Kotobukiya Colossus

Kotobukiya make some very cool models and highly crafted pieces of art for their Comic and Anime fan. In my case I have been a huge fan of Colossus from the X-Men for a very long time. I always thought that he was nearly invincible with his Adamantium Skin and size, I always felt that they didn’t give him a big enough role in the movies, not just the core X-Men team, they have others to choose from who can make X-Men an even darker story.

Well after seeing a few models from Colossus over the years, this was the perfect one, slightly more on the modern design of Colossus from the more recent X-Men and his body and head are proportionate. I love the expression on his face, makes him look even more Bad Ass. The perfect spot on my shelf I see him when ever I walk into my office. At this rate I’m going to need a museum for all these models.

Aviator Wing Desk

This is the definition of 50s sexy, I love this desk and how retro it looks, it was inspired by the bent wing of a plane. I have always been interested in furniture made out of airplane parts, and this desk is an amazing piece. Built from a hardwood frame surrounded by polished aluminum patchwork, the uncommon desk has a genuine, surprising metal exterior with exposed screws. I really love it, it would be the perfect desk to that unique room, and for $2000 it isn’t bad at all, the chair is called the spitfire (based on the british fighter plane) and it costs $995. What an amazing job by Restoration Hardware.

Office Reorganization

CableManagement

Cable management is a headache that I have to deal with, and its one of the major problems that I have to deal with it. After some time I’m gonna reorganize my machines and all the connections since there are a few redundant items that I need to get rid off. I want to run all the wires together to make sure they all fit perfectly instead of the gridlock that I get to behind my desk.

Now I want to upgrade from my 22″ inch screens to the new Dell 27″ inch screens which are amazing. But I have to email the manufacturer to see if the Ergotron dual screen mount can left the weight of each.

Then I have a lot of CDs & DVDs in storage, the DVDs I want to keep but the CDs I honestly don’t want to keep. And I’m too damn lazy to rip them to the computer. So I have to figure out what I want to do with them. I only buy a few CDs every 6 months now, but the ones I have are really old and I only wanted one or two tracks from them.

Spotlight Desk

A simple very appealing piece of furniture, no complications with this desk. A desk like this would be in an area where I wouldn’t use my computer, some to write rather then have your computer sit on it. A desk like this makes me want to draw or write, or sit there with my laptop until the battery died. It would also need a cool chair to complement it. A large 58″ x 28″ to lay all your paperwork and items, I would have another desk as the computer desk and this is the brainstorming desk.

Computer Routine

Some people tend to sit on their computer before sleeping or using it as soon as they wake up, I do both. I think I’m addicted to my machines, its a funny routine I go through before regular browsing. Every person has a routine, I tend to have mine, I check torrents being downloaded to the server, then checking my downloads and whats left to be downloaded. As soon as I’m done checking my emails, posts, and regular surfing, I start to organize my downloads. I extract multiple files, and start moving the extracted files to the server and during this period the resources of the PC are pretty much fully used. I leave the PC for about 1.5 hours to finish up all that I’m moving. Its very satisfying to get everything organized, feels like your day is productive and I like  to make sure my connection is fully utilized.
