All day today, I've been formulating a blog post on Facebook, and just how much I hate it, in my mind. I decided to google some key words: "hate Facebook" and "narcissism Facebook". I got lots of interesting results. But this guy: Andy Ostroy (NYC-based political analyst) and his blog post on The Huffington Post were on point to my feelings on the subject. In fact, Andy Ostroy is in my head and sums up my thoughts exactly.
And he writes so much better than I do!
Don't forget to check out the video at the end---hilarious!

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a while. I was watching Make Me a Supermodel (high brow TV, I tell ya) and the finalists had a photo shoot with Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, famed portrait photographer. He used this camera called the 20 x 24 Polaroid. It produces superbly detailed, color and black and white 20 x 24 inch prints.
It stands 5 feet high and weighs 235 pounds. Here is more from polaroid.com:
Developed to accurately reproduce works of art, especially paintings and tapestries, the camera was soon used as a creative tool to make original photographs. At 20x24 studios in New York City, Boston, Cambridge, Prague, and, most recently, San Francisco, talented artists explore the large-format system for personal and commercial expression.
Let's see the camera in action, on location with William Wegman and his famous dogs.
Timothy Greenfield-Sanders frequently uses Polaroid's 20x24 camera to photograph celebrities. During the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, an array of talented film stars posed before this renowned portraitist and the ultra-large instant camera.
Also renowned for his portraits of celebrities, Douglas Kirkland visited Polaroid's 20x24 studio in New York City to try a different approach to his work—photographing a dancer in motion. Take a look and share this new experience with him.
