screens already made up, I decided to go ahead and do paintings of them anyway. (The ten certainly weren't going to get caught from the kind of exposure they'd get at the Factory)." (POP71-2)

JUNE 1964: LOU REED GRADUATES FROM COLLEGE.

Reed graduated from the Syracuse College of Arts and Sciences with a bachelor of arts degree and moved back to his parent's home in Freeport. From September 1964 - February 1965 he worked for a bargain basement recording company, Pickwick International, in Long Island City, writing "made-to-order pop songs" for $25.00 a week and no rights to any of the material. (LR73/77)

At Pickwick Lou Reed met John Cale. Terry Phillips, one of the owners of Pickwick met John at a party and asked him to the studios with the possibility of being in a band with Lou to perform what Pickwick hoped would be a hit dance craze single, The Ostrich, which Reed had written for Pickwick. The single bombed, but Lou Reed and John continued their friendship.

Lou Reed:

"There were four of us literally locked in a room writing songs. They would say, 'Write ten California songs, ten Detroit songs,' they we'd go down into the studio for an hour or two and cut three or four albums really quickly which came in handy later because I knew my way around a studio, not well enough but I could work really fast. One day I was stoned and (after reading in Eugia Sheppard's column that ostrich feathers were big that season) just for laughs - I decided to make up a dance. So I said, 'You put your head on the floor and have somebody step on it!' It was years ahead of its time. And another thing called Sneaky Pete. And when they heard it they thought it could be a single, so we needed people who could be a group to out and promote it."

Lou was still living with his parents in Freeport when he first started working at Pickwick - but would spend a lot of time at John Cale's apartment at 56 Ludlow Street in Manhattan. Their mutual interests were music and heroin. When John Cale's flatmate moved out, Lou moved in. (LR81-5) Their neighbor was Angus MacLise, a Scotsman who often played drums in La Monte Young's Theatre of Eternal Music - who Cale also worked with. It was Angus who introduced Lou to methamphetamine hydrochloride ("speed").

Lou Reed (from a tape made by Nat Finkelstein at the Factory in Autumn 1966):

"We were playing together a long time ago, in a $30-a-month apartment and we really didn't have any money, and we used to eat oatmeal all day and all night and give blood... or pose for these nickel or 15 cent tabloids they have every week. And when I posed for them, my picture came out and it said I was a sex maniac killer that had killed 14 children and tape recorded it and played it in a barn in Kansas at midnight. And when John's picture came out in the paper, it said he had killed his lover because his lover was going to marry his sister, and he didn't want his sister to marry a fag.

And then we decided that since we were playing all the time anyway, why not try to get paid for it, so we ended up at a terrible coffee house working six sets a night, seven nights a week, $5 a man a night, and that lasted a week-and-a-half and we were fired, because they hated our music so much. And then we met Andy. And we're now able to play the kind of stuff we really like to play...." (UT91-2)

SUMMER 1964: EDIE SEDGWICK MOVES TO NEW YORK.

Eddie arrived in New York in her gray Mercedes Benz in the company of GORDON BALDWIN and moved into her bedridden grandmother’s fourteen room apartment on Park Avenue and 71st Street. She modeled for a teen magazine and dined at L’Aventura, spending her nights partying at the “in spots - Harlow, Shepheard’s, Ondine, Arthur or Steve Paul’s The Scene.” (UV205)

1964: BABY JANE HOLZER APPEARS IN HER FIRST WARHOL MOVIE.

Baby Jane's first Warhol film was SOAP OPERA - filmed over P.J. Clarke’s, the Third Avenue pub. It was subtitled THE LESTER PERSKY STORY in tribute to Andy's friend who would eventually became a movie producer. Andy spliced parts of the commercials that Lester made into segments of SOAP OPERA. (POP60) Jane Holzer was “the beautiful young Park Avenue socialite wife of a wealthy businessman.” (L&D194)

JULY 1964: ANDY WARHOL FILMS BATMAN DRACULA.

Andy Warhol's film, Batman Dracula, was a collaboration with Jack Smith which was never finished. (CB) It featured GREGORY BATTCOCK, DAVID BOURDON, RUFUS COLLINS, BABY JANE HOLZER, MARK LANCASTER, GERARD MALANGA, IVY NICHOLSON, MARIO MONTEZ, ONDINE, JACK SMITH and NAOMI LEVINE who Andy called his "first female superstar." (POP32) Wynne Chamberlain and Gerard Malanga had introduced Naomi Levine to Andy Warhol at a performance at the Living Theater on Sixth Avenue and 14th Street, and they they all went to a black-tie opening at the Museum of Modern Art. Naomi was very “film studentish” - working at F.A.O. Schwarz, the toy store on Fifth Avenue, but also making films. One of her films was confiscated and destroyed by a New York lab because of the nudity in it. (POP43/44)

SUMMER 1964: MARK LANCASTER AND GERARD MALANGA STAR IN A KISS MOVIE. (POP71)

Although Stephen Koch's filmography which was based on Jonas Mekas' filmography dates the Kiss films Nov/Dec 1963, Warhol noted in Popism that they were still shooting KISS films in the summer of 1964.

JULY 1964: ANDY WARHOL FILMS COUCH.

JULY 25 - 26, 1964: ANDY WARHOL FILMS EMPIRE.

Warhol used an Auricon camera after seeing JONAS MEKAS’ The Brig which was filmed with an Auricon movie camera.

The Auricon was often used by journalists to shoot live events because the camera recorded sound directly on the film - a "single system" camera. The sound quality was primitive but it had sync sound.

Jonas Mekas: "He [Warhol] decided to shoot Empire, which was mostly John Palmer's idea. And since it needed long takes - it's a long film - he asked me what he should use, and I said, 'Why don't you use - you know - we can use Auricon. That's the cheapest. I already had rented [one]. We can, you know, just take it.' And he [Warhol] was interested because he wanted to get used to it because he wanted, he said, he wanted to go and shoot sound films with it. You know - in the way of The Brig. And since I knew how to operate it, I became the camera man for it." (PS416)

JOHN PALMER who Mekas credited with the idea for Empire would later co-direct/write the non-Warhol film Ciao Manhattan, starring Edie Sedgwick.

Warhol and entourage shot the Empire State building from an office in the Time-Life Building that belonged to HENRY ROMNEY who was also trying to buy the rights to the book A Clockwork Orange so that Andy could film it using NUREYEV, MICK JAGGER and BABY JANE HOLZER. (POP80) Warhol would later make his own version of A Clockwork Orange - VINYL starring Gerard Malanga and Edie Sedgwick.

1964: JOE DALLESANDRO IS ARRESTED.

At the age of sixteen, Joe Dallesandro, living with his father in Queens, stole a car (one of many) and crashed through the toll gate at Holland Tunnel, pursued by six squad cars. The cops stopped the speeding vehicle with a road block. The officers came out of their cars with their weapons drawn.

When Joe opened the door and started to step out of the stolen car, one of the officers opened fire, the others followed, and Joe retreated back into the car which he then proceeded to drive straight at them. One of their bullets wounded him above the kneecap in his right leg. He managed to escape the cops, sinking the car in the Hudson River, and stole another car which he drove back to his father’s house.

His father took him to the hospital and he was arrested and charged as a juvenile. He was sentenced to four months in the Camp Cass Rehabilitation Center for Boys in the Catskills, where (according to him) he tattooed himself with the Little Joe tattoo.

He escaped from the center, returned to his father and received a “dishonorable parole” from the authorities stating that if he commited another crime before turning 21, he would have to finish the time he still had to do at Camp Cass, plus time for the new crime.

1964: JOE DALLESANDRO GOES TO MEXICO.

Joe and a friend named Stanley ended up going to Mexico (Ciudad Juarez) with money Joe stole from the safe of an RKO theatre in Brooklyn managed by a gay friend. In Mexico, Joe Dallesandro worked as a busboy and dishwasher in exchange for breakfast, lunch and cigarettes. (JOE16-7)

FALL 1964: EDIE SEDGWICK MOVES TO HER OWN APARTMENT.

It was also JANE HOLZER’s 24th birthday and the event became a birthday party for her, with the Stones as the star guests. Jane had been modeling for Vogue magazine so TOM WOLF was sent to cover the event for the New York Herald Tribune Sunday magazine supplement. He wrote his Girl of the Year article about Jane which was included in his book Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. (POP80/81) The article was originally published in the December 1964 issue of New York magazine.

NOV. 21 - DEC. 17, 1964: ANDY WARHOL'S FIRST SHOW AT CASTELLI'S.

Warhol's first exhibition at the gallery of his new dealer, Leo Castelli, included his first series of flower paintings - ranging in size from 10 ft. by 10 ft. to 6 inch squares. (UW39)

LATE 1964: DOROTHY PODBER SHOOTS MARILYN(S).

Dorothy Podber, “a woman in her thirties” (POP75) and “a veteran of the avant-garde of the mid-1950s... dressed in leather” (UV185/6) arrived at the Factory, walked over to four Marilyn paintings that Andy had stacked against a wall, took out a gun and shot a hole through the stack. The bullet passed through four of the paintings. Dorothy smiled at Andy and left in the freight elevator. (POP75) One of the paintings, the Shot Red Marilyn set a record at Christie's when it was auctioned in 1989 for $ 4.1 million - the highest price ever paid for a Warhol at the time. (DD206)

According to Victor Bockris, Dorothy Podber was a witch that hung out with the mole people, also known as the "amphetamine rapture group." Its members included Ondine, Freddy Herko, Rotten Rita, the Mayor, the Duchess, Mr. Clean, the Sugar Plum Fairy and other friends of Billy Name. According to the Bockris account of the shot Marilyns, Dorothy had arrived at the Factory with her dog, Carmen Miranda, and asked Andy Warhol if she could shoot the paintings. When he said he didn't mind, she put on a pair of white gloves and took a small German pistol out of her pocket which she used to shoot the paintings. After she left, Andy said to Ondine who was there at the time, "Your friend just blew a hole through...," to which Ondine replied "But you just said she could." In the Bockris account, four Marilyns were shot and then renamed, Shot Red Marilyn, Shot Light Blue Marilyn, Shot Orange Marilyn, and Shot Sage Blue Marilyn. (L&D200/1)

1964: HOLLY WOODLAWN GETS A JOB.

Holly worked at JC Penney’s on Seventh Avenue and Sixty-first Street as a (female) file clerk to pay off debts from using her boyfriend's credit card, after quitting a school where she was training to become a key punch operator. (HW87) She later got a job as a salesgirl in the Seventh Heaven Boutique at Saks Fifth Avenue and eventually did floor modeling for Saks, participating in private fashion shows for the more exclusive clients. Fed up with the negative comments from the clientele at Saks, she found jobs modeling at different fashion houses, including Morris Metzger’s where she modeled sportswear for buyers. Eventually, she left modeling completely to become a file clerk in the Hounds Department at the American Kennel Club. (HW90-91)

1964: CANDY DARLING GETS A JOB.

Candy worked as a (female) file clerk at an investment firm on Wall Street. She did so well that she got an advancement to front-office receptionist. She went through an intellectual phase carrying a copy of Tolstoy’s War and Peace wherever she went. (HW88)

DEC. 7, 1964: ANDY WARHOL RECEIVES THE INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS' AWARD.

The award, from Film Culture magazine, was for SLEEP, HAIRCUT, EAT, KISS and EMPIRE. (PS419/DB193)

The event took place at the New Yorker Theater on 89th Street and Broadway. The original idea was to show some of Warhol's films, and then present him with the award onstage. However, Warhol did not want a public presentation so Jonas Mekas filmed him at the Factory and then showed the film at the New Yorker Theater ceremony.

Mekas' 12 minute film was appropriately called Award Presentation to Andy Warhol and featured Warhol handing out fruit to a group that included Baby Jane Holzer, Gerard Malanga, Ivy Nicholson (and her young son), Naomi Levine, Gregory Battcock, Gregory Markopoulos and Kenneth King. Holzer got a banana which she peeled and ate in the film. (VWB3/4)

The independent filmmaker, Stan Brakhage, resigned from the Film-Makers' Co-op when Warhol won the award. In a letter to Jonas Mekas, he wrote, "I cannot in good conscience continue to accept the help of institutions which have come to propagate advertisements for forces which I recognize as among the most destructive in the world today: "dope", self-centred Love, unqualified Hatred, Nihilism, violence to self and society." (LD212)

DECEMBER 1964: ANDY WARHOL SHOOTS HARLOT.

Using the Auricon, Andy Warhol made HARLOT, his “first sound movie with sound.” The world premiere of the film took place on January 10, 1965 at the Cafe au Go Go on Bleecker Street. (AF247)

Warhol realized that if they were going to have sync sound, they would need a lot of dialogue. When he saw RONNIE TAVEL at a Wednesday night poetry reading at the Cafe Le Metro, Warhol was impressed by the reams of paper that Ronnie was surrounded by and invited him to the Factory to sit in a lounge chair off-camera and talk while they shot MARIO MONTEZ in Harlot.

Mario was in a lot of off-off-Broadway plays and “doing a lot of underground acting for JACK SMITH and RON RICE and JOSE RODRIGUEZ-SOLTERO and BILL VEHR,” in addition to his regular job working for the post office. (POP90-91)

After Harlot, RONNIE TAVEL continued to write scenarios for Andy, including THE LIFE OF JUANITA CASTRO, HORSE, VINYL, HEDY, and KITCHEN. (POP91) He also wrote a musical for Warhol called Piano but the project failed to materialize. (AWM56).

For Christmas, Warhol refused to let Jed Johnson have a party at their house, but FRED HUGHES, BARBARA ALLEN and BOB COLACELLO met there before going to HALSTON's Christmas Eve dinner. Warhol had the flu and "drank the larger part of a bottle of cognac, claiming it would make him better." (BC346)

Still living in Europe and unable to cope with the deaths, Joe started drinking heavily and using drugs again. His girlfriend, Stefania left him after he attempted suicide by trying to hang himself while drunk. (JOE27-9)

I'd been signing America books for an hour or so when this girl in line handed me hers to sign and then she - did what she did... I don't know what held me back from pushing her over the balcony. She was so pretty and well-dressed. I guess I called her a bitch or something and asked how she could do it. But it's okay, I don't care - if a picture gets published, it does. There were so many people with cameras. Maybe it'll be on the cover of Details, I don't know... It was so shocking. It hurt. Physically... And I had just gotten another magic crystal which is supposed to protect me and keep things like this from happening..." (AWD689)

One day she was very down to earth, worrying about her toplesss dancing career, and then the next week she showed up barefoot at 860 [the Factory], saying that the Mafia gave her LSD because she knew too much!"

SAT. FEB. 14, 1987: ANDY WARHOL HAS A PAIN.

On February 14th, Andy Warhol rang his dermatologist, KAREN BURKE, about a pain in his right side that he had had for awhile. He had been in a lot of pain in Italy the previous month while there for a show of his Last Supper paintings.

Andy had been seeing Burke for collagen treatments to reduce his facial lines. He asked her for some Demerol, but she said she would only give him Tylenol with codeine provided that he went to see Dr. Clement Barone for a sonogram of his right side. Andy had the sonogram, but also took two Demerol that he happened to have with him. Dr. Barone told him his gallbladder was enlarged and he needed to see his doctor, Denton Cox. Andy, trying to avoid going to the hospital, did not call Dr. Cox. Even when the pain became so severe that he did finally see Dr. Cox, Andy refused to go into hospital when Cox told him he must have an operation. Eventually, Warhol had no choice - the pain was too great and he agreed to have the operation. (DD62-5)

SUNDAY FEB. 22, 1987 6:31 AM: ANDY WARHOL DIES.


One of the last photos taken of Andy Warhol. Five days
before his death he participated in a celebrity fashion
show at the Tunnel nightclub which also featured Miles
Davis. Warhol was in a considerable amount of pain
from his gallbladder during the show.

Warhol had checked in to room number 1204 of New York Hospital's Baker Pavillion under the name of Bob Roberts, listing his next of kin as FRED HUGHES. He kept his wig on throughout his hospital stay, including during the gallbladder operation. During the operation the surgeon also repaired a hernia which Andy had since his shooting in 1968. (DD5-10) Although the gallbladder operation went fine, Warhol died early in the morning - on Billy Name's birthday - from an unexpected heart attack. According to Vincent Fremont, Andy "was just getting back into filmmaking at the time of his death." (UW74)

The Washington Post's article on the death of Andy Warhol is at:
www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/review96/fishotandywarhol.htm

After Warhol died, the District Attorney investigated his death and concluded there was no evidence of criminal responsibility. However, the New York State Department of Health also investigated and concluded that "the active medical staff of the hospital did not assure the maintenance of the proper quality of all medication and treatment provided to patient." (DD96) Warhol's estate brought a wrongful-death lawsuit against the hospital which was settled out of court for $3 million. The money, less the legal fees, went to Warhol's two brothers as part of a deal to guarantee that they would not contest Andy's will in which he left them $250,000.00.

Warhol's estate was eventually decided by the courts to be worth, conservatively, over half a billion dollars: $509,979,278.00. (DD257) The Warhol Foundation contested this figure in court and it was eventually reduced to $228 million. (AWM13) It was to the Foundation's advantage to have a lower evaluation of Warhol's paintings because it meant they would have to pay less in legal fees to the attorney for the estate who was on a percentage of 2.5% of the value of the estate. (DD116) Also, The Foundation was legally obligated to award 5 percent of its assets for charitable grants and a lower valuation meant that they would have to pay out less money. (DD)

In order to back up their legal challenge for a lesser evaluation, the Foundation argued in court that Warhol was not as great an artist as some independent experts believed him to be. Art dealer Andre Emmerich testified for the Foundation that Warhol's work was likely to fade into obscurity because the subjects of his paintings (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis etc...) would eventually be forgotten. The Foundation paid Emmerich $4,000 a day to testify plus $3,500 for preparatory work. (DD251)

Warhol had stipulated in his will that the Foundation's directors should be Fred Hughes, Vincent Fremont and John Warhola. In 1988, Fred Hughes hired Arch Gilles as a consultant to the Foundation. Gilles, who was president of the World Policy Institute, took the job even though he admitted that he knew nothing about art. (DD138). He became president of the Foundation in March 1990. (DD154) Under Gilles, the daily running costs of the Foundation increased from $400,000 to $5 million a year. When Gilles first became president, the Foundation's bank balance was $25 million. After three years of his presidency, only $6 million remained. (DD259)

Fred Hughes resigned from the Foundation on February 11, 1992 after being told by the Board of Directors that if he didn't resign, he would be voted out. Hughes had been critical of the Foundation to the press and the Board wanted him out. (DD193)

FEBRUARY 26, 1987: ANDY WARHOL IS BURIED.

Andy Warhol was buried in St. John the Baptist Byzantine Cemetery, just outside of Pittsburgh.

A wake for Warhol was held the previous day, Wednesday, after preparation of the body by the Thomas P. Kunsak Funeral Home in Pittsburgh. Andy's corpse wore a "simple black cashmere suit, a paisley tie, one of his platinum wigs and sunglasses. He held in his hands, which lay clasped together on his chest, a black prayer book and a single red rose."

There were no celebrities or socialites at the funeral. Fred Hughes had told anyone who enquired about the funeral that the Warhola family only wanted family members to attend. However, the Warhola family had never made such a request. A small contingent of Factory employees were allowed to go and it included PAIGE POWELL, PAT HACKETT, SAM BOLTON, JAY SHRIVER, VINCENT FREMONT, SHELLY FREMONT and BRIGID BERLIN (who was in London at the time of Warhol's death, but flew back to the states as soon as she was notified). (DD117)

APRIL 1, 1987: ANDY WARHOL HAS A MASS ON APRIL FOOLS DAY.

Warhol's memorial mass was held at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

BILLY NAME attended the all-Catholic memorial service, "with all the associated hoi poloi, and magazine Vanity Fair covered the event. In their Warhol death article, they referred to Billy by writing and who should show up but Billy Name, the speed freak of the sixties. Billy was non plussed." (B)

HOLLY WOODLAWN attended the service but asked the cab to drop her off a few blocks away from the church to avoid the media. She was invited into the VIP section by FRED HUGHES but declined in order to avoid walking down the long aisle with people straining their necks to see who was coming in.

YOKO ONO read the eulogy even though, according to Holly, “Andy never liked her in the first place.” Holly skipped the luncheon afterwards preferring not to see the relics of her past, and instead escaped out of a side exit and went straight to Saks Fifth Avenue across the street where she bought “enough makeup to paint the Statue of Liberty.” (HW302)

At the postservice luncheon, with VELVET UNDERGROUND recordings playing in the background, BILLY NAME drew LOU REED and JOHN CALE into conversation with each other, easing the tension that existed between them since their musical break up. (LR365) They eventually collaborated on Songs for Drella, a tribute to Andy Warhol, which was released in April 1990 and eventually led to the Velvets getting back together. (LR370-1)

MAY 28, 1987: CHARLES LUDLAM DIES.

CHARLES LUDLAM, co-founder of the Ridiculous Theatrical Company, died of AIDs related pneumonia. (UV251)

JULY 23, 1987: STAR OF BLOW JOB DIES.

DeVerne Bookwalter (aka DeVeren Bookwalter) was the person who was being given the blow-job by Willard Maas (off-screen). (AD41) He died of stomach cancer at the age of 47 at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York. Surviving members of his family included his wife, acress Ruth Kidder, and a son in Manhattan, County Wilder Bookwalter. (NY Times obituary, July 31, 1987)

1987: MARY WORONOV VISITS ONDINE FOR THE LAST TIME.

Ondine was living with his mother in Queens, making money by showing Warhol films on the college circuit and talking about his Factory days. MARY WORONOV, who was living in Los Angeles pursuing her film/writing career, went to see him when he appeared at the Nuart cinema.

Mary thought that now that Ondine was "no longer surrounded by the fabulous chaotic speed freaks” he seemed “adrift on a desolate sea of uncomprehending faces.” Ondine was older now and appeared “very alone”. Mary thought the audience might just see him as “a ridiculous old fag.” (MW150-1)

Ondine and Mary spoke to each other for a few moments after the lecture, but Mary's boyfriend was desperate to leave and so Ondine and Mary's conversation was short. It would be the last time that Mary would see Ondine alive.

NOV. 1987: ULTRA VIOLET CALLS VALERIE SOLANAS.

Ultra got Valerie's phone number from the Social Security office by pretending to be her sister. Solanas was living in northern California at the time. Ultra did not tell Valerie who she is, but asked her if she had written anything else since the SCUM manifesto.

When Valerie said no, Ultra asked her what she was doing now, she responded “Nothing,” then added “I’m not in this place under that name.” Ultra asked what name she was using and Valerie told her "Onz Loh."

Valerie asked Ultra if she had a copy of the “newspaper edition” of the SCUM Manifesto, because she didn't have a copy anymore and the book edition was full of mistakes. (UV188/9) Ultra told her she didn't have a copy and then asked her:

“Do you know that Andy Warhol died?”
Valerie’s voice "perked up". “No, I don’t.”
“He died last February.”
“Oh, really.”
“He went to the hospital for an operation and died two days later.”
“Oh.”
“How do you feel about that that?”
“I don’t feel anything. Say, can you write to the copyright office for a copy of the manifesto?”
Ultra responded, “I’ll see," and then asked Valerie, "What happened to all the people in the sixties movement?”
“They died.”
“Do you remember Ultra Violet?”
“Yes.”
“What happened to her?”
“She died too.”

After a few songs from Drella, LOU REED surprised the invited audience journalists and arts people, by having STERLING MORRISON and MO TUCKER join them onstage for the first time since splitting up. They performed a seventeen minute version of Heroin. The band officially re-formed in February 1993 and agreed to do a short European tour. (LR396-98)

The Edie Sedgwick biopic, Factory Girl, opens for a limited one week run at the Westside Pavillion Cinema in Los Angeles to mostly negative reviews.

In his review for Variety, Robert Koehler notes that "Though Sedgwick embodied everything that glittered and grated about the era's counterculture, director George Hickenlooper evinces no deep interest in the time and place, resulting in a film that feels removed from its source. With last-minute reshoots and editing, the pic feels rushed, and it will have a hard time registering with target auds until impending vid release." (December 28, 2006)

1952 - 1987

Gerard Malanga: "Andy embraced his mistakes. We never rejected anything. In other words, if we were in the process of making a series of paintings and all of a sudden one painting went off a bit, or the image inadevertently overlapped the previous image, we kept right on moving along. We'd keep it, or, as Andy would say, 'It's part of the art'. (GMW37)

I am currently a cingular user, and I just want to use surf the web when I have wi-fi, since my school has wifi covered everywhere. I do not want to get a touch because I have enough things in my pocket already. Also, I am part of a family plan so I do not think I can be the added line and still have the data package. So does anyone know how to unlock the iphone so I can not use the data plan?

Industrial trademarks, Eddie, he answered. The man without a purpose. What were you talking about? Vails story in the newspapers. I cannot issue any public statements about it. I dont like it any better than you do! After a while, she said, AH right, Dr. It has ceased to disturb me, long ago.

His skin—and hers—had already sprouted beads of oily lubrication to ease the grinding of bodies. He looked so…vivid, almost more real than the other two men, or perhaps less real. His harsh words rode their storm, a garrote of meaning that made her gurgle. He raised one eyebrow. His control rushed up around hers, holding her in, holding her back. She took a deep breath, assessing. Are you sure you want to do this? Eyrhaen glanced over her shoulder to meet Radins triumphant smile. They had helped to raise her. What was that swelling feeling deep inside her chest? Through a veil of unwanted tears, she glared at the receding door. Radin dissolved the spell before it could take form. She glared up at Tykir when he laughed. Oh yes, this was right. She barely heard Lanthans cry, somewhat felt his thrusts. She certainly felt the wave of release that pulsed off him. Polite isnt a description Ive often heard for you. They shared a chuckle. She wanted to go to him. She freed her other hand so she could wrap both arms securely around his neck.

She sat up, unseeing and uncaring of the tatter of clothing hanging from her limbs. She found her arms and legs wrapped tightly around him, although she still couldnt see. Brevin gave thought to seeing his own mother but decided to visit his brother instead. She swallowed her protest. Little by little, she came back to herself.
