1. DEBUNKING UPDATE

    Many photos and video being circulated of what people believe to be the fertilizer plant explosion near Waco, Texas. 

    Some of them, however, are NOT ACCURATE.

    This video, for example, says it’s of the plant in question. 
    In reality, it’s video of the PEPCON disaster in 1988. [VIDEO]

    This photo:

    Is also NOT of the fertilizer plant explosion.

    It’s actually a photo of the 2008 Big Spring refinery explosion.

    So again, BEWARE.

  15. This took a while.
Scanned a bunch of film negatives my Dad shot in the 1970s when he lived in Alberta. A lot of them look like the one on the left. A few scans after this I decided “fuck it” and I turned Digital ICE on the scanner so I wouldn’t have to retouch them for years on end.
