    New Belle & Sebastian album "Write About Love" free streaming on until Oct. 12th release

    Those are both great albums -- I'd definitely recommend Dear Catastrophe Waitress as well.  It's got some of my favorite Belle&Sebastian songs on it.

    New Belle & Sebastian album "Write About Love" free streaming on until Oct. 12th release

    I’m sure a lot of you will find this as exciting as I did when I first found out from a friend yesterday: Belle and Sebastian’s new album, Write About Love, due to be released Tuesday next week, is available to stream for free from up until its release.  ...

    Berlin headfi/HIFI-FORUM meet on Sept. 11th: post your impressions and pictures here

    Thanks for the suggestion, but after the ordeal of getting up there, I don't know if I'll be so adventurous again.  But Sepinho had actually wanted to go to The Bird except that apparently it has about 2 tables.  So he wasn't able to get a reservation.  If I do make it back, I will try a burger...

    Joint European Head-Fi/ Meet in Berlin, Sept. 11th. It's on!

    It looks like I'll be coming -- but if there's anyone who would like to come along for the ride from Freiburg to split the gas and keep me company, that would be great!  Although I suppose most people have already made travel arrangements already.  But if you haven't, or if you were going to...

    ER-4P vs. JH-13 Pro and ES3X

    Hi ephemere, I hope you don't mind if I bring this rather old thread back to the front. I saw that you had bought the JH13 after all, but then returned them for a refit. Since you also listen to classical music, love the ER-4S except for the comfort factor, and are not a big fan of the HD600, it...

    Guitar-fi anyone?

    I'm still looking for an amp, but I just bought my first nice electric guitar -- a Gibson 1961 SG Reissue. From the serial number, if I'm reading it right, I gather it was made in 2006. Sounded beautiful out of the Bogner in the store and my friend's Orange Drop. I'm thinking I might get a...

    Sign Up! Head-fi's 2008 Christmas CD Exchange!

    I've been away from Head-Fi for a little while and missed this thread. May I join in, preferably with a European member, by any chance? Anyone still without a partner?

    What's your saving strategy?

    Everything goes to my bank account. No way I'm going to put anything in the stock market these days. And I could use the money! Plus, the 3,8% I get here in my German bank account isn't so bad.

    Ralph Lauren Polo Blue -- I like it, anyway. Have only received comments from women a few times but it was mostly positive. Except for my best friend's girlfriend who said "man it stinks in here!" when the three of us were in a car together. But she wears grandma clothes and thinks it's indie.

    Looking for a laptop (again)

    Thanks guys, I ordered the Vaio. :-) Can't wait to try it out when I come visit Beantown for Thanksgiving!

    Looking for a laptop (again)

    Well, anyway, I think I've decided on this Vaio from Newegg: - SONY VAIO FW Series VGN-FW290JAB NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P8400(2.26GHz) 16.4" 4GB Memory 320GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 - Laptops / Notebooks Seems like a pretty damn good deal at...

    Looking for a laptop (again)

    Thanks for the quick and thorough response, I appreciate it! What about the RAM issue? I see that the Thinkpads use DDR3 memory at 1067MHz, while the Vaios use DDR2 (800). Is that a big difference? I'm still leaning towards the Sony for a few reasons -- the biggest 7200RPM drive from...

    Looking for a laptop (again)

    Thanks for the advice so far, guys! Yeah, Centrino 2 is something I'd want for sure, maybe one of the P series like the P9400. I guess a couple hundred extra megahertz in processor speed don't really make such a discernible difference nowadays, huh. But I really would like a cool...

    Which concert for a date?

    Take her to see music that she likes. You can impress her later with your high-falutin' tastes, and I do love classical music too, but it's not a great venue for an early date. If you go to a live rock show that she likes -- and that you like at least somewhat as well, of course -- it'll be more...

    Ahh, yes. That's the one. Thanks for the correction.

    I think Spearit Sound also has another location in Waltham, in case that's closer to you. I've never been there, though.

    The UK Headphone Society / UK CAN JAM 2009

    If this looks like a big thing that will seriously work out, and if it's near enough to a major airport with service from Basel, I'll do my best to make it. It would be cool to meet some of the European Head-Fiers! With regards to organization (sorry for the American spelling ), I would...

    For the (other) Euro members: do you ever realize how lucky you are?

    So I moved to Europe (specifically, Germany) a little less than two months ago. In America, I drove to work for about 45 minutes -- when there wasn't any traffic, that is -- and worked in a cubicle all day. My coworkers were great, my boss was great, the pay was great, and the taxes were WAY...

    Happy birthday, Tom! And on a Sunday, too. Lucky you! Hope you have a good one.

    Well, fortunately for me (though unfortunate with respect to potential meet attendance), I got the job in Germany I've been hoping for and will be moving over there at the beginning of July... so unless someone wants to have a mini-meet or something this month or next month, I won't be able to...

    Which college for business?

    You can get by without going to college for sure. I know people like this, even in positions where the official job description claims the person doing the job needs a college degree. But you'll have to work twice as hard without a college degree to get a job than you will with one. Whether it's...
