I keep a close eye on that channel. Trust me the guys a complete bum. His next video will probably be a silent AKG Sextette video followed by a bedroom rig video showing off all his ghetto-fi cans wink_face.gif

 

And yet, I cannot avert my eyes to save my life.  smile.gif

BTW, what's going on with the playlist thing-a-ma-jig?

Not sure, I'm guessing we're all waiting on Coq to finalize how we're supposed to go about it.

My favourite OST is Hannibal, kind of cheesy in a way but then again which OST isn't?

Oh so true, that's what makes them great!  I don't know if I have a favorite OST per se, but certain tracks from OSTs just stir up all different kinds of emotions in me as they relentlessly tug at my heartstrings.  More than a few of these are by Maestro Morricone.

It's long distance, but not terribly so. I'm going to see her in a few weeks and she's talked about driving over here.

 

*high fives*

 

I could do with a change of pace.

Be careful what you ask for because you might get it

 Goodie Store - we're having Dulce de Leche with Ol' fashion bread pudding. Gotta new DVD "Get Better Sound" by Jim Smith...we fixin' to work it out! My fellow members at Computer Audiophile been pushing me a bit, finally found some spare change in the tea tin to buy it.



Black Pearl Gaiwan


200x200px-ZC-50193b1d_BlackPearlGaiwan16Oct.jpg

That is a beautiful object, not sure I would trust myself to drink tea from it.

BTW any good threads on computer audiophile? Most of the time I visit that site I just see the masses of noob thread spawn "how do I play music from my mac?" Again and again and I just give up. There are a few gems though, like the thread on USB transports, but sooooo much garbage to wade through...

These are just my beliefs though, please don't take it as I'm to force my views on you at all, it just seems so very wrong to ask to take something of someone else's. Even as family I don't believe you should go beyond asking to borrow something.

 

 


I tend to agree with this, only very young children would ask for things, it does seem very rude to me as it puts the owner of the item in an uncomfortable position.

 

I really did simplify things a bit. My guests sometimes do get overcome with an innocent child-like wonderment. You'd be surprised how many people see Gaiwans in film and restaurants and don't pay 'em much mind. But they rarely see 'em in a different setting like a home. I believe I mentioned previously they're not even into tea. But the wares themselves is art.

 

Often times it's me recognizing what's behind their excitement and giving something special to someone special.wink.gif So yes, I've a hand in my own painted corner. I really do have wonderful guests.

 

Also, I never expected my vendor to just up and stop making my favourite bowl one day. This summer, I'm gonna approach my guy in China (electronically, haha) and ask for a custom order. The Pearl white dots are actually raised, lending grip to the bowl.

 

@ CA, look under the tab "What's New?" to scroll through everyone's latest from the Activity stream and pick your interest.

lol. This is just like the anime thread. At a much slower pace. 

Anywho, I think cavalli audio should make an amp named the Liquid Laughter Has a nice roll to it, if you know what I mean wink.gif

Going to do some crowd sourcing here...

Trying to make some table ID cards for my meet next weekend, but wanting a bit better results than last time. What I want is a single fold 8.5x5.5 (normal sheet cut in half, then folded in half) in portrait with the image and text on the bottom half (since it will be folded). I'm using 110lb index so it is plenty stiff to hold itself up without drooping, but my problem is software related. Last time I just used my Open Office word processor and pressed enter a bunch of times to get it down to the right area, put in the picture and the name. This 'worked' but as pictures were different sizes it ended up moving the line around because it's a word processor, not Photoshop/etc. What I would love to have is a somewhat lightweight free program that will let me set vertical 'tab stops' for lack of a better term or some other method so that I know everything lines up exactly the same on each card. I couldn't find anything like this in Open Office, so I'm guessing I need some kind of image manipulation program or a card/poster designer program of some kind.

Any ideas?

Sounds like you need something like Scribus - http://www.scribus.net/canvas/Scribus. It's a layout software, open source and free.

First 2 trials on normal floppy copy paper... not trying to be too complicated. Opinions on size/placement? CD jewel for reference on top of my dad's old speakers I barely use anymore.

I'm thinking bigger is better, but needs a bit more room between the avatar and the name.
