    I am still not quite sure what it means. I guess I myself am considered a nerd. Another of these terms...

    EDIT: does Hippie come from being hip?
    Yes.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Ah, Stan Freberg! In these debased times we have great need of you, along with Bob and Ray, and George Carlin, and ... Bob Newhart, and many, many other gentle comics who so expertly skewered the absurdities of daily existence. Chad Mitchell Trio, anyone?

    To be blunt about it, anything that causes people to buy film is a good thing, as increased volumes means that it worth keeping the machines alive. Otherwise you might just have 3 makers of black and white film and spend 20 bucks a roll for it. The only disappointment is that the great surge of cheep expired film is gone, and what is left people think is golden. But that is life.

    Bob Newhart is alive and well and has been making occasional appearances on The Big Bang Theory.

    Well, had been. Bob Newhart is very much alive, but his character on The Big Bang Theory (Pro. Proton) has died.

    Stan Freberg is still alive too.

    As a bearded 19-year-old who is frequently referred to as a hipster because he enjoys shooting film and listening to non-mainstream music, lomography somewhat worries me. I'm all for people shooting more film, and, optimistically, I'd love to see it make a comeback. However, while many of the images that I see other young film photographers producing look cool, there doesn't seem to be much thought that goes into making their images. They treat their holgas like their smart phones. They seem to snap snap snap away, and don't really think about the end result, which goes against most of the reason of why I'm starting to love shooting film. While there is nothing wrong with experimenting around, I think it's important that we (people my age) slow down and think about how we make our images.

    My biggest concern is that analog will become the new digital, and by that I mean shooting without much thought. Though I doubt it will ever go that far.

    If you are really interested in seeing the kinds of images that lomo hipsters are shooting, I suggest that you head to lomography's tumblr: http://lomographicsociety.tumblr.com/

    Bob himself is alive and has been making those appearances. The character's fate isn't of much consequence.
