"<>" equals "and/also"

Here is an interview Pat did with his friend Steven this spring, when we stayed with him and his wife Suzy in San Francisco. They were very gracious hosts and super enthusiastic, dancing concert attenders.

This is in honor of them coming to visit NYC this weekend!

Steven's "proffy bio"--
Steven C. Aldridge has finished course requirements on a PhD in Visual Studies from UC-Irvine. He earned a Masters in Film & Media from the U of Amsterdam late, last millennium with a thesis on aural-art/cinema.

Pretty great late-night conversation about music, powers, the condition, and life.

The concept of "and/also" or "<>" gets mentioned.
<> being an alternative to "either/or".


  1. The Deal in Crown Heights
    B.E.T’s The Deal will be visiting Crown Heights gem About Time boutique Wednesday June 3rd.
    B.E.T & Celebrity guests will be in Crown Heights tomorrow as they feature the About Time Boutique in their show The Deal. Filming will take place on Wednesday, June 3rd 2009 between the hours of 12:30 PM and 6:00PM at 736A Franklin Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11238.
    About Time is a thriving boutique founded in 2008 by Kevin Phillip in hopes to shine a positive light on his neighborhood. In opening the boutique he has done just that. Not only does the boutique bring a plethora of freshness to the community including trendy limited edition t-shirts, jeans, sneakers, and accessories, it is also something of a safe haven for the children in the area. About Time has provided the kids with a positive place to go and learn the ins and outs of a business started by someone that grew up just like them. This fact alone makes it unparalleled to any other inspired boutique in the city.
    The Deal focuses on hip hop culture and everything surrounding it, they chose to shoot in About Time because it epitomizes everything that is the culture. The boutique has been featured in such publications as the Daily News, Time Out NY, AMNY, as well as being featured for a week on B.E.T’s Rap City in May 2008. About Time is rapidly gaining recognition not only in Brooklyn, but the entire city. This stellar opportunity to be featured on B.E.T yet again will hopefully bring increased accolades and awareness to this budding boutique. So please be sure to tune in, come by and visit, and most importantly SUPPORT!
