DavidByrne.com - How Music Works

Thu, 06/26/2014 - 12:26 -- rprice

How Music Works is David Byrne's remarkable and buoyant celebration of a subject he's spent a lifetime thinking about. He explains how profoundly music is shaped by its time and place, and how the advent of recording technology forever changed our relationship to playing, performing, and listening to music. Acting as historian and anthropologist, raconteur and social scientist, he searches for patterns—and tells us how they have affected his own work over the years with Talking Heads and his many collaborators.

I Got Paid to Be an OKCupid Ghostwriter - The Bold Italic - San Francisco

Fri, 05/23/2014 - 13:52 -- rprice

So for a meager $55 a week, plus an invaluable party story and a $10 bonus for every woman I successfully got to agree to a date, I provided El_Zorro's wooing material. But, I was no Cyrano pouring my heart out into beautifully crafted missives – instead, I was an inbox-hack, strategically spamming a handful of Roxanes a minute. While a touch of style, good grammar, and humor are important in online dating, effective messages are more formula than art. As OkCupid's blog points out, there's data to dating.

This Is Story

Mon, 12/23/2013 - 11:12 -- rprice

Set in a 2000 square foot store located in Manhattan’s 10th Ave. retail corridor, STORY is a retail concept that takes the point of view of a magazine, changes like a gallery and sells things like a store. That means every four to eight weeks, STORY completely reinvents itself – from merchandise and store design to floor plan and fixtures – to bring to light a new theme, trend, or issue. So how did it all get started?
