Andy Warhol’s birthday

Originally shared by Hek Waves

“Sometimes the little times you don’t think are anything while they’re happening turn out to be what marks a whole period of your life.”

— Andy Warhol, owner of one of the most famous quotes at all (“In the future, everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.”) and true inventor of the „Instagram Culture”, was born 135 years ago from today on August 6th, 1928. 

To remember this restless mind, I’ve selected a 3:40 clip describing him in a geniously compact way. The key message of Warhol is also a central part of the clip:

“What’s great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good.”

Open Culture has recently a comment on the clip here:
