Rogue Film

Posted 2009.11.06 21.27 in Hobbies, Photography

I finally decided I’d better start filing away all my negatives, after all the photography I’ve been doing in the past few months. I don’t even know how many rolls of film I’ve processed here, but the negs had been piling up.

I have some of those archival 3-ring insert sleeve things, so I got to it, filing away my negs by date and roll. So far, so good.

When I was finished though, I found myself with a rogue bit of film…

Rogue Film

Five frames of Ilford FP4+, obviously taken recently (that is, in the past few months) but I have no recollection of ever using FP4+ film. I have HP5+, but that’s the only Ilford I’ve used. I went through my notes, but I can’t find any reference to FP4+ nor can I find any more frames from this roll.

It’s a mystery…

Obscure TV Trivia Answers

Posted 2009.11.06 10.19 in Music/Movies/TV

Ok so here’s the answers to last week’s obscure TV trivia questions:

For 5 points, all we needed was the names of any two movies that actor Troy McClure has starred in. This was an easy one as just about every time Troy appears on a Simpsons episode, he introduces himself with “You may remember me from such films as…” and names two films. For instance “Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die” or “The President’s Neck Is Missing!”

For 50 points, we needed the superhero identity of Drake Mallard. This was a tougher one, though the name makes it obvious we’re talking about a duck. What duck? When you’ve got trouble you call DW! DarkWing Duck!

For 100 points, we needed the detective agency where Cornfed works. Again, slightly more obscure, but the name and the fact that it’s a detective agency tip the hat. Duckman’s detective agency.

And finally, at 250 points, the most obscure reference at all. El Ka-Bong was an alter-ego of the drunken / senile Franklin Sherman, father of Jay Sherman, “The Critic”. (Side note: Is it wrong that Franklin Sherman is one of my heros?)

Cheers!
