Contributions from Chuck D, Henry Rollins & Shepard Fairey

Glien Friedman, accomplished, respected and otherwise bomb-ass photographer of all things skate, hip-hop, punk and otherwise cool as hell, has found a hardcover casing to commemorate his work by way of Rizzoli publishing. That is, of course, in addition to the countless periodicals, magazines, fanzines and museum walls which have displayed his work. Being the […]

Celebrating 50 years of Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm

We met Heiko while visiting the five-star Hotel A-Rosa on the island of Sylt in the North Sea. Dubbed the “Hamptons of Germany”, Sylt is populated with the type of old European money that makes the New York seacoast look downright nouveau riche. We learned he was not only an excellent mixologist, but also a classically trained spiritist with […]

A high quality reproduction of the world's cheapest bong

Some might argue that Brad Pitt’s greatest role ever was in Fight Club, and while they’d almost be right they’d actually be wrong. Unarguably Pitt’s most epic performance was as Floyd in True Romance, Dick Ritchie’s ever so laconic stoner roommate. Everyone knew a guy like Floyd, and despite nearly being the cause of death […]

A Highlands matured exclusively in North American Oak

Well regarded Highlands distillery Glen Garioch offers a dated 1986 expression, a 25-year-old single malt scotch bottled back in 2011. That was when the distillery still peated a proportion of its malt, something which they no longer do once they temporarily shuttered their doors in the mid-1990’s. Matured exclusively in North American Oak, the end result is […]

Glen E. Friedman's photo tribute to Adam "MCA" Yauch

Wow — can you even imagine what it would’ve been like to be at the above party? I mean, The Beastie Boys clinking glasses with Sean Penn, David Lee Roth and Billy Idol? At the same time?! Jesus Christ I can’t even imagine the 1980s-level debauchery — you can almost see Billy Idol standing behind […]

Matured in the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks

Known best for their sherried single malts, the Scottish distillery GlenDronach has introduced a 21 Year Old “Parliament” whisky. Resembling a deep amber in appearance, the Highland scotch is ripe with autumnal fruits, most notably blackberries and red plums. The Parliament is matured in a combo of the finest Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks […]

Up now at San Francisco's 941 Geary Gallery

Among the punk, skateboarding and hip hop scenes of the 80s and 90s, there are few photographers that can stand alongside Glen E. Friedman. Many of the most famous images from these seminal scenes were captured by Friedman’s lens — from Fugazi and Beastie Boys to Public Enemy and Black Flag. Now an international traveling […]
