I never heard so much Schiit in my life, until I got to Head-Fi.

It's a good example of repurposing a word.

The word "gay" didn't acquire its homosexual meaning until fairly recently.

Where I live, the word "bugger" has always been a coarse synonym for "oops" or "damn it" or "person", depending on context. Then Toyota NZ came out with the following ad campaign:

(Note that the French subtitles translate better to something else...)

Jason, you've done a great job reimagining Schiit.

I'm hooked on this Schiit!

Looking forward to the next installment!

 

Already up to my ears in schiit for now, though!

 

Maybe in the future :D

Damn, that last line sounded like something from an action movie. Awesome.

I really enjoy reading about Schiit, especially since the name "hit home". First time I read about Schiit I thought: "Schiit? Like ****? (since germans do say the equivalent to **** pretty often) Or like Schiit, after islamic denomination (Shia)? And why? But why then give the products names from the Snorra Edda?"

My confusion was pretty much perfect at that time.

So thank you for clearing all that up. Now I can buy one of your devices in peace :D

 

 

Skál!

This thread is far more entertaining than most of cinema craps out there.

 

Thank you Jason for sharing your epic quest with us, in such an eloquent and instructive way.

By the way we are in a desperate needing of pictures ! Where are the vintage electronics and all the stuff you talked about !?

Indeed it is. It is actually a picture of Mike Ness.

I thought it might be your axe. One of my buds has an old Paul (1954 if I remember) with those non-humbucker single coil pickups.

Over on ADVrider a thread was started…

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=956618

RAgnarok

 

Tomorrow is the announced day of the RAgnarok, much to the consternation of all norse god followers everywhere.

 

I figure that Schiit is gunna take advantage and claim that tomorrow is just a practice run, when they announce that Ragnarok is here at long last.  :atsmile:

I say clean this thread up for Jason's chapters only; and create a new reaction thread for members' comments.

How about dropping all of this Schiit and leave whatever Schiit is lying around alone and just move forward,. This newest discussion about what to do is taking to more space than the brief Google diversion. Just Say'in.
