I like it air popped, no oil, no butter, no salt, no anything. Just as nature intended, if nature ever intended people to take kernels of corn and place them in a high temperature environment.

 

Somehow, I don't think nature intended for us to do a lot of the things we do.

@compoopers, if you always have a bag/purse with you, then my suggestion would be the case. Hmm, other than that, maybe roll it small and not tight, put it in your small pocket on your jeans

Looks like I've put the finishing touches on my newest acquisition. I was recently able to grab an open box HE-400 from HeadAmp at a good price and I've now just finalized a deal with a user on a pair of 2 week old jergpads for my incoming HE-400. I was in sore need of a solid HifiMan in my stable. I think this headphone might just be it for awhile. Between the Q can, Paradox and Alpha Dogs, along with all my mobile headphones and my customs/IEMs I'm pretty well covered for awhile. The only thing I'm really lacking is a good entry level upper tier desktop DAC and amp. Schiits stuff is rather cool and Violectric, Nuforce, Centrance  and Peach Tree have always interested me. Not to sure what I'll decide on in the distant future.

A lot worse in big cities. The sheer number of vehicles plus the amount of people that are up and moving about around the clock. I come and go at all hours of the night but I never dash out for popcorn - neither eat or like the stuff. It makes for a great emoticon, though. :normal_smile :

When I'm out to enjoy cinema, I'm always amazed at the quantity of popcorn folks throw down. Drinks, too!

Spring will bring you something new! Can't wait to share in your joy...

Is there a way to make sure that my IEMs will be safe without too much hassle?

Be careful how you wrap them. You can stretch and kink the cable if you pull it taut while wrapping it around your fingers. That fatigues the metal in the wire and cause premature breakage.

Get a case. This is very good, especially for its US$2 pricetag. There will be plenty of room for conventional universal IEMs. (It fits my Noble 4C customs perfectly, but is a little too snug for my Hiditions, which are larger.) Lunashops has other case form factors, in case that particular one doesn't work for you.

Any Wu-Tang fans out there. They are selling a special edition of their next album in an extravagant case made by a British Moroccan artist.

If I buy one, will the RZA agree to stop making terrible movies?

post #21310 of 21761
There will BE only one, only one copy of that album will ever be made.

"The music will only ever have one incarnation.

It will not be made available digitally or in any other existing mass format.

After touring the album at festivals, museums, exhibition spaces and galleries for the public as a one off experience, it will be sold exclusively to one buyer."

Guess you don't like the texture? 

 

@DF hopefully the silent one does not mean allergies...

Good stuff, though nature can only do so much. Entropy and the human mind are spectacular :D

No problem with texture but taste.

I can take it if they insist. But I'd just much rather put my money elsewhere.

I don't like Hip-hop, but the box is nice. Now that would be funny, only one person can have the album, but they never open the case.
