    This is not a sermon...

    but I highly recommend to you that you get rid of your telivision set. You will find your artistic journey and the quality of your life greatly enriched.
    Try it!

    Gideyup! Definitely watch tv! And a VCR in case I feel like putting on an old movie. Helps pass the time and I like being entertained while spinning those silly BTZS tubes. And always with a bottle of wine opened. Darkroom work is tedious - it is the resulting negative and print that makes it worthwhile. CD player is in there too if there is nothing good on the telly. How anyone can function with complete silence and nothing else but the sloshing sounds of liquids in the darkroom for hours on end is a mystery to me. To each his own (whatever works).

    I tried that too, using Fox, but all I got was heat and no light.

    Actually, the few times I have tried to listen to PRI on the radio, I found it so distracting that I turned it off after half a print. Even Beethoven seems to throw my dodging and burning rhythms off, and I don't know whose metronome to follow. Give me quiet, please.
