I've Made the BBC News
Yeah, it was bound to happen I guess. One of the pictures that I took of Gail Trimble on University Challenge has ended up in a video on the BBC News website. Great! but are two reasons why I'm annoyed: for one thing, it's a bloody picture I took of the TV screen with my phone! I hate when people do that, especially on YouTube. I could have a thousand first-generation high resolution photographs, all shot on a Hasselblad, and they'd never get noticed! Secondly, and much more depressing, is the fact that they linked my image with a piece about the hatred towards Gail Trimble. Oooh I'm fuming here! The picture is embedded in a third-party facebook profile, that actually doesnt bother me all that much, but linking it along with my image to the hatred... thats a big dirty Grrrr @ the BBC right there.
Ah well, I guess I did say I kinda liked the picture for it's artistic merit anyway, what with all the sparkly noisey bits and all... and it was just that Facebook entry that was being mean and not my image... Fuck it sure, I'm on the BBC!

[EDIT: Oh and by the way, is anyone else loving the recursive irony of all the camera's taking pictures of pictures?]
