ps: great photo . . Andrew Kass, very much digging the collage detail, on the right – too.
it’s a sad day in NYC – we are losing another iconic shop.
it’s particularly sad news for me. TEKSERVE has been a long standing patron of artloversnewyork, ever since I first began posting my photos and art scene coverage on artnet, more than . . 14 years ago.
I’ve been really proud to post my photos and voice my thoughts under their banner – and I guess I’ll have to take it down, though I might leave it up for a few more months – as a kind of digital ‘ghost army ‘ homage.
getting that pay check was often my only source of income and it kept me going through, often raw and thin times. but it also kept me indie and I never . . sold out. the TEKSERVE banner was like the proverbial ‘carrot before the horse’ – it kept my camera and me running around – to keep the traffic numbers up – that kept the checks on coming.
it’s a sad day, and a sad New York: no more Pearl Paint, no more Other Music, no more Tekserve.

this is just a slice of the ‘scene’ behind the downstairs desk of . . TEKSERVE co-founder DICK DEMENUS, an avid collector.
ok, and here’s a head-up !!!
DICK & his visionary collection . . will be featured on an upcoming . . . HISTORY CHANNEL – ‘AMERICAN PICKERS’ !!!
I kid you – NOT !! and I heard FRANK & MIKE bought quite a number of items, too.
the episode has already been filmed, and will be aired sometime this NOV 2016 !!!!!
so: wow !!!!
in fact, true his contrary, creative and yet scientific nature . . DICK had quite a jungle of live plants growing down there – flourishing under the artificial light, of the basement under the retail store.
DICK DEMENUS, the co-founder of TEKSERVE.
at his ‘desk’.
we used to call him ‘the boss’ or . . ‘Domingos’ for that added ‘hood’ flair !!, it was a very diverse group – with great fondness.
I have to say . . true to form, he is a very ‘curious’, and talented ‘creative’ and again: contrarian . . . long live contrarians !!
who was the first to ‘get’ what would become, within another 2 decades – the dominating Mac revolution, and . . TEKSERVE, for a long time was the place to go – for all things APPLE.
as a vintage collector, and not just a tinker-er . . his passion for the history of things, and the future vision of all things sci-fi . . cannot be easily articulated in a few words, I mean: how many other bosses in this city . . look like they just walked off a space ship colony !!!
DICK, through TEKSERVE . . supported many important, innovative, independent, & future-leaning causes throughout the years, among them the green re-cycling of computer hardware, and a broad range of NPR radio shows, and independent podcasts.
artloversnewyork – is proud to have been a part of that family.
drop by the auction – this Tuesday, and see what I’m talking about !!
maybe you can score yourself – a piece of technical, sci-fi, or even – retro signage history.
