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

You mean you need to get 'organazised'...

Personally, I never found running in public to work for me, but that's just me. Don't wanna discourage you from your new phys-ed program. I tried doing laps around Tompkins years ago, but when I work out I want to be around other people that are also working out, and not dodging everyday pedestrians. The other problem is that when it rains your jogs are cancelled, and in the winter? Forget it. Running in 15 degrees, no thanks. I'm not the picture of physical fitness and go through stages at the gym attendance. I'm very good about going for several days or weeks at a time, then I fall off the wagon and don't go at all. When I do go I try to do 50 min of cardio. 25 bike/25 elliptical. Not a fan of running. In terms of weight loss, I've found that working out isn't exclusively the solution. Cutting down on the ice cream and beer might help, even though it sucks to not have it all the time. From what I can see we're roughly the same age and as we know, or from what they tell us, metabolism plays a big part. I believe that because considering what I eat on a daily basis, in my opinion I should be at least 10 pounds lighter...but at this age that no longer applies, maybe if I was 20 years younger that equation would work out. Now, the best I can expect is to just maintain a weight that's not great but not off the charts either. I could still stand to lose 10-15 pounds and I intend to do so...someday, but I also feel if I ate a bowl of steam three times a day all week, I still wouldn't lose weight. Gyms are expensive but I would recommend maybe the YMCA on 14th street. They're clean, not crazy expensive and very kid friendly so you could bring your children with you.

Good luck!

Starting out you always feel like an idiot. If you're a woman and you start out and it's dark, you can feel a little scared. But you go and you do and you get a little less intimidated as you go. Seriously, get a pedometer if you can and start trying to beat your steps each day. And then, sign up for the first 5K you can. 3 miles is not as awful as you think -- my first one took an hour. My last one, in April, took 30 minutes. And I do maybe 3 a year because I don't really run. Can't wait to hear more. Good for you!

Getting started and into an exercise routine is always the hardest part (at least it was for me). You're off! As Randee said, Good for you!

Atta boy! Just imagine your running the hills in Granville and it will feel easier tomorrow....keep at it!

Don't go for big improvements. Go for small increases...sometimes (several times) repeat what you did yesterday or the day before ("consolidate"). Avoid injury, take days off (I'm an every other day guy for almost all excercise). Embrace the ego death. Do this thing!

Congratulations on starting!
