Introductions & Fair Warnings!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I figured we should have a spot to introduce ourselves formally for those of us who haven't met, either in person or through interactions on the forums. This may also be a good place to issue challenges to one another, be they rig-related showdowns or good old imbibery oneupmanship!

My name is Ryan and I am an audioholic.

I'm attending with five main goals in mind, hopefully somewhat concurrently:

- Sleep deprivation
- Sonic euphoria and rigidly unstructured market research for future wallet drainage
- Lessons in musicology and general headbobbity
- DIY motivation and solder-burn-tolerance building exercises
- Exposure to some of the fine American micro-brews we tend to be deprived of here in Canada, and of which we hear so much from time to time around Head-Fi

Greetings from Canada, eh? Will there be donuts?

There will be all of the above...and donuts.

This is a great idea! Even at local and regional meets, I never have enough time to: 1) listen to all of the gear, and 2) meet all of the people, let alone to spend any meaningful time chatting with them.

I'd be in favor of an open mike "happy hour" where basically everyone (even the shy people, who are few and far between) can say a few words, like "Hey I'm having a great time, I'm Wmcmanus in case anyone has yet to have the distinct displeasure of meeting me." Kind of a name and face association thing.

We've not done that before, or at least not at any of the meets I've attended. The name tags help but there are hundreds of people so an official "meet and greet" type of happy hour would be great.

Excellent idea!

I'll have to think of something long-winded and witty to say...

You got some darn fine Canadian Belgian beer: UNIBROUE - HOME PAGE

Funny, I never liked hockey until I moved to Texas. Now I'm a huge fan. What does that mean?

In any case, I'll be happy to share some American/Canadian/Belgian/German beer with 'ya (and/or demonstrate how to [not?] burn yourself with a soldering iron)...

Ah, Unibroue make some fabulous beers. La Fin du Monde remains one of my favourite "desserts". As for hockey, I'm a Toronto fan. I don't want to talk about it. *koff*

Just the same, I will happily take you up on both of those offers, Pete. I could never turn down a nice Belgian or Trappist beer... and something tells me you know a thing or two about [not?] getting burnt.

This is very true!

But at least when drunk you only slur your words typing

My name is...ah, screw it. Most of you guys know me already.

My goals at CanJam are simple:
- audition electrostats
- get drunk & party
- learn to do something DIY-ish

If you are in the mood for a Belgian beer, in Pompano Beach about 15 -20 minutes from the hotel is a great beer bar called Brother Tuckers. Florida can be a beer wasteland but this place is Top Notch.

Hey my name is Scott. It's not my fault that I am addicted to Sound. It all started when I was 3 years old and my parents gave me a small transistor radio-remember them in the 1950s. I am attending Cam Jam for a mumber of reasons.
-to hear the new Stax Omega that just came out.
-To hear the Sony R10s.
-To meet new friends
If you member the San Jose Headfest- to get propositioned!
-I don't drink too much and I am not renting a car- but any in house hotel drinking could be possible.
-To smile and thank god I am still alive
-to visit my parents who live in Ft. Lauderdale.
-To come back to NYC and tell all m friends who are sound freaks that they missed a really great event
-To get one of those ID Tags that they
have.
-To see if the hotel food is more or less expensive than the food in Manhattan,NYC

I will let you know if I can think of any more reasons in a future post.

That's about it Scottsmrnyc

Ah, so it's a pub! I had heard the name before, but presumed it was a beer/brew pub. And one with Delirium on TAP? Sweet mercy the mead gods may bring the hammer down in the morning, but they seem to like it in Florida!

Now, will there be time to actually get out there... hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
