    Lady Gaga and Polaroid ?

    I have no idea what to make of this tidbit but presuming it's not connected in any way to the Impossible Project. I like what she says about some things though. Someone should send her some film when the IP comes to life

    You could discern some actual meaning there? It sounded like marketing babble.

    It is difficult to say. It can be a buzz that will be dead in 6 months, or may be it can bring something new to the surface. Anyways, what is important, is that peoples will talk about polaroid and instant films for a while, and this, can never be negative... (negative, without playing with words :-) )
    - Note to self: Next time processing a film, take notice of the shape of the beer bottle and the shape of the fixer bottle, and note the differences. -

    probably a "can't be mentioned camera technology" and built in printer idea ? Don't think it has anything to do with the Impossible Project but I could be wrong. Regardless, if she can get people jazzed about instant photography, perhaps there'll be some migration to traditional instant.

    The owners of the Polaroid name have nothing to do with photography afaik.

    I read recently that a former Polaroid plant is being used to coat flexible photovoltaic cells.

    Only thing Lady Gaga goo goo or whatever needs is to go the he** away! And you are right about the fact that the new masters of Polaroid know little to nothing about photography, they are a hedge fund and IP firm if I remember correctly.

    They're making more cameras for the IP. Give them a break. They can only do so many analog photography related projects in a decade.
