swollen appendix

i am currently reading several books at the same time (like my design projects, i tend to do lots at the same time, all in different stages and varying kinds) these two books are entertaining me right now: ‘the philosophy of andy warhol’ which is full of incoherent ramblings and sometimes fascinating observations:

"Before i was shot, I always thought that i was more half-there than all-there, I always suspected that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually it’s the way things happen to you in real life that’s unreal. The movies make emotions look so so strong and real, whereas when things really happen to you, it’s like watching television-you don’t feel eanything"

the second one is brian eno’s personal diary from 1995 called ‘a year with swollen appendices’ which i’ve actually read several times, very inspiring (although this quote maybe isn’t really):

"Going home i saw a newly married couple being photographed leaving the Essex House (at 11.15). I managed to get in the picture"
