Andy Warhol Coca Cola




3 Coke Bottles or 100 Coke bottles?
I was looking up some information on Andy Warhol, and it turns out that his '3 Coke Bottles' silk screen was rather popular back in the day. You can buy it here at Art.com

But Wikipedia's entry on Warhol talks about a project he did called "100 Coke Bottles." The quote is/was:
Andy Warhol's first New York solo Pop exhibit was hosted at Eleanor Ward's Stable Gallery November 6-24th, 1962. The exhibit included the works "Marilyn Diptych," "100 Soup Cans," "100 Coke Bottles" and "100 Dollar Bills." At the Stable Gallery exhibit the artist met for the first time John Giorno who would star in Warhol's first film, "Sleep," in 1963.

I've tried to dig around the web-o-sphere to find the image, but cannot.
Can YOU?
If you can, please comment the blog with a link to WHERE.

I DID find a quote credited to Warhol that says:
"What's great about this country is that 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 know that the President drinks Coca Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca Cola, 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. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it."

He makes a good point, even though I am not a fan of his art.

¿Qué "igualdad" existe aquí? Realmente es difícil entender como es elogiado un producto que ha costado tanto despojo de sabidurías y productos de la hoja de coca. Lástima que estos "artistas" sean ignorantes de la persecusión contra campesinos y campesinas que cultivan la hoja y a la vez son víctimas de persecusión. Eso lo sabe Liz Taylor?... jejeje... Sólo lo sabemos quienes hemos sido víctimas de la filosofía "carpe diem", tan eminentemente difundida por la coca cola.Bebe ignorancia,bebe historia acomodada: bebe coca-cola.

I leaned enough Spanish in high school to get the 'idea' of what musikanoba is saying...but I really wish he said it to I could read it 'verbatim'! LOL!

If anyone wants to post a translation here, I'd love it! In fact, if anyone posts a translation, I'll print Musikanoba's comment AND the translation in a post all to itself!

How's that for publicity?

I am new to this place. I found loads of useful information here. I would also like to contribute some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you want to know how to lose 10 lb in a calendar week, you are believably not looking for a standard diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and workout plan, Still this requires a lot of time doing intensive cardio workouts and following a strict diet. Here I will draft the right steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Stay away from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast every day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Eat Up average portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. Instead of eating 3 huge a meals a day, eat 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Have a proper sleep everyday. Not taking adequate rest causes been verified to be a major factor to the body storing excess fat.
7. Use a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of needless weight stored around the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those individuals who desire to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic beverage.

Its interesting that this specific blog post attracts more SPAM that any other in this blog. I publish some of them because they look harmless enough. I mean ... weight loss. Sure, it has little or nothing to do with Andy Warhol OR Coca Cola, but we ALL can stand to be more healthy, so what's the harm?

What equality exists here? It's really hard to understand how is praised a product that as costed so great a spoil of wisdom and products of the coke's leaf. Too bad that this "artists" are ignorant about the persecution against the peasants who grow the leaf and at the same time are the victims of the persecution. Do Liz Taylor knows that? … hehehe … We only know that we've been victims of the "carpe diem" philosophy, so eminently defended by coca cola. Drink ignorance, drink accommodated history: drink coca-cola.

Dental hygiene is vasty crucial to complete health. Most people today do not think of their oral hygiene as a portion of their wellbeing, but several wellness associated issues stem from infections in the mouth. See your dentist twice a year and avoid any unecessary health complications that could have been avoided if you did your 2 yearly check ups.

The above comment is CLEARLY spam...but since it has to do with 'dentists' I let it slide. I mean, there is an ENDLESS debate over soda vs. your teeth, right?

I wouldn't agree with it.

No idea what you 'not agreeing', with, bro...
