▶ As a kid I read and re-read the local free NZ music news magazine Rip It Up (its first 102 issues, running from 1977 to 1985, are available via the Papers Past website). It was fuel for my dreams, especially if there was a photo of a recording studio… Very occasionally I’d read UK magazines (while “browsing” in a book store) but I never, ever thought for a second I would be quoted by one of them, and for this lol It’s also been republished a few times now (I’d never know other than for a Google Alert I set up a decade ago… its been pinging me all week as it gets reposted in online magazines… Mixmag was today)

▶ This perplexes me. A lot of people who shoot film now, don’t keep their negatives! This article explains the same issue but the local lab I sue for months now has been haranguing people to either come pick up their negatives or they will be dumped. Negatives are not like boxes of vinyl, they are tiny and easily stored. As that article quotes Ansel Adams, “the negative is like a composer’s score and the print is the performance” so why would someone who goes to the trouble of shooting film throw away their future potential to make prints!? #regretsy
