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

Yup! That kid's face really is ripe for punching. He's plenty old (and rich) enough to know better. He does, and like most of his rich and obnoxious pals, likes to play dumb and act as though he doesn't know what being white while wearing that stupid Neo-KKK hat in front of a Native American means. Punch that face. Now.

I was angrier at the way mainstream news and online media backpeddled so quickly from "outrage over white boys harassing Native American veteran" to "it's complicated and we shouldn't rush to judge these poor victimized kids." Fuck that gaslighting: especially since Sandmann's parents were rich enough to hire a GOP-supporting PR firm to spin his image and make it look like he was an INNOCENT VICTIM. If this kid is up for nomination as a Supreme Court justice 30 years from now, I will officially become an anarchist and blow shit up. Even if I am at that point an old lady on a walker. And before someone says, 'Hey, bet you did some dumb stuff when you were a teenager,' Imma gonna say I did not march in antiabortion protests or harass old Native American men. I was a feminist in high school (I had a Ms. magazine subscription when I was 17); I marched with Cesar Chavez during the United Farm Workers' strike; and I passed out boycott/devestment flyers against apartheid South Africa. The one thing I apologize for is being a fan of the Doobie Brothers after Michael McDonald became their lead singer. When friends found my stash of Doobie Brothers records in my collection, they taunted me to no end. And I deserved it.

Equating what a Maga hat stand for to the people wearing them to swastikas worshiped by the Nazis and fascists around the world is beyond stupid
I'm not pro trump or pro anything but comparing right wing supporters to the evil of the Nazi empire is insane

Is it?
