For the pictures, I originally had this brilliant idea that I’d take photos of everyone and put them in these little pulp horror settings so that it would be different from everyone else’s post. I started out with a good head of steam, but after a while, had to resort to stealing Bossy’s technique for her photoblogging instead. So, that’s why they’re so inconsistent. Some of the photos are after the jump, and you can see all 300 of the photos, in an unsorted, jumbled mess, on Flickr.
And that’s it. Although, I do have a couple of videos of people doing karaoke that I might be able to be persuaded to post . . .
