Throwback Thursday! Remembering Mac Talk!

I needed a part in Woodland hills this week so I decided to drop by my old employer, Mac Talk, Inc.  Unfortunately, it could not be found.  Apparently, it closed up shop unceremoniously and I never knew.  I had a long and sorted history with the company stretching back across several owners (and decades).  Here are a few pictures I found.  What ever happened to Moe and Shilla?  or Steve?MacTalk Storefront Continue reading “Throwback Thursday!

My dad and his Performa 6500!

My dad and his Apple Performa 6500 This priceless gem I found only recently.  My father with his Apple Performa 6500.  Not sure exactly when this was taken, but I love the Sherlock shirt he’s got on.  This was half a dozen towers towers ago for him.  Dad’s always loved technology.  He got me started in all this.  Thanks dad.

 

Throwback Thursday – be3n’s boyhood home!

be3n boyhood room 4upI found more pictures of my old bedroom recently.  Below, I cleared out my bed to install a pull out sofa (seen in next frame).  It turned my high school room into quite the hangout.  Also on display were some art and other decorations from that era.  If you look closely, you can find Pez, impressionists paintings, comics, Magic packs, and a Sun optical mouse/mousepad.  I wonder what others will find.  My room’s walls were quite the collage.  I’ve added more pictures including this 4up from my Nickelodeon Photo Blaster.  Can you find Audio/Video tapes next to the original Nintendo?  enjoy.
