My monitor broke last night, and until we get it replaced I'm using the tiny, old CRT from the music computer. It feels like I'm trapped in the late eighties/early nineties. Looking at Warcraft on the tiny, curved screen feels like looking through a bizarrely distorted time-warp -- because it's Warcraft... but... it's fifteen years ago... Woah.

Although, weirdly, Warcraft almost looks better on the tiny CRT than on my giant flat panel. The curve of the CRT and the fact that it has a physical depth to it creates the illusion that I'm looking into a tiny world contained inside it. Like a diorama. Whereas, the world of Warcraft is clearly fake and virtual when displayed on some giat, flat screen; although, the details are sharper.
