Well, it's a kind-of Battlestation! This is where I spend most of my days at home! Ever since I got a new PC, I've wanted to set myself up so I could use my Yiynova with it (my old PC didn't have enough connections to install multiple monitors). The Yiynova is on the left - it's a Cintiq alternative (at a third of the price!) that I treated myself to a few years ago now. I'd played around with Cintiqs before and really wanted one, but this review convinced me to try a Yiynova and I'm so glad I did!
The screen on the right is actually a Samsung Smart TV. It's hooked up to my PC via hdmi, so I can stream videos to watch in bed! I need a television! I'm one of the few nerds that actually loves regular TV, I've always got it on for background noise if nothing else. I'd much rather watch a show like Doctor Who on live TV than streamed later - it's something about the comradery of knowing I'm watching with the rest of the nation.
Speaking of Doctor Who, the Doctor Who Van Gogh picture was a gift from my friend DC, and the Tetris Blocks are actually an amazing light that Moose gave me for Valentines a few years ago! Behind it hides my PS2 and 360, and you can just see my PS3 under the monitor. I have an iPod touch as well as the ancient old iPod docked there, but my old iPod holds so much more music. I don't really use either, since I'm usually watching television or listening to Spotify, but they're nice to keep around.
It's important that this little nook of my room is colourful, fun and (relatively!) tidy! This is where I draw, game and do all my social media, so it has to be calming and nice to sit in. I have a small pull-out table that I set up next to it all for my real media arts and crafts since the PC desk isn't really large enough for it. Yes, that's really how much room I allow for my mouse. Office desks really aren't made for gaming!
Anyway, that's about that! I figured you guys might like a glimpse at where the magic happens, as it were. I love seeing other people's desks and setups so if you've got any pictures to share I'd love to see them!
