Blow off the digital dustpile ; Run the Amex

We've done some  20th century projects, only to forget to release them. Creating art, only to have
the business side shelve something is our style. our albums, ideas, videos, tours, cover art...
Fair enough.
But, this has Peter Eichenberger in the subplot of a David van Gieson video.
'Sigh' - by The Veldt. If you can make something to resemble a camera - your lead singer is there on his mark.
Danny Chavis is not pictured because, well he was in a period of inability to leave the east village.
The year was 1998 and Brokenland was not trending yet. BRKLYN.
Des White isn't in it because he was mixing the record. I wasn't 100% sure of the location or time or date- so  I was a no show.
Our last 3 months together,
things change.
if you remember this shoot.. Facebook Daniel Chavis

Kitchen Kitsch on the road

1996 Yesha records,  w Mike Beard, Bryon Settle

someone related to  B- 52's got their first instrument, and is warm and sleepy.
Some people are clearing out their common rooms,while other bring in everything.
Mike Ayers and Daniel Chavis must keep stuff. "wow, hey, that's kinda weird, man."
Going into vintage shops and antique stores near a club is not unusual.  Trading
your  daily food money for toys is...well,  your business. I moved over to the clothing section and pulled a Christian Dior red and black shirt. Norman, OK, wow- 1970's shirt. In 1994 !"I'm doing something over here", I mumbled,  looking across the chrome clothing racks -as they are doing nothing.
what- are you guys are squinting to read English? who's product would appreciate? As I begin to cypher the pros and cons to quickly quantify (who is a jackass based on purchases), Ayers walks his toy box to the register as if he were presenting the Queen's bejeweled royal remote control. please. stupid toy rocket. silly spaceship face- Thomas the train oughta drop an elbow on this toy in front of a judge and jury, obviously made up of real, credible, unbiased established toy peers. Radio Flyer,Leggo,Lincoln logs, GI Joe, Evil Kenevel, Barbie.
Babs will not be impressed by Low tech or misspellings.
Most of the people hired to write translations on unique asian toys are not using google translator.
The proofreaders, must be the same person, or a guy at the watercooler who knows how
serious the fine is for correcting someone in the workplace.
anyway galactic ships and rockets get packaged not as a spaceship, but a Universe Boat.
Danny looks at me, I look at Burris, Ayers goes... "What?" "Its a neat li'l guy"! "Y'all don't have a clue"
Daniel, " yeah - its cool Mike, later for those losers".
They have this problem in both of their residences.
Hey Ayers - A guy filming the new R. Deniro film in NOLA propped up my shirt as we walked by the set, being nosey. Des' in DC-  I get a mental dollar dropped in my Credit Union. Everytime. Put that rocket on ebay;I'll take it. pictured. 17 year old shirt, Lynn and Modigliani.
