Here goes..................................................................um..........oh yeah, the comment. Hey, obsessive slideshows of trips to the movie theater (especially when shot with creativity as criteria A # 1) are memories that will last a lifetime. Take the advice, try it sometime.

keyser, you're so right. That was seriously such a fun night. And we ended up not even watching a movie at the theater did we? I should post those pictures on the site...hmm... Honestly, kids, here's a tip. Make a photo essay of something otherwise mundane, and shoot it artistically. It will become epic. So cool.

You could also use your CD-Rs the way my dad does. String them up in your fruit trees to scare away birds. (This also works with pie tins.)
