Below is a blog of sorts documenting and sharing what PRISM index,
its artists, and inspirations are doing.

New York Release Party April 30 At Silent Barn

April 28th, 2010

The New York release party will be in the wonderful Silent Barn at 915 Wyckoff Ave.

The show starts at 8 and features music by Diane Cluck, Golden Ghost, and Prince & Pearl.

Gavin McInnes from Street Carnage will do some stand-up and yell-out. His partner in crime Derrick Beckles will ravage us with a set of TV Carnage.

PRISM index is moving along swiftly with new stores being added everyday and new fascinations with New York. Strolling through Buschwick late on a Tuesday night, my friend and I walked along a sidewalk past an SUV when it started screeching, honking, and blinking. Our heads shot over to see a couple really pounding sex into each other, thereby setting off the car alarm and for four long beeps and flashes this naked pair was burned into our retinas. To me, it felt like the quintessential Brooklyn experience.

New York in the spring

April 24th, 2010

PRISM index is riding high in New York. Cinders Gallery and the wonderful Bluestockings activist/vegan bookstore/coffee shop. More to come, you know the way. Lots of push and pull. Celebrity sightings of Christopher Walken and Don Cheadle.

Spring has sprung into beautiful people and pretty places. Been eating and sleeping on the cheap, shoveling my body off of couches and into dumplings (Vanessa’s and Prosperity on Elderidge). $2 Falafel wraps and art party wine mixers. Still looking for my defining creepy moment in New York, hopefully it will top this, but I doubt it.

On the road

April 15th, 2010

PRISM index is back on the road again. Heading out of Athens, OH on the way to the big tasty red apple. Big business is on the horizon and I’m chompin at the bit.

Going to be stopping by Tribecca Film Festival for PRISM index contributor Dustin Thompson’s premiere of the Travelogues, an extended version of the film that appears on PRISM index #1 DVD.

Also, I’ll be attending the new Jean-Pierre Jeunet film Micmacs. The film is being released by the always wonderful Sony Pictures Classics, saving beautiful films from oblivion.

Again, the big show in New York for PRISM index will be on April 30th at the Silent Barn. Acts include: Diane Cluck, Golden Ghost, Prince & Pearl, Gavin McInnes, and TV Carnage.

Michael Deforge

April 9th, 2010

Michael Deforge is a a drawaholic. His style and range is incredibly diverse and I just can’t pin his work down. All I know is that I’m in love. This is the first animation I’ve ever seen from him and I can’t wait for more.

Dave Van Ronk

April 8th, 2010

One of my favorite performances of all time. One of my favorite musicians of all time.
