Näkki Goranin’s recently published book “American Photobooth”, spurred this morning’s NY Times article about the history of the photobooth. Interestingly, the photobooth got its start in Times Square in 1926 and became a nationwide sensation. People have always held an affection toward the booth. Even Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino are collectors of the booth, according to the article. My love affair with the photobooth lies in the anthropological documentation of people and relationships.

Was it love at first snap? (more…)
An insider told Star Magazine that Steve-O was hospitalized Sunday at the Thalians Mental Health Center, specialized in crisis intervention, where he was put on 72-hour-hold, which has been extended to 14 days.
“Steve is stabilized on meds at this point,” the source told Star. “He was also treated for burns on his skin as if he had been putting cigarettes out on his own body.”
Seems his friends had enough of his antics and pulled a Survivor move and voted to call the cops.
They suspect that he maybe Bi-Polar. Dah.
Rick Kosick has been documenting Steve-O and the crew for year.
