Modern Lynda Carter

Jaimie Alexander.

Hello! Wonder woman. Hell, I’d settle for Supergirl. Anything but another Marvel character. Am I right? Hell yeah!


Another stupid, bad written, show for NBC.  Who writes this shit?!  How do they get hired?  Please execute them, somebody…

I only left it on because it came on after The Office, which of course, was fantastic, and so was Community (Now there’s a great written show!).

I don’t understand how Whitney could last as long as it has, but entertaining shows like Roomates, Kyle XY, Greek, Make it or Break It, get sacked. I know, all those shows were ABC, not NBC, but why can’t NBC buy those awesome shows that Disney doesn’t want, the same thing happened with other shows, like Scrubs and CBS to name one.

When Roommates came out, I thought it belonged on NBC, it was like a modern Friends, if it had a chance on broadcast rather than cable, it would have been an amazing hit. It would, in fact, fit right between NBC hit The office and the new cop show. As it is, this is the first and last time I watch Whitney, and therefore I will never see the new cop show after it.

Goodbye E=MC2

We now have documented observations of faster than light travel. That’s right, not only did the neutrinos particles achieve light speed, it surpassed it by at least 50 nanoseconds (time adjusted for margin of error). No black holes, no deterioration of the particle into pure energy, no blah, blah, blah, whatever you thought would happen when mass approached the speed of light, it didn’t happen.

And, the European Organization for Nuclear Research’s (CERN’s) observation is not even the first! Scientists at Fermilab in Chicago observed the same thing back in 2007, but were so embarrassed at the implications, that they claimed their margin of error to great! CERN claims a margin of error at just 10 nanoseconds!

Well, I for one will be very happy to say goodbye to Einstein’s relativity theories. Too much today’s world, both in the realms of science, and the general public, embrace those theories as fact.

Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3

Go here to vote:

I have to say, I voted for Modern Warfare, because I’m a huge fan of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and I have high hopes for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

That being said, I have never played Battlefield 3, but another unrelated shooter titled Modern Combat: Domination is WAAAYYY better than the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series. So, it is possible that Battlefield 3 (whatever that is) is also a better game.

Shelf Life

I’m a master of all trades, and a jack of none.

I have noticed, all my interests have a shelf life. Last week it was cameras, and accessories, this week week it is motorcycles. I am saving up for one, and I plan to get rid of my pickup bed and build my own flatbed, so I’ll be learning welding in a couple months.

Picture of the equipment I used for todays E-6 processing.

Yesterday, I finally got around to trying my hand at film processing. I mixed up all the chemicals I had and processed 3 roles of ISO 200 negative film (C-41).

While doing so, my mom happened by (as I was in my Grandma’s kitchen) and read a little from the E-6 chemical instruction page I had sitting on the table. Apparently the chemicals only last a few days. This was a surprise to me, so I that evening, I looked it up with the aid of, and, as much as I could find, sure enough, the chemicals don’t last a week once opened, let alone mixed.

So, I finished up my role of Velvia 100 and processed it today. It was just a test role, as were the negatives I processed yesterday.

I strip of film hanging in the bathroom.

By looking at the image above, you may think it was under developed, but in fact, as a test role, I took several night shots. In fact, the pictures of the moon do appear to be over exposed. All the daylight stuff, look perfect. I can’t wait to scan them in to make sure.

Yesterdays negatives came out flawless too. Although, yesterday I had a problem with scum spots on the dried film. I washed them off last light with isopropyl alcohol, which is recommended by Kodak, and they came out great, though I think I scratched the film in a couple places before moving to a lens cleaning cloth.

Anyway, chalk that up to another lesson and skill-set learned.

Ain’t No Cure for the Rock and Roll

Check it out!

Image showing 8 Oak Ridge Boys record albums; The Oak Ridge Boys (KC32742), Y'all Come Back Saloon (DO2093), Room Service (AY1065), The Best Of the Oak Ridge Boys (Columbia 35302), Together (MCA-3220), Fancy Free (MCA-5209), Deliver (MCA-5455), American Made (MCA-5390)

So, here’s the story: I was busy drooling over various camera accessories for my previously mentioned recent acquired Canon Rebel T2, you know lenses, and filters, and whatever else that goes with an SLR. All the while, I was singing the same line from the Oak Ridge Boys’s American Made. You probably know the one I’m referring to.

"I got a Nikon camera, A Sony Color T.V."

So, I was in the mood for the song, but realized I did not have a single record or any kind of album for the Oak Ridge Boys. I have been a fan since I was a kid, thanks to my mom. I have even had them listed on my blogger profile among my favorites, since the first day I set up my Blogger account profile!

So, back to eBay (what did we ever do without that website!?) for the American Made album, record version preferred of course, and there I found it, and another that came with the record album Deliver. Then, I notice the same seller had three other auctions too, each one for two record albums! They were listed as buy it now and auction, so I placed a maximum bid at the buy it now price and watched. Over the days that followed, I remained not only the sole bidder, but the only person to even visit the auction pages, according to the counter at the bottom of the page.

Well, as irony would prevail, I still do not have a playable American Made album, as, out of the 8 records I received American Made was the only one that was in less than excellent condition with several skips. But, I don’t mind, eBay is still there and I already have the replacement saved in my "Music" list. Besides, the 1983 release of the record album "Deliver", which American Made came with, as I wrote earlier, was still factory sealed, in brand new condition!!! Sweet, my record player from the same year (I think) came the same way last year, when I bought that.  😀
