Paul Newman passed away on Friday at his farmhouse in Westport, CT. Aside from being a racing nut in the best possible way, Paul gave away close to a quarter of a billion dollars to charity through his Newman’s Own brand. I don’t like eulogies much but anyone who becomes as famous as Paul did is prone to inflating their sense of importance in the world. He was, by all accounts, one of the most down to earth people ever.

In my book, anyone who owns a racing team, places on the podium at LeMans, stars in “Cool Hand Luke”, gives away hundreds of millions of dollars to charity, and lands on Nixon’s enemies list (among many, many other accomplishments) is thereby unimpeachable.

New Book Radio Silence

Filed under: Hardcore,Photo — admin @ 8:02 pm

A book called “Radio Silence” just came out. It was done by Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo. It covers all sorts of hardcore which has now become mythology. I might also add that it is a great antidote to the lunkheadedness of much of what has been written of hardcore over the years. It’s purty to look at as well.

Buy one, or more.

There are release parties and gallery celebrations in the works all over the place.
