From the Department of Indie Know How:

Developing Film in Coffee :) , Caffenol C and Agfa APX 100 from DanPV on Vimeo.

For everyone complaining about the cost or unavailability of processing film, here is a lowcost & ingenious method using vitamin c, powdered caffeinated coffee, water and "washing soda" to produce soft-contrast negatives.

I haven't tried it yet but soon will.

The Way Things Go

The Way Things Go from Jack Turner on Vimeo.

ARTLURKER posted this as their sunday video. I couldn't resist doing the same as cause and effect rule the day and night for better or worse, beyond judgement and above all other laws.

Fischi & Weiss. The Way Things Go.

Dead Dash Snow

Dash Snow overdosed last night. Another artist dead too early at the age of 27. I wasn't a fan of his work, though I find any larger-than-life persona interesting as a cultural phenomenon, like pop music or fast food fads or clothing trends- the gritty child of Warhol's shadow.Mr. Snow's personality eclipsed his work, and that may very well have been the point. I imagine he knew the risks and accepted their possibilities...

A somewhat relevant scene, from the film HAPPINESS, regarding the excesses of the human condition and their effects (the real tragedy...):
