    1. The best musical discovery you've made this year?
    First Aid Kit.

    2. The biggest disappointment of the year? (anything)
    In Mourning - The Weight of the Oceans
    The first track is amazing (one of the best songs this year), but other than that it's just so very bland.

    3. What's your morning routine?
    I don't have one. I usually check the internet for a couple of hours.

    4. What was your last "big" purchase?
    Made a big pledge for a Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity

    5. What's been taking your free time recently?
    Guild Wars 2 up until recently. Hit max level then got bored of the game.
    Other that, I've been doing some job interview stuff. Also University stuff.
    But most recently, I've been playing Faster Than Light. Amazing little game.

    Hmmm not so many probably Gojira

    Finishing my master in social science, working

    Sweet! I wanted to get those but they were a bit beyond what I was willing to pay. I went with the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 instead (no regrets as they're superb cans too for the price).

    Not American either, but as one of those who dared think Ron Paul had a chance and as someone who followed that GOP bullshit convention, I can't say I'm not in disappointment either.

    Yeah, I'm really happy with these so far. I previously had Shure SRH840, but wanted open-backs for comparison and also something a bit lighter/more comfortable to wear and I reckon the 205€ at Thomann musikhaus was quite an excellent prize for headphones of this tier. I hear good thing of Audio-Technica too so I'm sure those are excellent closed-backs.

    I'ts just a shame that ever since I tried proper headphones for the first time, I can't go with anything cheap anymore. Darn hi-fi bug. :D

    I tried but I can't. I don't feel very creative at the moment.

    But it's really fucking easy. You just write five sentences with a question mark at the end.
