    New Jenny Lewis album. Thumbs up. Appreciate the cover art, too.

    Happy Birthday Voltron!

    Happy Birthday counsellor!
  4. There doesn't seem to be one specifically for general chitchat that I could see? Doubtless will be heavily shoveled-upon if in error in this matter. Anyway, nice update of the 13" Macbook -- now Pro -- today I thought. $100 price cut and FireWire makes a comeback, adds LED backlit display, support for 8GB of RAM, and the new uber-permabattery (OK, not unmixed blessing). Also thought $30 for Snow Leopard upgrade was pretty fair. Leaner, faster and (allegedly) fixed fucking finder would be well worth that to me.

    What are you Grilling now?

  6. Feel like these guys maintain a very organic, analog sound. Does that make sense?

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Cali DMV: "Lol. Hold my beer." I've got 6 months left to exchange my MA license and the sense of dread grows stronger with every abortive attempt at online interaction. Might just drive on my British permit forever.

    Speaker Porn

    I admit it -- though primarily a headphone guy I enjoy drooling over pictures of beautiful speakers. For the artistry, for the engineering, for the lulz. I would enjoy seeing particularly striking examples you may happen to come across. These really struck me today. New Vienna Acoustics Klimt series. Concentric midrange/tweeter units adjustable for tilt and toe-in. Murata supertweeters. Eton spider-cone woofers. 22Hz - 100kHz. The black one makes me think of Barad-d

    I'd like to buy a smoker.

    Budget flexible, the more idiot-proof the better -- for obvious reasons. Pellet seems like the lazy fucker's way to go and MAK and Cookshack get good reps online. Opinions?

    It's a decent album. The bolo tie, however, was a mistake for him.

    Post what you're watching

    Completely in denial about my tendencies. Binge watched The Expanse. Binge watched Altered Carbon. I need moar Sci-Fi. Nudity optional but encouraged.

    The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    Cat looks exactly like British comic Kenneth Williams from the "Carry On" series. Random, I know.

    She's about as self-made as her dad's vagina.

    RIP someone or another

    ☹️ Also the lead "singer" from The Prodigy killed himself at 49.

    The analog thread.
