Have your sinuses cleared up yet, bigshot?

You should be able to play those FLAC files in QuickTime, if you're interested.

Borat's HiFi Country Western Sing-a-long:

 

 

 

In my hobby there is problem

And that problem is marketing

It tells many many lies

Because it knows it can

 

Throw marketing down the well (c'mon!)

So my hobby can be free (so my hobby can be free)

We must make purchasing easy

Then we have a big party

 

In my hobby there is problem

And that problem is the HiRes

It take everybody money

It never give it back

 

Throw the HiRes down the well!

So my hobby can be free (so my hobby can be free)

You must grab it by its horns

Then we have a big party

 

If you see the HiRes coming

You must be careful of its size

You must grab it by its inaudible range

And Ill tell you what to do

 

Everybody!

 

Throw the HiRes down the well! (throw the HiRes down the well)

So my hobby can be free (so my hobby can be free)

You must grab it by its horns (you must grab it by its horns)

Then we have a big party (then we'll have a big party)

 

Throw the HiRes down the well!  (throw the HiRes down the well!)

So my hobby can be free! (so my hobby can be free!)

You must grab it by its horns! (you must grab it by its horns!)

Then we haaaaave a biiiiig paaaartyyyyyyy!

Truth, honesty and integrity are all just so 20th century. The 21st century is all about lies, dishonesty and corruption.

Oh common. Don't say that people were somehow more moral and kinder in history's past. Any serious analysis proves otherwise. Have you read The Better Angels of Our Nature by Dr. Steven Pinker?

You're right, of course, but isn't mankind supposed to get more enlightened as time by and not less?

From our perspective, yes. But also depends on what subject matter. And sometimes change comes too slowly. 100 years is a long time compared to our lifespans but on the scale of the universe or even the evolution of humans, 100 years is barely anything.

The past had at least one thing going for it - no Justin Bieber.

If one reads the classics then there's not much reason for optimism, frankly.  The very same concoctions that were peddled in roman times are still being sold now (hairloss 'cures', skin 'rejuvenating' creams.....).    Surprises me that none of these guys uses a slogan like 'Over 2000 years' of positive experience, proven  formula'.  If one thing amazes me then it is how nothing ever changes in that respect, they just latch on to new technology (the entire audiophile cables myth).

Every time you blink, your brain has to remind you the world hasn't ended. No wonder we struggle to comprehend our place in history, the universe or audio science.

I visited Bath England once and visited the Roman bath house. I was amazed that in 70AD people threw coins in fountains and wells...they excavated a bunch from the well there, along with notes written on lead scraps that basically say.....to my girlfriend who cheated on me, die bitch. I laughed when I saw it and realized the human condition is changed little from 2000 years ago.

It's just called Bath, no need for the England bit. Have to groan everyone I watch an American film and they refer to London, England or Paris, France.

When you saw the film Paris, Texas, did you groan then?
I believe there is a London in Ontario.
Even Bergen can be found in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, probably in the states as well.

Except nobody but an American would wonder whether you meant London in England or London in Ontario.
