....everywhere you look, you see people holding up books in front of a camera.
You can't get away from it. It's an epidemic -- more prevalent than Pet Rocks in the '70s (or whenever the hell that was), more in-your-face than Gilbert Gottfried's Acne Cream ©, more ubiquitous (I don't care if you don't know it, go look it up) than photos of drunken Britney Spears in last month's Enquirer -- it's everywhere.
Now, you may well be asking yourself "Why is this?" -- and well you may. Ask, that is. Go ahead and ask.
I don't have any answers. If I did, I wouldn't have wasted three paragraphs on the drivel above. But I did, so that should tell you something. It tells me something, it tells me I'm having slow day and need to get back to work on "Moving Targets" already.
And I will. Eventually.
In the meantime, I wanted to show you what it is I'm talking about here -- in particular, two pictures showing the aforementioned people holding up the aforementioned books.
And thanks to Wade and Emily from Otaku Hobbies in Schererville, Indiana (my absolute favorite collectibles store in the entire universe!) for indulging me in my silly, misguided attempt at self-promotion. They're nice people and they treat their customers disturbingly well!
The pics came out bigger and blurrier than I thought, but that's OK. I think the point I wanted to make is clear, regardless -- the point being that I need to learn how to use a camera. Oooooops.
Thanks again to Wade and Emily!
