Time to revive this thread.

All Tomorrow's Parties - Velvet Underground with Nico

"And what costumes shall {Remainers, Brexiteers, Paul Wilmott...} wear
To all tomorrow's parties?

A Union Jack dress from who knows where
to all tomorrow's parties

And where will they go and what shall they do 
when midnight comes around.

They'll turn once more to England's crown
and cry behind the door..."

and if we are talking about a party that took place on Jan 31 (as advertised here), then this is also pertinent. :D

Venus in Furs - Velvet Underground

I wasn't exactly tempted myself, but you could keep your distance, I suppose.

As Andy Warhol once said, "Everybody must have a fantasy."

He also said, "I don't know where the artificial stops and the real starts."

That is certainly true around here and so the Forum is a work of art. : )

Hotel Chelsea/Chelsea Hotel is the greatest. Nico, Sid Vicious, Dylan Thomas, Madonna,...many famous artists and writers have stayed there. I wrote an exercise for a book there. Happy days.

Little known fact, Venus in Furs is Peter Jaeckel's theme song. It is always played when he arrives at a party.

Haha! Wonderful.

For me, this was true once upon a time.

Running with the Devil - Van Halen

In my black leather pants and all - happy times. : )

I googled Peter Jaeckel and I found a handsome guy and a bald guy. Which one are you talking about?

He is handsome, albeit with thinning hair now.

Not a big deal when you have that Germanic severity and sardonic humor that last forever.

He does not suffer fools gladly, so if you ever meet him, be sharp and alert yourself. :D

Hehe - well maybe not so much warned as advised.

I enjoy being Foolish (especially in the Shakespearean sense, or like a court jester) and look at all the evidence of that around here! : D

But I’m more reserved and focused at conferences and world trade summits, for example.

katastrofa is no fool. She takes no prisoners. I like that.Image

BTW I always say if you can remember the 60s you probably weren't there.

you can give someone a friendly "heads-up" and doesn't mean you are calling their general way of being into question.

for some people, a visit to Gollem will be de rigueur so you might as well get ready for it!

Many people have these facades. Takes too much time to cut through the undergrowth.
