I'd shoot test charts, brick walls, and the inside of my lenscap.

One of these days I'm going to take it as an artistic challenge to make interesting art out of the typical measurebator subjects. Not sure yet how I'll pull it off, though I've got a few ideas....

That's a great idea. It reminds me of a time back in school. We had a list of subjects that were so cliche that they were off limits to shoot. One classmate took it upon himself to combine them all in very creative ways. It was one of the best, or at least most memorable, pieces in the class.

I'd love to see what you would come up with using charts and brick walls and color chips...

Of course not with the last roll of Kodachrome. I think the right person had access to that.

My dog, my horse, and my cat.

I've finished up personal stock of several brands, so this is no big deal. However ... I miss my AGFA  :'( !!!
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

I'm not shooting mine, it's sitting right next to the last Twinkie.

The Twinks are coming back. Kodachrome isn't!

I think you might be best served not calling them twinks.

I know it's not really answering the question, but I don't think I'd use it. Non of the (commercial) pictures that I produce now could have been shot and viewed on film.

Digital has freed photography from the shackles of film.  :). Unfortunately it has also devalued it enormously.  :(

Very true ... I still remember cringing at the cost of developing film and seeing several of my shots were useless but I used to pay a lot more attention to how I was making an image ... but now I find myself not as careful, I guess it is the blessing or curse of PP ... but I still prefer digital, coz its easier and cheaper :-[

This depends on whether you develop the film yourself, which film you are using, how many pictures you take etc.

I no longer use film cameras ... been a long time (I think 2002 was the last) but when I used to shoot film it was around 50 rolls a year.

I think this is really wide open for debate, and I'd fall on the side of digital improving photography immensely. For every person who takes a crappy picture, there are people like me who will take 10 crappy pictures as tests, then use that as a basis for one very good image -- and the 10 crappies vanish with a delete key. And as I recall, they guy who shot that last roll of K did just that, using digital images to get his film image just right.
