Noteworthy Photography

  • Burning Flags Press
    The website of Glen E. Friedman. Renowned for both his work with musicians like Fugazi, Minor Threat, Public Enemy, the Beastie Boys, Slayer (and many, many more) as well as his groundbreaking documentation of the burgeoning skateboard phenomenon in the late `70's, Glen has been privvy to (and has summarily captured on film) some of the coolest stuff ever. He's also an incredibly insightful and nice guy to boot.
  • SoHo Blues - Photography by Allan Tannenbaum
    Allan Tannenbaum is a local photographer who has been everywhere and shot everything, from members of Blondie hanging out at the Mudd Club through the collapsing towers of the World Trade Center on September 11th. You could spend hours on this site, and I have.
  • Robert Otter Photographs
    Amazing vintage photographs of New York City, specifically my own neighborhood, Greenwich Village.
  • oboylephoto
    Just some intensely cool photographs of abandoned places.
  • Rikki Ercoli's Legends of Punk
    Much like Glen E. Friedman (see above), Rikki Ercoli has managed to catch some amazing bands in their manic element.
  • Lost & Found Film
    A fascinating website devoted to undeveloped film found in vintage camers. A curious mixture of interesting and spooky.
  • Pinhole Photography by Veronica Saddler
    NYC landmarks shot through a pinhole lens. Neat-o.
  • Eugene Merinov
    Compelling shots of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave band performing live in various long-lost venues in a pre-sanitized New York City. Great stuff!
  • Edward Colver

I think the category

Song for an Ex (kinda meanspirited)

begins and ends with "Prayer to God" by Shellac (though you should probably change "kinda" to "extremely fucking"


This is my survey btw. I came up with it. Props to me.


Wow, you're REALLY into Killing Joke.

Geoff O'Donoghue

Good Angry Songs:
"Only" by Anthrax

This song is pure metal perfection from the opening tribal drums to the final power chord.

Name 5-10 wistful/bittersweet songs:
Song That Is Too Damn Sad:
"This Woman's Work" by Kate Bush

This song brings me close to tears every time I hear it. It had that effect even before I got married and had children. Watching the video is almost guaranteed to tip me over the edge.


"Electric City Demos by Firewater"

What's this you say? I know that you appear to be pals with Tod A., but this insider information that you taunt us with? That's just cruel...


dude, you love raw like sushi! :-)

Alex in NYC

I'll even take it a step further and say that virtually everything that Neneh Cherry has recorded is fuckin' godlike (`cept for maybe the lyrics to "Trout," which is still otherwise a damn great song). Where's she gone?
