    The Jeans-fi thread

    So there is life after Head-Fi I've not got into any other brands of jeans, they just seem too expensive. I pretty much only wear Levi's, some of my oldest pairs are at least 7 years old and still going with some repairs here and there. The quality control on newer Levi's (3-4 years perhaps)...

    Rate the video games you're currently playing

    Ah, Modern Warfare 2, I had it a few days ago for PC and it is everything everyone said about it: lag, no map choice, lag, no determining who you play with, lag, no way of kicking abusive/offensive/cheating players oh and er lag. All of which creates a frustrating mix because you have a game...

    The Flaming Lips: Enbryonic

    Just got Embryonic yesterday and three things I would like to say: 1) IT'S VERY LOUD!!! The drums and bass, just wow, so visceral. 2) I'm liking this much more than At War With The Mystics and it's also a very strong contender for my favourite album of 2009 3) On track 2 (The Sparrow Looks...

    Guitar-fi anyone?

    The lace sensors will be different from regular pickups so it's worth checking it out before buying. Anyone used/owned a Fulltone Fulldrive 2 Mosfet? I have one on the way to add some life to my amp's clean channel - can't afford a Peavey Classic 30, let alone a Fender Deluxe Reverb I'm...

    Dubstep Anyone?

    I've seen Plastician and Benga, both were great, especially Benga, my shoes are permanently scarred from that night lol. Don't actually have that much dubstep in my music collection though. Check out Skream's Watch the Ride mix, that's rather tasty, everything he does is just filthy. Burial...

    my bad experience with eBay...

    Glad to hear it all worked out. I've had great transactions on eBay thus far so stories like yours will remind me to be cautious.

    Grizzly Bear

    Yellow House is very good, a solid 'debut' from the whole group. I'm still waiting for Veckatimest to fall in price, it's been stuck at the £8.50 mark on Amazon for ages (yes I'm a tight git). Interesting version of 'Knife': YouTube - #10.4 - Grizzly bear - The Knife 'Stillness Is The...

    I'm at Leicester uni, which has a lot of international students so don't confuse me for one of them lol, from Birmingham originally though. 50% Asian?! That's insane! On the subject of Chungs, Alexa Chung who used to present T4 on Channel 4 is fittttttttttt

    What's good enough?

    I am actually really enjoying the combination of an ipod classic and SE420, perhaps because the SE420 is a big improvement over the e4. I'm now quite satisfied with this set-up, something which I never though I'd say having downgraded from NAD c542 --> Gilmore Lite --> SA5000. In fact so much...

    The John Zorn Thread

    Does anyone have the complete naked city collection? The remastered ones of all their albums in one box set? Its pretty hefty but it makes sense to me to get that rather than all the individual albums one by one. I can heartily recommend Live at Tonic 2001, particularly if you're looking for...

    Should I cancel my order for HD595? Budget £100~

    They're really good headphones, for their price I was very satisfied. But then the upgrade bug kicked in and made want even better headphones I used them for all the things you've mentioned and they sound great out of anything - you absolutely don't require (in my opinion of course) an amp to...

    Used CDs - Question to EU residents

    Amazon's third-party sellers are very good, most of my my CDs are bought in this way. eBay is handy, just watch for sellers who are offloading a bunch of CDs at once - you can usually get a few cheap CDs where no one bids on them.
