A Blog from Amman, Jordan, Online Since 2004.

For the love of…

Warhol :)

Have I ever mentioned that I absolutely adore Andy Warhol? Like absolutely. To bits and little tiny pieces.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh 021

Anyway, I’ve been having this intense craving for mushroom soup every single day of the past week, and aside from lunch at a friends house today and breakfast at Wild Jordan yesterday, mushroom soup is pretty much the only thing I ate all week.

I love Campbell’s.

    Roba,
    I am visiting from Zeyad’s…I love your blog design and especially the tennis shoe graphic! The best banner I’ve seen. You will have a great career in the arts one day.

  5. Roba,

    I’m visiting you from the link provided by Zeyad and I’ve been reading your entries. At one point you mentioned that you would never meet 95% of your high-school classmates from Riyadh. Why? Could you explain that?

    If you have the time, check out the blog that a couple colleagues and I have been maintaining for over two years now:

    Iraqi Bloggers Central: An American Looks at Iraq and the Iraqi Bloggers.

    I really enjoyed your blog and I’ll get you up on my blogroll later tonight.

  7. Who is Andy Warhol?

  8. HERLOCK SHOLMES!!
    DO YOUR INVESTIGATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    YOU DON’T KNOW ANDY WARHOL???!?!??
    well,
    he’s the man who created Pop Art.
    Has many pieces which include multi colored portraits of celebrities.
    He got commissioned by Campbell’s company to design a can for their soups and designed ones which later on came pieces of art because they’re very original.
    I hope I said the right stuff! hehehe

    BAKKOUZ!
    I’LL GET YOU SOME! ;D

  9. Hi Jeffery,

    Riyadh is an expat city, and I, along with the rest of my classmates, were all expats from different countries as diverse as Pakistan, Nigeria, and Canada, thus making it hard to maintain contact.

  10. Roba,

    Got it. Thanks. I didn’t know that.

  11. I bought a cream of broccolli soup can the other day. It’s the same Campbells brand. I opened it and just smelled it. I still feel sick.

  12. Hey I just got to see that Campbell’s Soup Cans piece in the National Gallery of Art in DC last week!
