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 love to read about record stores. I just figured you would want to open your own however unlikely that might be. One can always dream of opening a cool record shop like the ones from High Fidelity and Pretty In Pink, etc. Unfortunately, record stores will go the way of dinosaurs like you said. I am just as deeply saddened. I'll keep faithfully reading. I live for this shit.

The FYE is gone? WTF? That was a super convenient place to go pop in and buy a CD, some headphones or a DVD. (And what's there now?)

I briefly worked in one of these places during my Christmas break from freshman year. The employees might not care as much, but that's because the clientele doesn't care as much. Most of my shift was spent doing this exchange:

"Where can I find the Britney Spears CDs?"
"They're filed under 'B'."
"Thank you so much!"
"Just doin' my job."

Alex in NYC

At the moment, there's nothing there. Space for rent. It'll probably become a bank or something. :::sigh:::
