Our 2nd Blogaversary: I Still Have Stuff

Yes, I still have “Stuff” and as you can see from our two years at The Stars Hollow Gazette, I’ve stored quite a lot of it right here. Among ek hornbeck, myself and our good friends, we have written 5962 diaries in the last 24 months. That’s an average of 8 diaries per day. That’s a lot of “stuff” and we are no where near done.

And my bookmarks, they still have “stuff” I should relegate to the trash bin but if I could just remember why I saved it in the first place. Like this one: The Original Fairy Name Generator

This is my “fairy’ name Columbine Icedancer

She protects the vulnerable and brings justice to the wronged.

She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.

She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.

She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers and has icy blue butterfly wings.

I want to thank all those who have written diaries, especially, our good friends Translator, davidseth, BruceMcF and the writers of Anti-Capitalist Meetup who have become our “regulars”. Thank you for putting your “stuff” here.

And most of all thank you to everyone for reading all of this “stuff.”

Feel free to store your “stuff” here.

Stuff

Republished from our first day on line.

I have stuff. Lots of stuff and not just the tangible kind that you can put your hands on and touch. When I suggested to ek hornbeck that we start this site and began working on diaries that I should write to help fill the pages as we attract readers and participants here, I began by looking at some of the “stuff” in my bookmarks and went WOW, I need to “clean” out all this stuff. Then I said “Wait, I  now have a place to put this “stuff” that I am about to “delete” forever into the infinity of cyberspace”.

Venice has finally broken with centuries of tradition by appointing its first ever female gondolier.

Big and Small Creatures: Wild, Tame and Human

My ex-sister-in-law (I have a few) with whom I’ve remained friends despite that she is a Republican, Yankee Fan, born again and again Christian (no offense intended to anyone here present but I am a card carrying Wiccan. It even says so on my dog tags), sends me these forwarded a zillion times e-mails. Mostly I disregard them and delete. Last night I don’t know what possessed me but I opened this one. Get your tissues, it is sweet.

A Day at the Beach…in China

My ex-sister-in-law who is a born again and again Christian, Up-State NY Republican and die hard devoted Yankees fan with whom, somehow, I’ve maintained a friendship, sent me this e-mail.

When you need to relax and just get away from it all…..May I suggest a day at the beach in CHINA ‘

Obituary: Last Roll of Kodachrome Finally Developed

Exposed: The Last Roll Of Kodachrome

In 1984, photojournalist Steve McCurry was in an Afghan refugee camp in Pakistan. He followed the sound of voices to a tent where he found a group of girls. “I noticed this one little girl off to the side that had his incredible set of eyes that seemed almost haunted – or very piercing,” he tells NPR’s Audie Cornish.

McCurry snapped a picture that ended up on the cover of National Geographic’s June 1985 issue. “The Afghan Girl” became one of the magazine’s most widely recognized photographs – and one of the century’s most iconic. To get that shot, McCurry used a type of film that has become iconic in its own right: Kodachrome.

The film, known for its rich saturation and archival durability of its slides, was discontinued last year to the dismay of photographers worldwide. But Kodak gave the last roll ever produced to McCurry. He has just processed that coveted roll at Dwayne’s Photo Service in Parsons, Kan. – the last remaining location that processes the once-popular slide film.

The pictures that are on the last roll of Kodachrome will become the subject of a “National Geographic” documentary.

I have fond memories of my 35mm Yashika and Canon cameras.
