Why do i love Perth?

Why do i love Perth?

well for a start maybe ‘love’ is too strong a word.. and even though its getting there i know better than to get swept off my feet/head and jinx the rest of my time here.

But here is one good reason why i ‘love’ Perth.  I don’t know if its the people that are more generous, or if it is cos they price objects (i mean 2nd hand ones) according to its value to them – meaning if they had a car that was 20 years old, but it had heaps of sentimental memories/stains/smells, they’d price it like a brand new Mercedes.  On the flip side, if they’ve got a treasure, but really havent got use for it, they’d price it as they felt it was; which is what i think i got here.   Friends, meet the National(Matsushita) TR-5010A TV/radio made in Japan.  A quick search on the internet shows that this piece of audio-visual equipment dates back to the early 1980s.  and is still amazingly good as new.  Where an ebay seller could and probably would price this at USD 200-300, i got this piece for AUD20.

my new toy.

here are some examples of the kind of graphic visuals that can be obtained from this beauty.







Obviously taking a video would make so much more sense.  but i would cover up my technical/internet inadequacy by saying a picture is best seen live, and any representation of it would just be .. blasphemous.

The sound is amazing too.  it has a speaker box on the top that produces good quality sound.  low-fi and sweetly vintage.  I will put together something soon and put it up.  maybe on the myspace site.

till next time.

Jay, if you’re reading this we are going to Belmont to shop.  i think they have much stuff you’d be interested in.. not erm musically though.  (no cymbals/drums/thrones sorry…)
