Strange, interesting, semi-eventful weekend.
Friday, after school, went to Guitar Center with John, he ordered a resonator in black, pretty awesome. No one was helping me out whilst I was browsing the basses, so we went a couple blocks over to Sam Ash, where I got to have some fun. I played around on a fretless J-Bass for a while, and I must say I'm in love, I really have to get a freless soon. There's one in particular I'm looking at, which comes in fretted or fretless versions. Naturally, I would go for fretless, as I'm looking to diversify.
Saturday, I didn't do a whole lot. Got a bit done on the latest house portrait, looked around online for info on the camera I got last week. Its a Yashica Kyocera from (I would guess) the 80's, with a Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, supposed to be good stuff. Picked it up in great condition for $3, just needs a battery. My mom recently sold a house, the previous owner of which recently passed away, leaving no family in this country. The woman who lives across the street is selling everything in the house, so I got a great deal. Today, I went back and bought a Kodak Duaflex II TLR camera which takes very cool pictures. This was also $3. I found 3 places to buy film for it online, one of which (albeit the most expensive place) has a store in downtown Chicago, so I might stop by there after school sometime this week to see what they say about it. I mostly just want to see if they know where I can get the film developed. I'm excited.
Tonight I went sledding again with John, Gerry, and Pat. It was a ton of fun, mos def. Things really spiced up when we noticed the flagpole though (we were at a park) - it had a flag flying on it. It was too tempting, it had to be messed with. So, we (and by we I mean Gerry, our nominated revolutionary... I was busy with my role as the getaway driver) flipped that sucker upside-down! It's pretty visible, I was proud of him. I should have gotten a pic, maybe I will tomorrow morning if its still up.
