    To me, the most amazing thing is this kid thinks he's hot shit, like getting YouTube clicks is the best thing. Real life awaits, you fuckwit......
  2. Fuck in snow

    Ayup....dropped Karen off at the airport this morning, she is going with a friend to a resort in Mexico. I'm back home watching the winter wonder-fucking-land (OK, it IS lovely, from the inside).
  3. Focal Utopia headphones...with Beryllium driver

    Really?!!!! REALLY???!!!!! Why do you keep doing this to me?! Seriously, now I need to consider replacing the Black Diamond with one of these.....I loved the T3, just basically flipped a proverbial coin and kept the BD over that.....
  4. And now what did you do TODAY?

    That's awesome Jacob! Congrats on this and the other good things in your life, nice to see!
  5. Happy Birthday skullguise!

    Thanks all! Yesterday mostly sucked during the day. I had to work instead of taking the day off, and ended up having to escalate a VERY late-reported issue by our EU Finance team. Something they had almost a year to review was raised as an issue about 1.5 weeks ago, and will now likely cause us to miss a milestone of providing some important information to our CEO. Lovely.... But later in the day, had a really good 1-on-1 with our CIO, who noted how much praise I and our team is getting worldwide, and also will have our back on this latest issue. And at night, I got to have my annual Birthday Dinner at my favorite local fish restaurant, with the woman I love and my mother-in-law (who was on good behavior). Then capped by a short-but-sweet call from my son at college. This morning, after staying off Facebook for many weeks, I logged in to see almost 100 well-wishes. Cause for smiles!

    RIP Jean-Phlippe.....
  8. Focal Utopia headphones...with Beryllium driver

    Oh, agreed, hence my quotes..... I still remember Doug schooling Frank I. from one of the headphone review sites, when he thought the GSX-MK II was much more powerful than the ECP Black Diamond because it was bigger.... I got that BD amp, still love it to this day.
  9. Happy Birthday bosebuttons!

    Happy Birthday Tom! Maybe Chinese tonight, but definitely go for a good Pa-straw-mi on Rye soon.....

    FWIW, even the "lowly" Black Diamond - which kicks butt over a lot of other amps - works really well with the HD-800, too.
  11. What are you listening to Part the Third

    I cannot stop laughing..... And just because I'm in a German novelty Xmas mood, next up:
  12. And now what did you do TODAY?
