@lain with this particular lens, I can get a square crop from the full sensor with no trouble. The image circle diameter is approximately full width.

In practical terms, it's a 35mm and I can take a perfectly grammable square selfie with it, but in aps-c mode I can't fit my hair and chin in the frame at the same time.

Saving money and weight by putting an aps-c lens on my full frame camera. Works quite well actually, with just a bit of crop to cut the corners. Don't fall for the lies of Big Lens!

@msherman64 I don't think the bulbs I have are particularly good, but I stuck them all behind paper/linen shades and things look decent. (I do have one glass fixture, and never turn it on because the colors are ghastly.)

It'll be a few years before I finish up the pack I bought, so I guess I'll see what's available then. LEDs were pretty expensive the last time I decorated.

A lot of ongoing series suffer from scope creep. All the heroes level up, there's a new big bad, new unexplored territory opens up over yonder.

The Wire stands out as doing a good job maintaining its setting. Each season has a different perspective and narrative, but it doesn't go crazy. McNulty doesn't level up to the FBI in season 3, then prevent a terrorist strike on the white house in season 4. Characters fade from view; there's not a compulsive tracking of everyone that was ever featured.
