It’s January, and for me that means a couple of things. First, the annual trip to the mall in search of bigger jeans, and second it’s the perfect time for some housecleaning. And by housecleaning I mean not only our domicile but also our digital homestead.
And one of the rooms in our virtual house that always seems to need cleaning is the iPhoto library.
Digitial photography is a wonderful thing, but the reality is that I have 10 photos of a scene which usually means about 3 keepers. Tons of photos get tossed and the rest get backed up. It’s a tedious process, but one side benefit is rediscovering photos that have been forgotten. As I started pulling out some of these photos, a theme emerged: “Weird and Wonderful.” So for the next couple of weeks, we’ll be posting some interesting, offbeat topics and hope that you’ll follow along.
P.S. And if you’re wondering about the origin of the wacky quote, you’ve got filmmaker John Carpenter to thank. In his 1988 cult classic They Live he penned the words that ended up here on the side of a building in downtown Reykjavik, Iceland – of all places! Check out the film clip and the explanation. The full quote is:
“I’ve come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass … and I’m all out of bubblegum!”
