The Reason Keith Haring Chose a Baby Logo

“When I was 21 I spent a summer teaching ‘Art’ at a day-care center in Brooklyn. It was the most fulfilling summer of my life. There is nothing that makes me happier than making a child smile. The reason that the ‘baby’ has become my logo or signature is that it is the purest and most positive experience of human existence.

Children are the bearers of life in its simplest and most joyous form. Children are color-blind and still free of all the complications, greed, and hatred that will slowly be instilled in them through life.

I will never forget some of the adults who touched me through my childhood. Sometimes very brief encounters have made an impact that is very lasting and very real. If it is possible for me to have that kind of effect on any children, I think that would be the most important and useful thing I could do.

Touching people’s lives in a positive way is as close as I can get to an idea of religion…

…Children know something that most people have forgotten. Children possess a fascination with their everyday existence that is very special and would be very helpful to adults if they could learn to understand and respect it.

I am now 28 years old on the outside and nearly 12 years old on the inside. I always want to stay 12 years old on the inside.” Keith Haring, July 7, 1986, Montreux.

Vincent Gallo“VINCENT GALLO evenings, weekends escort.


Wish, dream or fantasy with VINCENT GALLO, ladies only

Have you ever watched a movie and fallen in love with one of the actors? The way they looked or a character they played? Afterwards you thought of them over and over. Daydreaming, imagining things, sexy things. When I was very young I was madly in love with Tuesday Weld and Charlotte Rampling. On my 14th birthday I went to see the film Rolling Thunder and had my biggest crush of all on the actress Linda Haynes. I wished and wished and wished everyday that I could meet all these girls. I thought of a lot of sexy things with Susan Blakely after seeing her in Lords of Flatbush. In my mind I could do with her anything I wanted to do. So believe me, I know and understand what it’s like to wish and dream about spending time with a movie star. Doing things that couples do. Couples in love. At least couples where the guy is hot and knows how to handle a chick.

I, Vincent Gallo, star of such classics as Buffalo 66 and The Brown Bunny have decided to make myself available to all women. All women who can afford me, that is. For the modest fee of $50,000 plus expenses, I can fulfill the wish, dream, or fantasy of any naturally born female. The fee covers one evening with Vincent Gallo…

This service is available, but is only payable by cash, checks, and/or bank wire.  No credit card payments accepted for this item.

George H. W. Bush Outlines Richards Nixon’s Hang-Ups about Ivy League Bastards

Yalie George H.W. Bush served as Chairman of the Republican National Committee under Richard Nixon. Despite this appointment, he felt he did not enjoy the President’s trust and he fretted that Nixon viewed him as a mere “Ivy League bastard.” Nixon’s conflicted feelings about an Ivy League education extended even to his consigliore, the Harvard-educated PhD and Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger. * Bush outlined his worries in a 1972 letter to his sons:

“The President’s hang-up on Ivy League is two-fold.** The first relates to issues. He sees the Ivy League type as the Kennedy liberal Kingman Brewster on the war–arrogant, self-assured, soft professors moving the country left. Soft on Communism in the past–soft on socialistic programs at home–fighting him at every turn– close to the editors that hate him. In this issue context he equates Ivy League with anti-conservatism and certainly anti-Nixon.

Secondly I believe there is rather insecure social kind of hang-up. Ivy League connotes privilege and softness in a tea sipping, martini drinking, tennis playing sense. There’s an enormous hang-up here that comes through an awful lot. I feel it personally. It stings but it doesn’t bleed.”

*“That fucker doesn’t perform surgery or make house calls does he?” Bush is reputed to have asked staffers when they referred to the Secretary of State as “Doctor” Kissinger.

**Bush was correct. “The Ivy League presidents?” Nixon told Kissinger after his meeting with Ivy League College Presidents about Vietnam, “Why I’ll never let those sons of bitches in the White House again. Never, never, never. They’re finished. The Ivy League schools are finished… Henry, I would never have had them in. Don’t do that again… They came out against us when it was tough… Don’t ever go to an Ivy League school again, ever. Never, never, never.”

The Soviet Ambassador Comments on Reagan’s Interview with ABC, 1985

reagan“25 September 1985

In his recent appearances, the head of the White House has frequently falsified quotes that he attributed to V.I. Lenin. For example, during Reagan’s interview with ABC on September 18, 1985 the president of the U.S.A. acknowledged that ‘he often quotes Lenin’s statements,’ which allegedly speak of seizing Eastern Europe, organizing East Asian hordes, taking over Latin America and the United States. Grossly distorting the history and politics of the Soviet State, the American president attempted and continues to cast a shadow on the external and internal politics of the Soviet state. As is known, there are no such statements by V.I. Lenin.

This is not the first time that such allegations have been made. Such a practice is unacceptable in relations between countries. It creates justifiable indignation in the Soviet Union, as an insult to the Soviet people, a premeditated distortion of the Soviet state.

The Soviet Union demands the American side end such practices which are incompatible with normal relations between countries.

A Letter to Abe Books

abe-books“Thank you for your response. I find that instructions to solve computer problems are only of use to people who don’t need instructions. Simple for me would be for YOU to cancel and erase my account and allow me to re-apply. You will no doubt advise that your ‘walls and encryptions’ make this impossible, yet all the security in the world did not prevent Putin breaking into Hillary’s email thus changing the direction of America. Good luck with that by the way.
I did find another source for the books I wanted and am expecting delivery within a few days.
I will miss Abe Books.
