The supermarket had a film and batteries aisle. I looked, no film.
I can buy film at Walmart or CVS, and I have also seen Lomography products sold at book stores and a few hipster-ish type clothing stores. I won't buy film at those places, though, because of the ridiculous price premium, but they are still options.
Well, I did get some Lomo roll film and a couple of packs of Instax a few months back when I saw them on the sale shelves at Barnes and Noble.
Strange thing to hate. My opinion is that it is digital technology that is putting pro photographers out of business. I loved film but, since I don't have to use it anymore, I don't.
No, Craigslist killing newspapers has affected Photojournalists in the News Paper industry.
Blogs and the Internet has affected magazines.
Old photographers resting on their laurels are putting themselves out of business.
Craig's list has killed newspapers? More likely the internet media have done that. We don't subscribe to newspapers any longer since the dog died. We get our news from TV and the internet. I don't think we are alone in that.
I get my news from the net. I rarely turn the tv on anymore for broadcast anything. Cut the cable like 7 years ago.
Probably a good move. I watch things like History Channel and Science Channel and sports events. I even watch some TV series reruns. Nothing on mainstream TV except for those sports events.
We have cable for internet service. And I have Amazon Prime. Wife has Netflix.
Around 7 years ago I was flipping channels and went around once and started again. Stopped at a Duke's of Hazard rerun! After about 5 min I awoke from my trance and realized I was watching 30 year old rerun. And it was the best thing on TV from over 100 channels. Time to get rid of cable! Wife was not too happy at first, it's worked out. I used to like Discovery, and History, and a couple more. But they started to get heavy with all these "reality" shows that have nearly the same style of editing. So, that was it! Was done with them. And really don't miss it. Watch less sports now too. Don't really miss it.
But recently C90 blank tapes, which is odd.
I find it a real bummer that film is so forgotten. I REALLY miss the days of going into Eckerd or Walgreens and getting processing.

Perhaps not as forgotten as people think: In High School Darkrooms, Shedding Light on a Vintage Craft
It's also still offered at my college and other schools in the 'burbs.
It's all about the "D" these days.
