the lost film

http://www.alansondheim.org/photo2.jpg

the lost film rediscovered, yet in one of the directories on the
desktop of the laptop itself, but of what era, what work, has it
been processed before, and then these photos! they were fairly
early with the fungal outcropping, what has occurred where,
where did they come from, where are we going? i see a date of
september 2nd associated with them, but perhaps never then, or a
remix from earlier? and the lost film appeared entirely from
somewhere else, but then the style, who knew? i think second
life, not macgrid, but who knows? stranger and stranger. and
what were the occurrences here, and why does everything, film
and image, appear so SUCCULENT?
