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

Fine Nonvoters NOW

People should be fined for not voting.


I just found out yesterday that another interpretation of that sticker is there is a cohort of people who say they are not going to vote out of spite because they are being "harassed" so much by all the texts and calls urging them to vote.

I understand the emotion behind that thought, but it's really cutting off your nose, you know?

Early voting ended here in TX today. It's going to be *really* interesting to see the final numbers of early votes. Wednesday is also going to be really interesting to see "final" results.

But, yeah, I was the first one to vote on Saturday at my polling place. (I was at the polling place 15 minutes before they opened because I had some pretty wicked nightmares. So, I stopped to see how many poll workers were there and then went off to get them breakfast and coffee.)

Let's do this.

Noise Annoys

Well, I don't know about fined. But they should certainly have the right to complain about -any-damn-thing- taken away from them 'til the next voting cycle...


Oh rest assured i will certainly be voting ... America isnt going to make itself great again, it needs our help
