Check out this post from www.edienation.com. I found it really refreshing. Edie was an incredible artists, and should be recognized as such- thats what I think is really great about Melissa Painter and David Weissman's Girl on Fire book. Plus, the screen tests look great! Very factory!


“It must be real”
Posted on Wednesday 29 November 2006

Edie was a filmmaker, a collaborator and artist with other underground and experimental filmmakers at a time when making a non-Hollywood film was almost a revolutionary act. Like you she was young at a time when a wave of technological advancements– new video camera, audio recorders and film cameras– were putting power in the hands of the people to tell their own stories. This is a pursuit she believed in fiercely. She said often to fellow adventurers in her filmmaking pursuits, “It must be real, if it isn’t real, there is no movie.” On the eve of the release of a HIGHLY fictionalized Hollywood account of Edie’s life, we hope you will join us in our Internet and video experiment of making real screen tests of real people. WE know you can tell the difference, as she would have wanted, between what is real and what is not.

-Melissa Painter

“I do love Alice in Wonderland though. That’s something I think I could do very well. Don’t you think we ought to do an A.W.? A.W.’s Alice in Wonderland? Andy Warhol’s Alice in Wonderland? A.W. stands for a lot of things, I understand. It, uh, it would make a fantastic film. So I wanted somebody to write the script for it, in a modern sense. Think it would be the most marvelous movie in the world. If it could be done. Don’t you think? Really I don’t think they’ve done one since they did a Walt Disney one- which isn’t really doing it. In a sense it is, but not in the way it really should be done. What’s needed right now is a real scene. I mean not just cartoon characters but the actual character of people because there’s so many fantastic people that you might as well use the people.”

– EDIE 1965

“To be an underground filmmaker… one felt that you were engaged in forbidden activity, which of course lead us to Andy and 47th St and the factory because Andy was hosting this whole feeling of rebellion in image where we could all participate in doing things that were ridiculous and absurd…and so to get a bunch of people who all feel that the sky’s the limit to start being able to do crazy ridiculous image with Andy…

[John, what did it feel like to be in a movie that Warhol directed?] Well, it felt like you were talking your pants off. It was embarrassing. You wondered what were you doing? Why are you doing this? And yet at the same time you knew… You didn’t know then, but to think about it now, I mean imagine you are there and there’s a hundred million dollars worth of art lying around on the floor, and these people fooling around with cameras. Andy, and I’m there with him doing the same thing, and there’s Edie, and we’re all there doing this. And so on the one hand there’s the rebellion, because you know you’re not supposed to, and on the other hand you know that its really really important, and yet its just going to disapear. So that was a peculiar feeling. ”

Some lovely Nico footage I found on You Tube (not sure if it has been posted here or not). The first one was a song she sung in 1965 before joining the Velvet Underground - "I'm Not Sayin'"

Hey there, I'm new. I just thought I'd say hello. I'm Hannah, btw. If there's anything you want to know about me, you can just ask, since I'm obviously not very good at these sorts of things.
I hope you're doing well.

I want to know do I stay or do I go

translation of "Das Lied vom einsamen Mädchen" [25 Sep 2005|03:04am]

kiss_and_stuff
She gently embraced her toy
Before she broke it
And was longing
And didn´t know for what

Because she was lonely
And so blonde her hair
And her mouth as red as vine
And who drank from it
Could never be happy again

But someone said in spring:
“You, too, are feeling joy and pain”
And picked her a thousand roses
But she only broke his heart

Because she was lonely
And so blonde her hair
And her mouth as red as vine
Yes, no one could kiss like that
And yet be so lonely

What´s left of her life
A song nobody sang
Sanct Peter let her wait
For two eternities

Because she was lonely
And so blonde her hair
And her heart as dead as stone
Then he called: “Poor child, come,
You shall never be lonely again”

(i tried my best)

hello
i just purchased Nico, do or die: live in europe~
the tracks are not as listed.
Just the same as Nico Icon. Has anyone else noticed such?

also: i just purchased Velvet Underground rare trax vol.4
which includes Nico practicing
. . .
all tommorow's parties(twice),
these days,
i'll keep it with mine(twice),
little sister,(twice)
i'll be your mirror,
Femme Fatale,
'Little Queenie'
'Somebody'
'Child's christmas in wales'
and a recording of Chelsea Girls with Lou on guitar.

my question is: on little Queenie . . . it's really not a track it's a few seconds of distortion and the rest is blank. I am wondering if this is just a bad copy i have since i bought it used or if anyone else has this track and it's just not really a track.
