  1. So, if I may present the next one, unless I am way off in which case someone else take over: Don't harrass me can't you tell I'm going home I'm tired as hell I'm not the cat I used to be I got a kid I'm thirty-three baby!
  2. Jeff you are going from olorin's hint instead of the challenge. I say it is Mob Rules? The hint refers to the genre.
  3. jeff, it was Olorin's challenge, and I think it is Sabbath.....
  4. BBQ is a year round treat! I make a point of firing it up on the coldest day of the year, and the hottest too. For those not in the know, brisket is the ultimate challenge. Getting the smoke flavor in (the ring) is easy compared to keeping it tender. Most will tell you that around 18 hours is what it takes, but that is 18 hours of perfect temperature and constant attention. Done right you just can't stop eating it until you have to. I wish I could make a great brisket consistently with my primitive equipment, but the process is as much fun as the result, it takes a lot of beers you know.....
  5. You must be one tall dude or you are sitting high. Sitting on my couch the tweeters are maybe just a tad below the ears, and not enough to worry about. If you insist, you might want to construct a sand filled riser.
  6. To quote from Dire Straits: "Oh yeah, the boy can play!" Nice rig too.
  7. JB you got the "Z" part right for the artist even if it was by accident. Maybe Jeff is onto something about you.
  8. Through sixty-six and seven they fought the Congo war With their fingers on their triggers, knee-deep in gore For days and nights they battled the Bantu to their knees They killed to earn their living and to help out the Congolese
  9. Some Girls--Rolling Stones I especially like the lines "French girls want Cartier, Italian girls want cars, and American girls want everything in the world you could possibly imagine!"
  10. There's genius in there. You just have to read several times and think hard for about 10 minutes. The kid set his step dad/cameraman up (reverse psychology of our normal reaction) , ala MTV punked scenario (don't know about this MTV punked thing) , an carbon units, are all experiencing transference, in more ways than one (all the world's a stage, and we are merely players, performers and portrayers []), you've been punked too (the stage includes us), motive kid wants interaction ,an not to be a cog of dads baby boomer toys (kid wants dad to spend some time with him doing kid's things),older carbon units are given newer carbon units, to purify older polluted carbon units (dad's have kids to de-tox themselves from the trappings of adulthood), chaos causing older carbon unit order (the episode all brings together the natural order of things) Brilliant! [] Without debating the brilliance of the writer, communication is best accomplished with the use of a language that can be readily understood by others without redundant efforts at deciphering.
  11. Well.....maybe that's silly to you, but there's nothing that pisses me off more than when I get to work and folks aren't pulled all the way in or too far in or they're parked off-center or catty-whompass in the space. And the hell of it is that it always happens when I'm having a good morning. But nooooooo......someone has to park all crazy like and such. I mean, how hard is it to get something like that right?? It's a space that has lines. Those lines aren't trapezoidal they're at right angles to each other - RIGHT ANGLES FER CHRISSAKES!!! [:@] And what puts the icing on the cake is that I know FOR A FACT that they do it just to irritate me. In fact, I can just see them peering out their windows watching for me so they can have their sick fun (psssssst......I'll let you in on a little secret - there's lots of these folks all around us every day. They may look like you & I, but they aren't. I'm willing to bet their skin glows under a black light. Probably part of some scouting party from another planet sent here to scope us out. Uhhhhh....where was I? Oh yeah....). I'm a VERY good parker BTW. If I'm 38 minutes late for work because I was trying to get my truck perfectly aligned in the parking space SO WHAT??? It's better than being late 'cause you pooped your pants on the way to work. In fact I told my boss that nobody, and I mean NOBODY, will ever accuse me of bad parking and that if he had a problem with my tardiness, then he just didn't see the big picture. And don't EVEN get me started on those folks that leave their wheels turned one way or the other instead of straightening them up once parked. I'm sorry, but things just aren't like they use to be. And the kids....the kids these days. Listen....I'd like to continue this but my wife just pulled into the driveway and I need to grab my flashlights to guide her into the proper parking position in the garage. Uh - huh...she knows better than to make daddy mad. Tom Beautiful work Tom. Just one question. Who is chris? (fer Chrissakes).
  12. Note to those with glass tops on furniture. If you take it off and clean both sides periodically, leave it off for a while to make damn sure that the bottom side is completely 100% dry, or the finish will be ruined.
  13. Not much of a comparison these days. You know what I mean if you have looked at Sunday comics lately. For the record I like the sound of LaScalas.
  14. I'm proud to be against both parties, but my dad sent me this. the text reads, "this is why men vote republican."
  15. Exactly. Excuses, excuses. The real issue here is who she got them from.
  16. "after i add to this LS's kinda ugly look and bulky size plus renovation of the cabinets it makes me think - why to go this way? i mean - if somebody wants the best bang for a buck (brithish pound in my case :-)) than i guess nothing can come close to 800$ or so Lascalas." Well, for best bang for the buck (bpd) at the price mentioned, try Cornwalls or Forte II's. That is if you don't want to mod the LaScalas.
  17. Hey Seadog! I have also used the same method for 27 years. Many have commented that this system is bad, but my lps sound just as good as they always have. My brush wore out recently and I scored a NIB NOS brush on ebay to replace it. My set up is definitively not audiophile by any standard. Maybe someday I'll get some stuff like the real gung ho guys on the forum, but what the hey, you have to fight your battles one WAF at a time.
  18. Just got mine a week ago. They are a big improvement over the stock HK's my pc came with. Now I can surf the net while streaming jazz radio and it is enjoyable. You should be able to get them for 59.99 from the Klipsch ebay store, and for the price you can't do better.
  19. "I have no faith in corporations as an investment. Insiders make the real profits. The officers and directors siphon all the profits out in terms of huge salaries and benefits packages. They take pretty much everything they can for themselves and their friends. The shareholders are certain to get as little as possible. That's why we still see $30 million salaries being paid to execs whose companies are losing money. What a joke." I've said it before, and I'll say it again: It's nice work if you can get it. There seems to be this insiders club of execs. These guys drive companies into bankruptcy, then get top jobs elsewhere because of their "experience?" Also executives who stay at firms during bankruptcies get BONUSES! yes bonuses just to stay because of the company can't "afford" to lose this critical "talent?" at such an important time. These are people who share a common talent, they got where they are by backstabbing their way to the top and/or taking credit from the people who actually do the work. If they were judged the way musicians are, by their actual performance, they would be dumpster diving for their daily bread.
  20. Miles Davis--In Europe, also At Carnegie Hall.
  21. The digital cable here (which only has rca l/r outs, no hd yet) is definitely subpar. It is nice to put on as a low background for convenience, but is not for critical listening.
  22. I have to side with Allan on this one. He states that the satisfaction riff is the single most identifiable. Maybe for rock and rollers Smoke on the water is more identifiable, but to the general public satisfaction is, even if it is because according to garymd that it is the most overplayed.
