Why, oh why, MLA???

Ok why is the MLA having a steampunk panel? The steampunk crowd's appropriation of a
perjorative-geek-reinforces it and is wearisome just like the other anti-intellectuals are!!!
MLA is still the most efficient documentation method so hooray for them for that!!!!

Someone else who uses film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From what the article says, their kids like looking at the pics now but I know they'll value 'em more later, especially if they have kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pics are great genealogical treasures!!!!!!!!!
"While most parents rely on digital cameras to take as many photos as quickly as possible without disrupting their kids, Geoff has stuck with film, even scouring flea markets and garage sales to find the vintage cameras he favors. “I prefer the challenge of getting it right with film,” Geoff says. “With digital you take 1,000 pictures of nothing.”"

"1,000 pictures of nothing"--that's a great description!!!!!!

The only place I know of to get good film development is Bedford Camera & Video . . . the closest one to me, that I know of, is six hours away but my folks and I are generally there a couple of times a year to visit family so next time we're visiting them I'll have a few rolls of film to develop! But the wait will be worth it!!!

Too Complicated

Some things are just too complicated and most people don't care.
