oldschool.

    
     There is officially one place in town that still does one hour photo developing. Everywhere else I go people look at me like I'm mad when I ask about ye olde dinosaur, film. Like, seriously, not only does our brand new Wal-Mart Supercentre not develop film ("at the moment," they're out of photo paper they claim...?) but when I asked the clerk at the head of the photo department where the film was, he squinted at me and said he thought it was somewhere in the electronics department. And, lo and behold, there it was! A quaint row of film between ear buds and rechargeable batteries. Why is the film not in the photo department? Why does no-one develop film anymore? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD THESE DAYS?! Now excuse me, I'm going to go into my 1984 Citation motorhome to put a pot o' tea on my gas range and watch a VHS tape in my video cassette recorder, which is hooked up to my CRT television, thank you very much!
