Themed Monthly Avatar Committee (TMAC) discussion thread - Page 85

post #1261 of 11289

Funny seeing that thread brought up again, mainly because it was started by JamesMcProgger. Or McFrogger, as a few other Head-Fi'ers and I affectionately called him. Haven't heard from him in ages, probably because he must have gotten himself permabanned (which shouldn't surprise anybody who knew him on here).

Didn't he get Banned, while still serving a Ban? blink.gif I just realized it's against TOS to discuss said Bans...

Yeah, I have no idea what actually happened. I just know he's been gone a long time, and that whatever happened, it happened while I was taking a long break from Head-Fi. I just keep forgetting it was his thread. It pops up on occasion and it's always amusing when it does.

It's ironic but, this month's theme could have saved many a head-fier...rolleyes.gif

You're getting the hang of it.  Just need a little more tension in the situation to make it more apt, then it's all good.

Sometimes, it serves as a nice PSA as well... reminding people that something is on the verge of getting ugly.

I swear, I can't keep up, this is like a live chatroom! XD


This ain't nothing compared to the anime thread LOL. That's how I got HS in 2 months time.

 

Hey, this is pretty good for the subject matter!  The level of interest in anime is probably way bigger than the level of interest in avatars.  So proportionately, we are kicking a whole lotta ass right now.

Zombieland is a fantastic flick.  The text overlays from that movie remind me of Grid:  Race Driver.

Of course!  Should make a photo T-shirt for her that has your face on it.  Better yet, use one of the composite faces we made for anonymity!

 

So why do I always capitalize the "T" in "T-shirts" you may wonder?  Because a lower case t just wouldn't make sense visually.  Think about it.

Yeah, it is.  But sometimes, it's the only way to follow a convo... especially days after the fact.  Maybe one day I'll somehow manage to work recursion in as well!  eek.gif  Then I'll reach the last dragon and acquire the glow.

I think it takes a lot more vanity (and acquaintances) to properly maintain such accounts.  In the end, just another time suck.  I'll stick with music, cans, and HF for now.

A fair amount I would think.  Was a pretty popular career field for a while.

LOL, once every few hours would probably be better.  Otherwise it's a whole lot of reading.  And by the time you post a response, that topic would have been over for 30 posts or so.  It runs at a blistering pace that one...

Music#### might have talked about it a few hours ago, then wiped it out so we'll never know.

I'll probably find out next semester whether or not I'll be able to hack it.

 

Working on anything fun at the moment?  I did that for about 15 years or so.  Had to do a fair bit of the design aspect as well... which explains the Photoshop skills.

I know a guy who's scoring a WHOLE lotta gear from a dude in his 70s.  It's all first rate gear that's being liquidated because the old fart just can't hear anymore.  I got to thinking about that and it made me sad.  frown.gif  I take care of my ears, but I know that there's gonna come a day when I can't enjoy music the way I used to.  Not to mention death.  Being dead is going severely change my ability to appreciate headphones (and music in general to a certain degree).

Oh I totally forgot about B&H!  Surprising since I just placed an order with them... I think.  Holidays, can't keep track of the orders anymore.

LOL, oh I don't know about that.  You know that it would have been just a matter of time before someone put an FR graph or silver cables into an avatar.  Then all bets are off...

It's less about anime and more about me proving how right I am and bowei being wrong all the time. Which is partly true btw.

Yeah, we're probably on par caffeine-wise then.  I used to be a Mountain Dew junkie, but the sugar levels there are just astounding.  You ever get caffeine withdrawal headaches?

LOL, +1

 

BTW, I say we all go for different movie posters for each person. So the overall theme is Jude and his celebrity status (at least here around these parts).  Plus, variety is the spice of life.  We'll make sure to embed the TMAC tag of course.  What do y'all think about that?

How long will that deal last? And what's the consensus on the UE700? I know of the A151 though. Either case, I can't get it to ship here to Russia anyway, since that's what they decide to put in as their policy for electronic items. >_>

The A151 deal is probably going to be on for a couple more hours (or until stock runs out).  The UE 700 deal, no idea.  Are you interested?  I don't know how much shipping will be to Russia, but I can help forward it along if you want.  I picked up the A151, but passed on the UE 700 (mainly because of build quality issues).

Nah I'm good. Just slightly interested since I remember asking for a recc. and the A151 came out. Read about it some more and decided it's not really my cup of tea. Thanks for the offer though.
