I posted this to my Facebook, but thought it warranted the rare post over here.
This has been floating around the web (at least the Mac-centric side of the web), I thought I’d share it, too, since I have a personal connection to this.
VintageZen – Matt Groening’s Artwork for Apple
The personal connection I have? I used to own that Akbar and Jeff poster:
Networking in Hell by Matt Groening
I sold it (probably about four years ago) to someone who used to work for Apple in their networking/communications group during that time. He told me he had been looking for it for years. Apparently there are a few “in” jokes in the poster.
The buyer now has a top position with one of Apple’s biggest competitors (for privacy reasons, I won’t say who it is). I like to think he has this poster hanging in his office there, but for some reason I kind of doubt it.
Well, I got the Call it Karma and Posters pages up to date. I don’t have as much flexibility here as I did with a hosted site running ExpressionEngine, but it gets the job done.
The only thing left now is to forward the georgekrueger.com domain so it points here. I may wait until tomorrow, to give some of the people connected to the RSS feed a change to update their links.
I’ve updated the Posters page to reflect some new posters that I’ve required within the past year. They are from a My Morning Jacket concert we went to last year, a poster Phish released to honor the The Clifford Ball DVD release, and an Allman Brothers Band/Widespread Panic poster from the show earlier this week. There are still several older posters that have yet to be added, though. Maybe I should just include the rest as list at the bottom of the page?
Also, I changed the icon and graphic for the Matt Groening “Networking in Hell” poster to reflect that I sold it earlier this year. It’s the only poster from my collection I ever sold. It wasn’t sold to a collector, but to someone whom the poster held personal meaning (I won’t say who). If it was a collector who had contacted me, I wouldn’t have sold it (I have been contacted in the past about other posters).
Anyway, click on over and check ‘em out!
