    S.Korea suddenly turned into "Land of Morning Virus'. Since the first Corona 19 case on Jan 20, it took nearly a month to reach 51 cases until Feb 18. The cases then doubled in one day to 104, with the first death on Feb 19, and have been increasing exponentially with 3,150 cases and 17 fatalities as of Feb 29. Nearly 85% of the cases centered around Daegu, 323km(201mi) Southeast of Seoul, that have 5.4 million people with high concentration of large auto suppliers. No auto suppliers have been shutdown yet because of the virus, but Hyundai had to stop its No.2 plant in Ulsan that produce Santafe, Pallisade and Genesis G80 SUV because of one paint shop employee with virus.

  • Nothing's Really Real Podcast: (Ep 70) Now It's Dark Movie Podcast

    In this longest episode I’ve released to date, I do a cross-over show with two of my favorite podcaster friends: Mike and Tim from the Now It’s Dark Movie Podcast. These guys have a very professional and smart movie podcast where they discuss, critique and analyze all aspects of film. In this cross-over episode, which will air on their channel as well as mine, we drink and debate movies … for three hours. It’s great. I love it.
     
    More specifically, we have a Nothing’s Really Real elimination tournament to decide what is the most undeniably good movie.

  • Film Camera Shopping in Seoul

    I remember when I first started into photography back in university. My dad gave me his old pentax spotmatic f to use for my first photography course. I was a little embarrassed as the other students had newer cameras that seemed so much cooler than mine. Little did I know that 20 years later that same camera would be a hot item on the streets of Seoul.

    I have to admit that I have purchased most of my film cameras from Ebay or through the various camera groups that I am in on facebook. However, when I saw my friend Noe Alonzo’s video on YouTube, it got me thinking. So I decided to head up to Seoul to see what I could find.

Some moved on to free software like Gimp others looked for an equally powerful replacement. The trouble is that up until now there has not really been a decent editor that could do all the things that Lightroom can do and still be affordable.
