Spring... uh... cleaning?
So I'm renovating my little studio building, with the plan of eventually returning to my hut in the not-too-distant future. I've been inside our house now for a few months, and I vastly prefer it. Unfortunately my long-suffering wife would vastly prefer that I go somewhere far away. So, needs must, as they say...
In any event, in order to make the space air-tight (and thus less subject to the whims of environment) I need to _clean_ it first. Since I took out all the gear I need to work in something of a hurry, and I've just been using the building as a staging area for snowboarding, skateboarding, biking, and home improvement since, it is something of a disaster. So I spent the better part of today moving shit around.
The problem with that is that I keep finding fun things I forgot I had, stuff I bought at a yard sale or something, threw on the Pile, and promptly erased from the higher regions of my brain. This picture shows roughly 1% of what I'm dealing with. Everything in the photo with the exception of the little Vox amp, the guitar pedals, and the AudioMedia II card inside that IIci was purchased at a yard sale or thrift store. I've had no end of amusement today plugging various things in, fucking with TurboSynth, and generally getting nothing done.
(And before you ask, yes, I am _exactly_ the sort of person that would just happen to have a Mac II video -> VGA adapter just lying about in case I want to use an LCD monitor with an old Mac. I mean, you never know when that sort of thing would come in handy, right?)
But that's about the most ghetto picture I can put together of what could theoretically be described as studio equipment. I suppose I could find some old Marantz speakers to fill out the picture; what I really should have done was stack all my Realistic effects units on top of the Sears guitar amps. What's your most ghetto stuff? Photos if you've got 'em.
