i've haven't been blogging for a minute because i have been geeking out... working on this, my new macbook:
it's a bit of cognitive dissonance for me, as i have issues with the environmental impacts of computers, but i assuage my guilt by buying refurbished and from small retailers. also, what work one does with a computer has the potential to offset the (very real) harm done during the manufacturing process. not that i'm sure i accomplish that, but it is a goal.
in more light news, i found some great little thingies to spruce up leopard:
interfacelift has great collections of icons including the samurai set and black set used above. you can switch the (stark and cold) icons that come with leopard with a nice little app called candybar. interface also has wallpapers, including the steven miller photo above. i usually make my own, but i don't have any for this wide aspect ratio yet. i might try to upload some of my images to that site. it seems like a nice piece of free audience/advertising.
i have some more exciting music and food posts coming this week, if i can stop geeking out!
