  1. Dink

    Dink, was an alternative/industrial rock band formed in Kent, Ohio in 1992. The band's sound was considered unique for its time, combining elements of industrial, Hip Hop, hard rock, and electronic dance. Dink's members included Sean Carlin, Rob Lightbody, Jer Herring, Jeff Finn, and Jan Eddy Van Der Kuil. Dink released one self-titled album, also mostly self-produced, in 1994 on Capitol Records. The album featured one song produced by Skinny Puppy's Dave "Rave" Ogilvie. The song "Green Mind" was a hit, featuring some play on MTV and in the films Fear and Double Dragon, and reached #1 on the alternative dance charts. The band's next two singles, "Angels" and "Get On It" also topped the alternative dance charts, repeating the chart success of "Green Mind." Dink toured briefly with bands such as Pop Will Eat Itself, KMFDM and Lords of Acid to further promote their debut. Dink recorded a follow up album, also on Capitol in 1995, and some of the songs would be released on the EP Blame It on Tito, which was released in 1996. The band then recorded additional songs for a second album to be released in late 1997/early 1998, but was dropped by Capitol due to the changing musical climate. This led to the band's break up in 1998.

The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. dink

    Said of a machine that has the bitty box nature; a machine too small to be worth bothering with — sometimes the system you're currently forced to work on. First heard from an MIT hacker working on a CP/M system with 64K, in reference to any 6502 system, then from fans of 32-bit architectures about 16-bit machines. “GNUMACS will never work on that dink machine.” Probably derived from mainstream ‘dinky’, which isn't sufficiently pejorative. See macdink.
