WELCOME

This will be about my views on what it takes to put a three dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. With a lot of digressing.

THE STONES & WARHOL- PART 1

In the 70's, Andy Warhol and his friend, filmmaker Paul Morrissey bought a 20 acre, 5 house property on the ocean bluffs in Montauk, Long Island. Together they paid $220,000. It included 600 feet of oceanfront.






Warhol had designed many album covers for musicians, the most notorious
being the Rolling Stones "Sticky Fingers"album.
In 1975, to rehearse for a US tour, the Stones rented the compound from Warhol for $5000 a month.



They hung out at the Shagwong
(they must have liked the name, being British),
because it had a pool, jukebox, and bar, but they wrote a song
about the nearby Memory Motel.
All hell broke loose in what had been up to then,
a relatively quiet fishing village with a drinking problem.
Later referred to as a drinking village with
a fishing problem.
