This is the comp I bought at Narwal for home use: HQ ATX midi-tower , VIA Apollo PRO 133 motherboard, Intel Celeron 466 mhz., 64 MB SDRAM, Matrox G400 16 MB, Sony 3,5″ FDD, AOpen DVD9632 6/32, 15 GB HD, Windows EURO keyboard, Logitech Wheelmouse, Xitel Storm Platinum soundcard, MidiLand MLI 270 3D speakers, LG 17 inch FLATRON monitor. Okay, so it ain’t a racehorse, but it’ll do nicely. Hopefully it will arrive soon so I can hook my MD up to the optical link on the soundcard! I feel a bit silly now.
Prol is getting just a leeeeetle tired [SNIP]
Prol done bad. This space edited by a better mood. (Over at Metafilter, Matt expresses my sentiments exactly.)
Stefano Giovannini is a photographer from Milan that we used to hang out with in Dublin. His work has appeared on Sonic Youth and Mike Scott record sleeves. We met him on Windmill Lane and drank lots of Guinness together in a bar called Docker’s. He could down a pint in 2 seconds. His camera was battered and he’d a box on him that he would sometimes open to show his amazing photos to us and recount his adventures with The Pogues, The Waterboys, U2 and many others. He had a great rapport with artists, which shows in his work. We used to write but you know how things goes. These days he’s well represented on line. But perhaps someone should build him a proper domain.
Talk about mp3s and the thrill of buying albums on the prolboard.
