Anime on laserdisc.

In the olden days, if you wanted to watch subtitled Japanese cartoons, someone would hook their laserdisc player up to an Amiga hooked up to a S-VHS deck, and the Amiga would digitally add subtitles.  Then you had an S-VHS master.  Then they'd record that to regular VHS and let everyone know.  The people who wanted a copy would mail you a money order, and you'd mail them a VHS tape.  And that's how we fansubbed in the olden days.

Remember the iPod Mini?  The short-lived ancestor of the iPod Nano?
With oh-so-caressable clickwheel and delightful monochrome screen?

spinachgunk.smugmug.com

I bought this one 9 years ago.  It won't die.  It is built like a tank.  It has outlived about 15 pairs of earphones.
I keep telling myself that I won't buy myself a fancy new player until this one packs it in.  Might have to wait a while.

Not that I mind...

This is the Agfa D-1 machine that I have in my lab. Today was its last day of production before being stripped of useful parts and scrapped. The film processor side of the machine was shut down over five years ago because we were getting so few rolls of film to process. This machine has produced over two million prints in its lifespan. New, this machine cost over $125,000...it's being replaced by a Fuji dry processor that is half the size and costs less than $20,000. I, for one, will miss the smell of developer.

The Greenie Hawkeye Flash


I don't just use antique cameras. I take them apart, clean them, lubricate the moving parts, modify them as desired (this one has had the lens changed and was painted) then put them back together and abuse them.

An elegant instrument for a more civilized age.


I see I'm not the only one around here who knows how to run a slipstick, and Yugo certainly knows more than I about running a camera.  Nevertheless, I have to show off a little.  Those are my grandfather's initials on the case, and under it, numbers for a part of an antenna array for a cubesat I'm working on.  I'm getting enough practice that I can crank out better than 1 FLOPS during well-worn routine calculations.

Palomino Blackwing Pencils and Kum (German) Two Stage Sharpener
farm9.staticflickr.com

Seriously, I love these pencils and sharpener. I carry a little notebook in my purse with one of the Palominos. I do use my smart phone for calendar stuff and notes, but there's something more satisfying about the tactile process of writing a list of things to do and crossing it all off as it gets done. (Similar but different frame from one I've used before)

Grandmothers gardening box that was made by my grandfather, that I later took, sanded and refinished by hand, and painted/stenciled and made into a hope chest for my fiancé.

It's older than both of us and a sibling put together, and she proudly displays it in the living room.
