Photography for Perverts

2004-02-22 05:00:17.992136+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

Damn, just when I'd sworn off buying books, along comes Thomas Roche's test-drive of Charles Gatewood's Photography for Perverts, and part two of the article. I believe I'm going to have to ask my regular bookstore to order me a copy of Photography for Perverts tomorrow.

I started to order one.. but I refuse to deal with such BAD shopping cart technology. And besides, after looking at their titles.. a large truck would be showing up at the door and I'd be broke. I've got to finish my 'cybrmall.com e-commerce project'.. and get these guys as customers.

Have you got a bookstore that'll order for you? I notice that when I go on a book buying binge authors and topics that the store formerly didn't carry start to show up on the shelves. Maybe finding a local bookstore that's starting to lean the right way and convincing them to order it for you could be a step in the right direction.

And heck, if the clerk is cute maybe you've got a prospective subject. I know half the fun of ordering such things through Whyte's Booksmith has been the raised eyebrows and slightly embarassed smiles...

Formerly spam advertising a Passion Party[Wiki] consultant. While we've no problem with advertising people who participate in the community or are friends of those who do, we will not stand for those who think it's appropriate to fill up servers with advertising without in some way paying for it.

In fact, had this particular person simply left the wiki definitions in place and not started spamming regular comments, I would have left the page intact.

Ah yes, [one of] the signature element[s] of spam[Wiki]: "...toper wear parties...". That's tupperware[Wiki], dear.

Ah, but she can't say that because then she'd be tromping all over their trademark. So she's gotta be underhanded about it. Another trait of the truly reputable small businessperson.

Oh. I'd never considered that would be why they'd do it.
