Andy Warhol x Dom Perignon

A little late on the uptake, but I saw this in the most recent Juxtapoz issue, love the packaging and bottle. Andy Warhol x Dom Perignon? I think yes.
"One of Warhol’s favorite stories about Dom Pérignon was when he and his friends founded the “2,000″ club– a group of 20 people coming together to purchase 2,000 bottles of Dom Pérignon and will be drinking them together to celebrate the millennium. For them, the running joke was who would be around to drink it, but sadly, Warhol wasn’t there to celebrate the millennium by popping a copious amount of champagne."  -Freshness Mag
On my mind:

You know what irritates me? When people try to put a front on like they all have it figured out. Especially at this age, in the 20s. I'm a mere 21, and I have only a portion of what the real deal is broken down. Grew up in a particular religion all my life, but I got questions and concerns. Figuring out how I view, love, and respect myself; or improve on these things. How to market and shape my craft. Figure out the bitches from the down broads. The guys that are quality from those that just aren't. Be a better, constantly evolving me. We should be figuring these things out, it's supposed to be that way.
     However, more power to you if you have things worked out, bulleted, and understood better than the rest of us. Really, I mean that honestly. But for you, I hope you still get shitted on, schooled, caught up because you know why? That's what will help you progress or just consolidate what you already know. Then that's, THAT is when you have truly earned your spot. People go through this all through their 20s, and they say in the 30s you're sittin better, but between you and me, I see it going on at all ages.
        I think its just about always taking what you learn and shaping the shit out of it as you walk along. I been between a rock and hard place more than a few times already this year, and I'm trying to be patient with myself to work it out. And there's no one harder on me than myself.

rant: You know what I'd like to know? What happened to sincerity. That shit is like the Lost Ark these days. A friend and I were discussing how you see many cases of what I like to call situational sincerity. An oppurtunity presents itself, set the scene yourself, we've all seen it, where the sincerity of the actions or words is but of temporary meaning. The heart in it just goes too quick. Mean what you say and do what you mean, or at least work a little harder at it.

In this house, the Krylon stays in the pantry right next to the Ramen. Only way to go, if you ask me.
                           Went here to
         interview the artist that does this.
Technique of a classical painter, applied to scenes of grafitti, say WHA?! 
Sometimes you see some shit that automatically commands your respect and this was one of those cases.
