Most designers you might meet will have some of the most high-end creative stuff known to humankind – 8+ megapixel digital cameras, cell phones capable of making 2+ MP video, play mp3 and wma files, mainly Apple computers capable of rendering industry standard 3D and effects, tabs, laser stuff, photo printers, film scanners, etc, etc, etc. However, I would be one of the rare (I’m guessing here, based on experience) designers you might meet who has a camera only capable of 300 kilopixels (T610), a PC with a gig of ram, 3ghz CPU, and a whopping 80 gigs of HD space, and of course only 128 megs of PCI Express video. Everything else is BoB. My DVD drive isn’t even mine, and it doesn’t burn stuff properly!
What I mean is that I don’t spend thousands of dollars to create the stuff I need/want to create. I can do the same job or better with what I have. People seem to think you always need something better and more powerful. Like the other night, Amie asked me to hook her up with a new Mac laptop. Why? Cuz all her other designers use Macs, and she’ll need a Mac to display images and other media to her clients. I thought, “They’re universal files – AI, PDF, PSD, and so on – so why do you need a $3000 Mac laptop again?”
I got camera crazy with my cell phone cam a couple of hours ago…
^^ Yes, that’s my Dell 17″ with what’s her face on my desktop. It’s from the anime Last Exile. That blue window is Winamp playing some techno songs from the Sports Car GT soundtrack. Note the time in the last image.
^^ I love my udder cup. Still don’t know where she got it from, and in such a short time too!
^^ Before my shower… Yeah, I’m quite slender for my height, and that clock in the background is about an hour late. I call it Leeman’s Mean Time, or LMT for short. 8]
^^ Reminds me of a ‘joke’ Ed (Wong) once said to Albert after watching The Eye (horror flick). They found out that there was a second part to the movie, and Ed joked something like, “What’s it called? The OTHER Eye!” [laughs] You might not really get it unless you were actually there. 8]
^^ My T610 appreciates its own picture too!
^^ Sheila said she likes my boyish face. Seems like more Caucasian women dig that sort of thing for Asian descendent men. Why is that? Do I look docile?
^^ The last two of my brother Edmond. Not only does he look twice my size, but he also look 50% older than I do. He’s also known to be double in cuteness too! 8]
^^ A legit Pooh bear!
^^ Wind-up Robot. He’s the little guardian that watches over me while I sleep or have sex… What a pervert… 83
^^ That’s the thing what squeeks!
^^ Yes… Only Albert and June would know why the McLaren’s right door broke off.
