You’ll see that my blog subtitle is photography for the people. Now why choose something so well boring. Because nowadays photography is for the rich guys. I was looking yesterday at two photoblogs. One is some kid I met while working for a magazine and he’s a total dick head and the other I have no idea who he is but I don’t like him either. What do they have in common? Decent photos. Mind you I didn’t say amazing photos or even good photos since one simply edits his photos in picasa (making them look like crap enlarged) and the other one has only little knowledge regarding editing some subjects. Sure they both make okay images. But what’s the catch? Money. They’ve got expensive cameras but most of all, they’ve got the ability to travel… One goes to the States more often than I go to school (ok, that one’s easy to beat) and the other one has a dirt motorbike and just travels the country whenever he wants. They have time to post-process and they can take photos and be encouraged for it. On the other hand there’s say me, who have an unpaid job as a photographer and have to hide it from my folks because they think photography sucks. I know you might believe this is bitching from just another kid who does nothing all day long and you may be right but look at the situation like this: if you’re broke and have nowhere to go all you can do is take photos of what you have close to you. And that gets boring after a while.

Money makes the world go ’round. Thing is that kid has money for special glass. Say fisheye. And tele. And there’s no doubt in my mind that with a little bit of decent knowledge you can get more from a 20D than from an entry-level. Also, editing is hell on my 1.8ghz athlon. So basically if I had to make a list of what I need it would be: wide lens, teleconverter, polarizers and UV filters, flash, backdrops, lightbox, studio lights, hotshoe pc socket, a core2duo computer with at least 2gb of ram, LCD screen, memory cards, and some way to get around the city. So it would pretty much need about 5000$ minimum. And right now all I have is 25cents…

No more bullshit in blogs…

September 16, 2006

You know I just realised most blog posts sound like this:

“OMFG dude today was so cool. like this morning after i went to mike’s place we met shirley and we totally hung out at radisco’s. and you know how that is. man i wish i had bill gates’ money… that’d be rad! oh and i feel so alone now like you know we’re travellers in this boat man”

…and so on. Which is total bullshit if you ask me. Not only do we not know (or fuckin care) who mike and shirley are but we have no idea what radisco’s is. Or what in God’s name one can do there… and then starts the bitching, i chose to exemplify money here, but you can choose your pick from over 100 different cliches from “why can’t i be that thin?” to “dude why doesn’t that chick wanna do me?”. The answer is easy, because you’re fuckin retards writing blogs all day. Fuckin get outta here, go do something interesting. And of course not bullshit blog is worth even mentioning unless it contains a daily dose of shitcan philosophy. Be it life, the universe or god himself, they always find new ways to say absolutely fuckin nothing…

So I decided to start my own blog with zero tolerance to that shit. Besides the fact that i do want to examine other blogs and find all that crap, i’d like to give an example of how a blog should sound:

Yahoo is moronic; today i was searching for a way to sell my stuff on the street (google is unreachable until my isp’s isp figures a way out to it, i recommend sticking a lan wire up their ass and see if they reach google that way) and what it returned was “gay laws, drugs being sold on the street, and children killing you on the street with…”. Like how fucked up is that…? what is this, psycho killing for dummies?

Now that’s my kind of a reader’s digest. Oh, and smileys. Jesus you people use a lot of smileys, ranging from simpleĀ x andĀ o signs to complex representations of plants and animals. (like 3:-0 for a cow and @>-‘- for a rose). With chat clients and websites all accepting photos and all that would’t it be easier to send a picture of a cow instead. Or fucking say “you’re a cow michelle” not a wimpy “michelle you’re a 3:-0”. What the fuck is it? Retarded clown day?…

With that i end my daily broadcast and insert a little plug for all the ladies out there who have pimped out myspace or hi5 accounts and have only understood from my post the words fuck shit and maybe the photo (which apparently i can’t post right now). Until next time, stay not so fucked up will you.
