Why you should share your photographs with others - Daniel J. Schneider
> "Doing work for hire that doesn’t interest you is a recipe for burnout. You’ll never do your best work, and might even find yourself doing distasteful work, when you’re working only with someone else in mind."

Camille A. Brown: A visual history of social dance in 25 moves | TED Talk | TED.com
Saw this on a plane ride recently but couldn't hear the audio. Made a note of the person's name and found it when I landed. This is really good. It makes me want to learn all these moves.

Parking (11.2008) & how to scan with borders using Canon C… | Flickr
Information on how to scan film borders. Basically cut a hole in a sheet of paper that's exactly the size you want of the frame and the paper prevents newton rings. Put something on top of the film (he uses a part of a CD case) to keep it flat.

TMNT Secrets of the Ooze by mooncalfe on DeviantArt
> My TMNT fan comic! Secrets of the Ooze is a very loose adaptation of the movie TMNT 2: The Secret of the Ooze directed by Michael Pressman. In addition to the regular four Turtles, there's a fifth, Artemisia, and Alopex, the Turtles' adopted mutant fox sister who has lived with them since a young age and whose origins are a mystery. Artemisia has no special origin, in this story there were simply five turtles from the beginning.

I absolutely love the idea of a 5th, female turtle.

Nikon FM2 focusing screens: How to replace? - Photo.net Nikon Forum
I got a B3 screen (for FM3A) that seems to be working just fine. Now I wonder if I shouldn't have gotten an E3 screen (matte + grid lines). It's also available new on B&H. I don't know why I didn't think to look for that before other than the B3 is what Jakob has on his FM3A and it seemed awesome.
