  3. 20 SOMETHING AND FULL OF ANGER, FULL OF LOVE

    What a let down it is to be a millennial. Student loans hover over me like an eternal black cloud. My mediocre job from the mediocre job-market pays a mediocre wage. I have nothing original or interesting to contribute to arts and culture - unless hunched over a glowing screen of some sort. My ego is inflated beyond measure and my loneliness is a blind reality. The mainstream has appropriated counterculture and the system we’re fighting wears Ray Bans. The movers and shakers gave the boot to the POC and vegan/gluten-free options have replaced mother’s cooking. My senses are dulled, my fire tamed - my discontent has no vehicle. Everything is good, but not good enough. Everything is bad and getting worse. What will I do with this seething anger? This overwhelming love? I don’t know now, but I know something must be done. I won’t let my generation stop me. I won’t let my generation down.

     

  4. STROLLING THROUGH ALPHABET CITY

    With the freezing temperatures subsiding at the onset of Spring, walking through the Lower East Side has been such a joy. Whether it’s admiring a Chico mural, feeling the breeze by the East River, or watching all the trust-fund hipsters take their dogs to Tompkins Square Park, I love every single moment of it.

  6. YUPPIE ENVY

    Goddamn yuppies. Everywhere. Young urban professionals. They’re pretty and white and they walk their dogs. They ride the subways wearing $1,000 coats. They’re talented and smart. They went to good schools and have a lot of friends. Yuppies. Everywhere. They eat good food and do a lot yoga. They have fancy job titles and make a lot of money. Yuppies. Goddamn yuppies. They listen to cool music and have even cooler websites. And those thick rimmed glasses, those thick rimmed glasses and nice leather shoes. Mother-fucking yuppies.

     

  7. ZINES BY DESILU MUNOZ

    I just received the zines I purchased from the lovely Miss Desilu Munoz. She’s an extremely talented photographer, documenting some of the most creative and interesting pockets of musicians, graffiti artists, and everyday folks in the Los Angeles area. It was great to see some of her stuff in print. It made me miss LA just a little bit more. I sincerely believe her photography is some of the best I’ve seen.

  8. NOTES - 3/4/14

    Being in New York I don’t have my own darkroom anymore. Instead there is a volunteer-run spot within walking distance of our apartment that functions as a punk venue/darkroom/screen printing space. Although I’m definitely missing the luxury of having all my own equipment, this is truly the next best thing! I just posted some prints of a couple photos I took during my first month here. One is of the Santa Claus pub crawl that happened in December and another is of the Pigeon Man. Both I shot with my Hasselblad and printed at the local darkroom. It’s my second time printing on fiber based paper. I must say, I don’t like how inconvenient it is to wait so long for a print to rinse and dry. I think I would only go this route if I were doing important prints I would physically display. One major downside of my current process is getting a decent scan. I don’t have my photo scanner with me anymore, so I had to scan them with my printer-scanner, which is really meant to scan documents rather than photos. The quality has degraded so much I almost felt like all that effort didn’t pay off in the end. Still, I’m making some progress on the photography front and I’m exciting to start shooting film again!
