Do it yourself
A bit that wont end up in the Stylus interview...
Graham [laughing - in fact we're both basically pissing ourselves throughout]; So you’re a PC man, yeah? Wicked, cos I fucking hate Macs so much.
Nick; How come?
Graham; Overpriced, underpowered, total style over substance isn’t it. It’s like I built my own studio and built my own computer to record stuff onto, it’s all hand done - I just love the PC thing…
Nick; Macs look nice, the iPod’s a useful gizmo but that’s it – a mate of mine said, and caught the Apple ethos in a nutshell, “they’d rather give stuff away free than sell it at a reasonable price”.
Nick; Plus anyone I know who can actually fix a computer deals with PCs…
Graham; Totally! Like, my girlfriend lives next door and there’s her and loads of graphic designers round here with their Macs, and as soon as anything goes wrong they’re total panic; the idea of a new hard drive or upgrading your motherboard scares them!
Nick; “No, no! Buy a whole new one!!”
Graham; Haha, yeah!
