I love cross country skiing and rowing because it allows me to get away from everything, even my own thoughts. Just enjoyment. Jan 21, 2021 at 10:08 PM

        Biking man, just stepping on my bike and going places. Sometimes people forget the how important it is to immerse yourself in your surroundings and just let go of your ego.

        For me it had been archery, concentrating on the shot makes everything go away. And more recently out on photography walks/hikes.

        Golf for me! Which I miss in the winter... but yes getting outside and focusing on a sole item is therapeutic.

        People come, people go. I do not delete accounts, but did so out of respect for JK47 and his contributions. People leave at a point when they go into speaker world. He had some pretty good stuff and nailed down what he liked. He will be missed.

        My parents didnt like it as much as me and my sister. They couldent seem to get why anyone would join the fight club in the first place. Or why anyone was doings the things they were. Maybe its an age thing, or the fact that they have long since settled down into society, idk.

        The P-I blog post is pretty long at this point, with lots of points-of-view and mostly respectful, reasoned discussion.

        It's pretty refreshing to be able to find that anywhere these days.

        I think the difference here is that people are thoughtful, tend to reason about things, don't expect others to think exactly like them, and don't shit on others for having a differing opinion.

        Changstar was a bigger minefield. With age and experience you learn to focus more on what works rather than what sounds good. Without history we will never learn...

        I prefer the Fish years as well, but still enjoy the later stuff. Don't have any of his solo stuff though. Not sure why, I should, but it is on my list now.

        Glad I ripped the 1980's CD of Misplaced Childhood. I need to get some of Fish's solo stuff.

        It makes me sad that we have to deal with the loudness war still.

      Got a pair of HD580 again. Honestly the HD580/HD600/HD650 are some of the most comfortable headphones. And good.

        I wish their earpads were just a tad bigger. For normal ear sizes I'm sure they're great. :) HD800/S have been the most comfortable for me. If only they sounded like Utopia.

        That’s another reason for why I stick to them and not spend more on headphones. They’re light, comfortable, and sound amazing with tube amps.

        Such a good movie!! The shot of them waking down the stairs with all the soldiers suddenly silent and still all taken in one shot is one of my favorite shots in all of modern cinema. I love long shots like that. So hard to do.

        ^TL;DR - Good luck even breaking 40fps even at 1440p if you don’t have a $1500 GPU.

        Man, that's brutal. Times like these I'm glad I use a 1080p hi-hz display. A 2060 keeps that fed at ~85-90fps with psycho SSR and a lot of the other heavier settings at high or medium. DLSS quality saves it from starting to lag under 60 and it even looks more natural in some ways.

        But that makes me think 1440p is doable. RT would be pushing it. And it's just like last time, even with the new cards RTX doesn't keep up at 4k. Can't say I'm surprised at this point. Nvidia really does have you by the balls on this one.

        I like most of the Nikka's. The straight from the barrel is the most intense, coffee grain is good too, and the Taketsuru is mild and super drinkable.

        Haven't had a chance to try to Hibiki, but had bottles of both the Hakashu and Chita a few years back and enjoyed both. Price/quality ratio on both was strong
