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

Great find.

Thinking that much of the attention that AOC is getting is due to the fact that she is:
1) Young
2) A women
and in that order.
(I know those are THE 2 obvious factors, but I really think it starts with her youth first, and then that she's female)
Let me explain:
It is STILL the case whenever ANY government/industry/military?university governing body is shown in most media....
IT'S A BUNCH OF OLD (mostly white) (mostly BALDING) MEN!
Makin' decisions about net regulations, abortion, driver-less cars, daycare. university policy and tuition, etc. Old. Old. Old.
They're a bunch of OLD men who are beyond whatever the hell it is they're discussing. Do they even HAVE a smart-phone? Do they know what one IS? And don't get me started on Prez candidates (T-Dupe is 72; Biden 74: Bernie, lost count)....WHO under 30 gonna vote for Grandpa?)
So to most of these seniors it's like who is this punk kid trying to tell us Titans what to do? Why do they upset EVERY meeting they're in? And wotthehell is a TWITTER?

I'M an old balding white guy, and I wouldn't want me in charge of ANYTHING!
BRING ON 'DA YOOTS fer chrissake!
GO AOC!
(This comment works better if imagined in the voice of George Costanza ;>)
