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.

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 http://www.infantstylenolsettlement.com/
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.
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.
sexual assault, famous authors
Isaac Asimov assaulted most likely hundreds of women: https://www.publicbooks.org/asimovs-empire-asimovs-wall/
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.
