For Cliven Bundy: How to pick cotton

This is a video of a very old African-American gentleman demonstrating how to pick cotton.

Calling Geraldo Rivera: millions of E.T. game cartridges to be dug up

http://www.elpasotimes.com/news/ci_25636653/diggers-ready-unearth-ataris-e-t-games-new?source=rss

Hidden for three decades in a landfill deep in the New Mexico desert lie thousands of Atari cartridges from what is widely believed to be worst video game ever made -- or so the urban legend goes.

A group of filmmakers hopes to get to the bottom of the mystery Saturday by digging up the concrete-covered landfill in search of up to a million discarded copies of "E.T. The Extraterrestrial" that the game's maker wanted to hide forever. The game and its contribution to the demise of Atari have been the source of fascination for video game enthusiasts for 30 years, and the search for the cartridges will be featured in an upcoming documentary about the biggest video game company of the early '80s.


Leading employment-related WTF of the year

I am sitting in front of the downtown Seattle Sears, which is both the oldest on the West Coast and being closed by Crazy Eddie because he's incompetent.

There are three doors. Two of them have Going Out of Business signs. The third has a Now Hiring sign.

Now hiring to do WHAT? Sweep the floor after all the stock is gone?

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?

Sadly, the Mariners will not reach the heights of their neighbor.

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.
