I may have PAID somebody to draw this for me, yup I really am pants-on-head retarded
See, I've been recruiting Chinese artists to draw for Eden of Xeno (EOX). I do this as a favor for their CEO, since I got to know her from working on the Hanabira translation and she is going to pay me (a bit) for some manga I'm editing in Chinese for her. So I got to know this artist, who seems to make a living drawing stuff for people to pass off as their own online (and have people go gaga over their l33t drawing skillz) and I brokered a drawing deal between him and EOX. After I did v.1 of my pantsu Mai (which was just the picture of the head-fi wedgy photochopped onto her head) I got the idea to ask him to draw it for me. He said he'd do it for free as a favor, but with the amount of modification this went through I ended up asking the CEO to mail the artist an extra $100RMB for this. I told her I'd pay her back. I think she won't ask me to actually pay her, since she owes me favours for doing this recruitment stuff on my own time, but I'm not counting on it
Dammit man, WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
I... sell shoes?
After the EQ argument in the MMM vs LCD-3 thread, I traded pm's with kiteki. I told kiteki to try my EQ method (like he already said he would). kiteki told me to try some real phones. So I did.
Now all I need to complete my pants-on-head clown image among head-fiers is to polish that up into a full blown shootout writeup between the four phones and post it in a new thread outside. ("outside", coz this here is the loonie asylum or something ) I've already decided on the title:
"Philips on Mount Akina: SHE3580 A-spec vs UM3X vs XBA-3 vs IE80 vs FXD80"
...because I felt like Takumi driving the wheels off his beater AE86 to beat every single supercar that dared challenge him on Mount Akina...
