Want to avoid sitting on uncle Frank's lap this Christmas day? Sure, we know the holidays are meant to be a time of family, being thankful and all that jazz, but sometimes you just don't want to join in the madness that comes with excess eating and angry eggnog drinkers... So, what are the best excuses?
Ok, so maybe not the best, but some that are credible and some not so much…
Parking is too hard to find near my house and I have the perfect spot!
I hit a turkey while riding a bike and had to take it to vet
I had a heart attack early that morning, but I am “all better now."
The dog can’t take the stress of family reunions
I hurt my toe when a can fell out of the refrigerator
My psychic said today was not a good day to leave the house
I’ve been scheduled for a karma transplant
The man on television told me to say tuned
I’m trying to see how long I can go without saying yes
I’m being deported
I’m converting my calendar watch from solar to lunar
I am busy multiple exposing
None of my socks match
I changed the lock on my door and now I can’t get out
I never go out on days that end in “Y”
My favorite commercial is on TV
I have to study for a blood test
I have to update my Facebook Status
The voices in my head are saying I can’t go
I would tell you why I can’t come, but then I would have to kill you
Winter is upon us! Want to make the most out of your Lomo'Instant camera this Christmas? Here are five fabulous tricks to try during the holidays that would add a touch of character to your gifts and decorations.
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
