I'll have to revisit it tomorrow morning with the GR07 as well to see if my comparison between these two 'phones still has merit. smile_phones.gif

I saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a warm-up to the Rolling Stones in 1994 at the Rose Bowl. I think that was when Navarro was with them. I kind of felt sorry for them - it wasn't their crowd - it was mostly oldsters (like me) and we were just waiting for the Stones and didn't really a cr@p about the Chili Peppers. The Stones show was great!

lol, my parents always tell me about how they used see them play in clubs in Manhattan back in the 80's. Gets me so jealous (>.<)

Speaking of cats, we have a kitty that sticks around our dining hall every day. It's a very cute little guy, and very friendly.

I've seen some interesting opening acts over the years. I saw Guns n' Roses open for the Stones in the late 80's at the LA Coliseum, and I saw AC/DC get booed off the stage in Fresno in the late 70's when they were opening for Aerosmith! biggrin.gif

Talk about a speckled fireball, this guy plays and runs until he collapses from exhaustion and falls asleep, and then he gets up and does it all over again. We had to have her old big orange cat Chester (22lbs) put to sleep last year and she was devastated, but now she's ready for a new one. So far Jackson, my black shorthair, doesn't know quite what to think of him. Shiva's tried to play with him, but he doesn't want any part of that and just ignores the little guy. heh

Aww Cute ^^

It seems silly to me when I think about it, but often one of the first questions I will ask when I meet people is what music they listen to, and then I make inferences based on genres and artists. I feel like if they listen to similar music to me, they might be more likely to have had similar experiences and similar outlooks, or have similar friends or pursue similar kinds of media. They might come off as more or less adventurous, more or less sentimental, more or less troubled, etc.

 

This kind of thinking doesn't really seem to hold up when I think that different people have different reasons for liking the same thing, and also that I try to give every genre a chance and I believe that having a broad musical taste is a virtue. Even then I can't stop myself from using music as a litmus test.

 

Nope, not really.

 

Choice of music has always seemed rather personal to me so I rarely talk about it in specific and don't think it's something to judge someone by.  What music I like is mostly based on difficult to articulate emotional responses and I find myself ill equipped to have a discussion about why I like what I like.  I could barely even tell you anything about my favorite bands because I go out of my way not to learn anything about them besides when their next album is out.  Rich, famous, and creative people are prone to doing bat$#!+ crazy things and I don't want anything else to contaminate my experience of the music.

 

The closest thing I have to judging people by their taste in music is a smoldering hatred of "classical snobs".  The kind of people who say that people who listen to "lesser" genres shouldn't bother with better gear.  I don't care what they think of what I listen to but I get angry because n00bs occasionally believe them and get cheated out of potential enjoyment.  That's hardly everyone who listens to classical, even as their main genre.  I usually get suspicious if the only thing they mention is a detailed list of classical's subgenres though.

 

I don't really know if that counts or not

I for one, will never forget that day in 2013 when Columbia's warp core suffered a tragic breach in atmosphere, devastating large portions of Texas and Louisiana in the resulting antimatter explosion...

I dunno. That's a full frame camera man. It seems like a good price to me to get some of the best sensor tech in the world, though I don't think I'd personally be ready to move up to full frame.

 

I think after all these coverages I may just get the NEX5R and skip the 6. I'm not too sure the addition of the viewfinder and the loss of touchscreen / 180flip LCD is really going to work for me. (I don't actually like shooting through the viewfinder much, and adore the wonderful ways I can manipulate the NEX5n LCD haha.)

 

I need to stop oggling over camera gear and actually start making the things I want to make though. :P

I'm sure its a great value for its price-range but just very expensive regardless. Then again the very people spending that kinda money would look at us in disbelief on what we spend on our audio gear ;).

Lol. If you think that is expensive, don't look at how much the lenses cost XD But yes, in absolute terms, that is expensive. Unlike audio gear though, this stuff can pay for itself.
