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 also attended. I've never seen a larger or more diverse crowd.

For me seeing this actually eased some of the pain of the past few days.

Ah, the tantrums of generation creampuff. Very entertaining!

Here's to 1,457 more days of AWESOME !

I realize you're just being what the digital natives call "a troll," Mr. P, but I am genuinely curious -- do you really think things -- even at this very early stage of the proceedings -- are legitimately going well? Are you pleased with the actions of the office and its appointees? Do you not find certain things -- like, say, the "alternative facts" exchange or the newly mandated National Day of Patriotic Devotion -- a bit bizarre? Serious question.

Well Alex - unlike most liberals / dems re: Hillary - I am perfectly willing to admit Trump is not even close to the perfect vehicle for this. HOWEVER - he is exactly what was needed vis-a-vis a total reset - a total FUCK YOU - to American government, with its lack of transparancy, corruption and non-representation of THE PEOPLE. I'll go one step futher and say that the MSM, as a result of their corruption and collusion, has created a historic level of cognitive dissonance with those who drink their kool aid and live in their sphere - you mention yourself, your circle, etc. Take a step back and look at it from the viewpoint of the other half of the country. We reject the facism, the intolerance, the hubris, the self-righteous entitlement, the ease of offense to every imagined slight. To us, President Trump is Punk Rock! A blow against the establishment, just like many on the left sought with Bernie. There will be mistakes but anything was better than still more leftist nonsense after 8 long years of it. Serious answer for you there - like Trump himself, may not be perfect but hopefully conveys the concept.

Hey There, Mr. Proxy -- Now, while I don't agree with you at all, I am grateful for your detailed, thoughtful and serious input. That said --"lack of transparancy, corruption and non-representation of THE PEOPLE" .... you could easily be talking about Trump's first week in office right there. I've maintained from the beginning that I understand the need for a total reset, but Trump ain't it. My goto analogy was that putting Trump in the White House is like putting a lit firecracker in a broken toaster. Will it shake things up? Sure! Will it fix anything? Nope.

Anyway, we'll see where we're all headed in due course. Let's keep it goin'. Cheers, man. - Alex
