  1. Came across this at the gas station today - identical (?) boxes mounted on all four fenders, pointing out...?
  2. Awesome karma Charlie. My cup still runneth over from your generosity, so not in... good luck to those that are:-)
  3. It’s a good thing you have some extra room in that cabinet - hang around here for any length of time, and you’ll need a bigger one though...😉
  4. If so, I need to NOT be invited... I count at least four (4) Mark Levinson amps, a big Krell, so Pass Labs stuff, and some REALLY nice speakers...
  5. Saw this on another forum... how many pieces of gear do you recognize?
  6. Towards the end of the article, the Bishop says he will be “consecrating a new alter soon”... Funny, I would think the existing one is already (and recently) consecrated...;-) https://www.foxnews.com/us/louisiana-archbishop-blasts-demonic-sex-act-in-church-orders-altar-removed-burned
  7. There’s a neat “homage” to Eddie in the first bit of Carolla’s podcast today with Dr Drew. Kinda made my morning a little brighter... https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/adam-carolla-show/id306390087?i=1000493860417
  8. Nothing takes me back to my high school days quite like Van Halen. My first concert was the 1984 tour by Van Halen, when I was a mere 14 years young. Many people don’t know that Eddie was originally a drummer, and Alex the guitarist... “Exposed to music early by their father, a jazz musician, and classically trained, Eddie and Alex Van Halen turned to rock music soon after their family emigrated from the Netherlands to southern California in the 1960s. In time Eddie, a drummer, and Alex, a guitarist, switched instruments. A demo financed by Gene Simmons of Kiss led to their band’s
  9. absolutely my friend, absolutely!
  10. As a devout charcoal BBQer (Good 'ol Weber kettle), I have been considering a pellet grill for a while now. I happened across an ad in the local classifieds for a Traeger grill, brand new, with a dent and a couple scratches. It's the Pro22, and retails new for $599. This one was $400 with cover and front shelf. After a lengthy conversation with @B-Man , I decided now was the time! I arranged to look at it one night last week, on my way home from work. When I met the guy in his driveway, he asked what color I wanted...? My bullshit meter went from about 10 watts (I'm always a
  11. You may have seen this video (It is a bit on the old side), but it is a PERFECT example of what the media is currently doing to the country. In this metaphor, the crow represents the media, riling up different groups until violence erupts, then egging it on...
  12. Just my opinion, but at 8k (and the gear sacrifices you’d be making) I’d need to be in love, not like...😉
  13. So over the past several weeks, I have had the opportunity to try a few different CBD products. I have outlined my experiences below for anyone interested... The first one I tried was Seven7h Sense in a “stick” (think deodorant) applicator. This one was a fairly low dose, only being 200mg of CBD in the stick. Pluses are an easy applicator and a nice scent. With a menthol base, it is very similar to Icy Hot. Unfortunately, I did not see much difference between it and Icy Hot:-(. Price $25 for 2.2oz = $11.36/oz The next one I tried was Proper Hemp CBD joint cream.
  14. That’s A LOT of gear to part with.... although those ARE nice amps - do you have prior experience with them? By that I mean are you buying them to try out and see if you like them, or do you know that you’ll love them, and they’ll be in your system for years?

  16. Does anyone know WTF the lyrics to Roundabout by Yes mean?? "Roundabout" I'll be the roundabout The words will make you out 'n' out I spend the day your way Call it morning driving thru the sound and in and out the valley The music dance and sing They make the children really ring I spend the day your way Call it morning driving thru the sound and in and out the valley In and around the lake Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there One mile over we'll be there and we'll see you Ten true summers we'll be there and laughing too Twenty
  17. Even though I disagreed with her vehemently on most every issue, I respect and salute her decades of service to the country. She reportedly had a pretty rough go of it these past few months - May she Rest In Peace....
  18. This CVS manager exercised unparalleled patience with this woman who chose to berate him for -gasp- calling the police on SHOPLIFTERS! I do not know if I would have been able to restrain myself the way he did... well done sir!!

  20. In our NHT/blown drivers saga, Tim @PhilDent and I learned that forcing speakers/drivers to produce frequencies that are not native to them requires A LOT of power (see the thread below). The speakers CAN be tamed with appropriate EQ, but the cost in efficiency is severe. In our case, a little pair of NHT 2.5i speakers were really pushing a pair of Silver 9t amps - as in needles bouncing 3/4 of max to produce modest listening levels. With new drivers and no Yamaha room correction, the needles barely hit 1/4...
