Fans of dancey, electro pop will definitely find Pegase a must add to their collection.. considering it’s Thanksgiving here in the states, and I’m feeling a bit droll, I’m gonna skip a heavy intro and just jump ya’ll into the interview… Oh, and as an aside… those who don’t know what “pegase” means, here you go, “PÉGASE is a code to compute the spectral evolution of galaxies. The evolution of the stars, gas and metals is followed for a law of star formation and a stellar initial mass function. The stellar evolutionary tracks extend from the main sequence to the white dwarf stage. The emission of the gas in HII regions is also taken into account. The main improvement in version 2 is the use of evolutionary tracks of different metallicities (from 10-4 to 5×solar). The effect of extinction by dust is also modeled using a radiative transfer code.”
As a Francophile I must first and foremost ask you who your favorite authors are?
I read a lot when I was a teenager but one day I stopped reading. I don’t really know why. I like a lot of books, it’s the same with music; I like many songs, but few albums, and there are fewer and fewer artists that I like each time, for each song, each melody.
There’s an author that I’ve read continually throughout my life; it’s a pleasure to read each sentence, to feel each adventure every time. It’s probably because I live in the same french city as him, maybe I have the same inspiration. When I was kid I lived one year in front of a beautiful house where he lived. At this time it was an important moment in my life, so I think that’s why I’m attached to Jules Verne. Continue reading
So this Wednesday, 11/17/09 I’ll be helping Mark Arthur restage the show we put on over the course of a month last spring entitled “The Key” at the Mix Performance Festival.
I’ve never done any sort of performance in NYC so I’m excited to debut. Come out come out.. if you are unfamiliar with The Key, here is a video to wet your appetite:
I’ve been in Brooklyn hanging out with JT Ros and we’ve been ODing on performance art, theater, bands, and everything cool. It’s like I went to a hipster travel agency or something. Anyway, the other night on the helL train I read Adam Feldman’s review in Time Out New York on the play Quartett and I barfed. Adam Feldman has inspired a new paranoia that will haunt me for the rest of my life – always be superficial and take a quick peep at a who you are getting information from because I do judge people based on appearances. Thanks Adam, your old money connections and conservative leftist attitude may have gotten you your dream job and I’m sure an attractive someone somewhere is sucking your cock for all the free tickets thrown your way but those pursed lips and beady can’t fool me… gurl, you need to take your ass back to a gender studies class cause you obviously do not understand the brilliance behind the play Quartett. You are obviously jaded to true contemporary vision, and oblivious to the importance of queer heterosexuality in politics, life and storytelling. Ok. Isabelle Huppert and Robert Wilson I love you and for you I’m going to deconstruct Adam Feldman’s review. Everything in italics is my response to Adam Feldman’s review in Time Out New York.

IT’S A GIRL!!!! So today I went into labor and birthed another website Bourgeois Problems. Now Minor Progression has a bitchy little sister!! It’s a little underdeveloped now but will age like a fine wine.
Lindsay Lohan has collapsed!
I was trotting along and suddenly
it started raining and snowing
and you said it was hailing
but hailing hits you on the head
hard so it was really snowing and
raining and I was in such a hurry
to meet you but the traffic
was acting exactly like the sky
and suddenly I get a text
LINDSAY LOHAN HAS COLLAPSED!
there is no snow in Hollywood
there is no rain in California
I have been to lots of parties
and acted perfectly disgraceful
but I never actually collapsed
oh Lindsay Lohan we love you get up!
I couldn’t watch the disgusting video/tape Lindsay Lohan’s father released. But if you are a true sadist you may enjoy it/ this is what I am referring too.
There were other cool “non official” CMJ happenings that took place over the past week (this not being one of them) or so that didn’t involve Pitchfork Media or Todd P., although all bands involved in the shows that I caught have gotten shout outs from one or the other at some point in time. Myopenbar.com, one of my favorite resources for free booze and interesting times in this and a few other cities, also happens to throw great parties and shows from time to time, one of which went down just as CMJ was kicking off at Manhattan’s sprawling but sometimes not awful Webster Hall. The show line up included Beach Fossils, Woods, Titus Andronicus and Here We Go Magic. The event was free to those who R.S.V.Peed and although there was no free (or even discounted!) booze at the event, the line up was good enough not to scoff. Strangely, Here We Go Magic was headlining the night, even though they were the least exciting name on the bill. My friends have all assured me that so far Here We Go Magic’s music hasn’t been used on a popular teen TV show or film so I can’t really understand what’s going on here, but I guess they have a lot of New Yorkers who are really into them since the show continued to get more and more crowded as the evening moved on towards their performance. Needless to say I didn’t stick around for them to play. I also left before Titus Andronicus did their thing, since I’m trying not to kill my interest in them while I still like what they’re doing and I’ve seen them play an embarrassing amount of times since moving to New York two years ago. I focused my evening instead on Woods who I hadn’t seen play in a good six or seven months and on Beach Fossils, a newer Woodsist/Captured Tracks band that I’ve been really into lately and one that I’ve been trying to catch live for a while.
