I have one waiting for me for free, just need to get a hold of the guy, but he was comissioned to do some artwork for my dad, turned out bad, so dad let him go, so yeah, I just haven't brought myself to do it yet.

Thank you, I'm still working on the place I've got some 'before' pics I've been meaning to upload and I have completed some which I will have to take 'after' pics of.

Well, the apartment's coming along nicely.  I've got my office, laundry room, spare bedroom, and bathroom left, they're all primed, just need to be painted and I'm a busy guy and haven't found the time.  But I digress.  Here's some pics of before/after.

Nice!  Now whatever you do, do NOT get roommates if you want to keep it nice!

Great job Tom!  Nice to see so much effort put into decorating it up.  You certainly have found some good retro stuff, and the colors on the walls look good as well.

Avoid roomates unless you have to for financial reasons.

 It is a great opportunity to meet yourself. Don't be surprised if you find you have annoying habits. Either deal with it or change. But either way, learn to accept how you are. This insight is handy the rest of your life.

Aah, I see that your friends Smith and Wesson are there to help take care of the place. Good choice.

Thanks everyone.  A lot of thought went into the colors and the decorating, and what-not.  The Silvertone needs capacitors and maybe a couple tubes, the Panasonic console was my dad's and does work like a charm. 

The coach gun was a gift from my father when I moved out, as well as a .357 Rossi Revolver which I wear when I'm working downstairs at the gun store.

I will not be getting any roommates, as if there's financial troubles, my folks are more than happy to accomodate me if something were to go wrong. 

That is a 302 next to my couch, I bought it not even 3 miles from here, at the Pardeeville antique mall.
