Psychic TV, Act III

I’m going to my first rehearsal tomorrow as the keyboard player for a newly formed reincarnation of Psychic TV, with Genesis P-Orridge. It’s a humbling prospect. Although it won’t be my first time playing with a band, it will be my first time playing with a band in a couple of decades, and my first […]   read more »

We are Responsible for the Way Things Are

Sorry for the radio silence – I’m just back from the UK, where access was a problem. (Actually, we were being put up in such a swanky neighborhood that there were no Internet cafes. We did, eventually, find a phone booth with a public terminal for email.) I did five talks in three days, all […]   read more »

Do Not Call Lists – threat to democracy?

Fighting off a flu this week, fresh from Howard Bloom’s first public talk in a couple of decades, and pondering just how Bush and the energy industy managed to save Enron money by recalling an elected official, I’ve been prone to darker speculation. So what I’m wondering is how the expansion of do-not-call registries may […]   read more »

You can download the PDF version of the book, here. Please feel free to repost it anywhere you like, or to make an html version – […]   read more »

Fake Guerilla Ads

Guerilla-style Napster ads have begun appearing on flyposters around NYC. It’s the familiar old Napster-head logo, in a six or eight inch sticker version. The idea is to make it look like a guerilla campaign – you know, Napster is back, and our users are so cool and excited that everyone is slapping these little […]   read more »

Too many stakes spoils the broth

I just had another one of those awful experiences talking about Judaism with Jews, at an otherwise successful event called Lishmah – a day of learning and teaching Torah ‘for it’s own sake.’ Problem was, instead of letting me do some Torah exploration, they put me on a two-person panel with a guy who read […]   read more »

Sudden Impact

Got hit by a car, today. It kinda pissed me off. I was crossing the street at a green light, in the official pedestrian crosswalk, and a car making a left turn hit me in the hip. I managed to throw my legs up so I ended up on the hood of the car instead […]   read more »

Ecstasy Study Studied Something Other than Ecstasy

…not that I know exactly where I come down on the use of Ecstasy (I suppose I approve of it in controlled settings), I find this article fascinating, and post it as an apology to all those who came out to the ROAR rally yesterday. I just wasn’t able to make it down to DC […]   read more »

Club Zero-G

Disinfo is going to be publishing my graphic novel, Club Zero-G, next year. I’ll be creating some secret previews on this site. In meantime, you can find out about it here. It was quite a change of pace for me to work on a project like this. So few words available to say so much. […]   read more »
