When I saw this photo, I thought “Ian has taped his laptop half-shut because he doesn’t want sneaky people to see what software he’s running: Live or Reason or Fruity Loops, etc.” It would be the 2007.3 version of DJs soaking the labels off records.
This photo could also represent something else entirely. Maybe Williams is protecting the laptop from Stanier’s arms. Maybe Williams lowers the screen to create more lateral room for headstock swashbuckling. All that black tape could be holding the computer in place. (Some of it must be doing just that.) Who knows.Posted by Sasha at November 23, 2007 10:27 PM | TrackBack
