Film Review: The Impossible Is, Well, Not Quite Yet Possible

2015-07-22-1437577369-8537887-sx70.jpg

Polaroid has always been a bit of a legend and a bit of a mystery to me. I grew up in the 80s, so Polaroid was pop culture, although less and less so as I came of age. By the time I became a “photographer” Polaroids were no longer really in use, even though the Polaroid Corporation continued to make various films into the late 2000s. Finally, by 2008 or so, it had completely vanished.

Enter the Impossible Project, a Dutch company that bought the old Polaroid factory along with their patents etc. Soon Polaroid film – and therefore Polaroid cameras – would be up and working again. However, not all would be the same.

Given my lifelong curiosity with Polaroid cameras, I recently decided to dive in. I contacted the good people at The Impossible Project and we hashed out a deal for them to sponsor a project. Soon after they sent me a really nice refurbished SX-70 along with a hefty supply of film. Thanks be to The Impossible Project and their wonderful employees!

I really wanted to like their film. I really wanted to fall in love with the SX-70, one of the most romantic cameras of all time. I imagined myself roaming the streets of New York, SX-70 slung over my shoulder, making some of my greatest photographs to date. Alas, none of this would come to pass.

Here’s the short version of the story: Impossible film is just not stable enough (yet!) to be really useful. I hate to say it, but that seems to be the truth of the matter.

I tried the SX-70 indoors with ample light, but to no avail. Here’s Matthew in a failed attempt at a brightly lit portrait.

2015-07-22-1437578429-9801140-PolaroidBW3.jpeg

Next, I tried the B&W film outdoors. Better success. Here’s Granamyr’s claw. But things were still difficult. Sunlight and heat would be major obstacles to overcome in New York in July. The film doesn’t like weather that is too hot, or too cold. It also doesn’t like too much light in those first few seconds after exposure.

2015-07-22-1437578465-9981971-PolaroidBW1.jpeg

I installed the frog tongue, after a lot of frustration (poor directions, no visuals), and things again improved some. Here are a few more attempts at outdoor photography with color and black and white film.

2015-07-22-1437578503-4450029-polaroid4.jpeg

2015-07-22-1437578979-3935404-PolaroidBW2.jpeg

2015-07-22-1437578586-5309220-Polaroid5.jpeg

In this next shot, the brick wall was a vibrant yellow. As you can see the film did not pick up the color well at all. In the following shot, a red and white wall is similarly washed out, although the photo is my favorite of all of them. It’s artsy and abstract and fun! This is perhaps were the gem lies in Impossible film – in the experimentation and fun.

2015-07-22-1437578774-4260075-polaroid3.jpeg

2015-07-22-1437578799-9227198-Polaroid1.jpeg

This next image shows the lack of detail in the image, despite having the focus sharp at the time of capture.

2015-07-22-1437578902-7962715-PolaroidBW4.jpeg

The Impossible Project has been around for some time now. I think it is safe to say the “novelty” of it all has worn away. People still using this film are likely genuinely interested in instant film and not merely the “idea” of it. Having said this, this is where we are now with getting the Polaroid image back into pop culture. We kinda, sorta, more or less have it, but not quite. The images are just not we used to know as a “Polaroid photograph”. In their defense, the team at Impossible tells me that Holland (where their factory is located) has restricted the use of many chemicals on environmental grounds. This is great for the environment, but poor for the film quality. Yet, at least they are trying to get things going again and still remain environmentally friendly. Fujifilm Instax film on the other hand is likely using much more harmful chemicals to achieve their superior results. This is all worth noting, as is the general observation that analog film, in general terms, is not all that congruent with environmental movements.

In the end, I have to say there is indeed something magical about using a Polaroid camera, about the SX-70 especially. The decisive clunk of the shutter button, the whirl of the gears and the spitting out of a real piece of photographic history. It’s all very exciting. The disappointment comes in terms of the quality of the image. The film just doesn’t resolve enough detail to really be useful for serious photography and, at just over $ 3 a shot, it’s an expensive hobby. Despite this, The Impossible Project says they sold over 1 million packs of film last year and things are on the rise. They also tell me that there is a new generation of film being beta tested as I write this post. That’s exciting because I would really like to see the Impossible become, well, more possible. The very real and wonderful people behind this project are trying to do a good thing for photography, but they may have a steep hill yet to climb. Regardless, I’m not giving up on the SX-70 or The Impossible Project just yet.

2015-07-22-1437579006-6040604-Polaroid7.jpeg

Bottom Line: I can wholeheartedly recommend Impossible film for personal fun and/or experimental use, but cannot recommend it (at this time) for anything serious or professional. It’s a mixed bag verdict.

This Possible ‘Harry Potter’ Couple Would Ruin Harry Potter’s Childhood Even More

Harry Potter might want to keep away from the latest edition of The Quibbler.

Following a recent Instagram post, the online speculation is that Harry’s dad, James Potter, aka actor Robbie Jarvis, may be dating Luna Lovegood, aka actress Evanna Lynch. And if Harry’s childhood wasn’t ruined before, it definitely is now:




That photo isn’t all, though. Despite the fact that E! wasn’t given conformation from Jarvis’ reps that the two were dating, other cute photos just seem to add to the evidence. Take this one for example:

Trying on hats with @msevylynch. Which one of us looks better? #fancy

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on




And check out this one where they apparently took Polyjuice Potion and transformed into owls. Nice try, James and Luna, but we know it’s you:

Owls!

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on

So why is this such a big deal? OK, first, let’s skip past the fact that in “Harry Potter,” Luna came in during Ginny’s year and is younger than Harry. Just forget that. But didn’t Harry also take Luna to Professor Slughorn’s Christmas party? Now his dad might be taking her out? Oh, and what about Lily Potter, James? What about Lily?

Voldemort has done some pretty messed up things to Harry Potter before, but this might be crossing the line.

That being said, we wish all the happiness in the world to the potential couple because they are just actors and Harry Potter isn’t real. Or that’s what people want you to believe, anyway.

Representatives for the actors did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post’s requests for comment.

5 Possible Choices for Hillary’s Running Mate

One thing we know for certain is that it won’t be a quasi-Republican, weak-kneed, moderate Democrat. Unless Mitt Romney comes riding in on a white horse at the last minute, and becomes a formidable opponent, she won’t need to kiss up to moderate Republicans. Polls show her doing remarkably well against anyone already mentioned, including Jeb Bush.

Another thing we know is that it won’t be Joe Biden. While it’s possible he’d accept a position in Hillary’s cabinet (Secretary of State or Defense) he’s already done his time. Although the job has been depicted, historically, as thankless and puerile, Biden seemed to thrive in the position. No shrinking violet, it gave him the public platform he coveted. Still, it’s a case of “Been there, done that.”

Here are five choices in descending order of probability.

ELIZABETH WARREN
If Warren is looking for a podium from which to preach her long-needed, anti-Wall Street reform philosophy, here’s a question: Which will get her more attention–the U.S. Senate, where she’s one of 100, or the Vice-Presidency of the United States? Hillary personally likes Liz and would love to turn her loose, allowing her to say all the things that she, as president, probably can’t say.

The obvious downside would be inducing people to vote for two women. Hillary would be our first female president, but ushering in the first woman vice-president on the same ticket might be too much to ask of the non-progressives. On the other hand, for women voters still on the fence, a Sorority Sister ticket might just be enough to sway them.

HOWARD DEAN
He’s smart, ambitious, antsy, regretful at not having made more of his earlier (2004) opportunity, and eager to mount another appearance on the national stage. Both he and Hillary come off as preternaturally intelligent, but what she lacks in old-fashioned likeability and trustworthiness, Dean possesses in spades. He’s also an M.D., a family doctor. It would be a great pairing.

BERNIE SANDERS
Like Howard Dean, another Vermonter, and my personal favorite. But unlike Dean, he’s a wise and savvy prairie socialist who would give the ticket the necessary “leftwing heft” it requires. His place on the ticket might encourage hope-to-die McGovernites and Ramsey Clark loyalists to vote for a “hawk” like Hillary.

Although Sanders will be 75 years old come election day in 2016, he is physically and mentally fit. Indeed, even at his advanced years, he is arguably mentally sharper than Rick Perry was when he was a fraternity pledge at Texas A&M.

ANTHONY VILLARAIGOSA
Former Mayor of Los Angeles, and perennial political wannabe. His virtues: He’s likeable, he’s Latino, he’s articulate, he’s wildly ambitious, and he’s just humble and clueless enough to interpret being added to the ticket in order to secure the Latino vote as a “compliment.” Also, anyone who failed the bar exam four times can’t be all bad.

BILL CLINTON
A bloodless coup. Hillary becomes president. Bill becomes vice-president. Hillary suddenly resigns. Bill becomes president. He vows to accomplish in his third term what he couldn’t finish during his first two. Ken Starr beware. Payback is a bitch.

Granada Defender Fails To Block Goal In Worst Possible Way

Real Madrid trounced Granada CF on Sunday with a final score of 9-1.

But as this Vine painfully illustrates, it wasn’t for a lack of effort, as one Granada defender left it all on the field — and then some — while failing to block the first goal of the game, scored by Gareth Bale:

Following Bale’s game-opening score, Cristiano Ronaldo proceeded to score five goals of his own, three of which he scored in a period of just eight minutes.

Justice Department Probes Possible Price-Fixing In Music Publishing

July 15 (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating possible pricing coordination among music publishing companies as it reviews the decades-old rules that govern the cost of licensing songs, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The Justice Department has sent out requests for documents from Sony Corp’s Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Publishing, along with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and Broadcast Music Inc (BMI), the Journal said.

The DoJ is seeking materials related to a wide range of licensing issues, including the two publishers’ efforts to withdraw their rights from ASCAP and BMI’s licensing agreements with Internet radio company Pandora Media Inc, the newspaper said, citing the people. (http://on.wsj.com/Uaeo9W)

The request, formally known as civil investigative demands, are part of the DoJ’s sweeping review of its rate-setting agreements with ASCAP and BMI, the Journal said.

ASCAP, BMI, Universal Music and Sony/ATV did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

Last month, the DoJ said it was considering changing or scrapping agreements it reached with two music licensing giants more than 70 years ago to freshen them up for the Internet age.

Any dispute over the cost of a license goes to “rate courts,” which are based in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Songwriters use music publishers to promote their works, and to do certain licensing tasks – for example, the licensing of “mechanical” rights, for the sale and distribution of recordings.

Publishers use BMI and ASCAP, both not-for-profit entities, to collectively license works for public performance to major music users like Pandora Media. (Reporting by Supriya Kurane in Bangalore; Editing by Gopakumar Warrier)

Sonic Possible Worlds: Hearing the Continuum of Sound

Sonic Possible Worlds: Hearing the Continuum of Sound


Inspired by its use in literary theory, film criticism and the discourse of games design, Salome Voegelin’s dazzling new book adapts and develops possible world theory in relation to sound. David Lewis’ Possible World is juxtaposed with Merleau-Ponty’s life-world, to produce a meeting of the semantic and the phenomenological at the place of listening. The central tenet of this book is that at present traditional musical compositions and contemporary sonic output are approached and investigated through separate and distinct critical languages and histories. As a consequence, no continuous and comparative study of the field – as exists in literary studies for example – is possible. Voegelin proposes an analytical framework that can access and investigate works across genres and times, and study them within a comparative context. As the discipline of sound studies gains momentum, Sonic Possible Worlds fills a need for a discourse of sound to contextualize and debate emerging sonic practices.
