Photographer Glen E. Friedman is best known for iconic images that captured the roots of three truly indigenous American pop cultures: skateboarding, American hardcore, and hip hop. Starting tonight, you can see all three represented at Shepard Fairey's (relatively new) gallery, Subliminal Projects, over in the Silverlake/Echo Park area of Los Angeles. Sean Bonner, who has worked with both Shep and Glen (and exhibited their work at a gallery he co-owned), says:
[Glen's] retrospective exhibition Idealist Propaganda will open at Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects gallery. The gallery is located at 1331 W Sunset Blvd and the opening is at 8PM. It’s going to packed so I suggest getting there earlier rather than later if you can. I was there last night and got a sneak preview (as well as to help film and upcoming episode of BoingBoingTV about the show) and it’s breathtaking. Trust me, you don’t want to miss seeing all these photos in person.
I second that, and if anyone wants to make me really happy this holiday? Buy me like one of every print there,
please. I cannot WAIT to share the BBtv episode(s) with you all. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll stop there. But they're gonna be pretty special, and it was an honor and a total kick to tape them (thanks again, Glen, Shepard, and Sean).

Also: Several books of Glen E. Friedman's photography are available, and make killer holiday gifts.
PHOTO: Joseph "DJ Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels, and Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell, collectively known as RUN-DMC. Photographed by Glen E. Friedman in 1985. This image is in the Idealist show, and it's one of my favorites. Mizell was murdered in 2002. To date no one has been prosecuted for his death, despite much evidence and a room full of eyewitnesses.
What’s not to like about this 12-in-1 Stanley Multitool, especially when it costs just $8 on Amazon? I grabbed a couple to have around the house so I don’t need to get my toolbox from the garage for minor fix-it tasks.
I didn’t think an IoT voice assistant was for me, but at $50 I couldn’t resist the Amazon Echo Dot. I’m finding Alexa to be handy for lots of little things. Amazon’s hockey puck like Echo Dot gives you all the utility of their personal assistant Alexa at pretty low price. I felt it wouldn’t […]
Andrew Holzschuh took a photo of his shoes every day as he hiked the Pacific Coast Trail, then made a fun timelapse of his shoes’ daily wear and tear. Many hikers forgo hiking boots for trail runners on a well-marked trail like this. Eagle-eyed viewers who know the trail picked up on a detour, to […]

The Atmos R2 may be bigger than the brand’s previously-released vapes, but we argue that in this case it’s definitely a good thing. A bigger heating chamber means more room for packing it full. And the bigger battery means longer, more fulfilling vape sessions. In fact, you can use the Atmos R2 for up to about 25 […]
