TV & Real Estate and, oh, about that photography thing. Yeah. About that.

I got a huge ass tv (above, sitting next to the rikalov handle for scale) for no reason through dell's regifting holiday promotion. It wasn't supposed to come till March but it arrived last Friday and now it's 50" plasma is looming awkwardly in my room waiting for me to sell or use it for art.

So, open forum, would you

a. sell for $3,300 cash (food, gas, metrocard, a powerbook) or
b. use it for art, the baddest canvas evah--most of my work is video in some form, so i could get a lot of from this

Colby Caldwell's blog has turned in to a realty site. James Huckenpahler from covert city says the domain expired. Tell us it's backed up somewhere.

Following Nikon's announcement last week to discontinue it's film cameras, Konica Minolta is doing the same as reported by today's Post. Pretty much a nonissue for the bloggers.

Weekend will rock. It starts with Fraser Georgetown's last opening and caps with a Jiha Moon et al DCAC panel discussion on Sunday. Job wise an interview for an AAC curatorial internship is Thursday. Unpaid for the winter. That'd be nice.

c. Keep it and watch TV on it... periodically use it to show your videos.

I can't fathom selling the thing! And realistically I doubt you'll get $3,300 for it if it costs $3,500 new. Though $2,700 or so still is a lot of money!

How did you get it? Was it free?

yeah, who would buy it? ebay? then they have to pay the extra bling bling to ship it. and since your portable art device got broken (sob sob) you kind of need one. it could be a gift from... dell. although would the burned in parts effect it at all? like if it was black there all the time and people were staring, they might notice it...

no burn in thank goodness, just took a little while to go away. if it burns in a bit you can do something called plasma conditioning . i bet it's good for your hair. jh says he has a powerbook . . .. . . . ....... .

man. sell it to some poor sucker on craigslist and make them come pick it up (no shipping!), buy a perfectly nice tv with a third of the money, then use the rest to eat for a couple of months. it'll help with your unpaid internships there. but i like to eat, so maybe that's just me.
