    The (Round) Football Thread

    Refuse to use the S word. Know we have some fans of the true religion, however misguided because they don't support Chelsea. Open for memes and banter!

    What an absolute peach of a counter-attack. So beautiful. https://streamable.com/41ser

    3D Headphones Startup Shutters

    It's almost like investing in something you know nothing about (other than you kinda like their style) where said investment confers no equity ownership or oversight rights or even basic contractual liability ... could have some potential downsides?

    Ipod Touch / Iphone

    Washed my AirPods in a shirt pocket yesterday by mistake, warm cycle. They still work fine. That surprised me.

    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

    Head-Case Fitness Tracker Thread

    Think I'm going to try one of the tracker rings, probably Motiv. I want the activity data but also want to wear a mechanical watch most days and don't like two-wristing it.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    It is great! Not sure I'm with you on the latter part, but it's a judgement call ...

    Nice! We’re having ahi tuna. The family occasionally demands a break from beef. Still good protein leverage!

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    As a callow youth, fresh off the boat from Africa in 1993, my boss at the time invited me to go to White Hart Lane with him to see a Spurs game and I thought it only polite to cheer for the home team. Twenty or so years later, in a fit of drunken sincerity, I confessed that single visit to one of my oldest friends (since preschool) -- who is a fellow Chelsea fan -- and he didn't speak to me again for two years. We're cool now but I'll never truly be free of the taint ...

    I'm impressed by the dude who decided to dispense with his shirt.

    Well if you’re going to have all that workout gear you might as well need it!

    RIP some fuck or another

    Ugh. Used to frequent Les Halles, er, frequently back in the day. It too came to a sad end. RIP Tony.
