Ever seen those "if 10% is good enough for Jesus..." bumper stickers?

My brother spouts that crap all the time, so I did his taxes for him. Truck drivers have lots of deductions available to them and he uses them all.

Long story short: him paying 10 percent to the IRS would be a 600 percent tax increase.

Could Benghazi have been the GOP's 2012 October Surprise?

Where will you be on June 4?

This is the 40th Anniversary of Ten Cent Beer Night, one of the things that made Cleveland famous.

The worst part: if they fire you for whatever reason, you can't work in another restaurant or open a restaurant of your own within a 50-mile radius of Scottsdale, Ariz., for a full year.

I found a job posting that's just MADE for a DUer...

The Planned Parenthood Spokane Health Center is seeking a full-time Help Desk technician. I'd apply for it myself but my IT background is in graphic arts equipment, Macintosh and mainframes, and they want a Windows person.

You need two years' experience in IT support in a Windows environment.

Opening Day! How's your team going to do this year?

Some work off my new camera

I got a new camera in January. I had to put some film through it to make sure it works before I take it to Seattle in April, because I don't want to take an untested camera and I don't want to also take my F4. I finally got good enough sky to use it...

Technicals:
Body: Mamiya 645 Pro TL with Automatic Exposure prism finder and motor drive
Film format: 6 x 4.5 cm on 120 film (15 shots per roll)
Lens: Mamiya 105-210mm "ultra low dispersion"
Film: Kodak Ektar 100. I've been really happy with it in 35mm, and it also works nicely in 120.
Scanner: Epson V500 with VueScan


Coeur d'Alene Lake, from the Boardwalk. This was actually made in near-darkness with no meter reading. I used f/22 aperture and held the shutter open 30 seconds on the Bulb setting.


Not sure where this is, but it came out okay. Not real fond of my scanner right now, tho...


This would probably look better with duct tape...


Big negatives for big runoff.


...big rocks.


...and big guns.

It works well enough for me.

The far right's use of the Gadsden flag predates the tea party

I bought a new used medium-format camera right after New Year's. I send the film to Kansas for processing because it's less expensive to do that and Dwayne's Photo is the best C-41 lab in America. I also had a roll of film I shot at the 2003 antiwar protest in Fayettenam, NC, so I added it to the order. (I have no idea why I kept this film unprocessed for that long.)

This picture was on the roll from 2003. :



Declared teabaggers didn't exist in 2003, but right wingers were using the symbols associated with modern-day teabaggers then.

14-year-old boy kills father, brother

Don't read this unless you have a very strong stomach. This shit is fucked up to extremes.
