Warhol: Someone said that Brecht wanted everybody to think alike. I want everybody to think alike. But Brecht wanted to do it through Communism, in a way. Russia is doing it under government. It’s happening here all by itself without being under a strict government; so if it’s working without trying, why can’t it work without being Communist? Everybody looks alike and acts alike, and we’re getting more and more that way.
I think everybody should be a machine. I think everybody should like everybody.
Art News: Is that what Pop Art is all about?
Warhol: Yes. It’s liking things.
Art News: And liking things is like being a machine?
Warhol: Yes, because you do the same thing every time. You do it over and over again.
This weekend I’m preparing for Defcon by (1) reviewing the talks and figuring out which ones I plan to attend; and, more importantly, (2) preparing an alcohol strategy.
I’m considering taking along a bottle of absinthe and a case or two of beer, then mixing absinthe with water in a water bottle and relying on that for the first part of the evening, switching to beer once that runs out. This is either the best or the worst idea I’ve had in a while.
