    I think I'm done chasing for a HD650 upgrade... I love my Verite, but I might just sell it to save some money for med school apps

    Using @purr1n’s 37Hz bass note in Doin’ it Right for testing. Great tip!

    have been scarce on forums and will continue as the lab is completely torn apart again. Didn't have enough fun with water damage ...

      My empathy as well. Water damage is ridiculous to deal with, hope repair and preventive maintenance go smoothly! I wish I could say advice to go over *every*thing with a fine-tooth comb is hyperbole, but you never know.

      Take care of yourself man, and best of luck.

      Very sorry, @atomicbob. Just too painful. Especially as you thought you had fixed before.

      Oh damn. I know exactly how you feel. We just got our new carpet laid last week after finally sorting out all the flood damage from earlier this year. Good luck getting set up again. It really does take its toll.

    If you want to look forward: the $40 Blon BL-3 are a great sounding single DD that I am presently analyzing for my blog. It was tuned by the guy who tuned the $270 Tanchjim Oxygen, which is on shotgunshane's iem list. Both earphones, hold yourself, sport the same DLC dynamic driver.

    Watched Parasite(기생충). This has to be one of the best films I've seen this year, it was one hell of a trip.

      @Syzygy psh, poisoning their impressionable minds so early with horrible media. Bad parent! (Kidding :))

      @obsiCO I personally found that one bit where the son and dad were just talking to be preachy, but the Asian in me took it in stride TBH (happens often enough). It has some compelling points, but I'd say it does toe that line of being self-important. Humour was fucking bonkers good.

      Hah, hardly poisoning! They watch "light" anime; we don't allow anything more (they're still young).

      Me, I'm more of a Miyazaki kind of guy.

      Hah, as expected of a good parent :)

      Honestly, with the exception of Miyazaki, Hosoda, Shinkai, and a few others who make "classics", every anime I like almost always has to have trope or fanservice-related caveats tacked on, it sucks. Notable example, I love Grimgar but hesitate to talk about it for the creepy sexualisation.

      I miss the days of Kino's Journey, Wolf's Rain, Ergo Proxy, Yugo the Negotiator, etc.

    I'm thinking of trying a DIY standing desk with the ikea top that I already have. Anyone here use one?

      I IKEA hacked a standing desk several years back using some legs and one of their TV stands, but found that it is almost as bad for your body to stand all day as it is to sit all day. I have been using an IKEA Bekant motorized one for almost 4 years now. If anyone spends a lot of time at a desk, I highly recommend one (not necessarily IKEA, there are lots of options).

      @fraggler do you stand or sit more in your setup? I know standing is "healthier" than sitting, but curious if people actually use the standing feature more often than the sitting

      When I am on conference calls or doing research, I tend to stand, but when doing anything focus intensive, I sit. In the end, maybe 60% sit, 40% stand.

      Seconded the lawyer advice. Whenever your in an accident (especially when there is an injury) and it wasn't your fault, lawyer up. Consultations are usually free.

      I’ve never had an accident of any significance before. How does a lawyer work when we’re dealing with the other driver’s insurance company? (We haven’t talked to them yet.)

      Seems to be mixed opinion even on this site. I'm glad I like the way it sounds. Anyway, changed my status to hungry shortly after realizing people were invested in status messages. I've never used social media, so the concept is new to me.

      Also, thanks.
