More delightful iPhone discoveries. While feeling bummed about the price of Lomos and having to ‘collect them all’, I thought to search for Lomo in the App store and… tah dahr. Happy Times. Check out some from the aptly entitled Lomo App, and the Quad Cam App. Collect them all!

Worried y’ulle. Posted a bunch of my Shake It ‘roids on Facebook and some cre8ive said I was ‘inauthentic’. Want 2 die. FML. What’s the point in living if I’m not ‘authentic’. Need 2 get on this ASAP. Been thinking of ways to ‘increase my levels of authentic output’. Since Polaroid doesn’t make film any more, am considering taking the negatives of my MSWord copywriting documents to ORMS ‘to be scanned’. Heard scanning negs is quite authentic. What do y’ulle think? Should I ‘write short stories about being high with my Yashica & submit them to VICE mag’? Should I quit my job and ‘go work in Amsterdam’? Heard that’s also quite authentic, but maybe a bit faddy.* Maybe I’ll take a job in an ‘exotic country in the East’ and then just not deal with the authenticity overload and not be real enough to stick it out and ‘get over being authentic’ & come back to my ‘reality in suburban Cape Town’. Am kinda desperate 4 some cre8ive approval here so pls let me know what u think I should do before i ‘die from being inauthentic’. Peace y’ulz. Just need ur help. And affirmation. So insecure right now.
Please send any authenticity u can spare 2 email@example.com
*Don’t know the difference between a Trend and a fad? no probs. Dr Dre will explain:
“I’m a trend, I set one every time I’m in
I go out and just come back full circle again
You a fad, that means you’re something that we already had
But once you’re gone, you don’t come back, too bad.”
– Dr Dre aka the ultimate ‘authentic cre8ive’

Captured by Reigun and his Diana F+, from the birthday. It is still July. I have until the end of the month to talk about the birthday / accept birthday gifts / refer to the birthday / post pictures from the birthday.

i know. not blogging enough. because there’s a lot on my desk at the moment that isn’t just rad happy times to blog about. will get back to normal soon, i promise. i did get round to spending a lot of time scanning in photos i found in my drawer. the yellow ones were taken with a Lomolito Yellow Flash. the square ones are my dearest Polaroid, and the rest were taken by my parents and grandparents, so i’m not too sure. i scanned them in to get on top of my film photos since I just got myself a Lomo Cyber Sampler which i’m snapping with at the moment and it’s all in aid of a scanning backlog. enjoy.
