Loser's Guide to Life
“I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of ‘work’, because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don't always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.”
— Andy Warhol.
I read that Warhol used to go around with a cassette recorder in a shopping bag all the time, recording everything, and that made me think of how cumbersome the action on those things was. Most of them had these big tongue-like buttons at the top and you had to push down on them really hard, so that it seemed as if you were going to break the thing. Everybody had them, but they weren't satisfactory to begin with. Sort of transitional technology.
