If you could time travel, where would you go?
Well, like most kids who grew up watching Quantum Leap
, I've given it a lot of thought. I'd want to hit the
hip and happening hotspots of the past 2,500 years or so. First, I'd cruise down to Athens circa fourth-century B.C.E. where I'd walk along the agora to hear some great oration and maybe catch an Aristophanes play or two. The next stop would definitely be the salons of Central Europe in the 19th century to watch Franz Liszt play his own compositions, and maybe swing by Gustav Klimt's studio just a few decades later. I'm sure I could get in a visit to Kafka's Prague and some early New York vaudeville shows before I had to get the time machine back to the shop for a tune-up. After that, I suppose I'd have the ol' time machine drop me by Andy Warhol's Factory
in early 60's New York and leave me there.
Sure, we can watch I Shot Andy Warhol
or Factory Girl
, but to actually be there at the cultural ground zero…to watch it all unfold around Andy, The Velvet Underground
, and Edie Sedgwick
! Now that would be something! Sound good to you too? Well look no further…
