Over the last couple of years I have been a really good boy and resisted all, well most, hardware temptations. Working in the toy industry, sorry IT, means I get to see a lot of fancy gizmos but most of it leaves me cold. Recently though I’ve had my grubby mitts on the iPad and all of a sudden I’ve developed a credit card itch. I keep coming up with reasons why it would be a good idea to own one but to be honest they are all pretty weak and I should just admit to needing a bit of retail therapy to cheer myself up. Retail therapy? Fuck off you’re a bloke. Oh come on, there’s nothing wrong with getting in touch with your feminine side once in a while.
I have just read that Fujifilm have taken one of my observations on the shortcomings of the X100 camera very seriously and are working feverishly on a firmware update to improve the way it operates. I didn’t know my little website had so much clout. All they have got to do now is knock about 50% off the price and I’m definitely in the market for one.
Why don’t I name the models anymore? Thinking back over the history of SNAPSHOTS of GIRLS in most previous revisions I never did name the models. I have always found wading through the paperwork to find the names a pain in the arse so I haven’t bothered. I can see why you the customer want names. Like me, if you see a young lady who gets the juices flowing, you want to search for more. It’s often a fruitless mission though. The fact is nearly all internet models will be known by a shedload of different names depending on which market the images end up in. Some of these names are plucked out of thin air by the webmaster or editor to suit their publication, while others are stage names the models have chosen to keep some separation between their life in front of the camera and their home life. Stage names are a sensible idea too because pretty girls often attract nutters! Modelling careers are short. When moving on to a normal life there’s still a lot of prejudice against someone who’s made a living by taking their clothes off. Being a bit of a pussy cat I feel I should lend a hand with this anonymity especially since some of the young ladies who have graced the green sofa did it for reasons other than pursuing a modelling career or the money.
