A Pretty Plastic Piece Of Crap!

If I was rich (or more well off rather) I would love to buy this beautful seafoam green Diana camera (they sell it at Urban Outfitters). I realize how horribly trendy buying nostalgia items from Urban Outfitters is, but since I'm not rich I don't have to worry about actually making the purchase, ha. A while ago D and I were poking around at some pawn shops downtown and I (a person who knows very little about cameras) asked a guy if he had any Lomo cameras. He responded with an exasperated "Lomo is a Russian piece of crap! And I'm Russian! It's worthless! If you want to buy a piece of crap go on the Ebay!" Then he told me a few people looking like me had recently asked him for this type of camera. This man effectivley reduceded me to the cliche demographic I truly am. He was amazing.

This past week has been spent sick (again, really!) so there has been very little art making and too much tea drinking. I feel the cloud of illness dissapearing as we speak though, which will mean good things for fun projects once again.
