Computer Century

Tell me what you feel in your room when the full moon is shining in upon you and your lamp is dying out, and I will tell you how old you are, and I shall know if you are happy.

Henri Frederic Amiel (who was a professor of aesthetics and philosophy. Fortunately he died out 100 years before this lamp began shining.)

Have I had a lamp up before? Cancel all other bets as the Computer Century lamp is the worst of them all. I haven’t even seen an Italian lamp in worse taste than this Chinese one.

    Does it come with a matching hat stand? Of course the full glory of all the tassels can not be properly appreciated until the glad wrap is removed.

    I could grow to like this if it had a pink Hello Kitty theme


  3. Ideally you would leave the plastic on,


  4. By the way, it’s not a tv, it’s just a picture with a digital calender on the side.


  5. Levon says:

    I like how it handily tells you what century you’re in; just under the day.


  6. It would fit well with the new foreshore developments as a centrepiece for the fake island. With a sign saying, “Welcome to the aesthetics of the 21st century.” Then in 50 years time people will protest in the streets against its removal when the foreshore is returned to its natural state! (Assuming Global Warming hasn’t moved the shoreline halfway up William St.)


  7. The chinese character says minute.


  8. Squib says:

    It’s not a TV? That’s funny, I thought it was a computer

    I’m not so impressed by it now

    This has CopperArt written all over it.

    Like those stools that all fit into each other. I mean they’re stools, why would i want 15 progressively smaller stools? They’re like those russian dolls, except pointless and shit.

    I’ve only got 2 legs, i dont want multiple stools. Stools are like little chairs with no back.



  10. B. T. says:

    I’m with Squib on this one, if that isn’t a TV or one of those digital photo display things from the sky mall catalogue, I’m not impressed.


  11. Rage says:

    I want this. It’s too hilarious not to be in my possession. I’ll put in the blue 1950’s ranch alongside the Alsatian art. Beaufort St in Inglewood, eh? Which business?


  12. 854 Beaufort. Not far from the brothel at 835. Other side of the street.


  13. Rage says:

    Ah, excellent. I’ll drop by next time I’m at the brothel having a discrete and discreet massage.


  14. skink says:

    does it actually say “opposite the Brothel” on the ad in the photo? the text is cropped


  15. There could be no “happier ending” than coming home with this lamp in your boot and a spring in your step.


  16. Rage says:

    Aahahahahahah. Brilliant. Just… brilliant.


  17. margeryx says:

    Rage – make sure you let us know what the price tag is for this fabulously useful and decorative item.


  18. Bedfords Crackpot Fraternity! says:

    It looks like a Where’s Wally” of animals, is that a parrots head in frame right? A hapless water buffalo top left in the waterfall? Beaufort street IS going off!


  19. I was going to say wot fuck you talk about cracky? but yes, maybe there is a water buffalo. Don’t see parrot though.


  20. #17. I would guess similar to price for full service. Lamp will keep on satisfying for years though. (And count them).


  21. Bedfords Crackpot Fraternity! says:

    Its a bit of black & brown hillside but also looks like parrots head looking quisically into frame!! Also some iguanas on the rocks in bottom lake…..


  22. Bedfords Crackpot Fraternity! says:

    … wait – its the damn wine!!!
