Via Flickr: I’ve always wanted to try shooting film since my only experience was using disposable cameras (!!) I love the way photos turn out on film rangefinders so I decided to find one for my own. I went to several antique and thrift stores with no luck. Since I found this awesome ukelele last time at the SoWa Vintage Market in Boston, I came back this week with this one objective in mind. After an hour of search, I came across this camera, the Minolta Hi-Matic 7sII. My jaw dropped in awe as I checked out the camera, getting more and more excited as I tested the camera to be mechanically functional. I took this beauty home for $40, I steal I believe for a 1970’s camera in such great condition.
I haven’t shot with this camera yet. Right now I’m in the process of fixing the light leak seals and finding a battery for the auto exposure system. I’m super ecstatic that I found this camera. Once I get shooting and developing the film, I’ll make a post on this blog to show the process of how I cleaned and fixed my camera.
I want that shirt….
I want the dude, the shirt, the camera, and the SoWa Vintage Market.
I don’t know if the Daily What’s done this or not, but here you go:
The UC Berkeley Men’s Soccer Team recorded a lip sync video of Chris Brown’s “For Ur Love” during the bus ride to a game in Washington State. They have since been watched over 114,000 times and have had various facebook fan pages dedicated to them. They have been approached by Apple to create a series of similar videos.
Fabulous: almost impossible to believe; told about in fables. Matsufabulous: the sexiest creature to ever grace God’s green earth. We mere mortals dare not speak his name, for even to think it is to conjure images of a being too sexy and fabulous for our comprehension.
The Legend of Matsufab begins when he was invited to join Johnny’s & Associates without going through an audition, something only two people before him had done, immediately making him an elite and starting him on the fast track to being a high class summabitch.
He’s been a GQMF from a young age, long entrancing the women of Japan with his big, toothy, adorable grin, which has only gotten cuter with age. He’s the J-pop equivalent of that fish with the light on its head in “Finding Nemo.” Don’t lie: you started smiling and feeling fuzzy when you saw him smile, didn’t you? Yep, that’s how he gets you.
Sorry, I got so caught up in the sexy that I forgot to mention he sings and dances, too. I’m seriously, just watch. No, he’s not the best singer in the group, but when he winks and whispers “come closer” in your ear, are you really gonna be thinking that he’s kind of nasally when he sings? No, you’re not, you dumb bitch — you’re gonna be too busy screaming yourself hoarse begging him to take you now and fucking ravish you or some bullshit (and that’s assuming you can even formulate words at this point).
