tricky++

Maxinquaye IMHO is a masterpiece and Pre-Millenmium Tension is the sound of beautiful psychosis. I remember a reviewer at the time writing that "the best guitar player in the world right now is Tricky with a sampler" and I thought that pretty much summed it up.

$2250 for 1000 s.f. in Brooklyn. Probably $750K to buy a comparable place.

But you can't always put a price on never driving, everything you need to live your life within 5 blocks of the place you live. 15 minute commute to work. Cool people all around... NY rules.

If you're a programmer you have even more reasons to love OSX. Check out Darwin Ports. Over 3000 open source projects that can be installed from the command line with one command. Free text editors, browsers, network tools, security tools, everything you can imagine. http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/

Stayed in this place about 4 times. Its nothing great but clean and the neighborhood is cool - its a short walk to both the Bastille district (11th) and very short walk to r. Oberkampf which is a great neighborhood (Menilmontent) with lots of music. Last time was about 3 years ago so hopefully its s...

holy shit - the schedule at that place is incredible. Marc Ribot solo in a few weeks? Steve Buscemi reading Beat poetry?

I guess that's why I pay $2K a month rent.

the Mexican Fender's from around that time period are nice - I bought one for my wife (then g-friend) when she thought she wanted to dabble in some bass awhile back.

I myself have been playing a '77 J-Bass for the past 15 years.

PJ - I switched for the same reason - just looking forward to a culture change after a lot of years on win. Don't forget to factor in a bit of a learning curve in moving over to the Mac life. Things may seem a bit frustrating at first even though OSX is by far a more user friendly environment but in...

I'm in the same boat as you - wanted to dip my toe in the Mac water before really committing and didn't want to wait for the macTels. I went with the 12" iBook b/c of price - with Applecare and extra RAM (don't get less than a gig) it was still 1500 USD new which when you upgrade the warranty and RA...
