I make it a point to print photos maybe once a year. Given the rate media have gone obsolete in recent years - film, magnetic tape, floppies, CD-ROMS - it makes sense to have the shots you really want in a format that's readily viewable without the need for electricity or processing.

I put all my pics on facebook, instagram and twitter. But I am not naive to the fact that I didnt build this construct, I am only a guest who can be booted at any moment, much like life itself. The pictures, thoughts and ideas cant be viewed as my property or I'd go insane whenever the ones in control decide to take it all for themselves. I accept how powerless I am and i am trying to grapple with the futility of effort in a world that was built for someone else long ago to benefit a lineage that I do not beling to.

Why don't they release all the stuff that was on tv (especially from the 1970s to 1990s) so people can download it for a reasonable price ($2 or $3 a video) there's a lot of stuff I saw on tv in the past (when I was a kid or teen, or 20's etc) which I'd like to see again but its not available (even on youtube), it sucks the way they only release a handful of things usually you see they just release a little stuff (usually only about a handful of "BIG Name" celebrities (and show that over and over and over and over and over again) but nothing else, they should release everything that was on tv from the 70s to the 90s and let people download anything they want to see again for a reasonable fee ($2 or $3 for a video).
