The best part of a panel about "LOVE" sponsored by The Week magazine was when Harold Evans asked Bernardo Bertolucci, via a patchy connection from Rome, about love. Bertolucci said, "What love? Like I have passion for cinema!" and then he went into a story about how he loved Jean-Luc Godard and his work so much that the first time he met JLG, Bertolucci threw up on him - "That was the manifestation of my love for him." Cinephilia and gastrointestinal distress - that's Gothamist in a nutshell!
The second best part of the panel was when Farrah Fawcett didn't understand Erica Jong's famous "zipless fuck" phrase and Farrah called it a "senseless" fuck. Classic, although New Yorkish might think Jong's voice yelling "labia" which then echoed through Grand Central might be better. Edmund White sort of spooked people out when he discussed his 9 year relationship where both parties have other flings on the side, but, hey, whatever works.
