Hey Gang, what a week! I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much, I’ve had my hands very full lately.
On a recent trip up to Massachusetts, I was talking with my parents about all the wonderful and energetic people we knew who had passed on and how they would be remembered. Then I realized my very question was probably why ballads were written and stories of old were told about certain individuals: so their personalities and deeds would not be lost to death.
Hey Readers! I hope everyone had a great Martin Luther King Jr. Day. And if you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend the movie Hidden Figures, it’s fantastic!
In other news, I finally found the first two issues of Grand Royal Magazine. It’s posted over on the intriguing Darwination Scans Blog. If you haven’t heard about it, this rare magazine was put out in the 90’s by The Beastie Boys. Check it out!
Rock and Roll!
Happy New Year! Today is the first day of an entirely new year. A real chance to try out new activities or refocus on older ideas that need more work or completion.
To that effect, I’m revisiting a photography zine I was working on back in 2015! And my short story writing will continue!
I wish all of you a bountiful new year full of peace, love and happiness!
Today, we demonstrated in front of Governor Cuomo’s office at 633 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10017.
A coalition of nyc organizations were present, speeches were given and protestors held up signs. We called for New York Governor Cuomo to unite the New York State Senate Democrats against fascistic President-elect Donald Trump.
If there was ever a time for vigilance, activism and dissent, that time is now.
Together, let’s make sure Mr. Trump’s new government does not become a fascist regime.
Recently, I had the chance to meet director, sculptor and fine artist Jim Mckenzie in SoHo. We first got in touch on Instagram about a year ago when I saw photos of his bright, colorful, fanciful art with it’s touch of melancholy. When we met in person, I immediately noticed his eyes. They were full of mirth and energy. I’d even say he has, “laughing eyes”.
I stumbled upon a fantastic blog which I have to share with you. It has tons of posts all about vintage and retro subjects from American culture. And many posts contain vintage photography! Lots of nostalgia here, but also lots of information.
So, basically, the blog is incredible!
