    They are going camping this weekend. I just got a text from him containing this gem:

    "What baffles me, is I'm more excited to hear that shutter snap more than camping itself. We'll be fishing so I know ill be getting some good perspectives with the river."

    He's got it baaaaaaaad.

    Oh, he's really hooked now.

    On Saturday night Future Son In Law (FSIL) processed his first roll of B&W in my bathroom. He and my daughter were back in town this weekend and he really wanted to process some film. So I showed him how to load the reel and let him practice a few times with his eyes closed, then he did a few in the darkbag and was all ready to go. So while the girls had some mother/daughter time we set up the bathroom. He was like a virgin on prom night, all giddy and nervous. Then when he opened the canister he got that look of seeing the miracle for the first time. It was a beautiful thing.

    Some of my students tell me film is cool.

    FSIL says my Minolta with the attached power winder "looks bad-ass." My daughter still refuses to recognize her dad's innate coolness.

    If I had a daughter (I do not), and her beau used the term "bad-ass", said beau would be forbidden from going within 500 yards of her.

    Judging by your comment and the term "beau" I'm guessing you're somewhere near 140 years old.

    They sell "Bad Ass Coffee" in a shopping center near where I live.

    My guess is your were hoping for a "gee willikers Mr XXXX, that camera is nifty" or else you watch too many Andy Hardy reruns.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Nope. Just something a bit more accurately expressive than "bad ass", a term I last heard used on TV to describe something. Actually, I've never heard a real live human use it, what does it mean?
    Is "Bad Ass Coffee" that stuff the critters eat and crap out?

    I was wondering if it was because he said "ass" or if it was because it was dated or corny or something.

    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.
