|The dowel used, the film winds into the grooves|
After all of us successfully got our film into the canister and closed it we started the developing process. The whole thing takes about an hour to do all the different steps with the chemical but its a 3 hour class once a week so we have plenty of time. We successfully did all the chemical processes, hung our film to dry, then cut it and slid it into a protective envelope. Next week we're going to get to actually develop pictures. I can't wait!
That night Becca and I ventured to this thing called a Headphone Disco. It was recommended by one of Becca's flatmates and was being held in the Queen Margaret Student Union. We decided to be adventurous and checked it out. And let me tell you, it was a blast!! The idea behind a headphone disco is that everyone wears headphones that the DJ broadcasts the music into. This way there isn't as much noise pollution for those living near the clubs. We were a little confused at first because we didn't realize there were two stations being broadcast so we'd see some people rocking out and had no idea why because the song we heard was nothing like what they seemed to be hearing. We finally found the switch that changed the channels in the headphones and liked having the option of songs. We did however really enjoy one of the DJs in particular. He just played a lot of amazing songs. We were there for almost 3 hours and were not bored once. We didn't know all of the songs but it didn't really matter because no one could hear us if we were singing the wrong words. That's another great part about these clubs, you can shout whatever you want and sing as badly as you want and no one can really hear you do it. It was such a great experience and I highly recommend that everyone try it at least once.
