Interesting that apple aren’t going to service computers that’ve been in smokey environments now. I read that they say the internal components get covered in a goo that stops the machine from venting heat. Don’t remember if they said ‘goo’ exactly but whatever the wording was, it left a pretty vivid little picture in my head, and a nasty one.

This is a 1981 Bullet, fender guitar.

I was pretty keen on buying it a while back but the chumps wouldn’t post overseas. These aren’t _cool_ yet but I predict they will be. Something about the wear on this, the chipping of the paint on the pickguard, and the combination of colours reminds me of an old plane that’s crashed into the side of a foggy south american mountain and created a cargo cult. I don’t know if this particular guitar lived in a smokey environment.

The way inanimate objects get stained makes me think how well the human body is able to take in this stuff and somehow push it back out, but at the same time, how crazy it is to do it at all. Strange that I did for 11 years.
