This guy was a smart cookie—he had access to Andy Warhol in the '80s and made sure to get him to sign several Campbell's soup cans, a print and three Interview magazines. Watch his Antiques Roadshow auction-estimate reaction.

My pal Jenni Olson drew my attention to this interesting Kickstarter, for a “non-documentary” about '60s underground filmmaker and artist Jack Smith. Check it out—it looks fascinating and the rewards are pretty cool, too.

10286573_300x300Check out Blue Smoke: Intimate Disclosures in Poetry & Prose (Outskirts Press, $17.95), a book by Craig A. Combs, who was a close buddy of mine until I moved away after third grade. I went looking for him and we re-connected over mis-remembered memories and our divergent paths in life. Well, not so divergent after all: We both just put out memoirs!

In his book, he reproduces some of the letters he sent me as a kid, which I, of course, saved faithfully because I'm warped like that.

Let me know how you like his book: Get it here or here.

I recently came across the work of Spanish artist Salem Beiruti, beautiful illustrations that subtly capture the essence of his (male) subjects while exalting every hair on their bodies.
