It really is. Even at my tender age, I look back and think of things I could have done differently earlier in life.

 

I can only imagine what it will be like to get old, when my mind will still be fresh, but I'll be trapped in a body that limits what I can/can't do/eat/drink, etc.

 

The day I can't wipe my own butt is the day I commit suicide.

I'm 42 years young and can still out mosh a 16 year old any day of the week. Yes the next day I'll barely be able to move but that's not the point

don't do suicide. wrong way to die man angry_face.gif! Just take it as it comes. Don't think about that stuff now. The journey not the destination. What you do in life, not when it's done. 

 

 

JUST HAD A WATCHGASM. New episode of unicorn <3

In the case of videogames, I'd argue that making the good decisions harder is essentially stripping them of ambiguity, basically acting as a red flag for what the developer often thinks is the just action. I think the developers realized this and struggled with it in the first game.

 

I don't think that doing the right thing should instrinsically be the harder thing. But the result should, as you point out for Mass Effect, at least be different. If moral dilemmas are meant to be an interesting gameplay dynamic they should actually, you know, be interesting. 

 

I liked the morality(?) system in Catherine, but amusingly did not really want to end up with either of the choices in that game.

Ahhh, yaoi. Fun fun. When I was the art director of our university Anime club (and a yaoi fangirl was our president) we were known among the universities in Sydney as THE crazy yaoi club. 

 

We were also, by far, the largest university anime society lol, with a higher membership then all the other clubs combined. I like to think it was because we were just so crazy. (No not everyone was a yaoi fan).

Some people believe that their body is dead even before their mind dies! Sounds like good times.

Okay, now I finally have time to really listen to the Diary mixtape...

 

I can't believe I have never really listened to Kraftwerk. Boy this stuff is fun.

 

I realised I should have made my submission this Talking Heads track:

 


I love the way this track ends in shouting.

Did anyone ever make a playlist on YT for the mix-tape?

I'm still not quite content though and want to try out more options when I find the time.

 


The large UE silicone from the TF10s work best for me.Brings the most balance to the sound :).

Just got back from my China trip. I was very tempted to buy some beats by dre for $20 a pop, but they really do sound as bad as people say. Not even worth the effort of packing it in my bag.

Hey dude, good to see you back on thread. I was wondering what happened to you. So you have fun on your trip?

I wonder if there was room in the bag for a Gaiwan... I'd leave The Beats on the street tongue_smile.gif for a Gaiwan!

Okay, I've been reading through this thread for a while.  While I haven't had much interaction with many of the regulars here (outside of Maxvla in general and MF in the LG thread), I guess there's no time like the present to jump into the thread.

 

Since I've noticed there are a lot of IEM users here, I thought I'd ask does anyone know anything about these?  It's a 3-way dynamic from Unique Melody.  It seems there's a dearth of information on them, and I kept getting errors when I tried to sign up for email notifications.  I've tried a few IEMs in the past, most notably the Westone 4R and Sennheiser IE80 with a few others scattered in there.  What I've found is that anything I've tried that employs balanced armatures has just sounded wrong to me.  I actually thought the 4R's sounded very good, but for some reason something sounded unnatural.  I think the bass output of the IE80 is way too strong, but it's the one IEM that's still in my stable since it doesn't sound fake to me.  I realize that I've probably got some sort of subconscious (is this the right term?) bias against BA's, but I don't really feel like undergoing any psychological treatment to get me to like BA IEMs.  I've also found that I'm a little sensitive to poorly implemented crossovers in speakers, so it could just be that the IEMs I've tried don't do a good job in this regard.  Perhaps I'd really change my tune if I used a set of tri-amped JH-16's, but I'm not really too keen to dump that much money down the IEM "rabbit hole" for now.  Regardless of the rest of this long-winded paragraph, I really am curious if anyone has heard anything about the new 3-way UM CIEM's (at least I assume they're customs).

 

Anyway,  Hello thread.  Nice to meet you.

 

Dave

I can't even pour tea with normal little teapots. A gaiwan would be asking for scalding. I think my dad has a few around the house though.

IEMs are stupid.

Drop both for a fresh (somewhat) pineapple.

Getting old is not necessarily a prerequisite for that.
