For Celebrity JYW, Blue Man Group!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
See www.blueman.com They are the guys on the Pentium III and IV TV commercials. Their "specialty" is making musical instruments from all sorts of odd things. Unlike most "junk bands" their stuff actually sounds good. :) I'm a child of the 70's and 80's, it's rare that I can stand any music from the last decade but Blue Man Group is super. :)

Isn't that the group that makes their music on Macintosh computers?

I don't know if they use computers in their music at all. They use stuff like PVC pipe and other odd things. About the only musical instrument they use that started life as one is an antique hammered dulcimer.

That's right. BMG coordinates everything you see at one of their shows via Macintosh (and if you've been to a show, you know that's a ton of vastly complicated stuff. It's not all playing catch with marshmallows). They're all huge mac fanatics.
That intel used them isn't surprising - past intel ads have been produced / rendered entirely on macintoshes. Just one of those strange things. PV

Mac based machines dominate the graphics industry, the first Mac handled graphics alot better than the early IBM PC's which where designed for business (word processing, accounting) with limited grapics capability. For a short while I delivered printing and graphic supplies to printing and design houses and noticed that all the grapic design machines were mac based and the receptionist/secretary would have a PC based machine for the word processing.
