Utterly Pretentious Manure
2 November 2002 | by SaviorComplexSee all my reviews

This is why Andy Warhol is famous. Because he creates the most useless, vapid, meaningless pieces of "art" imaginable. But, people are so scared to admit that they don't like it or see what's so "powerful" about it. So, they rave about it so as not to seem unhip or unperceptive.

The Emperor has no clothes.

I feel sorry for the mindless fanboys that call this a work of art.
