The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 284  

post #4246 of 21761

Drawing from both lists I think I have... 5 of those?  I didn't actually listen to a lot of cool new music this year.

Actually, the original post said "Top 50" before head-fi decided to start flaking out on my end. Hence the double post above as well. I had to use an older edit before it was expanded to try to get the formatting right, and overall it was a pretty frustrating process because I had to edit it probably 10 different times because the formatting kept acting screwy.

Happy New Year!

 

I won't be doing any top 50 lists or anything, because I find it too hard to choose between different kinds of music. Besides, most of my music listening has been with either music from the 80's or moombahton.

 

Oh well, I bought an Xbox 360 with a few games. Halo 4, Crysis 2, Skyrim, The Witcher 2, UFC, Battlefield BC2, and so on and so forth. There are quite a few games that I have missed since getting my second RROD, so I'll have to play quite a bit in the nearest future.

 

Oh, I can do a top list for games:

 

1/2 . Halo 4/Crysis 2

^Crysis 3 will be out in a few months, and it looks awesome.

 

As for Claymore, it has one fatal flaw: Priscilla is soooo obscenely powerful, that nobody can beat her. Poor Clare doesn't stand a chance.

 

MF, if you haven't watched it, give "A Woman Named Fujiko Mine" a shot. Great retro style art, and Fujiko kicks @$$.

Your post made me finally break down and get that Swans album. Oh holy god it's good.

It also may have partly been because we were in the Montana wilderness, 500mi from any other type of food that wasn't still running around under its own power.

Oh don't get me wrong, it's a welcome slip.  Not that size/quantity is everything, but in this case, 50 > 20 definitely.  And yeah, I'm with you on the formatting weirdness.  For me there are certain formatting tricks that only seem to work once (i.e. they stick if I post right away).  Once one or more "previews" are involved, all bets are off as the rich text things munges the post beyond all recognition.

 

I've been pre-occupied with life's myriad directions lately... so only now am I starting to give The Flying Lotus's album a listen.  Not surprisingly, its sounds better via my better cans.

Oh well you didn't mention that "spice" earlier.  That makes everything taste better!  BTW, best curry I have ever (EVER) had was on a Pakistani International Airline flight, no joke... so I understand the good things happen in unexpected places thing (Montana or otherwise).

Sorry for the late reply and bringing this up 4 pages after the fact, I've been otherwise distracted...

Interesting.  This is pointing more and more to my 'Not all USB ports are created equal' theory.  Or does it have to do with power?  Bad power leads to bad USB out?

I just ordered the 4.Ai a few weeks before Christmas.  Yes, it's y'alls fault ksc75smile.gif

I think you missed my post where the ellusive hum came back the next day.

 

As it was here one day, gone the other, and seems completely unrelated to the Stello now, I'm fairly sure it's just something going on elsewhere that the ECBA itself is picking up. 

 

Switching to the Stello has, however, stopped my DAC from being all buggy at random.  So it would seem that you had a better USB connection going than I did.  As for whether or not the Stello has improved my SQ... idk.  I get this feeling that things are more focused, but it's subtle.  I hate A/B testing lest I'd get another USB cable, plug it in, and switch modes to verify this.

 

I still have that Aqvox USB power dealie on the way so there'll be more voodoo trickery to come.

I'm obsessed with this song.

Just finished my marathon of a soft sci fi space opera anime with a dash of yuri undertone in it. Spending the arrival of the new year befitting for an anime lover.

The decision to change the ending was made because they only had so many episodes green-lit, so they wanted to wrap the series up after the assault on Pieta. Otherwise they would have just left the series on a rather unsatisfying note IMHO, which is what happened for instance with Deadman Wonderland. However they did leave the anime at a place where a sequel series could easily launch.

 

In the manga I really loved the stuff with the resurrected former number 1s. Hysteria the Elegant and Roxanne of Love and Hate had great personalities (Roxanne was like Ophelia on steroids). My favorite however was Cassandra the Dust Eater just because of her absolutely ridiculous technique and awakened form.

I really liked that anime and do agree. They were pretty faithful but of course they needed to wrap things up quickly.

 

While the ending for the anime wasn't very good. The pace and current trajectory of the manga isn't a Golden Child either.

I'm at a really boring party right now. Thinking about ditching with some folks and just hanging out on the roof of the parking garage.

 

I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on the JH16 Pro Freq-Phase before the New Years special expires. Can't decide what to go with...

 

 

1000

 

transparent "whitegirl" shells and plates

 

1000

 

opaque "whitegirl" shells with transparent "whitegirl" plates

 

1000

 

transparent "sucker_punch" shells and plates

 

1000

 

transparent "redgray" shells and plates

 

1000

 

transparent "deadwood" shells with transparent "shipyard" plates

 

 

* * * * * * *

 

I'm kinda leaning toward either "opaque whitegirl shells w/ clear whitegirl plates" or the "sucker_punch shells / plates"....

post #4260 of 21761

I vote all clear or all sucker punch. :)

 

I'm trying to decide whether to go for the 8.A's before the Christmas sale is over. rolleyes.gif
