Oh snap, that is some fine shnizzle!  My parents have tons of records, and a couple of years ago I bought my dad a hi-end player: I now it's stupid but I swear the tone on those things are better than CDs.

Not stupid to me...the first time i listened to Janis Joplin's Pearl album on vinyl it brought a tear of joy to my eyeball.

Re: The Happy and Good News Thread!

Just got back from Blackpool, my first holiday (only for two days) in about 4 years. It was awesome, too bad the weather sucked but I got to see my first gorilla, shark, stingray, octopus and got to touch a starfish. Narrowly escaped the riots in London when I found out on the news, went to a Ripley's Believe or Not! museum which was pretty bad-ass and lost about £10 in the arcade, won it back again then lost it. What the heck, although I could do with that £10 about now. Haha. Although it was a good few days, spent 24 hours on the road so my ass is freaking numb but I seen a freaking gorilla which is awesome to me. big_smile

Albeit only exhibition games, there is football tonight, and 1 of them is the Eagles!  Yay!

Re: The Happy and Good News Thread!

I like watching those games because it's nice to see football again but then again I get bored knowing the outcome is useless.

Oddly, it's probably not the tone you're hearing but the result of what's known as The Loudness Wars.

Basically, some bright shmuck in the 50s thought it'd be a good idea to make his record "hot" by adjusting some frequencies in the master thereby making it stand out more on a jukebox.

This practice went on but not crazy until the advent of the CD where compression became more feasible due to the limitation of vinyl media. Now highly compressed music is all you hear and because of that, vinyl and old stereos "sound better"--which is subjective to begin with.

Anyway, that shmuck in the 50s wasn't as much of a shmuck as the one(s) in the 90s who compressed CD beyond recognition.

A great video of this is on YouTube.

Re: The Happy and Good News Thread!

Great news?

One of my cats, a Sphynx, has had a bad run of luck his whole life. Apparently he was the only surviving cat in his litter due to some illness. He has had a severe nasal problem for the almost two years that I've had him... and I was told by the breeder to expect him to live this way his whole life.

I've taken him to vets and specialists who don't know what is wrong with him. I've treated him like he's had Feline Herpes by giving him Lysine and that's helped with his symptoms.

I finally had a vet do a culture panel and the panel came back as some aggressive bugs that he's been fighting for the two years I've had him... unknowing twit that I am.

So, with an extreme dosage of antibiotics he should be able to kick this and be normal for the first time in his four year life.

I'm not happy with some of the details in this but ecstatic that it looks like this will "cure" his perceived permanent illness.

Re: The Happy and Good News Thread!

I hope the best for him.

FYI don’t let him near Dead horse he’s a feline gonorrhea carrier.

For those who do not like lawyers-
A Deleware judge has ordered the lawyers in a civil court case to a 'kindergarten class' this Sunday.

The agenda is hilarious, more so because it appears in the official filing!  lol
