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

With all due respect, no.

1. You want 50G to stay open for only two more years and then what? You're a sunk cost.

2. Only a few hundred people actually buy from your store cuz your location sucks.

3. For such a "downtown" and "underground music" record store where's the hardcore punk? Seriously, you've been around since I was a teenager and I haven't hit your place once cuz you're too good or stuck up to carry not only my scene's music but support an entire community's expression, so why should I support you now?

4. Close the store and do mailorder.

feel bad for him, a good guy. it's pretty much impossible to make money with a store that predominantly sells CDs, just aren't enough buyers. the average person streams music, and the people who are really into music buy vinyl.

might make sense to slash prices. all those experimental and jazz cds that have been sitting there for 10 years ain't gonna move at $18, but they might sell at $7-10, or two-for-one, or buy two cds get the third one free...or something. be creative. at least he'd get some cash flow.

good luck, DMG!
