I just found my first 35mm film camera, a Canonet 28. My parents gave it to me when I was about 10 years old. I cleaned it and it still works. I think I need to find some b&w film and wander around NYC.
My friend opened a foley studio in Peekskill, NY. Every ambient sound you hear is created by the foley artist. Simple things like tinkling glass or foot steps. Well he has quite a collection of shoes. The women’s heels have to hurt.
iTunes Removes Awful Plastic Surgery App For Tweens
A new game offered in the Google and iTunes stores caused quite the ruckus after its release last week, and for good reason. The free app, named “Plastic Surgery & Plastic Doctor & Plastic Hospital Office for Barbie Version,” teaches girls how to perform liposuction on a hapless large blonde woman.
The game description read:
"This unfortunate girl has so much extra weight that no diet can help her. In our clinic she can go through a surgery called liposuction that will make her slim and beautiful. We’ll need to make small cuts on problem areas and suck out the extra fat. Will you operate on her, doctor?"
After Everyday Sexism called them out, iTunes removed the app. Good riddance.
I had taken this photo at Garvan Woodlands Garden in Hot Springs, AR. Every year they have a wonderful Christmas lights display. I made sure I got there my first night because they had ice storms that lasted for my entire visit. If you ever visit the area during the Christmas season, make sure you take the time to visit.
