TeleVideo PC from 1983

The TS 803 personal computer from TeleVideo. No fan for no noise, a ‘big’ 14″ monitor, a whopping 1 MB of storage space, at only $2,495 – and while not the first, it was the best! This advert comes from a June, 1983, edition of Esquire magazine. The ad states that the TS 803 is $1000 less than a comparably equipped Apple, but I think that it’s safe to say now that Apple didn’t have anything to worry about.

Silenoi and Maenads

Detail of two satyrs with Maenads from a Greek vase.

These types of satyrs, with horse ears and tails but otherwise humanoid features, carry the name of Silenoi (sons of Silenos). The horned, goat-legged satyrs carry the name of Panetes (sons of Pan). Satyrs and Maenads acted as the devotees of the god Dionysos (Roman Bacchus).

Nehalennia by Heidevolk

My favorite band for the last four years. Heidevolk is a Heathen Folk Metal band from the Gelderland region of the Netherlands. I’ll probably be putting up more about them in the future, as it’s been a goal of mine to increase people’s awareness of this great band in the U.S.

Exploding with so much testosterone that you’ll walk away with your balls 1% bigger.
