MessyNessyChic: The Forgotten Treehouse Bars of Bygone Summers in Paris.

I’d break a leg. I can’t drink much. One drink and I’m usually bordering on loopy, so I make sure it’s a quality drink. That being said, there are a couple of places in Santa Fe that seem to turbocharge their drinks. I’ve ordered one, sipped it through dinner, and barely been able to walk out of the restaurant after. For shame. The consummate cheap date. Imagine yours truly trying to exit one of these Parisian things. They’d have to lower me down on a pulley with a dribble bib.

WhiteAlbum - take cellphone photos, never see them again until printed and mailed.

$20 per album. Not too expensive. Will absolutely appeal to the analog crowd.

Newbie to Expert Photo Editing in 5 Minutes.

Fun, if you’ve never dragged a slider in your photo editing program before (I’ll wager you have). I think the biggest mistake for beginners ... do your adjustments, then go back and halve them. Everyone overdoes, when starting out. Do more work in the camera next time, not in post.

iPhone does decent video, within a narrow range. This extends the capabilities a bit.

MessyNessy: The ten year Apocalypse that nearly destroyed the Midwest.

Two bits of trivia.

First: Back then, any major event was likely to be correlated with the Second Coming. My grandmother remembers the roar of the first airplane overhead in her green little valley nestled in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee - everyone went running to the Baptist church, thinking it was a harbinger angel: “... the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.” [And yes, longtime readers, I’m sure I’ve told this story before. But it’s a good story.]

Second: Dryland farming had already, in the late 1800s, proved rather unwise. As practiced at that time. There were warnings - smaller ‘dustbowls’. Farmers needed to toss the disc harrows and stop grinding soil to powder. The prairie grasses were important. Many histories exist - Google it.

How much better mobile camera filters would be ...

... if we who use Lightroom and Photoshop could craft - and sell - our own.  Just thinkerin’ out loud. Instead of manufacturers having miserably equipped closed systems, they could just take a cut from the thousands of folks who’d be posting filters for sale. Implement a user-scoring system a la Amazon, with reviews.
