These two New Yorkers are my Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. After 13 years together, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson got hitched earlier this month in small ceremony in Colorado. Rock'n'roll's most original couple, don't ya think? Original in the way we used to know it, and you know what I mean.

Four years ago while completing my Master's degree, I took a class on women in literature with a focus on performance art. To make a long story short, I got an 4.0 for re-enacting a portion of Laurie Anderson's United States. It's so brilliant. I also had the pleasure of seeing Lou Reed perform a near three-hour show at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit in 2000. I will always be waiting for that man. White Light...........white heat.
