I would like 27 boxes of any combination of Impossible film, Fuji Astia 120/135 (recently discontinued, but still available), Fuji Neopan 1600 135 (also discontinued, not sure if it’s available. If it is, it’s only online), Kodak Portra or Ektar 120, Rollie infrared 120/135.
Or a Hasselblad 80mm C/T* (it doesn’t need to have the coating, I’m just desperate for the focal length and aperture. And it can be ugly as long as the shutter speeds are either accurate or documented.
27 packs of any of those films averages out to be approximately the same price as that lens. So… You decide. I don’t know who “you” is anyway, so don’t feel obligated. Just making my birthday wish “out loud.”
Thanks for enduring my foreign language of photographese.
I don’t think many of us realize just how much we’re missing in the world. I stumbled upon this video of opening credits to a movie called EVA that was made in Spain and being distributed by Paramount.
Will someone please check this out out and acknowledge its existence?
I can’t believe America still won’t invest in this kind of imagination and technology. Nightwatch and Daywatch are prime examples of superior conceptual CGImaging, and never got much popularity in the states. And they came out in 2004 and 2006 (respectively)!
And please be sure to watch the two teaser trailers on the main website (I can’t find them anywhere else online or I’d embed them here).
Again, please let me know you’ve watched them. This type of thing has happened to me before where I’ve witnessed something phenomenal happening in the world and nobody knows what the fuck I’m talking about, nor ever finds out because either I didn’t expect me to be the only one with eyes open, or because American companies like Paramount keep beautiful shit like this secret from us idiots that fork over millions to perpetuate MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE and TOMB RAIDER. Fuck you, Paramount.
Thank you, Tumblrs, for calming me down about it.
edit: wow, nobody? At least tell me I’m delusional.
I’ve given up on the Halloween Marathon. Its purpose was to inspire holiday spirit and attempt to get Portlanders to culture themselves. Have you ever tried to heard cats? This city is doomed. I am doomed here. I don’t like high-wasted jeans, expensive designer grocery stores, smoking cigarettes, eating a strict organic diet (Portlanders love organicism, yet they love smoking cigarettes; this is the kind of logic I have to deal with ever day), and I don’t like to completely mismatch my clothes.
I don’t belong here. Too proud to assimilate, too broke to get out. I hope FAFSA doesn’t disappoint or I might hang myself with my bicycle chain.
That last bit was a joke, Person Who Doesn’t Get Dry Humor. Ah yes, Portlanders also don’t get dry humor or gross generalizations to make a point. Fuuuuuuuck this place.
