    Head Case Motorsports

    I think it is time to have a thread for everyone to discuss their cars, what they are doing to them and where we are going to have our first HC Road Trip Meet. Brent seems to think a trip to the Tail of the Dragon in NC/Tennessee would be in order. Maybe a road trip to a track for a track day? Of course a primary reason for this for me is to follow all of Nate's functional updates and Rex's rocket booster upgrades to see what works and doesn't. Not that I do not think your rockets will work Rex.

    What are you EATING right now?

    Beef Belly I think. Duck was tasty but not enough fat. Lamb was a bit too salty, fucking Mexicans. They were all outrageously good and better than anything that loser Brent will ever eat Because Brent is a worthless person.

    Tidal v. Qobuz?

    I have both at the moment but I tend to use Qobuz more. Only really use them through the Sonos interface so not really any difference in interface for me, Qobuz just always shows up first on my search results and there are more playlists coming into Qobuz that I would listen to compared to all the Beyoncé shit on Tidal. What I never use is my lifetime subscription to Roon as it is on a NAS now and terribly unreliable. Need to move it all to a workstation as I remember liking it more then the Sonos app for controlling the house audio.
  7. Hate my Orbi system. Have almost thrown it away at least three times. Will replace it soon with something that actually knows how a router is supposed to work and can work with a camera that is in direct line of site 18 feet away without constant dropouts. Not to mention our iDevices are routinely dropping from the Orbi to some of the Extremes I have running to actually have a somewhat usable WiFi in the house.

    Chord Mojo

    I have one on my desk now for listening to the various JH Audios. I think it is worthwhile for $400.

    Truffle and Bacon potato salad. Why isn’t all potato salad made this way?

    I decided not to necro-bump Bryan's 2009 thread as it was kind of specific and not in my budget. I played through high-school but have not played in 20 years. I am looking to get back into playing and I am looking for a great acoustic and a decent electric setup to start with. I am thinking about looking into a full custom for the acoustic but it is pretty hard to figure out how they handle from websites. A few decent shops around my parents place in Dallas that I intend to check out when I get back there this weekend. First on the list is http://www.theguitarsanctuary.com. Has a decent selection of factory and small shop guitars to try out. I know there are several players here at HC. Anyone have any favorite acoustic makers that I should look in to?

    What are you Grilling now?

    We looked at those. The neighborhood party had 5 of those set up for pizza and it was awesome. I really want a huge pizza oven, mostly for the aesthetics, but wanted to try it out cheap on the BGE first before dumping 15-20k into a pizza oven.

    I am lazy, Trader Joe’s pizza dough with garlic and herbs. It was quite good.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Yeah the old mailbox was ridiculously low. I think around 30 inches from the ground. No idea why USPS allowed it. I should have just started from scratch wit a new post, but I decided to try to put a new facade on first to see how that turns out.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Took about three hours to refinish the existing weird old house mailbox with a modern model. Tried to use the existing post, though it was super crooked so I might end up ripping it all off anyway. Before After I absolutely suck at carpentry and have none of the right tools.

    HDTV Suggestions

    After living with one for a week, I would say the Sony OLED beats out the equivalent LG in every way but the operating system. Android is such a clunky piece of shit for a TV...or phone. 🙂 The weird speakers built into the A9F are excellent for TV speakers.

    A little searing action for the Costco ribeye caps.

    What are you Grilling now?

    Not much as the grills were wrapped up just as it started pouring rain. Fucking Al Gore and his ManBearPig.
