Greetings film nerds and nerdettes …
Last night, while dreaming about Super Tuesday ... I was awakened from a fitful sleep at shortly after two o'clock in the morning by a shrill, sibilant, faceless voice that was sitting in my rocking chair. I couldn't make it out at first in the dark bedroom. I said, "I'm sorry, you'll have to talk a little louder."

I’ve always been a fan of the Polaroid. I mean, is there anything more magical than the sort-of instant gratification of snapping an image and then waiting with baited breath as the various details of that image reveal themselves—beginning as ghost-like apparitions devoid of human detail and gradually becoming either a flattering or unflattering photo? If you ask me, the whole digital (camera) age has completely taken the suspense out of the “supermodel or not a supermodel?” verdict process that determines whether one will keep or discard a photo.
