Alright kiddies, story time.

About a week ago, I was "studying" with a few friends (well, it started as studying, but as usual it turned into a joke around, rate women by whether or not you would do them thing.... yeah) and I had my trusty UE6000's with me. It's not like their new, and my friends have seen them plenty of times before, but one of them decided he wanted to try them out. I let him use his own source so I have no idea about the sound quality (not like the UE6000's are a very revealing headphones or anything) or what music he was listening to. He listened for a few minutes, took them off, said "f**** you, I don't need any more reasons to spend my money" and just laughed. I told him that they were $200 but could be now found for $100. I don't think he'll convert or anything, but it's nice to see a positive, if hilarious, reaction out of people.

 

PS: I did get some studying done later that day (can't slack off too much at my age) :D

I think he meant "f***s." Just saying.

So wait, he therefore said "F'ks you, I don't need any more reasons to spend my money."

The "s" doesn't apply in that case, he have an extra "*".

LOL I think it was just a joke about the silly censorship on here. Like if they blank out the word with asterisks no one knows what the word was supposed to be.

post #2739 of 3818
I don't suppose the censorship here is too tight, most people here just don't swear all that much, aside for the Schiit-puns. I just read a pretty colourful describtion of the guy who was reviewing the upcoming HE-560.

LOL.

 

There's this one guy called @messi who says he's the real Lionel Messi. However, he says he can't exactly prove it because this is, after all, the Internet.

But I'm willing to bet that @ SlimShadyMJ is not the real Slim Shady. One convincing reason is because, well, Slim Shady is simply an alter ego of ol' Eminem. 

 

Also, what does the "MJ" stand for? Michael Jackson? Michael Jordan? Magic Johnson?

 

Whatever I just said back there, we all know we're just playing along.

 

Oh yeah, on-topic this time: blah blah headphones blah blah conversion blah blah Beats is better blah blah blah

LOL, yep, your right. It was a joke, though I in no way meant it to be a criticism of censorship on this site. I've had no problem with this site in  that regard.

Haha, I'm not the actual "real slim shady". Kinda glad too, Slim's a sociopath lol. Just listen to Kim.

MJ = Michael Jackson. My favourite artist.... Ever,

 

On Topic: I was at my cousins today and a conversation strung up because he bought a CD (Tupac something or another -- it's basically trash) when he already had the songs on his desktop. They were Youtube rips (I did the same with Ok Computer, since I had it in 320 MP3). So my brother decided to get on his case and say he wasted money. I hear this, and being as awesome as I am, I come to inject some reason and logic into this convo. I explain that CD's have much better sound quality than what he already has on his PC. Nope. My brother doesn't want to believe it. Then, he turns it against me. I had a convo with him a few days ago about buying headphones (he started it) where I basically said "having different headphones for different genres would be nice and something I'm going to do". He brings that up. All of the sudden, I'm the moron. They turned on me so fast it's unbelievable. It went on for a while, until I finally just gave up and said "just try it and see (holding JVC HA FRD80). They didn't. 

In the end, non audiophiles sometimes react with hostility (I guess is the right word)

 

Sorry for rambling,

Sorry for rambling,

Tupac? Uhh, I think that's 2-Pac. Quoting a line from Eminem's "Rap God,"

Quote:
Me? I'm a product of Rakim, Lakim Shabazz, 2-Pac, M.W.A., Cube, hey, Doc, Ren, Yella, Easy, thank you, they got Slim.

The hostile type of gencom (general consumer; I like to use this term because it sounds highly derogatory) is the most annoying type. But then again, there are audiophiles who are pretty hostile when it comes to defending their personal opinion. To me, those are even more annoying.

post #2745 of 3818

Tupac Shakur is his actual name, 2-Pac is a stage name. Did you just say Tupac is trash? .....!

 

 

Anywhoo, I showed a mate of mine my Signature DJ, his reaction "Its clear, but not enough bass, you need to get Skull Crushers..."
