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

Glad to have you back. Trying to think of the perfect song for this moment (returning), but nothing comes to mind. My mind is clouded of the thought of what NYC is becoming (has become).

Rick Schindler

Welcome back!


Welcome back! Looking forward to your music recommendation posts.

David Van Biema

Better to write than not to write. Welcome back. David

Chris Barrus

Involuntary hiatus due to having to deal with hard issues of life is all too common now in our demographic. Stinks.

Please keep writing. We'll keep reading.

well welcome back. i don't know you nor you me, but who cares, love the blog. the best thing (i have found) is to always work thru pain (18 novels worth!)so just keep on working. best medicine there is.


Well I'm REALLY disappointed that you are going to be back more regularly.....because I was saving up a comment reference for one of your infrequent returns....."How Can We Miss You If You Won't Go Away?" (Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks).....

.....and's just dust in the wind (OUCH!OUCH!OUCH!.....sorry :+)

VERY glad you're back!
