Name:Michael Kupperman (American cartoonist and creator of some of the most hilarious comics of all time) OS: Mac
Notable Apps: Photoshop - standard design fare, I suppose. He's also running uTorrent - come on, we all do it... and a fair few media looking icons that I can't quite recognise - maybe somebody can help me out??
Interesting Shortcuts: There are quite a few RTFs on the desktop - written ideas for new strips perhaps? The rest of the desktop is a field of images of varying formats; line drawings, comics, a few photos - possibly projects he's working on, or reference photos to spark the creative juices?? I also see what seems to be a cover for a new iteration of his fantastic 'Tales Designed To Thrizzle'. Is this just updated artwork or a cover for an entirely new collection??
Cleanliness: 6/10 (although, show me a tidy artist and I'll show you a closet serial killer...) Interestingness: 7/10 Wallpaper: 5/10 OVERALL: 8/10(Mike gets bonus points for being the creator of 'Snake & Bacon')
Name: Hayley Williams (of the band Paramore) OS: Mac Notable Apps: None, really. Standard Apple fare. Skype and iChat installed, but chat window minimised, much to the disappointment of my prying nature. Interesting Shortcuts: Sunny Day Real Estate cover art. Great band, by the way; their second iteration as 'The Fire Theft' only produced one record, but it's one of my favourite ever LPs.
A folder named 'orly', which one can only imagine is full of owls, cats and other hilariously captioned animals. Another named 'INSPIRATION FINGERS' which I assume is a little bit like 'jazz hands' but played down somewhat... And a folder presumably containing 'PARAMORE PICS' which is understandable; if my band (BRIGHTLIGHTS) were as good/big as these guys, I'd want photographic proof at my fingertips at all times.
A jpeg of some rather fetching woollen sweaters. A new look for the band, perhaps?
...even celebrities. They're just like us, really, except much, much famouser (it's a word - look it up). And, like us, their desktops can be a window into their true self.
Sometimes I like to imagine Bono, falling alseep; Mariah Carey texting on the loo; the Pope playing Street Fighter II Turbo with an altar boy.
In the same way, by viewing these celebrity desktops, you too can gain a quick look into the normal, everyday lives of some of the interweb's most famousest of celebritypes.
