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've pointed out about 80% of this list to acquaintances (they're no longer considered friends) who voted for the Orange Oligarch, but they still say to me, "You need to give him a chance. You don't know yet, maybe he'll be a fantastic president." So I've given up. I truly believe Trump supporters live in an alternative reality based on alternative facts. These former friends, however---were they always like this? I feel like they were abducted by aliens on November 9 and plugged into the Matrix. I sometimes want to tear off their shirts and look for the outlets on their backs.

I'm with you NoOriginalArt--I've stopped associating at all with several people who till now I never realized are total fucking morons.

NoOriginalArt

@David George-But aren't you a little sad? Or weirded out? People you thought you knew suddenly act like their brains were hijacked by a cult, or they had implants placed in their spinal cords. WTF happened in 2016? Did it start when David Bowie died?

David George

@NoOriginalArt: Sure I'm a bit sad, but more than anything ashamed for how Americans have behaved. Not so sure the degradation of common sense started when Bowie died (had not made that connection).
