This #SockSunday is dedicated to one of the greatest, the godmother of punk, Patti Smith. There is no doubting that she is a talented poet but please do not underestimate her non-fiction writing. Just Kids and also M Train were so well written. I love that she is a huge advocate of reading and writing. She was quoted as saying, “sometimes I pretend I’m a prisoner and if I don’t write my one line I’ll be condemned to solitary confinement, discipline is a beautiful thing”. She is wise and oh so cool!

The Chelsea Hotel is under renovation today, but in its heyday in the 1960s it provided a sanctuary for artists and writers – including the poet, punk musician, and cultural icon #PattiSmith, who describes it at length in her novel “Just Kids.” Patti spent time working and living at the Chelsea, living with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.

Hay diez millones de nombres en este libro cuya existencia desconocía pero qué bien escriben estos rockeros.

"Hep bir kitap yazacağımı hayal etmişimdir; kısacık da olsa, insanı kendi dünyasından çekip alacak, ölçülüp biçilemeyen, hatta sonradan hatırlanamayan bir diyara taşıyacaktı." #bookogina #hayalperestler #pattismith

Mapplethorpe may be best remembered for the startlingly frank sadomasochistic images that catapulted him to the forefront of the "culture wars" of the 1980s and 1990s, but this photograph captures the compositional care and reflective mood that more aptly characterize his work as a whole. Friends for more than twenty years, Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith fueled each other’s creativity until his death. "Robert Mapplethorpe" an exhibition comprising some forty prints of the photographer will be on view at the gallery from June 2 until July 20, 2017 at the gallery. #RobertMapplethorpe #Photography #XavierHufkens #PattiSmith #blackandwhite #Art

Fascinating curio circa 1963, John Cale (later of Velvet Underground and producer for Patti Smith among many others) playing Eric Satie piece on TV show I'VE GOT A SECRET. He had played this piece in New York over and over for 18 hours straight, and one man was in the audience for entire performance #johncale#thevelvetunderground #ericsatie#tvshow#pianist #singersongwriter #producer #pattismith#thestooges#ivegotasecret #1960s #classical #french#wales#billcullen#betsypalmer #bessmyerson #henrymorgan #garymoore #glasses#artmusic #cult #curio#rareclip
