The troubling history of the crack epidemic in Lower Manhattan: A video

Posted on Jan 14, 2015 in Personal Reflections, Popular Culture | 0 comments

In digging through my storage unit over the holidays, I came across a VHS tape featuring a set of news stories from 1987 about a protest march in the NoHo area of NYC.

Residents were protesting the ‘invasion’ of crackheads and crack dealers into their once safe neighborhood. They ‘didnt feel safe’ and ‘these people should be locked up’ They demanded a larger police presence and the arrest of addicts and dealers alike.

Knowing what we know about the racial …

My top albums of 2014

OK so there are 26 albums on my top of the year playlist, but just for you guys, i will narrow it down.  Realizing a lot of my top music this year is sad white dudes. Guess that says nothing great about me (and also how behind i am on ‘albums to listen to 2014′ playlist)

As always, you can view/listen to/stalk my Top 10s from every year since 1999 right here on my blog.

Here’s my full spotify …

On paths

Posted on Mar 25, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

“Life is a garden, not a road. We enter and exit through the same gate. Wandering, where we go matters less than what we notice.” -Kurt Vonnegut

The trick with paths is not to think of them as places that you aren’t on.  Or at least, not to think of yourself as ‘not on any path’, and have that be a ‘bad thing’.

No matter what, you are on a path.

Remember, you give yourself more freedom when you are …

What I Should Have Said At My Father’s Memorial Service

Posted on Nov 4, 2013 in Personal Reflections | 0 comments

My dad’s memorial service was this weekend.

There were a lot of old Artists there.

They come from an insular world in which Art is the only worthwhile endeavor, where “selling out” is the worst imaginable sin.

More than a few people got up to extoll his virtue as an Artist, his lifelong commitment to Art and being an Artist, and his keeping his promise to himself to always make Art.

They spoke of his legacy: His art.

(I guess …

On fucking normal and fucking expectations.

Posted on Oct 18, 2013 in Personal Reflections | 2 comments

Lately I’ve been spending some time thinking about all the ways in which I am not what society expects me to be.

I am smart, wise and curious, but I do not have a college education.

I am industrious and skilled in many areas, but I have not had a full-time job since 2011, and I am not interested in finding one.

I am male, straight and a feminist in a committed long-term relationship, but some of my views and …

Presenting “Conversations for Deeper Context”

Posted on Sep 4, 2013 in My Projects | 1 comment

So, as most of you probably know, one of the ways that I’ve been spending my time the last few years is through Deeper Context, a freelance thing I started back in 2011. The tagline for DC is “Let’s get together and talk about what drives you. For you, for the web and for your people.”, which I think describes what I’m trying to accomplish.

I’m very much avoiding as much of the Marketing and Social Media aspects of …

RIP Charles Meyers 1934-2013

Posted on Aug 8, 2013 in Personal Reflections | 3 comments

My dad Charles Meyers passed away this past Sunday, August 4th at around 8 in the morning.

Those of you who knew him knew that he was quite a character, with a dark-as-night sense of humor and a predilection for awful puns and flirting with service industry folk (in case anyone was wondering where that came from).

For those that didn’t know him, he was an amazing artist, and you can see some of his work at http://www.charlesmeyers.com/
