A big challenge in activism is fighting harmful things without necessarily shaming, stigmatizing, and belittling people who buy into those harmful things. For instance: pseudoscience, fundamentalism, altmed, normative beauty standards. It’s tempting to…

In COMPELLING black and white, culled from my archive of long lost favorites (RIP:  Old Silent Barn, Double Dagger, These Are Powers) and young, budding superstars (members of The Epoch, Bluffing, Gradients & the So So Glos).

——————————

Original blurb:

I say: My first zine, lovingly created for the fans. Made up of images and fragments of images culled from my extensive photographic record of all-ages New York concerts. Shipping is included in the price!

Quimby’s (Chicago) says: Lotsa show photos, bands jumpin’ and screamin’, compiled filthy, smoky houseshow hordes, collaged and un-collaged. Is this really all going on in New York? I don’t think I’ve been to a show in that town where anyone’s done more than nod their head to the beat. Thanks for the glimmer of hope, Richard. -EF 26p, b&w “eggshell finish”, 5.5”x8.5”

Matt FX (MTV Skins) says: The only two books on my coffee table are this and Amy Sedaris’ book on entertaining.

Joe Ahearn (Clocktower Gallery, Silent Barn, amazing human) says: Awesome.

For those of you who might not know, I’ve released two books of my photography:  SHEA and fun:danger::danger:fun

Both are available at my Etsy!

A brief description from the O.G. announcement: 

5 years of pictures from one of my favorite places in New York, Shea Stadium — in both its incarnations. Screaming; hollering; screamhollering. Bodies, oh God, the bodies — they are everywhere and they are all young and beautiful. The best friends you will ever have on the best night of your life. Handsome covers printed in glowing silver ink by my good friends at ACME Letterpress. 

Please consider ordering this if you owe me, in lieu of drinks.

Please consider ordering this for your nieces and nephews if you are afraid they will end up boring. 

Please consider ordering this if you are in it, because soon you will be burdened with responsibilities and a job and being in a smelly room on a Tuesday doesn’t sound as fun as a new episode of NCIS.

I love you all. 


Order:

First edition numbered and limited to 105 copies:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/176143045/shea

For those of you living in NYC I offer hand-delivery, so you can meet me and shake my hand, should you so desire!

"It is physically and emotionally draining to be called upon to prove that these systems of power exist. For many of us, just struggling against them is enough — now you want us to break them down for you? Imagine having weights tied to your feet and a gag around your mouth, and then being asked to explain why you think you are at an unfair disadvantage. Imagine watching a video where a young man promises to kill women who chose not to sleep with him and then being forced to engage with the idea that maybe you are just a hysterical feminist seeing misogyny where there is none. It is incredibly painful to feel that in order for you to care about my safety, I have to win this verbal contest you have constructed “for fun.”"

I can probably learn a lot from this.

As some of you may have heard, our good friend Emily Sprague was hit by a truck earlier this year and was seriously injured. In the months since she had been in a neck brace and a sling but she is healing day by day and, just this week, has been freed from the neck brace! 
Some of you may also remember the Song-a-day series from Florist (Emily, of course), eskimeaux, Japanese Breakfast, Frankie Cosmos and Small Wonder! Those are gathered here,
http://may5to12songs.tumblr.com/
But Emily has gone one step further and released those songs under the Florist moniker as an album - “6 Days of Songs,” for you to download!
LINKY -> http://florist.bandcamp.com/album/6-days-of-songs
We’re so happy that Emily’s voice is back in action and we hope you’ll check out “6 Days of Songs”!
