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

That's just hilarious. Jet and I had a similar experience in an Indian restaurant, although it was Indian music, but it definitely was the SAME song over and over..not quite as bad as your 'groundhog day' evening! x

This was centuries ago (according to my kids), but one night we were stuck eating dinner at a Perkins Restaurant in Staten Island, after bad weather and an accident closed the road I had to take back home, and it was literally the only place open at the time. When we came in, AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" was playing. Which I thought was funny, given how the place reeked of Senior Special night. But from the time we were seated to the time I yelled for the check (our waitress disappeared and never returned: maybe because she wasn't a metal fan), it was nonstop Brian Johnson's narrative of power sex. When a flustered employee finally showed up at our table, he mumbled something about "disgruntled employee messed with our Muzak player, we're trying to fix it." It did sort of ruin the song for me: whenever I hear it, I associate it with bad club sandwiches and freezing rain on the Staten Island Expressway.
