Howdy Roadies! Here’s my weekly Saturday roundup of the blog posts I enjoyed most this week.

Even if you don’t shoot film, you have almost certainly seen photographs shot on Kodak Tri-X. Its iconic look makes it arguably the best black-and-white film ever made. So says Stephen Dowling and I agree with him. Read Kodak Tri-X: The best black-and-white film ever made?

Fellow introvert Marzi nails it: sometimes we’re either excessively polite, or excessively rude. Read Get lost, ma’am.

TV writer Ken Levine writes in praise of The Golden Girls. Seriously. Read Here’s to The Golden Girls, the Rodney Dangerfield of Sitcoms

    Thank you for introducing me to Marzi. LOVED the cartoon you linked to (even if it hit distressingly close to home) — and loved browsing through her past drawings, too. She’s nailed it. As for The Golden Girls? I think I was too deep into The Sullen Teen Years to appreciate it when it first aired. Methinks perhaps I should revisit it? (Even if, again, I’m worried it’ll now hit distressingly close to home, ha ha.)

    It’s interesting that I have a completely different take on Tri-X from the linked article. I *do* use it on summer days and usually *pulled* to ISO 250. The results give a superbly rich palette of middle tones that I love. This is an example, taken with my YashicaMat LM last summer as we waited for a ferry in Wisconsin:

    Ferry - Merrimac, WI

    Maybe I need try a roll and night and get a flavor of what the author was talking about. Thanks for the interesting link.
