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

I wonder if that Soup of the Day was served November 9.


Great stuff! Really feels like going back over 2016. I especially like your shot of the Puck Building.

Where is the portrait of Mozart?

Alex in NYC

That punky, goat-throwing Mozart was very briefly affixed to the southeastern-most wall on Cortlandt Alley at Franklin Street. It's long, long gone. It was only up for about two days before someone removed it.


Nice rack....

but....but....when's it all going to end, Johnny? The countdown to our Brand New ! National Nightmare has begun.....with Daily HORRIFIC Daily Updates Daily From DAILY HELL!

Just the Inaugeration (gag) itself: NOBODY wants the gig! Garth says 5Mill ain't enough to offset anticipated sales declines.
Will the Nooge cave and grab the Headline Gig? (HE doesn't have to worry about sales declines.) Will Lewis Black agree to co-host with Bill O'Reilly? Word on the street has the ex-New York Cultural Ambassador, Taylor Not-So-Swift, leaning towards the Red Carpet/Surprise Cameo Appearance/Sex In The VIP Ladies Lounge trifecta.

DON'T get me started on the SERIOUS's like Robin Willians, George Carlin, Sam Kinison AND Hunter were asked to write up the most B A T S H I T C R A Z Y USA of the future scenario they could think of......and this is worse.....get ready for Reaganesque Trickle-Down/De-Regulate/FuckThePoor on steroids with a mescaline chaser. AND HE'S TAKING ADVICE FROM KARL ROVE AND AND AND KISSINGER FOR CHRISAKES!!!

Answer to Leonard Cohen's final LP title question.....NO, Leonard, I do NOT want it darker.


@DrBOP- Trump's inauguration may turn out like Nixon's back in 1969

Kinda hope not, though. A friend is attending the Million Woman March that day; I don't want her to get hurt just because the cops go apeshit over one guy throwing a rotten tomato at Bad Cheeseburger.

Scott Adams of Dilbert fame - his blog has been a useful primer to regain sanity after the Trump Triumph - he goes over how the anti-Trumper brain is suffering from cognitive dissonance which causes illogical and ridiculous thoughts - check it out
