For Those of You Still in Gotham

Something worth checking out:

Max Ryazansky put on a lot of the first hardcore shows I ever went to. Since then he has done a lot of really sick and interesting photography work having to do with punk rock and eccentric Americans. Check it out:

He will have some work up at the show posted above, so check it out and support a solid dude doing solid things. You can see a lot of his photos via the link below.

mike crow and i made it out to prague this weekend where i ambushed mike sheffield and our assorted extended family members in town. they were all mad nice (thanks guys) and showed us what's up in prague. turns out there's a lot of shifty living to go along with the pretty bridges and shit.

i already posted this video on my tumblr but until i recharge the batteries in my camera this is all i've got. peep it:

Some Nostalgia

So, I was hanging out on the internet the other day, when good friend David Hauptman made a joke about Boston Beatdown.  So I promptly went on youtube and found someone who posted the entire 40 minute FSU love/beat-fest.

thanks xseektruthx!  My favorite part is when one of the FSU guys is talking about how if Ian Mackaye saw a kid drinking a beer at an all ages show, he might shoot him a dirty look.  in boston?  kid'll get the shit kicked out of him, and his back broken on the t-stop at commonwealth ave, and stabbed in kenmore square.

I ran into cohort Ian-Bert today in the Steinhardt computer lab -- first time we'd seen each other since like before Spring Break, it was rad.


Nothing new except Joepaper and I went to the foundation center to continue looking for some showpaper funding.
Party on dudes.

to the guys from skidmore who shannon says read this:

we aresterdam

i know i know, i said i was going to post videos from spain and morocco ages ago. i just have way too much footage, and my stomach turns like i have to poop every time i look at it. its coming though. maybe someone cares.

but in more recent and less stomach-virus related news, a few of us went to amsterdam this weekend. a lot of a'dam is mickey mouse tourist hell, but we caught a protest put on by some hippy punx for autonomous spaces. and we investigated those 'coffee shops' a little bit.
