Record Hunting in Brazil

While hob-nobbing with Katy Perry was fun, lets get down to the real nitty gritty of the ARC’s Brazilian trip; record hunting.  Our host was Allan Bastos, a collector and dealer from Rio+NYC.  Our point man was Beco Dranoff, a producer, DJ… read more >>

Me + Katy Perry

I lied yesterday in this blog; there were only 100,000 people at Rock In Rio yesterday.  That aside, the real mystery is how all of them, and nearly every one of them under 20, knew the words to Queen’s “Love of My… read more >>

Allo Allo Brasil…

B. George here in Rio, typing near-but-not-on a beach, in the peculiar upmarket suburb that everyone insists in IN the city, Barra.  Just a quick note  before a visit to MIS, Rio’s (there is also one in Sao Paulo) Museum of Image… read more >>

I started the car + the clock said 9;11…

Driving into the city on 9/11, I had to wait until after 8pm, when my street in ‘Ground Zero’ would reopen.  I started the car and the clock read 9:11.  Spooky?  Contrived?  Well, it was no surprise.  It matched the mood.  It… read more >>

windy + naked tape

Goodnight Irene…

Overwhelmed by the endlessly boring, redundant, over the top, never ending TV news coverage of the hurricane, here are the BAND NAMES gleaned from just ten minutes of coverage, channel 2 News, CBS, NYC, around 9pm, August 27, 2011: Stinging Pellets Fingers… read more >>

Two From Colombia: Satan’s Sandwich + the Great Joe Arroyo

In the latest Congressional budget mash up, I heard one faction describe the compromise as ‘a sugar coated Satan’s Sandwich’ (Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a Missouri Dem)!  Ah, such linguistic succulence.  Diabolical culinary rhetoric reminded me of my favorite hellish street food, Columbia’s… read more >>

Caramoor + Sardines

It’s amazing to me that more people in the city do not know about the great house, great gardens and great concerts at Caramoor   in upstate New York.  Caramoor has had a remarkable history of presenting the arts, the legacy of… read more >>

Candy kisses, raspberries, banana-nana-babouvism

Well, it’s a traditional view of pair bonding, but at least the title, Girl Meets Boy, gives the majority gender top billing.  Happy Valentines from your institutional love machine, ARC. No kisses for the latest show up at the Museum of the… read more >>

What is This?

I HATE it when people send me ‘cute’ videos.  But ARCpal Be Bop passed this along, and so now I must inflict you with it.  It’s like when an intern said, “Oh Prince, my grandfather likes him…” [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdSHeKfZG7c&feature=player_embedded] It’s not easy being… read more >>

This is NOT the original Soundtrack

In the early 80s I spent a lot of time in Jamaica, mostly in Kingston, twice on the north shore.  No matter where you were someone would point out that that villa over there was Goldeneye, home of Ian Fleming, author of… read more >>
