Reading about Weimar Berlin and this woman appears. Known of course. Except I'm a bit slow in finding out. Makes Lou Reed look pretty pathetic,given the coke she consumed as well as the champagne the brandy the -johns- as well-- and Andy Warhol rather lame. I can't think of any who could come near her except Isadora perhaps and a few other friends of theirs. But the hedonism of that city and its politics showed how brilliant life can be when there is no war in the people under whatever guise or moralism. At a time when beer in Amerika was seen as anti-Amerikan. So hedonism is good for society good for culture and good for your soul. The Church was trying not to go stupid and didn't. Neither society per se. What a difference this was. Only the Nazis. Which is the lesson here. Life is better than all of that.
and for a look at the times themselves as well
