Just Above Sunset
April 11, 2004 - The Andy Warhol Legacy
Yes, Glassport is a town
quite near Pittsburgh, where I was born and raised. The area seems to have become
quite surreal over the long years since I lived there. Or perhaps as a callow,
unaware young lad I just didn’t pay enough attention to the weird and wonderful locals.
- A church trying to teach about the crucifixion of Jesus performed an Easter show with actors whipping the Easter
bunny and breaking eggs, upsetting several parents and young children.
Perhaps it is time to return for a visit. It seems these folks have developed an entirely new genre of things – Surreal Fundamentalist Christian Performance Art.
Hey, Andy Warhol was born and raised in Pittsburgh. It’s still a happening place.
Rick in Atlanta adds –
Finally, a pageant that expresses "The True Meaning of Easter!" Yes, a little bit of Andy Warhol, but who can deny the additional influence of Mel Gibson?
What a world!
