A couple of sample entries from HeadRoom

HeadRoom Staff Sample Entry #1

"Nerdy techno-monks at HeadRoom scurry day and night to ready my head for the bliss awaiting. I hadn't though that masonry done at the tip of a smoldering soldering iron would would velvet line my noggin so well. Thanks, geeks, I'll light a candle and leave a nickle in your box for the refreshing stay."


HeadRoom Staff Sample Entry #2

It all started with an SR60
Lying in the dark
when something just hit me
It sent shivers down my spine
made my hair stand on end
I had never experienced such emotion within


I thought I had found
how music should be heard
and wanted to share
with the rest of the world


I would listen with friends
I would listen alone
until someone forgot to
turn off that damn phone


I tried to go back to my trusty old Sony's
but my brain kept sayin' this sound is phony.


I hopped on the net
did a search for noise cancelling
stumbled upon a picture,
a man in a tutu dancing


He wore big headphones, HD580's
I imagined they scare away all the ladies
but I looked around the website some more
and found photo's of ladies with headphones galore.


It looked like a joke but I scrolled on down
to find headphone geeks that live in my town.


They described a headphone that seemed like a wet willie
and I knew for sure that these geeks were silly
but after some convincing, I obliged
a tad disgusted but to my surprise


It sent shivers down my spine
made my hair stand on end
I had once again experienced
such emotion within.


So I was careful enough to not sound like a jerk
and was lucky enough that they gave me some work


My responsibility is to be
the biggest headphone geek I can be
And by bringing sanctuary to you,
HeadRoom does for me.

Well, there will be two winners and graphic design entries are allowed. I've seen a ton of portable rig pictures and some that could possibly take the cake so, spice it up a little and make it a contest. How's that for leading you on?

We need Edwood in here with his awesome photochop of him in the Edbot grooving to tunes. In hamster form of course. Now that's a nice sanctuary - the ultimate Hamster Cage!
