I’m old.
Posted on February 23rd, 2016 @ 5:43 pm

I just saw this ad a few days ago. Yes I made me feel old. I’m not that old, really. I still feel like a kid listening to that song when it was new in the States.

What is my job?
Posted on February 18th, 2016 @ 10:28 pm

When people ask me what my job is, it’s hard to explain it in non-technical terms. Sometimes, I explain it’s working with databases. However, sometimes, I throw out transpondster.

I was asked this question tonight. To explain it, I played this Superfriends meet Friends video. This one is so hilarious. The person that did this was a genius.

Pretty Certain Romance Is Dead
Posted on February 18th, 2016 @ 5:55 pm

Romance has be replaced by horndogs thinking anyone looking for a relationship online is a sex bot. Dating sites are like a catalog for sexual escapes.

In a follow-up to my Is Romance Dead? post, here are a few more messages I’ve gotten SINCE that post:

IMG_5378

So besides not able to use the contraction “You’re”, this idiot thinks I’m yummy.  I’m not an ice cream cone!

IMG_5379

Amazing Race guy is back!  He’s moved into CREEPY now!

IMG_5390

Another person that can’t conjugate the correct form of “YOU ARE,” nor know how to develop the correct contraction for this verb phrase.  He then proceeded to send me his number.  I’m not going to reply but I think 912-382-5968 or 912-382-5633 would have been appropriate answers.  At least that was what was floating in my brain.

Hey guy sent another message.  So dense or so desperate or just praying someone takes a bite.  I don’t know which.

Dudes, get it through to your little brains and let your topmost organ work.  Would you want your daughter to get messages like this?  If your reply is you’d go hunt down the guy that sent your daughter this message, THEN DON’T SEND THE MESSAGE!

You get mad at chicks for not answering, but when this is what we get, then we don’t want to answer.  We aren’t a piece of meat. I rather be alone than be some guy’s choice of sexcapde.

Living West of the Savannah River
Posted on February 17th, 2016 @ 7:39 pm

For a majority of my life, I have lived within miles of the Savannah, west of it. Primary time, like it is now, is always fun.

So far, watching the 7 PM news:

Trump attacking Cruz.

Let’s not forget Cruz attacking Trump:

Because parts of SC is within the viewing areas of Augusta and Savannah, this is why I see a lot of these ads.

Is Romance Dead?
Posted on February 14th, 2016 @ 9:50 am

I’ll admit, I have a profile on a few dating sites. You never know where you’ll meet the one.  However, I seem to attract people that I’m not attracted to.  Then to boot, some of the messages I get from these guys creep me out.

For Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share the ones that creep me out or just leave my jaw dropping on the desk. Click on the image to read it in full.

okc1

Lets cuddle and watch the amazing race ” – No, I’m not going to cuddle with a complete stranger.

okc2
Your profile picture looks great,I cherish it so much, well life is all about getting to know each other, so i believe we can start knowing gradually,i love meeting special friends with good understanding.” – You don’t know me.  I doubt you cherish it.  This one gave me the Nigerian prince scam.

okc4

This guy just called me stuck up and then couldn’t take the hint I’m not going to reply.  If no one answers you, move on.  Just saying “Hey” and leaving it at that just doesn’t interest me.

okc6

I went through your profiles and your picture got blood jumping around in my veins like a ball on a roller coaster” – This one had the Nigerian vibe, too.

okc7

The thing about this one that got to me was the guy was on the other side of the world AND old enough to be my father.

okc8

I am a great guy I would never lie to you cheat on you or hurt you I would never go behind your back[…]” – Whoa there buddy!  You don’t know me.  Also, please, for the sake of EVERYONE out there, learn what a run-on sentence is.

okc9

Again, another guy hoping and praying I’m an easy lay.

pof1

And then this one!

These kind of message actually make me glad at times I’m single.  Guys, if you want to know why some women reject you, don’t just call it the “nice guys finish last” card. I see it more as a “guys are creeps and don’t know how to speak to a gal without making her feel like she has scum on her” card.

Holga’s Dead.
Posted on February 2nd, 2016 @ 7:08 pm

Just as I finally see the fun and results of the Holga camera, I find out the Holga is no longer in production. No wonder ordering a replacement digital camera Holga lens and the replacement Holga electronic flash 12mfc cost more than when I ordered them the first time.

I felt sad when I heard the discontinued Advanced Photo System film.  For Christmas 1996, my mother got me an Advantix camera.  It wasn’t much.  Just your basic one.  She has a fancier camera when she went APS as well.  For a while, I had misplaced it. She also found buying disposable cameras cheaper than buying new APS film.  I had finally found hers and mine and now I can’t use them, unless I can find a way to make my own.  I loved the ease of such film.  Just popped it in. I knew I couldn’t ruin the film.  I also loved that I could reorder a print at a different size than when I took the photo.  If I could only have been able to afford the film when I was younger.

Here is such a photo I took with my APS camera:
On the Cross Sound Ferry between Orient, NY and New London, CT

It’s from 1999. I was with some of my Richard Marx pals on the Cross Sound Ferry between Orient, NY and New London, CT. Not the best photo, but it’s mine.

Seeing Holga going the way of APS, yes, it hurts.  I think part of the appeal returning to film and toy cameras, is that there is an old nostalgia to it all.  It is the waiting period?  Is it the lack of instant results? It is the effects that digitals can’t produce?  I think it’s all.  Today, I ordered a second Holga.  If I can find my old Holga flash, then I will have to complete Holgas.  Maybe Lomography can get the Holga trademarks and specs and bring it back to life.

And speaking of Lomography, I was able to get my La Sardina working, but barely.  It takes a lot of strength and tried to get the film to advance.  It’s not easy.  It’s going to take me a bit to get that roll of film completed.  I also ordered a Disderi Robot Style 3 Lenses Camera.  Just another toy camera for my collection.
