  1. Killing Eve (BBC network) - a fantastically fun look into the mind of a killer-for-hire with zero empathy & the people charged with tracking her down. Also Lost in Space (Netflix reboot), which I am enjoying immensely as well.
  2. High Maintenance (HBO) - maybe I am getting a contact high, but I'm really enjoying binging this.
  3. Watched season 1 last week, and binged season 2 today. Love this show! Olyphant & Barrymore are perfect, as are all the supporting cast. Using the "zombie-ism" as a metaphor for the main couple dealing with mid-life changes & acceptance is brilliant.
  4. Binged "JJ" season 2 this past week as well. I love Ritter as the titular character & can't imagine anyone else playing her. The season itself is about 2.5 eps too long imo, as with all the other Netflix/Marvel series'. But still

    Westworld

    Binged season 1 this week. Mostly good stuff. Looking forward to season 2.
  6. Bummed I had to miss this year's event. Would like to have heard the HD820. Did anyone?
  7. So sorry to hear Todd. RIP Carol.
  8. ^Sorry to hear Dusty. Hope all turns out ok.
  9. Spiral fractures from slipping on ice last week - one near bottom of tibia, the other at top of fibula: Now have a plate & screws inside anchoring everything for healing. I have a feeling my leg looks a little like Colin's underneath the cast, just not as "pretty"
  10. Just finished ep4 - really like too. This is how to develop an environment that is both cold-war retro and cutting edge at the same time. Characters you care about, some you probably hate, and those you aren't quite sure about. Keeping the mystery, while dripping just enough substance to keep you engaged. Also first ep of "Here and Now" - it's basically "This is Us" but on HBO-roids. Depressingly raw (you've been warned), but promising. I actually hope its a limited run to keep the writing tight.
  11. Saw the first episode. Thought it was a hot mess. Found little to care about the characters, including the lead *shrug* Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Too Much Music: A Failed Experiment In Dedicated Listening - A fun read that brings up some interesting questions & thoughts for today. https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2018/01/16/578216674/too-much-music-a-failed-experiment-in-dedicated-listening
  13. Can you just send the cover back for proper replacement?
  14. Travelers (season 2) - another good round for Netflix. Just wish there wasn't such long times between seasons. Glad I re-watched S1,e12 to refresh my memory. Probably shoulda re-watched the entire first season. Still, good stuff.
  15. Both of those speakers (LS50's & Cicada's) seem to have very different ideal amp requirements. Given you have two other systems already, I'd suggest playing around with some interesting tube amps with the Cicadas for a different flavor. Maybe add a turntable?
  16. RIP Daliah Lavi - actress, singer, passed away at 74 years of age on May 4, 2017. This clip from the original 1967 Casino Royale was just about the sexiest thing I'd ever seen during my young, formative years: I have no idea if she was particularly talented otherwise. But the fact that I came across this news on a somewhat random web-search, & seeing that she had passed away recently with little, if any (that I saw) fanfare made me a little melancholy.
