Old friend Michael Reichmann has a nice chat with old friend Ctein. The only problem? I wasn't there!
Except, I sort of am...and you can be too, because it's available for video download from The Luminous Landscape ($10). I've only seen about half of it so far; I do hope Ctein pulls out some prints eventually.
A very pleasant way to while away some time.

Caleb Courteau: "I bought and watched this last week. After reading Ctein's columns here the last several years he feels like a favorite uncle (I'm 27). At ten dollars this was an impulse buy. It was a pleasure to finally here the voice behind the columns, which was my main motivation for purchasing the video. We get a dose of his sense of humor (What's the opposite of 'prosumer'? 'Confessional.' Rimshot.), and also get a chance to see some of his prints. The image of the bird's imprint on the window is a real masterpiece, and the image of the night lit woods is a tour de force of print making skill. As a fan of Ctein this was all fascinating to me, but I was just as enraptured by the warm report between him and Michael Reichmann. Clearly they're good friends, and in Reichman and Ctein we have veritable encyclopedias of the history and state of the camera industry and of the art of print making respectively. It's very entertaining listening to them converse and educate each other about their particular areas of expertise. All in all a great way to spend ten dollars and sixty minutes."
