I’m continuing my obtuse approach to the creation of blog titles with good reason this week. Park it for a moment and read about A Man called Brian, a true visionary who’s been brilliantly skewering pop culture for the past 20 years.

You’ve seen Brian’s work. He’s a founder member of seminal audio-visual band Emergency Broadcast Network (EBN), creators of the George Bush mashup that opened the epic early 90’s Zoo TV tour, by the Bono band. Although early EBN stuff is something I rarely play, his more recent solo work often features in my sets, such as this clever nailing of copyright and remix…

More recently still, Brian has been breaking the fifth wall and reintroducing everyday experiences of the digital age as wryly conceived items and installations. Check out his meditation on the spinning wheel of ‘wait’…

This massive favourite of mine, real speech bubbles…

And paranoia writ large with real life cloaking & camouflaging devices, which… um… bear a striking similarity to my current avatar

You should totally check his website out, particularly the art page. You can also find Brian on Facebook, where he’s pretty active, including playing a live video show recently at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. What wouldn’t I have given to see that!

Ok, back to the videos, lets close as the man himself would want. Thats all folks…
