WILLY MAYS = SAMOŠ = BASQUIAT

"Willy Mays, Willy Mays..." http://youtu.be/kaJ-LBQtfjI?t=32s

quote:

"To friends his age he was Willie Mays. But he wasn’t a jock and would never be a Famous Negro Athlete, except in bed or on the dance floor. He was a great dancer and had many satisfied partners. But he wanted to do for art what Willy Mays did for baseball. Do it the way it had never been done before."

http://artsy.net/post/christies-the-handwriting-on-the-bedroom-wall#!

"When I visited her recently at the enormous townhouse she rents in Brooklyn Heights, Ms. Rosen informed me that my timing was good: She has just decided to talk again about her "dubious past."

In part, this is because her past is once again in public view. Ms. Rosen appears in episodes of Glen O'Brien's "TV Party" variety show on display at the "East Village, USA" exhibit now at the New Museum, and she is part of the ensemble cast of "Downtown 81," the long-delayed cult film starring Jean-Michel Basquiat that serves as a kind of video family tree of the bygone art scene.

In photos from that period, Ms. Rosen looks like a new-wave Liza Minelli: jagged hair, pale complexion, expressive mouth. She appears equally comfortable in couture and the grubby "Willy Mays" sweatshirt painted for her by Basquiat (which she keeps in a drawer)."

When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
Straight down the Mississippi river, to the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew...

Jean-Michel Basquiat is an American artist, who began his career as a graffiti artist in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City during the late 1970s. He was very close to artists like Andy Warhol. In his short career as an artist he became an icon. When Andy Warhol died from complications after routine gallbladder surgery, Jean-Michel died shortly thereafter of a drug at the age of 27. The tragic deaths of both Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat were a tremendous loss to the art world.

Basquiat became famous for signing his name "SAMOŠ". Appearing on walls all over the streets of Manhattan, people began to take notice of the strange poetic phrases:

SAMOŠ SAVES IDIOTS AND GONZOIDS…

SAMOŠ…4 MASS MEDIA MINDWASH



BULLS-I..!
SAMOŠ

Find???

It felt like re-membering.

Like trying to re-member something until your brain bleeds and blood leaks from your ears. But, to my defense--I'm not a huge sports buff.

Anyways, I am SO relieved you didn't notice the misspelling of "Willie Mays" in the List of Famous Taurus Sun Sign Personalities near the end of Linda Goodman's Love Signs...phew!

quote:

Mays was mentioned numerous times in Charles M. Schulz's comic strip Peanuts. One of the more famous of these strips was originally published on February 9, 1966. In it, Charlie Brown is competing in a class spelling bee and he is asked to spell the word, "Maze". He erroneously spells it, M-A-Y-S and screams out his dismay when he is eliminated. When Charlie Brown is later sent to the principal's office for raising his voice at the teacher regarding the incident, he wonders if one day he will meet Willie Mays and will have a good laugh together about the incident.

Basquiat misspelled "Willie" with a "y" too.

"HOLY COW!"

quote:

"Holy cow!" became associated with several baseball broadcasters. Harry Caray, who was the broadcaster for the St. Louis Cardinals (1945-1969), Oakland Athletics (1970), Chicago White Sox (1971-1981), and Chicago Cubs (1982-1997), began using it early in his career, in order to prevent himself from lapsing into vulgarity. He explained the details in his autobiography, which was co-written with Bob Verdi and titled Holy Cow! New York Yankees shortstop and announcer Phil Rizzuto was also well known for the phrase. When the Yankees honored "Scooter" Rizzuto decades after he retired, the ceremony included a real cow with a halo prop on its head. 1950s Milwaukee Braves broadcaster Earl Gillespie was also known for this expression.

The phrase may have originated with (and certainly was introduced to the baseball lexicon by) reporter and broadcaster Halsey Hall, who worked in Minneapolis from 1919 until his death in 1977. According to Paul Dickson, New Orleans radio announcer Jack Holiday also used the phrase on broadcasts of the minor-league New Orleans Pelicans in the 1930s.

So announcers say "Holy cow!" in order to avoid having to put a quarter in the swear cup...

Wikipedia again:

"Holy cow!" (and similar) is an exclamation of surprise used mostly in the United States, Canada, Australia and England. It is a minced oath or euphemism for "Holy Christ!"

Holy Cow! dates to at least 1905. The earliest known appearance of the phrase was in a tongue-in-cheek letter to the editor: "A lover of the cow writes to this column to protest against a certain variety of Hindoo oath having to do with the vain use of the name of the milk producer. These profane exclamations, "holy cow!" and, "By the stomach of the eternal cow!"" The phrase was used by baseball players at least as early as 1913 and probably much earlier. The phrase appears to have been adopted as a means to avoid penalties for using obscene or indecent language and may have been based on a general awareness of the holiness of cows in some religious traditions.

From the Dictionary of American Slang (1960):

“ "Holy Buckets!" Equiv. to "Holy cats!" or "Holy Mike!" both being euphemisms for "Holy Christ!". This term is considered to be very popular among teenagers, and most teens claim it is definitely a very popular phrase. It is also the common oath and popular exclamation put into the mouths of teenagers by many screenwriters, and, is universally heard on radio, television, and in the movies. It was first popularized by the "Corliss Archer" series of short stories, television programs, and movies, which attempted to show the humorous, homey side of teenage life. ”

Expressions such as "Holy buckets!", "Holy underwear!", etc. also employ a play-on-words, "holy" implying "riddled with holes".

Paul Beale (1985), however, in revising Eric Partridge's A Dictionary of Catch Phrases: British and American, from the Sixteenth Century to the Present Day cites a different origin:

“ The original 'Captain Marvel' and 'Batman' oaths, 'holy (something harmless),' were in turn spoofed in the later 20th century by whatever seemed relevant to the situation. Nigel Rees, in Very Interesting... But Stupid: Catchphrases from the World of Entertainment, 1980, instances "holy flypaper!", "holy cow!", "holy felony!", "holy geography!", "holy schizophrenia!", "holy haberdashery!", etc., and adds, "The prefix 'holy' to any exclamation was particularly the province of Batman and [his boy assistant] Robin, characters created by Bob Kane and featured in best-selling comic books for over thirty years before they were portrayed by Adam West and Burt Ward in the TV film series.
