A couple CP things:
Joel Johnson - the man behind the controversial Wired article on the Elemenstor Saga - is hosting an event in Brooklyn called "FÜNDE RAZOR." After a few reveletory experiences with Guitar Hero by Red Octane/Harmonix, it ocurred to him that he could do an altogether unorthodox charity evening - the dark twin of our own swank affair. Taking place at Barcade, and without a cover charge, raffle tickets for a variety of quote fabulous prizes will be on offer, including a 360. I would imagine the core of the evening will revolve around Big Screen Guitar Hero, which is an experience that may well change your life.
