</>ENCHANTED</></>PROXY</>

Graphic Design studio specializing in cheap/free/generic/alternative tools. Everything Most of what you see was made on a $20 computer using only Open Source software. I've recently updated to a $300 netbook with used components to augment. If you need a project done, please inquire to hire.

Here's a kind-of how-to on some of the site images you see: Making your own sound and visualizing that sound.

Their regime is unethical. Their regime is wasteful. Their regime deals in arbitrary complexity. Their regime is not alien enough. Their regime is nostalgic.

Our regime is an accident. Our regime is universally compatible. Our regime deals in honest mistakes. Our regime begs and borrows. Our regime is patient.

We will not buy first-hand when the second-hand is just fine.
We will not exploit the creative working class.
We will not accept the tools made for our trade.
We will not steal, only take back what is rightfully ours.
We will not carry about an attitude of privilege.
We will not succumb to nostalgia.
We will not pledge allegiance to brands.

We will be hasty.
We will tap the Open Source.
We will give back to the Open Source.
We will beg and borrow all day long.
We will seek simple yet unorthodox solutions.
We will ruin and break to create.
We will undermine their system (and ours).
We will make do.
