In July of this year some I went to Ribfest with a meat aficionado like myself, his vegan wife and my rarely-eats-anything-but-pasta daughter. Needless to say, two of us had a lot more fun there than the other two did. It also goes without saying that two of us ate so much that it hurt and felt uncomfortable for the whole trip home.

Also . . . I was growing thick "friendly chops" facial hair for a wedding. The groom desired it, so who am I to deny such a simple request.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
