Roid Rage: Arizona March Song, 2007

I was a semi-proud Arizona resident from January 1992 to August 2002. There, I completed all of the schooling there is between grade 6 and my bachelors degree at the University of Arizona, and made some of the best friends I've had. When I went back to visit Arizona this May, I stumbled on an old polaroid camera which I had used to use to quell teenage roid rage in the late 1990s. There was also a small packet of film that was well-over 10 years past the expiration date. Given my fondness for expired goods and chance opportunity, I suddenly felt obligated to plastically record various aspects of this trip, documenting all of the important things (my friends, family and locales) that instantly seemed quite distant on account of the immediately ancient polaroiding effect of the expired film.
