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

James Taylor

Don't feel bad for being a slow reader. I just finished the Marcello Mastroianni biography last week (I started it in August). And I don't even have kids...

Mick Jagger? Lowest form of human life? That's a title I'd reserve only for Mr. James Blunt.


If you don't like the "Rocks Off" video and song you probably have rocks in your fucking head...killer stuff.

And slow reading? I'm hammering through "Power Broker - Robert Moses and the Fall of NY". 1,200 pages. Started in September...just passed the 400 page mark. Not easy meaterial to digest but essential reading for NYC history buffs...


Great shots of the old Bowery, however fleeting. The filming was by Robert Frank (he did the Cocksuckers Blues documentary), who lived/kept a studio at Bowery and Bleecker, so this was basically the Stones in his back yard.


bah! haven't finished reading the Richards' book myself (only up to ch. 3, even, for i be teh LAZY!).

and fwiw, Jagger was my teen-aged self's role model. your mom would've loved me. ;*)
