Are we in peril of creating yet another Internet meme?!


Steve
I think it is too late for that.

Memes abound.

Is this that pregnant pause where everyone is leaning forward on the couch, intensely watching the screen, anticipating the rise of the hociR from the grave?

I won't buy a K-3 because I just spent my budget on a K-30 & 18-135WR :-) No other new toys for me for a while

First it was me. Then it was normhead. Now it is stevebrot.

One by one we are being assimilated.

I don't have the cash to succumb to the siren song of hociR because mine is locked up in stocks and bonds and mutual funds!

And I am quickly going backwards so I will not be assimilated for awhile. I just bought a second K10d. I am sure there was a reason I needed two of them but I am not quite sure I remember exactly what it was right now.

Besides I am being quietly stunned into silence by the image quality from my wife's new Sigma DP2M. She just finished a 16x20 print of a yellow tulip that is absolutely mesmerizing. But she actually knows how to take good photographs so I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise.

Assimilated?

I am (not so) slowly being assimilated by inflation, monthly bills and daily expenses.

Oh, and something about that new K5IIs I picked up a couple months ago.

And the Byers telescope drive I just bought.

And the race car is calling my name. Has anyone priced race gas lately?

No, the hociR shall not take hold of me anytime soon.

Nor me... there are only two chances that I will fall prey to the hociR: fat and slim

Do you mean a big chance and a little chance?

Love that song. It says it all.

So, do you think the hociR got to Lovett?

No doubt! I've only seen him 6 times. Just can't resist.

Dunno about LL, Large Band and the hociR, but I Leo Kottke for sure has always has some kind of inexplicable majic going on.
