We attempted to develop negatives today in school. It took up about 30 minutes to mix the chemicals, review the instructions, and actually go through the process, only to find that we made a mistake by putting a wrong chemical in at the wrong time, resulting in a blank roll of film.

Wow. Some incredible lyrics from a local artist (who's actually a solo act, even though he pluralized his stage name). I wish I could trade in whatever bit of intelligence I have for a bit of creativity.

I learned Mirah's "Sweepstakes Prize." Takes more coordination than I thought.
