  1. I’m so American at first glance I thought the guy in the gray coat was holding a gun. Obviously that would be awesome.

    I don’t regret preordering, and I had an excellent experience on a PC running a 9700k and a 2080. Minimal bugs and a generally clean, satisfying experience. I’m glad they put it out when they did, and I believe they did not expect the backlash they got. That said, I’m not sure it’s a “91” game even if everything works perfectly. I’ll revisit in 6 months or so once the DLCs drop, but outside of the core story and the better side quests it’s not a revelation. It looks fantastic, much better than anything I’ve ever played, but I think the artistic reach exceeded the gameplay grasp. A lot of s
  3. That system looks pleasant, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why. It appears to be a Crowley turntable or similar, set on the thin wooden floor of an entertainment center resting on a stack of books. It’s then plugged into a PA mixer. The digital source is an ancient tower computer running a pirated copy of Windows and controlled by a mouse and keyboard with cords draped across the floor. To hear that description you’d think this would look terrible, but somehow it’s humble and lovely and looks like a very nice way to enjoy some music until the lamps apparently melt your panels
  4. Obviously Anime is not for everyone, and “Attack on Titan” did pull an honorable mention, but if I’m ever talking to someone under 20 years old I am likely talking about “Boku no Hero Academia”.
  5. If it's younger males we're advocating for, can I recommend Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas' halloween costumes as a point in the Addams Family's favor?
  6. I recognize many of your memories are from the shows, which were well into syndication by the time i got to them, but for me the Addams Family was the 1991 movie. While I recognize this may be seen as heresy, can you fault me for preferring Anjelica Huston?
  7. This is lighting up a lot of "Best Of" lists lately, and for good reason. Approachable, delicately produced, and some blazing lyrics out of a clean little voice. Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher
  8. That entire setup is otherworldly cool. I would be jealous if anyone else had it, but I like you so much it just makes me happy to think of you enjoying what is almost certainly the best source gear available to man.

    Sad to hear it, Adam. My bugs have been few and far between, and the quality of the content is too good for me to turn away. I have 31 hours into the game now, which is riding the line between "I'm glad you enjoy your new game" and "hey, are you alright"? I love my wife, but she doesn't get me like Judy Alvarez does.

    I feel for folks playing it on last-gen consoles and having a bad time, but on my 2080 it’s going great. Brent has a saying for this...
  11. Quote: “I’ve been using over-ear headphones daily for around 16 years now, and every single pair I’ve used have come with a case that covers their entirety.” Yeah? Do you carry the box around? What shitty headphones are you buying?

    You should try letting someone else drive you, Steve. You might like it.

    Glory, glory, hallelujah. Frankly much higher than I was expecting.
  14. Much appreciated. I like my AirPods Pro a great deal, but largely because they’re small enough to just always have on my person. I sometimes go three days without putting on shoes lately, so my need for “mobile” headphones is not high.

    ^^ Well, that's some bullshit. Why do I bother living in the future?
  16. This was a great suggestion, Steve. I spent a few blissful hours twiddling knobs on VCV rack tonight and designing monosynths. Tomorrow’s project is figuring out how to wire it into Ableton and sync the clock so I can actually make some music and not just play basslines.
  17. Especially if you're playing back a lot of R2R tapes
  18. Yes, this is what I'm here for.
  19. If you like Electrocompaniet but don’t find their name Nordic enough, there’s always these guys: http://abrahamsenaudio.com/
  20. I’m itching to put some modules in a skiff and spend some more money making music I’m not satisfied with. Anyone here into modular?
  21. Weirdly, to get TB2 running to my Presonus Quantum the Apple TB3 to TB2 adapter was a non-starter. The dongle cognoscenti informed me StarTec has the preferred solution, and it works a treat.
  22. Really disappointing product from Behringer. I have a Behringer Pro-1, and justified it to myself by both deeply wanting the sound of the real Sequential Pro-1, and not wanting to find myself on the banks of Lake Chad or whatever with a busted OOP synth no one on the continent could service. For $300, it was an easy decision, and since the original was long since out of production I felt it was hardly a straight line to taking money out of the pocket of someone more deserving. This is a shitty move that really makes me feel bad about that purchase. I knew deep down Behringer was probably the

    I’m ashamed to admit I also have 12/9 - 12/11 off. I had use-or-lose leave, and my family and I can’t exactly go anywhere or do anything. The 9th is for my daughter, then all bets are off.
