Thieves Suck

My name is Brian Griffith and I make digital art, websites and music. While performing on July 6th, 2014 a hooligan snuck into the instruments' holding area and stole a bag containing: most of my 1/4" cables, power adapters, handheld recorder and 3 month old Macbook Pro laptop computer. 

If the sting of having your goods stolen wasn't bad enough, my computer wasn't yet paid off— not even close, actually. Coupled with having my tax information, while in a few folders, still easily accesible, this turned into Identity Theft

This money is going to help recoup the loss of my equipment, which officially is $3,160 and will mostly go into paying off my computer. As a young adult in a creative field that is highly digital in nature, having to exist without one cripples my productivity and puts a halt on: music recording, animated GIF making, photo editing, website building, app creation and promotion of various events— that is, my work and livelihood.

I make pretty neat stuff and would love to continue to do so.
See for yourself:

The Current Sea A design team I co-founded where we specialize in .gifs, net art and weird web stuff.
Screaming Claws An improvisational/experimental music collective I co-founded that focuses on ambient, new age and drone, in style and improvisation, in process. 
greyghost This is my solo moniker for the music I produce from my solo bass explorations. 
Instagram I think we all can agree this is pretty cool (hint: look at it in the 'Grid View')

With a small bit of help, I'll once again be able to add color and whimsey to the internet.
