City Noise has some great scans from NYC in late 80’s up to 2000. This is just a taste. See them all here
Friday saw the private opening of STAGES NYC in Soho. Our friend Jeff from The Art Collectors had a camera on-hand and put together a great set of pics summarizing the night. We couldn’t resist this photo of Lance Armstrong taking a shot of tequila with Tom Sachs. A couple more images are after the jump, and a full set of pics are here
If it works as well as it does in the video, it looks pretty awesome. Watch and decide for yourself. You may never shop the same way again.
Thank you Christopher Walken

No but there is a phobia, called Samhainophobia. …”Your fear of Halloween can result in the following symptoms: breathlessness, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, feeling sick, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to speak or think clearly, a fear of dying, becoming mad or losing control, a sensation of detachment from reality or a full blown anxiety attack”
Who knew of such a thing, for the full breakdown, go here. This site has TWBE URL, http://www.phobia-fear-release.com
We are pleased to present our 24th installment of Sound Advice featuring Hallie. Hallie is my sister, and since she had a heavy influence on my music when I was a juvy (she introduced me to Ice T) I felt it necessary to give her the Sound Advice I was supposed to do. Enjoy.

In this feature, two of our favorite people, Neil Anblomi and Anita Goodman, ask each other important questions
This week, Anita asks Neil…
Anita: Halloween is upon us again and I am running all over damn town trying to get my shit ready and piece together a costume that is both humorous and appealing to the opposite sex – why is it so hard to not look like either a total goofball or a complete slut on halloween? Anyway. A couple of years ago, I broke up with a long(ish) term boyfriend on Halloween, partly because he refused to wear a costume that matched mine (I was a french maid, and wanted him to be a butler) – what do you think is the importance of wearing matching costumes when you’re in a relationship? Is it totally obnoxious or a necessary evil? If you had a sig. o, what would you dress up as this year?

This is one of those epic shows that you’ll feel stupid for missing. Opening Halloween night.

Check out the “Islington punk squatter documentary ’83”, the narration is awesome!
Rich had a birthday September 30th, my birthday October 9th. Rich is to cheap to buy me a present because he is a broke loser. On his birthday I bought him a brand new duel cassette player, Sony Discman, gift certificates to Chipotle. And what the hell did I get? A large chunk of ten day leftover birthday cake. Thanks Asshole. How funny will it be next year when you get leftover birthday cake that’s 350 days old and I ain’t freezing it.
