Let's Pretend This Coffee Is Champagne

Painting of Taylor Mead by 
Leon Nicholas Kalas

Taylor Mead, a poet, actor and exuberant bohemian who collaborated with Andy Warhol in many films in the 1960s.

William "Bill" Rice (1931, Vermont - 2006, New York City) was a prominent and regular fixture of the avant-garde art scene in the East Village in New York City for many years.
A painter, film actor, and an unaffiliated scholar, Bill Rice was one of the central figures in the various bohemian enclaves that gathered and overlapped in the Lower East Side of the 1960s. Among his diverse achievements, Rice worked with noted Gertrude Stein expert Ulla Dydo on Gertrude Stein: The Language That Rises: 1923–1934 (2003), an essential study of the author’s writing process, using her notebooks and manuscripts. -Wikipedia
