Schnabel’s Schleepypants for Schale!


Smoky burning wood. Turpentine. Tacos. These are just a few of the things we have long imagined Julian Schnabel’s soft, well-worn pajamas would schmell like. Now, some lucky person will get the chance to find out, since they’re being auctioned off on ebay, along with, heaven help us, a portrait Annie Leibovitz took of the Schnabulous one luxuriating in said pajamas, to benefit the Dumbo Arts Center. The auction runs February 11 to 21. Our only question is: Other than us, who in the world would pay big money for this curmudgeonly old dude’s farted-in pajamas? [Dumbo Arts Center, NY Press]
