Electrical Outlet (August 2010)
Some years ago, I got into shooting black and white film and developing it and making prints myself.
I could go into my darkroom and work on one negative till I got a print just exactly the way I liked it, and suddenly it would be midnight.
Problem is, there were usually 20 frames on that roll of film that weren’t worth anything.
If you grew up in the Midwest, you may know the joy of walking up and down endless rows of corn, yanking the tassel out so the plant can have sex with the nice plant next row over.
Yes, I’m simplifying.
Anyway, this isn’t about sex. It’s about music.
I have a lot of gadgets.
Some would say, perhaps, that I have too many gadgets. I don’t listen to those people. I have just enough gadgets, until I get the next gadget, which I will certainly need, only I didn’t know I needed it until just now when I got it.
