To be fair, the emoticon you chose rolled his eyes. That's not friendly and likely the cause of the misunderstanding. If it were a smile, the read-intent would have been different.


Furthermore, English is just my third language in which I have no trouble expressing myself in. But culture is something completely different. Americans have very little sense of humor when it comes to their ego. Embarrassing situations, especially concerning bodily functions are supposedly hilarious, but oh my, just don't mock someones property because it's an extension of their.... (you can fill in the blanks). Europeans do not exist. And even in my little (17million ppl) country we have about 8 different (native) cultures with different mentalities, languages etc. With one common 'flaw': we don't beat around the bush. We know everything about the US, it's origins, constitution, demographics, it's culture. And you probably don't even know what our country is called. So there. It's a big world.


It's rather astounding how you can group Americans into a single demographic black hole. I speak more than 3 languages and I've lived in Italy, Austria, and Eastern Europe, aside from the US. This is a friendly forum and I won't dissect the logic above, but I will say that I (as an American) find your comment very offensive.

Generalities.  I guess all Dutchmen use them, along with smoking dope.  Not that there's anything wrong with smoking dope.

:D

Again, that is not what I was saying. What I mean is that most Americans speak only English and have no idea just how many cultures there are in Europe, even in such a smal country as mine. Here you can follow the border between different cultures. In America everythng is jumbled all together like a big milkshake. A Chinese is from China and speaks Chinese, an Indian is from India etc. What I talked about with an old friend yesterday (one that seen a lot more of the world than I) is that Americans and Dutch look the most alike but in essence are the most diverse in personality.

You're fine.  One of the things about American culture is that many of us are hypersensitive about our "exceptional-ism", and since our culture also reinforces tribal behavior, some of these readers won't accept you meant no offense.  In a way, they're sort of proving your point.

I apologize in advance if you've already answered this question, but what are those lights?  I think I need/want one.

As nice as those lamps are, I think this might work as well and is little less expensive.

Wow, your comments make you appear very ignorant about America and Americans, but at least you have a nice turntable!

Please stop this discussion. It is offensive and not appropriate for this thread.

The comment about me being ignorant about Americans is just a gotspe. I must say I'm really offended by such an ignorant remark. wink.gif

I agree about stopping that stupid discussion. Not about the offensiveness, but its plainly off-topic. What iked me is the (to me rather obvious) lack of insight of what is at hand. Remember Rene Magrittes painting - ceci n'est pas une pipe? La trahison des images? This is not my turntable, it's just a picture of it.


This is more what this topic is about (and the background for my laptop that plays the HD-collection). So there, end of discussion, full stop, fugeddaboudit.

Love the setup and picture. Would you mind posting a full resolution version? Would love that as a desktop background as well.

Zedd's Clarity (Deluxe Edition) is available for preorder.  Very exciting, for me anyway.  I still listen to the .mp3 version of this album regularly, and he's adding some new stuff.
