Retro to military classics

Angels Retro Sale February 6, 2010
Twitter, Facebook Group

There’s a special folder I like to call ‘Canned & Non-perishables’ that contain photos like these that act as insurance when sleep, laziness, natural disaster or sudden death strike on my end of the paper cup telephone. Today I’m too drunk on fatigue to string together a season-appropriate post so here we go, gone and dug out photos from the Angels Costume Sale from February. I’m sure they speak for themselves without having me write a semi-coherent paragraph here about something irrelevant. Here’s a one-word review for the sale: WHOOPEE! (Let’s not get me hooked on one-word reviews…)

There’s no news in when the next sale will happen, but follow them on twitter to be the first to know!

Exactly one month ago today was when I put the order for Canon EOS 550D at Calumet, with hopes of picking it up in a few days. I was starting to wonder, as days and weeks crept by, whether they were trying to assemble the camera with sticky rice, or instead of loading it onto an airplane they’d commissioned a Tokyo taxi driver to courier the cameras to London. Little did I know that the lovely volcano with a keyboard-slam of a name would interrupt delivery flights, and the factories lacked parts to birth my baby. Then the call came last Friday, and today Kit and I went to pick up the camera, oh bliss. This photoshoot marks the first hundred shuttercounts of the hopeful millions to come. Thank you 400D for being my closest sketchbook & pencil since 2007.

Thank you Kit for slaving in the heat, waiting on you to join the new-camera club!
