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

Well there you go......I had conjured up an image of some coked-out single father who got his meth lab fix-ins mixed up with baby food prep.....

So much so that I was SHOCKED to initially discover (as I followed along) that you were married.....FIRST thing that came to mind =
She must be a saint.

I've always assumed the "pablum" part of the name was a reference to fatherhood; one of the recurring themes of the blog is how your current experiences as a dad are reconciled with the interests and endeavors of your youth. At times it's messy or painful (in that the readership - even those who don't have children - can feel & share that pain), but always a good read.

As we get older it's important to remember who we were, and cultivate that as an aspect of who we ARE. Those who cut themselves off from their past tend to lose sight of themselves. "Growing up" is way, WAY more complicated than getting rid of your old vinyl or wearing suits instead of leathers. I think you're on the right track!
