  1. all around great guy, will be missed./
  2. but dude, we have to talk about your avatar....any chance of the jet engines again? please?
  3. My experience re: the search for the "best" is that is is a journey rather than a destination and that the wise will endover to enjoy the wrong turns and podunk towns along the way...
  4. it was 1976 when i heard my first pair of corns, my roomate moved to his own place and bought a brand new pair of cornwalls. unfortunately, he was running them with an all jvc system and they sounded mediocre at best. since then i've heard corns many times and i'm always amazed at how good they sound. point: don't do jvc or don't do my friends apartment.

    THE CREATION OF WOMAN While creating women, God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He smiled and made the earth round.

    Last week, I took my grand-children to a restaurant. My six-year-old grand-son asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And liberty and justice for all! Amen!" Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!" Hearing this, my grand-son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?" As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table. He winked at my grand-son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer." "Really?" my grand-son asked. "Cross my heart," the man replied. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes." Naturally, I bought my grand-children ice cream at the end of the meal. My grandson stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life. He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Shove it up your a s s you grouchy old b itch! "
  9. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Get well Dean!
  10. Congratulations, you got a great deal! I'd suggest putting down a carpet remnant or area rug and some drapes or something on the walls to tame the concrete room. Would also replace the little sony unit for something better. Then i'd think about the caps.
  11. a great musician and entertainer, rip.

    I was in a pub on Saturday night. Had a few... I noticed two large women by the bar. They both had strong accents, so I asked. "Hey, are you two ladies from Scotland?" One of them chirped: "It's WALES you friggin' idiot!" So, I immediately apologized and said..., "Sorry, are you two whales from Scotland?" Then the lights went out...
  13. in my opinion, though, some of the charm about this place is the personalities who visit and the freedom to stray off topic without much recourse. if you think about it.. speakers and audio is a pretty dry subject, with lots of opinions and regurgitated facts. all of the off topic banter makes it digestible and worth coming back to read. we self govern the jackoffs that are mean spirited and rude, while showing a tolerance for everything else that most forums typically do not. I agree, I'm glad this forum is not like all the others.You can ignore anyone you want already, it's called being adult. quite true, but if this board had an ignore function, nobody would force you personally to use it.....

    Grandpa and the IRS The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office. The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney. The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable.' I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration?' The auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.' Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.' The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.' Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops.. Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.' Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet. Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye. The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous. 'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.' The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again. Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor's desk. The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win. But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands~~ 'Are you okay?' the auditor asks. 'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!' I keep telling you! Don't Mess with Old People!!
  15. or even an ignore function where their posts wouldn't show up, no matter where you're perusing. many boards have this feature and it helps keep the threads on topic.
  16. i'd like to hear what you think when you get the new caps installed, let us know. [Y]
  17. the mac stack, can't quit looking at it, better than a shoe show!
  18. What did you think? OK, fair, good, sucks, big and ugly or maby " pretty impaired " .... OK I had to throw in a easy one. I do know my opinion on the original question asked here but i would rather beat around the bush. i thought the jubs were the best of the three, but it was later, in a different room, different electronics, etc. they were all very very good.
  19. here is the jub listening session soon after the khorn vs pallidium comparison...
  20. i thought the khorns and the palladiums were almost a dead heat. you described the khorn bass signature perfectly but that's not to say the bass from the palladiums were any less authoritative. the jubs were in another room and about 15 minutes later so consider that in my comments but i thought the jubs were a tick better in imaging, soundstage and low end. just a tick but noticable..
