2008 Wall Calendars for Audiophiles!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have posted this on a couple other forums but this seems like a good place to do it as well since i would imagine theres more of a geekier crowd here, Like myself that would enjoy them.

But anyway, I have put together a 2008 calendar made up of pics of different things that make up our crazy hobby. I did all the photography myself with the gear I have so I tried to keep it a bit generic so there are no brand names or such displayed with the hopes that more people would be able to relate to what the pictures are about which is more the hobby itself and less the actual peice of gear.

Anyhow, I'll let the pics do the talkin'

You can get these directly from Cafepress, Its not practical for me to have a bunch of these things made up somewhere locally and then ship to everyone so this route is the best way to get my beloved little project out there! I just got mine in the mail today and the quality of the calendar itself is just as good as anything bought from a store. The picture quality is good, But they didnt come out with the same resolution as on the computer. These are full bleed meaning that it looks like a store bought professionally done calendar. I took all the pics with a 10mp DSLR and took care when resizing to preserve quality so enjoy!

PS, this is not a commercial thing. I just wanted a calendar that i hadnt seen available so i made it myself. And I figured others might want one too. If i end up making enough to cover the cost of my own calendar i will be happy

That's really cool looking.

I'd appreciate a head-fi specific calendar though, enough to order one.

Thanks, I could do a headphone related one but It would be a real stretch to try and make an entire years worth of pictures from the limited headphone stuff i have.

It's always good to have household items related to your passions (like the Nixie tube clock).

When I worked for Xerox, I used to fix Xerox machines at Kinkos, and they had a deal where you brought in 13 pictures and they made a calender for you.
It would be nice to take high quality pics of you favorite gear and make your own personalized calenders.

Moving this to General. This forum is for personal items for sale.

I always thought those nixie tubes were one of the coolest things ever. I thought about making a clock like that at one time.

Pricey, but a tube lover's dream. Here's the manufacturer and explanation of how it works.

Sorry for the OT.

...or, you can buy a kit and make your own!

Hmmm. What if there was an official Head-Fi Audio-phile calendar? People can submit sexy pictures of audio gear, and the best 13 are chosen to do the calendar with. You can do this by polling, I guess...

I'm drooling at the thought of high-quality, high-resolution pictures of bling gear on my wall to be stared at 24/7. Why, I'd get little to no work done!

Especially when 300B's are on the wall... mmm, 300B's.

That's pretty cool. I don't need one. I don't need one. I don't need one.

It's seductively calling your name:

"Wahayne...Waahaayne"..."take me home."

It's a good idea. I'll make sure that my Grado will be in June section. Who's keen enough to start the thread and fix the calendar thing?
