more observations on gear nerdery & utility fetishism

1. You have too much crap in your wallet.

1a. There's nothing you can do about it, so relax.

2. A film camera isn't just a different animal. It breathes some other atmosphere and preys on strange creatures with metabolisms a digital camera isn't even sure can exist.

3. Twist-action on/off is stupid. Flashlights should have a button you can click with one hand.

4. Fuck nonstandard batteries, especially in basic tools. If I can't buy them at the only store in town, your gadget is bad and you should feel bad.

5. Most of what you can't move with a skidsteer loader just doesn't need moved all that bad.
