          Produced with my colleague Claire Munday. We wanted to reflect the style of the film by paying homage to the notorious Grindhouse genre. George Hobbs, our designer, went to town on the graphics with split screens, film burns, 'damaged tv', film grain, noise, lens flare and retro typography. The end board flickers with the Grindhouse warning slates and 'prevues of coming attractions' graphic taken from the film. Track: Flower Child, Ru Pops, Justin Sandercoe, Reece Gilmore, SATV

          • Alejandro Almanza Pereda Escapes from New York | ART21 "New York Close Up"

            Why would an artist leave the greatest city in the world? Artist Alejandro Almanza Pereda lives out his own personal "Escape from New York" (1981)—the John Carpenter classic cult film—completing a big mission before time runs out. ​From his Hunter College MFA studio in Tribeca, Pereda recalls how the retro-future action film had a big impact on him as a kid growing up in Mexico. Set in a dystopian Manhattan that’s been turned into a prison, the film features anti-hero character Snake Plissken whose mission is to rescue the President before the time lapse bomb implanted in Plissken’s body explodes. Pereda sees today's New York City as an inaccessible prison of a different sort: “It's become a playground for really privileged people.” Pereda describes the disheartening, socially isolating environment that artists in New York now face. With exorbitant rents for barely adequate studio spaces, artists are forced to maximize their time by either making money or art, with little opportunity to partake in the larger creative community that attracted them to the city in the first place. But like any good New Yorker, Pereda optimizes his best remaining asset—the three weeks that remain in his Hunter studio—and embarks on an ambitious new project before moving to Mexico City. He creates a DIY plywood aquarium in which he photographs classic table-top still lives featuring his own treasured knickknacks and produce sourced from nearby Chinatown. Staging his arrangements upside down and underwater, Pereda is able to circumvent the rules of gravity in favor of a alternative world where objects counterintuitively float and sink. At times melancholy, sublime, and unpredictable, Pereda's still lives mirror his own bittersweet feelings about leaving New York: sadness over the loss of friends leavened with the promise of adventures in a new city. Featuring music by Pereda’s band La Rubia te Besa and the artist's video "Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" (2014). Alejandro Almanza Pereda (b. 1977, Mexico City, Mexico) lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico.

                      Disney's The Barefoot Executive is a decent movie that prods along with a few laughs sprinkled here and there. Then, an hour and 20 minutes into the film, a little miracle by the name of Iris Adrian pops in and steals the show. Adrian is on-screen for only 42 seconds, but her performance alone is well worth the DVD's full price and much, much more. "The last show I liked, they took it right off the air; the minute I got to like it... off the air!"
