    I get that audiophile-level equipment is a niche thing, but I certainly wouldn't compare this price point to being raped up the ass. Anybody who spends any time dedicated to listening to music deserves a good setup to enjoy it. Budget setups exist, but I already abandoned that route far too long ago.

    Oooooohhhhh ferrrrr sure. Myself I don't use anything but magnetic conduction technology. Serious if I don't pay $12,000 a metre for speaker cabling my ears just refuse to even hear the sound produced.

    The one time I splashed out this decade was when I paid NZ$1000 for a turntable. I only have about 25 records and rarely even play them, but it's been good for digitising a few of them. Plus I can try a bit of DJ scratching for my noise project sometime. Or play records backwards to find those satanic messages.

    What's fucked up is some of the pieces of shit you'd get if you spend any more than that. Turntables that are all about the looks or bragging rights about how much money you wasted, but are swamped with negative reviews about their ability to actually play records.

    And if it they have some hip hop dude's name plastered on them they are worth more than one with a Metallica logo.

    The prices of some turntables are fucking ridiculous. I get that you want it to spin perfect, but I think a good cart and needle on a halfway decent old-school table sounds about as good as it gets. I used to clean houses for high end clients and such, and this one dude had a turntable that retails for over $10,000 USD. I laughed when I saw that he left a record on it for display, something somebody who truly values their vinyl knows just ruins it.

    Anyways, loving the LCD-2s. Their warmth gives me the same feeling as it was when ive seen them live, which is great. From what ive gathered this is a good metal headphone, and I now see what they mean. I could give two shits about Slammed's trailer park mentality.

    What I said wasn't said for you to give any shits about, it was said purely to wind you up, something which obviously worked given the way you reacted. If your delicate little ears feel warmer with $1000 headphones that's great and if you actually believe they make the sound of two cats fucking on a hot tin roof sound like an operatic masterpiece more power to you. Would you also like to buy some magic beans? Guaranteed you'll meet a giant.

    Hair metal didn't die, it took a hiatus.

    How in the holy hell do you fuck up a pizza this badly? It's literally just a dough base with a bunch of stuff you like to eat plopped on top. The pizza base looks like a travesty. :lol:

    Decompressing after busy day. On vacation for the next week. No plans between now and Thanksgiving, finally. Out of fucks. Tired of everyone's bullshit. Looking forward to ignoring calls and texts for a few days.

    Ok I'll give it a go.
    You're an idiot because you tried too hard to validate your purchase in the eyes of others by quoting an arbitrary figure that means little or nothing to anyone but yourself.

    Ok so basically after tripping and falling on the ground drunk on saturday and generally feeling like a sick person when not drinking I decided to lay it off for a week which will include friday and saturday. What an event. Rare shit.

    Actually I'm already feeling pretty good and it's the third day. (y) I need to eat better as well, but cooked me some red lentils yesterday with feta cheese and brocolli and zucchini, feelsgoodman.gif.

    Building this array of quick veggie meals to cook throughout the work week and thsi one passed the test.

    Just tried out some incense that came in the mail today. I bought a variety pack, cause I don't know what I like. The first thing I tried was myrrh, since it's literary n shit. This stuff's gross. Smells like the stuff used by most of the stoners I've been around in my life. That rotten, flowery, lavender-like smell.

    Waiting for the air to clear so I can try something else.
