    Given that the word Arse or Ass has so many connotations and also the tone in which it delivered and the contrast it delivers in comparison to the surrounding conversation, indicates only one thing to me..it is a word that can be easily embraced by film users everywhere, who better understands tones and contrasts ?

    Now when I consider an ass..i think soft tonal changes, moderate contrast ................. wanders off into distance

    Sorry to change the topic off of arse , but does anyone know if Kodak makes the gold 100/200 in 120 anymore? I know they did, and have seen it on ebay before, but have never shot it.

    I'm getting hooked on the stuff(1. b/c its damn cheap, and secondly, nice color rendition IMO). just would like the chance to put some through my rz if its still available, or if anyone has any I could try
