Mom, Dad, I have decided to become an existential concept.

I was thinking about it and maybe I should just shoot sunsets like sunny 16. If I pretend it’s full sun, the film will record something like what I see. Maybe. I got a shit ton of colour film, so it’s worth a try. 

It’s really annoying when I want to know about how to photograph something, like fireworks or a sunset or whatever and I google it and it’s all about digital shit, and I’m like, no, fuck your white balances and image stabilisation, just tell me what to do with 400 speed film. 

I know that film is archaic, but there are still plenty of people using it, there should be more online resources about it.

It’s funny how incandescent light bulbs have been a thing for so long. The tungsten filament light bulb was invented by Franjo Hanaman in 1904.

Their inefficiency has been so well known that it was actually exploited by using a light bulb to bake cakes in the Easy-Bake oven. 

The Easy-Bake oven was introduced in 1963, and fluorescent lighting was a relatively common thing since the 1920s, and spiral compact fluorescent lamps were invented in 1976, but GE didn’t want to invest the money to produce them on a large scale, so they didn’t become commercially available until 1995. 

This is all amazing. 

I looked at my bread dough and it got p big. I had left it in the oven with the light on, oven off, which just keeps it about 90 degrees or so in there, which is perfect for dough to proof. 

I stuck it in the fridge now and it’ll be ready to bake in the morning. 

I’m gonna bake on 4/20, but only the bread is gonna get baked. 

That’s Denmark Ave in the picture; the address is the big post office down there, which I was at. The fact that I was at the post office is why I thought I should include the ZIP code.

Our music was once divided into its proper forms…It was not permitted to exchange the melodic styles of these established forms and others. Knowledge and informed judgement penalized disobedience. There were no whistles, unmusical mob-noises, or clapping for applause. The rule was to listen silently and learn; boys, teachers, and the crowd were kept in order by threat of the stick… . But later, an unmusical anarchy was led by poets who had natural talent, but were ignorant of the laws of music…Through foolishness they deceived themselves into thinking that there was no right or wrong way in music, that it was to be judged good or bad by the pleasure it gave. By their works and their theories they infected the masses with the presumption to think themselves adequate judges. So our theatres, once silent, grew vocal, and aristocracy of music gave way to a pernicious theocracy…the criterion was not music, but a reputation for promiscuous cleverness and a spirit of law-breaking.

People have been complaining about new music literally forever. 

This is cool but also frightening.
