Kodak Red with the backup shot

in my last blog, I mentioned how I tried to use my Krasnogorsk FT-2 “Raskolnikov” camera to create a patterned film weave with the Hamilton College Chapel. I did create that, here’s the blog that proves same. But here’s the secret. I didn’t just bring Raskolnikov to campus. I also took Kodak Red for the…

Three Times for the Hamilton College Chapel Weave

I wouldn’t mind this project … if I didn’t have to attempt it THREE FREAKIN’ TIMES to even get a workable image. I shall explain. Off and on, I’ve been trying to create a “weave” of film strips to create a unified image. My plan was to use my super-ultra-wide Krasnogorsk FT-2 camera (“Raskolnikov”), along…

The NEBA Roast Beef – Mike’s Submarines Latch Hook Project, May 9 2022 progress

You know what? I have come to the realization that unless I take a couple of months off from everything AND all the yarn I order from Herrschners comes in when I need it, getting this hooked rug completed in time for the New York State Fair – at least for 2022 – ain’t happening.…

For the men who don’t support Roe v. Wade, here’s some news for you.

Let’s start off with a few basic facts. 100% of unwanted pregnancies are technically introduced by men. Women aren’t capable of accidentally impregnating themselves. So whether it’s a broken condom, failed birth control methods (whoever told you that “pulling out” actually works is full of shit), or copious amounts of judgment-clouding alcohol, something’s going to…

The one thing about Madison Cawthorn’s latest video that nobody’s talking about (or wants to openly say).

I’ve blogged about Madison Cawthorn before. He’s one of the Republican Troll Caucus Congressmen (the Troll Caucus including Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, Mo Brooks, Jim Jordan, etc.). Of late, there have been some recent photos of Cawthorn that have appeared on various social media platforms. The most recent one being this video…

Stare decisis and coathangers

At some point today, the U.S. Supreme Court will hand down a ruling in a case that will, for all intents and purposes, overturn the 1972 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. Essentially, today’s decision will be as oppressive and discriminatory as Plessy v. Ferguson. And just as dangerous. The ruling will bring back…
