People, who while trying to sell cameras or lenses online, post blurry photos of said camera or lenses.

Picked up an old copy of the Sun at work, it accidently fell open on page 3 & I found myself thinking about how fake the eyes & face looked due to over processing instead of looking at the overall picture!!!!
Am I getting old, gay or too engrossed in my hobby?

Not likely! but I did have to give myself a mental kick up the backside, thinking what a sad so and so I have become.

Walking along Aberystwyth Prom earlier today to find a load of Welsh line-dancers going at it hammer and tongs (cowboy hats and leather boots)... Country and Western songs don't quite sound the same sung in Welsh!  ::)

They're releasing the entire Beatles catalogue again - remastered - just how many times can you sell one piece of recorded music to the same people??

My local radio DJ, who happens to be a rather famous guitarist in his own right here, says that the remastered box set is worth buying. He claims that the technology used today far outstrips the old remastering and these recordings are phenominal. Not a beatle fan so could care less. ::)
