Gregg, I really like my Ikea desk. Too bad it didn't work out for you. It holds all of my computer stuff and all of my laundry supplies. My laundry area is on the other side of the shelves.

 

A game for y'all: There is one weird item that appears in both my photo and Toger's. Whoever guesses what I'm talking about wins all the tea in China!

Ahahahaha, I'd like to say that that's really cool but instead I'll just carry on laughing.

All the tea in China you say...?

Oh, Gregg's right!

In Jen's pic you can only see the bottom. In my pic, you see the top! I never would have noticed it if Jen hadn't mentioned it.

And it's a fish. From Big Fish Games.

You'll have to talk to Gregg about that. It's his tea now.

You guys are way too organized for me.  There is no way I am showing my game space.  Hint: my space makes Toger's pic look like spartan village.

Right now I've got, let's see, a stack of 6-8 game boxes/unboxed DVDs on my right, in front of a little green clerk's lamp, in front of my grad school's mug filled with pens/mechanical pencils, in front of 2 sets of speakers (1 for pc 1 for ps3), then, toward middle, can of air duster (mostly to torture Ben with), 2 sets of headphones (ps3/pc), little dishes of odds & ends, including sea shells, pc screws, a few stray smaller found toys, etc., lots of stray pens, a glass of mostly-melted ice water, to left LOTS of game boxes and unboxed DVDs, assorted bills, a power cord apparently left over from when I built a new pc a couple of weeks ago, some envelopes, a box of Cars band-aids, 2 more speakers, a photo of me as a 3 year old that Ben keeps thinking is him, a screwdriver or two, uh…other stuff underneath that pile I don't want to disturb, then I have another desk to my left holding a printer, even more game boxes/unboxed DVDs, paper towels, a little green frog thingy that's supposed to be used to wipe pc screens but mostly gets chewed on by Jordan, a magnifying glass, a tape dispenser, a Previews catalog I need to toss, a few notepads, a fax machine, a water bottle, a toy red jet with a broken wing, a tape measure, a digital camera….

Plus!  That doesn't include all the junk in the shelves above my desk or the closet-full of games and the 2 shelves of books, games, 2600 mags, who knows what else behind me….

Now, see, if you didn't read that whole list, or even if you did, you might understand why there is no way I am taking a photo of it, much less posting the photo online.  Just imagine a miniature tornado blasting through and that describes my game area.

And at work!  Oh lord.  Case files, trial transcripts, old reports, calendars, 2 monitors (!), lots of pictures of Ben/Jordan, on and on.

I'm functional in clutter.  It'd be nice to have a maid, but everyone tells me they have to clean up before the maid comes.  So I don't really see the point.

Thanks Jen & Gregg [Image Can Not Be Found]

 

haha,
it's been neat looking at everyone's game spaces!  The pic on my
desktop is one from Daniel Dociu, the guy from Lewis' interview articles on the
front page (specific pic at http://cghub.com/images/view/15979/).  He is
a mind-blowing artist.

That's a nice tidy setup Scout -- looks like you have some separates speakers there (on li'l stands!)? How are they linked to your PC? Love your desktop wallpaper as well, looks familiar...

"My dolly has drugs and a knife" -- great picture.

I hate clowns.  They are not to be trusted.  And they're just plain creepy.

Thanks.

The framed posters above the desk are actually hand painted t-shirts a friend of mine bought in Times Square  in 1992 from a crazy woman called Scary Mary. I believe this was back when Times Square was still funky and not yet cleaned  up for tourists.  The one on the left is "Clown With Weapons" and the one on the right is "My Dolly Has Drugs and a Knife". Mary apparently had a thing for knives.

The speakers are ELT525Ms from the now defunct AV123 audio company. The 525s were the back speakers for an AV 5.1 set but they are great "near-sound" speakers for a desktop system though they are power-hungry and not very efficient. I  power them with a Dared MP5 tube amp w/ built in DAC. I also have a little X-sub (also from AV123) hooked into the system for room shaking explosions. 

 

Below is a pic of the Dared. It really adds a rich "tube" sound that warms up the cold digital computer sound. It's a USB out from the computer into the Dared, then into the X-sub and from the sub into the speakers.

That's a really cool-looking piece of equipment.

I know practically nothing about audio, can't tell Coke from Pepsi, and am as willing to drink Natural Ice as I am a nice Newcastle. But even my limited senses can tell how pretty vacuum tubes are.

My last girlfriend thought it was cute. So do I. The back tube is a totally useless thing that generates two green lines that get closer and closer as the volume increases. I'm a sucker for the warm orange glow of vacuum tubes. Plus you can pull them out and plug them back in and pretend you can hear the difference. Anymore you can reproduce the bloated, distorted sound of a tube with modern software and a chip but it doesn't look as cute. Priorities. Gotta have priorities.

Wow, that thing looks really ... cool, for lack of a more appropriate word. Looks like a toaster from the future.

The Dared is a nice blend of past and future.  USB...and is that Bakelite??
