"I like to coat in regular ambient level room light, or if I'm trying to make a lab a bit less uptight, under a few strands of non-blinking Christmas tree lights." ---Christopher James, "The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes"

it was also one of the first songs i worked out on the piano when i understood the piano enough to start picking out tunes that were important and stuck in my head all the time

my local indie radio station is playing 'ruby tuesday' and i am experiencing emotions because:
* it was one of the first songs i have a deep memory of hearing and remembering, i think someone gave my parents a stones album as one of their 'welcome to america you need to learn some good music' gifts
* who plays rolling stones on the radio anymore, that's why i love this station
* i mean i love this song

hmm though now that i look at it again maybe it's overdone? i should have some faint white lines on there even if it's underexposed, but i'm not seeing any at all now

oops, underexposed
