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

Hate to be a bummer but the sad thing is that a hearing aid is not going to cut this problem. It might make you hear louder, but does hardly anything for being able to better understand people in a noisy environment. It is a function of the healthy human ear to filter sound, to separate background noise from what's important. Once this function is gone - due to ear damage - you are fucked. I've been there myself since 1988 :-(

I worry about this. When it's quiet, I don't hear (much) ringing. But when I'm in a crowd, or even a group, trying to focus on one person, I just can't make out their words. Alex, in what way did your slippery slope occur: ringing then group troubles, vice versa, all at once?

Typing this while listening to loud music on headphones. I'm an idiot.

Some hope for us T-sufferers in the distant future: stem-cell therapies should allow us to replace damaged hair cells in the ears. This is probably 20-40 years out, but we're young enough to have a good chance of being around. Best, -Ted

Tinnitus Miracle Book is just a wonderful product. I used to hear a constant buzzing ever since I stopped working in a loud kitchen. Now there's no more buzzing!
