1. A few months ago my Dad bought this at a garage sale for $3. It’s an old Kodak Signet 35, which came into production in the 1950s. At first I thought it didn’t work. The shutter didn’t press down, you couldn’t see through the viewfinder, it just seemed more like a neat old paperweight to be completely honest.
Today however I figured I would check it out again. Maybe I missed something. Sure enough I did. After turning the rewind knob a few times, I popped open the back to find an old roll of Kodachrome 25 (ASA 25) sitting in it.
I don’t know how old the roll is (older than 2001, which is when Kodak stopped making Kodachrome 25), or how long it’s been sitting in there, but it was at the end of the roll in the camera, so if anything, there are pictures on it.
Until I can get it developed (which I don’t think I can, there aren’t any Kodachrome labs anymore) I can only guess as to what could be on it..

  2. I Wonder…

    I wonder if Lady Gaga’s fans (and I mean the hardcore ones) will ever fully realize that she basically uses them as free marketing. Every time she tweets “make this hashtag a tranding topic” or “retweet these lyrics of mine” or something similar — her “little monsters” (although I like to call them her “drones” because they would do anything for her if asked) jump on it and do as she wishes.

    This is what is called “getting free publicity” — and it works!

    So well in fact, her fannest of fans seemingly have no idea that they are just pawns in her game — a game in which her objective is to make more money.

    Aww, sorry “little monsters” — the Gaga was using you to get richer.

    (Then again, isn’t this the music industry in general now adays?)
