The Place

Well, having finally gotten the new computer set up and hooked up to the internet, I borrowed my mother's digital camera and got a couple of pictures snapped of the apartment.First is the view from the entrance: CD-shelf on the left, some box left from the moving process, and then the desk, with various stuff on it. The new Mac mini is practically invisible in that pic, barely visible on the right next to the 19" CTR screen I got for cheap from a school-mate. I'm also going to get a retractable shelf to mount under the desk to keep the keyboard on, freeing up some space, and allowing me to have the MIDI-keyboard more centered. I've also got a poster coming that I'll put up on the wall behind the desk. (The desktop pic is Nagato Yuki from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, for those who are interested; vectored by yours truly.)
Here's the view from the corner opposing the door. Unmade bed on the left, a poster of a woman in kimono with a red umbrella on the wall, bookshelf on the right. Next to the bookshelf is a closet, which isn't that interesting. (The big shiny sphere is the lamp which is hanging a bit too low; I've lost count of how many times I've bumped my head into it.)

I must say that I'm really pleased with my new setup; the Mac mini is performing nicely thus far, though the real test will be when I start fooling around with Garageband. I haven't really felt inspired to do anything with it lately, but I'm guessing it's a side-effect of just having moved, getting used to the new surroundings. I'm also going to order a new piece of gear soon, a pair of headphones, the AKG K240S, which will hopefully allow me to get a better idea of how my tracks sound in the low end, and which also might come in handy for late-night music making/listening.

So far, living on my own has worked out splendidly.
