Death of Kodachrome
Along with last week’s deaths, was the announcement by Kodak that it is discontinuing Kodachrome film. They offer this page, to remember the film James Danzinger has this to say Frank found this And I offer this and this -a
This is the MJ I choose to remember. Poor Michael, you were pretty messed up. -J ps- yo, a, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Will get back to it soon, as I have some cool things to show ya.

Im not sure if it is internet oversaturation, or if the world has just gotten boring, but it has become a rare thing that I find a styled room I like. Moved in to replace the styled room is the “room as it is,” of Apartamento and The Selby, both of which I feel represent this really parisian style of living, with edited, well worn things, that are stylish but not styled, and whose...
SO J came to visit this weekend and we had a whole lot of fun. Some would say way too much fun. At one point though e were walking around (I think we were leaving the hobby store after buying model rocket kits on our way to shoot rockets off my roof with my landlord) and she made a prediction, which I think this morning’s Refinery29 post deems a highly reasonable. J predicts that next...
Please, for the love of christ, stop painting everything high gloss white. I know I said how cool Koosuke’s living room was, but this shit is over the top. Here, and all these. STOP.

Style Copy Cat
Not a surprise to anyone who knows me at all, but I love clothes. A lot. But not because I love labels or anything like that, I just like to dress up and try weird things, and try interesting things. I currently work in a shopping district full of awesome boutiques where I cant afford anything at all but my coworkers and I all love to run around and try on fun things when work gets too...
lepanopticon: Is it August yet? ps: (from J). I don’t really know how I feel about this promo. It seems a little ACTION PACKED, like something I would expect for the next season of Lost. Let’s just hope it’s to drum up some interest in the season as a whole, not the direction the show is going in. -J
So I work at this gallery that makes its money by having events for rich people there (corporate parties and weddings mostly). And about a month ago there was this corporate event and the client brought in this screen technology that was basically like a beta version of the giant screen from the Minority Report. You controlled the screen by moving your hands in front of the screen using giant...

I like these, not because I really like them, but instead I like the idea of taking the zodiac signs and representing them based on their qualities, you know? I just love the gradient buns and the shoulders of black lace. From here. -a

I love Contact. Dialogue that sounds like it knows what it’s doing, smart lady scientist pursued by dumb hot man, travel around the universe. What more could you want? And don’t whine about that bit with the dad at the end. I like it. It’s also a slick film. The thing has barely aged at all, mainly due to the quiet use of CGI. Versus other sci-fi films made in the...
I spent all this time making a flash header for my stupid site (the thing is painfully broken) only to realize, when finished, it was an exact rip-off of the Juno poster. Ugh. -J

Best Titles for Cop Shows Set in B'more
Homicide: Life on the Street. Not a lot of people know this show. Law and Order was a spin off, The Wire was based around the same book to inspire Homicide, and in my mind it wins as best B’more Cop Show. To those who love The Wire I describe Homicide as it’s more “actorly” brother. It’s also got the better title sequence. -J While...
Notes on Dark
While there may be Notes on Camp I’m not sure if anything has been set down about the aesthetics of black/dark humor. When writing yesterday I found myself wary of including ‘morbid’ on this list as I don’t want to stray into purely grotesque or crude humor. Well-known examples like M*A*S*H, Dr. Strangelove or Ghastly Crumb Tinnies all seem to walk the line between the hilarious and...
Today, while having afternoon drinks with my grandma, I mentioned a particular trait my family shares for morbid humor. My grandmother had just made a joke about not owning her house for much longer. Which (oddly?) made me think of the first tattoo I ever got, a small Ed Gorey drawing on my ankle. In a weird way it stands for my whole family, though at the time it was just something I thought...
My aunt, the purveyor of all things factoid, recently mentioned that her old work had once memo-ed that employees were no longer to refer to xeroxing as “xeroxing” but instead as “copying.” It seems that Xerox was no longer with people using their company name as a catch-all. Indeed I have heard that Hoover vacuums are non-too-pleased about the Brits using the name to...
