Your periodic reminder to take care of yourself and wear a mask. Be safe, I love you.

Hi all, just a reminder to please stay home and practice social distancing, please and thank you.

I love you and want you to be happy and healthy.

Here's a crazy idea: why don't we let the big giant mega-corporations bail us out for a change?

Quarantine day X: I'm still stuck inside. Going a skosh mad by myself.

Get you a partner that goes to Colombia *before the contagion* and brings you fresh Colombian fair trade coffee.

Hello masto friends, I hope you're all doing okay.

Stay healthy and happy if you can. If you can't, that's okay, you're doing your best.

Good night. I love you.

when you find out your daily lifestyle is actually called "quarantine"

Hey y'all, long time no Mastodon.

Wash your hands, stay 6 feet away from others, and avoid going out for anything non-essential.

Please. If not for yourself, then for the older generations that will suffer most.

Kobe Bryant, sexual assault mention 

It's a tragedy that 9 people, including Kobe Bryant and his daughter, died. Kobe Bryant was many things, including basketball star and rapist.

I want to say that's a complicated legacy, because he was inspirational to many. But to one woman, he was a rapist. And that's not complicated.

For my ally is the ardor, and a powerful ally it is.

get $15 from the makers of Tylenol 

so Tylenol charged extra for "infant's tylenol" when it was identical to "children's tylenol" and now they're settling. You can claim the refund for 7 bottles without proof of purchase, so make that claim and let's hurt big pharma a bit

Luckily I was working with a good friend, who was patient with me, but figuring out how to use the trigger correctly will be important for next time.

I'd like to consider adding a second speedlite to the setup (so I don't have to use the constant light) but I'm not sure I need that just yet.

Best part? The X-Pro trigger will work with my Nikon F100.

I got my "studio" lighting setup just about where I want it, at least for the near future. I did some headshots yesterday with a Godox X-Pro trigger, Godox V860II flash on a stand with a ProMaster umbrella, and a Westcott Basics constant light with an octobox for fill. I'm surprisingly happy with it, even though I really didn't have a great idea how to use the wireless system.

There's also the Alternative Photo Meetup at Cultivate on Sunday, at either 1 or 3. I'm definitely going to that, so hit me up if you're local to Ann Arbor/Ypsi and want to check out a possibly neat photo group.

Tonight is the Darkroom Detroit holiday party and print swap. I'm going to show up, I think. I have some prints (ordered from either MPix or The Darkroom lab, I forget which) to swap for some neat stuff.

Downside: it's in Detroit and will take me an hour to get there in rush hour traffic, so I'll spend more time driving than actually at the party.

I know I'm late to this party, but Computer World by Kraftwerk is a DAMN fine album. I especially enjoy Computer Love.

sexual assault, famous authors 

Isaac Asimov assaulted most likely hundreds of women:

I love his writing. But this behavior is also unacceptable. It doesn't mean I can't read his books, but it does mean I can't pretend he didn't violate women's bodies over and over again. It will spoil my enjoyment of his writing, anywhere from a little to entirely, and that's okay, because real women are more important than fictional worlds.
