Photographer Fights

My favorite point in every slapfight between photograhers over gear or technique is when one will go find the other's body of work. Then they decide that since the photos aren't the greatest thing to ever have been bestowed on the fine art world, that it proves they aren't qualified to talk about the gear or techique.

Fuck this tagging

This is not how you use film stock tags. #whichfilmisit

Deliver us from evil

When I was a kid and was taken to church every week, every time that The Lord's Prayer reached the "deliver us from evil" line I had a mental image of a Gremlin guarding a mailbox.


I drank a beer beofore 5pm. Guess my night has become just playing video games.


TODO comments in software programming are like the corpses of wishes.

Body in The Trunk

The moment when you realize that Elon Musk has the resources to murder someone, hide the body in a trunk, and then blast that trunk to Mars.

World Peace Via Advertisments

What if Kendall Jenner had delivered that Pepsi by driving up in a Dodge Ram? World Peace?

The Cloverfield Paradox

Cloverfield Paradox: Follows tradition by being nothing like any of the previous Cloverfield movies. Probably the weakest of the series, but also the weirdest and most whimsical. Fun. Reminded me a lot of movies from the early 1990s.

The worst I can do is say no.

Every listing on Craigslist is like "Make an offer. The worst I can do is say no."

Oh is it? Really? Even worse than say, getting so frustrated by the fifty-eighth God damned lowball offer that you falsely agree to the price, and then rage murder the buyer when they show up to pick up the item? IS THAT SOMEHOW NOT WORSE THAN SAYING NO? IS IT?!!

Box Problem

I've had this piece of darkroom gear I've been meaning to sell for years. Problem is nothing I order from Amazon ever comes in a large enough box to use for shipping it.

Mid Life Crisis

I think I got a gray whisker, but am not quite sure if it is gray or just really light blonde. Regardless, I think it is time to kick off a mid-life crisis!
As I've never done this before I'm going to need some help. I'm going to need some recommendations on top quality leather pants for starters. Gotta look good. I'll also want some recommendations on the kind of cars that young women find sexy these days. Also will take any leads on any of your single, hot 21-year-old friends. 8.5 or above pls.
Thanks in advance for helping me get through this.

I got a haircut.

I got a haircut yesterday. That means I get to spend the day at work being informed that I got a haircut.

Karmic High Fives

I think about the time I got offered payment in karmic high fives for a photo gig quite a bit. Seriously. Not even real high fives.


On YouTube's New Monetization Policy

This is why you should always live in some degree of panic if your entire income is derived from of other company's free to use platforms. While this change probably isn't going to take out anyone solely living off their YouTube revenue (I stand to lose about $/4 month), it serves as a reminder that if you don't own your own content on the web, it can be taken away or jerked within a heartbeat based on corporate whims.

Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, 6SO, is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated."

Right To Remain Silent

"What kind of right is the right to remain silent anyways?" #overheard #dlh

Mystery Eggs

Eggs: The great breakfast mystery food. I never know if I'm going to eat a french omelet or scrambled eggs until they hit the plate.

Self Checkout Lanes

I don't think that putting "Fast Checkout" on the signs for the self-checkout lanes at grocery stores is very accurate. No way the average shopper is faster than the seasoned cashier who had many months or years experience ringing up items.

But then again, I also don't think that a more accurate "Introverts and people who are worried that our cashiers are silently judging you based on what you are purchasing checkout" would fit on the sign either.

Oatmeal Skills

One of my great skills in life appears to be buying instant oatmeal packets at a rate that far exceeds how fast I consume them.

Pee Doggies

When I was first introduced to pierogi as a boy, I thought they were called "Pee Doggies" and was really upset because that is just a terrible term for something you are expected to eat.
