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 now don't feel so silly about wearing my homemade Pussy Galore T-shirt.

Well, a little.

I had someone I didn't know too well unfriend me because I made a smarmy comment on a link she posted which I thought was a satire on crazy things parents buy. It was a website for scissors a parent would buy specifically to cut up food for their children, but the item was never referred to as scissors. I wish I could remember what they were called, something like foodtools or kidbites or smileybites. Tinybites I think. I said something like "maybe I'm not such a savvy shopper like you, but these look like scissors." Turned out it was her brilliant idea that she was marketing. My apology was never acknowledged.

That's great... all I really have to say about this is that if you are a REAL Cure fan, 'Friday I'm In Love' is the only song you WON'T like!!!

Alex in NYC

Hogwash. If you are "a REAL Cure fan," you'll give everything of theirs a fair shot. It's certainly not my favorite track of theirs, but what makes "Friday..." any worse than other blatant pop tunes like "Lovecats" or "The Walk" or "Lovesong" or "Close to Me"?


Joe Western

Well, it's ok to like that stuff so long as you own original Fiction pressings of the first 5 or so albums... Actually, I think everything they did up until, and including "Wish" was completely phenomenal. I have to put them up there with my other favorite, the Clash, purely for the reason of how many OTHER musical avenues both bands opened for me. I would have no clue about albums like Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" or Nick Drake's "Five Leaves Left" without being into the Cure. Also, I have to add that the version of "Close to Me" on the new "HOTD" re-issue, all by itself makes it a worth while purchase.
