NPR news, tv news or nothing most of the time. Now...back in the 70's when I lived in L.A. I listened to Dr Demento in the wet darkroom.
I don't like PP all that much. Right now I have to do about 125 to 150 images for a Blurb book. I hate it. I did 50 images in 3 or 4 days. It feels like a never ending job. Each image is a one at a time job. Some of them may have over a dozen versions.
My personality wont let me do much else until the PP is done. Then I have to do book design. But I can take my time on that. But until I have the pix done, the book seems up in the air to me. After PP I print them all out and do a final revise. Then do a layout of the work prints for the design.
Luckily I was through writing for the books when I finished book #1. I wont have to write much until I get to book #10. With books # 2 to #9, I only have to write a 1 or 2 page intro and the rest is pix. I like that. I hate having to write. PP is of the utmost importance in any case.
Look at this example from a negative I just found last month after being lost for 40 years. (Nude warning) https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%27Left_Vintage_Silver_Gelatin_Print_-_Right_Inkjet_Print%27_Copyright_1973,_2013_Daniel_D._Teoli_Jr..JPG
OK, I was 19 when I did the wet print and not that great of a printer. The neg was terrible, underexposed and contrasty. Only light was the window. But even if Ansel Adams printed it, he is not going to get 2.5 hours of computer D&B into a 30 second exposure wet darkroom print.
