"Kodachrome. They give us those nice bright colors. They give us the greens of summers. Makes you think all the world's a sunny day. I got a Nikon camera. I love to take a photograph, so mama don't take my Kodachrome away." - Paul Simon

So mama didn't take our Kodachrome away.  Cell phones did.

I heard "Kodachrome" recently on the radio and I remembered my first camera.  We made it in the second grade and it took actual pictures.  I spent a good portion of the day reminiscing and remembering how much I like going home and flipping through my parent's photo albums.

Since the inception of phone cameras we, like everyone else we know, stopped taking pictures with actual cameras.

We no longer had to bring our tiny 36-roll film canister into Walgreens and drive back the next day to pick up our photos neatly stored in a sturdy cardboard yellow envelope and could finally see what we hoped weren't blurry shots of relatives with their heads cut off from last month’s family reunion.

Gone were the days of deciding what was worth hauling out the camera.  Back then we stuck to the really important moments: birthdays, holidays, baby's first steps, graduations etc.  Enter the 2000s and the era of capturing anything we wanted at any time was literally now at our fingertips.

We were giddy and our human nature of more being more kicked in and everything became a precious moment.  Five pictures of the dog snoring, a good-hair day, a bad hair day, the funny bumper sticker on the car ahead of us in traffic, the food on our plate.

And wasn't that great?  Not having to yell "where's the camera?" only to find it was out of film or the flash wasn't working, leaving a precious moment un-captured and lost forever to memory.

I loved it for years too.  I think I have 20 pictures of my nephew asleep all during the same nap.  Recently though, I've stopped loving it.  I realized I didn't want to be 70 years old looking at pictures that may or may not still be there glowing against a backlit screen.  I also do not trust "the cloud," an entity meant to secure and store information forever but disturbingly named after something that could blow away at any minute.

So I came up with what seemed like a simple idea and, with my nostalgic gene at the helm, decided I'd take all the pictures I'd snapped with my Motorola flip phone, my Blackberry, my Blackberry+, my iPhone, my iPhone 4, my iPhone 4+, my iPhone 6 (I skipped the 5), my iPhone 6+ and finally my iPhone 8 (I also skipped 7....apparently I don't like odd numbers) and print them all out.

That was three months ago - exactly how long I've been working on this and also the last time we saw the surface of our dining room table.

Three months and about 3,000 paper cuts later, I'm roughly halfway through 15 years' worth of photos.  They exist only on my laptop (transferred from earlier phones) and my latest iPhone that goes back to 2014, (when Apple started transferring all data from old phones to the newest model as people decided/were forced to upgrade).  By the time I'm done it'll be around 1700 photos.  About the average of three 36 film rolls per year for 15 years.

I'm on a mission that has my wife, our dog and me eating in the den, but it's worth it.

I want to look at the nice bright colors and the greens of summer by the light of a crackling fire peeking through an iron screen, not the harsh back light of a cracked one.

“What a lovely winter we’re having this spring….” 

- Someecards


Lissie

Lissie

"A poppy anthem about optimism in the face of overwhelming odds.”American Songwriter

“It’s open, expansive, and unbridled in its joy, meshing folk origins and chugging electric distortion.”Baeble

“Without much fuss, Elisabeth Corrin Maurus has quietly become one of the most vital vocalists around.”NME

Jade Bird

Jade Bird

"A rip-roaring blast"NPR

“…her outlaw spirit, fiery riffs and ready-to-roar vocals illustrated everyday gender dynamics.”
Los Angeles Times

"South by Southwest Music Festival: 17 Acts That Stood Out" – New York Times

Caroline Rose

Caroline Rose

"On her self-assured second album, this singer-songwriter uses her mordant wit to confront serious subjects, exorcising trauma with hooks and humor."Pitchfork (7.6 out of 10)

“This records has the force of true originality…" NPR Music

"On LONER, Rose’s sound has expanded in a zillion directions, each track bursting with ideas and personality.” — Stereogum "Artist to Watch"

The National

The National

"The National's best LP yet. Haunted by mordant beauty, rattled paranoia. **** "Rolling Stone

"Elegant melancholia isn't enough for The National anymore. On its seventh album... its new songs have more rhythmic ferment and melodic crosscurrents; they translate emotional complexity into musical counterpoint." – New York Times

“’Guilty Party’ is an instant National classic: a brooding, longing love song of defeat, with a haunting melody that lingers in your head long after the song is over.”WXPN
