  2. What are you listening to right now?

    Another great find from Bandcamp - Some really good progressive trance / Downtempo music from French producer Akshan

    I said to a fat girl today, "You're a big girl!" She replied, "tell me something I don't know!" I said, "salad tastes nice"

    Interesting comment as my room has been treated with a rockwool infused false partition at the rear. This was more to do with sound reflecting back in to the tenants bedroom. What I do notice with my Neats is an occassional reverberation (presume room node) happening? Although the rockwool was compacted in nice and tight. Side positioning is definitely compromised on one side. I really need to get my room measured to see what's happening before looking more deeply at these. Tempting, thank you. Never been to the Channel Isles, I'll look in to a mini break. It should be somewhere I visit. Thanks for the offer. That's the worry, I don't want a sideways move and then there's always the need for a better amp. I like the EAR, this hobby does tend to take over when the bug bites!

    I keep hearing great things about these speakers and annoyed myself for not trekking to Kegworth to hear them. I wish to test them with my Ear 834 integrated valve amp. Although stats say it can handle all loads it's only rated conservatively @ 50W. I'm wondering if this is enough and if anyone has a pair in a domestic environment nearer to Dover than those already on this thread? And of course who'll invite me!

    It was my first day in prison and I was feeling really nervous. An old con sensed I was scared so he came up to me and said, "Look, prison isn't so bad, you'll see..." "Really?" I asked him, perking up a bit. "Yeah," he said, "For instance, do you like football?" he asked, to which I nodded yes... "Well," he said, "Every Monday we play football right out there in the exercise yard... And do you like movies?".... I nodded yes and told him I loved movies. "Every Tuesday," he said, "We watch the newest action movie in the auditorium... And do you like Italian food?" he asked me. "Sure, I love Italian food," I replied.... "Every Wednesday the cafeteria serves lasagna and spaghetti." I was now feeling a bit better. The old con then asked me, "Now let me ask you, are you a homosexual?" "No," I replied. "Oooh, you're not going to like Thursdays then."

    I need to re-home a dog. It's a small terrier and it tends to bark a lot. If you're interested, let me know and I'll jump over next door's fence and get it for you...

    If you ask me & not many people do; this album has one of their greatest songs ever produced. It builds beautifully to a climatic ending, it has cow bells on it and unfortunately Ozzy will never be able to sing it live ever again. Megalomania. Top choice... I'll match you with this corker...
