        Between this and retconning stuff in Words of Radiance I'm beginning to develop continuity nervosa. Eh, cheaper than interconnects unless we're talking beautiful, limited-run prints.

      Furie (2019). Fucking amazing Taken-esque film but with better fight scenes. Really gets your blood pumping.

        The shots have style and the acting is pretty good for spoken roles. Bit of comedy, but mostly fist pumping awesomeness.

        Warning though, topic involved something very serious that actually happens (children being abducted for organs), so avoid if squeamish.

        Thanks, R! Picked it because I caught myself humming it and that's as good enough a reason for me, haha.

        I'm sorry to hear, as absurd as this virus is it feels like it should have been long dealt with if people were more conscientious. Luck and health to you and yours!

        Peppers are awesome, and I've recently gotten into snacking on crystallised ginger— refreshing taste! But yes all that aside I have honestly not left the house since early March (no reason to and can deal with school stuff from here) which, while reducing risk of infection, contributes to the topic of the music vid in original post :))

        The physical CD has a shorter tracklist/run-time. Shorter listen, more coherent. The track "Fear Inoculum" is a serious grower. Their last album has a Kyuss-vibe/desert Rock-vibe to it. Very rewarding album.

        Guess I'm happy that I'm on digital releases for now because... okay I was tempted to make a joke about growers but will abstain for the sake of the 9 year olds around ;)

        Only have two full listens under my belt but I'm kinda kicking myself for not checking it out sooner. The constant profile posts last year were too effective a deterrent, haha.

      Klipsches back, holy bassheads. Treble mildly irksome at loud (to me) levels, but perfectly tolerable. Haven't heard RTJ4 on these yet!

        I only ever really played with front filters on them but would love to mess with the rear side too. I'm sure something can be done to tame the treble or bring forward the mids. Drivers seemed quite capable.

        Same, don't want to mess with rear stuff cuz worried about irreversible changes in case screw em up. The treble is just tolerable at my usual volumes but these would be perfect for me if didn't need that one EQ tick for louder since I like how the midrange is coloured.

        @Lasollor haven't seen Goodnight yet I think, but it could just be information overload from watching way too many haha.

        Also really like VHS (2012) if not seen yet. Or heck, loads of good indie horror on YouTube! I am a massive fan of Crypt TV, really nice vignettes and costumes.

        Pretty sure that's deliberate. The Philippines is supposed to be the social media capital of the world so if doesn't surprise me that there are those who leverage those "skills". Of anything this is one field we're pretty savvy in so fair warning to other countries, these might be adopted eventually haha.

        I just found out that these retailed for USD4000 back in the early 2000s, which is well into WTF territory. Well then.

        Also, in retrospect, kinda sad to see how much information can get lost online.

        If someone succeeds with a massive global scale malware attack several magnitudes greater than the extent of wannacry then we could lose a lot of history much more important than headphone discussions. I suspect that many future archeologists will be digital excavators.

        That's contingent on a lot of things going wrong altogether, but point taken, there's more to be lost than audio gear curiosities. Still the sentiment remains that for as much as the world relies on this interconnectedness, it's a very fragile thing.

        I have a guy who is an assistant building manager at the local university. I call him first on just about everything, and then he hires the local plumber/electrician/carpenter (if he can't do it himself) - usually one of his friends.

        I pay him significantly - I could get most things done for 1/3, maybe 1/2 as much if I hired random guy based on price. BUT...my guy gets it done, right, the first time, so that is what I am really paying for.

        Always fancied myself as a top but okay.

        Hah! Kidding aside I knew nothing about audio when I got this so it meant nothing to me at the time, but it seems bottom-firing is generally dirtier sounding but more effective at getting "rumble".
