    Criterion discs 50% off for the next 15 hours. https://www.criterion.com/shop/browse/list
  2. Big news. DPReview.com to close. The only hobby site I had a longer relationship with than ones on headphones. https://www.dpreview.com/news/5901145460/dpreview-com-to-close
  3. Hope it's an exciting/relaxing day.
  4. Farmer Wants a Wife, the American version (Hulu). "Real stories" between "big city" "girls" and "real, authentic" "farmers" (cowboys, close enough) "trying" to "find" "true love." Hopefully I have all those quotation marks correct. You know how geographically hodge-podgy all this is up front when they introduce Oklahoma with John Denver and "Almost heaven, West Virginia" (see cowboys). Yet, unless I'm getting way too soft, you still kinda feel sympathy for all the participants (except the host and I'm sure evil producers).
  5. Get ready for the real thing...
  6. I definitely thought that was vaporware.
  7. I should be listening to new music, but instead I'm stuck in a young-people-listening-to-old-songs warm musical swamp.
  8. I’m in the modern Voigtlander camp, but anyone considering the Light Lens Lab 35mm “Summicron” (or 50mm “Elcan”)? As for iOS apps, I’ve settled on the similarly named, but different, ProCamera (can turn down HDRish processing with ProRAW and supports 14 Pro MP) after getting caught in a billing loop with Halide (not allowed to make one time purchase, unwilling to pay for a subscription). Also Snapseed has recently picked up ProRAW editing capabilities.
  9. What is the coolest camera used by a Magnum photographer? It could be one of the early Leicas favored by Henri Cartier-Bresson and many others, or the Contax II rangefinder Robert Capa took to capture the D-Day landings on Omaha Beach. Perhaps it’s one of the large-format cameras still used by Alec Soth or Olivia Arthur; or maybe the bellowed majesty of Martin Parr’s Makina Plaubel 55mm fixed-lens camera, with which he shot The Last Resort. It could be any of those, but it’s not... https://www.magnumphotos.com/events/exhibitions/werner-bischof-in-color/
  10. Ohhhhhhh. That's even better than the Photo Fair coming up (Newark, CA 3/25/23). Or at this point should we all just get one of these? https://petapixel.com/2023/02/27/camera-takes-pictures-by-describing-what-it-sees-to-ai-image-generator/
  11. Plain English with Derek Thompson: The Science of How Music Hits Have Changed in the Last 60 Years Derek welcomes Chris Dalla Riva to discuss the subtle and not-so-subtle ways that music hits have changed since the 1960s Worth a listen.
  12. Let us know if 3 hours at the dealer or 3 hours at Avatar was better.
  13. Anyone shopping today? https://www.instagram.com/reel/CoILbpKMIl5/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
  14. 12 hours of Charlemagne: Father of Europe (Prime, AppleTV, Kanopy, Great Courses). Now I need a nap. Here’s another version that will save you 11 hours and 50 minutes.
  15. He died last year, right?
  16. Maybe https://www.viki.com/tv/35630c-because-this-is-my-first-life-series ?
