How Buffalo Get a Warhol

I read How Buffalo Get a Warhol the other day. It was written by Craig Reynolds over at Soundlab and appeared in the first issue of Basta! (Spring 1997).

Buffalo Nickel
Unlike other cities, where it’s easy to sink into the flow of everything’s fine, in Buffalo, you must be a prophet or drown in utter mediocrity. Buffalo demands existential authenticity, and the rock we push up the hill (only to have it roll back down over us time and time again) is our only salvation. Like Rimbaud in the gutters and back–alleys of Paris, in Buffalo, you have no choice but to remake life; there’s no bullshit left to buy, no palace gates to hide behind...
If you're down on Buffalo read How Buffalo Get a Warhol.   __________________________________________________________________________________
