Brion Gysin and his Dream Machine


Brion Gysin and William Burroughs


Brion Gysin, William Burroughs, and Jackie Curtis at Danceteria in NYC, 1984

Artist, inventor, poet, close friend of William Burroughs, and comrade of the beat movement, Brion Gyson invented a machine that induces dreams called The Dream Machine; described as the “the first art object to be seen with the eyes closed.” A mystical figure and cult hero, Gyson’s dream machine was known to cause explosive visions as its flicker uses alpha waves causing a change in consciousness. It was said that the idea came to him as he fell asleep in the back of a coach as it was racing down a street and the rays of rapidly changing sunlight caused Gysin to have visions.

Rock and Roll Circus Lincoln Center

Posted November 4th by in Photography

The Impossible Project, a new company responsible for the reincarnation of Polaroid film, has teamed up with photographer Adarsha Benjamin to document, with later plans to compile a book, a modern take on the Rolling Stones’ 1968 concert event “The Rock and Roll Circus,” taking place this January in NYC. The Impossible Project has given Adarsha Benjamin 300 packages of the last remaining original supply of a rare format of Polaroid film with a chocolate tint. The Impossible Project was started by 10 former employees of the Polaroid company after production of the Polaroid film came to a grinding halt.  Within a year they developed a new chemical process for instant photography. Whether its the greatest marketing campaign ever: to feign the demise of Polaroid’s namesake product, only to reinvent itself as a new company with a brand new image, is yet to be divulged, but The Impossible Project is no doubt feeding a large demand from analogue addicts all over the world. The Rock and Roll circus will be held in NYC on January 3th and 4th at the Lincoln Center.

UPDATE: Set list has been announced!  The first day is free and you can click here to buy tickets to the second day – don’t miss out on this because they are goin quick! Tickets…..

Legend: Kitty Wells

Posted November 3rd by in Music

Country music was never the same after Kitty Wells came along.  To this day Kitty Wells is the sixth most successful singer on the billboard country charts. Otherwise known as Ellen Muriel Deason, Kitty Wells was riding high on the rhinestone horse of country fame with a string of hits in the late fifties and sixties. Her popularity waned thereafter, but Kitty Wells will always be known as “the Queen of Country Music.” Kitty Wells is 91 and lives in Tennessee.
