Nine times as good

In addition to the Lomographic Society Fisheye 2 that Laura gave me for Christmas, she also gave me one of their goofy Pop 9 cameras, a shiny golden 35mm pocket camera that has nine lenses in a 3x3 array. I was a bit skeptical as to the utility of the camera when I opened the package, but I have to say, I'm pleased with how my first shots a couple of days after Christmas turned out. If one photo of a goofy sign is good, nine photos must be nine times as good, right?

No Super Sale



The only problem is that these little thumbnails really don't do them justice. You'll just have to go over to my photos site and look at them a little larger to see what's really going on here.

Anthony and Jimmy's moved? What are they gonna start using that fancy newfangled Barbicide stuff now? At least the jokes are always the same.

Not only did they move, they're not called "Anthony and Jimmy's" any more, and Anthony and Jimmy don't appear to cut hair any more, although they hang out. My hair cut last week was done by Marie, and I didn't hear any cussing at all when I was there. Most of the sports memorabilia on the walls is gone, too.

If you go to and click on Shop and then Global Shop Locator, you'll find that there's a Lomographic Embassy in Wellington where you should be able to find the cameras put out by the Lomographic Society. Or you could wait until you come to the US later this year; there are a number of sources in the Boston area, including three Urban Outfitters, which is where Laura bought me mine.

Nah, Anthony and Jimmy are still around and cutting hair, along with the younger Phil who's been with them for a few years. However, they have expanded to include a younger guy named Mark, an old guy who never seems to get any customers (sort of like Cedric the Entertainer's character in Barbershop) and one or two women, including Marie, who, in my view, is terrible. I'm not a big fan of barbershops expanding and becoming "unisex" type cutteries, though A&J's is pretty much the same otherwise. They're now called "Main Street Cutters," unfortunately, which I believe reflects them bringing Phil in a an equal partner, since he has a loyal customer base.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
