Photodude: Rants About Missing Pizza, The Message Board and His Fav Songs and Flicks
By Photodude

This month, the Photodude returns from a trip to watch The Skins Game golf Event in Indio, CA (a real no-wheresville man!), where he fished a point-and-shoot from a water hazard and promptly auctioned it off on Ebay to finance his next surfing trip.

The Dude was kind enough to pull his VW van over at an Internet café just off Highway 101 to check in.

-------

Whassup, friends?

Last I saw many of you was at Bert's bitchin' Workshop and Luau in Manhattan Beach, where it was all good except for those college students who helped themselves to my pizza in the lobby on Friday night. Bastards! You'll get yours, man. It's called karma, and when you don't get the internship you want you just think of the Photodude's pizza, awright?

That all said, The Workshop was bitchin. For me, aside from sharing a bowl with the surfer dude volleyballer on the 9th green after the first breakout, the highlight was all the great speakers (especially Robert Beck) and also -- wait, I was kidding about the bowl, dudes -- seeing all the promising portfolios on hand. Although you all did look like geeky extras from Hawaii Five-O...

This month brought a ton of mail, so let's get to the ol' mailbag....

---------

Hey Dude,

What's up with all Sportsshooter.com Message Board? Man, have all the good topics been exhausted already? What's up with all these movie and song topics? Dude, what's next?

Signed,

Damned If I Know.

Dear DIIK,

Dude, you hit the nail right on the head. Heh-heh. I said, "head." For once, the Dude doesn't have the answer, but I do know what I don't hope to see:

TOP 5 MSG BOARD TOPICS THE DUDE NEVER HOPES TO SEE BUT IS SURE HE WILL IN THE NEXT 2 WEEKS

1. If Elmer Fudd was a photographer, would he have worked for a newspaper or magazine?

2. Which celebrity would make the best photo assistant?

3. Why does Ralphie on "A Christmas Story" want a "Genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Combine Action Air Rifle with Scope and Thing That Tells Time" when he could have asked for a Speed Graphic?

4. If the Heatmiser from "The Year Without a Santa Claus" was a shooter, would have shot Canon or Nikon?

5. What's your favorite Aesop's Fable about photography?
