That Stranger Things’s last season was a bit of a letdown has nothing to do with it. But this strange occurance does:
I’m hearing great things about analogue photography’s making a comeback but those youngster hipsters have no clue what a fukn darkroom is???
Hmm, and this comes at a time when I just had someone clearing out our garage and I saw them schlepping out two of my old enlargers. Spent countless hours with them during my bohemian artist 20s. In my darkroom. It was my happy place. I even made some money with my laboratory skillz. But mostly just created personal memories. At the newspaper we had two laboratory ladies doing that work for us, while we were roaming the city on appointment. Really, I won’t need those apparatuses anymore, probably never again in my life. But still, it kinda hurts a little to see the old stuff being forgotten so fast, carelessly discarded from our shared cultural experience.
And you fukkers expect me to learn how to finger gesture on a friggin small screen to do weird, completely unrelated things on a … a what? … a telephone?
Not gonna happen.
