The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

05 wrap-up and Happy Holidays from The Brilliance!

What a year. What. A. Year. For me personally, 2005 was the best year of my life. Work came in steadily, I made my first public speaking appearance in September at Semi-Permanent in NYC which went really well, I met a lot of the people I’ve worked with and previously only knew via phone and email, and of course, Ben and I started The Trill Brill. The Brilliance. It’s been about 8 or 9 months since The Brilliance started back in March and it’s been a hell of a lot of fun. Unfortuately, we have to say goodbye to The Brilliance now - me and Ben are just too busy to continue it. I’m just kidding of course. We got a lot of free stuff in the mail this past year, met a lot of great people as a result of this site, took an incredible trip to Seattle to meet Alex Calderwood from Neverstop, interviewed some of the most innovative and incredible people in fashion, art, and design…I don’t know what else to say - it’s been a great year and we hope 2006 will be even better. We’ll have more interviews, more posts, more talking about cell phones and white shoes and awesome bathroom fixtures and NYC real estate and money and hurricanes and maybe we’ll poke fun at Bape a little more. Anyways, this was just a random thoughts post from me because I’m too busy at the moment to look around for something more specific to post. So on behalf of both me and Benjamin, Merry Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, X-Mas, New Years, Sweetest Day, Haloween, my birthday, teacher appreciation day, MLK day, take your daughter to work day, and black history month. Yessur!!!
