Red vs. Black & White
Huffington Post - about 1 month
The weather last weekend seemingly had a nervous breakdown, constantly flipping between stormy downpours and short bursts of sunshine. With huge waves pounding at the shore, driving along the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, to Pepperdine University, was quite an adventure. So, I was wondering how many people were going to show up for Sunday's opening of Larry Bell's exhibition at the Fredrick R. Weisman Museum of Art. Top: Installation View Larry Bell: Pacific Red at the Weisman Museum of Art: Malibu, CA Bottom: Larry Bell, Pacific Red II, 2017 Laminated Glass Courtesy of the Larry Bell Studio It turned out to be quite a large crowd, which shouldn't be a surprise, considering the international reputation of Larry Bell (b. 1939) -- a founder of the California Light and Space movement. Upon entering the exhibition --weather be damned-- everyone was greeted with a happy burst of the bright red color that dominates the whole exhibition, which is appropriately titled Pacif ...

What's It Like To Try And Be Normal After A Career As A Spy
Huffington Post - 5 months
I love this little story by David Foster Wallace because it so perfectly captures my feelings and experiences after being outed as a CIA covert operations officer by the Bush administration in 2003: There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, "Morning, boys. How's the water?" And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, "What the hell is water?” Exactly. When you’re in the middle of something, you don’t necessarily understand the context of it until you leave. Jump the fishbowl, as it were. I didn’t appreciate how special and sometimes strange my CIA world was, until it suddenly and spectacularly ended in a newspaper column. The most obvious example is that I no longer needed to prevaricate or misdirect anyone who asked me what I did for a living. I didn’t have to remember a cover story or a cover company that I ostensibly w ...

After Brexit, what? U.S. secessionists hankering for 'Texit'
Yahoo News - 8 months
Emboldened by Brexit, U.S. secessionists in Texas are keen to adopt the campaign tactics used to sway the British vote for leaving the European Union and are demanding “Texit” comes next. The citizen-driven vote in Britain can be a model for Texas, which was an independent country from 1836 to 1845, and its $1.6 trillion (£1.17 trillion) a year economy would be among the 10 largest in the world, said Daniel Miller, president of the Texas Nationalist Movement. “The Texas Nationalist Movement is formally calling on the Texas governor to support a similar vote for Texans,” the group said on Friday.

Journalism (Before the Huffington Post)
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
A few years ago a neighbor of mine presented me with an unusual gift-- the June 2, 1829 edition of The American Sentinel newspaper, published in Philadelphia by Jacob Frick and Company. The American Sentinel was a weekly newspaper and was only around for 20 years between 1820 and 1840. My neighbor Larry had the newspaper in a plastic container but it was in good condition. Newspapers have a poor shelf life-- there are newspapers from the 1960s, for instance, that seem to disintegrate the moment you touch them but The Sentinel was different. When I went home and took the newspaper out of its wrapping it did not crumble to pieces. The pages didn't even rip when I held the paper or turned it sideways. The quality of this paper seemed to be superior to others. Another thing about reading old newspapers is this: there is sometimes a pungent odor that seems to rise from the newsprint. The Sentinel has this in spades and for a moment or two I thought I might be breathing in a dusty, invi ...

Light On
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The Elmhurst Art Museum has hit its stride with Staci Boris guiding the curation and programing. The current exhibition, Spotlight, hosts a number of Chicago artists for whom light is the content and the medium of their art. I was particularly impressed with Monika Wulfers (above) and Jeroen Nelemans's elegant and humorous wall laserlight piece made from laser level elements. Paola Cabal, Dana Carter, Spencer Finch, Dana Major, Daniel Miller, Jason Peot, Morgan Sims and Jan Tichy also have strong contributions. Jeroen Nelemans Jan Tichy Dana Major Jason Peot Morgan Sims I enjoyed the exhibit, the installation, and the local focus. Solid and resourceful, it was well worth the short field trip.

Social networks: Unfriending mum and dad
The Economist - about 3 years
NOT long after being snapped up by News Corporation in 2005, MySpace became a much emptier space when many teenagers who had used the social network to share music and photos of themselves in various states of undress decided it was no longer the cool place to be online. A recent blog post has sparked a debate about whether Facebook, which has 1.2 billion users, is suffering a similar exodus.The fuss matters because investors have been very bullish about Facebook’s prospects. Its share price more than doubled in 2013, ending the year above $54. This partly reflects the market’s insatiable appetite for social-media stocks, but it is also a sign of investors’ conviction that Facebook’s users will not tire of it.Hence the interest in an article on The Conversation, a website showcasing academic research. Published by Daniel Miller, a professor at University College London, it said young people were “turning away in their droves” from Facebook and that the social network “is not just on th ...

Music Review: NON - Back to Mono

Music Review: NON - Back to Mono Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2012 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 1:53 a.m., Sunday, December 2, 2012 Along with artists such as Throbbing Gristle, SPK, Cabaret Voltaire and others, NON was featured in the groundbreaking book Industrial Culture Handbook (1983) from RE/Search. In 1977, the mainstream media thought punk bands were turning music into anarchy. Mute Records founder Daniel Miller was an early champion, and has released a number of albums by NON, including the new Back to Mono. Convicted murderer Phil Spector coined that term when stereo replaced his beloved mono in the mid '60s. A perverse sense of humor was always a part of the original industrial bands, and NON offers a fine example on the opening track. "Watusi" is an unreleased studio recording from 1978, which was re-recorded in ...

PHOTOS: Hollywood's Most Powerful Authors

This story comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter and first appeared in the Dec. 7 issue of the magazine. Written by Tim Appelo, Marc Bernardin, Lesley Goldberg, Borys Kit, Andy Lewis, Daniel Miller, Philiana Ng, Kimberly Nordyke, Sophie Schillaci and Tatiana Siegel When THR contacted James Patterson about being on its inaugural list of the 25 most powerful authors in Hollywood, he scoffed. "Power list? More like powerless list." But while conventional wisdom puts writers far down the totem pole, the truth is that from "The Hunger Games" to the upcoming "The Hobbit," books remain the most durable source of content for films and TV. THR selected those living authors who have been most successful in shepherding their books from page to screen, balancing success in publishing (total output, sales, best-sellers) and in Hollywood (completed adaptations, projects in development, screenwriting and producing credits) while accounting for cultural influence.

Gareth_Price: The Dark Reality of Secession Fantasy
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
You would think, reading the plaintive petitions of secessionists, that they were an embattled minority saving the last vestiges of America -- and, by extension, the English language -- from imminent extinction. Sure, by last Friday morning there were just 863,000 or so signatories -- around 0.27 percent of the population -- on petitions from all fifty states. Research by Neil Caren, assistant professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina suggests that there are closer to 300,000 actual individuals, with many signing multiple petitions. But, while small in number, petitioners almost certainly belong to a majority demographic. Caren's data shows petition signers as predominantly male; it is a fair punt that they are mostly white and speakers of English. It's perhaps easy to dismiss petitioners as fringe cranks wearing three-cornered tin-foil hats. Perturbingly, however, the undercurrents of American secessionist movements run deeper. Separatist movements ...

Texas Secessionist Explains Why State Wants To Leave Union
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Daniel Miller, president of the Texas Nationalist Movement, has been a proponent of his state seceding from the United States long before the bandwagon took off in the wake of President Barack Obama's reelection. On Tuesday evening, however, he spoke with Fox News' Sean Hannity and claimed that the recent trend of White House petitions indicated that many Americans now stood with him in opposition to the nation's supposed path toward Marxism. “The fact of the matter is that there cannot be a union between those that esteem the principles of Karl Marx over the principles of Thomas Jefferson," Miller said. "Here in Texas, we esteem those principles of Thomas Jefferson, that all political power’s inherent in the people. And what we have seen given on Tuesday was that a majority of the people in the United States, and the states in which they reside, esteem the principles of Karl Marx over those principles.” Secession petitions have now been filed on behalf of more than 40 s ...

This story comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter and first appeared in the August 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. By Daniel Miller A recent explosion of celebrity-seekers has gawking run amok as looky-loos ring the front door of Lucille Ball’s former house and Los Angeles considers cracking down. Yotam Solomon was taking an evening stroll with his dog near his home above the Sunset Strip in early June when, suddenly, a bright light shined in his face. The Israeli fashion designer, who has a Los Angeles-based eponymous line, struggled to make out who was accosting him when he heard a voice over a loudspeaker: "Don't worry, this is not a celebrity -- he wouldn't be walking his own dog." Solomon found himself staring at a van filled with gawking tourists. Like many tony neighborhoods throughout L.A., Solomon's has attracted increased attention from tour companies in the past 18 months.

  • TWENTIES
  • 1980
    Age 29
    An initial project had been suggested in 1980 but the success of Depeche Mode and Yazoo had kept Miller busy until the end of 1982.
    More Details Hide Details Lewis and Gilbert had both been releasing their own material under the name Dome. Duet Emmo was an anagram of Mute and Dome. With fellow Depeche Mode music producer Gareth Jones, Daniel Miller has released a few remixes under the name Sunroof.

Kreidler, Pizzicato Five, Goldfrapp, Faust, MGMT, Charles Wilp, Ellis Island Sound, Future Bible Heroes and To Rococo Rot.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1968
    Age 17
    Miller first became interested in synthesizer music at Guildford School of Art where he studied film and television from 1968–71.
    More Details Hide Details By the end of the sixties he had become frustrated with rock music due to the lack of experimentation. Around this time he was discovering the sound of German bands like Can, Faust, Neu! and Kraftwerk. These bands were creating new sounds, something Miller wanted to hear. He worked as a DJ in Switzerland for a while before returning to England at the height of punk. He began listening to punk because of the energy and excitement of the music. He liked the whole do-it-yourself attitude that came with the style of music and later spilled over into the electronic music scene. Synthesizers were becoming cheaper to buy and new bands were appearing such as Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire. This inspired Miller to create his own music. Making some money from film editing and working long hours he gathered enough money to buy a cheap Korg 700S synthesizer and a four track tape recorder. This led to the creation of The Normal.
