E














Today I watched a video clip of Basquiat painting. He drew the letter E, very slowly, in white paint. And then he paused for a moment, and begin painting again. At first it looked like it would be an I, then it looked like it would be an L but finally it was obviously another E. At this point I thought that Basquiat had painted himself into a corner. What could you possibly do with two Es? Finally, Basquiat began painting again. At first it looked like an I and I thought Uh Oh, but then it became a P and I thought Bravo! Basquiat had survived another castastrophy. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day: EEP. and that was the end of the film and the end of the day.
