    Howl, Reimagined

    I saw the best cameras of my generation destroyed by marketing, in colors, with wifi,
    desperately iterating new models for reviews by blogs, looking for an easy win,
    angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly retro body, high ISO starry dynamo in the machinery of night,
    who impoverished by GAS and hollow-eyed through pixel peeping, sat up editing in the supernatural brightness of IPS monitors, zooming to 100% and contemplating raw conversion,
    who bared their brains to Heaven in the forums and saw Recalcitrant trolls blasting the pixels their photographs illuminated,
    who passed through DPReview with radiant cool eyes hallucinating Superiority and Best Gear posturing among the scholars of uselessness,
    who were expelled from the posers for crazy & publishing actual artwork on the windows of the skull...

    I saw the best camera makers of my generation destroyed by marketing, in colors, with wifi, left profitless in a land of plenty...

    [again, apologies, Mr. Ginsberg -- I've just been howling about camera makers silliness lately, and thought of you, lol]

    The Author of HOWL

    This is minor- Allan is actually spelled Allen and he passed away in 1997...

    You know I spelled it right and then EDITED it and made it wrong because I thought it was Allan (should have checked). Yes, I know he's gone, but that doesn't mean he's not aware of this and shaking his head sadly, lol.

    Thanks. Since you posted that I'll leave it as is and folks can read your correction rather than make your post inexplicable, lol.
