Edie Sedgwick / Factory Girl

We watched Factory Girl last night. I didn't think it was possible, but I like Andy Warhol even less than before.

Here are some clips and footage of the star, who died at 28


How beautiful! Thanks Beth for sending to me.

My good friend Claire pointed my nose in this direction
She did warn me that it's addictive
It is.

I love receiving post. The real kind. Letters in envelopes that a real
person had to lick shut.
My friend Annette bought me very special cupcake writing paper.
This weekend I will write letters & post them. At a real Postbox,
with stamps

Almost mine

Annette and I are going to Wolves next week
There I will beat her at scrabble and eat lots of cake
I will also buy more Hello Fox trinkets

Hello Fox

Look at this pretty thing that Graeme bought me
From Wolves, Hello Fox

Only this (and nothing more)

In my head all day

Cheshire Cat: If I were looking for a white rabbit, I'd ask the Mad Hatter.
Alice: The Mad Hatter? Oh, no no no...
Cheshire Cat: Or, you could ask the March Hare, in that direction.
Alice: Oh, thank you. I think I'll see him...
Cheshire Cat: Of course, he's mad, too.
Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.
Cheshire Cat: Oh, you can't help that. Most everyone's mad here.

"Freaks was a thing I photographed a lot. It was one of the first things I photographed and it had a terrific kind of excitement for me. I just used to adore them. I still do adore some of them. I don't quite mean they're my best friends but they made me feel a mixture of shame and awe."
-Diane Arbus

"Is there no way out of the mind?"

Edgar Allan Poe

"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'
Merely this and nothing more."

Diane Arbus

Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience.
Freaks were born with their trauma.
They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats.
Diane Arbus
