no internet -> lack of updates

i did have a great photo of a car that somehow ended up on top of another car in a port chester, ny parking lot but I am an idiot and deleted it, so instead I bring you this other photo of an escalade chained up in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

The Hasids win, the hasids win! Best store name of all time. South Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Dubbs playing drums in Joe Coffee. Go see them live.

Door at Newtonz. I don't know why I never took a photo of it when I lived there. Pretty cool Diane Arbus print I blew up at Staples and Kevin cut out and glued to the door.

PDN 30 to watch 2010

Some interesting work, some garbage. For the most part, pretty interesting.

This is how I feel about your 20th century ways of life.

Box of faces. Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

White people are crazy.

First cone of the season. Jackson Heights, Queens.

Fake flowers on my old street: Classon Ave. Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

Forward to Death played a reunion show at the Asbury Lanes last Friday. Here is Andy in his trademark boxerbrief frontman apparel. Touring with this band was great, and I really mean it that those 4 guys couldn't do 1 bad thing to a person (except maybe Andy beating someone up at a voodoo glowskulls show)

For all the fallen homies in Queens.

Epic Jamaica KFC fail.

Jackson Heights?

It's cool to wear Jncos and Jamiroquai hats in heaven. It's also cool to be a 4 fingered dj. What's up Astoria.

There are no 40 oz in Birmingham.

My friend Daisy was just in town from Birmingham, AL. She is probably one of the funniest people I know. Definitely the hardest working artist.

When she isn't busy making visual records of memories and visions that scare the shit out of her, she also teaches at a great place called Studio by the Tracks which was founded in 1989 with the mission to provide free art classes to troubled children and adults with asperger's, autism, and mental illness.

Here is a bunch of artwork by artists who make work at Studio by the Tracks.

Callow master, my flaws are infinite.

Mini van parked on my block. Check the 3d skull mirror.

don't have a cow, man: website update.

Check it.

Also, I've recently discovered that weed blogs love my photos. Awesome!


Sussex County out takes from last week.

Ginerbread castle. Built in 1928 by architect Joseph Urban. Currently abandoned / for sale. Reading the guest book on the site, it's sad to see how so many people have their fondest childhood memories of this place and now it's just falling apart.

Humpty Dumpty guarding the gingerbread house.

Tara re-enacting a scene from Family Double Dare.

Ducks crossing frozen lake.

Performer singing during a wedding expo held at Crystal Springs Resort. If you ever see one of these in your area, I highly recommend being a total scumbag and showing up right when it is supposed to finish to load up on free champagne and shrimp cocktail.

Chainsaw art; this should be in the winter olympics.

Spanish Bombs tour 11/2006

There was just an amazing self destructive and unflinching yet smart attitude about Spanish Bombs that made them so brilliant. Well, maybe not the smartest, but it was adventurous and pure. Here are some pictures from their last US tour from 3 years ago.

Playing in an alley between some rubble buildings in Tijuana. The kids were def. excited for a new American band that they had never heard before but I think most of them were just wondering why they didn't sound like madball. The ride back to cali was fun with 4 out of 6 people throwing up because of some sort of over the counter Mexican self medication.

With Austin, TX finest; Leslie.

This was one of the best shows ever. Modern Life Is War was on tour with converge adn had an off day in Pittsburgh when SB was going to be playing a house show in Morgantown, West Virginia. The show was at this dude Lintball's house, which was by far the crazies living situation I have ever encountered. It was in an empty living room on the 2nd floor apt. above a bar. Jeff "accidentally" kicked out a window during the set which landed on a passing car smashing their window. The cops came and just told everybody to keep it down. Nick bock is showing off his Dumbo tattoo which he acquired earlier that day. In the background is this crazy guy whose name I forget, but he was like 35, sprained his ankle at the show and then got mugged outside the house.

Driving through the night in the SB van: Auschwitz.

New Pieter Hugo project

This is awesome.


Opens February 25th at Yossi Milo

Book out by Prestel

The Nigerian film industry is the third largest in the world, after those of the United States and India. Nigerian films often deal with the moral dilemmas facing modern Africans today and tell stories familiar to African families: of religion, violence, AIDS, and economic hardship. Much as he did with his previous book, the hugely successful The Hyena & Other Men, Pieter Hugo documents the intense and incredibly colorful world of Nollywood from an unusual angle.

His images are staged representations of Nigerian film sets, featuring local actors who recreate themes and characters from Nollywood films: young men in military fatigues; witch doctors, healers and saints; hunters with their kill; prostitutes in their rooms. The result is a series of surreal tableaux rooted in local symbolic imagery. Accompanying the photographs are texts by Chris Abani, whose short fiction piece captures the chaos of the filmmaking process, and an essay by Zina Saro-Wiwa on Nollywood’s explosive growth and what it means to Nigerians. Presented in a simple and restrained format, Hugo’s gorgeous photographs reveal a little-known phenomenon to a wider audience.
