  1. Nope. Your best bet to reach him is through his eBay store.
  2. Chat box never loads for me - IPad, running current (13, I think) IOS... I just get the spinning wheel... Never mind - working now👍
  3. A few of you here know the background with my mother-in-law, but for those that don’t, she is the kindest, most giving person I have ever met in my life. Period. I am closer to her (and my father-in-law) than I have ever been to anyone in my own family. 16 years ago, she developed pancreatitis that put her in the hospital for 3 months, and almost killed her. 12 years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and after a long and painful fight (chemo, radiation, mastectomy), she beat it. 4 years ago, she was diagnosed with radiation induced sarcoma - that’s right, the radiation that killed the original cancer, gave her cancer. She beat that after surgery and a 20 square inch skin graft. Now, a few months ago, she was diagnosed with ANOTHER case of radiation induced sarcoma. She underwent surgery, and had almost 40 square inches of skin removed. After that surgery, she was put on a “wound pump” - a device that fills the wound void with semi-permeable foam. Then the entire wound is covered with an air-tight seal, and an external pump (rechargeable battery powered and the size of a woman’s purse) is attached to keep the wound at a negative pressure. This keeps the wound infused with blood, and is said to make the wound much more receptive to a future skin graft. Today we received news news that the wound pump has done such a good job, that she will not need a skin graft. I find this incredible news, that a wound TWICE as big as the first will require no additional surgery or graft. This news could not befall a more deserving person, and we are all feeling truly blessed, and I felt compelled to share with my extended family here. Thanks for listening!
  4. For this weekend’s selection, I offer a clever and intriguing “heist” film, appropriately titled Heist (not The Heist, or American Heist - Just Heist). This is a heist film that does not rely on shootouts, pulse-pounding building climes, or helicopter stunts to move the story along. It relies on clever planning, slight of hand twists and superb acting to deliver the goods (pun). This film is stacked with memorable performances - Delroy Lindo, Danny Devito, Rebecca Pidgeon, Sam Rockwell, Ricky Jay, and of course Gene Hackman. I can’t discuss too much without giving anything away, but if you like a good Heist movie, this one is well worth your time:-)
  5. I was merely taken by the size of the explosion. I was NOT interested in any political discussion, and really did not see it as potential to cause trouble. That said, I’ll lock the thread to keep the peace.
  6. This short video/story is disturbing, to say the least... https://taskandpurpose.com/russia-nuclear-accident-chernobyl
  7. I hate to cannibalize it if someone wants the whole thing... if you don’t get any takers for the complete unit, shoot me a pm:-)
  8. I need a driver for a signature - anyone know if they are the same?
  9. These guys have a pretty fun YouTube channel, going through abandoned/dilapidated ares. This one on the auto factories of Detroit is fascinating, creepy and heartbreaking all at once.
  10. I sure miss the days when more companies stood behind their products as well as Oppo. Sadly, that level of service is the exception any more, and certainly not the norm...
  11. I am envious. I am currently without a dedicated room, and I salivate at even the most basic dedicated audio room - one like yours is almost too much to take...😢 enjoy the space - it s gorgeous! PS - I love your vintage Infinitys
  12. For this weekend’s offering, I’m going to share one of my top 5 all-time favorite films (and that’s a very exclusive list!) - Cameron Crow’s 2000 film, Almost Famous. First and foremost, if you are in any way a fan of ‘70s rock, this film is a MUST SEE. It is the story of the real-life events of Cameron Crow as a young teen writing for Rolling Stone magazine while touring with The Alman Brothers (Though in the film, he tours with the fictitious band Stillwater). Crow knew early in his film career he wanted to make this film. He and his wife (Nancy Wilson of Heart) wrote the Stillwater songs on their honeymoon. The film is a wonderful coming of age story, set against the backdrop of the ‘70s rock scene. There are incredibly touching moments, great humor, and unequivocally the best soundtrack of any movie I’ve seen. All of the acting performances are top notch, but the performances of both Francis McDormand and Philip Seymour Hoffman are truly fantastic. if you have the option, the “Bootleg” version is highly preferable, as the extended scenes really add to the overall film.
