show and tell: your computer

Boring?
Perhaps.
But I am hoping that it will be fun to see people's computers in situ, as it were.
I love looking into people's homes and lives, that's one of the reasons I started show and tell.

We actually have a few computers, I am embarrassed to say.

Middle has a set up in the basement. For the music business.
g4
The old family G4 is hooked up to this stuff...

machines

for the recording of this stuff...

guitars

He and his brother have released two cds together and Middle is always down there fussing with things.

Around the corner, sort of, K has the set up we call the big guy.

g5

A G5. With programs and gajillioin hard drives that I don't know the name of on it.
I am always startled by the size of the screens.
Since christmas, when the big boys got video iPods, there is always someone down there, downloading music or video - hence the stacks of cds.
Middle and Youngest take turns playing World Of Warcraft here and K edits from time to time.

I have the new baby.
An iBook G4.
12 inch.
And I love it.

laptop

And a couple of weeks ago, I used a gift card that I got from my MIL and bought this!
laptop bag
It's a funky crewel embroidered tote that my laptop fits inside perfectly.

Leave a comment if I can go look at your computer, please --
and feel free to include accessories!

Love your computer and your little tote for it. The other computers make me realize there is much much that I don't know about computers haha.

So this morning I set up my dear new computer with my darling new tote bag, and then... the camera died. Apparently it needs something something known as "batteries". Stupid camera.

But now, I'm thoroughly embarassed of my tote bag, because it isn't nearly as adorable as yours is. And I was previously so proud!

Anyway, my camera is charging its stupid batteries, and I'll go up tonight.

My envy being sent your way on the tote ; )

And your talented boys! Two released CDs?! WOWZER!

"A FEW computers," Blackbird?!
Computers litter our home. It's amazing, really. I posted my favorite computer picture ever a few days ago so I won't do it again. Here it is.

Mine's up...my brother's got a similar computer set up to your husband's with the two screen thing. Frightens me.

I want to come play with Middle on that machine with the music! That is so VERY cool.
sueeeus said…
That tote IS delicious. Kudos to your boys for following through with the music passion. I have a menagerie of instruments and equipment, but haven't followed through. I can probably play a triangle, if need be.

I'm so glad you're doing this. I'm an incredible stickybeak. Missed S&T this week, but I can't wait to give it a go next Friday.

Can I tell you how envious I am that you have Anthropologie over there? I still dream about my visit to the Santa Monica store 7 years ago.
