“Death Becomes You” 2006

Look at the poison leaching out onto the cement. Everywhere I look, I still see teenagers  smoking and I find it hard to believe. When I was a kid of 13, smokes were 45¢ a pack. Fast forward 13 years and I can not finish a cigarette. My lymph nodes started burning so bad after a couple of puffs, that I had throw the cigarettes away. Maybe I was lucky that my lungs were shot…

Rainer Weiss “Black Holes” 2010

Black Holes can ruin your day. They swallow up entire planets sometimes. My uncle has been searching for them with a gigantic laser beam in Louisiana. I wish I could go on and on about them, but they are definitely above my paygrade.

“My Last Roll of Kodachrome” 2008

Progress is hard to swallow sometimes. Even though I’ve shot black & white film for a very long time, once or twice a year I’d shoot a roll of Kodachrome just for posterity’s sake. When Kodak stopped manufacturing K-64 it came as no surprise to anyone, but hurt almost anyone who’d been raised on the stuff. It wasn’t a high contrast “big color” type of film, but it was the closest thing to reality that one could put in a camera. It had a long run and now it lives in our scrapbooks and 8mm home movies from our past…

Michael Jordan 1991

michael-Jordan-matt-weberI’ve been watching the 2014 NBA finals and Lebron James is clearly the league’s best player, but the Spurs are the deepest and best coached team I have seen in a long time. Their ball distribution is the best and they are so selfless across the board that they can win when Duncan or Parker have an off night. I wonder how the 1991 Bulls would have matched up against the Spurs. Would they have had an answer for Michael they way they’ve managed to slow down James? This picture shows Michael just splitting through the Knicks like butter. The debate over who’s better, Lebron or Michael is a good one, but I think Michael is still the greatest player of all time…

NYC 1991

Magic-Johnson-AIDS-matt-weberI remember well how I felt back in ’91 when I heard the news. Magic was as lovable an athlete as any I’d had the privilege of watching. In 1991 the disease was still a virtual death sentence.

I knew an “Ambulance Chaser” once and was not surprised to read that Donald Sterling began his career in that line of work…There’s nothing else I can say that hasn’t already been said about Mr. Tokowitz, except that he is an embarrassment for most human beings and should slither away into his tiny hole, I meant huge mansion and die…

“New Home for the Urban Prisoner” 1989


I don’t remember where this awful looking building is, but I assume it was meant to incarcerate the new exploding population of crack-Heads that were making NYC a real drag back in ’89…
If I am wrong and this is a condo with slits for windows, then I wasn’t keeping up with the latest real estate trends…
