"Epiphany
Maybe people really do enjoy using Leicas more than other cameras."

I was reading a report on hearing aids where they quoted a survey which showed that the people who had paid top whack for their devices were the less pleased than those who paid the median rate. Apparently their expectations were too high.

Revisiting your most popular post had me laughing out loud again.

A few weeks ago, I wrote this blog entry (http://roberts-rants.blogspot.com/2007/11/idolatry.html)about celebrities because of something I read in a magazine. But that piece from the Guardian takes my breath away.

I guess that since we have all the food and shelter we need (although badly distributed), we just have too much time on our hands.


And is that Colorado politician going to be indicted for assault, do you think? A better punishment might be to saddle him with some of those British paps.

I must have started reading your blog after your 14 minutes of fame. I would have burst out laughing except my girlfriend is sleeping near by and she gets nasty when woken like that. Holy geez, you got that right and it's exactly why I stopped taking part in those critique style forums long ago. It reminds me yet again why I like the ones where you just leave a thumbs up or a note about what you like. It's not that I take superb photos. It's that I almost always disagreed with obtuse tips about how they could be "fixed". The critique ones are a bit like sitting in sunday school. I look forward to your fifteenth minute someday...

That wine trick is very old. Most restaurants carry a few 200+ dollar bottles for just that reason. Not because they're good. Good is usually 50 bucks....

I'd still like a Leica though. My canonet 28 with the red dot made from mom's nail polisher doesn't get me the chicks when I go out.

Neither will a Leica. No one knows a Leica is a status symbol except other photographers.

What a great photo of the Muddy Kid. Awesome!

"Mr. Irony" -- Damn that's funny. I've been giggling to myself all afternoon.

"Neither will a Leica. No one knows a Leica is a status symbol except other photographers."

But like a lottery, if you meet a "chick" who notices then your'e set. What a dream: a girlfriend who's also passionate about photography.

And here's another reason not to finish reading that review:

"My listening pleasure was not diminished by the use of the Atmos 309 cable ($99.00 for 3 metres pair), indicating that the M3 copes very well with an inexpensive cable, still providing admirable sound – not as good as my "big stuff", but praiseworthy all the same."
