    I recently saw the '96 biopic piece, I loved David Bowie's performance. He was hilarious.

    Yeah, I caught that too Vee on Encore last week. I'm conflicted by this guy. I'm not a believer in graffiti art, but I feel empathy towards Basquiat. He was a pawn in a high stakes game that he was ill prepared for.
