Evening Reading: April Fools' Day

Today is the day where the Internet has fun and we spend precious time trying to determine if some of the more subtle jokes are actually legit stories.

Shackers have collected as many gags as they could find in this thread from Morning Discussion.

My favorites were definitely YouTube's TEXTp ASCII rendering, unixkcd, and Deckard Cain's X-Treme Gamer Blanket.

Off to the studio to record Weekend Confirmed! Your regularly-scheduled ER will return tomorrow, fools.

    Neato. Photoshelter must have recently added (or I must not have noticed until now) canvas gallery style wrap prints to the options I have for things: "High-quality genuine canvas print, gallery wrapped and ready to hang or frame. Gallery wrapped canvas is specifically designed to allow mounting to the wall directly out of the box. The gallery wrap is a technique that wraps the actual image around all four sides of the image." http://shop.joshlyon.com

    I have no model photoshoots scheduled at all right now and I don't plan on it...I'm going to focus on more of the artistic stuff once Easter passes and I have some more free time. I also just applied for a job in a town in Kentucky with a population of 9000 :O I'm ready to get out of california and do something entirely different!

      moving to the south in a 9000 town population is definitely going to be opposite of CA

            I hope I never have to go back to virginia...there lies a creature so foul, so cruel that no man yet has fought with it and lived. Bones of full fifty men lie strewn about its lair.

      9,000 people is REALLY small. And being a small town in Kentucky, your more risqué work might seriously offend some people, and that could really hamper your business.

            The selection of models is going to be pretty limited. I think you already know it is a bad idea to move there.

                Would you be working directly for a corporation as their in-house photographer? Or is it in more of a traditional studio?

        I live in a town of 500, now that is small. I was looking at census data for 2000 and saw the population was 1% black and I wondered who those 5 people were.

        kentucky i guess. i live in a smaller town in WY and know of at least one nude photog and a model. that is to say I'd be more worried about Kentucky than small
