for new yorkers

I don't know exactly if anyone reads the website before I start posting on a given day, which is in western time.

If so, though, then I beat you to it today!! You bitches! If you logged in upon getting to your job (wait, I'm being extremely presumptuous-- isn't ann retired?), then you get a blast of something new! ! to start your day!
Wilson had his lyrics written down on an order notepad like a waiter would use
for example, Wilson is now a solo artist! Great set Wilson. Actually, the set was your first one, and therefore a little rough around the edges. There was one song, though, that really showed some potential. LOVED IT. Big smiles in the audience. Thanks Wilson, please do it again. So so great.

Then one night there was a blood moon on the horizon. This also might be the first shot I've ever done with the car-going-fast-long-exposure-lazer effect. Maybe you didn't know, but Lazer is an acronym. Oh shit, I didn't actually know this, but it's not 'lazer,' it's 'laser':

'light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation'

Hi, please actually define and discuss the "simulated emission" part of laser. In my book, you either emit or you damned don't. Another sweet thing I learned today is that when shooting the moon (photographically speaking, not hearts speaking), shoot at f11 @ 1/(ISO of film). For example, shoot the moon @ f11 @ 1/100 of a second if shooting ISO 100 film. If your camera doesn't have 1/100 second exposure, get a refund. There is actually no 125 or 60 ISO film (I am undoubtedly wrong here). This information would have probably made the moon as red as it was this particular evening, rather than the regularish colored moon pictured. You know? Pink orange moon. Big whoop.

In other news that's surely not going to shock you, I cleaned up and tried to organize all my negatives from mainly the blogging era of my life. I've been taking lots and lots of film pictures lately. FOR YOU PEOPLE. I have a bookcase and the contents of it were starting to get out of control: that's where I put all my messes. I started with two shoe boxes full of mess and some scraps, and I ended up with two shoe boxes, a binder, and a mess. The mess is pictured here. The binder actually was a nice exercise in going through the old pics and trying to get everything in order. Now, when I think "I wish I could find that negative from I think albequerque to print it," I won't be able to find it. That was one roll that is lost, apparently. I do like that picture though.

Did you know that tonight was my last night of school for summer school? Did you also know that I have a full bar at my house? I really just have two greyhounds and I get all verbose.
