A sunday. A girl. A bed. A dangerous love affair.

Once upon a time he said to me, “comrades, almost a love story” but I had too much pride and he was a jerk so I retrieved into my wong kar-wai, drowning myself in the human experience, telling myself I’m sophisticated enough to understand what life throws at me. But we were so young, so broke, my heart jumps when I remember the day we found your orphaned voice, I was there with you, roaming the streets, foul breath and foul mouth. The wind had clung to our skin that year pushing down on ourselves through oceans of gravitational pull, I felt the only way to free myself was throwing myself from the bridge of your city. It’s always your city, one way or another, and I’ve come to hate so many of your cities I’ll rather be a tree. Then one day I found myself watching “comrades” alone in an apartment I had no idea the amount of courage needed to let go of things that didn’t want to stay; I was always such a late bloomer. I had said, “you have to listen to this” pointing out the clefs as if some kind of oxygen trying to get you to feel the music the way I do insistently burrowed and deep. I failed to see your hesitant mind lingering around shallow waters. Years later you’ll email me about this moment that no longer exist, as I will read, regrettably, about a girl trying to forgive us for not being what we wanted the other to be.

M.L.K Jr, Letter from a Birmingham Jail; still true then and still true now.
Quote
I MUST make two honest confessions to you, my Christian and Jewish brothers. First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Councillor or the Ku Klux Klanner but the white moderate who is more devoted to order than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says, "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalisticl ly feels that he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time; and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstandi ng from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.

June 2007 - May 2017
When I found you, way back when, I couldn't get an invite. Now, it seems, I'll never get an invite. Your logo was lame. Your sidebar was useless. But your content--ugly and beautiful and elegant--was something to behold. An obsession for the lonely creative. Your UI was something countless sites would borrow to make millions--twitter, pinterest, facebook, tumblr-- but I wonder how many of these digital natives would know its lineage, you. So here's my love (letter) to the internet, and here's to you: thanks for starting all the share.

The colors are amazing in the XA, but the black and white film has its own merits too. Speaking of, I bought a roll of b&w film but misplaced it somewhere. Pity cuz it was so expensive.

If it is ilford then yes, they are expensive. However, just do what I do --throw all your film in a box and stick it in the fridge next to the kimchi and stuffed bitter melons but under the green tea mix.
