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

Just keep comin' up with sentences/sentiments like
"...of course, idiots like to fuck things up", and I will follow your blog FOREVER!!!

And you are correct sir.....there is no other single song that sounds so good cranked up to 11 while
traveling
your favorite multi-mile stretch of road doin' about 100 miles an hour.....and because it's 2013, I'll curtail the remainder of this descriptive passage.

What is wrong with people? I quite like some Aerosmith tracks, but "Dream On" is possibly the most overplayed and turgid of all "classic rock" songs. As someone who spent four years working in an office in which CBS 106.7 Lite FM was the radio station of choice I can testify as to the track's staunch refusal to shut up and die. Whenever I hear it I actually long for such forgotten obscurities as "Piano Man" or "Hotel California".

P.S. I love the Jonathan Richman track "Springtime in New York".

P.P.S. Please don't pick on Pet Sounds.

Jonathan Richman was never called an asshole.
