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

Unfortunately, there is a segment of the population that will always buy/read this rag.
The disenfranchised set is represented in every city/town and in the world of television they are known as Fox News viewers.

Not a republican

He sounds like someone who tells it like it is. Kurt Cobain killed himself. As everyone has been told (if you follow religion) that if you kill yourself you go to hell. I know that and I am not even from a country that says you have to believe. Nor do I, but I am tolerant and understand why they believe.
It's ok if he is conservative, we can all get along in our beliefs. Fox news is a great place to get an opposite view of someone like you. Who slanders successful men and women by calling them "hateful, intolerant, homophobic, racist, jackbooted conservative " To someone like me and my students you are the lowest piece of trash the human race has to offer the world. Your intolerable publications of your opinion is what the liberal people breed on. If it was all straight facts and stats then you guys would loose by a far measure.
Disagree with me if you want. I don't mind the banter. But remember I am straight forward and as matter of fact as you can get. I know history, facts, and stats. I guess the debate is already over..... you loose.

"I know history, facts, and stats. I guess the debate is already over..... you loose."

Yet somehow, simple spelling still eludes you.

"If it was all straight facts and stats then you guys would loose by a far measure."

Actually we would have had Al Gore as president in 2000. John Kerry in 2004.
Or, if you discount stolen elections, we would have impeached Bush.

"To someone like me and my students"

Where do you teach? Bob Jones University?

You may not be a Rethuglican, but your charming manner dictates otherwise.......

The only thing that Sean Delonas is successful at is all of the above. Now, the debate is over and YOU lose. ( correct spelling, BTW )

Less coffee

One of the saddest things I've witnessed is how left wing folks--one of which I was always so proud to be--have become exactly like the right wing folks I find so frustratingly non-rational. If someone raises a point, it's not addressed. Instead, the person is villified, attacked personally, and some irrelevant and often adolescent point is waved around with a 'nyah nyah' attitude. Right-wing behavior by the left was most obvious and prevalent over the past year among, very sadly, Obama supporters, both during the primary season and regular election run. I keep wondering if it's immaturity or something else that can be explained away, that won't make me feel like a man without a party. But there isn't. Maybe people have just become louts as a rule, and I'm just getting too old. Still, I find it sad.

Back to the original issue--the supposedly offensive cartoon never struck me as racist or as equating Obama with a chimp. It seemed like it was saying the stimulus bill sucked so badly, a chimp could have written it. On top of that, Obama didn't write the bill, anyway. But these days, I suppose asking people of either party to understand the basic ways in which government works would be asking too much.

Hey, folks, you won. He got elected. He got a Dem Congress to work with. Why so prickly?

Alex in NYC

Oy. I think the point I was trying to make was less about this particular cartoon and more about the work of Sean Delonas as a whole (and Delonas' taskmasters at the `Post). He's ALWAYS acted as a firebrand/agitator. He's ALWAYS taken slanderous potshots and reinforced hateful stereotypes (which is why I don't feel particularly bad about using the adjectives I did to describe him). Seriously, go peruse some of his past cartoons. Gawker posted a nice roundup of some of his classier pics recently. Go take a look then come back and defend him with a straight face:

the Post is still the most entertaining paper in NYC, and has been for my entire adult lifetime. the cartoons and editorials are sometimes infuriating, but easy to skip/ignore. I hope every single other NY paper, including the Times, folds before they do, and I'm as liberal as anyone reading this.
