    Anyone interested, local or out of town, or anyone already planning on going? Just saw tickets pop up for half price, I am possibly looking at that Friday to go.

    I finally found a leather strap that didn’t look like a piece cheap of plastic lol. From a place in the city called Ashland leather, the guys that run it also work for the Horween tannery.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    We have record breaking cold today! It's like a high of -20 lol - they cancelled my school and kids school today and TOMORROW preemptively with an announcement Tuesday afternoon - the last time we had cold like this was 5 years ago and not even then did they cancel two days of school ahead of time. Woke up today with the furnace working but blowing no heat had to restart pilot light, turn off and restart furnace, but was getting an error code that the intake/outtake pipes outside may be clogged. Fuck - bundled up and told the kids if I don;t get back inside within 10 minutes to send for help. intake into the furnace from outside was clogged with snow, so unclogged it and we are back in action. House has warmed up to 58 from the 50 it was this morning lol. Have the fireplace going and starting up the oven for lunch.

    Listening Chairs

    Hi! id love for anyone to share pics and recs of some quality listening chairs. I’ve been using an old wood rocker which actually isnt too bad, but it’s a bit of a family heirloom piece and I should get my ass out of it. As I’ve been looking, the search has been harder than I thought - I’m looking for an armchair but most I’ve found are so bulky they would just dominate the room. Many nice chairs seem to be made for dining table sets or kitchen tables which look odd. I would say I like the mid century style the most but know those can get pricey. Something classy but not bulky, definitely wanting something on the sleeker side but hopefully still comfy. My listening room isn’t huge (maybe 20 deer across the long way), and it shares with the fireplace, two couches on adjacent walls, as well as the TV, space is somewhat at a premium.

    Maybe this is a good time to repurpose the T3 design into a phono stage #wishfulthinking

    You’re right! Wow, never knew how popular the chair was truly. It really is very elegant looking and super comfy.

    I went with IKEA 🤦‍♂️ it was cheap enoughand actually passed the WAF! Very comfy, and very non-ikea looking. Has a slight rock to it too which I like.

    https://www.bludot.com/wicket-lounge-chair.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1bWY_fbj3AIV1bjACh3LkgHXEAQYASABEgJAp_D_BwE looks comfy! Reasonably priced too. They have a store in Lincoln Park so may need to try and visit.
