What’s the Right Work Station For Your Home Study

A lot of people dream about being able to work from home. Not having to worry about beating the traffic or putting on a suit makes work all the more appealing. Being able to work in pajamas and eat pancakes at the computer is quite a liberating concept. In order to set up a proper home office a person must sort through a wide selection of desks to find the one that is right for their wants and needs. Choice is a wonderful thing but it can sometimes make life a little more difficult so it is important for people to approach the shopping experience with a preconceived idea of what they are looking for.

For people who will be doing all of their work from home and need a proper home office a highly functional desk is a necessity. A large, corner desk is a wonderful piece for any home office that has enough space to accommodate. This kind of space provides a person with a place for their computer as well as ample desk space for other work. These kinds of desks also typically come with a good amount of drawers which are an essential part of any organized office. If the home office is the only office then organization is key, especially if space is somewhat limited. For people who do not have the luxury of a room that can fit a corner desk, there are other options that can help them utilize the space they do have.

There are desks that have a simple base but include a unit that can be placed on top. This additional unit provides space for the computer as well as more shelves for files, a printer, and any other items a functioning office would need readily available. These are a wonderful option for people who do not have a lot of floor space that they can dedicate to their work space. All work stations should come with a keyboard shelf that can easily be slid in and out from under the desk so that it does not take up vital space on top of the desk. As well as having a unit to place on top of the desk, a good work station should also have an organizational unit that goes underneath the desk to the side. This is where people can put additional files and other items that they need for daily work.

Once a person decides what functions they need their desk to perform they can get into the arena of choosing what style they like best. The classic look for desks includes carved wood with somewhat ornate edges and shelves. More contemporary looks utilize metal and sometimes glass. Either look is very nice but each sets a unique vibe so a person working from home has to consider what look they are projecting, especially if they plan to have potential customers or business partners in their office. Making sure the desk meets all of a person’s work needs is the most important thing on the list to consider when shopping for a good work station, but style and design should also play a strong role in the ultimate decision.

The Miles City Star Building, 818 Main Street, Miles City, Montana. Home of the "Miles City Star" newspaper, the Miles City Star Printing and Office Supply Store, and KATL 770AM Radio.

Before the "Star" was located in this building "Coast to Coast / Steadman’s Ace Hardware / Radio Shack" was located in this building. This building replaced the original "Coast to Coast" store which burned down in the early 1990’s (I think). The original "Coast to Coast" building housed "Reynold’s Grocery" before it became "Coast to Coast Hardware".

This is one of a series of snapshots chronicling the transformation of my 1961 Cadillac into the the WJUL Mobile Unit (aka "Christine").

I originally purchased this automobile in 1982 for 0 in California, just before my tour was up in the Marine Corps.

While attending the University of Lowell (Massachusetts), and as a member of the student-operated radio station (WJUL), it was decided that the car could be turned into a rolling version of the station’s bumper-sticker, just in time for the University’s "Spring Fling." The car was painted in exterior latex paint, with brushes and rollers, in the Cumnock Hall quadrangle. The station call-letters were hand-painted in the driveway of a fellow station member.

Sadly, the car met an inglorious end, left abandoned several years later in a storage facility in Tewksbury, MA

NYC – Greenwich Village: Electric Lady Studios

Image by wallyg
Designed by De Stijl member and Juliard’s then theater director, Frederick Kiesler, 52 West 8th Street’s first occupant was the Film Guild Cinema, which opened in 1929. Shortly after, Rudy Valley’s country-western nightclub, the Village Barn, opened in the basement where it honky-tonked for 30-plus years. Hans Hoffman, father of the "push pull" color theory and abstract expressionism, lived, painted and taught here from 1938 to 1958.

When The Generation Club, which replaced the Village Barn closed in 1968, Jimi Hendrix and his manager, Mike Jeffrey, bought the space for k with the intention of turning it into a club of their own. His accountant, however, convinced him that owning a studio would be more fiscally sound–predating the Beatles’ Abbey Road in an era when label owned and operated studios were the norm. Hendrix commissioned an upstart out of Princeton, John Storyk to architect the studio with the instructions for "soft", "curvaceous" and wherever possible "no right angles." Storyk would go one to develop over 2,000 studios, radio stations, clubs and theaters.

Construction lasted nearly twice as long and cost twice as much as expected, but Hendrix didn’t wait to start tracking recordings. Nearly 30 songs were recorded prior during this time, including most of "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" and hours of jams with Steve Winwood and Chris Wood of Traffic. Electric Lady Studios officially opened on August 26, 1970. That same night, Jimi left for England to play the Isle Wright Festival and only thirteen days later, was pronounced dead at the age of 27.

Under Director of Engineering, Eddie Kramer, Electric Lady would go on to be one of the premier recording spots of the early 70’s with artists like Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Curtis Mayfield, David Bowie, John Lennon, Peter Frampton, Diane Warwick, Carley Simon, Kiss, Billy Coham, and Lena Horne taking up residence.

In the 1970’s, the 8th Street Playhouse took over the space upstairs, dedicated to independent film like its predecessor. It became the first true "screening" theater…no curtains or stage, just a screen. It also became the first theater to offer a midnight film seven days a week. By its closing in 1992, it was perhaps most famous for its 15 year-run of twice-weekly midnight screenings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Today the space is divided between indepndent video rental store, TLA Video, and off-Broadway theater, The Independent. TLA stands for the Theater of Living Arts and was founded by Andre Gregory of My Dinner with Andre.

Electric Lady Studios continues to prosper as Manhattan’s oldest existing recording facility. The client list has grown more impressive with each passing year. A laundry list of those to lay tracks includes the White Stripes, Radiohead, U2, Lou Reed, Michael Jackson, Guns N’ Roses, Mariah Carey, Prince, Madonna, Santana, Eric Clapton, Al Green, Jay-Z, Frank Zappa, The Notorious B.I.G., Bjork, Placido Domingo, Whitney Houston, The Beastie Boys, Bjork, Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Weezer, Common, AC/DC, Alicia Keys, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Al Green, the Dave Matthews Band, and Placido Domingo.

KLS sticker on Lionel Hampton 78

Image by bunky’s pickle
Recorded for RCA-Victor April 14, 1937. The sticker does not refer to Hollywood’s Warner Brothers, but to Stafford and Eugene Warner, whose radio station began as a wireless outfit run out of their radio supply store in Oakland, California. Around 1921 they began playing records over the air as KLS, and they became one of the most successful stations in the Bay Area. The "Not Licensed for Radio Broadcast" warning was probably disregarded; in fact in August of 1937, bandleader Fred Waring won a case against a station in Philadelphia for playing his records that were marked as such. Of course all the major record companies were owned by media congloms (RCA, maker of radios, having bought out Victor in 1929) so things were bound to shift.

Illegally downloaded music may be of poor quality

From a display of MP3 players in Tesco. I like that it may be of poor quality – clearly Radio 1 have been getting all their songs off Kazaa (or whatever the youth use these days). Commercial radio stations have got theirs from, I dunno, Audio Galaxy or something.
