    Go Tar-heels.

    Ellington was clutch for the Heels that game! I was glad to see that OT win, helps me think this year's team won't collapse when they have trouble putting a team away, like last year's team did in the NCAA tourney against Georgetown.

    Paramount to likely drop HD-DVD

    Lol. At this point, I can't tell if this thread is either: A) People secretly making fun of Yukon Trooper by ignoring him, or B) A great way of finding out which people are too lazy to read more than just the thread title.

    What are you playing, right now?

    Juggling several games... Portal (cleared all normal and advanced maps, not sure if I want to do the trial versions of them), Super Mario Galaxy, and Arcana Heart (imported 2D fighter). Kinda Metroid Prime 3, but I got stuck at an early boss and put it on long-term hold, so yeah... And after...

    MSB Link DAC overlooked?

    I had a Dan Wright-modded MSB Link DAC III many years ago. It sounded quite good... somewhat warm, definitely musical, reasonably good on details. I tried an Art DI/O DAC w/ upgraded PSU (no improvement, sterile tonality), ARC CD3 (a step above, but didn't like overall tonality), and an Arcam...

    What are you eating now?

    Mmm, I think I'm in the mood for Mongolian BBQ for lunch! That said, right now I'm having one glazed donut and one maple-frosted donut from Dunkin' Donuts.

    K2 HD recording - a Stunning Listening Experience

    Had a chance to listen to this yesterday, and I'm very impressed. I would certainly recommend this for use as a reference CD, and it has many engaging tracks. My only caveat is you'll need at least one additional reference if you are a fan of music that focuses on the following: male vocals...

    Pizza, 90 minute ETA!!!

    I always place pick-up online orders with Papa Johns (when I order from them at all... usually order from a local non-chain place which is excellent), it's turned out very consistent. I can't imagine 90 minute waits, unless you order on Super Bowl Sunday or something. The rare times I do...

    24 Season 6 finale - your thoughts

    I was really disappointed in the finale. Many things seemed forgotten or thrown in at random (what happened with the security audit guy, Chloe pregnant out of nowhere, Wayne's status, severe lack of action (though at least Josh finally got some guts), etc...). Jack's speeches at the very end...

    Belittle my taste in music!

    I generally don't care for techno, but the few exceptions usually are either trance or have strong trance elements.

    Best Tori Amos Album?

    My favorites are Little Earthquakes and From the Choirgirl Hotel. Which I like the most depends on if I'm in the mood for something a little softer (Little Earthquakes) or a little more aggressive (From the Choirgirl Hotel). Incidentally, these respective albums also have my two favorite songs...

    14 Digital amps Shootout by & GR Research

    I saw this the other day, but didn't realize they used the Panny's analog input. Did they use the analog input of all the others as well? Seems odd to not keep the signal path as pure as possible, in this case. I did see comments at the end that some of their individual reviewers will be...

    Any anime series that you've been enjoying?

    I would like to second Hidamari Sketch, to me it's a fun combination of Azumanga and PPD. I tried Manabi Straight, but it just wasn't doing anything for me after a few episodes, for some reason. Maybe I'll re-visit it later. I seriously cannot wait for M.G.L.N. StrikerS, it's only a few days...

    Quote: Originally Posted by GlendaleViper Vocals are just another instrument. I don't hear words when they're set to music, so I could care less about the language. I'm more interested in the voice itself, and the rhythm the syllables create. Seconding this. I do appreciate good...

    Job offer but moral dilemma... what say you Head-fi?

    Take the new job, definitely. Loyalty is a wonderful thing, but the problem is I seriously doubt your current boss (unless he's the owner/CEO of the company) can possibly guarantee you won't be laid off, great guy or not. You've said there's already been two rounds, it's not in your best...
